The source of many divisions in the body of Christ is far back in the past. If people today meet each other as people of today, maybe they can get past what happened hundreds of years ago, and at least come to understand accurately where each confessional group stands, today.

As an American, and as a convert to Catholicism, I think it’s a blessing to have no “past” that really affects how I view people of other denominations or of other nationalities today.
