H/T to Rosemary, a frequent commenter on this page, for suggesting we link over to John Allen's piece in the National Catholic Reporter on the Vatican's announcement this week on welcoming Anglicans into the Roman Catholic communion.
In many ways the MSM's take on this story has contributed to confusion and misunderstanding. John Allen writes in accessible language about church matters and he responds to the frequently asked questions on this issue.
If you want to understand the Vatican's move on receiving Anglicans into the Church and if you're interested in questions now on the table but yet to be answered, then check out Allen's very helpful report in NCR.
