EWTN says that a group Catholics and Anglicans will be coming up with a joint statement on our Blessed Mother. This really mainly makes me wonder -- did we do joint statents with the gnostics, arians, and other heretics of the 1st thousand years? Should we be doing these sorts of statements?

it's more a matter of protestants starting to see Mary as someone special

I feel it is a good thing

Quote:
Bishop Brian Farrell, secretary of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity said of the document: "We have much hope, as it allows us to discover all the things we have in common on Mary, including with the Anglican reformers of the 16th and 17th centuries, who were regarded as 'anti-Marian,' but in fact, were not."

"Moreover, the document addresses the problems of Catholic dogma," he told ZENIT. "We believe the document will be interesting not only for the
Catholic-Anglican dialogue but also for dialogue with all the communities
that arose from the Reformation."


i'm not sure , but i'm having a little problem with the terminology "problems of Catholic dogma"... maybe it pertains to the anglican's problems with Marian dogma...will have to wait and see
