In this course, Andrew Petiprin takes you inside several important texts that express how the Church thinks about Protestants and explain how they belong with us in the Catholic church. You’ll look at the life and work of St. John Henry Newman, particularly his Apologia Pro Vita Sua. The other key works include Pastor Aeternus by Pope Pius IX; Unitatis Redintegratio, the Second Vatican Council’s document on ecumenism; Pope St. John Paul II’s landmark ecumenical document, Ut Unum Sint; and to conclude, Pope Benedict XVI’s apostolic constitution of 2009, Anglicanorum Coetibus.
Join Andrew, formerly a Protestant minister in the Episcopal church himself, as he offers a courageous way forward. Let us all pray that we may be fully equipped by Holy Spirit to welcome our Protestant brothers and sisters back to the Church.
