There will no doubt by many of my brother priests here in Fort Worth who will rejoice mightily at this news. And I am happily that some of them may find it easier to accomplish what they have longed for, full reunion with the see of Rome.
Long-time readers of this blog will recall that I have frequently said, however, that my own convictions are thoroughly Anglican on the matters that have sadly divided us from our Roman Catholic brothers and sisters. Reunion with the bishop of Rome is not in the cards for me so long as papal infallibility is still the teaching of the Roman Catholic Church. So my joy for those friends of mine who have been hoping for this is mixed with trepidation at what this might mean for future of my own diocese and that of ACNA. Time will tell. Let us all pray for wisdom.
