[quote=porthos11]Made my skin crawl. And these come straight out of the ECUSA Web site, no less.
(“Liturgy” with feminine pronouns for God. Even Christ).
(Morning Service with the same linguistic mutilatoins).
On that same page there used to be a “Liturgy for Divorce” (!) and a “Women’s Eucharist” (!!) that offered rasin cakes to the “Queen of Heaven” (the ancient pagan deity, not our dear blessed Mother of God).
What the hekk is happening to the Episcopal Church?
With great sadness, I have to tell you that most of the LEADERSHIP of ECUSA is in rebellion against God, the Catholic faith and the Anglican Communion.
This is my report from the Nottingham meetings:
Re: Scary Episcopalian Encounter - Post #49
The “Liveblog” might be old, but the rest should still be up to date.
This seems to be the response of the bishops of the Global South.
CENTRAL AFRICA PRIMATE: “CAPA Bishops Will Decide Anglican Future. Talk is Over”
By David W. Virtue
An Interview with Archbishop Bernard Malango, Primate of Central Africa.
*NOTTINGHAM (6/24/2005)–The Archbishop of Central Africa says that an exit strategy from the Anglican Communion has been drawn up and schism will occur before the next Lambeth Conference, with a new world headquarters for Anglicanism in Alexandria, Egypt, because the North American churches will not repent of their actions condoning “immoral sexual behavior”.
In a wide-ranging interview with VirtueOnline, the Most Rev. Bernard Malango said the CAPA and Global South bishops have had enough of talking about homosexuality and when they meet in Alexandria in October they will bring finality to the situation. The Primate told VirtueOnline; “This is not just the voice of the Archbishop of Central Africa, I speak knowing what the Primates of the Global South think and they are of the same opinion.”*
I have something from the American Anglican Council saying they don’t think the Bishops and Primates from CAPA mean this, but I think they do.
I was just involved in a situation with the (Anglican) Huron University College and Divinity School which is belongs to the Anglican Church of Canada (they’re in the same hot water and in the same heresy and apostasy as ECUSA, and they’re almost as clueless), where they sponsored a Pro-Abortion Activist to speak in support of the University of Western Ontario’s (which they’re part of) honoring of the man most responsible for legalized Abortion in Canada and against those of us who protested it.
My name is most definitely “MUDD” at Huron University College and the C of C Diocese of Huron, because I helped to expose the entire thing to the Bishops and Primates of Global South!
The Primates of the Global South are serious because they’ve had just seen too many things like you described, and like I dealt with at Huron, and they’ve had enough.
The Only Questions are, "How many are Orthodox and Catholic enough that they can be brough into the Catholic Faith? What is the best and most effective way to do this?
I know there are a couple on the board who disagree with me, but this summer, some Bishops from the Traditional Anglican Comunion will go on retreat with the Bishops of the Catholic Church and then join them in the International Conference of Catholic Bishops (in Rome). They will be the first Anglican Bishops to have ever been invited to either.
If this is successful, an Anglican Rite or Anglican Catholic Church (much like the Eastern Catholic Churches) should begin to emerge with the Pope’s approval and in union with The Catholic Church within the next few years.
This will be the culmination of work begun in 1994 by negotiators from the TAC and Pope John Paul II and Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger.
From what I’ve seen of the situation in ECUSA and the C of C, the creation/emergence of the Anglican Catholic Church in union with The Catholic Church and with the approval of the Pope couldn’t hapen too soon.
Please pray for the orthodox Christian believers, congregations and priests who feel stuck in ECUSA. Please esp. pray for those men who were ordained in the 1960’s, and who thought that things couldn’t get worse, who now must rely on ECUSA for their pensions.
And, please pray that those Anglicans who find themselves compelled to leave don’t get the same welcome I got on the Anglicans to Rome Threads. Please pray that the Catholics will see brothers and not enemies or competitors, and that Our Lord prayed for us to be One in Him.
And, porthos11, if you have any time left, pray for the conversion of people like Bishop Robinson and Bishop Griswald and that they lead NO more sheep astray.
I hope this answers your question.
Blessed are thy who act to save God’s Little Ones. Michael
