We have probably re-hashed to death the reasons by members of the Traditional Anglican Communion might refuse to join the Catholic Church: papal infallibility, teachings on Mary, branch ecclesiology are among the doctrinal points of contention that turned up.
The Anglican Church in North America is probably going to be the largest potential constituency for Ordinariate growth and we have already seen some significant intake of former ACNA priests from the United States into the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter.
Bishops from several Continuing Anglican jurisdictions recently wrote ACNA Bishop Duncan, pointing out the fault lines over women’s ordination that already exist in that body and exhorting ACNA to come more in line with the Continuing Anglican position.
So, New Year predictions: do you think more ACNA folks will join Ordinariates? Or do you foresee a move of the Holy Spirit uniting Continuing Anglican bodies that will prove persuasive to ACNA to join forces with them? Or will ACNA be recognized as an Anglican province in North America and remain part of the Canterbury Communion?
