The Return of Christian Unity in the Twin Cities
By: David J. Snyder, writer

The Church is made up of many different traditions, denominations and creeds, all of which are represented by the hundreds of churches that pepper the cultural landscape throughout the Minneapolis, St. Paul area.   [The Church clearly doesn't teach this but it's understandable with men like Fr Cantalamessa around how someone could be more than confused about this] Thousands of Christian believers call upon the name of the Lord each and everyday in this region, but with so many different focuses, missions and callings spreading throughout the Body of Christ, it is difficult sometimes to unite together and remember that we are all heading towards the same goal: to have the Twin Cities totally and irreparably shown the Love of Christ!

In the Book of Acts, and indeed throughout the rest of the New Testament, we witness a Church that considered themselves, though separated by geographic location and ethnic background, as one and chose to live their lives in one accord. In Acts 2:44, Luke detailed how believers “had all things in common” and, in Acts 2:46, shared “one mind” while in the temple worshiping our Father. It was this spirit of Christian unity that gave credence to Christ’s most holy prayer in John 17:11, asking the Father that they “may be one” as Christ and the Father are one. This same spirit of unity exists within the Church of the Twin Cities!*

Father Raniero Cantalamessa, a Franciscan priest and preacher to the Papacy in the Vatican, has been preaching, sharing and advocating for Christian unity throughout the Global Body of Christ for the past ten years. His belief that we, believers in Christ Jesus, can be unified regardless of our doctrinal differences has infected hundreds of thousands of Christians with the hope that the gap between Catholics and Protestants, though unique in our forms of worship, can be bridged by a mutual love, honor and respect that Christ declared would be the very symbol that would brand us His Disciples to the world (John 13:35).

Along with local Christian leaders throughout the Twin Cities, Father Raniero Cantalamessa will be coming to the Minneapolis / St. Paul area in order to share this glorious vision of a unified Body of Christ at the upcoming In One Accord gathering! Leaders, believers and members of congregations from every denominational and nondenominational backgrounds are invited to the In One Accord gathering that is being held on November 2nd & 3rd, called by local Church leaders sharing in the same vision for Christian unity as Father Raniero Cantalamessa.

The first day of In One Accord will be held at All Saints Catholic Church of Lakeville, MN on Tuesday, November 2nd, starting at 7pm. The second day of the In One Accord gathering will be held at North Heights Lutheran Church of Arden Hills, MN on November 3rd with meetings starting at 10am, 5pm and 7pm throughout the day. For more information regarding the In One Accord gathering, as well as how to access this gathering’s free webcast (if the gathering’s schedule proves inconvenient), feel free to visit www.praytwincities.com.

This gathering is free and open to everyone who desires to participate in this pivotal movement to bring back the very spirit of unity and the spirit of peace to the Church within the Twin Cities (Col. 3:14, Eph. 4:3)!

This is nothing more than the heresy of universalism, that all religions lead to salvation.  This gives meaning to the heretical teaching of the "subsistit in" rhetoric, and the "One Accord" gathering should be resisted in every form and this priest exposed as an enemy of Christ.  What would happen, as has already been happening, the holy Roman, Apostolic, Catholic Church will be reduced to just one of the 20,000 + denominational faith communities ("churches").

Further, it gives FALSE hopes to these other religions that they too are salvific and will not seek to find the Truth becasue they also possess the truth.

One thing though, considering how Protestants look down on the Catholic Church, perhaps this will dissuade them not to atttend this gathering.

This gathering is nothing more than a diabolical disorientation -- what a HOOT!

You know, his Liturgy will probably be freaky like that.  We'll just have to see.
Another public heretic "in communion" with Rome.

What a joke.
Hopefully B16 will replace him after this.  Maybe with, I dunno, +W!
This is indeed pretty disturbing.  It's difficult to see how his statements could be reconciled with even liberal interpretations of Church teaching. 

(One glaring warning sign of a confused Catholic is one who refers to the true Church as a "denomination".)

It would be heartening indeed to see this man replaced or even censured by the supreme pontiff.  It is a fact he does not share these views.
Wait I thought that this was a statement by Cantalamessa at first then I read further and the article is written by a David J. Snyder.so this is rather the account of a third party which may or may not be accurate.

I think that once again people read way too much in to things like this.

Or the "Catholic-Christian tradition". They used that a lot in high school, I hated it.
Probably the only time I squirm when I hear the words "catholic" and "tradition" in the same sentence.
