The first principle of the Ordinariate is then about Christian unity. St. Basil the Great, the Church’s greatest ecumenist, literally expended his life on the work of building bridges between orthodox brethren who shared a common faith, but who had become separated from one another in a Church badly fragmented by heresy and controversy. He taught that the work of Christian unity requires deliberate and ceaseless effort...St. Basil often talked with yearning about the archaia agape, the ancient love of the apostolic community, so rarely seen in the Church of his day. This love, he taught, is a visible sign that the Holy Spirit is indeed present and active, and it is absolutely essential for the health of the Church.

“Groups of Anglicans” Forum Online

Christian Campbell announced the debut of a new site to help Catholic Anglicans come together for worship and study in their local areas: a great idea: using the web to let people get together in person!
Christian writes:
The “Groups of Anglicans” Discussion Forum is now online. I have added a new link entitled “Forum” to the main menu bar located in the header above.
As the site administrator, I am still learning the finer points of the forum software and, no doubt, the system will evolve based on user feedback and the changing needs of the community, but all of the basic functionality has been tested thoroughly. I would consider the system to be a public beta release.
Guest access is read-only. To reply to a post or create a new topic, you must login. There is a simple email verification system for user account creation...

Go to the Anglo-Catholic blog for the whole post and links.
