CATHOLICS LOSING COMMON LANGUAGE, ARCHBISHOP SAYS

          VATICAN (CWNews.com) -- Archbishop Tarcisio Bertone, the secretary for the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, has said that the Church needs to "rediscover the alphabet of the faith," because today there is "profound insecurity" about the actual content of Church doctrine, and confusion has made it difficult for Catholics to understand one another.

          Archbishop Bertone made his remarks in an interview with the Italian monthly Ricerca, published by an organization of Catholic university students. He said that a common language of faith, which could unite all Catholics on the basics of doctrine, had been lost. The problem, he said, inhibits not only ecumenical dialogue, but even discussions among Catholics.
