Kardinali Augustino Bea, katika Mtaguso wa pili wa Vatikano na baada yake alistawisha sana ekumeni upande wa Kanisa Katoliki.

Majadiliano ya kiekumeni kuhusu Maria yamefanyika kwa wingi kuanzia karne ya 20 kati ya madhehebu mbalimbali ya Ukristo yakifikia makubaliano yasiyotarajiwa awali, ingawa tofauti kubwa zinabaki hasa kati ya Wakatoliki na Waorthodoksi upande mmoja na Waprotestanti upande mwingine.[1]

  1. For example, consensus was reached between Catholics and Anglicans in the Anglican-Roman Catholic International Commission (ARCIC) regarding the role of Mary:
    • The teaching that God has taken the Blessed Virgin Mary in the fullness of her person into his glory as consonant with Scripture, and only to be understood in the light of Scripture (paragraph 58);
    • That in view of her vocation to be the mother of the Holy One, Christ's redeeming work reached ‘back’ in Mary to the depths of her being and to her earliest beginnings (paragraph 59);
    • That the teaching about Mary in the two definitions of the Assumption and the Immaculate Conception, understood within the biblical pattern of the economy of hope and grace, can be said to be consonant with the teaching of the Scriptures and the ancient common traditions (paragraph 60);
    • That this agreement, when accepted by our two Communions, would place the questions about authority which arise from the two definitions of 1854 and 1950 in a new ecumenical context (paragraphs 61-63);
    • That Mary has a continuing ministry which serves the ministry of Christ, our unique mediator, that Mary and the saints pray for the whole Church and that the practice of asking Mary and the saints to pray for us is not communion-dividing. (paragraphs 64-75).
