"[W]e offer to the world-wide Church a positive and hopeful outlook on The Final Report. The task of bringing together two different but related ecclesial traditions such as those of the Anglican Communion and the Roman Catholic Church while respecting their identities is a delicate one. We believe it can be achieved. The theological and human issues raised by The Final Report are complex, but together, in openness to the Lord's gift of koinonia,we can build a unity which fosters rather than stifles diversity. We can because we must: 'Give what you command, and command what you will'. (Augustine, Confessions, 10, 29)" -- Intro., p. 2.
