"I am honoured to write this foreword for the Anniversary Edition of the Report of the Joint Commission on the Ministry of Healing, which was originally prepared for the meeting of the General Convention in St. Louis, Missouri, 1964. Since the publication of the Report, the ministry of healing has regained an important niche in the sacramental life of the Church. .... I am appreciative of the efforts of the International Order of Saint Luke the Physician for its efforts to strengthen the ministry of healing and for the publication of this special Anniversary Edition. May this offering be of help to you as you undertake a ministry of healing, modeled in the compassionate ministry of our Lord". -- Foreword.
