The group of us who are gathered here have all made our own way from various denominational backgrounds through the Anglican Church to be ordained as Catholic priests. Naturally, the place is buzzing with excitement and interest over the Apostolic Constitution. Copies are printed out for us and we'll be going over it together in detail. Over the next few days I will be interviewing some of my colleagues, and hope you will enjoy learning about their various conversion stories and their paths to ordination. I also hope to interview Mgr. Stetson--the priest who oversees the pastoral provision.
We began with a celebration of Mass together and none of us missed the fact that on this day when the Apostolic Constitution was published was also the Feast of the foundation of St John Lateran. The great church in Rome which is the Pope's cathedral and the location of his teaching authority. It is this authority which has brought all 'home to Rome'.
So be sure to keep checking his blog Standing on My Head for more reflections on the new Apostolic Constitution.
