Mgr Mark Langham on the Ordinariate & ARCIC

5 02 2011

During a Vatican Radio interview, Mgr Langham who is the Catholic co-secretary of the new ARCIC phase, made the following comments:

How will the new Ordinariate affect your work?
We’ve always said the path of traditional ecumenical dialogue is different from that of individual or group conversion – Vatican Council makes that clear in its document on ecumenism, so we don’t see our work lying within that framework of the ordinariate. Our work is to stress the traditional relationship between the two traditions that has been expressed over 40 years in ARCIC so although the ordinariate is an extremely important aspect of the landscape it won’t in itself be something that comes into our discussions.
