I know this is a new word, but I use it for the re-ordination which is being imposed on priests of the Anglican Church who have decided they want to be Roman Catholics, but say they want to keep their Anglican liturgical heritage.
I have never heard such nonsense in my life. (Oh well, I suppose I have, when I heard President Nixon’s resignation speech). Many of these guys have never used an Anglican Liturgy in their life, and those who have, did it under compulsion, or because the Bishop was visiting.
The Church of England received 14 Roman Catholic priests last year, according to a Parliamentary report, but there was no triumphalism by the C of E. Compare this with the trumpet-blowing by those who have joined the RC Church by what has been called the back-door of the Ordinariate.
I wish all Anglican priests who have chosen this sort of Uniate Church well, and pray for their future RC/Anglican ministry. It won’t be easy.
