I think this a photograph of the CanonCanon Ronald Bullivant was the Vicar of the Anglican Church of the Anunciation in Brighton from 1953 -1989. He was very 'igh and very much a Brighton institution, one of those holy, impressive Anglo-Catholics. I remember a conversation I once had with him in which he said he very much wanted to be in communion with the Holy See, but his problem was he said,
"If I was received into the Catholic this evening, I would have to throw into the dustbin that which I had consecrated, honoured as God and knelt before this morning, I just couldn't do that."It seems to be a similar problem to the one mentioned in the previous post. Canon Bullivant was very proud of his ordination pedigree, which I think went back to at least one of the Father's of Trent. He believed, many of his "spiritual sons" who found there way across the Tiber believed him to be validly ordained.
Rational, contributors are invited to respond to the Canon's dilemma.
