UTHBRIDM HERAID Saturday, January 15, 1972 Agreement on Eucharist seen big step to reunion By ALEXANDER CHANCEL- LOR VATICAN CITY (Heuter) Vatican sources see the historic agreement an the interpretation of the Eucharist, or holy com- munion, between the Anglican end Roman Catholic churches the most important step to- wards reunion of the two churches since the Kith-century Reformation. The agreement, published Dec. 31, waa reached by an in- ternational Anglican-Roman Catholic commission at Wind- tor, England, last September. It removes one of the main doctrinal obstacles to unity by ending the centuries-old differ- ences between the two churches over the concept of transubstan- tialion-or what exactly hap- pens during the sacrament of Members fewer but income up TORONTO (CP) The Angli can Church of Canada reported this week that total parish in come in Canada was up by Church merger voted LONDON (Renter) Presby tartans and Congregalionalists m England have voted to com bine Into a single church witti membership of about A joint announcement mode by the Presbyterian Church of England and the Congregation il Church of England and Wales they will join in October to form (be United Reformed Church. The announcement was made after a poll of the Presbyterian Church's members inast, for adopting an attitude to he Eucharist that appears ma- erialistic almost to the point of cannibalism. la a footnote to the document, he Roman Catholics define ransubstantiation as "a change n the inner reality of the ele- ments." "The term should be seen as affirming the fact of Christ's presence and of the mysterious and radical change which takes they say. "In contemporary Roman Catholic theology, it Is not un- erstood as explaining bow the change takes place." This clarified, the Anglicans were prepared to go along with M fundamental statement that communion with Christ in the Eucharist presupposes His trui >resence effectually signified b bread and wine which Ms mystery becomes His hot and Thus, the representatives wth churches agreed that, i ome mysterious way, the brea and wine become Christ's bod and blood. AITH NOT NECESSARY The Anglicans went so far _ i agree that Christ's presence does not depend on the individ ual's faith in order to be the Load's real gift of Himself to His hurch." This appears to annul the Im llcaflon in the 39 articles tha only those who receive the Eu larist "with faith" partake of Jhrist's body and blood. However, the document also uts considerable emphasis on he importance of faith for rec- ognizing the Lord's presence in n Eucharist. It also pleases TO Anglicans by stressing the le of the Holy Spirit and the mportance of the prayer of con secration. It thereby places the sacra lent of the Eucharist in ider context than just the eat g of the bread and wine. Now that it has agreed on the the Anglican-Roman athollc commission Is working achieve a similar agreemen the ministry, which will be discussed at its next meeting to be held in Italy in September.
