"It's amazing to think that 500 years ago we were killing each other over" issues on which there is now consensus between the two communions, said ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth A. Eaton in a Nov. 4 telephone news conference about the declaration.
"We grew up in a time when our communities were absolutely divided; now instead we are rejoicing in the places we find agreement," she added.
Bishop Eaton said Lutherans still had difficulty with the Catholic understanding of "the role of the bishop of Rome" and the issue of papal infallibility.
"We are really sorry for some of the things (Martin) Luther said about (the pope) back in the day," she said, adding that there have been "terrible misunderstandings and, on our part, unfortunate caricatures" surrounding the issue.
"But we really like this one (Pope Francis) a lot," Bishop Eaton said.

After ZOA representative Liz ..., 12 Jan 2015 [cached]
After ZOA representative Liz Berney asked AZM for the procedures to file a complaint, AZM did NOT say that the complaint was time-barred.
Ms. Berney had to send four emails on Dec. 25, 2014 and Dec. 26, 2014, asking AZM which slate AZM was running on and who PPI's slate partners were, and what the procedure was.
Fifth, AZM initially failed to inform ZOA about the availability of any complaint procedure, when Ms. Berney (the ZOA representative to the AEC) first learned that Partners for Progressive Israel was running in the World Zionist Congress election, at an AEC meeting during approximately the first week of December 2014, and asked what could be done. Instead of advising of the existence of a complaint procedure, Judge Gafni and Ms. Rubinstein simply suggested that Ms. Berney should ask the WZO how a slate that supports BDS can run in a WZC election.
Ms. Berney then attended a speech by a WZO official to ask this question on December 6, 2014. The WZO official informed Ms. Berney that there was some sort of court procedure and a WZO Zionist Supreme Court - but the WZO official knew nothing specific about the procedure. ZOA was unable to reach anyone at WZO who knew anything further, and was busy completing its own slate. At the next meeting of the AEC, in late December, Ms. Berney again asked AZM about the procedure. It was after Ms. Berney sent four emails to AZM, that AZM finally (on Dec. 26, 2014) provided some slate partners' identity and the slate name, and explained how and where ZOA could submit its complaint (in two days, which ZOA complied with.)
