January 26, 2016

At the same time, said Cardinal Kurt Koch, the Pope’s ecumenical vision has four noteworthy particular characteristics: “the ecumenism of charity, brotherhood and friendship”; “the ecumenism of truth,” expressed in theological dialogue; spiritual ecumenism, expressed in prayer; and the “ecumenism of blood.”
