Crossed The Tiber

An Evangelical Converts to Catholicism

Location: Pennsylvania, United States

I was born into the Catholic faith. At 14, I was "born again" and found Jesus personally but lost His Church. After thirty years as an evangelical protestant, I have come full circle to find that He has been there all the time, in the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. I wish others to find the beauty and truth of the Catholic faith as I have found.

Anglican Church Votes to Ordain Women as Bishops

The Church of England voted to ordain women as bishops. This is a move that has been disappointing to Rome because the hope for unity has been dashed by this decision. Yet, there are many traditionalist bishops and priests in the Anglican Communion who disagreed with this decision. Some of these traditional bishops have been in private talks with Rome recently to discuss the possibility of an en masse tiber crossing.
I suspect that these Anglo-Catholics will now be much more likely to come home to Rome, while the less conservative members of the Church of England will continue to plod along, with much less likelihood of ever having unity with the Catholic Church.

St. Augustine of Canterbury, we ask your intercessions for the Anglican Church
