Archbishop of Canterbury addresses Synod

Catholic World News - October 10, 2012

The worldwide leader of the Anglican communion emphasized the personal encounter with God as he addressed the Synod of Bishops on October 10.

Dr. Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury, said that contemplative prayer in particular helps the believer to see the world from the perspective of Christ. “To be contemplative as Christ is contemplative is to be open to all the fullness that the Father wishes to pour into our hearts.”

Addressing the question of the “new evangelization,” which is the subject of this month’s Synod deliberations, Archbishop Williams said that the work of spreading the Gospel begins with an interior conversion. “Evangelization, old or new, must be rooted in a profound confidence that we have a distinctive human destiny to show and share with the world,” he said.
