The Beginning

"The Ordinariate is launched very quietly and gently, slipping almost unnoticed into the water." - Fr. Seán Finnegan

Bishops Andrew Burnham, Keith Newton and John Broadhurst were received into the Catholic Church this morning. Now we await the reception of three more bishops and the formal, official, announcement of the erection of the English Ordinariate. Then we await the erection of the others around the world. 2011 will be a good year. Not an easy one, but a good one.

Update: Here is a personal account with some photos.

Te Deum Laudamus!
