Thanks Joanna,

Im trying to find the words to describe how I felt reading this entry.

Best I can come up with is a birth. And as with any birth, there will be labor pains. But a sense of joy, tears and trepidation.

The new ordinariate will be in my prayers, as all of you will.

Dear Joanna,

You are so right in your comments. The Ordinariate will take time to grow, over years probably and there will be set backs. But it will grow. Once the first Ordinariate groups have become established, other interested groups will follow. It is important that the first groups are an example of what can be achived. When this is seen by others, they too will want to join the Catholic church.

The Holy Father on his visit last year spoke of the secularisation of society and how bad this was. The Ordinariate will lead to greater Christian unity and help promote Christian values within our society.

The Ordinariate will show the things that unite Catholics and Anglicans. It will lead to history being made and best of all, it is history that we can make ourselves for the Christian good of this country.

Best wishes and prayers,

Henry Ledger.
