First Anglicans are received into the Roman Catholic Church in historic service

Priests and worshippers from around 20 Church of England parishes converted to Catholicism on Saturday at a ceremony in Westminster Cathedral.

Three former bishops were among those confirmed at the service, which saw the first wave of Anglicans defecting to Rome to join the Ordinariate.

The Pope introduced the structure in 2009 to welcome disillusioned Anglicans into the Catholic fold after secret meetings were held at the Vatican with Church of England bishops, as The Sunday Telegraph revealed a year earlier.


Editor’s note: Some 500 years after King Henry VIII, this totally unprecedented, bold, creative move by Pope Benedict has now proved more effective than over 40 years of false, one-sided, post-Vatican II ecumenism. We haven’t seen something like this since the Berlin Wall came down, under Pope John Paul II … another surprising move that was shortly followed by the end of the Soviet Union.

Review the timeline and pertinent details of the original break with Rome.

  1. Doug, greetings from New Zealand…Time line for the reformation in the UK…1536..May 17th Cranmer divorced Henry and Anne, but two days earlier on May 15th Anne had been condemned to death, and on the 19th May Anne was executed….on the 15th she is condemned as the wife the King, on the 17th she is pronounced never to have been the King’s wife,and on the 19th she is executed for being his unfaithful wife! Truly people in high place, if they fear not God, can do and say what they like. Taken from the book ‘The Great Conspiracy” by Deirdre Manifold , first published in 1982 ….well worth a read! regards Trevor Collins.
