Am an Anglican by faith, but not a contemporary Episcopalian. Am giving up on the US Episcopal church, and am going to convert to the Roman Catholic church.

Not that big a leap, really.

Some Episcopalian priests and their congregations are becoming Catholic. Bishop Gene is so vile and provocative, and cannot keep his hateful propagandizing quiet, that a schism in the Anglican Communion is inevitable, although Ratzinger/Benedict XVI sees opposed to this.

Why do you say that "Ratzinger is opposed to this"?

I speak legaleze but I confess I must be missing something.

All I get is saying that he is reminding them of the importance of the church, remember the teachings, and good luck.

Nothing specific about homosexuals in the church.

What am I missing?

I read it a few times but I don't know what he's saying about the issue at hand. Can you break it down? Thanks...

Beautiful letter. As a former Episcopalean, now Catholic, the more I read about Pope Benedict XVI, the more I love him.

The mere fact that he sent an open letter to this "rebel" group in another denomination was itself a big statement.

see my post # 11. It was a rebuff to the hierarchy of the Episcopal Church, for Ratzinger to formally acknowledge this rebel faction.

Transubstantiation vs. Consubstantiation. Not a small issue.

Thanks to ken5050 for spotting and pinging this.

Traditional Anglican ping, continued in memory of its founder Arlin Adams.

FReepmail sionnsar if you want on or off this moderately high-volume ping list (typically 3-7 pings/day).
This list is pinged by sionnsar and newheart.

Resource for Traditional Anglicans: http://trad-anglican.faithweb.com

Speak the truth in love. Eph 4:15


Off-topic question to the Traditional Anglican ping list from one of its members: Who attends/recommended the Church of the Resurrection in Tampa, FL for the Traditional Anglican resource Page (in my tagline)? A listmember may be headed down that way soon.

I went to Drudge and a couple different threads on the new Pope on F.R. Not one picture of this person anywhere. Doesn't anyone have his picture? I read that he was the leader in Pope John's funeral, someone must have taken his picture.
