Vatican releases Apostolic Constitution to welcome former Anglicans

[Episcopal News Service] The text of an Apostolic Constitution, that outlines provisions to accept groups of former Anglicans who wish to enter into full communion with the Roman Catholic Church, was released Nov. 9 by the Vatican.

The full text of Apostolic Constitution Anglicanorum Coetibus is available on the Vatican website here.

An earlier ENS article, "Vatican proposal to welcome former Anglicans generates mixed reactions, commentary," is available here. An Opinion column by Bill Franklin, "Vatican Apostolic Constitution explained," is available here.

But I thought I was catholic already but not under a human supreme leader, but under Christ the King?

I find this distasteful. Wonder if any Anglicans have gone in the RC direction?
