The print edition of the UK’s best Catholic weekly, the Catholic Herald, has an item by the loverly and persistent Anna Arco about four more Anglican priests resigning their positions in order to join the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham.
Four Anglican clergymen from Kent, Sussex and Derbyshire will by coming over.
More men are expected to join the Ordinariate.
Meanwhile, last week Bishop Cripian Hollis of Portsmouth ordained as a deacon the emeritus Anglican bishop of Richborough, Edwin Barnes. He will soon be ordained to the priesthood. Also, the former Anglican bishop of Ballarat, David Silk, was ordained a deacon on Tuesday. I believe today, Friday, is the date of his ordination to the priesthood.
This is picking up speed.
Benedict XVI is the Pope of Christian Unity. Pray for him. Pray for the men who are taking the huge step of leaving their comfortable positions and stepping into the unknown.
