End May and first week of June the first oecumenical congress of the Protestant and Catholic Churches in the history of Germany will be held in Berlin. H.H. the Dalai Lama will also give an address.

The topic is to stop a world crisis and the war in Iraq. Over 150,000 people are expected, perhaps more when it turns out that the Dalai Lamas comes, too, which is an insider information until March.

>From the Catholic side the congress is launched from the lay organization Kirche von unten (Church from below). The Catholic Bishop for Berlin is outraged and shouts: 
Every Catholic who shares the Last Supper with a Non-Catholic will be kicked out! 
The Protestant Bishop for Berlin has no problem with it, saying that they will come together in the name of Jesus Christ and not in the name of an organization.

It will be nevertheless a historical event as it was Germany's Martin Luther who launched the Reformation, which is still unfinished (compare remark in The Mahatma Letters).
