Day #343: Unitatis Redintegratio 19-20

In today’s reading from the Decree on Ecumenism, we move onto the second section of the final chapter by taking a look at the “Separated Churches and Ecclesial Communities in the West.”

Article 19 intorduces the section with an acknowledgement that the wide variety of differences with these ecclesial communities (both with the Catholic Church and with each other) makes it difficult to describe in detail.  Nevertheless, the Council Fathers state their hope that what follows will serve as a solid basis for dialogue.

Article 20 speaks of those groups that emphasize the one mediation of Christ and positively affirms that they “look to Christ as the source and center of Church unity.”
