we (might) hold these truths

By Diogenes (articles - email) | Feb 09, 2010

An ecumenical catechism: what a wonderful idea, Cardinal Kasper! We can work out a careful formulation of the beliefs that all professed Christians hold in common--- if there are any.

Actually, since new Protestant bodies are created every week, and even the old established groups change their doctrines occasionally, any "ecumenical catechism" would need to be updated and revised constantly. It would be a grueling, time-consuming task. And I know just the right man for the job. With so much work to be done, I suppose he'd have to give up his current post as president of the Pontifical Council for Christian Unity, but that's a small sacrifice for such a worthy project.
