Pope Goes to Switzerland to Celebrate World Council of Churches 70th Anniversary

Edit: do nothing waste of time albatrosses like World Council of Churches are only capable of ushering in the anti-Christ.

By Philippa Hitchen
Pope Francis will travel to Geneva on June 21st to mark the 70th anniversary of the World Council of Churches. The announcement was made on Friday at a press conference in the Vatican by the WCC General Secretary, Rev. Olav Fykse Tveit and by Cardinal Kurt Koch, head of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity.
The WCC was founded in 1948 with a membership of 147 Christian Churches, largely in Europe and North America. Today it brings together 348 members in countries across the globe, including most of the world's Orthodox, Anglican, Baptist, Lutheran, Methodist and Reformed churches, as well as many United and Independent churches.
Since 1965 the Catholic Church has worked closely together with the WCC through a Joint Working Group, as well as through participation in specific commissions or practical initiatives.

Fulton J. Sheen in his writings and preachings pretty much warned against the World Council of Churches.

They would approve of the Letter Placiut Deo

Cardinal Luiz Ladaria chose to interpret Vatican Council II with the for and against EENS method instead of the for and neutral to EENS method : journalists and conservatives unaware

Rockefeller set up the WCC as part of the larger project of internationalism and world government.

Poor Francis. He's going to be one very tired pontiff by the end of this historic and ecumenically inspiring visit. Unlike his previous and even more pastorally significant jaunt in Lund, there's going to be literally dozens of female 'bishops' to hug this time around.

Do I sense sarcasm? You betcha.

@JBQ - I just can't help myself. A perfect storm of the present pope, the World Council of Churches and mention of a 'Joint Working Group' brings out the worst in me. Imagine eavesdropping a session of that Joint Working Group - makes walking barefoot over Lego's seem attractive.
