If you are reading a blog about the possible unification of the Catholic and Anglican churches, there is a good chance that you are interested in learning more about the catholic faith period If you are not, perhaps you could be persuaded to do so period 🙂 RCIA Is a great way to do this, But it can be a big time suck if you’re not really serious period Sometimes, you may also have questions about what the Catholic Church says about a particular aspect of your Anglican faith. It can be very difficult for an RCIA teacher to answer such questions if she is not familiar with the Anglican tradition period Through this section of my blog, I hope to provide a series of brief catechetical lessons which Will be designed especially for you, my Anglican readers, and will hopefully answer some of the questions that you may have period If there is a topic that you would like me to cover sooner rather than later, feel free to leave a recommendation in the comment box of any post period I am working on getting an email for this blog that can serve the same purpose period
Our lord’s peace be with you forever
Although there are obviously many great things that we can do To work towards the eventual reception of all Anglicans into full unity with the Catholic Church, The greatest and most valuable thing that we can ever do for our Anglican brothers and sisters is to pray for them to our God and to the immaculate heart of Mary. Today I wish to remind or educate you about a very fulfilling way that we can do this. I am talking about the green scapular which was given to us by our lady.
The green scapular is yet another way to express our love for the immaculate heart of Mary. It is associated with conversion. The prayer which is associated with it is immaculate heart of Mary pray for us now and at the hour of our death. You can either wear it for one of your Anglican friends or, if it seems to be prudent, put a green scapular into their belongings. Below is a link to the green scapular society which has more information about this wonderful devotion that I could possibly tell you in a blog post. I encourage all of you to buy green scapulars, to wear them and to join the green scapular society. May all of you remain forever devoted to our immaculate mother.
My dear readers, I am sure that all of you realize that yesterday was the installation mass for the new holy father of the Catholic Church. This is a joyous occasion and all of us should praise God that it was able to happen so quickly.
As I think about how grateful I am for Pope Francis and the institution of the papacy in general, I am filled with loving remembrance for our previous holy father who has done so much Good in pursuit of the final unification of the Catholic and Anglican churches. There are no words that I can say to express How much good His establishment Of an Anglican ordinariate Has done for the church and for many grateful souls. The attached link is a wonderful review of some of the accomplishments both of our Lord and of our previous holy father. We must all remember to pray for the Growth of ordinariates. We must also Pray for Pope Francis, Who still has much work to do On behalf of the Church of England. www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/pope-praised-for-trailblazing-unity-with-Anglicans/
Before we begin examining In depth The issues involved with evangelizing England, I will tell you a bit about myself. I’m a Catholic convert who will enter into the church this Easter vigil. Last year, on February 23, was the day that I knew without a doubt that I was ment to be a Catholic. I had someone in my life who I believed to be a very good Catholic. This person modeled their faith for me And inspired me to begin RCIA the following year. However, five months later, I found out that this person was actually Anglican. Although this person was and still is for me a model of Christian virtue, The news was devastating. The thing that was more devastating though was the fact that all of my Catholic friends didn’t seem to think it was a problem. All of them except for one told me that the Anglicans were really close to the Catholic Church and it didn’t seem to matter to them that my friends and all of the other members of the Anglican church are not receiving the same Eucharist that we do. It was as a result of their comments that I realized that I had a calling to work towards unity between the Anglican and Catholic churches.
