Last evening, it was confirmed, that former British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, officially converted to the Roman Catholic faith.
It has been well known that his wife, Cherie, was a devout Catholic and that his children have been raised in the church's teachings.
“It can be confirmed that Tony Blair has been received into full communion with the Catholic church by Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor,” the head of the church in England and Wales, the church said in a statement.
“For a long time he's been a regular worshipper at Mass with his family and in recent months he's been following a program of formation for his reception into full communion. Our prayers are with him, his family and his wife at this joyful moment in their journey of faith together,” Cardinal Murphy-O'Connor said.
As such, I bid an immense welcome and a very Merry Christmas to Tony Blair...
