MSS / No. 14
She is definitely smiling at this news.Meanwhile, the dissenting left is having fits & doing their best to spin this rather than face facts. I just had a thought, how about an even trade with the Anglican community. We get the traditional Anglicans, they can have the LCWR, Fr. McBrien & Cardinal Mahony as well as the staffs of America & the National Catholic Reporter. I think the Catholic Church would get the bettr of this deal.
The trade sounds like a great deal to me as well.
Speaking personally, I'd like to get back both the stolen souls and the stolen churches and monasteries and other properties. There is, alas, no undoing of the incalculable human damage caused by destroying the institutions that provided for the sick and needy.P.S. Is that statue of Our Lady of Walsingham a true replica of the one that was destroyed in the 16th century?
Anita, I am in total agreement with you regarding the property issue. And it looks like, if anything is reacquired, it is going to be a long road. See article from UK's leftist paper The Guardian: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/oct/23/apostolic-consitution-anglican-clergy-conversion-catholicismYes, "incalculable damage"... but all will be resolved in the end, m'lady.Quite sure the statue is a true replica at "The Slipper Chapel" in Norfolk. Got image from one of those "wiki" thingy-ma-jigy sites.
