The Pope With An Edge

Was just watching the Pope's "ecumenical meeting" at St. Joseph's. It was a very pointed talk. Fr. Neuhaus says he's certain it engendered a great deal of "salutary squirming."
Too often those who are not Christians, as they observe the splintering of Christian communities, are understandably confused about the Gospel message itself. Fundamental Christian beliefs and practices are sometimes changed within communities by so-called "prophetic actions" that are based on a hermeneutic not always consonant with the datum of Scripture and Tradition. Communities consequently give up the attempt to act as a unified body, choosing instead to function according to the idea of "local options". Somewhere in this process the need for diachronic koinonia - communion with the Church in every age - is lost, just at the time when the world is losing its bearings and needs a persuasive common witness to the saving power of the Gospel (cf. Rom 1:18-23).
Awesome! The point being, as he concluded, to strive to achieve with God's help that:
"oneness of hope, oneness of faith, and oneness of love" that alone will convince the world that Jesus Christ is the one sent by the Father for the salvation of all.
Otherwise, why bother?
You know what? I am really looking forward to the so-called social encyclical rumored to be entitled Charity in Truth. I've a feeling the address to educators the other night and this talk just now were previews.
