The Bible And The Catholic Faith

The Bible And The Catholic Faith

Our faith is steadfast, unfeigned, and the only true one, having clear proof from these Scriptures (St. Irenaeus, Against Heresies, III.21.3) I was minding my own business sitting quietly in the Dallas/Ft. Worth airport catching up on emails. Then there was that sudden sense that someone was beside me, staring down. I looked up to find a nice, [...]

The Genie is Out of The Bottle

The Genie is Out of The Bottle

My first two parishes were in rural areas where fellow priests were twenty-five miles away. Things changed when I moved to my present parish. The mother parish had three priests on staff not including the mission priests. Even better they were all members of the apostolic clergy group. This was a group made up of Orthodox, Roman and Anglican [...]

Don We Now Our Lady’s Mantle

Don We Now Our Lady’s Mantle

Go ahead. You know you want to sing it. A title like this demands an obligatory “Fa la la—la la la—la-la-la.” Deep into a slightly longer Adventide than usual, and I’m already saying my mea culpas for tempting you with Christmastide before the Holy Family even leave for Bethlehem; before the Altar Guild and volunteers have had the chance [...]

A Christmas Homily

A Christmas Homily

“Let us go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has made known to us.” (St. Luke 2:15) It is Christmas, and once again and these words of the shepherds have become our own. We too journey with them to Bethlehem to celebrate the birth of Jesus once again. Bethlehem is a real place, not some imaginary village. [...]

Reverent Silence

Reverent Silence

“Today a great silence reigns on earth, a great silence and a great stillness. A great silence because the King is asleep.” So wrote an anonymous priest in the early centuries of the Church. “Today a great silence reigns on earth, a great silence and a great stillness. A great silence because the King is asleep.” He wrote this for a [...]

Revitalization of the Pusey Guild at Nashotah

Revitalization of the Pusey Guild at Nashotah

The Society of the Holy Cross has historically played an important role in the revival of catholic faith and practice among Anglicans. Its rule of life, ethos, and principles have shaped the lives and ministries of thousands of priests. Countless laypeople have benefited from its work. I myself have seen the fruit of the Society, as I was formed [...]

Toronto’s New Bishop

Toronto’s New Bishop

Not the Suffragan Bishop of Toronto The Diocese of Toronto, in the Anglican Church of Canada (ACoC), has a new Suffragan Bishop in the person of Kevin Robertson. Following his election in September, Robertson said this, from the chancel steps of St. Paul’s, Bloor Street: “I’m very overwhelmed, I didn’t really expect to be standing [...]

The Annual Assembly

The Annual Assembly

On the week of July 18th, our nation’s eyes were on the GOP Convention in Cleveland. Some 560 miles Southwest of Cleveland, a group of faithful Anglicans gathered at Our Lady of the Snows Shrine in Belleville, Illinois, for the Forward in Faith National Assembly. In Cleveland, the talks and meetings all focused on politics and elections, while [...]

The Lusty Month of May

The Lusty Month of May

Throughout the world, May is the month of Mary. And at least in this country, May is the month of Mothers. But it wasn’t always this way. Once upon a time, May was... well, one song from the Broadway musical Camelot offered a window into early medieval Europe and what May was like on the Christian frontier. Julie Andrews played Queen Guinevere. [...]

Not Their Kind of Homosexual

Not Their Kind of Homosexual

Recently a prelate asked me if I’d be willing to write something in article form.   He had seen the as-yet unedited and unpublished autobiographical/topical book I had already written contextualizing this subject (at the time of this writing, I am still in prayer and discernment for a publisher).  For five years that book project had gone [...]
