Episcopalians have new US home in Catholic church


Pope Benedict XVI named a married former Episcopal bishop Sunday to head the
first U.S. organizational structure for disaffected Anglicans and Episcopalians
who want to join the Roman Catholic Church.

The Pope has offered the following concessions to the Episcopalians.

1.  In depictions of the Last Supper, the table will have place cards.

2.  Edith Wharton is an acceptable substitute for the Virgin.  So is Henry James.

3.  In deference to Episcopalians’ politics, the Beatitudes may begin “I suppose”.


p.s.  Let’s not forget the historic significance of this day:
