We have had a spate of exciting news these past two weeks. So much good news that I have noticed a certain pattern forming. That pattern usually comes in threes, so I’d like to introduce the Rule of Three theory. The Rule of Three is a theorem that states good news comes in threes.
First we have Pope Benedict XVI having the excommunications on the Society of St. Pius X (S.S.P.X.) lifted on January 21. Then we have rumors that the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith (C.D.F.) possibly offering the Traditional Anglican Communion (T.A.C.) entry into the Catholic Church on January 29. So there needs to be a third piece of good news percolating somewhere some would think?
My best guess at this point is that the newly elected Patriarch, Metropolitan Kirill, of the Russian Orthodox Church will announce the stunning news that he will be inviting His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI to visit him in Moscow. Thus removing a major stumbling block to Union between the Catholic Church and the Russian Orthodox Church, and possibly all of Orthodoxy!
Just to remind the readers of this website, this is purely speculation on my part and based on no insider information.
Though this would be wonderful news if it were!
