Benedict: Take Joy in the Good of our Separated Brethren
Quote: On 2, ecumenism has changed because the Church has loosened conditions to foster more openness.
Compare to what the Church teaches:

Pope Leo XIII Wrote:“The underlying principle of these new opinions is that, in order to more easily attract those who differfrom her, the Church should shape her teachings more in accord with the spirit of the age and relax some of her ancient severity and make some concessions to new opinions. Many think that these concessions should be made not only in regard to ways of living, but even in regard to doctrines which belong to the deposit of the faith. They contend that it would be opportune, in order to gain those who differ from us, to omit certain points of her teaching which are of lesser importance, and to tone down the meaning which the Church has always attached to them. It does not need many words, beloved son, to prove the falsity of these ideas if the nature and origin of the doctrine which the Church proposes are recalled to mind.”
