The Anglicans up the Road

I don't understand the poor Anglicans up the road. Here is an extract from their parish bulletin on the 20th August:

SAINTS’/HOLY DAYS THIS WEEK
20th.: St. Bernard, priest, abbot and doctor of the Church (1090-1153);
21st.: St. Pius, bishop and ascetic (1835-1914);
22nd.: The Queenship of the B.V.M.;
23rd.: St. Rose of Lima, virgin and religious, the first saint of the Americas, patron of South America (1586-1617);
24th.: St. Bartholomew, apostle (first century);
25th.: St. Louis (the ninth), king of France and pious layman (1214-1270);
St. Joseph Calasanz, priest and founder, patron of Christian schools (1550-1648);

Not pope, but a saint all the same... Must avoid the rotten 'P' word. They use the same 'Living Word' supplement as do some parishes around the diocese. This week the Anglicans are celebrating the feasts of The Little Flower and St Faustina! I think I will invite them to the Christus Rex Pilgrimage. P-p-popery! Priestcraft doesn't seem too objectionable, though.

In another news, please pray for Senator Natasha Stott Despoja, who is one of the violent driving forces against life in this country. This poor afflicted woman has suffered an ectopic pregnancy. By the grace of God, may this tiny human life open her eyes and bend her heart.

Finally, I think my life is at an 'ut' clause. Do this... 'So that...' :)

I don't know about the Anglican up the road from you (who are following the 1970 Calendar) but the Anglicans in Loxton celebrated S. Jeanne Francis Fremoit de Chantal that day according to the 1962 Calendar.

The Anglo-Catholics like the trappings of tradition - they like the bells, smells and vestments but it is all a game to them - an elaborate ritualised fancy dress party.

The use of Catholic saints in the calendar is just an extension of this.

I have nothing against Anglicans as people, many of my friends are Anglo-Catholics but we serve no-ones interests by condoning or indulging in such activity. Better to seek their conversion to the true faith. For if they truly believe what they claim to believe in then that is the only logical step for them.

Good call re: Stott Despoija.
