Elijah and the Ecclesial Communities

Inspired by Monday's Office of Readings my Parish Priest had a great idea to solve the problems with ecumenical dialogue, he suggested the Princes of the Church set up an altar and representatives of all the Protestant Ecclesial Communities set up an altar and each of them pray that God will set their altar alight, obviously the Catholics would call on the help of Our Lady and all the Angels and Saints and the Protestants would 'go straight to Jesus'. Whoever's altar is supernaturally lit is the one true Church and slaughters the opposing team.

What do you think?

In the light of Our Lord's remarks in Mt 5:22 and Lk 9:54-5, what grounds have you for believing that the outcome of your proposed contest would be as clear cut as you appear to imagine? A little humility on your part would not be amiss.

If I were serious I would indeed be worried about the state of my soul and its fate at the Final Judgement, however the only worry I have at the moment is for your sense of humour

Well I'm glad to hear that you have no worries for the state of your soul.

I can only assume that your recent post entitled "CofE Greater than Christ (apparently)" was likewise intended to be taken in a less than serious manner.

Or are you indulging your taste in post-modern irony?
