Archbishop of Canterbury will address October Synod meeting

Catholic World News - March 13, 2012

Pope Benedict XVI has asked the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Rowan Williams to address the October meeting of the Synod of Bishops, which will discuss the New Evangelization.

After a joint Vespers service with Pope Benedict, the Anglican leader told Vatican Radio that he had been invited to “give some theological reflections on the nature of mission, the nature of evangelization.” Archbishop Williams said that he was delighted to accept the invitation.

    Why? This man Rowan Williams is the leader of an ecclesial community that persecuted the Catholic Church for centuries and lacks a valid priesthood. Why should any Catholic look to the Anglicans, especially ultra liberal ones like Rowan Williams to learn about evangelization? Don't get me wrong I really like our Holy Father but sometimes I just don't get things like this. They seem so out of line with the whole of Catholic Tradition and they send a messagage of indifferentism.
