Hot off the press! We have a new weblog to announce. Starting immediately, a new blog entitled “Reconciliation & unity” will be available on the Ecumenism in Canada site. Written by Fr. Bernard de Margerie, the blog is intended as a place to share ideas and inspiration about the ecumenical mission of the church. Bernard was the founding director of the Prairie Centre for Ecumenism in 1984, and has been actively engaged in local ecumenism in Canada since the call of the Second Vatican Council in 1959. In recent years, Bernard has been working on the development of resources for ecumenical prayer.

Bernard explains that the title of the blog — Reconciliation & unity — “evokes the journey Christian churches are called to undertake, or persevere on, toward full unity or communion (koinonia). Still estranged from each other, churches are called to gospel conversion: to turn around toward each other, humbly recognizing how deeply they belong to each other and together in their rich diversities, as the one and only Body of Christ. To ‘reconcile’ or ‘be reconciled’ means to ‘make up’ and come together to live a common life of faith, worship and mission in and for God’s world. To pray, grow in understanding and work for the reconciliation of Christians is an act of faithfulness to the people of God, the Body of Christ, the temple of the Holy Spirit. This web page and blog intends to express and serve such an act of faithfulness.”

The blog can be found at It will also be accessible by email notifications and by RSS feed.
