    The Decree on Ecumenism stands out as a wonderfully concise and balanced summary of Catholic principles. It bears up extremely well after the passage of a quarter of a century. The ultimate goal of ecumenism, according to the Decree, is the full visible unity of all Christians in a single communion. This book discusses the different understandings of ‘catholicity’ that emerged in the interactions between the Church of England and other churches – particularly the Roman Catholic Church and later the Old Catholic Churches – from the early s to the early s. It presents a pre-history of ecumenism, which isolates some of the most distinctive features of the ecclesiological Author: Mark D. Chapman.

    Some Catholics think that ecumenism compromises their faith and is an admission of an insufficiency in the Catholic Church, which they are not ready to accept. In some countries with a large Catholic majority, the small number of Christians belonging to other Churches is offered as a justification for the lack of ecumenical initiative. Mark Chapman’s new book casts an eye on the seemingly narrow topic of ecumenical relations between Anglicans and Catholics in the nineteenth century. Yet the study provides a window into broader questions of Christian doctrine and authority and their relationships to national identity, history, and international relations in the nineteenth.

He’s a sinner. Only the nail-scarred, risen Savior, JESUS CHRIST, can forgive and save you from sin and eternal hell. There is no purgatory-it’s a lie. Those who seek to promulgate the idea that an idol worshiping Catholic can be a Christian, are guilty of sending those people to hell – eternal souls they could have otherwise helped to become.

Contrary to what some "traditionalist" Catholics say, there is such a thing as authentic ecumenism -- and it is essential for Christian unity. Catholics are encouraged by the Apostolate to ‘avail themselves more often of the spiritual riches of the Eastern Fathers’ in contemplative prayer.

The Decree on Ecumenism also emphasises the importance of preserving the spiritual heritage of the Eastern Churches, and the hope of reconciliation between Christians in the East and West (ibid). When ecumenism was strictly a Protestant project during the first half of the 20th century, Rome showed little or no desire to participate, making it clear that, for Catholics, meaningful ecumenism would be possible only when those who had broken the unity of the "one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church" showed themselves willing to "return /5(2).

There was some softening of Catholic concerns about ecumenism over the decades. There was interest among some theologians such as the Dominican priest Yves Congar—who much later was named a Cardinal by Pope John Paul II—in ecumenical matters.

Congar wrote his groundbreaking book on Christian disunity in Ecumenism and non-denominational or post-denominational movements are not necessarily the same thing. Historic divisions in Christianity Christian denominations today.

If ecumenism is the quest for Christian unity, it must be understood what the divisions are which must be overcome.

The Catholic Church’s ecumenical movement truly began with the Second Vatican Council’s Decree on Ecumenism, Unitatis Redintegratio.
