Vatican Synod to Examine When Divided Christians Can Preach Together

The potential power, but also the limits, of an ecumenical proclamation of the Gospel and defense of Gospel values is likely to be a key topic during October’s world Synod of Bishops on the new evangelization.


I am in favor of joint cooperation between denominations in spreading the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. There must be some standard of mutual agreement, and the Apostle’s Creed would seem to be a reasonable standard.

As far as the cooperation of Jews and Muslims, we could not expect these monotheistic faiths to share in the spreading of the gospel of Jesus Christ. However, we could mutually share our declaration and adherance to the morality and ethics of theTen Commandments, and to the worship of our Creator.

God’s will be done
