Towards Christian Unity
The Commission for Christian Unity has recently published a small book, entitled 'Towards Christian Unity', to mark the fiftieth celebration of the Decree Unitatis Redintegratio (The Restoration of Unity) which was promulgated on 21st November 1964 by the Second Vatican Council.
The book was recently launched at the Eisteddfod. The photograph shows Archbishop George Stack of Cardiff and Bishop Emeritus Edwin Regan of Wrexham.
In his forward to the book, Archbishop George Stack reminds us of the challenge and commitment to all Christians to follow the prayer of Jesus, 'That they may all be one'.
The book is a compilation of quotations to stimulate discussion among Christians on their common journey. The Commission hopes this bilingual book will be useful for personal prayer and reflection, and a help to groups in their discussions and prayer together.
These books are a gift to our parishes, made possible through the generosity of sponsors. The books will be distributed, in a small number, to each parish on the 2nd October. They are now available for download from this website.
