Cardinal pours cold water on union with rebel (TAC) Anglican group

Republished in VirtueOnline from the[ir] Catholic Herald, London, December 6, 2007, it's some high level devangelization.
One of the Vatican's most senior cardinals has dismissed the idea that a breakaway group of Anglicans might be received into the Catholic Church en masse - despite Benedict XVI's personal support for such a move. Cardinal Walter Kasper, president of the Pontifical Council for Christian Unity, told The Catholic Herald: "It's not our policy to bring that many Anglicans to Rome."

It hasn't appeared to be policy to bring that many Catholics into the Catholic Church, let alone Anglicans. We'll see if that's changing.

    One wonders if any of the apostles at Pentecost told St. Peter, "Its not our policy to bring this many Jews into the Church." I do think I every remember reading a statement like that in the book of Acts. Do you?
