Q. 1. How does the Catholic Church define Ecumenical dialog?
A. 1. In a few words, "Ecumenical dialog" consist of theological talks and discussions in search for unity among Christians. The dialogue between two or more churches is aimed at overcoming the inherited divergences/differences, often doctrinal and church order and principles that separate them.
It appears that the dialogue between Catholics and many mainline Protestant denominations has been getting farther and farther apart instead of bringing unity. There is great disagreement on moral issues like abortion, the definition of marriage, and the ordination of active homosexual clergy. If the Catholic Church changed its views on these matters, it would no longer be the Catholic Church.
