As a pastor of the entire Christian Church, Pope Francis could point out in his homily the moral decline that is plaguing the Anglican Church, especially ordinations of openly and actively homosexual bishops. He could also mention their lack of Apostolic succession and invite them to consider the end of their schism and a full communion with the Catholic Church.
