The Catholic Church is responding to the many requests that have been submitted to the Holy See from groups of Anglican clergy and faithful in different parts of the world who wish to enter into full visible communion," Levada said.

If the Catholic church see's there is Money to be made from accepting them then I definitely think they will go for it. They seem to be motivated by $ just like every other organized religion.

Some may believe that it's a sign of unity. I differ in that I believe it will be another sign of great apostasy.
Probably from a misreading of Revelation. Looking at the rest of scripture tells a different story. The Bible speaks of a Church "united" in "body and soul" (Acts 4:32). There shall be one fold and one shepherd" (John 10:16). Paul likens the Church to "the body of Christ" (1 Cor. 12:27, Eph. 5:30, Col. 1:18.) If Christ's Church is His body, it must be uniform. Jesus prayed for this uniformity, asking the Father that "they may be one as we are one" (John 17:22). Jesus praying for a unity far closer than the unity of my own body and soul. He wanted His body, the Church, to be one as He and the Father are one. So the Church must somehow be one. After all, Jesus, being God, must have had His prayer answered.

eringobrough---One church in "one body of Christ", not "THE CHURCH". Sorry, I firmly believe that the anglican church would be getting into bed with the enemy. It's not a misreading of scripture, but an accurate reading of scriptureand an an accurate account of Rome's history.
The enemy of what? Why don't you consider that the Church is the body of Christ? How many spin-off, protestant denominations have already broken up the body?! I for one am glad to see more unification of Christians.
