The Dicastery Promoting Christian Unity has published today new document The Bishop of Rome. Primacy and synodality in ecumenical dialogues and responses to the encyclical Ut unum sint.

The Bishop of Rome is a study document that presents for the first time a synthesis of the responses to the encyclical Ut unum sint and of the ecumenical dialogues on primacy and synodality.

The document concludes with a proposal from the Dicastery that identifies the most significant suggestions for a renewed exercise of the Bishop of Rome’s ministry of unity “recognized by all concerned” (Ut unum sint, 95)
