Fr. Andrew Cole, a priest of the Diocese of Menevia, living in the Pontifical Beda College, Rome, and studying for a doctorate in canon law at the Pontifical Gregorian University, examines the Apostolic Constitution Anglicanorum Coetibus.
I have yet to see an analysis that seems to harmonize with Archbishop Hepworth's statement at the recent FiF UK National Assembly that
Lay people will come into this Anglican body in communion with the Holy See in a simple process that is to be done within their community — not individually — within their community.
At the moment, it remains unclear how congregations will be received, but it is clear from the Archbishop's statement that he expects an innovative solution that is fundamentally corporate (as opposed to individually-professed statements of faith and the reception of the Sacraments of Initiation).
Cross-referencing the Apostolic Constitution and the Complementary Norms will only get one so far. There are many aspects of Anglicanorum Coetibus that are truly innovative and for which there are no precedents.
Fr. Cole suggests that ordination of Anglican ministers sub conditione will still be permissible in cases of "prudent doubt" (CIC 845, §2). The commentary of Fr. Gianfranco Ghirlanda, S.J (released simultaneously with the Apostolic Constitution and Complementary Norms) did not mention this possibility.
The good canonist's analysis doesn't bring much new information to the party, but it is posted here for the record.
For reference, the audio of the TAC Primate's talk to FiF UK can be found here.
