Lucia Joint Anglican and Catholic Cathedral won't work

The only way a joint Anglican/Catholic Cathedral would work would be if the Anglicans all converted to Catholicism. There is precedent for large conversions of Anglicans to Catholicism through through the Ordinariate, and that would be the way to go.

I was reading an article of an Anglican convert who became a Catholic priest, who has just recently died. He once compared the Anglicanism to “whisky with three parts water”, while saying Catholics were “straight out of the bottle”. With that imagery in mind, a joint cathedral would just massively dilute the whiskey for Catholics, and be far too strong for the Anglicans.

The only people that have been talking about this potential plan have been the Anglicans, so I doubt it will get anywhere.
