Ecclesiastical bibs and bobs
  • Advent I: Excita, quæsumus, Dómine, poténtiam tuam, et veni: ut ab imminéntibus peccatórum nostrórum perículis, te mereámur protegénte éripi, te liberánte salvári: Qui vívis et régnas cum Pátre in unitáte Spíritus Sáncti, Déus, per ómnia sæcula sæculórum. Amen.
  • I don’t agree with Cranmer’s theology but he had a way with collects: Almighty God, give us grace that we may cast away the works of darkness, and put upon us the armour of light, now in the time of this mortal life in which thy Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility; that in the last day, when he shall come again in his glorious majesty to judge both the quick and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal; through him who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
  • Churchmanship: coat or skin? From Fr Edward Tomlinson.
  • From Arturo: The American way of conversion.
