breakthrough!

By Diogenes (articles ) | Nov 23, 2006

Catholic and Anglican agree: agreement would be agreeable.

The conclusion of the "Common Declaration of Pope Benedict XVI and the Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams":

Mindful of our forty years of dialogue, and of the witness of the holy men and women common to our traditions, including Mary the Theotókos, Saints Peter and Paul, Benedict, Gregory the Great, and Augustine of Canterbury, we pledge ourselves to more fervent prayer and a more dedicated endeavour to welcome and live by that truth into which the Spirit of the Lord wishes to lead his disciples (cf. Jn 16:13). Confident of the apostolic hope "that he who has begun this good work in you will bring it to completion"(cf. Phil 1:6), we believe that if we can together be God’s instruments in calling all Christians to a deeper obedience to our Lord, we will also draw closer to each other, finding in his will the fullness of unity and common life to which he invites us.

    How about a bit of compassion for the poor slobs who have to work in the Vatican's ecumenical office?

    I got three lines into the Common Declaration and fell asleep. Chloroform in print?
