A stride down the road to unity

Arcic III report


Proposals for a radical overhaul of the way the Catholic Church is run, using as a model the synodical system favoured by the Anglican Communion, have emerged from a seven-year study of the comparative weaknesses in the two systems of church government. Each system has defects, according to a ground-breaking report from the Anglican–Roman Catholic International Commission (Arcic), Walking Together on the Way, and each should learn from the other how to correct them. This is the most creative product yet of the theological dialogue between the two Churches, and recognises the long-overdue need to give ordinary Catholics, laity and clergy, a say in decisions that profoundly affect them.
