True doctrine serves Church unity, Pope tells CDF

Catholic World News - January 15, 2010

In a January 15 meeting with members of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Pope Benedict XVI said that the congregation-- which he had headed of years-- serves the "ministry of unity" in the universal Church by ensuring a "commitment to doctrinal fidelity." The Petrine ministry is devoted to the unity of the faithful, he said, and the doctrinal congregation helps the Pontiff to preserve that unity by ensuring the accurate presentation of the Gospel truths that have been handed down through the ages. The accuracy of the message, he added, is essential to the success of "the Church's evangelizing activity unto the end of time."
