Religious complacency


The present stage of the ecumenical way is not one with which the churches can rest content. There is a real danger that they will regard fraternal relationships and cooperation as sufficient or the continued existence of differences as intractable. Such a conclusion would tempt them to be satisfied with a consolidation of the achievements of past decades rather than to renew their commitment for the common journey. The ecumenical movement would then cease to be a movement of renewal leading toward the goal of unity embracing faith and order, worship and sacraments, mission and service.
