Vatican II and Christian Unity

This past year, the Church remembered 50 years of thought and worship since Vatican II.  As Catherine E. Gifford points out in this interview, the Second Vatican Council not only made significant changes within, but also in relation to other Christian Churches.

While there is certainly much work to be done, the Council acknowledged significant gifts Catholics share with other churches such as:  confession of faith in Christ and in a Trinitarian God, common Scriptures, the patrimony of the witness of the early church, sacramental celebrations, witness and service of the Gospel in the world.
