The Pope Comes to Britain

The Pope’s visit to the UK was a surprising success. The protests were minuscule, the pontiff turned out to be both gracious and penitent, and the Anglican-Roman Catholic relationship seems rejuvenated. Meanwhile, the exits of Anglican parishes and dioceses into the Roman communion have been minimal.

One may ask if the two communions aren’t getting along better because they realize they have so much common interest in battling secularism and in holding together progressive and traditionalist factions within their respective churches?
