“Participating in common prayer to mark the start of Francis’s papacy highlights the ecumenical dimension of our shared spiritual life, the heart of what we share as Christians.”
The general secretary of the World Council of Churches (WCC) Rev. Dr Olav Fykse Tveit attended the mass in which Pope Francis, the new pontiff of the Roman Catholic Church, was installed on 19 March at the Vatican in Rome.
Tveit joined prominent religious and political leaders from around the world at the mass in St Peter’s Square, marking the official start of Francis’s papacy.
Ecumenical leaders present at the installation included Bartholomew I, the first Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople to attend a papal installation since the schism of 1054.
Tveit attended the event in order to give a “significant expression of the WCC’s collaboration with the Roman Catholic Church, as well as our mutual commitment to church unity and the ecumenical movement.”
“In close collaboration with Pope Francis, we look forward to building on this positive relationship with the Catholic Church that has been nurtured so carefully in the past,” stated Tveit in his letter to the new pope on 13 March.
Tveit assured Pope Francis of his prayers. “Participating in common prayer to mark the start of Francis’s papacy highlights the ecumenical dimension of our shared spiritual life, the heart of what we share as Christians.”
“Let us use this opportunity to pray for and with Pope Francis to reconfirm that we need one another, to address the challenges of the world in our time,” said Tveit.

Church reformer Martin Luther called the Pope for an antichrist.
I guess He would have used the same name for men like Olav Fykse Tveit. Despite being a Lutheran theologian, claiming to stand on the lesson of the Reformation.
To “share the spiritual life” with Roman Catholics, is to approve of their blasphemy and sin against the Holy Spirit.
On News That Matters, there is more than 50 articles about the Popes approval of worship of bones, corpses and skulls. You can read these files, pressing this link.
The name written on her forehead was a mystery: babylon the great the mother of prostitutes and of the abominations of the earth.
The book of Revelation exposes the whore of Babylon. She claims to know “god”, but she is the mother of all harlots.
What we are seeing in our days, is that the harlots are returning home to their mother. All kinds of apostate protestant Churches, are returning home to their mother in Rome.
True Messianic Baptist Churches, can simply not “return home”. Because they never came out of Rome, but has its roots back in the Apostolic age. They have never bowed before the Papacy, and they never will.
In their millions, they chose to die like martyrs, refusing to bow before the Papacy and his “mother of God”.
Repent or perish.
