What the heck is an English Ordinariate Parish? The short answer is simply this. When a bunch of Anglicans decided to come back into the Catholic Church, from 1980 through 2012, they requested that they could bring elements of their Anglican (English) Patrimony with them. A good part of these elements, found in the Book of Common Prayer, originally came from the old Catholic Sarum Use before the English Reformation anyway. So it was really just a matter of re-adopting what the Catholic Church had lost under King Henry VIII back in 1535.

In 1980, Pope St. John Paul II established the Anglican Use Pastoral Provision, which was a temporary experiment to see if this would work. It worked quite well. So in 2009 through 2012, Pope Benedict XVI established three Ordinariates (more permanent diocesan-like jurisdictions) to allow this process to…

Of course, Summers was aggressively poo-poo’d by policy nabobs at Treasury . . . when he first projected that inflation would likely exceed 5% by the end of 2021 thanks to the federal government’s decision to hand out trillions of dollars in stimmies, benefits and PPP loans (combined with the Fed’s ’emergency’ policy posture that involved backstopping corporate debt and slamming interest rates back down to the zero-bound).

Biden did it, or stood by while his people did.

While he has since been vindicated, at the time, Summers was nearly excommunicated by his fellow Democrats for having the audacity to suggest that the federal government shouldn’t have ridden to the rescue of ordinary people during a once-in-a-century pandemic (or, at the very least, it maybe should have considered a more measured approach).

Wha’? And lose all that good will from stimmie recipients?

Now, months after Summers inflationary fears were vindicated, the Fed has finally summoned the courage to acknowledge that maybe the government’s balls-to-the-wall COVID stimulus was responsible for stoking the voracious inflationary spiral that – contrary to Jerome Powell’s assurances – has been anything but “transitory”.

Oh, when will they ever learn? Oh, when will they ever learn?
