C.S. Lewis: “closer to one another than those who are at the fringes”

“It is a little difficult to explain how I feel that though you have taken a way which is not for me, I nevertheless can congratulate you — I suppose because of your faith and joy which are so obviously increased. Naturally, I do not draw from that the same conclusions as you — but there is no need for us to start a controversial correspondence! I believe that we are very dear to one another but not because I am at all on the Rome-ward frontier of my own communion. I believe that in the present divided state of Christendom, those who are at the heart of each division are closer to one another than those who are at the fringes.”

C.S. Lewis (letter written to a friend who had converted to the Catholic Church)
