Before reading this post- take a look at the pictures at the end of the post and then come back read the following statement below... ** Would it shock would you if I told you these images come from an Anglican Church???** I wanted to share this with you- I recently came across this Church. It is the Church of St. Silas, it is an Anglo Catholic or a "High Church" parish in London- Anglo Catholic means that you are an Anglican (in Communion with the Archbishop of Canterbury, with her majesty Queen Elizabeth as head of the Church) but that in belief and practice you are a Catholic. These images show something extremely beautiful and awe inspiring, it is almost "unbelievable" that they are not Roman Catholic- the last picture is from the shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham, to whom I am most devoted!- at Walsingham there is a Catholic and an Anglican Shrine. Most people in England, Catholics and Anglicans alike don't realize that this type of worship does exist in the Anglican Church and it is beautiful.....as Roman Catholics many of us love this kind of worship and crave these Solemn Liturgies and processions- it is awe inspiring that our brethren in the Anglican Church (some of them) are doing this. It is such a shame that all this can't come over to Rome and then be really Catholic! The Anglican Ordinariate- has brought a lot of this with it and has enriched many English Catholics and brought something special to English Catholicism with them. Please join me in praying for a greater unity between Anglicans and Catholics, if all Anglicans were like this there wouldn't be any problems! I myself as a Roman Catholic (and former Anglican) would feel very comfortable praying and going in procession with these Anglicans- I am a great devotee of Our Lady of Walsingham as I mentioned and the Anglo Catholic Church there is like a Roman Basilica and many Catholic people get confused and go to Mass and even Communion at the Anglican Shrine, I myself saw Mass being said there at the Altar in the last picture and it was 100% identical to a Catholic Mass, of course I did not go to Communion but it was tempting as it was so "Catholic"- I do wear an Anglo Catholic medal of Our Lady of Walsingham. Let us pray that all this comes over to Rome and for the true conversion of "Anglicans" to the Roman religion and for England's return to her Holy Mother and the Chief Shepherd, the Vicar of Rome!
