Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, head of Great Britain’s Anglican Church and symbolic head of the Anglican Communion worldwide, said yesterday of Pope Benedict XVI’s creation of a new global institution to receive defecting Anglicans and Episcopalians into the Roman Catholic Church:

I do not think this constitution will be seen as in any sense a commentary on Anglican problems offered by the Vatican. It is a response to this range of requests and inquiries from a very broad variety of people, either Anglican or of Anglican heritage. In that sense it has no negative impact on the relations of the communion as a whole to the Roman Catholic church as a whole. It is not an act of aggression, it is not a statement of no confidence. It is business as usual.
