Former Anglican Bishops Honoured by Pope

It was announced today that the Ordinary of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham has been honoured by His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI, and has been elevated to the rank of Protonotary Apostolic.

Fr. John Broadhurst and Fr. Andrew Burnham have also been honoured by being elevated to the rank of Prelate of Honour.

As such, all three priests are now known as Monsignor.

Just for everyone’s information.

Yours in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary


Interesting! I was under the impression Rome was not making new Monsignori. . .
