Just what is going on at Walsingham? There is plenty of comment around but, it seems, no firm information, other than the statement of the sisters who have left. It's probably best for me not to add too much to the speculation.
However, it would be shameful if the parting of friends were to turn into an exercise in controlling potential 'contagion.'
If, as we've been told, time after time - ad nauseam, in fact - Anglicanorum Coetibus and the imminent setting up of the Ordinariate is such an insignificant episode in the ongoing life of the Church of England, why is the Establishment getting quite so jittery?
