† In Memoriam.

For the souls of the faithful departed especially,    The victims of London Bridge . . . .

together with all those we love and see no longer....

Rest eternal grant to them O Lord
            and let light perpetual shine upon them.

No Doctrine of our Own

We have no doctrine of our own. We only possess the Catholic doctrine of the Catholic Church, enshrined in the Catholic Creeds, and those creeds we hold without addition or diminution.

Geoffrey Fisher, Archbishop of Canterbury
