Note to My Readers: from mid-June to mid-August (6/18 - 8/20), I will be taking a summer break from posting new articles for my Thursday and Friday slots. This will only affect my Thursday series on the global growth of Christianity, and my Friday series, the "Theological Bestiary" of birds, both of which will resume in late August. During the summer, I'll be dusting off some of my best essays from the first few years of this blog (a decade ago), as well as my verse play "Thus Ends the World," and re-posting them in the Thursday and Friday slots. All other weekdays will continue to feature new material throughout the summer.

Saturday Synaxis



Thou hast given unto us, O Lord, sanctification in the communion of the all-holy body and precious blood of thy only-begotten Son, our Lord Jesus Christ; give unto us also the grace of thy good Spirit, and keep us blameless in the faith; lead us unto perfect adoption and redemption, and to the coming joys of eternity; for thou art our sanctification and light, O God, and thy only-begotten Son, and thy all-holy Spirit, now and ever, and to all eternity. Amen. 
                         
- Sacristy prayer from the Liturgy of St. James
