Notable Quotable: John R. Allen on How Many Anglicans Might Go To Rome

John Allen is Vatican reporter for the National Catholic Reporter. This quote comes from a panel discussion aired yesterday on Religion and Ethics Newsweekly:

"ALLEN: Well, the signals from the Catholic side, at least, is that expectations are this is going to be a fairly small number of folks. When Cardinal Levada was asked this question at a Vatican briefing earlier in the week, he said that there were 20 or 30 Anglican bishops in various parts of the world who had put out feelers, but of course putting out feelers is different than signing on the bottom line. And at the grassroots the expectation is that at least in the early stages you’re talking about fairly small pockets of people who will be coming over."
