Bouquet from an Anglican Bishop

THE Anglican Bishop of Southwark. Dr. Mervyn Stockwood, this week has recommended the CATHOLIC HERALD to his people. Writing in his diocesan magazine, The Bridge, he says: "It is alert, outspoken and interesting."

In particular, he points to Canon Francis Drink waters article (July 16, -Foot of the Page") about the Church's preoccupation with liturgy, which he called an "escape route" to avoid facing problems of marriage, world hunger, war and race hatred.

Bishop Stockwood says the same criticism can he made Of his own Church, which has spent "large sums of money, rnan-power and hours on discussions" of matters such as Crown appointments and canon law revision.

Instead. he says, churchmen should direct their energy to social problems and to the country's economic crisis.

On the cover of September's The Bridge is a picture of Bishop Stockwood with Bishop Cowderoy, the Catholic prelate of .Southwark.
