On October 31—Reformation Day—a major ecumenical event will take place at the cathedral in Lund, Sweden. It’s a liturgy based on the important 2013 statement of the Lutheran-Catholic Dialogue, From Conflict to Communion, which opens the jubilee year of the Reformation. The liturgy itself, called Common Prayer, was designed to reflect the insights of From Conflict to Communion: expressing the gospel-affirming ways that both Lutherans and Catholics can remember the Reformation. That means lamenting what went wrong and was unworthy of the Christian faith, and rejoicing in what went right and gave glory to God. Pope Francis himself will participate!
