Pray for unity.

I haven't commented on the recent Anglican church's situation because I am rather ignorant of the entire Church of England/Anglican/Episcopalian/etc ordering.

So, I'm referring to Fr. Dwight Longnecker's blog since he has a great deal of knowledge and experience in Anglicanism, Catholicism, and the conversion from the former to the latter.

But seeing the Providential situation within the Church of England, let us pray that those who still hold the Christian faith will leave the continually self-destructing situation they are in and seek unity with Rome.

There was an interesting post over at the Corner at National Review Online today about the Anglican situation.

I have read several remarks today stating that the Anglican Church basically has three groups these days: the "progressives," the Anglo-Catholics, and the evangelicals. Obviously, the Anglo-Catholics are the greatest prospect for returning to the fold.

Unfortunately, I also hear thay are the smallest.

That would not surprise me, though I suspect that their numbers are larger in the US and UK than they are elsewhere. I get the impression, though, that the African bishops who have been taking the lead in the fight against the ECUSA are squarely in the evangelical camp, so it is that voice in the opposition to which the disaffected are going to rally most.

By the way, there are reports that some Catholics in England who wish they were Episcopalians are using disinformation to discourage Anglo-Catholics from converting.
