Chapter Summary

The text, The Ordained Ministry, of the 1971 meeting of the commission in Louvain contains a separate chapter about mutual recognition of ministries: "VII Mutual Acceptance of Ministry." The most frequent criticism is connected with a feeling of imbalance in what is being asked of episcopal and non-episcopal churches. The episcopal churches are asked only to recognize the apostolicity of the ordained ministry and the exercise of a ministry of oversight within the non-episcopal churches, while the non-episcopal churches are asked to carry out a fundamental change of their church structure.
