Where's Henry VIII? England Is Turning Catholic Again

CINCINNATI (TDB) -- The sun has set on the British Empire, and now there are reports that the Roman Catholic Church Church is about to become the pre-eminent faith in England and Wales, a development that surely would set King Henry VIII's head spinning.

Henry, 1491-1547, broke away from Rome during the Reformation and launched the Protestant sect that became the Church of England. But the old state religion is sliding into No. 2 on Henry's island realm. The Times of London has the story about Catholicism's comeback, which is largely fueled by immigration to Shakespeare's precious stone set in the silver sea.
