Pope announces plans for Anglicans to convert en masse


The Vatican has announced that Pope Benedict is setting up special provision for Anglicans, including married clergy, who want to convert to Rome together, preserving aspects of Anglican liturgy. They will be given their own pastoral supervision, according to this press release from the Vatican.

First Things comments:

This is very big. If this reconnection is well-facilitated, we may see the entire African arm of the Church of England (which is currently its most vibrantly-growing branch) cross the Tiber, and that will be a very interesting development, especially as Catholics are exposed to the Anglican-use liturgy, which will remind many of everything they loved about the Latin mass, but in the glorious language of the Anglican liturgy.

Mercy Forever


World Relief and Human Care has put together a special section of the LCMS web site about the healthcare “reform” debate.  The site should help readers engage in the debate and find useful information about the areas of moral concern (abortion, end of life care, and ethics) that Christians can—and should– monitor.  They have create a continually-updated repository of information that is free from political rhetoric and only focuses on those specifically moral areas where the church is called to give leadership —according to the Lutheran doctrine of the 2 kingdoms.  It also gives opportunity to allow Matt  Harrison lead the reader through some catechizing on the role of the church in the public square and included a quick video of him doing this.
