Priestesses With Crosiers No Bar to Full Communion With Rome

The Bear did not get out of bed this morning thinking, "Boy, I can't wait to blog about crazy, erm, stuff in the Church today!" But consider this a sequel to his article about including Episcopalian priestesses in the Prayers of the Faithful during Mass. According to the Church, the Bear's wrong about that, too.
(Vatican Radio) The Catholic Church remains fully committed to its dialogue with the Anglican world, despite the Church of England’s decision to ordain women bishops. In a statement issued as the Church of England’s General Synod on Monday voted to admit women to the episcopate, the Catholic bishops of England and Wales said the goal of ecumenical dialogue continues to be full visible ecclesial communion.
That will be some trick, what with mitered priestesses with crosiers and all, but we are animated by the same hope that leads us to fondly imagine Martin Luther and Nero gorging together in Heaven instead of roasting in Hell.
