I recently posted a link to John Allen's report on the Vatican's move to facilitate the welcoming of disaffected Anglicans into communion with the Roman Catholic Church.
(Interested in learning more about the Anglican communion? Here's their website.)
Margaret Steinfels at Commonweal also linked to John Allen and you might want to read the interesting comments on her post, especially Robert Mickens' thoughts (scroll down the comments on Steinfels' post).
In the combox on this page, Irish Gal posted this link to Fr. Dwight Longnecker's blog, Standing on My Head, regarding the same topic.
Looks like we'll have to wait until the Apostolic Constitution on this topic is published before we understand what's happened and what's at stake ecclesiologically, liturgically and ecumenically.
