Unity Under Mary

Unity Under Mary from Christian Research Network:

One more symbolic step toward Anglicans and Roman Catholics reuniting

Anglicans Keep Lourdes Anniversary by Simon Caldwell of Church Times:
EIGHT Church of England bishops are together planning to make an unprecedented group pilgrimage to the Roman Catholic shrine of Lourdes on the 150th anniversary of the reported appearances of the Blessed Virgin Mary to St Bernadette.

…for the first time, the Society of Mary, one of the Church of England’s Catholic Societies, has organized a pilgrimage for a large group of Anglican bishops, along with about 400 lay worshippers…

…the Revd Graeme Rowlands, said that the purpose of the visit was to help to fulfill the “Christian unity mission” of the Lourdes 150th-anniversary jubilee year.
