Day #338: Unitatis Redintegratio 13

in today’s reading from the Decree on Ecumenism, we begin the document’s final chapter on “Churches and Ecclesiastical Communities Separated from the Roman Apostolic See.”

Article 13 introduces this chapter which is broken down into two sections: Eastern Churches and Western Ecclesial Communities.  These represent the principal divisions that have come at different points in history: the Great Schism and the Protestant Reformation.  The Council wants to look at these differing situations to see how ecumenism will look like in the different groups.

No footnotes.
