General Synod 1978 - Cardinal Hume's Address

Collaboration and co-operation in the work of the Lord. Speak in his own name - not an emissary from the Holy See nor the Conference of RC Bishops in England and Wales. A divided Christianity is a scandal.
"When you and I as Christians affirm the dignity of man, we mean more than does the humanist, the Marxist or the liberal agnostic. We affirm two truths." ".. man is made in the image of God....the Word has become flesh and dwells among us." Global problems which seriously threaten the well-being of the human race - hunger, military spending, war. "But even our moral influence as Christians is diminished by our evident disunity." IN the Common Declaration (29 April 1977) Pope Paul & Archbishop Coggan took up the idea voiced by ARCIC which worked closely on the Eucharist, Ministry and Authority in the Church - be reminded that neither Church has ratified the three Agreed Statements. "May I suggest that we must not only listen to each other, but together listen to what the Spirit may be saying."

Hume, George Basil Rev (1923-1999)

"Ite Missa Est"

An article by Fr Bruckberger OP which appeared in the Daily Figaro on January 24 1975 has been translated into English by Owen Roberts.
"Do they take us for Idiots?" - prohibition of one rite, one liturgy, one manner of saying Mass (Mass of St Pius V). Paul VI Mass is authorised not imposed. A perpetual indult exists for the Mass of Pope St Pius V. It concludes with "Let them leave us to worship in a thousand years old rite..."


"Jesus Christ the Way" text

"The annual week of Prayer for Christian Unity has become in recent years something of a convention. It is in danger of being taken for granted." Common devotion to Christ; we belong to Him; he is our peace and reconciliation; have to face obstacles ahead honestly and courageously; the Pope's visit; ARCIC discussions. "Pope Paul VI once said: 'The Pope, you well know, is undoubtedly the gravest obstacle in the path of ecumenism'". "Reconciliation of ministries cannot be cheaply bought, or sought for simple convenience." "I am convinced that these three themes - Peter, Apostolicity and Sacraments - are themes which in one way or another all the Churches are now talking about."

Hume, George Basil Rev (1923-1999)
