The Pope on evangelizing our fellow Christians...

One of the things I thought particularly interesting, as I've pointed out in earlier posts, in the Pope's UK remarks was the overt nature of some of his jabs at Anglicanism, and (continuing) attempts to persuade all that the best kind of ecumenism is conversion to Catholicism.

Now Fr Z has highlighted another symbolic gesture that supports my analysis: when the Pope went to (Anglican) Westminster Abbey for an ecumenical service, he wore a stole of Pope Leo XIII.  Pope Leo XIII was the Pope who declared Anglican orders to be invalid....

Yo, Papa B, you've gotta love him!
