Sweet Jesus!

Some elements in the waning Anglican Church are thinking about a rapprochement with the Catholic Church over the issue of what place the “Bishop of Rome” (aka- the Pope) could have in their church.  With Roman Catholicism about ready to overtake the Church of England in the UK and with a schism brewing over the issue of gay ordinations and female priests, the conservative elements of the Anglican Church are taking another look at the papacy as a unifying force for their faith.

I think this is not only awesome, but also truly consistent with one of Pope Benedict’s major goals as pontiff: to reunify the Christian churches if possible.  With the Archbishop of Canterbury’s ear and a visit to the Orthodox Patriarch last year, maybe a reconciliation is brewing in our lifetimes.  Truly historic if it can be done!
