As is being reported by multiple sources
, Mr. Tony Blair, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, has swam the Tiber and has formally entered full communion with the Catholic Church.
Blair, formerly a member of the Church of England, had been corrected by the Catholic Cardinal for receiving Catholic communion with his family, who are Catholic and regular Mass participants. There has been much speculation that Mr. Blair would become Catholic after leaving office, fueled a great deal when a formal visit to the Holy Father was one of his final acts as Prime Minister. While he was not prohibited by law to be Catholic while Prime Minister (unlike King or Queen of England), converting to Catholicism was an issue his office did not wish to tackle.
Welcome Home, Tony!
