A reader tipped me off about this news item concerning Pope Benedict and the Anglicans.
I think it would be a great thing if more Anglicans came into the Catholic Church. In Boston a few years ago, an Anglican congregation came into the Church with their priest, who was then ordained a Catholic priest. The parish name is St. Athanasius, and they follow the Anglican Use rite. I've never been to their church but once at Christmas I went to a service of lessons and carols that they had, and it was very beautiful. One of our convent chaplains, Father (now Bishop) Lennon was the priest who coordinated their entrance into the Church and he would say something about it from time to time. The people wanted to become Catholic because they were disturbed about trends in the Anglican church. It looks like there's a real opportunity here. What's your reaction?
