Ethiopian Patriarch Calls for Renewal Posted: Jan 1 1995 12:00AM
At a September ecumenical gathering in Assisi, Italy, Abuna Paulos, the Patriarch of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, called for a coordinated and vigorous effort to resolve those problems dividing the Church of Christ.
accelerate the quest for unity between the churches and also enable us to develop the theology of re-awakening, he declared. This will be a theology of bringing the divine truth of the Lord in tune with the needs and necessities of the 20th century and beyond.
The Patriarch reiterated these themes when he received those CNEWA representatives responsible for programs in Ethiopia Brother Donald Mansir. F.S.C., and Brother Vincent Pelletier, F.S.C. at an October meeting in Addis Ababa.
Abuna Paulos conveyed his appreciation for our work with the Ethiopian people and our respect for the Ethiopian Orthodox Church.
