New Pope is Friend to Anglicans - by Bishop Keith Ackerman

Beloved in Christ,

As President of Forward In Faith, North America, I am certain that I speak for countless Orthodox Anglicans worldwide who rejoice in the election of Pope Benedict XVI as Bishop of Rome, Supreme Pontiff, "Servant of the Servants of God," and "Patriarch of the West."

As a Cardinal, Pope Benedict has been a friend to Anglicans worldwide, and in particular has graciously offered hospitality to us in our Ecumenical Dialogue.

Pope Benedict has also extended his friendship to Orthodox Episcopalians in the United States more recently sending official greetings to the Anglican Communion Network organizational meeting in Plano, Texas in 2003.

Forward In Faith pledges its support to this valiant champion of Orthodoxy, with a promise of regular prayer as we seek to find greater ways in which orthodox Christians worldwide might be able to offer mutual love, respect, and support.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

The Rt. Rev'd Keith L. Ackerman. SSC
