Chapter Summary

The author hopes that the modern ecumenical movement, which the Catholic Church joined in 1964 at the second Vatican Council, may begin the process of healing painful memories and building bridges of faith and bonds of communion which will help the next millennium reverse the animosities of the last 500 years. For the Catholic Church, the Declaration on Religious Liberty (1965) marks a basis from which the healing of memories can begin. During the height of that discussion, Easter European Reformed relations were the key focus in the debate. This chapter briefly discusses the three things: 1) Catholic ecumenical commitments, 2) the progress of the Reformed Catholic dialogue, and 3) some specific challenges in Reformed and Catholic relations.

Keywords: Catholic reconciliation; Easter European Reformed relation; ecumenical movement; Jesus Christ; second Vatican Council; Western church
