It's official. The Catholic Knight is retired.  I'm hanging up the helmet and passing the torch. There will be no more articles, no more commentaries, no more calls to action. THIS BLOG IS CLOSED. I've spent a very long time thinking about this, I believe the time has come, and is a bit overdue.  I want to thank my readers for everything, but most especially for your encouragement and your willingness to go out there and fight the good fight. So, that being the case, I've spend the last several weeks looking for bloggers who are fairly active, and best represent something akin to the way I think and what I believe.  I recommend the following blogs for my readers to bookmark and check on regularly. Pick one as your favourite, or pick them all. They are all great..... In His Majesty's Service, THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT

Vatican Letter To Traditional Anglican Communion (TAC)


THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: Context is as follows. The Traditional Anglican Communion (TAC) wrote a letter to the Vatican last year stating that they sought a way to be fully incorporated into the Catholic Church, and asked for recommendations on how to best go about that. While I don't speak Vaticanese, I will offer my humble translation to the best of my ability. I believe this Vatican letter says something to the extent of "Don't worry, we haven't forgotten about you, and we do take you seriously. Sit tight and wait for the dust to settle from the Lambeth Conference. We'll get back to you just as soon as we can." In my opinion, if the Vatican had no intention of allowing a corporate conversion of entire parishes into the Catholic Church, it would have simply responded quickly to that extent, and directed the TAC to pursue individual conversions. In my opinion, the delay in response indicates the Vatican has something else in mind - something more profound and historic. But that is just my opinion.
