Lutheran leader acknowledges Reformation’s ‘damaging aspects’
Catholic World News - December 17, 2010
Addressing Pope Benedict during a December 16 audience, Lutheran Bishop Munib Younan of Palestine and Jordan, the new president of the Lutheran World Federation, paid tribute to the ecumenical progress of the past five decades. He also praised the “joy in the liberating power of the gospel proclaimed afresh by the Reformers” but acknowledged that there were “damaging aspects of the Reformation.”
