Must have more ecumenism!

Katholische Kirche: „Wir sind Kirche“ fordert mehr Ökumene - Vermischtes - FOCUS Online - Nachrichten

The "popular" (Cathcon- my ironic quotation marks) church movement "We Are Church" has criticized prior to the Pope's visit to Germany the "lack of readiness of the Catholic Church for ecumenism." They also take a position on the growing criticism that the cost of the Pope's visit are too high.

Ahead of the visit to Germany by Pope Benedict XVI on 22 to 25 September popular church movement "We Are Church" has criticised the "lack of readiness of the Catholic Church for ecumenism." "If the Pope's visit promotes dialogue within our church and there is progress in ecumenism with the Protestant church, then it is money well spent," said spokesman Christian Weisner to the "Rhein-Zeitung" (Friday edition). He has taken this position to the growing criticism that the costs for the visit of 25 to 30 million euros were too high. Yet his expectations are limited, Weisner said. "I hope that from the ecumenical meeting in Erfurt, which according to the programme only 35 minutes are provided, something can be really got moving." The question is whether this visit will only be a sermon trip, or also one which provides for listening to eachother.
