Congratulations to Fr. Columba Stewart, OSB who was nominated by Cardinal Walter Kasper to become the newest member of the International Joint Commission for Theological Dialogue between the Catholic Church and the Oriental Orthodox Churches. I was honored to come to know Fr. Stewart during my time studying at St. John's University (2006 - 07). For me, this news means I'll have another opportunity to be visited by a friend in Rome over dinner. But more importantly, for the Church, this news promises that the work of fulfilling Christ's desire that "they may all be one" will be done by Christians of deep sincerity and high intellect.
