Anglican-Catholic Dialogue

Traditional Anglican Bishops Endorse Effort to Seek Inter-Communion with the Roman Catholic Church

The Archbishop of the Traditional Anglican Communion and primate of the largest conservative Anglican Church in the world has received an endorsement from the U.S. and Central American Church bodies meeting in Portland, Maine this week to begin developing a plan for intercommunion and unity with Rome. The Most Reverend John Hepworth, the Primate of the Traditional Anglican Communion, attended the meeting of the General Synod of the Anglican Church in America during the week of September 20-24. The Church bodies gave him an endorsement of his efforts to re-establish formal unity with the Holy See in Rome.

Read more about it here and here. Very good news indeed, as it's always nice to see people whose minds (as well as hearts) are in the right place moving closer to Rome. (I wonder how much Bishop Gene Robinson has had to do with this?) And, as Andrew points out, this could be an explanation as to why Archbishop Levanda was appointed head of CDF. Reassuring to think that the Pope might really know what he's doing, right? (As if I ever had any doubts!)
