Pope prays for end to rifts in the Anglican Church

Associated Press reported today that the Pope said today that he is praying there will not be any more rifts in the Anglican community following the recent Church of England decision on women bishops.

"Answering questions from journalists aboard his flight to Australia, Benedict touched briefly on the turmoil in the Anglican church.

"I am praying so that there are no more schisms and fractures" within the Anglican community, Benedict said.

Benedict said he did not want to "interfere" in the debate."
