Today on Register Radio, in response to a listener’s questions, we had long-time National Catholic Register columnist Father Dwight Longenecker on. He recounted his journey from evangelical Christianity to becoming an Anglican minister, and eventually his conversion to the Catholic Church and ordination as a Catholic priest. Father Longenecker provided some insight into the structure of the ordinariate, which is allowing Anglicans to enter into full communion with the Catholic Church. He also shared with listeners what was the tipping point for him in considering Catholicism. To find out what it was, listen to the show today at 2:00 p.m. EASTERN.

In the second half of our program, Dan Burke interviewed National Catholic Register blogger Pat Archbold about his posts regarding the new translation of the Roman Missal, both an experience Archbold had with a priest prior to the implementation of the missal as well as how things have been going in his parish just two weeks into the changes.
