We apologise unreservedly for the inexplicable editorial confusion which resulted in a picture of Anglican bishop Philip North being captioned: ‘Pope Francis celebrating Mass in the Lateran Basilica.’ (see Cri-de-Coeur below)

The  accompanying text might well have been taken to indicate that Bishop Philip is as unenthusiastic about women’s ministry as the Holy Father. We have been asked by the Church of England communications office to point out that this is not the case.

To avoid further embarrassment to the new Bishop of Sheffield they have kindly sent the photograph below.
