Christian unity is a mandate from Christ

Franciscan sister says ecumenical discussions need to be more than splitting theological hairs

The B.C. Catholic has an article from Chris Miller of the Western Catholic Reporter about a Franciscan sister's call for greater Christian unity:
Ecumenical dialogue is not about sitting around a table, splitting theological hairs and talking until everyone is in agreement.

That is not what ecumenical dialogue is all about, says Sister Lorelei Fuchs.

Fuchs said ecumenical dialogue is a dialogue of love, mutually informing one another and forming one another, seeing Christ in the other person, regardless of the Church he or she attends.

“These are hard ecumenical times. But I am convinced that the time to continue doing something is when other people stop doing it. Unity is not a Christian hobby; it is really a mandate of Christ,” said Fuchs.
