Love and Life in the Divine Plan: The Catholic Bishops'ecumenical document
Posted on Monday, December 07, 2009
is the name of the Catholic Bishops' Pastoral Letter on Marriage. I will be writing about this in upcoming days. This document is really great and is not getting the attention it deserves. It is being upstage by the Manhattan Declaration, which is also good and worthwhile. Oddly enough, the Pastoral letter of the Catholic Bishops is actually more ecumenical than the Manhattan Declaration because the Declaration is specifically and emphatically Christian. Now, of course, the Bishops' letter is too, not only Christian, but Catholic Christian. But I think that a Jewish person would have an easier time embracing the Bishops' letter than the Manhattan Declaration. Maybe not. Jewish readers, what say you?
