Notes
"[B]y The Rt. Rev. John S. Spong, Anglican Bishop of Newark, New Jersey".
Text of "an address ... given by the Rt. Rev. John Spong S. Spong, Bishop of Newark, to an adult study group at St. Luke's Episcopal Church, Montclair, New Jersey on Sunday 5 April [1992]".
Text of one-page Press release, with title "News from the diocese of Newark" dated 31 March 1992 laid in.
"Spong will cite the major barriers he believes to be at the hear of the current impasse between the two communions. The issues, according to Spong, are: (1) the attitude of the Roman Catholic Church toward women. (2) the attitude of the Roman Catholic Church toward homosexuality, and (3) the claim by the Roman Catholic Church of its own infallibility". -- Press release.
"Yet despite the tremendous indebtedness that I feel to the Roman Catholic Church for these gifts, I must also state openly and honestly that the ecumenical movement has in the past quarter century for me deteriorated dramatically. In particular the growing hope that once marked the dialogue between Anglicans and Roman Catholics at official levels is suffering from what many regard as a terminal illness. The official position of the ecumenical relations between these two world bodies has degenerated to the place where any points of difference or disagreement at all stated by any non-Roman Catholic seems to be greeted by anguished screams from the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church and the label 'Catholic-bashing' is bandied about recklessly and inappropriately by these Catholic leaders" (p. 2).
"The day will come, but it will not be in my lifetime nor in the lifetime of John Paul II. when ecumenical union will have a new and better chance to succeed in making us all one in the Body of Christ. I am content to let that day come as I am certain it will. .... But the basis for that union is simply not present today and I dare to state from my side, why that is so" (p. 18).
