Perspective on the Rome Deal

Good posting over at O God, come to my assistance. Read the full posting:

Believe it or not, there are some of us Anglo-Catholics who are Anglican on purpose – even Episcopalian.  I am an Anglican because of the historic appeal to Scripture, reason, and canon law.*  I am an Anglican because of our venerable liturgical tradition.  I am an Anglican because of the via media.**  I’m an Anglican because I hold Anglicanism to be one part of the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church but cannot stomach any claim by any ecclesial body to be the only part of it.  I am an Anglican because I believe that all the baptized are welcome to receive communion.  I am an Anglican because though I have a strong Marian devotion, pray for the dead daily as part of the Guild of All Souls, and find benediction of the blessed sacrament a powerful devotional experience I do not demand everyone do so.  I am Anglican because I place much value in living a life of common prayer, but do not equate common with sameness.

Well put!
