He who places his hope on thee, O Virgin all-glorious, will prosper in all he does.

Catechisms and Anglicanisms

Fr. Stephen has expressed his intention of writing an Orthodox catechism. I commented in forthright fashion.

Well...at least he'll be able to testify at Judgment that I once gave him a cup of cold water.

While I'm on the subject of Fr. Stephen, let me sing his praises for a moment. He's a good example of what I love about Anglican-tradition believers and, especially, Anglican-tradition converts to Orthodoxy. He and I agree on little other than Orthodoxy, but he brings to the table articulate erudition, good humor, and collegiality. He's a real pastor, and, as a bonus, his parish's nave is pewless.
