In our post on this blog yesterday, we referred to the reception being held last night in the Archbishop of Westminster's throne room, at which His Eminence Cardinal Levada formally launched the Friends of the Ordinariate.
Photos of the event have now started to appear on the internet. You can find the Catholic Church's Flickr photostream of this event here.
Two of the best known British Catholic bloggers have also posted short reports and some photos on their highly-to-be-recommended blogs. Here is Fr Ray Blake of St Mary Magdalen, Brighton on the reception. The first to post photos was Fr Tim Finigan, at his Hermeneutic of Continuity blog.
The eagle-eyed amongst you will spot that one of the members of the Marylebone Ordinariate Group can be seen in the middle of one of Fr Finigan's photos.
Do please consider making a donation to the Friends of the Ordinariate, thereby directly helping the implementation of the Holy Father's generous Apostolic Constitution, Anglicanorum Coetibus.
For more background on the Ordinariate, provided by Monsignor Keith Newton in conversation with Ruth Gledhill, do watch the video below. Monsignor Newton talks of his own spiritual journey in thie film, in which, of particular interest to the members of the Marylebone Ordinariate Group, he mentions St Mary's Bourne St, Eric Mascall and Brian Horne.
