Ladies and Gentlemen: Saint Clement has Left the Building

Catafalque

Saint Clement’s Church Philadelphia, a great hallmark of Anglo-Catholicism and a standard in the fight for continuing traditional worship and ministry to the poor and needy, died last Sunday at the age of 153.

Saint Clement’s died at her center city home in Philadelphia of complications from a disease contracted from a foreign body. She fought this disease for over a year, said a son who was with her during her demise. Many of her children had left during her illness and she had been sick for “quite a while,” he said. “I just couldn’t continue watching her die like that,” said a daughter distraught over having to leave her behind.

(Personally, I don’t like the term “gay marriage” – it’s just marriage; we don’t call it “straight marriage” or “bisexual marriage” for those who can marry today. Why do we need to call it “gay marriage” for the rest of us? But I digress.)

It’s Memorial Day. A day of remembering. According to History.com: More
