When You Convert…

by Rev. A. J. Iovine

I laughed when I read that the Roman Catholic Church is moving to allow fallen-away Anglicans who are upset at their church for allowing gays in their clergy ranks to come home to mother church to keep their liturgical worship rites they used as Anglicans.

Pope Benedict XVI approved a new church provision that will allow Anglicans to convert while maintaining many of their distinctive spiritual and liturgical traditions, Cardinal William Levada, the Vatican’s chief doctrinal official, told a news conference Tuesday.

Essentially, Anglicans will have to convert to Catholicism, but then they are allowed to keep their liturgy and worship style.

To me, this doesn’t make much sense.

If an Anglican converts to Catholicism, then they are no longer Anglican, but Roman Catholic.
