    This is so exciting! I expect to see hundreds of exasperated Catholics joining the Anglican Use parishioners for worship that is reverent and sound. As when the FSSP came into the diocese, this should have a chilling effect on the heresy and outright nuttiness that flourishes in Catholic parishes. Welcome home.
