Day #335: Unitatis Redintegratio 8

In today’s reading from the Decree on Ecumenism, we continue to look at ecumenism in practice.

Article 8 gives a name to the personal “change of heart” discussed yesterday as it pertains to the topic at hand: “spiritual ecumenism.”  Here the Council Fathers distinguish between praying in common (which is generall encouraged) and worshipping in common (which is generally forbidden).

Here are the footnotes:

32. Jn. 17, 21.

33. Mt. 18, 20.
