Thank you to those who sent messages of support ahead of our meeting last evening. It was a very beneficial meeting and a whole range of issues were discussed. We were pleased to have representatives with expertise and knowledge in a number of areas: a seminarian, a priest able to advise on implications of canon law both Anglican and Roman Catholic, and two FSSP priests from Reading, Fr de Malleray and Fr Leworthy who were able to share their own experiences of being a part of the Fraternity of S. Peter, Church sharing and self-financing.
I was greatly encouraged by the thoughtful questions which were raised, and the courage which many people are displaying. There is much still to consider not least to do with buildings and financial structures. Much of this is in the hands of various hierarchies and we wait to hear further news from both the Roman Catholic and Anglican hierarchies as to how churches intending to take the leap into the ordinariate may proceed. In the meantime we continue to pray for guidance by the Holy Spirit...
