[Anglican Communion News Service] Pope Francis and Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby have said that they are “undeterred” by the “serious obstacles” to full unity between Anglicans and Roman Catholics.
In a Common Declaration, issued in Rome Oct. 5, the two say that the differences “cannot prevent us from recognizing one another as brothers and sisters in Christ by reason of our common baptism. Nor should they ever hold us back from discovering and rejoicing in the deep Christian faith and holiness we find within each other’s traditions.”
TREVI FOUNTAIN’S WATER WILL BE DYED RED TO HONOR CHRISTIAN MARTYRS. The Trevi Fountain, located in the city of Rome, is one of the most famous fountains in the world. It will be dyed red on April 29, in recognition of the thousands of Christian martyrs all around the world. The event is being helmed by Aid to the Church in Need, a nonprofit organization.
It is their intention to call attention to the Christian persecutions happening globally by making the world famous fountain flow blood red. The organization has expressed hope on their website that the demonstration will help the people being persecuted in the name of their religion, would soon be able to go back to practicing their religion without fear, and with complete freedom.
