Defecting to the Fullness of Truth

September 30th, 2010, Promulgated by Gen

The following comes to us from Baltimore. Read the full article here.

The vestry of Mount Calvary Church (Episcopal), a small but historic Anglo-Catholic parish in Baltimore, has voted unanimously in favor of two resolutions: first, to leave the Episcopal Church and second, to become an Anglican Use parish in the Holy Catholic Church under terms of Anglicanorum Coetibus, the apostolic constitution announced last year by the Vatican that provides for “personal ordinariates for Anglicans entering full communion with the Catholic Church,” while allowing them to retain most elements of Anglican worship using a modified version of the Book of Common Prayer.

"Why are they leaving? I let them do whatever they want!"

    Are these Anglican parishes being absorbed into the Catholic CHurch or is there resistence by the local Catholic Bishops because of the conservative make-up of the Anglicans. I heard there was a lot of foot dragging by the Catholic bishops of England, Scotland and Wales over this.

    I’m praying for more of this in the aftermath of Pope Benedict’s historic visit to England and the beatification of John Henry Newman. The time has come.
