It seems to me that like the Prodigal Son we should be shouting for joy for every single returning Anglican. I am still going through the RCIA (Prior Lutheran) and fully understand that RCIA will not be necessary for Anglicans coming into the Church as a result of the Popes offer.
In the end, at least for me, I think the "Catholic" and the catholic church both will be stronger because of this reunification.
