William Oddie on the future for Anglo-Catholics

Readers of this blog may be interested in this article by Dr William Oddie, former editor of the Catholic Herald - and no, not the ornothologist, which debates the future of Anglo-Catholics. I found it very helpful. Dr Oddie is picture above with a certain former Vicar of the parish at the 125th anniversary of Pusey House, Oxford.
You may not have noticed it (I had hardly noticed it myself) but the C of E (having with deliberation decided not to make any “special provision” for those opposed to women bishops) is currently mounting a last-minute attempt to undermine the Ordinariate for Catholic Anglicans which is expected to be erected in the New Year. This scheme (which I have absolutely no doubt has the discreet backing of the Archbishop of Canterbury) would be laughable if there were not a real possibility that it might persuade some Catholic Anglicans who are seriously considering coming into communion with the Bishop of Rome to stay where they are. They should be warned: have nothing to do with this scheme. It seems to me to be dishonest, deceitful and both morally and intellectually bankrupt.
Click here to read the rest of the article in full and do take time to read through the comments attached to it.
