Pope Francis calls on Christian churches give unified answers to social problems

Pope Francis has asked that all Christian denominations provide consistent answers on issues like religious freedom, immigration or armed conflict. His remarks came during a meeting about ecumenism with representatives of all Christian churches in Europe. POPE FRANCIS "The Committee that you are now part of is designed to assist the ecumenical journey in Europe, where many of the divisions that still exist among Christians began.â? The Pope highlighted the progress of ecumenism. And he said that dialogue, with all its problems and obstacles, is already a good sign that Christians are moving toward reconciliation.  POPE FRANCIS "For a long time, the Christians of this continent have been fighting against each other. Today, thank God, the situation is very different.â? Also in attendance were Cardinal Péter ErdÅ?, who chairs the Council of European Episcopal Conferences; and Anglican Reverend Christopher Hill, chairman of the Conference of European Churches.
