It clearly affects so many of our personal relationships. Just how seriously is the ecumenical movement taken today? Many of us went inside Buckingham Palace recently via television and newspapers. There, Pope John Paul II was visiting Queen Elizabeth II in her capacity as head of the Church of England. LATER, WE saw the Pope and the archbishop of Can- terbury, Robert Runcie, kneeling side by side in the Anglican cathedral at Can- terbury. They prayed for the future unity of Anglicans and Roman Catholics. And renewing their baptismal promises together, they of A Ind.

Box 7417 Little Rock, Ark. 72217 called attention to the fact that, although divided, there is much about Christian faith that they share. The Pope's British visit received considerable at- tention. It marked the first time a Pope had set foot on British soil. But it also was a highly-significant ecumenical event. The gulf of separation and dissension that had existed for more than 400 years between the Anglican Communion and the Roman Catholic Church was being narrowed. POPE JOHN Paul II has demonstrated a strong per- sonal commitment to work for Christian unity. -- In 1979, he traveled to Istanbul to meet Patriarch Dimitrios I, spiritual head of the Eastern Orthodox churches. Ties between the two communities were severed in the year 1054. -- In 1980, the Pope visited Germany, where Martin Luther in 1517 nailed his 95 theses to the door of the castle church in Wittenberg. In Germany, the Pope had the opportunity to meet the Lutheran leaders. -- HIS VISIT to England recalled the break in the 16th century with the Church of England following Henry vIIrs divorce from Catherine of Aragon. In recent years, Protestants, Roman Catholics, Orthodox and Anglicans have taken major steps to repair the damage done by Christianity's divisions. In 1948, two separate movements were merged to form the World Council of Churches. Today, the council fosters co-operation and unity among its many member communions -- Protestant, Anglican and Orthodox. IN THE Roman Catholic Church, new ground was broken in 1964 with the publication of the Decree of Ecumenism by the Second Vatican Council. The council fathers deplored the discord among Christians, saying it contradicts the will of Christ and hinders the work of the church, including the proclamation of the Gospel. Vatican II called on all Christians to work for unity and suggested some ways to do that. One way concerns attitudes. "There can be no ecumenism worthy of the name without a change of heart," the council fathers wrote. They encouraged divided Christians to recognize the need among them for trust and love. The faith of non- Catholic Christians needs to be recognized by Catholics, they Suggested, before a creative discussion about the differences that divide us can be undertaken. A SECONI) step, according to the council, is that of dialogue between members of separated communities. Significant progress already has been made in this area. In England, the Pope and the archbishop of Canterbury thanked members of the of- facial international Anglican- Roman Catholic dialogue commission for the work they carried out during the past decade. Dialogue, of course, is not only for the experts. In a number of communities, there are programs to get lay people involved in ecumenical exchanges that promote understanding and may ease the path to unity. Then, too, there are many projects in which divided Christians work together in an effort to meet needs among the poor, the sick, the jobless and others. IT IS not really surprising takes so many years to resolve differences among Christians for it is often dif- ficult to resolve all kinds of differences among people. The labor for Christian unity can seem slow and tedious. Perhaps because of that, at times, it is easy to lose sight of its real importance or to think it isn't getting anywhere. The labor will continue, however. For, on the night before he died, Jesus prayed for unity -- a unity ultimately to embrace the whole world. < 1982 by NC News Service I Ex-Episcopalian Priest Ordained Vatican City (NC) -- Pope John Paul It ordained 80 men, including a former U.S. Episcopalian priest. Although he had completed a taxing six-day trip to Britain only four days earlier, the Pope spent a busy Sunday with the ordinations. The 80 men ordained by the Pope in St. Peter's Basilica in the afternoon came from 20 nations on all five continents. Among them were six men from the United States, in- cluding Father Stanley Klores, a former Episcopal priest from Chicago who was ordained for the New Orleans Archdiocese. Edward L.
