Archbishop of Canterbury Arthur Michael Ramsey and Pope Paul VI meet in Rome. This is the first official meeting between heads of the Anglican and Roman Catholic churches after more than 400 years of division. The last time an Archbishop of Canterbury visited the Vatican was a courtesy call by Archbishop Geoffrey Fisher to Pope John XXIII in December, 1960.

In advance of the week-long talks between the two, Pope Paul VI says:

"It is not yet a visit of perfect union but it is a visit of friendship and of a beginning toward union. Therefore we are moved, anxious, and happy. Let us pray that the Lord may grant to His church that unity of all Christians which He recommended to us so much."
