Calvin’s Influence on Reformed-Catholic Dialogue?

Really, Vatican?

William Henn is a Capuchin Franciscan Friar and Professor of Ecclesiology at Rome’s Gregorian University and a member of the Catholic Reformed Dialogue Commission. He spoke about how much the theologian John Calvin has been an influence on the reformed Catholic dialogue.

Has he ever read what Calvin said about Rome? He wasn’t a fan (to put it charitably). Unless, of course, the good Franciscan means that Calvin would have disapproved of such dialogue and been an influence that way.

[I like the way ‘reformed’ has a little ‘r’ while Catholic has a big ‘C’.  That speaks volumes about the ‘dialogue’ which, if Rome is following its usual procedure, means asking the Reformed to abandon their heretical ways and return to the fold].
