In the Wake of the Week for Christian Unity
In the following article Pope Benedict XVI tells us what true ecumenism requires: conversion. The personal integrity of every Catholic vis-a-vis Christ, the Church, and his neighbor will provide a most compelling witness to the Truth-Seeker. When Catholics give a lackluster witness, "what good is there to this Catholicism they claim to represent?" The recent Anglican ordinariate demonstrates how Rome is the ideal rallying point for Christians who are, on one hand, disenfranchised with their current Church and, on the other hand, recognize the need for Truth, Beauty, and Goodness are these are found in Catholic Doctrine, Liturgy, Morality, and Prayer. However difficult they may seem, whatever challenges they may present to insider and outsider alike, there is no substitute.
