Many people ask what is this Anglican Patrimony of which our beloved Holy Father wrote in Anglicanorum coetibus. I believe dear old Archdeacon ... oops, Cardinal Manning summed it up thus:
I see much danger of an English Catholicism of which Newman is the highest type. It is the old Anglican, patristic, literary, Oxford tone transplanted into the Church.
I have often wondered whether our own Henry 'Patrimony' Chadwick had Manning's words consciously in mind when he wrote
The fact that [Newman] had been converted to Catholicism by Oxford and the study of the Church Fathers, not by any personal friendship with Roman Catholics, meant that everything he wrote and said sounded almost Anglican.
My feeling is that Ordinariate members ought not to think of themselves as former Anglicans but as Anglicans; qualifying the term, if context requires such clarification, by the phrase " in communion with the Holy See". I gather Melkites like calling themselves "Orthodox in communion with Rome". United but not absorbed, as they said at Malines.
