Archbishop of Canterbury to meet with Pope

Catholic World News - November 17, 2010

The Archbishop of Canterbury will meet with Pope Benedict XVI on November 18, in a “private meeting” that takes place shortly after the announcement that five Anglican bishops are entering the Catholic Church.

A spokesman for the Anglican leader downplayed the importance of the Thursday meeting, saying that Dr. Rowan Williams regularly arranges an audience with the Pope when he visits Rome. The Anglican archbishop is in Rome this week to take part in a conference marking the 50th anniversary of the Pontifical Council for Christian Unity.

    Archbishop, the door is open for you too. Think about it: you could stun the world, not to mention advance the cause of Christian unity, if you joined those five bishops in coming back to Holy Mother Church. It might even be that you could head up the Anglican-use ordinariate Benedict mentioned. I know an Episcopal bishop who said he'd rather be a door-keeper in the Lord's church than hold the highest title in the wrong one. Something to think about, Archbishop.
