An Anglican Bishop leaves the Church of England by placing his crosier and miter at the feet of Our Lady, PRESS HERE.

Pope Benedict is making it possible for entire congregations of Anglicans (Episcopalians) to swim the Tiber to Rome and to maintain much of their Liturgy, spirituality and customs. Former bishops of the Church of England who are married cannot be ordained bishops but deacons and then priests after they are validly Confirmed. The Catholic Church does not recognize the validity of Anglican Orders, thus even the Sacrament of Confirmation is not valid in the Anglican Communion as a validly ordained bishop or priest must confer it.
However, many of these former Anglican bishops once ordained Catholic priests may become Apostolic Administrators of their new Full Communion Catholic communities having many functions of a bishop, meaning they could wear the miter and use the crosier.
In the Republic of Georgia, the Diocese of Tbilisi did not have a bishop when I visited in the late 1990's. Rather they had an Apostolic Administrator. He was a "monsignor" and as Apostolic Administrator he wore the miter and used the crosier. FOR all practical purposes he was the "bishop" without being one.
I'm particularly interested in this Anglican provision as my parochial vicar in Augusta was one of the first former Episcopal priests to be ordained a Catholic priest under the Pastoral Provision of Pope John Paul II. He was the Church of the Most Holy Trinity's parochial vicar under me from 1991 until 2004 when I was assigned to St. Joseph Church in Macon. Unfortunately, he died suddenly of a heart attack in 2006. God rest his soul.
