In Jan Cardinal Willebrands, using a phrase taken from the ARCIC Final Report, had recognized that 'a new context' is now affecting the discussion of Anglican orders within the Roman Catholic Church because of the development of the thinking in the two Communions regarding the nature of the eucharist and ordained ministry.
We wish to underline at the outset the limits of this study.
We have focused our attention on factors that seem most to encourage the reconciliation of our two Communions. And there are recent developments which have been omitted from consideration in this statement, such as the ordination of women to the priesthood and episcopate within the Anglican Communion.
No realistic observer can exclude these events for 'the new context'. In the Archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas Cranmer, issued a new ritual of ordination, that was destined to replace the medieval rituals hitherto in use in England, of which the rite of Sarum Salisbury was the most widespread.
Nonetheless, the exact meaning and scope of these instructions, as well as the actual decisions of Reginald Pole, have been a matter of scholarly debate. In the late nineteenth century, Pope Leo XIII, acceding to urgent pleading from some unofficial groups of Anglicans and from a few Roman Catholics, commissioned a team of scholars to examine the problem.
And yet the aspiration for Christian unity between Anglicans and Roman Catholics did not come to an end in Almost immediately, this aspiration found expression in private talks, mutual friendships, and scholarly exchanges which bore witness to a slow and gradual convergence.
This quiet convergence was nurtured by theological renewal and it was reinforced in both Communions by somewhat similar liturgical reforms derived from a wider knowledge of early Christian worship.
Gradually there was official recognition of an evolution toward a new context quite different from the one of On the Anglican side the Lambeth Conferences of, and gave official voice to this movement, and on the Roman Catholic side the Second Vatican Council was the most important event that signaled a new context.
Following Vatican Council II, developing ecumenical relations between the Anglican Communion and the Roman Catholic Church have called attention again to the question of Anglican orders.
The conditions of our times have become quite different from what they were in Theology and style of leadership have evolved in the two Churches.
It is now not uncommon to think that the position of the problem of Anglican orders is no longer what it was under Pope Leo.
A fresh examination of the data has shed new light on the subject. According to the bishop, the pope invited him 'to add to our personal conversation'.
This was done in a long letter to Paul VI that the bishop released to the public in English and Latin in February The letter begins with a summary of the papal audience. The pope asked if these would be 'new' Churches. The bishop answered that there would be continuity of ministry in 'the historic episcopate'.
As the bishop of Huron reminds Pope Paul in his letter, 'you mentioned the Bull of Leo XIII as a definitive statement of your Church on Anglican Orders, and noted that it was given after a careful study of historical events and related documents'.
One may note the word, 'definitive'. What is the implication of this term in the context of a private conversation? It comes naturally to the mind of a Roman Catholic referring to a solemn statement made by a pope. But the use of the term does not amount to a doctrinal declaration that the decision in question, while it was definitive in the mind of Leo XIII, must always remain definitive.
The bishop of Huron then 'expressed the hope that these same events and documents, when studied in the new climate of our inter-Church relationships, might possibly allow other interpretations than those that were apparent at the close of the nineteenth century.
It was then that you expressed yourself as willing to receive from me and to consider any related material that I might be able to send'. The bishop also included three requests in his letter: The first request deserves to be quoted at length: That you ask one of your Commissions to review the matter of Anglican Ordinal with the Early Ordinals, with the Roman one described by Hippolytus In all these the matter and form are very close to that of the English Reformation Ordinal.
Also the Commission might review the whole of the English Ordinal through phases of development for a further testing of its intention to continue as the Preface declares 'The Orders of Ministers' When this new study, which I am requesting, is set in our present climate of theological dialogue, we believe that your Commission would arrive at different conclusions.Ashwin Raman @AshwinRaman_.
