Evangelicals and Catholics worldwide are shocked at the sudden death of a bishop in a breakaway Anglican church who had become a close personal friend of Pope Francis.
British-born Tony Palmer died in a hospital following hours of surgery after a motorcycle accident in the UK, on Sunday, July 20.
In January this year Pope Francis sent Bishop Palmer to a charismatic conference hosted by television evangelist Kenneth Copeland, where he unveiled a video message of unity and love that the Pope had suggested he do. In his address to the charismatic audience (and to the Christian world) Bishop Tony Palmer made this statement "Luther's protest is over. Is yours?"
Doug Batchelor produced a video response to the Pope's message that can be viewed (here).
