"Ordinariate has Unique Role in New Evangelisation" - Ordinary
Tuesday 13th May 2014

The Ordinary of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham Monsignor Keith Newton, has said the Ordinariate has a unique part to play in the New Evangelisation because of the way it " brings into modern Catholicism an ancient Britsh expression of Christian life".

Writing in the Friends of the Ordinariate's Eastertide Newsletter, Mgr Newton quotes the words of Pope Francis in his Apostolic Exhortation, Evangelii Gaudium, in which the Holy Father says that it is through the diversity of the countless people who have received and passed on the grace of faith "in the language of their own culture" that the Church expresses her genuine catholicity and shows forth the "beauty of her varied face".

Mgr Newton writes: "For centuries, a particularly English and ancient culture of Catholic truth has been treasured and guarded within the Church of England, while Anglicanism itself is interwoven into the culture of British society". The Ordinariate, Mgr Newton goes on, is a tool of profound importance in the New Evangelisation because it provides a bridge between the Catholic Church and deeply rooted elements of British religious culture. 

Mgr Newton's message concludes with an appeal for support for the Friends of the Ordinariate, a charity started by lay Catholics, which gives practical and financial assistance to the Ordinariate. "By supporting the Friends of the Ordinariate", he writes, "you are helping to build a future for the Church that is intrinsic to the vision both of Pope Emeritus Benedict and Pope Francis. You are also helping to provide the material tools needed for our mission to preach the Gospel to the people of England and Wales".
