I have been saying, and others are now saying, that Benedict XVI is the "Pope of Christian Unity".
I received a note from a friend that the German page of Vatican Radio has an interview with Walter Card. Kasper, President of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, in which he says:
"Ich kenne gar keinen anderen Kirchenführer, der so oft, so eindringlich und so klar über die Ökumene spricht und sich zur Ökumene bekennt. … I know of no other Church leader who speaks so often, so forcefully and so clearly about ecumenism and is committed to ecumenism."
