It’s a great pity that Archbishop Justin isn’t to attend the papal inauguration. Granted it’s two days before his own, but it seems to me that this is a very special occasion, perhaps more so than any recent papal accession; the Ecumenical Patriarch is to be there, and Pope Francis seems to appreciate Anglicanism’s contribution to the world church. I do hope that Archbishop John, (York) will wear a clerical collar, despite his “vow” when he is at the service. He will be there on behalf of us all. A papal inauguration is no place for personal statements.
