The Date Has Been Set- Anglo Catholic Ordinariate Will Be Established Jan 1 2012

This is one of the major news items from the big Bishop's meeting that came out yesterday. The date has finally been set. On 1 January 2012 the Ordinariate for Anglo Catholics will be established. Huge day.

Rocco has In the New Year, a New Ordinariate

Reading between the lines at Cardinal Wuerls report to the Bishops and later press conference one gets the strong sense that the Ordinary of the new Ordinariate will be a married former Anglican Priest that has been a Catholic Priest for some time. Thus he will be not be able to be a Bishop but beside ordaining will have most of the powers of a Bishop. Including voting rights in the Bishop's conference. I have a strong idea of the top 3 or 4 names of who that might be.

Anglican Patrimony has some more detail here an fleshes out Cardinal Wuerl's remarks at Wuerling Out the Ordinariate!
