Kaspar on the Ordinariates

Sandro Magister presents an interview with Cardinal Kaspar on the Anglican Ordinariates, revealing among other things Dr Williams telephoning him in the middle of the night. This was published in L'Osservatore a few days ago.

On Thursday Dr Williams flies to Rome for a longstanding meeting and will meet the Holy Father.
