English Catholics may see Anglican ordinariates in new light

Catholic World News - October 04, 2010

In editorial in England’s Catholic Herald says that in the wake of Pope Benedict’s visit, the prospect of Anglican-Catholic ordinariates can be seen in a more positive light. Whereas one these new ecclesiastical structures were seen as a refuge for disgruntled Anglicans, the paper suggests, now they can be properly understood as a way to enhance the evangelizing mission of the Church: "Future members of the Ordinariate are offering to help revitalise the Christian mission of the Catholic Church in England and several other countries."

Since the Herald editorial essentially confirms what Pope Benedict explained in Anglicanorum Coetibus, the fact that this perspective is considered "new" testifies to the lingering suspicions of the Pope's move within the English Catholic Church.
