Step Leap Toward Unity
"History may be in the making", reports The Record. "It appears Rome is on the brink of welcoming close to half a million members of the Traditional Anglican Communion into membership of the Roman Catholic Church. Such a move would be the most historic development in Anglican-Catholic relations in the last 500 years. But it may also be a prelude to a much greater influx of Anglicans waiting on the sidelines, pushed too far by the controversy surrounding the consecration of practising homosexual bishops, women clergy and a host of other issues."The Traditional Anglican Communion broke off from the Archbishop of Canterbury in 1991 for a number of reasons: female ordination, same-sex marriage, liturgical revisionism, etc. It upholds a Catholic interpretation of the Thirty-Nine Articles, and has desired unity with Rome for several years now. The Homepage for the TAC is worth perusing, particularly the Appeal to Unity made to Rome.
My question: would the Anglican bishops and priests have to be re-ordained?
