Today in the Decree on Ecumenism, we finish up Chapter I on “Catholic Principles on Ecumenism.”
We looked at the Big Picture of where the Church fits into Salvation History (article 2). Then we looked at the divisions that have cropped up in history (article 3). The Council Fathers complete the chapter by looking at the principles of ecumenism to work towards healing those divisions and bringing about unity.
Here are the footnotes:
26. Cf. Eph. 5, 27.
