Traditionalist Anglican group in US seeks union with Catholic Church
March 04, 2010
Leaders of the traditionalist Anglican Church in America have announced their decision to make a formal request for entry into the Roman Catholic Church under the provisions of the Pope's apostolic constitution Anglicanorum Coetibus. The group, which claims 99 parishes in the US, is asking the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith to implement the Pope's plan, forming an Anglican ordinariate in the US.

Thanks be to God - I'm sure there will be great rejoicing in Heaven as well as among Catholics here on earth! Thank God for His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI, too - firstly we were blessed with Summorum Pontificum and then Anglicanorum Coetibus, and hopefully a reform of the reform on the way! May Pope Benedict be granted many more years as the Successor of Peter, and may his endeavours bear much fruit!
