And I fear that this Pope is going to insist on the maintaining of this heretical theology, and progress in the oecumenical dialogue will stop.
Actually, this was a fear I had as well. However, I note a few things important about Pope B XVI. He will not liberalize the faith- meaning no gay marriages, female clergy, etc. and this I think is good, given the current climate where some people are eager to 'let hell break loose', to legitimize their current life choices... I read that he was in fact the one who wrote the apology to the Jews for the Pope JPII. He must have been involved in the dialogue with the EO as well, given his position. So I am hopeful that he will continue the dialogue.
As to your other points, I respect him as a deeply spritual Christian and despite the points of difference that result from his being RC, I believe God shows mercy for all of our inadequacies that come from our humanness.. ,especially those that are the result of a long and turbulent history. I think these words of Vassula Ryden sum it up.
"God’s Calling to a deep metanoia, fruit of humility that leads us to reconciliation and unity
We, the people of the churches, must realize that we are living in a constant sin, the sin of our division. "Every kingdom divided against itself is laid waste, and no city or house divided against itself will stand." (Mt.12, 25). Even if this division did not come directly from us but from our forefathers, still, we are keeping it alive so long as we remain divided. We cannot say that God is pleased when the shepherds are still separated. We cannot deign to talk about unity without going through a metanoia and put into practice the two greatest commandments of God. It will be as though we want to construct a house without laying down first its foundations. The foundations of unity should be humility and divine love and the conversion of our hearts. For how could we believe that we could reach unity if we do not repent and live fully the two greatest commandments that are based on the law of love? "
"My earnest wish is that the West and the East meet. I need those two pillars of My Church to come together and consolidate My Church."
(Jesus to Vassula, October 5, 1994)
For those interested in prophecy.. The words of Jesus penned through Vassula Ryden may be of interest.http://www.tlig.org/
Vassula was invited to Romania by both the Pope JPII and Patriarch of Romania Teostist , where she delivered to them a dossier with the messages from God which she has received, and the core is a message of unity...She is GO and has preached all over the world with a core message to rebuild God's house into one...
