THE Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Ramsey, last week welcomed what he called the "new trends in the Church of Rome".
Dr. Ramsey was preaching a special sermon in the Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Bayswater. to mark the centenary of the Eastern and Anglican Churches Association.
The Archbishop told the large congregation. attending a special Divine Liturgy, that " The rapprochement of Orthodoxy and the Anglican Churches can look beyond itself as it serves the ecumenical movement in West and East and everywhere."
"Within the movement," he said, "are involved Christians of every tradition. in virtue of our baptism into the Triune Name of God and in virtue of the commitment of Churches to one another in search of the unity which God wills and gives."
Of the search for this unity, Dr. Ramsey said "All of us welcome the new trends. scriptural. patristic. liturgical, within the Church of Rome, and feel these trends to be significant for us all. Unity must." he emphasised, "he unity of all, with all in the name and the will of Christ."
