London. Message from the Pope to the new head of the Anglican Church

Pope John-Paul II sent a message to the new Anglican "Archbishop" of Canterbury on 28th February 2003, via his intermediary Cardinal Walter Kasper, president of the Pontifical Council for the Laity. Rowan Douglas Williams, who succeeds "Archbishop" George Leonard Carey, had been officially enthroned the day before.

"In spite of some disagreements and obstacles, we are still on the right path and irrevocably committed to it," wrote the Pope in his message.
While the Vatican exercises diplomatic complacency, conservative Anglicans have protested against the nomination of Rowan Williams because of his position on the "ordination" of women and on homosexuality. It would seem there is more common sense among conservative Anglicans than there is at the Vatican.
