Far from helping the ecumeni- cal movement," he continued, "a failure to do this actually damages tile ectunenical move- menl, which aims to bring all souls into the Christian fold." Father O'Brien said the be- ginning of tile convert decline coincided with the launching of lhe ecumenical movement by Polio John XXIII in 1960. The ensuring diseussion, he said, centered on tile l)rospect of re- moving lhe causes of the Sel)a- ration of Proleshmt denomina- tions, stemming from the reli- gious ut)hcawd of the 16th cen- tury. lie continued: "The age-old dream of a uni- ted Christendom h)ok posses- sion of all segments of the Church and created a spirit of warmth and friendship toward ot,r sellarated brethren, Cath. olic leaders rightly l)oinicd ()tit that tile immediate purpose of the newly opened dialogue is to achieve good will and mutual understanding. "This seems to have created tile impression that convert- making is conll)lelely out of style, because it might iml)air lhe ecumenical movement. Ilence there was an immediate slackening of the convert apos- lolate, which has continued to this (lay." for tile "immediate formation of a provisional revolutionary civilian gnvermnent." Asked in press conference whom he had in mind for the l/rovisional govermnent, Falher I loallg QUyllh answered vague- ly: "We suggest that the vari- ous political and religious groups should talk to the mili- tary council. We would like to have a refel'endum ell the l)er- son to head lhc governmellt." About a dozen men sat at a table with Father lloang Quynh during the press conference. In statements nlflde alld docu- ments issued at tile press con- ference, the tragic disorders (if the past three months were ignored. Thieh Phap Tri, a high-ranlcing men)her (if lhe group that fomented these dis- orders, was seated beside Fath- er Hoang Quynh. "Are the religious people here authorized by their own churches?" a Vietnamese jour- nalist asked. "Every man in the Front be- longs to some religion, but as a citizen he can involve himself iu political actions." Father lloang Quynh said. "1 am ill the group not as a clergyman but as a citizen. I am not here as a representative (if the Catholic Church." It is hard to say how many Ileol)le tile Front members speak for.
