Pope Benedict addresses German Lutherans

As the Society of the Holy Trinity meets in General Retreat to consider the teaching office and Pope John Paul’s encylical on church unity, “Ut Unum Sint“, Pope Benedict has just finished his visit to Germany, at which he addressed leaders of the German Evangelical Church in the Augustinian monastery at Erfurt, where Luther was a monk.

“Naturally faith today has to be thought out afresh, and above all lived afresh, so that it is suited to the present day. Yet it is not by watering the faith down, but by living it today in its fullness that we achieve this. This is a key ecumenical task in which we have to help one another: developing a deeper and livelier faith. It is not strategy that saves us and saves Christianity, but faith – thought out and lived afresh; through such faith, Christ enters this world of ours, and with him, the living God.”
