Members of the Anglican/Roman Catholic Dialogue of Canada have been revisiting our common moral tradition in response to the statement of the Anglican/Roman Catholic International Commission, Life in Christ: Morals, Communion and the Church.1 We wish to affirm this joint statement, in particular the recognition that “Anglicans and Roman Catholics derive from the Scriptures and Tradition the same controlling vision of the nature and destiny of humanity and share the same fundamental moral values” (Life in Christ, Introduction). This insight applies to our participation as members of Canadian society. We reaffirm that in our common heritage there are principles which shape our participation in the human community. These are increasingly challenged by the present climate of social and economic change. As representatives of our two churches, we affirm them as a basis of our common witness to the Gospel and an expression of our common faith in the Trinity.
