Ecumenism: The Quest for True Christian Unity (full hour)
Description: St John Paul II wrote an encyclical called Ut Unum Sint, or - That They May Be One. Its focus was Christian reunion - he knew division in the body of Christ was an impediment to the expression of the Gospel. Dr Mary Healy joins us to talk about what ecumenism looks like today for Catholics and other Christians.
