Anglicans becoming Catholics

Damian Thompson reports on the former assistant bishop of Newcastle, Paul Richardson, who has been received into the Catholic Church. He says “I’m very happy just being an ordinary Catholic,” attending Mass at St George's Cathedral, Southwark, with no fixed ideas about applying for ordination as a Catholic priest or joining any proposed Ordinariate. This seems, to me, an exemplary way of becoming a Catholic.

Yet the Ordinariate possibility is there for those who might wish to avail of it, and it seems that things are moving in Australia where Forward in Faith Austrlia has voted to see how things might proceed. (Daily Telegraph, Damian Thompson).
