WE MUST WAIT AND SEE – EVIDENTLY

I'm not at all certain what the commander in chief of the Vatican Nation's, English fifth columnists is on about here. It's definitely spin but it could also, easily, be a threat. From passed experience I'm going for threat.

From CATHOLIC NEWS AGENCY:

Archbishop Vincent Nichols said this week that the publication of the apostolic constitution allowing Anglicans the option of entering into full communion with the Catholic Church “will have important consequences” in England.

In an interview with Vatican Radio in Rome, Archbishop Nichols said, “The reaction to this document is, in a certain sense, measured. There was a strong reaction at first, which was inflated by the media. Now we are in a phase of evaluation, reflection and prayer. In order for there to be a “complete assessment of the Pope’s initiative one must consider the important announcement of the start of the third phase of the Anglican Roman Catholic International Commission. In my opinion, the two are related. The response of the Holy Father has given a positive stimulus to ARCIC's debates. Anglicanorum coetibus is not a coincidence. In our joint declaration, the Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury and I have said that this move by the Holy See will end a period of uncertainty, and consider this to be a positive contribution to a wider dialogue between the Catholic Church and the Anglican Communion as a whole, which will have important consequences for the country.”

    Important consequences for the country, no less!
    These people really live in a bubble of self importance.

  2. It sounds as if perhaps there has not been a mad rush of Anglicans towards the Tiber sporting snorkles and flippers. After reading the fine print, why should there have been. What a strange little dream world the Vatican is.

    That’s a shame, I’d pay to see this.
