Talks appear to be heating up between Rome and TAC .
I can’t think of bigger news in the history of Anglican-Catholic relations. If this comes to pass (and I sincerely hope it does), it would have far-reaching ramifications:
- The influx of almost a half a million traditional-minded members.
- An open door for traditional Christians in the Church of England to return to Rome.
- Possibly another liturgical option for traditional Catholics.
Making it a personal prelature seems to be a good move, too. It allows TAC members to maintain their own traditions while still being united to Rome. The Catholic Church has a large body of diverse ways to worship (see: Eastern Catholic Churches), so this would seem to be a beautiful way to reuite hundreds of thousands of Christians to the Church while allowing the transition to be a smooth as possible.
