Pope Says to Anglicans “Come on Over!”

2014-07-25T15:44:55-04:00July 25th, 2014|Categories: Anglican Matters|Tags: , , |

Pope Francis has waved a welcome to Anglicans who are still shivering on the banks of the Tiber . They don't even have to swim the Tiber anymore. They can walk across the bridge called "Ordinariate" In the wake of the Church of England's decision to ordain women bishops the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham [...]

What That Church of England Vote is Really About…

2014-07-16T10:28:33-04:00July 16th, 2014|Categories: Anglican Matters|Tags: , , , , , |

On Monday the Church of England did not simply vote to ordain women as bishops. The members of the General Synod made an even more historic decision. They decided once and for all the true nature of the Church of England. After the Protestant Revolution of the sixteenth century it was very clear for three hundred [...]

Woman Priests Courageous Pioneers?

2013-09-16T12:43:28-04:00September 16th, 2013|Categories: Catholic Culture|Tags: , , , , , |

The Anchoresses fumes over the latest "ordination" of a Catholic woman here. I cannot disagree. One of the things most offensive to anyone with a Catholic sensibility is the women priests' taste in vestments. These are not happy events. Ecclesiatical fashionista--Mantilla the Hon had a fair bit to say about it here. One of the things [...]

The Real Divisions in the Church of England

2012-11-21T08:28:35-04:00November 21st, 2012|Categories: Anglican Matters|Tags: , , , , , |

Yesterday I posted an explanation of the complex relationships within the Church of England. I explained here about Anglo Catholic, Evangelicals and Liberals. However, this is not the full story. As usual, there is a story behind the story. The divisions between Liberal, Anglo-Catholic and Evangelical are, in many respects, only superficial and historical. The real [...]

Understanding the Crisis in the Church of England

2012-11-20T16:31:42-04:00November 20th, 2012|Categories: Anglican Matters|Tags: , , , |

Do you need to understand the Church of England? Here are some explanations from this former Anglican: The Church of England is the Mother Church of the churches of the Worldwide Anglican Communion. Each of these churches are national churches and are independent. So, for example, the Anglican Church in Nigeria is independent from the Church [...]

Married Priests and Women Priests

2012-04-15T21:41:16-04:00April 15th, 2012|Categories: Anglican Matters|Tags: , , |

I commented last week on an article in the Irish press about liberal priests pushing for married priests and women priests. What gets me going is that people don't see that the two issues are not connected. The Catholic teaching is clear. The issue of married priests is a matter of discipline, not doctrine. It's like [...]

Abortion as a Blessing?

2012-04-12T09:31:25-04:00April 12th, 2012|Categories: Anglican Matters|Tags: , , , , |

This article that a Planned Parenthood clinic is organizing 40 Days of Prayer for Abortion is shocking, but should not be. Remember that the majority of mainstream Protestant denominations are now "pro-Choice" and an increasing number of Evangelical churches that used to hold firm on abortion are silent or operate a "don't ask don't [...]
