The Ecumenical Review, an ecumenical quarterly magazine published on behalf of the World Council of Churches (WCC), this month brings extensive tribute to paus Franciscus, on the occasion of the fourth anniversary of his election. The article draws attention in particular to the prophetic leadership of Francis in the rapprochement with the other Christian Churches.
The author mainly discussed the presence of paus Franciscus at the opening of the celebrations of the 500th anniversary of the beginning of the Reformation in the Swedish city of Lund and the speeches and documents that appeared in the wake of it with his blessing. For the real mutual recognition of the Christian Churches and their reconciliation there is a need for a utopian way of thinking, who knows how to overcome the obstacles on the path of ecumenical rapprochement.
The Ecumenical Review also looks back at the meeting of the Central Committee in Trondheim and brings an interview with Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I, on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of his election.
