Secret: identity

Why the forthcoming Apostolic Constitution for receiving existing groups of Anglicans into the Catholic Church? Yesterday Brett Salkeld at Vox Nova suggested an answer.
At dinner last night one man spoke up and said, “As a Mennonite, this looks like an answer to what I’ve been asking: Can I be a Mennonite and a Catholic at the same time? How can I be in communion with the bishop of Rome, and thus the whole Church, without forsaking my Mennonite identity?”

These ordinariates give us a way to imagine just that.
For starters.
