A New document that reveals agreements between Catholic and Lutheran

As the 500th anniversary of the 95 Theses approaches, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and the Bishops’ Committee for Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops have issued a 120-page document highlighting points of agreement between Lutherans and Catholics.

 

The document, entitled Declaration on the Way: Church, Ministry and Eucharist, “represents in concrete form an opportunity for Lutherans and Catholics to join together now in a unifying manner on a way finally to full communion,” said Auxiliary Bishop Denis Madden of Baltimore.

 

“The Bishops’ Committee on Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs affirmed the 32 agreed statements and commended the Declaration on the Way to Cardinal [Kurt] Koch, president of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, for further reflection and action,” the document notes. “The Declaration is not a statement of the full body of bishops of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.”

    How does the Missouri Synod weigh in?

      Mike, I’d like to know as well

    The Missouri Synod doesn’t believe in ecumenical endeavors…but believing they are in sole possession of the truth doesn’t require them to. They also think Leo X is still pope.
