Abstract: This ecumenical reflection on the Confessio Belgica makes the link between the Reformation era and our own times. My Catholic re-reading of the life of Guy de Brès made me particularly sad about the history of martyrdom – often victims of Roman Catholic oppression – in this period. Thereafter I discussed the publication by ecumenical patriarch Cyril Lucaris of a confession which reflects important parallels with the Confessio Belgica, even if this story once again culminated in martyrdom. As far as the enduring ecumenical significance of the Confessio
Belgica is concerned, I first discussed the good intentions of both the Second Vatican Council and Pope John Paul II to repent for the sinful past, to end with an introduction into the Mennonite-Catholic document Called Together to Be Peacemakers (2003).
