Read about the great news here.
February 3rd, A. D., St. Blaise
Peace brothers and sisters in Christ!
Hope you are all doing well in this New Year, as we remember also our bishops who passed away in the last five years.
It is Christ the Light of the Nations we celebrated yesterday, that will bring a new Spring to the Universal Church, and our Church, the ECCC has gained momentum and respect by many Roman Catholic movements as they see in us a valued partner to continue for Church reforms.
As Consultor on the Catholic Reform Movement, including members as Hans Kung, etc. of the board, I will be in Rome prior to the worldwide Synod, and we look forward meeting Pope Francis in order to foster the Dialog for Reforms.
If you have a moment, would you consider to sign the letter for Pope Francis as many around the world doing it right now.
Here is the link. The line, "the voices of the faithful..." was my recommendation for the letter :o)
Please share it with others as well.
It needs to be signed before February 7th.
Please copy the link below, and put in to google and the letter will appear.
Thank you all!!!

"Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, president of the Pontifical Council for the Family and the official promoter of the Cause of the Archbishop Romero of San Salvador, made the announcement in a homily on 20 April, just a few hours after a meeting with Pope Francis.
The archbishop, who was preaching at a Mass in the town of Molfetta, to mark the 20th anniversary of the death of the diocese’s Bishop Antonio Bello, said: “Today, the anniversary of the death of Don Tonino, the cause for the beatification of Archbishop Romero was unblocked.”
The monsignor who spearheaded the saint-making process for El Salvador's slain Archbishop Oscar Romero said Wednesday it was Pope Benedict XVI — and not Pope Francis — who removed the final hurdle in the tortured, 35-year process.Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia told reporters Benedict "gave the green light." Speaking a day after Francis declared that Romero died as a martyr for the faith, Paglia said Romero's beatification would likely be within a few months in San Salvador.
Bunag, for his part, posted a comment on Amamangpangs post threatening to file charges against him and Pascua if they did not retract their statements. [Wow! Like the MILF talking about peace when they massacre policemen, no? Ironic.]If you want to Google those "bishop's" names. Go ahead. I'm warning you.
"I would like to clarify that I am NOT a fake priest. I have legal and ecclesiastical documents to prove. That my present bishop is NOT Ramzi Musallam, but Bishop Shimmun-Artemus Bar Kepha under Archbishop Levi Bar Kepha of the Ancient Apostolic and Catholic Church of the East," [the who???] "Bunag said on his post also denying that he concelebrated mass at the installation of Archbishop Lavarias.
