Spent the morning watching EWTN with housemates. Fulton Sheen was saying something learned and engaging and flamboyant. Fr. Corapi was giving a lecture on holy water as a weapon against the devil. (Flipping back and forth between all of this and Fishing with Roland Martin.) I asked my housemate, David, "why there isn't an Anglican channel like this," to which he responded "Because there aren't Anglicans like this." These men engage with their audiences. They give practical, informed spiritual teaching and advice. They are apparently men of prayer. They aren't spoilt by the enlightenment. There aren't any Anglicans like this. They are, at best, an endangered species. Sad.
