The right kind of ecumenism, old-school: a little story
Catholicism, natural traditionalism that Arturo appreciates for example, is not the same as the common-knowledge caricature (Feeneyism) or obnoxious Orthodox online (I don’t mean all Orthodox) who rail against ecumenism
While attending Augustinian prep school, I billeted across the hall from the headmaster. It was always amusing to hear the voice of Billy Graham coming from the room of this very old-school Roman priest. I asked him one day if he thought that God worked through Billy Graham and his preaching. His answer surprised me. He said, “Undoubtedly He does... but no more so than through the rest of us. The difference is that Mr. Graham listens to Him.”
