Married Catholic Priests? More on the way.

Vatican creates new structure for Anglicans

Many do not realize there are already a handful of married Roman Catholic priests. These are generally former Episcopalian priests who have "crossed the Tiber" as the expression goes. However, an announcement today by the Vatican saying it will provide easy access for Anglicans wishing to come to Rome yet maintain certain Anglican worship traditions, also included the provision for married Anglican priests to become Roman Catholic priests, though not bishops.

It is believed that Rome has been besieged by Anglicans desiring a theologically orthodox home whilst maintaining their traditions.
"Pope Benedict XVI has created a new church structure for Anglicans who want to join the Catholic Church, responding to the disillusionment of some Anglicans over the ordination of women and the election of openly gay bishops. "
Of particular interest is the fact that this creation by the Vatican does not seem to be born out of ecumenical dialog. That itself could be perceived as a great slap in the face to the Church of England.

Just another embarrassing chapter in the life of Rowan Williams. I do not think history books will be kind to him. We're watching the demise of the worldwide Anglican Communion under his leadership, or lack thereof.
