Thanks. I truly enjoyed reading that.
Bravo Father, well said. As a retired priest of the Church (was in Dioc of Newark 8 years and now ret. in Indianapolis) I lament the dumb-ing down of the liturgy to its lowest common denominator. I am not a rigid traditionalist; I was just spoiled by being a member of seven famous Anglo catholic parishes which nurtured me starting almost 45 years ago. One of my fellow retirees made a very profound observation a few weeks ago: a few years older than I am (I am 68) said, “Sadly the Sanctuary has become the Fellowship Hall…” And that in itself is enough to reflect on. This was an excellent read with which to begin the New Year, on this day which is Twelfth Night.
Thank you for the item on Anglican tenets. As an Australian living in rural NSW, I find the commonality of the Anglican communion reassuring. Your observations on some of the practices you raise are also pertinent many kilometers away… Frances Tsoukalidis
