Collect


Collect for the Exaltation of the Cross

Almighty God, whose Son our Savior Jesus Christ was lifted high upon the Cross that he might draw the whole world unto himself: mercifully grant that we, who glory in the mystery of our redemption, may have grace to take up our cross and follow him; who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, ever one God, world without end. 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.
