Kasper warns Williams that, if the C of E won't sit still long enough to get her picture taken, she won't be allowed to make her first communion. From The Times of London:
A Vatican cardinal has told the Church of England that to consecrate women as bishops would make unity "unreachable" and shared Communion impossible.
Cardinal Walter Kasper, the head of the Council for Christian Unity, has urged the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, and his fellow bishops not to proceed towards women becoming bishops without support from the Orthodox and Roman Catholic Churches. ...
Cardinal Kasper, a compatriot of the Pope who as a young priest taught, like him, at Tübingen University in Germany, addressed a private meeting this week of the Church of England's bishops at Market Bosworth, Leicestershire.
Poor Archbishop Williams. He may know a bureaucratic gambit or two for delaying The Inevitable with fabricated committee-work, but he can no more stop the turbines of progressivist Progress than the onset of winter. Worse, he has to pretend to be concerned about it.
