Ruins


Could it be? The Church of England is imploding?

News is that they have said it is theologically correct to ordain women as bishops. Catholic News Agency has the full story. Actually they said it was "theologically justified".

Truth be told, it seems most mainline Churches who have embraced apostacy are disintegrating, while traditional Catholicism is entering a 'new flowering' a 'new spring time' as foretold by John Paul II.

In an op-ed for yesterday's Los Angeles Times, Charlotte Allen wrote a wonderful piece on the collapse of liberal Christianity in the post-modern era. Citing everything from the acceptance of gay marriage to women bishops. It is an insightful read. She refers to what is happening as the "melt-down of liberal Christianity". She's dead on! Read it here, "Liberal Christianity is paying for it's sins."

    Yesterday's post on the grace of compunction and today's reading from Hosea compelled me to take the orations for tears from the Roman Missal at Mass today:

    COLLECT

    Almighty and most gentle God,
    who when your people thirsted
    drew living water out of a rock,
    draw tears of compunction from our stony hearts,
    giving us grace to lament our sins
    and fitting us to receive your merciful forgiveness.
    Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
    who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
    God, forever and ever.

    PRAYER OVER THE OFFERINGS

    Look with favour, we beseech you, Lord, upon the offerings
    we present to your majesty on account of our sins,
    that, by the grace of the Holy Spirit,
    this sacrifice from which pardon flows as from a fountain
    may bestow the gift of tears for our offenses.
    Through Christ our Lord.

    PRAYER AFTER COMMUNION

    May the reverent reception of your sacrament, O Lord,
    wash away the stains of our sins with sighings and tears
    and, by your grace, obtain for us the pardon we desire.
    Through Christ our Lord.

    Have known more than one person who has left these man-made churches with their made-up rules.

    One is now a married Catholic priest, God bless him!
