The Fellowship Assembles….

First the Glics.

Now the Lutherans.

I always had a disdain for the modern approach to “ecumenical dialogue”.  In many respects, it was dishonest and goofy.

Good to see REAL unity – that is, Christians being united with the Pope – is starting to gain some traction.

One more example that the liberals are losing ground fast.

  1. Google

    “Dominus Iesus Kasper vs. Ratzinger”.

    One is Pope. One is not.

    One finally put an end to the Anglican-Catholic “dialogue” and provided a real means for Communion; the other wrung his hands.

    One is for genuine ecumenism. The other is about watering down Catholic teaching.

  2. So the Pope hasn’t known for the last five years, that Card. Kasper is “about watering down Catholic teaching”?

    Or he knows, and doesn’t care?

    Or he knows, but there’s no one else on the face of Catholicism that is qualified for Kasper’s former position?

    What alternative am I missing?

    I repeat my two questions:

    1. Modern approach?
    2. Catholic approach?

    I want to see if you can talk about these specifically for longer than a sound-bite.

    You will have to ask the Holy Father why he kept Kasper in his place, but that hardly takes away from the rather diametrically opposing views of what true unity is about. Anyone who has followed their disagreements on this subject and others like reception of the Eucharist while being “remarried” http://cathnews.acu.edu.au/510/125.php. And I am sure it does not end there. And, of course, we know what the Holy Father did in basically ignoring Kasper in strking the deal with the Traditional Anglicans. If that doesn’t tell you all you need to know about the different approaches, then nothing will, Kelly.

    I’m not an expert in theology or Church unity. However, if you’ve been following what has happened during the past 40 years in ecumenical discussions, especially the particular situation in Great Britain and with the Pope’s recent dramatic move to exclude the Professional Ecumenists from the deal of Anglicans seeking reunion with Rome as a body, you’ll know exactly what I mean.

    JP II himself had complained about the English Bishops when Traditional Anglicans had expressed their hope to come into the Church as a body. The English bishops put the boots to the idea. But Benedict had seen enough by the time he became Pope, and by-passed them completely.

    You might think “sound bites” are beneath you, Kelly, but the simple facts still have to be confronted.
