In an interview with Pauline monthly Jesus, Justin Welby talks about his relationship with Francis and the great respect and the understanding that exists between them. Their dialogue will only grow stronger according to the Primate of the Church of England
We need to start walking together with a deep love for one another, accepting our respective differences. But walking means getting up and embarking on a journey together, not waiting for all doctrinal questions to be resolved before doing anything. There are various things we are working on together but I cannot reveal these yet as they are confidential, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby said in a long and exhaustive interview with Italian Pauline monthly, Jesus.
Luca Attanasios interview was an open heart confession covering many aspects of Welbys relationship with Francis. What emerges is a willingness on the part of the Church of England to move away from past beliefs and towards unity. There are of course doctrinal stumbling blocks that cannot be ignored and the two Churches interpret theological and ethical issues differently. But Welby is adamant he has found in Francis a spiritual leader of great merciful openness who really knows how to listen and engage in dialogue.

Canterbury probably wants the Pope to hang out with him in a gay bar, to show him that he might like it.
The Anglicans always remind me of their first leader, Henry VIII. You DO remember the little rhyme about the fate of his wives, don't you?
I wonder how the Pontiff addresses that with the Archbishop of Canterbury. (Rhetorical.)
I have no idea what this means. Classic liberal clergy - they speak almost exclusively in platitudes, using pios sounding faith words but saying absolutely nothing.
Pios = pious. Typo
