About Fr Stephen SmutsTAC Priest in South Africa.
Thank you, Father, for posting the questions and the ongoing summary of constructive responses.
There are some comments and a question (in red) at the end of posting (3). These relate to the interpretation of Anglicanorum Coetibus and the Code of Canon Law for ordinariate governing councils.
Further comments on these or other related issues are most welcome.
Once again Mourad’s statements show really how “Judaistic” Roman Catholicism can be. And Credo simply means: I Believe! (And btw there is a nice blog called, “Credo House” around these parts!) And “synod” of course for Protestants can mean just “meeting”, but of course for ecclesiastical and theological statements, etc. I think it is most important to note that most historical churches see and believe in the so-called Ecumenical Councils, at least the first 3 to 5.
Of course, no Ordinariate has yet estabilished its Goverinng Council Before that can happen, the statutes of the council have to be drafted by the Ordinary and approved by Rome. The OLW is operating with an interim governing council and has appointed its Financial Secretary. Most Ordinariate Groups already have their pastoral councils who advise the pastor. So far as Canon lawyers are concerned the OLW Ordinariate already has its Chancellor and Vice Chancellor and as is usual in the UK dioceses both are priests. Ordinariate priests are also members of diocesan priests councils. There are encouraging indications of real co-operation between diocesan and ordinariate clergy at deanerly level.
