I read this in John Bruce’s blog:
Abp Hewpworth will visit and celebrate mass at St Mary of the Angels at 7:00 PM Epiphany Day, Friday, January 6, 2017, not Epiphany Sunday as I had previously posted. (I assumed!!) Anyone for whom this is convenient is, of course, invited. I will attend and try to get a photo, though probably not outside the church.
Unless Rome has secretly made him Titular Archbishop of Titipu sometime in the last couple of years, what surprises me is not that he is visiting a priest who wants him as his bishop. What is incoherent is that the event is being encouraged by a Roman Catholic convert and apologist who is more or less opposed to the Ordinariates on the pretext of their not being Catholic enough!
If he is not a Roman Catholic Titular Archbishop, I am wondering what he is Archbishop of. Not the TAC, because their man is Archbishop Shane Jantzen. I have not heard of a an alternative TAC being founded to replace the old one, even less of the elusive Patrimony of the Primate.
The mind boggles. Perhaps we will read soon about my crankiness. It takes all sorts – or There’s now’t so queer as folk, as we say in my part of the world.
PS. I hesitated about posting on this subject, but I saw my statistics were a little on the low side. This one should add a little pizzaz!
