This Handbook offers practical suggestions for implementing and strengthening spiritual ecumenism, the heart of all efforts to re-unite divided Christians. It is grounded in the documents that have shaped the Catholic Church's engagement in seeking Christian unity, those of the Second Vatican Council, as well as others such as the encyclical Ut Unum Sint and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. A Handbook of Spiritual Ecumenism is written for anyone who values deeply the restoration of Christian unity, especially those responsible for promoting it at various levels of Church life. Cardinal Kasper extends a loving invitation to Christians of all traditions, encouraging them to join their Catholic brothers and sisters in prayer and action for unity.

About the Author
Walter Cardinal Kasper, born in Germany in 1933, was ordained a priest in 1957. An accomplished theologian and author of many books and articles, he studied at the University of TÃ¼bingen and taught at The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. Wide respect for Kasper's ecumenical work led John Paul II to appoint him president of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, a position he has held since 2001.
