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

O Lord, keep us from vain strife or words; grant to us a constant profession of the truth. Preserve us in the faith, true faith and undefiled, that ever we may hold fast that which we professed when we were baptized unto, and in the name of, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit—that we may have thee for our Father, that in thy Son we may abide, and in the fellowship of the Holy Spirit: through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

                               - Hilary of Poitiers
