There will be an interesting article in the UK’s best Catholic weekly, the Catholic Herald about the big influx of Anglicans who are expected to join the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham in the Diocese of Brentwood alone.
Brentwood Diocese includes East London and Essex.
David V Barrett reports for the Catholic Herald that some 300 people, some parishes, could be coming soon and many in already taking instruction.
I am happily looking at my digital complete copy of this week’s print edition of the paper… which you can obtain at a big discount right now (a “tenner” for a year’s subscription… about $16). You will even get an email telling you when a new edition is available so you don’t forget to look at it.
What is interesting about look at this story in the digital edition, is that you can seen immediately beneath the article about Anglicans and Brentwood, that “A prominent Anglican clergyman said in a speech at Westminster Cathedral last week that the ordination of women is God’s will.”
He did this in the context of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.
Benedict XVI is the Pope of Christian Unity!
