CWN Editor's Note: A “shared commitment to ecumenism is an essential requirement of the faith we profess; it stems from our very identity as Christ’s followers,” Pope Francis said on January 19 to members of a delegation from the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland. Since the reign of St. John Paul II, such meetings between the Pope and a Finnish Lutheran delegation have been a regular occurrence in January.
