Evangelization Requires Freedom and Truth

This morning in the Holy See Press Office, the presentation took place of a “Doctrinal Note on some aspects of evangelization” prepared by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.

Cardinal Levada explained that the document is intended to respond “to a certain confusion about whether Catholics should give testimony about their faith in Christ. The congregation,” he said, “decided to address some specific points which seem to undermine the fulfillment of Christ’s missionary mandate. It does so under three general headings:” the anthropological, ecclesiological and ecumenical implications of evangelization.

UN approves a moratorium on the death penalty

The United Nations General Assembly has approved a resolution calling for a moratorium on the use of the death penalty in all member states.

Previous attempts in 1994 and 1999 failed. The current resolution called on member states to “progressively restrict the use of the death penalty and reduce the number of offences for which it may be imposed.”

No common language yet

A hundred years on from the establishing of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, how much further forward are we? And what exactly are we praying for during this week of prayer? On the whole, it’s become a fixture for most “mainstream” denominations, a few days when the more enthusiastic or more biddable members of the congregation turn up to someone else’s church for a well-mannered but often rather lukewarm joint service or two, or perhaps for a talk by a prominent local leader.

The aspiration that we end up relating better with each other, or even that we end up more willing to engage in witness and work together is entirely worthy, and is probably widely fulfilled. But are we praying for anything more than this?

For some people, the answer is clearly “no”. To look beyond this fostering of local goodwill, they would say, is always in danger of slipping towards the yearning for some universal institution with clear central control – at worst, a Pullmanesque Magisterium, some people’s nightmare of Roman Catholicism.
