Even though I've been accused of being a bit negative lately by the "shoot the messenger" crowd, I did want to share the fact that tomorrow or Tuesday at the latest, The Anglo-Catholic will be able to report on joyous news concerning the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter and one of the most faithful of Anglican Catholic communities.
I'd also like to take a moment, as Moderator, to moderate. Our readers need to understand that not every post is a matter of life and death, nor is every criticism un-Cathollc, disloyal, or simply a carrying over of Anglican fractiousness into the Catholic Church. Everyone take a deep breath and slowly exhale. Sometimes we have good news; sometimes we have bad or concerning news. The Ordinariates and the Catholic Church, just like life itself, have their ups and downs. What you can count on here at The Anglo-Catholic is honest reporting in our posts, and in the combox, at the very least, informed speculation from our distinguished Contributors. Not everything is going to make you happy, but neither are we here to make you feel bad. This blog has hung in there for nearly three years now and has always had the best of intentions toward the Ordinariates (before they even existed) and the Anglican communities which have chosen to avail themselves of the Holy Father's most generous invitation to Catholic Unity. If you can not appreciate this, you are in the wrong place.
