Pope Benedict “wants to heal East and West” and reconcile with the Eastern Orthodox Church. Dialogue is ongoing with Lutherans, Pentecostals and Mennonites.
As for the pope’s view of Jesuits…the Society of Jesus is called to continue to work “at the frontiers” and yet continue to work in education…Pope Benedict may appreciate the ability of a “loyal opposition” to strengthen the church and “push the envelope.”

Might this explain the exponential explosion of the teachings of Roman Catholic and Jesuit spirituality within the Western church denominations including the Mennonites?
