Luke 11:17 But he seeing their thoughts, said to them: Every kingdom divided against itself, shall be brought to desolation, and house upon house shall fall.
John 17:21 That they all may be one, as thou, Father, in me, and I in thee; that they also may be one in us; that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. 22 And the glory which thou hast given me, I have given to them; that they may be one, as we also are one: 23 I in them, and thou in me; that they may be made perfect in one: and the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast also loved me.
It is great news, welcome home

The linked article discusses Evensong and Benediction, sung according to the Book of Divine Worship, an Anglican liturgical book being revised in Rome for Catholic Anglican Use folks.
For English traditional prayers in very noble language, this is wonderful stuff.
I’ll be darned. My husband and I used to belong to an Anglican parish, having grown up Episcopalian. We got sick of all the infighting and converted to Roman Catholicism. It will be nice to be able to attend a TAC church with the Anglican traditions and still be within the fold of the Catholic church......what a blessing if it really happens!
Smarter people than me have ti figure this out, but how would you do something like this?
NYER get on this thread
Welcome hone indeed! The Family opens its arms to you....
It’s already been done. The Vatican has recently established protocols for Anglicans who want to come home.
What a great day. “There will be one flock, one Shepherd.” John 10:16
Not to take away from what is truly a joyous occasion.
I went to some of the ACA’s websites, and I noticed that they have an office of “deaconess.” I would guess that’s out the window now.
First You get Your RCIA Form, get your Adult catechism, Then Buy a True Catholic Bible with the 7 Books you were Missing, Pay the $60 registration fee study every thursday Night until Next Lenten time and On Holy saturday at the Easter vigil Mass You will have heard your Confession , Received the Eucharist and Then Confirmed! Welcome To the Church Jesus Founded. Peter upon this Rock I build my Church! Enjoy the Full use of all our Saints their Trials tribulations and prolific History! Go to the Holyland and you will see Catholicism in it Birth! Study the 33 Doctors of the Church and enrich your sense with how the Church eveolved with the Holy spirit help in solving the Growing pains and Heretcics... quite enlightening! ENJOY and Welcome Home!
I don’t know. “Deaconess” might morph into something else; the original role of deacons (and “deaconesses”) was not liturgical, but to distribute food to the poor and do a lot of what we would now call administrative activities.
(This was back in the day where baptisms even of adults were conducted with the baptizand dressed in his or her "birthday suit".)
I have no idea what function they serve in the ACA. Presumably such an office could still exist, if it were the subject of careful catechesis and the commissioning liturgy for the "deaconess" was not to be confused with the conferral of Holy Orders.
I miss Arlin. He was a good FRiend of us Methodists.
