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 Communion Votes Down "Covenant"

Looks like the Anglican's have voted to reject a "covenant" or binding agreement to limit the theological wanderings of their 40 member churches. Sadly, this will lead to even further splintering of this communion with no central authority to guide their faith and morals. The Catholic Church already did this 1687 years ago in a sweltering hot summer in Nicea in 325 AD (Council of Nicea). It's a little "covenant" called the Creed. Which incidentally, was put together by the bishops of the Catholic Church a full 57 years before the bible as we now know it was put together and canonized by this same Church (Council of Rome 382 AD)  From the article linked above: 
"In fact, Williams had little more than the force of his own personality to try and win over skeptics. The archbishop of Canterbury has no power directly over Anglican churches — either to adopt his policies or to keep them from adopting their own.
Without a central core of acceptable behavior to unite the global communion, Williams warned of the risk of "piece-by-piece dissolution."

This is like Deja Vu all over again, but hopefully this will ultimately lead more Anglicans to come back to unity with the Church.

We have to offer up our prayers for these folks in such difficult times. Ultimately it may turn out to be a positive outcome, unity as Jesus prayed.
