Anglo-Catholic : LONDON: Lambeth Palace 'implacably opposed' to Pope's Anglican plans

LONDON: Lambeth Palace 'implacably opposed' to Pope's Anglican plans

This from a good source in Rome: apparently both Lambeth Palace and elements in the Vatican's Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity were "implacably opposed" to Pope Benedict XVI's dramatic new arrangements for Anglicans.

The source also reports speculation that Archbishop Rowan Williams put pressure on Vatican ecumenists to stop the Apostolic Constitution being issued.

For all I know, he did persuade Cardinal Kasper, head of the Pontifical Council, that it wasn't a good idea. But this particular portfolio was taken out of Kasper's hands a long time ago; indeed, it looks as if the cardinal was simply "informed" what was happening by the CDF.

The professional ecumenists on both sides had decades to get this right. They screwed it up. So now Pope Benedict has opened up another route to unity: a high-speed bypass.
