Laudetur Jesus Christus . . .

I'm lost for words . . . What fantastic news! It seems to be on every street corner.

The Holy Father has opened the gates to warmly welcome those Anglicans who wish to be received into full communion with the Catholic Church.

You can read the full text of the joint statement from Archbishop Vincent Nichols and Archbishop Rowan Williams here and the text of the statement from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith here.

Praise be Jesus Christ indeed!

What amazing news and seemingly 'out of the blue' too though obviously there must have been lots of activity 'behind the scenes' that we were unaware of.

Prayers for all those in the Anglican Communion. I expect not all of them will find it welcome news.
