Lutherans and Catholics: From Conflict to Communion


Lutherans and Catholics: From Conflict to Communion









Also from our Catholic side, our own conviction is 'Ecclesia semper reformanda' - that the life of the Church has to be reformed all the time, in every age, so we have this common intention of reform on both sides....what we could do in this document is to indicate the main themes of the theology of Martin Luther in lifht of our own ecumenical dialogue, showing that many ideas of Martin Luther have been issues for the whole Church and important elements of renovation of the Church.....
This document could be a basis for all sorts of ecumenical dialogues....with other partners because it addresses the basic intention necessary reform of the Church and also addresses our own relationship with God"
The full text of the document ‘From Conflict to Communion’ is available from the German Evangelische Verlangsanstalt and Bonifatius publishing house.  http://www.facultas.at/list?autor=&titel=%E2%80%98From+Conflict+to+Communion%E2%80%99&verlag=&sw=&isbn=&preis_von=&preis_bis=&erscheinungsjahr=
