One more step forward...

The appointment of an Ordinary for the U.S. Ordinariate is welcome news indeed, even if this story has broken somewhat prematurely.  You can read about it here.

Fr Jeffrey Steenson is a priest already known and respected by many of the Catholic bishops, and having him in this position will help to give credibility to this newest jurisdiction in the Church in this country.

My own acquaintance with Fr Steenson goes back several years, and the many impressive gifts he brings to this position bodes well for the future of the Ordinariate.

May God bless you, Fr Steenson, and all those who will be entering the Ordinariate!
