The three realities of Mission (Evangelization/Proclamation), Unity (Ecumenism) and Dialogue are explored very concisely by the late Archbishop Marcello Zago, OMI (1932-2001):  see the page "Oblate Missiologists," and click on the article in the bottom of the box.

"The Council Fathers knew that being open to modern culture meant religious ecumenism and dialogue with non-believers.  But afterwards very little was done in that direction.  I have the humility and ambition to want to do something."  Pope Francis to Eugenio Scalfari, editor of La Repubblica, Oct. 1, 2013.


For practical, ongoing ecumenism see the five ways page

With the placement of the People of God before the Hierarchy in the
Constitution on the Church of Vatican II, a reversal of our ministry as Oblates missionaries began.  Russell Shaw's short article in America, "Everyone's Vocation," Sept. 29th 2014 is a must read presentation of this:

Church Before Vatican II Church After Vatican II











 
Why is Holy Spirit reversing the pyramids? So, we can reconcile two almost contradictory truths The Roman Catholic Church is essential for evangelization, and the Roman Catholic Church needs constant reform from other Christian churches and other religious bodies.  For a marvelous. short presentation of this tension,  see Gavin D'Costa. "A Prophetic vision:'Dogmatic Constitution Church' 50 Years Later," America, Nov. 17, 2014, pp. 19-22 Click here

The holding of both truths in tension is necessary for effective evangelization.
