Unity of Faith in a Diversity of Expression: The Work of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith

It is indeed a great pleasure to address the students and professors of the Institut für Historische Theologie, Liturgiewissenschaft und Sakramenten theologie here at the University of Vienna. I am grateful to Professor Hans – Jürgen Feulner for the invitation to give a lecture on the work of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith at the Vatican, with a particular eye towards the Congregation’s work in establishing structures for groups of former Anglicans and other Protestants who desire full, visible communion with the Catholic Church. Those structures, if they
are to be authentically Catholic, must include provision for the full range of liturgical, sacramental, and pastoral life which I imagine is a matter of particular interest to students at this faculty.
