Our new beatus, Fr. John Sullivan SJ, was apparently a "half-Protestant, half-Catholic" because he converted from the Church of Ireland. (The Church of Ireland is our branch of Anglicanism, or Episcopalianism in America.)
The Irish Times seize on this phrase from the postulator of his cause (sadly, all-too-typical of a modern-day Jesuit), and spins a whole narrative from it.
It suggests that this beatification is only possible because of the arrival of Pope Francis. Forgetting that Pope Benedict beatified John Henry Newman, the most famous Anglican convert of them all.
A truly cheap shot.
