    A hopeful meeting. What will goal,be? Are we seeking more e unity? These events don’t have a visible plan, or a list of accomplishments. I am eager to see the final briefing on this one event. I hope it is sharply focused.

  2. Peter K. Murphy says:

    This was a most historic meeting – commemorating the first meeting, 50 years ago, of an Archbishop of Canterbury with a Pope since the Reformation. Let us hope that the bishops that were sent out from this Vesper service, both Anglican and Catholic, work in their countries to foster greater cooperation among the churches.

  3. Mary Koenig says:

    More than ever, it is crucial for Christians to come together and decide what unites us. While we have faith that our God has all in His Hands, we must act to spread the message of peace and the good news of Jesus. Praise God .
