Pope visits Rome's Lutheran parish
Catholic World News - March 15, 2010
Pope Benedict XVI visited an Evangelical Lutheran church in Rome on Sunday afternoon, March 14. The Pontiff and the pastor, Rev. Jens-Martin Kruse, each delivered short homilies during an ecumenical service.
"We must not content ourselves with the successes of ecumenism over recent years, because we still cannot drink from the same chalice or gather together around the same altar," the Pope said. "We must entrust ourselves to the Lord, because He is the only one Who can give us unity. "
