An excerpt From last months Catholic Herald. It gets to the question for some.

Quote:
Hang on a second, Archbishop of Canterbury: was Miss Markle already planning to avail herself of these sacraments because she had been converted to such beliefs, or is this just a matter of form now she is marrying a royal? Surely that is a question which matters.'

Writing in The Catholic Herald, she continues: 'Had the Church taken into account the previous marriage and divorce? But that pales into insignificance beside the question of baptism and confirmation, both of which sacraments require belief and commitment.

'Where is the evidence Miss Markle would have adopted such procedures had she not been about to marry a prince of the realm . . . A wedding is holy matrimony, not just a gigantic fancy dress parade.'

I donít care that baptism and confirmation happened But I donít believe she found a Prince and Jesus at the same time. It was necessary to do it and itís been done.

That sounds like a very Roman Catholic approach to baptism and confirmation/communion.

As an Anglican I was baptised at 4 months with two godparents who never attended church with me again as long as either of them lived.

At 13 I was confirmed after 10 weeks of classes at school and took my first communion the next morning. That is the normal approach - 10 weeks of classes once a week and confirmation BEFORE taking communion.

Remember too that Anglicans don't 'go to confession' but confess in private directly to God and not to another human. It is part of the service of preparation for communion of course - and part of many other church services - but going and sitting in a room and confessing to another human isn't part of our way at all. We can 'confess our sins' to God at any time and ask for his forgiveness.

What I am pointing out are differences between Roman Catholicism and Anglicanism in the way they approach confirmation/communion.

I teach at a Church of England school and we have many students follow Meghan's approach now - baptised and confirmed/communion on the same day. Many parents don't bother getting their kids baptised anymore so when the child is 13 or 14 and wants to be confirmed they have to first of all be baptised and that short ceremony can be done on the same day as the confirmation as the confirmation is actually 'confirming' the promises made at the baptism by the godparents. These students do have the full preparation for confirmation which is what is the important part - being prepared to make the promise to live your life according to the teachings of Christ and not have some one make it for you, which is all baptism is - someone else making a promise on your behalf. 10 weeks preparation time is plenty of time in the CoE.

I think it's a case of "damned if she does and damned if she doesn't" (no deliberate pun intended!) How seriously and genuinely Meghan feels about this representation of religious commitment is a private matter that none of us can know.

The CofE has always been a broad church which includes the practice of confession. The Common Worship provision entitled "Reconciliation and Restoration" includes two forms of service for "Reconciliation of a Penitent". The ministry of reconciliation requires that what is said in confession to a priest may not be disclosed. The practice is detailed in Anglican churches overseas too such as Canada where The Book of Alternative Services of the Anglican Church of Canada states: "The secrecy of a confession of sin is morally absolute for the confessor, and must under no circumstances be broken." It was the fear and ignorance of the confessional that stoked prejudice and bigotry against The Roman church that led to such laws as on succession to the throne and marriages of the royal family.

I find myself surprisingly unsurprised that there are those that firmly believe that Meghan just popped off and got herself "done" in much the same way that wealthy parents had their babies "Christened" with no personal faith nor intention of sending their child to church let alone attending themselves.

Meghan's upbringing was basically agnostic as neither parent seems to have been a member of any church and for her to want to share that part of Harry's life is pretty natural. No big farce or lie, merely a stated intention that she wished to join Harry and honour his grandmother.

However, it is not as easy as that and Meghan found herself facing study classes with no less a person than the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby and he doesn't just punch a ticket. Had he felt Meghan insincere or unready he could have deferred her Baptism and Confirmation until or unless he believed she was ready and nobody could force his hand.

Royal Rob, you are in error. Neither Baptism nor Confirmation is a prerequisite for marrying a prince. "Judge not lest ye be judged".

I think Meghan's personal religious believes are one thing, imho, that shouldn't be questioned. Faith and religion, and ones approach to them are private, and to go onto a publication, like DM, or any other news paper, and publicly question her believes imho is extremely tacky and close minded. DM is so widely known for their christian approach to reporting anything, that it's laughable, that they print anything questioning Meghan's faith. This again is just my opinion, and not aimed to offend anyone.

Well! Well! Yet another hypocritical double standard being used by Meghan's detractors to pull her down. Now Meghan has chosen of her own free will to become a member of the CofE, something that she didn't have to do to marry Harry. I bet my cup of coffee, that if Meghan had NOT chosen to do this, these same detractors would be saying that she disrespected Harry, the church and the Queen ad head of the church!

Tell me anyone....did Kate have to provide proof of her 'genuineness' when she was confirmed shortly before marrying William? Now she is English and was baptised in the Anglican church as a child. I guess that she too only got confirmed to marry William as a future king!

Did Autumn Phillips, former Canadian Roman Catholic, had to provide proof that she was a genuine convert to Anglicanism?

The answers to these 2 questions are a resounding NO!!!

I read an article by the same Anne Widgecome as to why she is against Meghan. Hear this....it's because of Meghan's background and that she's divorced!!!!!!!!
Isn't the future King and Queen of England also divorced but engaged in an extra marital affair while married? Aren't 2 other children of the Queen divorced? Double standards at their best so I don't count this women's opinion as meaning anything!!!!!!

Actually, there was criticism of Kate and questioning how genuine she was in choosing to be confirmed before she married.

Charles and Camilla could not marry in church and had to go through the humiliation of making the general confession in their blessing ceremony - something it is unlikely Meghan will have to do as it is not part of the marriage service. I left the UK 16 years before C&C married & divorcees were being married in my C of E.

Anne married Tim in Scotland - maybe by choice but maybe so it avoided problems with the Church of England.

Meghan might be being treated unfairly but she is not the only one.

Ya'll realize don't you that the whole judge not passage is referring to the state of one's eternal salvation (heaven/hell) not their behavior on a specific issue.

Folks judge situations on a daily basis to determine if it's something good or not etc. Judgement is not automatically a negative thing.

I don't think it's on us to judge other people's sincerity, when/if they decide to join a church.

Lots of people aren't committed to any particular faith and consider one as good as another.

This might be due to Meghan's upbringing; her father belonged to one church, her mother to a different one, and the school she attended to a third.
It doesn't seem strange if she has no special attachment to any.
Well, but that's your opinion. You don't know beyond the shadow of a doubt what her religious beliefs are, or exactly how she was raised spiritually. Neither do I for certain, but I'm not going to make assumptions that her decision to be baptized and confirmed in the C of E was only a gesture. From all evidence, Meghan is a very caring person who has been committed to giving to others from an early age, with her mother passing on to her that feeling of generosity and kindness toward others. Meghan's Catholic high school teachers spoke in an ABC documentary about Meghan's deep sense of caring for people in need and praised the volunteer work she did as a teenager in her community.

We also do not have documented evidence of whether or not Meghan was raised attending church regularly. We simply do not know unless she's spoken about that aspect of her life previously in an interview or in her writings. She's definitely someone who enjoys sharing inspirational quotes and words of wisdom, and it's clear that she has a heart for encouraging other people in their endeavors.

I believe the report is true that Meghan has developed a close bond with the Archbishop. There's no reason for that to be lied about. And there's also no reason for everything that's reported about Meghan to be overly questioned and criticized in a continually negative fashion. Sure, there are things to question and to discuss, but why all the negativity and harshly critical assumptions?

Catherine was baptised at St Andrews in Bradfield, even attending the local Bradfield CoE primary school. And like many Anglicans nowadays attended on Easter and Christmas. What she didn’t do was become confirmed but she clearly had a history with the church.

So Meghan’s situation is different. We don’t if she was baptised, what the church is. Did she ever attend.

And like it or not many view as a sort of ‘jailhouse conversation’.

Buts It’s over and done with now and our very liberal Archbishop of Canterbury has given his blessing.

Well, I'm glad you know so much about the Temple. And in thanking you previously for your indication that it is not a Buddhist Temple, I was not lecturing you.

I obviously checked further into the Temple's background in order to educate myself, and I shared what I learned, since you did not elaborate in your original post after correcting my mistaken reference. Once again, I extend to you my thanks for enlightening me. For whatever reason, you can continue somehow being annoyed at my mentioning anything about it, since you already 'know a lot about the SRF' yourself.

Smacks of some kind of jealousy and negativity on the part of Widdecombe, IMO.

Here's another report in Town and Country:
https://www.townandcountrymag.com/so...glican-church/

"When asked whether Markle's first marriage to Trevor Engelson was an issue, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, who will officiate the vows at the upcoming royal wedding, replied, 'It's not a problem.' (Markle and Engelson divorced in 2013, citing "irreconcilable differences.")

'We went through that as anyone would who will officiate at a wedding where someone has been separated and a partner is still living,' Welby continued, per Sky News."

It is incredibly unlikely that Meghan is joining the Church of England because she has a newfound belief in its teachings that just happens to coincide with her relationship with Harry. It is a lot more likely that she recognizes the church as being important to Harry’s family, and realizes that there are a lot of activities that will involve the Church of England in her future and has come to a logical conclusion that joining the church will enable her to be more involved and/or more comfortable in these activities.

Many people convert to a religion because of their significant other. It’s probably less common now in a world where (in the West at least) religion plays a smaller role, but it still happens. Meghan is not unique in this.
I'm still not sure how or why you or anyone else can know for sure that the way you see it is actually the way it is. We do know that Meghan's father's faith growing up was Episcopalian. We don't know anything about his spiritual beliefs or about what he may or may not have shared with his daughter spiritually while helping to raise her. We do know that the Episcopal faith is the Americanized version of the Anglican faith.

How do you know when Meghan made the decision to be baptized and confirmed in the C of E? For all we know she may have been studying and receiving counsel from the Archbishop since early last year. Meghan and Harry may have known for some time that they were going to eventually marry, and that it was only a matter of time before they would get engaged. Meghan was visiting Harry quite often in London over the past year-and-a-half, which most likely included church attendance with Harry at the Chapel Royal, and being introduced to the Archbishop well before last November.

The Biblical warning is often taken out of context. Here's another explanation:

"Jesus commanded 'Do not judge by appearances, but judge with right judgment' (John 7:24, NRSV), and Paul's rhetorical question 'Is it not those who are inside [the church] that you are to judge?' (1 Cor. 5:12). Clearly not all judging is forbidden... Jesus meant only to condemn hypocritical judging."

All this reminds me of the episode where George converts to Albanian Orthodox to marry this woman he met. The Bishop asks him what about the faith attracts you and George replies the hats. He likes the pointy hats.

Imo and it’s only my opinion, Meghan would have converted to any religion if it meant becoming Princess Harry. Harry is her pointy hat.

Based on every interaction that I've publicly seen between Meghan and Harry, she's not just "this woman he met." It's fine to sit back and question what you apparently perceive as Meghan's 'pointy hat' motivations. I don't think either of them are perfect people, but I do think they are in love and there's something that seems fated in how they met at the right time in both their lives. The fact that they are related via ancient ancestors dating back to the court of Henry VIII is rather amazing, fateful, and a reminder that 'truth is often stranger than fiction.'

I don't see anything harshly critical about it.
It's pragmatic.
I don't think she cares much about any particular religion, so she'll gladly adopt the one her husband's family is associated with. (Just like Autumn did).
If you prefer to think she suddenly decided to embrace the COE due to a spiritual awakening, that is your opinion which is equally valid.

Sure, but the point is that you are making critical assumptions. I said that I don't know one way or the other, but there's no evidence it was simply a gesture of respect. And again, I do believe Meghan's reported bond with the Archbishop is genuine. As others have already stated, despite reports and speculation in the media and the assertions and assumptions being made here, we don't know exactly what's in Meghan's heart. It's a private spiritual matter. We are not privy to her deepest thoughts, much less to her private interactions with Harry, and with the Archbishop or anyone else near and dear to her.

On this matter, I don't presume to know Meghan's motivations. However, I do regard her decision in a positive way, especially based on the little I know that's been reported about her and what I've seen her say in interviews and write about in articles. And from all evidence, I doubt there was anything 'sudden' about the decision Meghan made.
