Pope Francis sends message of encouragement

The website of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham reports:

Following the Ordinariate’s Westminster Festival in September 2014 Monsignor Keith Newton addressed a letter to the Holy Father, Pope Francis, assuring him of the prayers and affection of all those at the Festival. A reply has now been received on behalf of the Holy Father from Monsignor Peter B. Wells, the Pope’s Assessor, which says:

“The Holy Father encourages you to continue to fulfil, in faith and truth, the mission of the Ordinariate.

Commending you and all who belong to, and cooperate with, the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham to the intercession of Mary, Mother of the Church, the Holy Father willingly imparts his Apostolic Blessing as a pledge of peace and joy in the Lord.”

Monsignor Newton siad that he was delighted to receive this response adding that, once again, “it shows the support of the Holy Father for the Ordinariate”.
