Cardinal Cassidy says `Dominus Iesus' had `negative impact' on ecumenism
    In a candid exchange with students and faculty at The Catholic University of America in Washington last Wednesday, the head of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity said the recent Vatican document 'has had a very negative impact' on ecumenical relations around the world but expressed confidence that the harm can be repaired.
    "We must try to rebuild bridges which have been a little bit damaged," said Cardinal Edward I. Cassidy in response to a question about "Dominus Iesus," the document on the Catholic Church's role in salvation issued in September by the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.
