From the Introduction:

“A guiding principle, although not specifically stated in any document, which helped achieve agreement between the Patriarchate of Moscow and the Russian Orthodox Greek Catholic Church of North America was to forget the difficulties and misunderstandings of the past and rather to look to the promise of the future. This resulted in April 1970 in the establishment of the Autocephalous Church in America as the nucleus and the eventual unifying force for all Orthodox faithful in America, so essential if the Orthodox Church is to survive and grow in a pluralistic and secularistic society.”
