  1. I am not surprised with TAC going Roman myself. This has been coming. Again, this is to Rome’s new Anglican rite or offer. I call it an Anglican rite myself. English or Anglican Catholics in communion with Rome. I have, after much thought, time and prayer decided not to go this route myself. The Church seems to my mind, both Catholic & Reformed. I was raised Irish R. Catholic, and even went with the Benedictines when I was younger for awhile. (Many good memories), but also many struggles with the papacy or papal doctrines.

    But God Bless those that can with clear heart and conscience, go with Rome. They have many great historic saints, both those canonized and not. And I will say it again, I love the man, John Henry Newman! But he was a great Anglican Christian before he went to Rome.
