Pope backing prelature for Anglicans entering Catholic Church?

February 09, 2009

Pope Benedict XVI favors the creation of a personal prelature to accommodate the members of the Traditional Anglican Communion (TAC) who wish to enter the Catholic Church, according to an English Catholic newspaper. The Catholic Herald quoted a "senior figure in the Anglo-Catholic wing of the Church of England" in saying that the Pope hopes to find a proper canonical solution to allow the prompt entry of the Anglican group. The Herald also quotes an unnamed Vatican official: "The Pope is really behind it. The Pontifical Council for Christian Unity is against it, but if the Holy Father wants this to happen, it will." The report runs directly counter to stories that circulated last week, in which Vatican officials said that plans for an Anglican prelature were not under consideration.
