Habemus Papam!

New Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby
Well, not quite! But I'm sure you know what I'm getting at (after all, the Coptic Church just announced their new Pope ... ).

You can find the announcement on the Archbishop of Canterbury's website here.
Some media reaction to the news here and here.
And his Wikipedia (the font of all wisdom!) page is here.

Hmmn. If what Wikipedia says is right that his 'theology is reported as representing the evangelical tradition within Anglicanism' he may not thank me for that 'Habemus Papam' remark. Oh well. I never had any illusions about being a candidate for preferment to high ecclesiastical office in any case. And I'm sure I'm not alone in that thought!
