The Shared Heritage of All Christians (Protestant, Catholic, Orthodox and Others) – Ecumenism Series – CHS 82

In the Second Vatican Council’s Unitatis Redintegratio (Restoration of Unity – The Decree on Ecumenism 21 Nov 1964), the Council fathers spoke of the shared heritage among all Christians. The Council fathers wrote as follows: “On the other hand, Catholics must gladly acknowledge and esteem the truly Christian endowments from our common heritage which are to be found among our separated brethren.” In passing, the Council introduced this very rich term “common heritage” (commune patrimonium) to describe the common ground shared by Catholic and Protestant Christians. The Second Vatican Council fathers encouraged Catholics to recognize the riches of Christ’s work in the lives of their separated brethren stating “It is right and salutary to recognize the riches of Christ and virtuous works in the lives of others who are bearing witness to Christ, sometimes even to the shedding of their blood. For God is always wonderful in His works and worthy of all praise.” Join us this week as we briefly cover various aspects of the heritage shared by all Christians.
