CFR's and Capuchins to merge?


Recently on EWTN Fr. Benedict Groeschel alluded to a possible merger between the CFR’s and the Capuchins - as in a reunification. I almost choked on the cookie I was eating! Does anyone have any idea about this?


I’m curious about this as well. I understand that Fr. Groeschel originally didn’t want to separate from the NY province, but felt it was necessary at the time. Ut unum sint!
