Anglican Parish Becomes Catholic
In Towson Maryland this weekend, an entire Anglican parish came into communion with the Catholic faith under the Anglican Ordinariate. The Anglican church began as a result of a king choosing immorality over the truth. He beheaded Saint Thomas More for not approving of his divorce. Also on this past Sunday, we celebrated the feast of Saint John the Baptist who was also beheaded for speaking the truth to another king for who choose immorality over truth.
"Liberal stances by Anglican leaders, particularly Episcopalians, have driven some clergy and members to the Roman Catholic Church. But Meeks, who studied to become a Catholic priest as a young man, speaks not of rejection but of reunification — becoming one with the "authentic apostolic authority" of the church that dates back 2,000 years."
"Most of us come from a church that could literally not say what it believed," sait Steenson, a former Episcopal bishop. "What is remarkable about the church you are joining is you will never be left in doubt again."
