The Tide....

Sent via e-mail :[think it's from the 'Crunchy Con' blog]















15 years ago if you would have told me that:
+ the Latin Mass would be freed up to be celebrated by any Roman priest,
+ that the Fraternity of Saint Peter would be packed to the gills with
seminarians,
+ or that they would even BUILD a seminary, + or that other seminaries would expand,
+ or the student population at the local sem would double,




+ or that I would be able to name 2 dozen GROWING, HABIT-WEARING religious
orders filled with bright-young things under 35
+ or that 4 Episcopal bishops would become Catholic in one year
+ or that in the course of three or four years 25+ top theologians and
respected Lutheran and Episcopal clergy would become Catholic
+ or that a group of traditionlists in Brazil would be brought back en masse
with a personal prelature
+ or that the president of the Evangelical Theological Society would return
to the Catholic Church





+ or that "Roe" of "Roe" v. Wade would become a Catholic and a pro-life
activist
+ or 500+ Anglican ministers worldwide and well over 1000 notable
non-Catholics of the Evangelical stripe (ministers, authors, theologians) would join
the Catholic Church
If you would have told me some or any of that 15 years ago, I would have told
you to quit smoking crack, sober up and come down to reality.
