Here Come More Anglicans: Up to 100 priests + 2,000 Laypeople in U.S.

More news from the USCCB confab in Washington state:

As many as 100 U.S. Anglican priests and 2,000 laypeople could be the first members of a U.S. personal ordinariate for former Anglicans who want to enter into full communion with the Catholic Church, Cardinal Donald W. Wuerl of Washington reported to his fellow bishops June 15.

Cardinal Wuerl was appointed by the Vatican last September to guide the incorporation of Anglican groups into the Catholic Church in the United States under “Anglicanorum coetibus,” an apostolic constitution issued by Pope Benedict XVI in November 2009.

At a news conference following his report, Cardinal Wuerl said he “wouldn’t be surprised” if the Vatican were to establish the U.S. ordinariate by the end of the year. “I think it will be sooner rather than later,” he said.

There is something to be said for presentation. I notice a lot of people on this website are incredibly rude and sometimes hostile to FReepers of other denominational persuasions.

The Catholics do that to the protestants. The protestants do it to the Catholics.

It’s an age old story, one that will likely not end for quite some time. But that doesn’t make it any less annoying.

I am hostile to the heresy of Protestantism, as I must. It might be seen as personal, but I have no control of how others imagine my disposition to be.
