In a mountain village in Europe many centuries ago, a nobleman wondered which legacy he would leave to their villagers. Eventually he decided to build a church for them. No one saw the final plans for the church until it was completed.
When people gathered, they marveled at how beautiful and perfect it was. Then someone asked, "But where are the lights? How will it be kindled? "The nobleman pointed to some brackets on the walls.
Then he gave each family a lamp that they would take with them every time they came to church. "Any time you're here, the place where you are sitting to light up," said the nobleman. "Any time that you are not here, so the place will be dark. This is to remind you that every time you fail to come to church, any part of the house of God becomes dark. "

Today we experience something that does not happen very often. Vatican lifted the excommunication of four bishops of the fraternity Pius the Tenth (SSPX issued 1988. Their deep and devout Catholic faith has apparently touched the Pope deeply. This Pope has done is to work to achieve full communion, which takes some time.
Since the Pope is not infallible (although there are statements about this), so it might well be hoping that the Pope with equal zeal changing decisions earlier popes have taken, such as baptism (was originally just immersion, not a little water on head appeared about the year 110-150 AD), vicarious baptism for the dead (forbidden only in the church Synod of Hippo year 393 AD, prior to that practiced in the early church), the view of the nature of God (from the beginning, God was understood as three distinct people, the change took place on the 300's) etc. Though one should perhaps not hope for too much, or?
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church) is faithful solid at the church's original values that Jesus and his apostles taught. Mormons always hope in their hearts that this will be appreciated by other Christians. We call members of other Christian churches for Christians, even though they changed some of their theology, for we respect them and appreciate their devout faith in God.
