Patriarchate, Affiliated Organisations Continue to Serve in Pandemic Humanitarian Crisis

By Jean DuBois

FIRENZE-NUOVA ROMA 12 February 2021 (NRom)

From the very beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Anglican Patriarchate, Stato Pontificio (Pontifical States) was there to help those in need. The Patriarchate was already on the cutting edge of technology use as a force multiplier in the ministry, and other jurisdictions quickly followed. Meanwhile our chaplains continued to provide spiritual help and sacraments even as governments were cracking down on the rights of the Church and many churches were timidly giving in to pressure. Clergy and officials traveled to where they were needed. Even ordinations took place as scheduled. 

As governments locked down their nations, plunging their people into chaos, poverty, and despair, the Pontifical States (Anglican Patriarchate), secular heir to St. Peter the Apostle, remained a beacon of light and hope for the world. As governments and many institutions opted to let the virus and the prevention of that virus dictate policy and rule their lives, the Church continued firm in the wisdom of the faith of Christ.  

The members of our humanitarian wing, the Walsingham Guard, and other affiliated organizations around the world were at the forefront of pandemic service. That includes medical service and support, COVID testing, humanitarian aid, policy work, advocacy for the poor and vulnerable, and more. Those efforts are ongoing as the economic, social, and broad health fallout from the pandemic and government responses to the pandemic continue to rage on. 

And, as the pandemic has resulted in religious leaders caving in to modern social trends and the socialist oligarchs threatening the world with a new Marxism through their "Great Reset," the Patriarchate continues to promote traditional Catholicism as unwavering guardians of the faith. The Stato Pontificio (Pontifical States) have over 1000 years of history dedicated to service to God, the Holy Church, and all humanity. Following the words of Christ Ut unum sint (that they may all be one), it is not only the historic representative of over 400 million people globally, but is one of the most authentically diverse organizations in the modern world. The dedicated work of each and every cleric, lay official, and member around the world follows the example of Christ in humble, servant leadership to those in need.
