JUSTIN TWO OF THEM!
Yes, in front of Archbishop Justin Welby, the new Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury, the Archbishop of Rome tells him that he approves of Pope Benedict's authorization of the Anglican Ordinariate for disaffected Anglicans!!!!!!!! It doesn't get any better than this folks!
The Archbishop of Rome's exact words: "I am grateful, too, for the sincere efforts the Church of England has made to understand the reasons that led my Predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI, to provide a canonical structure able to respond to the wishes of those groups of Anglicans who have asked to be received collectively into the Catholic Church: I am sure this will enable the spiritual, liturgical and pastoral traditions that form the Anglican patrimony to be better known and appreciated in the Catholic world."
If this ain't the "hermeneutic of continuity" with Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, well I don't know what is. And to boot, the new pope is collaborating with the old pope in writing his first encyclical on faith, using much of what the old pope has already prepared. In fact the new pope said just yesterday that four hands are writing the new encyclical on faith. I, for one, can't wait for it and I'm sure it will be a BOMBSHELL!
