063: The Anglican Road to the Catholic Church (w/ Father James Bradley)

063: The Anglican Road to the Catholic Church (w/ Father James Bradley) June 10, 2020

In this episode of The Cordial Catholic, I’m joined by Father James Bradley, a Catholic priest in the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham and an Anglican convert to the Catholicism.

Father Bradley, a former Anglican priest, joins us to explain how he and his Anglican congregation joined the Catholic Church, en masse, through the Anglican Ordinariate opened up by Pope Benedict XVI. We discuss the importance of full communion with the Catholic Church, the structure of authority and apostolic succession, and the struggle of trying to balance a Catholic identify while remaining outside of the Catholic Church.

Plus, Father Bradley explains the unique liturgy and patrimony of the Anglican Ordinariate within the Catholic Church and, of course, we touch on one of England’s most famous converts, St. John Henry Newman.
