The remarks by the Archbishop of Canterbury about the Roman Catholic Church in Ireland

The unfortunate remarks concerning the Irish Roman Catholics by the Archbishop of Canterbury, at this particular time of Easter, are most regrettable. What we should be doing is praying for our Roman Catholic brothers and sisters as they endeavour to cope with the crisis in the Church in Ireland. If he thinks that the Roman Catholic Church in Ireland has lost all credibility he should reflect that there are also those of us who think that the Church of England has lost all credibility in particular by the cavalier way it seems to be treating those of us who, for conscientious and theological reasons are unable to accept the consecration of women to the Episcopate. If Archbishop Rowan Williams really believes what he says, that he considers very few will be taking up the Pope’s offer of an Ordinariate from the Church of England, he could be in for a very big surprise.
