Ecumenical Acumen Excursus Cont'd.

A friend of Fr. WB's and mine returned to the Catholic Church in college, and promptly enlisted with the Benedictines. He is wonderful. While chatting with him about the experience of those who are contemplating entering the Church, he had the following to say about Anglicans/Episcopalians in particular. Here are his words from Norcia:

Becoming Catholic always sounds terrifying to Episcopalians but really it's not that bad. You must accept a little bad taste and some liturgical confusion. You get genuine authority, sound doctrine, a valid sacramental system, apostolic succession and a fantastic Pope. That's not such a bad trade is it?

What do you think?
