Ordinariate Pastoral letter

Mgr Keith Newton issued a pastoral letter for the first anniversary of the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham. I was especially encouraged by this passage:
What of the future? We face it with faith and hope, committing it to the Lord. There is a constant stream of men and women being received into the full communion of the Catholic Church through the Ordinariate, we expect several new groups to be received at Easter and we are preparing for a number of ordinations to the priesthood around Pentecost. In addition several young men are exploring the possibility of ordination within the Ordinariate.
I made copies of the pastoral letter available in my parish because it will help some people to understand what the Ordinariate is. As Mgr Newton explains, many Catholics have had no contact with the Ordinariate and misunderstand it.
