The World Needed This

Corriere Della Sera:
Pope Denies Protestants Are Church
Full identity in Christ only in Catholicism. Storm over document approved by Benedict XVI

VATICAN CITY – Christ “established here on earth” only one Church that has its full identity only in the Catholic Church, since every other Church or ecclesiastical community lacks something with respect to that identity. This is the import of a document released yesterday by the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, provoking alarm and protests from Orthodox and Protestant Christians.
The document itself, signed by the prefect of the Congregation, Cardinal William Levada, and approved by Benedict XVI, comprises only six pages and is entitled Responses to some questions regarding certain aspects of the doctrine on the Church.
