Hello to our German friends!
If you look at the ACS Blogs statistics, the top 4 countries that show up are no surprise: the USA, Canada, the UK and Australia. Yet the 5th country that ranks the most which we have had thousands of views from is a surprise: Germany.
Now many Germans have English as a 2nd language (or 3rd or 4th), and Germany does have a sizable Catholic population- yet neither explain such interest in our Patrimony. I am sure some of those views come from those who call an Ordinariate home visiting Germania, but not around a few thousand- nowhere near.
It does make me wonder if German Lutheran eyes are watching us, as they are the only other Christian group Personal Ordinariates would be erected for.
If you are a German Lutheran interested in coming ‘Home to Rome’ (or anyone else for that matter), you might want to touch base with the Coming Home Network, and if you are a married clergyman, you might be interested in this section.
Oh and the 6th highest traffic country is the Philippines, which has a group wishing to enter an Ordinariate. More on them later…..
