Fr. Jim Gardner, SA and his presence at an ecumenical prayer service for the intention of Christian unity were recently covered in an article on Crux. In it, he gives several thoughts and teachings on the cause for Christian unity, and the history of Interdenominational relations is addressed as well.
“Gardiner gave a quick overview of the many church documents on ecumenism and interfaith relations, including the Second Vatican Council’s Decree on Ecumenism (“Unitatis Redintegratio”), which said that ecumenism should be everyone’s concern and that genuine ecumenism involves a continual personal and institutional renewal.”

Please, pray for Jason and his family’s salvation. Jason doesn’t believe God exists nor that belief in Jesus is needed. Furthermore, pray for Jason to find contentment and love in Jesus. Also, pray for me to follow God’s direction. Thank you!
It seems silly to me that the Roman Catholic Church doesn’t have at least a way for us to sign up to work and pray with other Christians, and worship together. I don’t think that we have to agree on everything in order to love one another and be one. God does not command us to agree, but to love Him and one another. I even think there is a way that we can worship together in a Church without anybody having to give anything up: Roman Catholics, like myself, can receive the Eucharist and others can do what they do; but do it together at the same time and place. What would be wrong with that? If that was offered in my local Church, i would run to Church! And doing charity work and praying together as Christians, that’s a no brainer. That God included us (as later believers) in John 17, the least we can do is to have more visible signs of this unity. What we have in common as Christians has got to be greater than our differences because what we have in common is Jesus. Let each one of us stay focused on Jesus. We all belong to Him.
