Anglicans becoming Catholic – We'll Have to Wait and See

Thanks to John Hobbins for pointing out this article from the New York Times on the recent invitation for Anglicans to join the Roman Catholic Church.  I think the author, Rachel Donadio, hits the nail on the head.  The effects of this move are going to be long lasting and it is far too early to tell what exactly those effects will be.  On the one hand, this has been a reaching out to the more conservative elements within Anglicanism.  On the other hand, it brings to the fore (not that they have ever really gone away) discussions of celibacy, which are of great significance to the more liberal elements of Roman Catholicism. So, this should get interesting.

More thoughts on this later …
