Pope takes Chris­tian unity bid to Protes­tant heart­land

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Pope Fran­cis flew to Swe­den yes­ter­day on the lat­est leg of his mis­sion to pro­mote rec­on­cil­i­a­tion and unity within the wider Chris­tian fam­ily. The Ar­gen­tine pon­tiff ar­rived in the south­ern city of Lund for an ec­u­meni­cal ser­vice mark­ing the start of a year of cel­e­bra­tions for the 500th an­niver­sary of the Re­for­ma­tion. The event will also mark 50 years of rec­on­cil­ia­tory di­a­logue be­tween the Catholic Church and Lutheranism, a tra­di­tion that was once fer­vently hos­tile to the au­thor­ity and teach­ings of the Vat­i­can.
