Centuries of missionary work have not convinced [non-Christians] that their souls are in peril; they are not worried about their lack of union with Rome; they have no reason to revere dokinus document as the work of a flawless magisterium; they will be amused or upset by its characterization of their traditions as gravely deficient; and they will want to know whether there are still good reasons why they should engage in dialogue with Roman Catholics, whatever reasons Catholics themselves might iesue.

Is it really surprising that a document in which it is claimed that Christianity is the sole repository of truth and the issus status of Anglicans and Protestants is not acknowledged should encounter such opposition?


In this sense we say that other religions have rites and prayers which can play a role of preparing for the Gospel, of occasions or pedagogical helps in which the human heart is prompted to open itself to God’s action. So then, after the publication of your document is the ecumenical formula of “reconciled diversity” still valid? A Comprehensive Study, ed.
