L’œcuménisme local : catholiques et protestants en France : 1976-1986 et 2002-2012

Abstract : A comparative study across parishes (basic levels of ecclesial life, chosen for their multitudinist character) conducted over two periods in the same places to measure the progress of ecumenical practices and the concept of unity being developed. Its three parts discuss : (1) results by city ; (2) the progression of ecumenism by theme, i.e., common prayer, encounter groups, mixed-faith marriages, and the more recent Alpha Courses ; and (3) related complexcity issues : the form of unity being sought, and the implications on sacraments. Ecumenism continues to expend at local levels. It is marked by the strong emphasis placed on the brotherhood of Christians of all churches, whose ultimate realization is sought through reciprocal Eucharistic hospitality. This ecumenism also manifests the need to preserve faith identity, a concern that is interpreted as not separating, yet leads to mistrust any proposal of institutional unity.
