Members of the Ordinariates throughout the world will rejoice together today at the announcement from Rome that the distinguished blogger and liturgist Fr John Hunwicke has been made titular Bishop of Leptis Magna (in part. infid.) in recognition of his services to Catholic Unity and Orthodoxy.

Pope Francis (a devotee of Fr Hunwicke’s Mutual Enrichment) told Fr Thomas Rosica (his preferred interlocutor):

‘John Hunwicke has chronicled this pontificate with unfailing generosity and accuracy. The Holy See owes him an enduring debt of gratitude. In further acknowledgement of his unstinting service we are appointing him Head of the newly constituted  Annabile Bugnini Academy of Liturgical Innovation.’

Suggestions are invited from readers for Bishop Hunwicke’s coat of arms.
