It's official. The Catholic Knight is retired.  I'm hanging up the helmet and passing the torch. There will be no more articles, no more commentaries, no more calls to action. THIS BLOG IS CLOSED. I've spent a very long time thinking about this, I believe the time has come, and is a bit overdue.  I want to thank my readers for everything, but most especially for your encouragement and your willingness to go out there and fight the good fight. So, that being the case, I've spend the last several weeks looking for bloggers who are fairly active, and best represent something akin to the way I think and what I believe.  I recommend the following blogs for my readers to bookmark and check on regularly. Pick one as your favourite, or pick them all. They are all great..... In His Majesty's Service, THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT

200 Church of England Priests to Enter Ordinariate

THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT has learned that as many as 200 Anglo-Catholic priests within the Church of England (CofE) are seriously considering entry into the Anglican ordinariate to be created by Pope Benedict XVI. Seventy CofE priests met with a Roman Catholic bishop last Saturday (before the synod vote on Sunday) to discuss this very thing. Now that the CofE synod has voted (on Sunday) to consecrate women bishops, without any provision made for Anglo-Catholic traditionalists, it is sure to have galvanized the 200 already considering conversion, and perhaps bring in a couple hundred more who were straddling the fence.
