Vatican spokesman: ordinariate for Anglicans ‘something new and beautiful’
Catholic World News - January 24, 2011
Father Federico Lombardi, the director of the Holy See Press Office, said recently that the new Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham is not “a sign of division, but a small bridge on the long road to unity. It seems to us that there is truly something new and beautiful.” Quoting Pope Benedict, he referred to the ordinariate as “a prophetic gesture that can contribute positively to the developing relations between Anglicans and Catholics. It helps us to set our sights on the ultimate goal of all ecumenical activity: the restoration of full ecclesial communion.”
