Francis Wants to Join Methodists “in the Breaking of the Bread”

[Join “in the Breaking of the Bread”; i.e., intercommunion such as “Catholic” John Kerry during his 2004 presidential campaign eating a small cube of bread and drinking grape juice from a small plastic container on Palm Sunday at a Methodist church?]

Christians in “our respective communities” may “strengthen one another by our witness to the faith” according to Pope Francis during a meeting with a delegation of the World Methodist Council on October 19. Methodists and Catholics do not share the same faith.

Francis praised John Wesley (+1791), the founder of the Methodists, for helping others to “live a holy life” and asked to pray that “we will be able to join one another in the breaking of the bread”, a term the Protestants use in order to express that in their liturgy no consecration takes place.
