Hospital, Church, Gun

I didn't go to the range today, but I did get my Father (via ambulance) to the ICU (Intensive Care Unit) at Methodist Hospital in Dallas this morning. It looks as though he's had a stroke and wasn't really conscious when I left to go back to the country. Difficult.

On a different theme, Pope Benedict announced a new 'structure' to receive Anglican converts into the Roman Church. Interesting news for those who want reunion with the Holy See; I think Virtueonline has the best coverage if you want to read more. Evidently the Archdruid of Canterbury, the Sharia endorsing Rowan Williams, learned about the latest popish plot at a rather late date. Well, there's nothing like being on top of the news.

Speaking of which, Boy Bishop Jefferts Schori, leader of the pelosian Episcopals, has put the boot into Bishop Keith Ackerman. He's been 'inhibited' for 'renouncing his orders' and 'abandonment of ministry', as announced at yesterday's press conference. He's done neither; he has stood for the Faith, Order and Morals of the undivided Church and made the mistake of accepting part time work (he's retired) with the Diocese of Bolivia. Well there it is, another Christian given a mauling by atheistical modern liberal humanists - masquerading as Bishops.

So here's a picture of a gun to cheer myself up.

Thanks to all who've wished my Father well.

Shoot the Lee.

I hope your father has a full recovery and I will keep him in my prayers.

So what do you think of the Vatican gambit?

LSP said...

Thanks SBW & FOUTSC - I really appreciate the thoughts + prayers.

Viz. Vatican: haven't taken the time to read all the detail, but it looks like an extension/reinforcement of the existing Pastoral Provision - and with a degree of autonomy.

I think its quite generous from Rome's point of view - we'll see how many Anglicans actually go for it. My guess is not that many in the US - maybe quite a few in the UK. But more on that later.

God bless.

Hugs sent your way again today LSP, if you put that gun away long enough for a hug that is! ;-)

May God be with you and your father not only today but always.

Sorry to hear about your dad. We'll keep your him in our prayers.

But "Archdruid of Canterbury" is awesome.

LSP said...

Thanks Darlin & Borepatch - the prayers mean a lot.

Rowan Williams - what a druid.

Sorry to hear about your father, LSP. You (and your family) and in my thoughts.
