Foreword by His Eminence Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor This essential reference catalogues the biographical history and significant events of all Roman Catholic diocesan bishops who have been in office since the Restoration of the Catholic Hierarchy in England and Wales in 1850, and in Scotland since the Restoration in 1878. The work has developed over a number of years into a comprehensive reference guide to over 300 men, ordained in the episcopal order, who have given their life in service to the Church.
Vatican II opened the doors of the Roman Catholic Church for official theological dialogue with separated brethren. The rise of the neo-Pentecostal movement and charismatic renewal caused the doors of the historical Pentecostals to open toward Christians in the mainline churches. This book discusses the historical precedents of the Vatican/Pentecostal Dialogue and reviews the ten-years Dialogue (1972-1982), with special attention given to the second five years. The implications of this Dialogue for ecumenism is also discussed. Volume Two contains all the documents from the second quinquennium, including the 16 theological papers and final report.
Provides opportunities for guided reflection, sharing and prayer that reinforce many of Pastor Rick Warren's points with additional commentary on areas where Catholic teaching varies. Using this companion guide, which follows Warren's 40-day process, either individually or in a group, will assist Roman Catholics in transforming their lives and appreciating the richness and beauty of their Faith tradition.
