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.

Anglican Embers published and on way to subscribers

Anglican Embers is the quarterly journal of the Anglican Use Society, published (roughly) at the four embertides of the year. The latest issue just got mailed (a few weeks late). This issue is the final issue of the third volume (each volume has 12 issues), which means that Embers has now been published for 9 full years!

This issue's table of contents includes:

The Anglican Use & Ordinariates Online, page 523
The Anglican Patrimony and the New Evangelization,
Rev. John Jay Hughes, page 527
Compel People to Come In: Growth in Holiness,
Rev. Andrew Bartus, page 539
Practical Considerations and Future Directions in the Pastoral Provision and Ordinariate,
Dr. Marlon De La Torre, page 546
MUSIC: Minor Propers for the Feast of The Chair of St. Peter, Feburary 22
C. David Burt, editor, page 550

David Burt began the journal and served as the editor into the early issues of Volume II, after which he asked me to take over the journal. In that time we have published talks given at the annual Anglican Use Conferences, three graduate dissertations (serially) on topics of interest to the Anglican Use, several new settings of Mass propers for major feasts (Our Lady of the Atonement, Sacred Heart, Conversion of St. Paul), an account of the Society's pilgrimage to Rome and many other articles. Several articles are available for download from the Anglican Embers page on the AUS web site.
