A leading Anglican prelate has dismissed Pope Benedict’s decision to create ordinariates in which Anglican communities that seek full communion with the Holy See would be permitted to retain elements of the Anglican liturgy.

“If people genuinely realize that they want to be Roman Catholic, they should convert properly, and go through catechesis and be made proper Catholics,” said Ugandan-born Archbishop John Sentamu of York. “As far as I am concerned, if I was really, genuinely wanting to convert, I wouldn’t go into an ordinariate. I would actually go into catechesis and become a truly converted Roman Catholic and be accepted.”
