An Anglican bishop finds his way home

It’s very good news that Clarence Pope, the former Episcopal Bishop of Fort Worth, has come back home to the Catholic Church. He and his wife Martha had entered the Church in the mid-1990’s, but then turned back from the path and resumed their lives as Episcopalians for a time. Now, they have come home finally and for good. Perhaps the best account of the reason for their hesitant journey is found in the pages of the excellent blog, The Shrine of the Holy Whapping. After reading the story there, seeing the mishandling of the situation, it confirms that the Catholic Church really is the True Church – it must be, or it would have closed down years ago.
