Collect

Postcommunion for the Anniversary of the Dedication of a Church

O God, who of elect and living stones dost fashion for thy divine majesty an everlasting habitation: We beseech thee to assist the supplications of us thy people; that, like as thy Church increaseth in outward and visible habitations, so it may grow and prosper in all inward and spiritual advancement; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Reblog: Aaron Taylor

This is a more scholarly piece than I typically put here -- a real doozy. Aaron Taylor (who has been published in First Things as well as on Spiritual Friendship, not to mention Ethika Politika) has a mind like a steel trap, and is as conversant with queer theory as he is with Catholicism, making him in many ways an ideal commentator on the subject of being a gay Christian. This essay touches on one of my linguistic pet peeves, and does so with great erudition and insight.
