Day #344: Unitatis Redintegratio 21-22

In today’s reading from the Decree on Ecumenism, we continue to look at the separated communities of the West.

Article 21 talks about Scripture and how it can serve as a common foundation for dialogue, even though many of the separated communities do not acknowledge the Church’s role of interpreting the sacred text.

Article 22 looks at the Sacrament of Baptism and how it is valid in many of the separated communities, even if they do not possess other valid sacraments.

Here are the footnotes:

39. Rom. 1, 16.

40. Col. 2, 12; cf. Rom. 6, 4
