An Ecumenical Calendar

10. Referring to the serious problem of the divisions among Christians, the Holy Father wrote in Tertio Millennio Adveniente: "From an ecumenical point of view, this will certainly be a very important year for Christians to look together to Christ the one Lord, deepening our commitment to become one in him, in accordance with his prayer to the Father. This emphasis on the centrality of Christ, of the word of God and of faith ought to inspire interest among Christians of other denominations" (n. 41).

The "Calendar of the Holy Year of 2000" has heard this desire of the Holy Father and of the whole Church. Some important ecumenical meetings have already been organized. Others, such as the hoped for Pan-Christian meeting, can be added later. (Contacts have also been made to an inter-religious meeting. From 24-28 October 1999 is forseen the Inter-Religious Assembly with the theme "At the threshold of the III Millennium: the collaboration between different religions", organized by the Pontifical Council for Inter-Religious Dialogue.) There have been contacts with other Churches and ecclesial communities. Local Churches, and our Christian brothers, are also encouraged to seek out possible ways of providing for some forms of celebrations in common during the Holy Year, which could become an occasion of fellowship, of prayer and of dialogue between all Christians.
