Holy Church or Holy Writ? (2)

Today we all know of this common destiny that binds us together. Even the great theological issues are everywhere the same. To many it was a great surprise that the Second Vatican Council had to deal with exactly the same problems, ecclesiastical and theological, that are on the agendas of our synods and conferences. This is no surprise to the church historian. For he knows that this has always been so. What is new is that the churches have begun to draw their conclusions from these facts; unfortunately, as the sad history of the Ecumenical Movement shows, often wrong conclusions.
