In the UK’s best Catholic weekly, The Catholic Herald, we pick up on comments by Card. Wuerl of Washington DC that soon in the USA some form of the Ordinariate foreseen in Anglicanorum coetibus will be established.
Here is a bit of the article with my emphases.
An ordinariate is close to being established in America, Cardinal Donald Wuerl said during his visit to Scotland last week.
As Vatican delegate for the US ordinariate Cardinal Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington, said he had been watching developments in Britain with great interest and was confident that the establishment of the US ordinariate was imminent this autumn.
The cardinal also said that discussions with the Episcopal Church had included plans for the transfer of property.
He was speaking before he received a US Episcopalian parish into the Catholic Church yesterday in anticipation of the ordinariate being established there.
The cardinal was visiting Stirling to address the National Conference of Priests and Permanent Deacons of Scotland.
He told the Scottish Catholic Observer:?“I am hoping that it will happen in this calendar year that an ordinariate will be announced.”
“There will be a time lag between the Holy See announcing that it intends to establish an ordinariate and the actual date of its implementation but I am still hopeful that before this year is out an US ordinariate will be established,” he said.
“We are moving forward with the examination of the cases of at least 100 clergy and several thousand Anglicans who want to come into the Catholic Church as groups. In two weeks’ time I will be receiving an entire parish into the Church and confirming around 120 people. This is being done in anticipation of the ordinariate.”
He went on to talk about some other issues, which you can read about over there.
