Thanks for the lengthy messages, but you never seemed to answer my question: Dr. Drummey, whose book I possess (Catholic Replies) quotes the offical letter from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith regarding Fr. Feeney.
They are allowed to hold to s strict interpetation but also that a liberal one can be held too!
Which is it?
Also, Protestants were created too! Are they not saved?
The Vatican is very strange these days. With praying with all religions and all. Protestants don’t do that!
Is it ok to pray with other religions?
Well, I’ve never seen that letter. Really, if you want an authoritive answer to a Catholic position you go to the Catechism
III. THE AIM AND INTENDED READERSHIP OF THE CATECHISM
11 This catechism aims at presenting an organic synthesis of the essential and fundamental contents of Catholic doctrine, as regards both faith and morals, in the light of the Second Vatican Council and the whole of the Church’s Tradition. Its principal sources are the Sacred Scriptures, the Fathers of the Church, the liturgy, and the Church’s Magisterium. It is intended to serve “as a point of reference for the catechisms or compendia that are composed in the various countries”.15
ON THE PUBLICATION OF THE
CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH
PREPARED FOLLOWING THE SECOND VATICAN ECUMENICAL COUNCIL
JOHN PAUL, BISHOP
SERVANT OF THE SERVANTS OF GOD
FOR EVERLASTING MEMORY
The Catechism of the Catholic Church, lastly, is offered to every individual who asks us to give an account of the hope that is in us (cf. 1 Pt 3:15) and who wants to know what the Catholic Church believes.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church, which I approved 25 June last and the publication of which I today order by virtue of my Apostolic Authority, is a statement of the Church’s faith and of catholic doctrine, attested to or illumined by Sacred Scripture, the Apostolic Tradition and the Church’s Magisterium. I declare it to be a sure norm for teaching the faith and thus a valid and legitimate instrument for ecclesial communion.
Hence all my CCC quotes.
With respect to praying with other religions some protestants do. Anglican’s probably most notably.
Prayer with other religions will have to wait. Have to sleep! Others might jump in here?
