Acts and Sacraments

The Church renews us with temporal sacraments and sketches of heavenly things.

The hope of glory

In Romans 8, St. Paul develops the contrast between present sufferings and future glory.

Climbing the ladder of God’s delight

My first encounter with natural delight changed my life. I ended up leaving my parish ministry in North Carolina to move to the United Kingdom. Since then, I’ve gone out into wildernesses and the countryside with increasing regularity, spending as much time as I responsibly can soaking in the natural world and learning how to delight.

God despises bores. Easter reminds us of this. Put the redemption of the world into our hands, and we’d come up with something unimaginative, uninspiring, and probably much too believable.

Glorious apparel

Mightier than the sound of many waters, mightier than the breakers of the sea, mightier is the LORD who dwells on high.
