Ecumenism calls for kindness, justice – pope

January 28, 2013

Like the individual path to holiness, the ecumenical path to Christian unity requires justice, kindness and humility, Pope Benedict told members of a pilgrimage from the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland.

The path of progress in the ecumenical journey, he said Jan. 17, “demands that we become ever more united in prayer, ever more committed to the pursuit of holiness and ever more engaged in the areas of theological research and cooperation in the service of a just and fraternal society.”
