  • Vatican opens door to disillusioned Anglicans wanting to join Catholic Church
  • Married priests and bishops to be allowed to “enter into full visible communion”
  • Vatican says “hundreds” of Anglicans have expressed interest in joining
  • Anglicans can retain their rites while recognizing the pope as their leader

This is very interesting because of the fact that both churches are besieged by reformers and reactionaries. Overtime this may end up being something simple and non eventful; however, the Anglican/Episcopal Church do need to keep in mind that radicalism tends to only please radicals.
