Vatican insiders say that Pope Benedict XVI is scrutinizing the matter very closely and believes that the Traditional Anglican Communion (TAC) is setting out a path that other Anglicans will follow.+ + +
Here is a related story from the Catholic Herald.
I went to The Catholic Herald article and read this:
Cardinal Walter Kasper, president of the Pontifical Council for Christian Unity, told The Catholic Herald: “It’s not our policy to bring that many Anglicans to Rome.”Not the policy??? What in the world does that mean? Is there some quota for Anglicans converting?
The cardinal’s comments refer to the Traditional Anglican Communion (TAC), a rebel group which claims to represent 400,000 people. Its bishops sent a letter to Rome last month requesting “full, corporate and sacramental union”.
