Long-time participant HE alerted me to the following from the site of the SSPX.
They are happy about the reception of so many former Anglicans entering into the Roman obedience.
As you know, Anglicans are able to enter full union with the Successor of Peter and also retain their English Anglican traditions and practices.
My emphases and comments:
900 Anglicans become Catholic at Easter
While celebrating the Paschal season’s glad tidings of joy, it is appropriate that we relay the good news of 900 Anglicans converting to Catholicism on Easter, a traditional time when converts are received into the Church. This encouraging number is all the more so when we consider that it included 61 former Anglican ministers. [Note, they didn’t write “priests and bishops”. The Anglican Ordinariate was formed after its future leadership adhered to the teaching of the Catholic Church expressed in the Catechism of the Catholic Church.]
Despite some reservations about the apostolic constitution Anglicanorum Coetibus and the personal ordinariate that has been erected for such converts from Anglicanism, [See my comment, above.] nonetheless we genuinely rejoice to hear of their recent conversion and sincerely welcome them as new members of the Mystical Body of Christ. May they unceasingly turn to their ordinariate’s patroness, Our Lady of Walsingham, for assistance in the restoration of the Faith of their Catholic ancestors, whose fervent devotion to the Blessed Mary Ever Virgin once caused their country to be called, Our Lady’s Dowry. [Do I hear an “Amen!”? C’mon! A loud “AMEN!”?]
We also pray for all of this year’s Easter converts that they will persevere in the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, and thereby earn the eternal reward of the beatific vision of Our Risen Lord. [“AMEN!”]
I would love to see someday a statement put out by the Anglican Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham rejoice over the reconciliation of the SSPX.
Perhaps one day soon will will see an Ordinariate (or something) for the SSPX which would make it possible to have manifestly full Communion with the Successor of Peter and also be able to preserve our Roman Catholic traditions and practices.
