Abstract: Since the beginning of Christianity, the consequences of the separations (regarding doctrine and tradition) have been permanent and painful – full of contrasts (conflicts, differences); contrasts that present a certain phenomenon, by showing it in comparison with another but completely different phenomenon. Therefore the article presents a set of selected positive and negative ecumenial experiences. The purpose of such combination of opposites is to emphasize the characteristic features that particular Churches or Christian Communities present, and simultaneously it shows the Christians’ responsibility for seeking unity. As John Paul II formulated it, ecumenism is “a movement towards unity”. Ecumenism is not merely the “sign of the times”, but it is a duty and responsibility in the face of God and His saving plan. It lies with those who through Baptism became Christ’s body and His people.
