Church unio predicted by Dr. Ramsey

AN eventual union of the Catholic and Anglican Churches was predicted by both Cardinal Suenens, Archbishop of Malines-Brussels, and Dr, Ramsey, Archbishop of Canterbury, in New York last week.

They were the main speakers at a closed seminar on "The Future of the Christian Church" at Trinity Episcopal Institute, which was attended by more than 80 American Episcopal bishops.

Cardinal Suenens told the bishops that he would like to see married men becoming priests in large numbers. But when questioned about priests getting married, he said: "Let's see what happens first" when married men became priests.

He maintained that celibacy was not the major reason for priests leaving the Church. Priests needed to be listened to and to know what their immediate superiors thought of them.

During their week's stay in New York Dr. Ramsey received an honorary doctorate in human letters at Woodstock College, the Jesuit seminary.

'MOVING FAST Dr. Ramsey said at a Press conference that the seminar was "just one incident" along the path of Catholic-Anglican encounters opened up from 1921 to 1926.

Cardinal Suenens said to the journalists that "something is moving, and moving very fast" in Catholic-Anglican relations. He was "confident the Holy Spirit is at work."
