Fully Visible Anglican Catholic Union Not Likely Soon

That’s according to New Zealand Anglican Archbishop, David Moxon. Well, with a crew looking like this, I’m going to have to agree with his assessment:
New Zealand Anglican Archbishop, David Moxon, says there seem to be many obstacles to fully visible Anglican Catholic union and it is unlikely to be achieved in the near future. He is the co-chairperson of the Anglican-Catholic International Commission (ARCIC) and was speaking at the Commission’s meeting in Hong Kong last week. “We can, however, do a lot of things together during this slow process,” he says…
The Anglican—Roman Catholic International Commission (ARCIC) is an organization created in 1969 which seeks to make ecumenical progress between the Roman Catholic Church and the Anglican Communion. The sponsors are the Anglican Consultative Council and the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity (formerly the Secretariat for Promoting Christian Unity).
ARCIC seeks to identify common ground between the two communions…
That common ground is rapidly crumbling. In any event, I still maintain that with the coming of Anglicanorum Coetibus, ARCIC is dead in the water.
