We are One who Won
It's a win/win situation when we all work together. Imagine if one leg wanted to go one way and the other--the other.
Read 1Cor. 12:12-14,24-27
This reading is so apropos to what's going on right now. On Tues. Oct. 21, 2009, it was announced by Cardinal Levada and Archbishop DiNoia, from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, that the Traditional Anglican Communion, from around the world, were seeking unity with Rome, and are going to be brought into communion with the Catholic Church.
This is the largest Protestant group to have ever come back home. We will all be richer for the union of faith traditions brought together.
Now Zenit announces that Bishop Tichon, from the Bulgarian Orthodox Church is in discussion with Rome. "We must find unity as soon as possible and finally celebrate together," L'Osservatore Romano reported. "People don't understand our divisions and our discussions,"
Bishop Tichon said that "the theological dialogue that is going forward in these days in Cyprus is certainly important, but we should not be afraid to say that we must find as soon as possible the way to celebrate together."
"A Catholic will not become an Orthodox and vice versa, but we must approach the altar together," he added.
Let us pray that God's will prevail.
