The Situation With the Anglicans Just Got Real

Per Zenit:

The Holy See is following with "serious attention" the request from the Traditional Anglican Communion for "full, corporate, sacramental union" with Rome.

Let's pray that this goes well. The Traditional Anglican Communion is just shy of half a million folks who are in dire need of the Church to rescue them from the shipwreck of Anglicanism.

Speaking of Anglicans, I watched The Other Boleyn Girl this past weekend. Towards the end, the movie remarked that Henry's decision to break with Rome "changed the face of England." One could ask, "Is that supposed to be good or bad?" Is anyone willing even to attempt an argument for the former anymore?

This seems very promising. Do you think they would go with the Anglican Usage like that Church over in Arlington if a deal is worked out, or do you think they would go with the standard mass?

I figure they'll be a usage. Most of the priests will have to be re-ordained anyways, so having them go with the Pauline Mass would just be an unnecessary hurdle

I watched the movie last weekend too. Please excuse my last of historical knowlege but did he really use both of the sisters?

He did have affairs with both of them. I'm not really sure how historically accurate the portrayals were in the movie, though.
