Overview

A prominent American archbishop examines the Pope's ministry of unity in the contemporary Church, offering proposals for reform in the way in which the papal primacy is exercised.
This book is a response to a question raised by Pope John Paul II. The Pope asks how the papacy can be reformed so as to be more suitable to the new ecumenical situation of the Church. A basic contention of the book is that doctrinal dialogs are not enough. The hope of Christian unity cannot rest solely on the hope of doctrinal convergence. There must also be reforms within the Catholic Church, reforms of the way the papal office is exercised and reform particularly of the Roman Curia and of curial policies and procedures. Following the direction set by Pope John Paul II in the Encyclical Ut unum sint, Archbishop Quinn looks to the structures and practices of the first millennium Church as an important key to these reforms.
