Implicarea Patriarhului Iustin Moisescu în Dialogul Ecumenic. O istorie dezvoltată pe fondul implicării directe a mai marilor Bisericii
“Eternity was born in the village” is a reality which is confirmed even by the Church’s evolution. Specifically, even on the dialogue side, the Church has evolved throughout time, building and rebuilding destroyed relations in ancient times. Considering the homage year assigned to the village’s life and the outstanding figures from the top of our Church, I chose to evoke real historical approaches made to reach warmer relations captured in our days. The patriarch Iustin Moisescu is one of the promoters for the relationship between the Orthodox Church and Roman Catholic Church, as well as between the rest of the Church’s. The dialogue part wasn’t foreign for the first half of the past century, the patriarch Iustin being also involved in the discussions of the Church’s Ecumenical Council, considered by most as a reference of ecumenical closeness. Taken as a reference, we can notice that based on this ecumenical activity there was elevated a continuous dialogue shown differently, throughout relational organisms like: The World Council of Churches, Mixt Committees of dialogue, various ecumenical Meetings, etc. This memo is seeking to notice the evolution of the ecumenical relationships between the Orthodox Church and the Roman Catholic one, starting from the classic Romanian orthodox values. Regarding the course of the memo, starting from the ecumenical principles existent in the 19th century, throughout terminological remarks and descriptions regarding the relational authorities, we will observe the current state and the fruitful work of the Romanian orthodox promoters.
