WASHINGTON, DC (Catholic Online) - We have been following the journey of a number of parishes in America, including Cathedral of the Incarnation in Orlando, Florida, the home parish of the Rt. Reverend Louis Campese, Bishop Ordinary for the Diocese of the Eastern United States for the Anglican Church in America (ACA), a member of the Traditional Anglican Communion.

On Sunday, December 5, the parish voted to accept the invitation of the Holy Father and request admission to the Catholic Church through the Apostolic Constitution Anglicanorum Coetibus.

Christian Campbell, who serves as the Senior Warden of the Cathedral, told Catholic Online that while the parish has made their decision, this does not include a change in the episcopate of Bishop Campese or the functioning of the ACA Diocese of the Eastern United States. Each parish will be undertaking their own discernment and decision as will each clergy and bishop in the denomination.

On his blog, "The Anglo Catholic," Campbell published the following story about this historic decision.

"At one o'clock this afternoon of the Second Sunday in Advent, the Dean of the Cathedral of the Incarnation, Orlando, Florida, the Very Rev. Fr. Mark Siegel, the Rector's Warden, Mr. Christian Clay Columba Campbell, the Clerk of the Parish Corporation, Ms. Carla Hansen, and witness and parishioner, Mr. Joseph Koehler, certified the results of a congregational vote on a proposed Resolution that the Cathedral of the Incarnation accept the terms of the Apostolic Constitution Anglicanorum Coetibus and request admission, at the earliest possible moment, to the anticipated personal ordinariate to be erected in the United States of America.  This Resolution followed upon the unanimous approval of a similar measure by the Cathedral Chapter in September of this year.

"The congregation of the Cathedral of the Incarnation has voted overwhelmingly - 94% - in favor of the proposed Resolution, and, having achieved the two-thirds majority required under the parish bylaws, the Resolution is adopted.  The full text of the Resolution follows.

Cathedral of the Incarnation
Orlando, Florida
November 9, 2010
Dedication of the Archbasilica of the Savior
RESOLUTION OF PARISH ASSEMBLY FOR THE PURPOSE OF AFFILIATING WITH ANGLICAN PERSONAL ORDINARIATE IN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH
With profound gratitude and filial respect to the Successor of St. Peter, the Congregation of the Cathedral of the Incarnation warmly receives the Apostolic Constitution, Anglicanorum Coetibus, of His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI.

Having prayerfully considered the aforementioned papal legislation, along with its associated Complementary Norms, and with due regard for the accompanying canonical commentary by Fr. Gianfranco Ghirlanda, S.J., Rector of the Pontifical Gregorian University, (all published under the auspices of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith on November 4, 2009) and recognizing in the Holy Father's most generous response to the pleas of various Anglican groups our common desire and holy commitment to achieve the reconciliation of our small flock with the Catholic Church in a corporate fashion and with due regard to our own precious Anglican Patrimony, this Congregation now resolves:

1. that the Bishop of the Diocese of the Eastern United States, the Dean of the Cathedral, and other Officers of the Corporation, be authorized to take whatever steps may be necessary to affiliate the Cathedral of the Incarnation with the anticipated personal ordinariate to be erected in the United States of America under the terms of the Apostolic Constitution Anglicanorum Coetibus.

2. that the text of this Resolution be published immediately on the parish web site and the online journal, The Anglo-Catholic, with copies to be posted directly to the Holy Father, William Cardinal Levada, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, and the authorized liaison for the United States of America.

Making a Lenten Retreat with Pope Francis: Learning from Elijah Watch

Image of There is a mystery here, deep and profound, yet as simple as the broom tree encounter of our teacher Elijah. God is searching for men and women who will surrender their lives in love to Him in this hour. Often, it takes the depletion of all of our own efforts and resources before we are willing to give up - and give in - to Him. When we do, the life of true faith begins. It is there we learn to hear the God of surrendered love in the whisper of the wind. It is there that we learn the Faith of Elijah, under the broom tree.
