'Mb NLWMAN Association's nine past presidents since Vatican II who seek support in their attempt to revive the spirit of the five days National Pastoral Congress that was held in Liverpool five years ago, probably agree that baptismal equality , among all Christians was the main ecumenical message of the NPS's final report 'The Easter People'.
Yet, even though Trinitarian baptism makes every baptised Christian a blessed quorum through the indwelling of the Blessed I tinily, neither the phrase 'blessed quorum' nor 'baptismal equality' appeared in 'The Easter People' document.
Nonetheless, like the spirit of Vatican 11 the spirit of the NPC has never remained static.
I wonder if members of the Newman Association regard the more recent further development as being conducive to the constructive spirit of 'ecumenical progress. Namely, on the feast of the Annunciation last year 'The Act of Entrusting to Our Lady' that was made by Pope John Paul in union with all of our Church's bishops gave officially infallible recognition to Our Blessed Lady's extrahuman equality with each of the Divine Persons of the traditional Blessed Trinity.
Consequently, Our Lady's infallible identity as one of the Persons of the Most Blessed Quorum makes every baptised Christian a blessed pentarchy of five persons through the indwelling of God's Quorum of Four Persons since last year's feast of the Annunciation.
