Pour yourself a hot beverage and prepare yourself to watch a great interview by Fr. Thomas Rosica of Canada’s Salt and Light TV of Bishop Steven Lopes of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter.  Proud to say he is my bishop!

    I second the motion. This interview is fantastic!

    There are a couple very significant take-away points. Here’s what stood out to me.

    >> 1. During the interview, the bishop stated that the present canonical membership of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter is about eight thousand (8,000). I think that this is much larger than the “guestimates” previously put forth by our resident naysayers based upon previous information. This is larger than or comparable to the size of several of the sui juris ritual churches.

    >> 2. The bishop’s discussion of ecumenical implications of the ordinariates is fully consistent with what we have said on this blog in the past. His remarks about different expressions of the same faith are particularly cogent as the way forward for reconciliation of Protestant bodies as well as of those who remain in the Anglican Communion and in various “continuing Anglican” bodies.

    >> 3. The bishop’s answer to the question about how the transition to his present position and the celebration of the liturgy using the Divine Worship liturgical books had affected him personally was particularly enlightening. It shows him to be human and willing to learn.

    Overall, a great interview!

    Norm.
