Interview: Dr. Rowan Williams on Pope Benedict’s role in ecumenical dialogue

"[T]here were some who said, 'Well, you shouldn’t go; this is an act of war.' But I said, 'That’s completely ridiculous, I need to go. I need to keep the friendship, and we need to keep the routine discussion between our churches on an even keel.' And that’s exactly what happened. Together, we set in motion the next round of official talks between our two communions and the creation of the ordinariate didn’t disturb [that].

1y ago
"As I’ve already said, I held no animosity toward the Catholic Church before this moment. It simply seemed irrelevant. In Pope Benedict, though, I saw not only a church leader who offered all that our meandering Anglican hearts sought, but who did so not in the isolation that had become our norm, but as Supreme Pastor of the Universal Church. In short: I saw in him, and for the first time, the papacy of the first millennium that I had seen in the Fathers, and thus instinctively trusted him when he showed how this institution was still to be found in the papacy today ..read more
