Catholic orders, Anglican patrimony
Father Robinson. May God Richly bless you and all you put your hands to do!
As a "Rad Trad" I am naturally going to disagree with a lot of what you have said.
Personally though I would always prefer to focus on what we agree on. In that spirit I wish you every blessing in your new ministry.
God bless you, Father Robinson
God speed, good and faithful servant.
Congratulations and thank you for writing this.
Theologically, I struggle to fit into the denominations. I’ve started calling myself an orthodox catholic Anglican.
I see myself as part of the orthodox Church in England and have a catholic perspective.
There is one Church in England. We may have different styles, but we are One.
Congratulations, Father! God bless you!
Well said, Father Robinson! For the unity of the Church!
Warmest congratulations on your ordination. I'm a Roman Catholic, who attends both Novus Ordo and Latin Masses, and have very little time for the current Vatican incumbent. We've had many bad popes, but this one seems hell-and I use the word advisedly- bent on destruction of the Church he's been entrusted to guide. This article was an important help to understand Catholic Anglicanism. Our English Martyrs, like St Oliver Plunkett whose feast day was this Sunday may may not entirely agree with your thesis, but those days are long past. Our Western society is in such a mess, that we don't have the luxury of infighting.
Best wishes for your ministry.
Dear Father Robinson, congratulations!!! As a Roman Catholic faithful to Our Lord Jesus Christ I am full of admiration for your journey, your stand and how grace has worked in your life. True Christians follow and worship Jesus in spirit and truth, and all is grace. Only grace allows us to understand God's revelation to the Church and to our personal lives. May we all grow in the love of Christ to be worthy to serve Him to the glory of God and for the salvation of souls. God bless you!
Praying for you. Congratulations
Congratulations, Fr. Calvin. I don't agree with all of your theology, but I also believe that unity in the church is an essential goal.
I would take issue with how you framed the Reformation, since Luther and others did not leave the Catholic church, but were kicked out. I don't see how they had much of a choice in "leaving Rome."
But perhaps that's better left for another time. For now, congratulations.
Thank you - that was fascinating. What a clear explanation of a rather complex state of affairs.
Congratulations and best wishes!
Good grief Calvin...heavy duty reading. The best of luck.
Amen! May the Lord bless you and your ministry- great to read your post - appreciate your heart and clarity- I love the pursuit of unity of all believers to reflect Him more fully in our world today - your brother in Kentucky is praying for you!
Congratulations brother. We need more priests in the trenches living the faith. Armed with the cross and the rosary let us save souls by bringing them to Christ. Wonderful explanation of our journey. Strive for the faith. Deus Vult.
Also, wonderful picture at the end of a beautiful catholic family. Forgive the pride, they are my parishioners here at St Charles King and Martyr. Know we in St Charles (Huntsville, Alabama) are praying for you and your ministry.
God Bless you Fr. Robinson!
