English writer warns against Anglican effort to dissuade others from joining Catholic ordinariate

Catholic World News - October 25, 2010

William Oddie of the Catholic Herald-- himself a former Anglican—warns against efforts by the Church of England to dissuade conservative Anglicans from entering an ordinariate in the Catholic Church.

A group called the Society of St. Wilfrid and St. Hilda has gained the backing of 10 Anglican bishops for a special outreach to those who might be tempted to join a new ordinariate. Oddie charges that a new effort is “dishonest, deceitful, and both morally and intellectually bankrupt.”
