Fast Approaching

Next week in Lund, Sweden, Pope Francis will be present at a “joint Catholic-Lutheran commemoration of the five-hundredth anniversary of the Reformation.” The occasion is the opportunity for which both churches have longed. English bishop William Kenney summarized it: “the Reformation was a great misunderstanding, we all got it wrong, on both sides, and we’ve lifted excommunications and condemnations and apologized.” The event will help more Catholics and Lutherans know it.
