Having a waffle on R4

Top stuff. Incisive, rigorously argued points following a close reading of the available texts on the Ordinariate and attendance at the recent ordinations at Westminster Cathedral. Mm, well no, just a few, 'I'm rather perplexed and not sure how this is all going to pan out,' coupled with a very luke warm welcome from that lady from Roehampton this morning.

Personally, I think everyone I know could have spoken on a range of subjects from the chickens in their back garden to their favourite James Bond film, via the roadworks in Sidcup, in a way that would have held an audience's attention more.

Still, now she's given her imprimatur to moaning on about the Ordinariate, that only served to prove that being welcoming and enthusiastic about it is the way to go. Oh, and the fact that the Pope wants it to happen.

Thanks for the steer.

PS A transcript appears here on The Ordinariate Portal. What most struck me as I listened, aside from the boredom, was how this sounds if you are an Anglican thinking about joining The Ordinariate. The liberal media are after you, QED, time to join.
