Holy Smoke - C of E bishop will lead Anglicans to Rome

H/T: Transfigurations

A blogger, Damien Thompson, reports:

The Bishop of Ebbsfleet, the Rt Rev Andrew Burnham, is to lead his fellow Anglo-Catholics from the Church of England into the Roman Catholic Church, the Catholic Herald will reveal this week.

~~~

In his statement, Bishop Burnham explains why he is rejecting the code of practice offered to traditionalists by the General Synod last night. "How could we trust a code of practice to deliver a workable ecclesiology if every suggestion we have made for our inclusion has been turned down flat?" he asks.

That "code of practice" now provides for the election of women priests to the episcopate in the Church of England. Quite a contentious piece of news for them.

Several hundred priests have already indicated they will have to reconsider their relationships with the C of E.

BTW, the good +Burnham is one of two "flying bishops" in the province of Canterbury. I guess that makes his boss the Archbishop of Canterbury? Even if I'm wrong, ++Williams can't be too happy about this development.

God Bless Ya'll !
