ACO: Signing of Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification

Dear Cardinal Cassidy and Dr Noko,

The signing of the Joint Declaration on the Doctrine Of Justification between the Lutheran World Federation and the Roman Catholic Church is an event which encourages Christians of all traditions and is a cause of rejoicing for all who pray and work for the unity of Christ’s Church.

History in our own time: The Joint Declaration on Justification

“How are we saved?” This was the central question of the Protestant Reformation.
