The Catholic Café interviews Bishop Lopes

On The Catholic Café, Deacon Jeff Drzycimski interviews Bishop Steven Lopes of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter during a pilgrimage to Lourdes. You can listen to the interview online by clicking here. (If the audio tape does not open when you press the “play” button, just scroll down a few lines and click on the red arrow alongside “Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter”.)

Bishop Lopes gives some interesting background information about how Anglican priests and people actually come to enter the Ordinariate and provides the latest figures on Ordinariate membership (since the integration of the Parish of Our Lady of the Atonement in San Antonio):

“Canonical” members: 10,000
Mass attendance: 20,000

  1. Thank you for linking it, David!
    IMHO, apart from the amazing figures (much higher than anyone would expect), the key moment is bishop Lopes’ answering a question, why would popes support first PP then Ordinariates, by saying that in their opinion this whole movement has been inspired by the Holy Spirit. That’s exactly what we believe!
