A Stand of Conscience

By Fr. Wilson (articles ) | Oct 02, 2003

Kudos to the Bishop of St Augustine, Florida. Reading about the inane comments of Frank Griswold, the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, on the current turmoil within his denomination over the toleration of blessings of homosexual unions and the election of a homosexual bishop, he decided to withdraw an invitation to Florida Episcopalians to hold the consecration of their new bishop in one of the St Augustine Catholic churches. That's heartening news.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Well, yes good for the Bishop of St. Augustine. However, I am confused. Why was an invitation offered in the first place for Episcopalians to ordain a bishop in a Catholic Church? Don't they have churches of their own. It's good the invitation was rescinded but why was it issued in the first place?
