Video: Presiding Bishop speaks from Rome

Posted Oct 5, 2016

[Episcopal News Service] Presiding Bishop Michael Curry speaks from Rome during a week when Anglicans and Roman Catholics are participating in a series of events to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the historic meeting in 1966 between Pope Paul VI and Archbishop of Canterbury Michael Ramsey.

The celebrations also recognize the 50th anniversary of the Anglican Centre in Rome, established following that 1966 meeting as an official presence with an ambassadorial function on behalf of the Anglican Communion in the Eternal City. The center houses an extensive library, serves as an ecumenical meeting place and educational center, and includes the offices of the archbishop of Canterbury’s diplomatic representative to the Vatican, Archbishop David Moxon.

    In a world in which Christianity is under siege in many places and experiencing a decline in numbers and influence, it is critical that Roman Catholics and Anglicans press on towards finding and standing on common ground, to proclaim with a common voice the good news of Jesus, the center of the faith of both churches.

    Bishop Curry ~ when you were elected I knew that you and the Pope could and would change the direction of the world. And it sure needs changing. Blessings and prayers from one of your deacons.
