The fruit of 100 years of prayer

One hundred years ago last Friday, an Anglican religious order (yes, the Anglicans do have religious orders) was received into the Catholic Church in its entirety . The Franciscan Friars and Sisters of the Atonement was the first group to be received into the Church while maintaining “their original name, their original religious habit and their original mission”. For 100 years they have been praying for a deeper unity between the Catholic Church and the Anglican communion, and many see the pope’s recent announcement of a “fast-track” for other Anglican groups to join the Church as a fruit of that prayer.
Do not ever forget the power of prayer!
