I pray these two brave Bishops and Priests and all who go to Rome will be strengthened and made ready to battle afresh the forces of darkness. They are not leaving the battle or finding safe haven in a pristine and blameless, perfect or only true church.

The deceptions, hiddenness and duplicity of the enemy, the forces of agenda and political power-mongering, anti-christ, human willfulness, disoriented identity and desires are as present and at work in Roman Catholicism as in the Anglican branch but in catholicism they are subtle and covert.

May the Lord be their fortress and high tower, their rock and redeemer, their ark and safe harbor. Amen
