How the catholic church after Vatican II took over the leadership of the world ecumenical movement
The last several popes have made the quest for Church unity an item of the highest priority on their agendas. This has been true to perhaps a much greater extent than most Catholics, and indeed most Protestants, have generally realized. John Paul II put more personal time and effort into seeking improved relations with our fellow Christians, than into almost anything else. From the time of his election to the chair of Peter in 2005, Benedict XVI has followed the same pattern. These acted in response to a mandate of the Second Vatical Council which inaugurated a whole new era in ecumenism for the Catholic Church. The subject of ecumenism - the Church's relations with other Christians, and the search for Christian unity - is dealt with in this extraordinarly well-researched and readable book. May it foster in all who read it a geater understanding and love of the Church which Jesus Christ founded 2000 years ago.
