ABSTRACT
The article discusses the author's transition from being a Lutheran pastor to becoming a Roman Catholic. The author notes that his reason for becoming a Catholic in 1990 was to become a more complete Lutheran. He explains his foundation as an ecclesial Christian citing the inseparability of Christ and the Church. The author expresses hope that his decision to become a member of the Catholic Church will contribute to prospects of a Lutheran-Roman Catholic reconciliation.
