Cardinal Kasper's address to the House of Bishops of the Church of England

New Directions evokes a wide range of angry responses to its articles and the opinions expressed, which is just as it should be. But nothing recently has stirred up quite such a unified outburst of rage and fury from readers as the inadvertent omission of our cover strap-line Serving Evangelicals and Catholics seeking to renew the Church in the historic faith'. It has been a frustrating mistake, for it appears each time in the layout only to disappear on the paper. However, it is encouraging if there is such a strong commitment not to separate the two believing branches of the Church of England.
