Archbishop of Glasgow says Anglican provision is ‘a way forward’

.- The Catholic Archbishop of Glasgow Mario Conti has commented on the Vatican’s recently announced proposal to welcome Anglican communities into full communion with the Catholic Church. Noting that the faith of individual believers is also important, he said he has long thought such an offer would be “a way forward” for some Anglicans.

“Those seeking full communion with the Catholic Church will find support in the company of others making the same journey and the Holy Father is providing the opportunity for that community of persons to enter together,” Archbishop Conti said in a statement.

“This new opportunity for groups to enter the Catholic Church which the Holy Father foresees will require also that the Church be satisfied that the individuals within that community have a genuine desire to embrace the fullness of the Catholic faith,”

The archbishop also voiced his appreciation for the position of the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of Christian Unity, of which he is a member. The Council said that it must not be forgotten that the faith of the believer is “salient” in any group of the faithful.
