Quotations
  • David Bennett at Per Christum: Catholics practice a self-differentiated ecumenism, which is to say we will work with others when possible, pray together, and work for unity, but we aren’t going to pretend serious differences don’t exist just to achieve some sort of false “feel good” unity, when there really are fundamental differences. Unfortunately, many of the mainlines have taken the view that we should unify first, and ask questions later, which is really not an honest and open form of communication, if you ask me. The latter is a doctrinal position really though it pretends not to be (‘there are no absolutes’, he said absolutely).
  • Marco Vervoorst: The Catholic Church is bigger than any one experience of her.
