Sky on the Ordinariate
Gloria TV carries this Sky News report on the Ordinariate. It highlights the difficulty of many Anglicans in leaving the C of E, and stresses the view of many Anglicans who intend to leave that there decision is based on a hope for unity which was shattered, first by the ordination of women to the priesthood and now by the imposition of women bishops.
The few Anglicans I know who intend to join the Ordinariate were all intensely involved in ecumenism, they had a vision that somehow the Anglican Church was part of the Catholic Church, that one day the Thames would flow into the Tiber and that their part of Anglicanism would eventually achieve full communion with the Universal Church.
