BreakingNews from Eye of the Tiber

Sources in the Vatican are now confirming that Pope Francis has agreed to posthumously grant King Henry VIII an annulment from Catherine of Aragon. Numerous reports have come out in the past couple of days about the possibility of such a move, with aides close to Queen Elizabeth telling EOTT that such a decision on the Vatican’s part would essentially end the centuries old schism.
Media outlets in England are also reporting that once the annulment takes effect, that Queen Elizabeth will relinquish her claim as “Defender of the Faith and Supreme Governor of the Church of England.”
(I kinda like the idea of ol' Lizzie being a member of the one, holy catholic and apostolic, ya know?) 

When asked to comment Thomas More and John Fisher did not return calls.
