The address of Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury, to the July 2006 session of the General Synod of the Church of England. "I make no secret of the fact that my commitment and conviction are given to the ideal of the Church Catholic. I know that its embodiment in Anglicanism has always been debated, yet I believe that the vision of Catholic sacramental unity without centralisation or coercion is one that we have witnessed at our best and still need to work at. That is why a concern for unity -- for unity (I must repeat this yet again) as a means to living in the truth -- is not about placing the survival of an institution above the demands of conscience. God forbid. It is a question of how we work out, faithfully, attentively, obediently, what we need to do and say in order to remain within sight and sound of each other in the fellowship to which Christ has called us. It has never been easy and it isn't now. But it is the call that matters, and that sustains us together in the task".
