The Rt. Rev'd Daniel Herzog, retired Bishop of Albany, has swum the Tiber. This will make a big noise. My knowledge of +Dan is, although orthodox in most ways, he is (or at least used to be) a strong advocate for the ordination of women. That he should ditch ECUSA comes as no surprise (the time is coming when we will be more surprised by those who actually remain) but that he should flee to Rome, where they have rather different ideas about women in the priesthood, is a bit of a head scratcher. Assuming he has recanted his error, however, I should think Rome will welcome him.
