One thought on “The Borgias and the Reformation”

  1. Greg says:

    My friend recently received a letter from the Vatican. He is a former Episcopal priest, now Catholic (I was honored to be his godfather!), and had written Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI expressing gratitude to Benedict for his generous gesture to Anglicans offering them—and my friend, especially—the opportunity to come home but still enjoy Anglican liturgy.

    (We use what is often referred to as the ‘Cranmer Mass’—who’d’a thunk? :>)

    The Pope Emeritus had received his letter and thanked him in return. The letter, on behalf of the Pope, was signed by a “Borgia.”

    We both got a good laugh.
