Wahoo!

It has been announced from the Vatican today that the Pope has offered corporate renunion to traditionally minded Anglicans. Details are here in Vatican-speak, the simple version is here.

The Pope has been hugely generous--praised be God for a brave German.

Married clergy

Anglican bishops in union with Rome

Book of Common Prayer (corrected in a more Catholic direction)

The English Hymnal

Anglican Chant

It's all allowed, and encouraged.

This might be the biggest step forward for Church Unity since Michael Ramsey went to Rome.

An English Catholic Church--a real one.

The cultural obstacles to reunion with Rome removed.

Wow.
