My Dear Brothers & Sisters:
This is a Long-Term Prayer Request, and I beg you to include this in your prayers for the next year. Before I start, here is a little background from a Catholic TV show from Canada:
As I understand it, what the Vatican and Archbishop Hepworth have been trying to negotiate is a situation where the TAC would be accepted as a body using the principles/articles first used to bring the various Eastern Catholic Churches into Communion with the Catholic Church.These are known as the Articles of Brest or Union of Brest.
The problem is that, about 2-1/2 years ago, I was involved in the now infamous “Anglicans to Rome” Threads. Apparently, my then Rector who was vehemently opposed to this union found out about a trial balloon the Vatican was about to float, and had me publish it in one of those threads. It completely blew up in my, the TAC’S and the Vatican’s, faces, and very nearly derailed the union I’m now begging you to pray for.
Please also pray for my former Rector who’s not only left the priesthood, but also left the church and the Lord.
And, Pray for me that I learn enough wisdom to avoid similar snares from the Enemy of the People of God.
Your Brother in Christ, Michael
