Is it just me or do official Anglican pronouncements (episcopal or otherwise) increasingly have the same flavour....?
Bur compare and contrast:
Here is a report from The Catholic Herald. Nature abhors a vacuum - if "our own" authorities refuse generosity or Christian charity......
This is from the end of the article:
"Bishop Malcolm McMahon of Nottingham met about 70 Anglican clerics at Holy Cross priory in Leicester to discuss the possibility of an English Ordinariate.To return to Huxley's quotation from The Tempest:
He told the Sunday programme that he discussed “the details of the Apostolic Constitution and the complementary norms which were published last November”.
He said he was answering Pope Benedict XVI’s request to the English bishops “to offer warmth and a welcome and to facilitate their questions and their general direction, their impulse, if you like, to come into the Catholic Church”.
He said the main concerns at the meeting were “practical … about property, wages and how they would live and so on. What came through more than anything was their genuine desire to do what God has called them to do”.
"How beauteous mankind is! O brave new world, That has such people in't!"
