CWN Editor's Note: Speaking on June 21 in Geneva, where he joined in celebrations for the 70th anniversary of the World Council of Churches (video), Pope Francis said that ecumenical work requires “rejecting worldliness.” The Pontiff remarked that from the world’s perspective, ecumenism may be seen as “a great enterprise operating at a loss.” Only the faithful, knowing that the work “requires constant conversion,” recognize its true value.
