The Anglican Rite of the Roman Catholic Church

Recently, the Pope has announced he will be establishing Personal Ordinariates, which will allow former Anglicans to enter full communion with the Catholic Church while preserving elements of the distinctive Anglican spiritual and liturgical patrimony.

This provides one alternative for Episcopalians concerned that the current Episcopal Church is effectively making a religion out of political correctness.

However, consider the following points:
  • We have not read the fine print.
  • Conservatives have their own form of PC, which they can also worship.
  • The Eastern Orthodox Church has already done something like this.
  • The Old Catholic Church of Utrecht is, like the Anglican Communion, a church that has split off from Roman Catholicism but which maintains the Apostolic Succession.
