On the eve of Pope Francis’s apostolic journey to Sweden for the Lutheran-Catholic common commemoration of the Reformation, the general-secretary of the World Council of Churches reflected on the Reformation’s legacy.
Olav Fykse Tveit, who has led the ecumenical body since 2009, spoke
at the Peterskirche, the University Church of Heidelberg, on six themes:
mutual accountability, the need for accountability and reformation, the
relevance of Luther’s 95 theses, migration, Israel and Palestine, and
“the pilgrimage of justice and peace.”
