Thanks for that story. Let's all pray for it to be one that helps bring souls back to the Catholic Church. There is one Episcopalian man I have in mind and ask your prayers. I just sent the story to him through his wife. If he does convert I'll give him the warning about problems in our own Church and how to persevere. Confession is really the biggest obstacle for him right now, so focus prayer there, please. Many thanks. In His Mercy...

We do need to watch out. We have many good nuns who do valuable work, but for some reason there are some who have just gone batty. My wife attended an RCIA class with her friend, and the new nun just hired by our parish came into the class and started going off on some tangent about how we should pray to the "god of the east", and north, south, and west too, and some bear. The catechist, needless to say, was quite chagrined, and had to issue a disclaimer. She wasn't even supposed to be there

Patriot is right. Their problem IS our problem. The pagans infesting the Episcopalian sect are bedfellows with pagans infesting the Church. No one to blame except ourselves! If someone with "credentials" says something outlandish to a Catholic in the pew, most of the time the Catholic just sits there and "takes it."

That was a truly fascinating article! And your can bet the family farm that it is not limited to Episcopalians, but is occurring on the shadowy left of the Catholic Church, albeit with a bit more discretion. Some of our religious women's orders have been primed for this since the 1970s. I saw approximations in the early 1980s, although the women were very careful not to intone any of the infanticidal females deities. I'll have to keep a closer watch on Sr. X, our pastoral associate.
