Description: Ukraine's opposition leaders signed an EU-mediated peace pact with President Viktor Yanukovich today, winning a raft of concessions in a delicate deal to end violence that killed at least 77 people and turned the capital into a battle zone. By nightfall, opposition leaders who signed the deal were addressing peaceful crowds from a stage in Independence Square, which for the past 48 hours had become an inferno of blazing barricades, where protesters were shot dead by police snipers. But the crowd was still defiant, holding aloft open coffins of slain demonstrators and making speeches denouncing the opposition leaders for shaking hands with Yanukovich. Yanukovich agreed to create a national unity government, change the constitution to reduce his powers and leave office early for new elections. We talk to George Weigel about the deal.

Description: Next week Sacred Heart Major Seminary is sponsoring a symposium bringing together Catholics, Evangelicals and Reformed Protestants to ask whether the “adventure if ecumenicity” advances Christian unity or confuses the real differences among the confessional traditions.
