Towards Christian Unity in Melanesia from the Perspective of Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands in the Light of Ut Unum Sint

In response to the prayer of Jesus, “May they all be one” (Jn 17:21), taught by Unitatis Redintegretio and echoed by John Paul II in Ut Unum Sint to promote every suitable initiative aimed at witnessing to unity and communion between Christians, this thesis studies the path towards Christian unity in the context of Papua New Guinea (PNG) and the Solomon Islands (SI)…. It examines the possible efforts towards unity, and proposes ways of commitment for the Church in PNG and SI towards full communion in the faith, sacraments, and ministry. This is enhanced through the evangelization of culture; reverence for traditional beliefs; collaboration in responding to various social issues; promotion of peace; and integral ecology in the light of Church teachings.
