According to Damian Thompson, there are going to be a couple of press conferences tomorrow regarding Anglicans and Roman Catholics. From the Vatican:
We inform accredited journalists that tomorrow, Tuesday 20 October 2009, at 11am, in the John Paul II Hall of the Press Office of the Holy See, a briefing will be held on a theme pertaining to the relationship with the Anglicans, at which His Eminence Cardinal William Joseph Levada, Prefect of the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, and His Excellency Mgr Joseph Augustine Di Noia OP, Secretary of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments will take part.
And from Lambeth Palace:
You are invited to a press conference with Archbishop Vincent Nichols (Archbishop of Westminster) and Archbishop Rowan Williams (Archbishop of Canterbury) on Tuesday 20 October at 1000. The press conference will take place at 39 Eccleston Square, London SW1V 1BX.
What, if anything, does all this mean? No idea. Like the President said during the campaign, that’s above my pay grade. The second presser could mean that the Archbishops of Westminster and Canterbury will both announce their support for some kind of climate change agreement. Or it could mean something else.
