This is wonderful news. I've been hoping that the Anglo-Catholics would join us Romans now that the Episcopal Church has chosen an alternate route to Christian orthodoxy.

God Bless.

Anglicanism can no longer affirm a Catholic idenity when there is no communion. A confederacy of provinces, characterized by the greatest mistrust between them, is not Catholic, in either sense of the word. There was a reason for a mind as profound as Newman's to be recieved into the Catholic Church. Perhaps digging out his ever-origional thought can illuminate the decisions of those uncertain how to procede.

He has been a frequent commenter on Anglican blogs over the past several years as Anglo-Catholics and Evangelicals in the Episcopal Church has struggled in response to the changes within the Episcopal Church.
