Reformed Churchmen

We are Confessional Calvinists and a Prayer Book Church-people. In 2012, we remembered the 350th anniversary of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer; also, we remembered the 450th anniversary of John Jewel's sober, scholarly, and Reformed "An Apology of the Church of England." In 2013, we remembered the publication of the "Heidelberg Catechism" and the influence of Reformed theologians in England, including Heinrich Bullinger's Decades. For 2014: Tyndale's NT translation. For 2015, John Roger, Rowland Taylor and Bishop John Hooper's martyrdom, burned at the stakes. Books of the month. December 2014: Alan Jacob's "Book of Common Prayer" at: January 2015: A.F. Pollard's "Thomas Cranmer and the English Reformation: 1489-1556" at: February 2015: Jaspar Ridley's "Thomas Cranmer" at:

2 July. 1662 Book of Common Prayer. Day of Remembrance: Visitation of Virgin Mary.

2 July. 1662 Book of Common Prayer.  Day of Remembrance: Visitation of Virgin Mary.

We surely remember and honor the visitation of Mary.  We respect and honor her as the mother of the God-man, Jesus, fully God and fully man.  But, we repudiate the Romishness of her contributing a lick to our salvation.  Still less do we note her intercession or reconciliation of her Son to us.  Romish poop. Note well that Tractaholics in the Whaa-Anglican Church of North America not only tolerates this, but tolerates this wickedness by “Bishops.”  Again, Mary is the blessed Virgin Mother, bearer of the God-man, who shall forever remained honored amongst us, but not as the Romanists, even Greeks, and those odious Tractaphiles and necromancers.

Visitation of Virgin Mary, that is, to Elisabeth (Luke i. 39). A late festival, instituted by Urban VI. in 1389, during the great schism, and confirmed at the Council of Basle (1431), in order "that she, being honoured, might reconcile her Son by her intercession, and grant peace and amity among the faithful." -- July 2nd.
