ORDINARIATE VIEWPOINT:


The Ordinary of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham, the Right Reverend Monsignor Keith Newton, has welcomed the election of our new Holy Father.

In a statement he said, "Together with the whole Church we rejoice at the election of our new Holy Father, Pope Francis, an obviously humble and holy man".

"In union with him, we recommit ourselves to the work of evangelisation and of deepening our relationship with Jesus Christ, who guides and leads his Church".

"I invite all the faithful of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham - clergy, religious, and lay faithful - to pray for Pope Francis as he begins his ministry as the Successor of Saint Peter. As his first visit was to the shrine of Our Lady, Salus Populi Romani, in Santa Maria Maggiore, so we turn also to our blessed Lady, Our Lady of Walsingham, and entrust him to her care. May she and Blessed John Henry Newman, our patron, pray for him and may God bless his ministry as Bishop of Rome and grant him a long life!".
