  1. "Reportedly" makes this sound like second-hand news. It's an announcement by the EP itself, isn't it?

  2. Kyrie eleison. A tremendous schism looms.

  3. Christ is the head of His Church, not men. Pray for inner peace above all. If there is what appears to be aa

    split looming let it be temporary and between the family of brothers and sisters and not Cain against Abel .
