Where’s the Reformation now?February 24, 2009 at 3:39 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 13 Comments
I found this brief article by Glenn Davies on sydneyanglicans.net.
“It was reported in the Church of England Newspaper (6 February 2009) that over 1500 people attended a Roman Catholic Mass which was celebrated in York Minster in January to mark the achievements of a Yorkshire Roman Catholic woman, Mary Ward, whose three uncles had died in the Gunpowder Plot of 1605.
York Minster is arguably the second most significant Anglican Church in England, being the Cathedral of the Archbishop of York.
Does it not strike you as strange that the great Reformation truths which were hammered out in the 16th century could be so blatantly set aside by the celebration of a Roman Catholic Mass in the Church of England? ”
