This method is killing souls. Why does Iglesia Nueva hate my people? Why does the New Evangelization sound like old indifference and no evangelization?

They've had 50 freaking years to pull their heads out, claiming exit when pushing deeper will not stop this problem.

I just went to an Anglican use Mass last week. They got the message. Sorry if it isn't up to your standards.

The Anglican use folks had to sneak in the back door because our churchmen didn't think it was ecumenical for them to convert.THAT is the New Evangilization.

And why, rather than PUBLICLY thanking God for these souls coming back home, and using the occasion to invite other groups outside the Church to convert, do our Churchmen act embarrassed and apologetic for it? "Oh thank you for understanding about that delicate situation of the converting Anglicans ... we promise we had nothing to do with it" ... that was the gist of it and the message to the world.

This can't go on much longer. I really don't think it can.
Unitatis Redintegratio says, "Nevertheless, our separated brethren, whether considered as individuals or as Communities and Churches, are not blessed with that unity which Jesus Christ wished to bestow on all those who through Him were born again into one body, and with Him quickened to newness of life - that unity which the Holy Scriptures and the ancient Tradition of the Church proclaim. For it is only through Christ's Catholic Church, which is "the all-embracing means of salvation," that they can benefit fully from the means of salvation. We believe that Our Lord entrusted all the blessings of the New Covenant to the apostolic college alone, of which Peter is the head, in order to establish the one Body of Christ on earth to which all should be fully incorporated who belong in any way to the people of God. This people of God, though still in its members liable to sin, is ever growing in Christ during its pilgrimage on earth, and is guided by God's gentle wisdom, according to His hidden designs, until it shall happily arrive at the fullness of eternal glory in the heavenly Jerusalem."

No, just no.

Enough already.
