Until forty years ago, Anglicans and Catholics, wherever they co-existed, viewed each other in a way that was determined by centuries of separation. Although there had been various attempts at building bridges, such as the Anglican Papalist movement and the Malines Conversations, it was not until the 1960s, in the wake of the groundbreaking Second Vatican Council, that the ice began to thaw. The seeds sown by such early pioneers of unity such as Gregory Dix, William Temple, and Yves Congar began to bear fruit as the Anglican Centre in Rome was opened and the Anglican Roman Catholic International Commission (ARCIC) was created.

Frederick M. Bliss

Frederick Bliss SM is a prominent teacher of Ecumenics at the Angelicum University, an institution which trains men for the Roman Catholic priesthood, many of them for service in English speaking communities.

New Page 1 'It is impressive that a Roman Catholic should be the one to tell the story of Anglicans in Rome from the heady days following Vatican II to the present. Professor Bliss brings out the importance of personal friendships in the reconciliation of churches - that is as true for Archbishops and Popes, for Directors of the Anglican Centre and ecumenical staff, as for those around the tables of theological conversation. The way ahead, in a somewhat fragile situation, is not immediately clear but this story, honestly told, ought to convince us that relations between Anglicans and Roman Catholics have changed dramatically and that the results of the theological dialogue are there to be harvested. We must not cease getting to know one another, "building friendships and searching out ways and means of becoming one believing people". Professor Bliss's account deserves to be widely read.'  Dr Mary Tanner
