Anglican priest Jeffrey Steel and his family have decided to cross the Tiber as he announced yesterday on his blog. Really quite a beautiful post and well worth reading in full. One part that really struck me.
Finally, this leads me to my vocation to the priesthood and the cura animarum. I realise that I do not come to the Church making demands. I come offering my life to Jesus and to the Church as I seek his will for my life. For the time being, I am simply giving up being the teacher and am now becoming the student of Mother Church. What she does with me is in the best interest of her and God’s kingdom. As I said, the family is preparing to move to London in the near future to begin a new life of ministry and service. There will be more details forthcoming as things become confirmed to me.
So give him an welcome and pray for him and his family as they make this transition.
