Some time back I asked for all of your prayers because I was about to make the leap from Anglicanism to the Catholic Church. Most of you probably know that the Anglican church (especially the strains known as “high church” and “Anglo-Catholic”) are very close to Rome in liturgy and belief. What was holding me back was my feelings about the Church’s heirarchy and what was urging me forward was my knowledge that Christ instituted the Church and my dissatisfaction with the rifts in the Anglican church caused by the ordination of a certain bishop.
The upshot of it all is that as the result of a serendipitous meeting with a local priest (the whole story is in my previous thread) I was urged by the Spirit to take the plunge and inquire about involving myself with RCIA, which I’m to begin in September.
I really appreciate everyone’s prayers at that time. My prayer life has been more fulfilling, I’m reading a number of books about the Church and I’ve been buying literature and sacramentals from an online apostolate. I’m doing what I can to “immerse” myself in the doctrines and beliefs of the Church so that when I begin classes I’ll know what I’m about.
:knight1: And every day I try to put on the “whole armour of God,” as St Paul put it.
Keep on praying for me, please - and I’ll keep on returning the favour!
