Coming Home

A press release from the House of Bishops of the Anglican Church in America, the American Province of the Traditional Anglican Communion:
Orlando, FL – 1 pm EST – Bp. George Langberg

Released by the House of Bishops of the Anglican Church in America, Traditional Anglican Communion 3 March 2010

We, the House of Bishops of the Anglican Church in America of the Traditional Anglican Communion have met in Orlando, Florida, together with our Primate and the Reverend Christopher Phillips of the “Anglican Use” Parish of Our Lady of the Atonement (San Antonio, Texas) and others.

At this meeting, the decision was made formally to request the implementation of the provisions of the Apostolic Constitution Anglicanorum cœtibus in the United States of America by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.
This is welcome news for the Catholic Church; the infusion of enthusiastic traditionalist Anglo-Catholics into her ranks, while certain to cause conniptions among liberal bishops and aging post-Vatican II reformers, will be a godsend toward restoring proper liturgy and music to Holy Church.

The effect on the Episcopal Church, however, should be minimal since most traditionalist Anglo-Catholics have already left.

Thanks to Christian Campbell at The Anglo-Catholic.
