The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith released a note today in which it is stated that the Pope is going to promulgate an Apostolic Constitution (the most authoritative kind of document) in which provision is made for the reunion of Anglicans who, after almost 500 years of schism, desire to return at long last to the one true Church of Christ.
Read the note here, with Fr. Z's commentary.
A spokesman for the Traditional Anglican Communion has issued a statement of extreme gratitude to the Holy Father for his generosity in offering a way of reunion which will also allow them to preserve what is good in their spiritual and liturgical heritage.
Let us pray that many Anglicans will respond to the Pope's fatherly invitation.
