I was remiss in not posting about this before, but the lovely and persistent Anna Arco of The Catholic Herald posted that the Anglican Bishop of London, … well.. here it is…
The Anglican bishop of Fulham and the chairman of Forward in Faith International has announced he will resign before the end of the year to join an Ordinariate.
Speaking at Forward in Faith’s National Assembly today, Bishop John Broadhurst, who is a senior figure in the Anglo-Catholic movement, said he intended to tender his resignation before the end of the year and join the Ordinariate in Britain when it is established. He has said that he will remain the chairman of Forward in Faith, which he says is not an Anglican organisation.
Bishop Broadhurst is a suffragan bishop of the Diocese of London. He said the Bishop of London would likely appoint someone new to fill the post Bishop Broadhurst is vacating.
He is the first senior Anglo-Catholic to announce publicly that he will join an Ordinariate when it is founded.
Pope Benedict is the Pope of Christian Unity.
In the meantime, many disgruntled Catholics are on pins and needles waiting for the Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams to issue the long-expected Romanorum coetibus, which will give a safe-haven to liberals who want to keep their large puppets and pottery, 60′s music and the ordination of women, prayer to the earthmothergoddess… all without the spirit-repressing domination of masculine Rome!
“But Father! But Father!”, you might be saying with furrowed brow. “Who, pray tell, should go over to them? Do you have anyone in mind?”
Since I am in Detroit at the time of this writing, I suggest all the Call To Action types and those associated liberal confab Archbp. Vigneron warned against the other day… and all their speakers… should just go. The folks who are determined to poison reception of the new translation should think over carefully which Church they truly desire to belong to. 99% of the writers of the NCR. There is hope for some of them, however. Nearly all the members of the LCWR and CHA could join the wymynpryst types who should immediately get out. Remember girls! There is a safe haven for all of you! It’s such a small step. Since I am on it… the dissidents fighting against Archbp. Nienstedt in St. Paul and Minneapolis and against all the Minnesota bishops who are sticking up for true marriage, according to God’s will revealed in nature and in revelation. Hasta la vista.
This is not an invitation for you to add your own names. I am ranting.
See what a few hours in Detroit has done to me already? I am all worked up! Back to the situation in England…
