CHAPTER 7 THE SOUL’S EYE The Book of Common Prayer “Only when the human spirit does not cut itself off from the divine spirit, only then has man’s word enough power to keep hold of things.” —Max Picard, The Flight from God, p. 121. Give me, O Lord, the assistance of Thy Spirit and comfort of Thy grace, truly to know Thee, entirely to love Thee, and assuredly to trust in Thee. And that as I do acknowledge to have received the government of this Church and kingdom of Thy hand, and to hold the same of Thee, so grant me grace, O Lord, that in the end… Read MoreContinue Reading

Which Way the Church?
Which Way the Church? The May-June issue of The Traditional Anglican carried an interesting article by Bert Dantu about Deacons, tracing their origins to Acts 6:2, where Stephen and Philip appear as among the first appointed. However, although this account is usually cited as the source of this church office, the noun, diakonis, never appears; only the phrase diakonein trapezais (=serve at tables).
