My Brothers and Sisters in The Lord:
I ask for your prayers as I undergo 2 separate sets of discernments - One has to do with the very Church I attend, which because of some sensitive negotiations involving the TAC, I can’t go into too much detail here. The problem may have to do with the parish I was attending. If so, I don’t want the problems with the parish to screw up the rest of the Traditional Anglican Communion’s chances for Union with the Holy Father. However, as TAC parishes aren’t nearly as plentiful as Roman Catholic parishes, I’m forced, due to problems my parish had with supporting the most basic Pro-Life agenda and with providing for the poorer members of the congregation and the community, to consider doing what I had been instructed not do on my own.
As I said, I’m not going to go into more detail than that as I don’t want to hurt the chances for unity between the Holy See and the TAC, esp. if the problem is with my parish and its congregation…
At the same time, I’ve been feeling a “tug” towards religious life and or Holy Orders. Now, I understand it would require a miracle to make me appropriate for Holy Orders (physical Disability), but, “All things are possible with God.” Again, I ask for your prayers, that if there is any chance that I am called, that I don’t screw this up, and that I am provided with whatever improvements in health are needed to make me able to do this.
I’m sorry to lay this on you, but I really would appreciate your prayers. I also wouldn’t mind any comments if anyone has any real information and wants to send me a PM.
Your Brother and Servant in Christ, Michael
