1129 A PPENDIX B: V ASSULA R YDÉN AND THE C ONGREGATION OF THE D OCTRINE OF F AITH Rome 30th March, 2003 Dear Readers of TLIG, Since the year 2000 I have had the honour of being in communication with H.E. Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, Prefect for the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith. On the 6th July 2000 I presented to him my humble request of my writings being submitted to further study by the same Congregation and that I be granted the opportunity of answering to the reservations expressed in the Notification of 6th October 1995. His Eminence benignly has granted me this occasion and at the hand of Fr. Prospero Grech submitted a letter to me of 4th April 2002 containing five questions for me to answer. My answers to these questions were then submitted to The Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith on 26th June 2002. Cardinal Ratzinger has now requested me to publish the questions with my replies to them and I am happy to share them with you as an expression of my official standpoint. I pray that the publication of this document may serve the dialogue of truth and of love, so important not only to ecumenism, but also to rendering God ’ s graces fruitful in the church. May God bless you, Vassula
