Festina lente with the Ordinariates

The proposed Anglican Ordinariates are finally starting to see daylight in England. (And possibly Wales and maybe even Scotland; three different jurisdictions in the Anglican world and two in the RC realm. Very complex. Canon lawyers should be happier than an ass in clover.) The Anglo-Catholic posts the English RC bishops' document here. There should be an existing structure at least in England by this Pentecost.

Here in the U.S. Archbishop soon-to-be-Cardinal Wuerl of Washington is the relevant prelate in charge of putting things together. He's still doing a head count. There's contact information here but not much else seems to be happening in the U.S.
