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.

Quo Vadis? A new blog from Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson

Attentive readers will notice a new link in the list of Anglican Use/Ordinariate sites to the left of the screen: Quo Vadis, a blog by Msgr. Steenson, which was launched this month. Several notes have been posted by the Ordinary of the US Ordinariate, which will no doubt help slake the thirst for news of many interested Ordinariate-watchers who heretofore have had slim pickings, especially of anything that was remotely official.
