Drop-outs in Episcopal hierarchy suggest deepening crisis

The Right Reverend Jeffrey N. Steenson, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of the Rio Grande, has asked the House of Bishop to allow him to resign, and he has said he believes the Roman Catholic church is the “true home of Anglicanism.”

The most thorough article I’ve seen so far regarding Steenson appears at SantaFeNewMexican.com, at this link: http://www.santafenewmexican.com/news/69148.html .

Another story from the Houston Chronical is here: http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/ap/tx/5162837.html  .

The SantaFeNewMexican.com article also said, “Two other Episcopal bishops, one from Albany, N.Y., and another from Fort Worth, Texas, joined the Catholic Church this year after their retirements.”
