Meditation: Help!

I have a dilemma, and I need your HELP.

As you may be aware. I studied 7 years to be a Roman Catholic Franciscan priest.  and served as a deacon for 35 years in the Archdiocese in Miami.  When i stated in private conversation, the church could ordain women, the archbishop suspended me.

Saint Benedict’s Episcopal church received me with open arms in March 2014, and the archbishop wrote a friend that I was excommunicated. He never informed me.

Now, to my dilemma.  I still have many wonderful friends at Saint Maurice Roman Catholic Church, some of whom attend our Saint Benedict’s  Bible Experience on Wednesday evenings at 7:30.  This question I propose to you:  Should I invite the people of Saint Maurice to cross religious lines to attend this wonderful new church, or just try to forget them?  I would greatly appreciate your input.

  1. Those of us who love you will love you no matter where you are or how you got there. You do not need to invite your friends from St. Maurice to follow you to any church you choose to attend or do service with. Those who choose to follow, will follow. It does not mean you are not still loved. Rosemary Grubbe
