Pope offers Anglicans place in Catholicism

The Protestant Reformation, in retrospect, was a movement to place God in the hands of wo/man, whilst the mind of wo/man was being interned within the diocese of capitalism and nationalism. In this, the choice between God and Mammon was resolved by allowing the former to subsist within the latter.

Perhaps this movement, whatever the intentions of the Pope, is yet another corollary of globalisation straining against the fetters of the illusory borders of the nation-state. Sort of a counter-revolution against the recently instituted national status quo. But one has to also be wary of trading the barb-wired nation-state for perspectival confinement under St. Peter's flip flops.
