    Chicago, Illinois: Hyde Park Seminary returns hand-written New Testament

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/c...114-story.html

    A heart warming story that gives me hope for unity of Christendom.
    "Shall we mourn here deedless forever, a shadow-folk, mist-haunting, dropping vain tears in the
    thankless sea?"

    Interesting. I don't see how it affects unity, however. They're returning it because it had been stolen, and returning it is the right thing to do. And since it's been digitized, there's less reason to keep it for study.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

    They've repented of keeping a precious stolen object and been forgiven by the wronged.

    Sure. Though it seems from their reaction that they were not aware that it had been stolen until they were asked to return it.
