Day #340: Unitatis Redintegratio 15

Today in the Decree on Ecumenism, we continue our discussion of the Eastern Churches.

Article 15 acknowledges the “very rich liturgical and spiritual heritage of the Eastern Churches.”  Importantly, the Council Fathers here affirm that the Eastern Churches possess true and valid sacraments in light of their valid apostolic succession.

Here are the footnotes:

35. 2 Petr. 1, 4.

36. Cf. S. IOANNES CHRYSOSTOMOS, In loannem Homelia XLVI, PG 59, 260-262.
