And the first Ordinariate has been established!

We should have great joy today at the historic reconciliation of Anglicans to the Church, symbolised by the ordination of the first three priests, and the formal establishment of the first of the new Ordinariates, for England and Wales.

In the past individuals have made the jump; now the way is paved for many to do so.

And the willingness of these men to publicly be received into the Church and be ordained, with no talk of conditional ordination, finally makes it utterly clear that Anglicans who remain behind must let go of any claims to be 'catholic'.

Here's a guide to some of the early coverage.
