Essclessia Dei, a commission to bring unity to the church, was resurrected today and refashioned with a mission to help reunite groups outside the church with the fullness of faith. In a document, "Ecclesiae Unitatem," the Holy Father restructured the commission, which was formed in 1988 for those communities and persons who, coming from groups separated from mother church. "The Holy Father desired to demonstrate particular and paternal solicitude toward the Society of St. Pius X in order to overcome the difficulties that still remain to achieving full communion with the Church,” explained Cardinal Levada. This movement was ‘muto propio,’ of his own initiative, and reveals the Pontiff’s desire bring everyone to Christ. Hopefully this will help groups find a good path back to Rome.
I am an energetic wife and mother of two, who loves the Catholic faith. Currently working as a High School Youth Minister gives me an amazing opportunity to brush up on my faith everyday. I wrote the "Faculty In Focus" column, and various articles for the "Ave Maria Angelus" from May 2006-June 2007. I have been published in "One Voice." In 2006 I received a B.A. in Theology from Ave Maria University.
