Some of the greatest progressive, social and justice-minded people in the Anglican Church throughout history were Anglo-Catholics.
It was the Anglo-Catholics who labored in the slums of East London in the nineteenth century.
Throughout history famous Anglo-Catholics have also included none other than people like poets Christina Rossetti and T.S. Eliot, one of the greatest Archbishops of Canterbury (in my humble opinion anyway), Michael Ramsey and Frances Perkins, who was Secretary of Labor under President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the first woman to hold a cabinet position in the U.S., just to name a very few.
And modern Anglo-Catholics encompass such people as South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
Well, when we meet Mary, she is a simple Jewish girl.
