The Ecumenical Movement was born outside the Roman Catholic Church, just over a century ago. The impetus of this Movement officially came in touch with the Catholic Church during the relatively short, yet eventful Pontificate, of Pope John XXIII. The incipit of each of the five Pontificates since then has been analysed for the ecumenical credentials of each of the men who was elected Bishop of Rome. On the 13th March 2013, we witnessed the election of Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio as the new Pope. In the few months which have passed since the election of Pope Francis, we have been able to focus our attention upon the few, yet highly important, ecumenical pronouncements he has made.

Ruch ekumeniczny narodził się ponad sto lat temu poza Kościołem rzymskokatolickim. Do Kościoła katolickiego zaś oficjalnie wkroczył za czasów stosunkowo krótkiego, lecz pełnego wydarzeń pontyfikatu papieża Jana XXIII. Każdy z pięciu następnych pontyfikatów był już analizowany pod kątem stosunku do ekumenicznego mandatu kolejnych następców Biskupa Rzymu. W dniu 13 marca 2013 r. byliśmy świadkami wyboru kardynała Jorge Mario Bergoglio na nowego papieża. Autor artykułu skupił swoją uwagę na nielicznych, ale bardzo ważnych ekumenicznych wypowiedziach papieża Franciszka w ciągu kilku miesięcy, które upłynęły od jego wyboru.
