Dr. Ramsay Interview

Page 2 from 26th October 1962


THE CATHOLIC HERALD makes journalistic history this week. On pages 10 and 11 of this issue, we carry an interview given to Hugh Kay, assistant editor, by Dr. Ramsey, Archbishop of Canterbury. It is the first of its kind to be accorded to a Catholic newspaper in this country by the head of the Anglican Church.

In the eve-of-the-Vatican-Council talk, Dr. Ramsey spoke of his hopes and prayers for the Council's success and outlined some of the results Anglicans hoped for from it.

The Archbishop also outlined the theological points where Anglicans found it impossible or difficult to understand or accept Catholic teaching.

The interview marks another step along the road to better ecumenical relations between Catholics and Anglicans, a road already signposted by Lord Fisher's historic visit to the Vatican in December, 1960, by Cardinal Bea's visit to Lambeth Palace last August and by Archbishop Heenan's constant work, as chairman of the English Bishops' Unity Committee, to improve the atmosphere between Catholics and Anglicans.

Among laymen, Count Michael de la Bedoyere and Mr. John M. Todd have been outstanding for their work in fostering a new spirit of ecumenicism in this country. We are proud to make a new and important contribution to this work by publishing the text of the interview which • Dr. Ramsey gave to Hugh Kay.
