Anglican group votes to accept Pope's invitation

The English members of the Traditional Anglican Communion (TAC) have voted to accept Pope Benedict's invitation to enter the Catholic Church. At a meeting last week, English members of the group approved a resolution thanking the Pope for his forthcoming apostolic constitution and asked TAC leaders "to take the steps necessary to implement this constitution." The group also recommended Bishop Robert Mercer as a candidate to head a personal ordinariate for Anglicans.

Although the TAC has relatively few members in Great Britain, the worldwide body-- which boasts a membership of 400,000-- has been active in discussions with Vatican officials about the prospect of corporate reunion.
