Christ is in our midst!!

It's interesting that the video in "Pope Francis Commissions . . .," a comment was made about the blessing of homosexual relationships. The comment was that it seemed that the Anglican Church's blessing ceremony and Fiducia Supplicans release seemed to be done "in tandem." It was also noted that the rationales seemed as if Pope Francis and Abp Welby were exchanging notes.

This "commissioning" seems to have stirred up all the sides in the Church and in the Anglican Communion.

What's next? Rewriting the Catechism?

The timing is peculiar and unnerving.

And, look at how the Protestant Archbishop of Canterbury recently celebrated Anglican worship in the sanctuary of a Roman Catholic sanctuary in the Vatican City State/Rome. Now, Anglican prayer services were offered in this recent/past week in Rome within a RC sanctuary.
These are bizarre times.

The reaction and rejection to Fiducia Supplicans grows.

The head of the African Bishops Conferences, Cardinal Fridolin Ambongo Besungu of Kinshasa, Congo, went to Rome and obtained a statement exempting the entire African continent from this recent change in Catholic doctrine and practice.

It's interesting for the forceful way Cardinal Abongo made his presence known when he went to Rome.

Quote
The pope’s private secretary was informed by the cardinal, who said he went straight from the airport to Francis’ residence at the Vatican guesthouse, saying, “Tell him that I have arrived, I am in the house, and I am there only until Thursday evening, and I want to meet him before leaving because that’s what I came for.” Ambongo arrived (sic) to Francis the same day.
