The Finnish Lutherans have been in Rome again on their annual pilgrimage to the Holy See (a significant idea in itself!). In his speech to the visitors, the Holy Father said:
You mentioned in your address the Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification, now ten years old, which is a concrete sign of the brotherhood rediscovered between Lutherans and Catholics. In this context, I am pleased to note the recent work of the Nordic Lutheran-Catholic dialogue in Finland and Sweden on questions deriving from the Joint Declaration. It is greatly to be hoped that the text resulting from the dialogue will contribute positively to the path which leads to the restoration of our lost unity.
Does anyone know anything about this? I think he is referring to their current round of discussions “Justification in the Life of the Church”, mentioned in this 2004 report from the PCPCU, but I can’t find anything more about it on the net. Sounds interesting.
