Framework for Anglicans to Come Home?

[Catholic Online] 12 Jul 2008--The "Catholic Herald", Britains' leading Catholic Newspaper, has been the most accurate of news sources in covering the continuing events arising out of the disintegration of the Anglican Communion over issues concerning orthodoxy and orthopraxy.

In its July 11, 2008 edition,we find these insightful thoughts from Damien Thompson, the most accurate correspondent covering these dramatic events:

"Most of all we ask for ways that allow us to bring our folk with us." Well, you can't put it plainer than that. The Rt Rev Andrew Burnham, Bishop of Ebbsfleet and one of the Church of England's three "flying bishops", wants to lead his people to Rome.

And - this time round - Rome seems ready to provide the "ways" that will allow the exodus to consist of more than simply a mass of individual conversions.
