Consecrations of Very Rev. Carl Reid and Rev. Craig Botterill February 14, 2007

Posted by Ninja Clement in General.

On January 27, the Anglican Catholic Church of Canada received two new suffragan bishops to oversee parishes in Central and Atlantic Canada. The now Bishop Carl Reid of the Cathedral of the Annunciation in Ottawa and Bishop Craig Botterill of the Parish of St. Aidan in Halifax get to don purple warrior robes and wield bo staffs (with that funny hook on the end of the stick). Anglo-Catholic ninja Michael Trolly has a picture on his personal blog.  You can see the bishop elects receiving their new patrol orders from Archbishop of the Traditional Anglican Communion John Hepworth, while ninja Trolley looks on with serious approval at the bottom.  After the service, Ninja Trolly tried to fly with his cape.

“ALMIGHTY God, who by thy Son Jesus Christ didst give to thy holy Apostles many excellent gifts, and didst charge them to feed thy flock: Give grace, we beseech thee, to all Bishops, the Pastors of thy Church, that they may diligently preach thy Word, and duly administer the godly discipline thereof; and grant to the people, that they may obediently follow the same; that all may receive the crown of everlasting glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. ”

– The Collect for the Consecration of a Bishop, Book of Common Prayer (1962 Canada)

The Anglo-Catholic ninja cannot have a life as we understand it. He is a full-time, highly dedicated assassin. He must give up digital TV, iPOD nanos, chips and dip and other indulgences, as these are but distractions in his quest to attain a pure soul. At that point, he becomes one with his weapon (in my case, the thurible), and that indeed is real life.
