called for closer relations between Protestants and Catholics, and says he will continue to advance the cause of reunion between the Churches "no matter what the criticism may be".
In the August issue of his diocesan review, The Bridge, Dr. Stockwood says: "It is my hope that the friendship which exists (between Anglicans and Catholics) at official levels will spread to every parish".
He adds: "1 intend to seek opportunities to advance the cause of reunion both with Catholics Ind Free Churchmen, no matter what the criticism may be. 1 pray that the diocese will be infused with the spirit of daring and charity."
Congratulating Dr, Cowderoy on being made Archbishop of Southwark, Dr. Stockwood writes: "For many years I have had the happiest relationship with Dr. Cowderoy, and the two of us have often exchanged visits.
"During July, owing to his initiative, a small team of theologians from our diocese met a team from his to discuss the nature of the Church. They spent the inside of a week at a convent in Rini-tampion."
