I do not understand this reversal of the Reformation. Just doesn’t compute! Granted, the Episcopal Church has gone apostate, but there is a plethora of evangelical and conservative Anglican organizations that they could affiliate with. But, to pass back over the Rubican is inexplicable.

Many things the Holy Spirit does are inexplicable. But they often bring joy and hope.

The Reformation’s grounding in medieval Nominalism has come home to roost.

Even in time, those independent evangelical and conservative Anglican churches may take a second look at the ordinate in the USA.

That's the problem right there. Our Lord didn't found "a plethora of organizations". He founded one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church.

But, to pass back over the Rubican is inexplicable.

What if Caesar was wrong to pass over the Rubicon? What if Henry VIII was (spectacularly !!) wrong to declare himself "Supreme Head of the Church in England"? What if Thomas More, John Fisher, Edmund Campion, and Oliver Plunkett were right?
