Anglicanorum Coetibus -- Encouraging Responses

There have been several very encouraging responses to the Holy Father's overture to Catholic-minded Anglicans. A few recent ones:

In the United States: Bishops in the Traditional Anglican Communion's American branch voted to accept Pope Benedict's invitation.

In Canada: The bishops of the Anglican Catholic Church of Canada request an Ordinariate from Rome.

In England: The Bishop of Ebbsfleet appears ready for the Ordinariate. The text of the link is from the blog of the chairman of the Latin Mass Society.

In Scotland:
Serious discussions in hand.

Most of these links are from the very useful "Anglican Use News" blog. Many thanks to Steve Cavanaugh for the maintaining it.
