At the USCCB meeting, Card. Wuerl announced that on 1 January the Ordinariate for Anglicans will begin.
The bishops asked many questions about this Ordinariate.
One of the questions/issues raised concerned the “availability” of former Anglicans ordained as Catholic priests.
As I understand it, this is a concern for some former Anglicans. Because – at first at least – there are going to be more Anglican Ordinariate priests than places for them to serve, it seems that some Catholic bishops are – what’s the word – eager? to put them to work… as Roman Catholic priests, and not with former Anglicans.
If I understand things properly, this is a bit of a concern in England, though I am not well-informed about that.
There are going to by many points to sort out as the time draws near.
