Return to Roots

Pope Gregory the Great sent monks to the land of the Angles. The monk, Augustine, led the mission and became the first Archbishop of Canterbury.

Over the weekend the current archbishop returned to Rome and visited the pope. He gave an address Sunday in Rome at the church of San Gregorio al Celio.  
“One of the hardest yet most important lessons the different Christian communities today must learn is that they cannot live without each other: no single one of them in isolation possesses the entirety of the Gospel” of Christ. That was how the Anglican leader Dr. Rowan Williams introduced his reflection on how the witness of monastic life can offer a key to overcoming the divisions between Christians today.
