Lambeth and all that jazz

The daily thought on the Taize website today made me think of the Lambeth conference as well as the Church of England's own issue with the consecration of women as bishops:

'In the middle of the twentieth century, there appeared a man named John, born in a humble peasant family in the north of Italy. When he announced the Second Vatican Council, that elderly man, John XXIII, pronounced words that are among the most crystal clear imaginable:

We will not try to find out who was wrong, we will not try to find out who was right, we will only say: Let us be reconciled!” (Discourse to the Pastors of Rome, February 1959)'
