CWN Editor's Note: Rev. Gavin Ashenden, a former chaplain to Queen Elizabeth, will be received into the Catholic Church next Sunday. He had left the Church of England in 2017, after criticizing the reading of the Qu’ran at an Episcopalian service. He explained: “I came to realise (too long after both Newman and Chesterton had already explained why) that only the Catholic Church, with the weight of the Magisterium, had the ecclesial integrity, theological maturity and spiritual potency to defend the Faith, renew society and save souls in the fullness of faith.”
