Te Deum Laudamus
Oh what a great day and now we have some real oecumenical good news from Rome no less! Our own church refuses us the only pastoral care we need, that is a replacement PAB(flying bishop) and Rome gives us the possibility of the full sacramental care of an orthodox bishop we so desperately need and asked for but re-united with the See of St Peter! Moving towards that unity to which we all aspire. A life raft has been sent out! A bridge has been specially constructed for Catholic Anglicans leading across the river Tevere! What a disgrace that we could not have the same oecumenical magnanimity in our own church. Injustice will be righted, we will be able to 'consider our position' after all! Praise God and many prayers to come that we may fulfill God's plan for each and every one of us, whatever that may be and wherever that may lead us. At last we can turn our sleeping and waking hours to the urgent task of spreading His good news to those who do not yet know Him without getting stuck in the cloying mess and mud of church politics. Today is a truly liberal and liberating event of monumental importance to these islands of Britain. Hooray!
