A report on the Commonweal magazine website, posted yesterday, May 30, is entitled "Nicea III in 2025," suggesting that the proposed gathering may be an Ecumenical Council, and not just a Roman Catholic Council, but a Council for the entire Christian world.

"It is not immediately clear what the actual nature or real purpose of this gathering would be."
