"The Pope's Project" In US Debut, Rome's "Grand Inqusitor" Talks the Ordinariates
Whispers in the Loggia ^ | 2/2/13 | Roccp Palmo

In his first American appearance as the Vatican's chief guardian of church teaching, the new CDF prefect Archbishop Gerhard Ludwig Müller delivered the keynote earlier today at a Houston symposium (video) on Anglicanorum coetibus, marking a year since the establishment of the H-Town based ordinariate of the Chair of St Peter.

Under the provisions of B16's 2009 constitution that carved a path for groups of Anglicans to enter the Catholic communion en masse while maintaining aspects of their spiritual, liturgical and juridical heritage, Müller's "Holy Office" is tasked with global oversight of the project, which now encompasses three diocese-like jurisdictions in England, the States and, most recently, Australia. (The 1,600-member US ordinariate likewise encompasses Canada.)

Since last summer's first round of ordinations following an expedited, mostly-online program of priestly formation based at the site of today's conference – Houston's St Mary's Seminary – the Stateside entity has ordained some 30 priests (most of them married) with just as many in the pipeline to follow

The same reason all journalistic hyperbole is "self-serving". It's designed to create an angle, generate controversy, attract attention and thereby raise the profile of the author/organization which produces it.

"CDF Prefect Addresses US Ordinariate" works for me.
