Episcopal church to become Catholic

Feb 20, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: ABC2 Maryland

St. Timothy's Episcopal Church in Catonsville is now Catholic.

Members of St. Timothy's voted on Feb. 10 whether to leave The Episcopal Church and whether to enter the Ordinariate. Eighty of 100 parishioners were present; 55 were voting members. Of the voting members, six people abstained; 83 percent elected to leave The Episcopal Church and 76 percent to enter the Ordinariate ...

What you write of is all well and good for you and by all means stay where you are. As a Catholic I realize that the Church is not all about me and my wants. I believe the Catholic Church does not change quickly for a reason. The Episcopalians that are becoming Catholic on account of how some of these very issues are being addressed by the Episcopal Church appears to me to be a sad example of what bringing change too quickly on sensitive issues can do to a church.

The Episcopal Church is not the Roman Catholic Church for reasons that the Roman Catholic Church has never been able to accept.

The Episcopal Church is a product of the Reformation. Today, we continue in that stead by reinforcing and continuing to reestablish ourselves in the Teachings of Christ Jesus.

Reason/Tradition/Scripture.... how hard is that to understand?

We do not check our brains at the door. PLUS I am smart enough to know that there will just be some things in the Bible I can't understand...doesn't matter. God loves me anyway.

You make a broad statement. As a member of the Catholic Church I accept the reality of the Reformation. I accept that the Episcopal Church is a product of it. I believe all are doing their best to continue as best we can to live the teachings of Christ as we know them. Still we are not united as Christ intended and the fact that many go out of their way on these threads to snipe at each other over our differences is not a good thing.

PeB,

I agree, except for just one point. I believe that we ARE united as Christ intended. We just don't like to admit it, sometimes.

Traditions held by every religious denomination have persistent qualities that have tendencies to produce crystallized patterns of thought and rigid acceptance of dogma and Doctrine. But, these rigidities often end up remaining the same just for the stubborn fact that they already are accepted. Some things have a generally beneficial purpose and a life that simply becomes obsolete at a point when a better way becomes evident.

Christ Himself is an example of this adapting nature.

When this happens, the Holy Spirit creates a "work-around." Then over a period of time, the previous viewpoints are quietly disposed of in order to proceed.

For instance, the RCC finally admitted the correctness of the astronomy of Galileo Galilei, vindicating him nearly 500 years after placing him under house arrest for heresy.

Peace and Blessings to you, Brother. I am glad the RCC has selected a new pope. He appears to be very bright and well-qualified to lead.

I so appreciate your post. It reinforces my experiences in churches not my own where I have felt welcomed and comfortable. Our common center is Christ and in this we can rejoice. I am hopeful that this pope will pull the Catholic Church out of the muck it has put itself in by the poor choices of our hierarchy. We all, Catholic, TEC etc. should pray for him as he has a heavy burden to bear.
Peace to to Rev. Ken

He said, "My yoke is easy and my burden is light."

Every person, including the pope, has this saying to consider. This man Francis/Jorge is an interesting person. He appears to enjoy the simplicity of being a Christian with very little pretense.

Taking the name of Francis os Assisi is very telling of this pope's sense of humility and closeness to the poor. It warmed my heart when I heard he rejected the papal limo so he could travel back to his hotel with the rest of the cardinals on the bus. I sense the status quo at the Vatican are on edge and for good reason.

LOL!!!!....

Yes, it died,... for a few who could not accept that the Holy Spirit continues to reveal a new and better Way!

However, for the rest of us and the tens of thousands and eventually millions who are constantly being reborn in the Spirit, the changes are essential to living in the Way of Christ.

The Episcopal Church is committed to this Way and Life that we know in Spirit and in the Teachings of Christ Jesus. We are doing just fine. Thank you very much.

I am a liberal Anglican, I do like the liturgical style of worship and catholic tradition of our communion, but I do not like those in our church who oppose gays and gay marriage. After all our communion broke away from the Vatican so King Henry could have a divorce, which the bible prohibits (Luke 16:18)... Yet many conservative Anglicans oppose gay marriage on scriptural reference, but yet our church was founded on divorce! Ironic huh? For me our church (and all Christian churches) must come to see that Christ died for ALL our sins, even the sin of homosexuality, so how can they condemn gays? Remember in the bible, Jesus said to the men who sought to stone an adultress, "...let he who has no sin throw the first stone..." So how can a church who is not sinless condemn sinners, for they are throwing the first stone at gays for their sin, yet every church and it's leader has their own sin!
