Subject: Re: [liturgy-l] Tablet: "Lapsed Catholics can join ordinariate" - 12 July 2013
The new complimentary norm is a clarification regarding a specific context. It covers cases where someone has been baptised (may also have made 1st communion) and then lapsed. If they then return to practising their faith via the ordinariate, they can complete their initiation (confirmation) in the ordinariate and thus come under its jurisdiction.
Thanks. That makes a lot more sense in the post-Vatican II ecclesiology.
