the anglicans

The big bloggers are talking excitedly about the possibilty of a bunch of Anglicans coming over to Catholicism. My reaction is a shrug and a raised eyebrow. I hope the Vatican will be very, very cautious about this. How many of these people are converting becuase they realize that Catholicism is the one, true Faith or are they threatening to covert just to spite the liberal Anglicans? What will the Church do with a bunch of married priests, and bishops? Will they go to seminary for remedial training or will they just be set loose on a parish? How this whole thing will play out and whether they will be real Catholics is up in the air. I just can't get excited about it.
