The Sarabite: Towards an Aesthetic Christianity

There is a continuous attraction, beginning with God, going to the world, and ending at last with God, an attraction which returns to the same place where it began as though in a kind of circle. -Marsilio Ficino

He's Singing My Song


Very often I hear Christians speak of things in their belief system which are ”so clear” to them. Many believers (of all varieties) parade their opinions in such an ostentatious manner as though there is no chance that their mind could ever be changed. I was once one of these people, that is until most of what I held to be “clear” was not so clear anymore and 75% of my beliefs had been drastically altered.

--Jonathan Bonomo

Amen, brother, amen!

I hope that no matter how cocky I might seem sometimes, we will alll keep this in mind when we discuss things on this blog. My opinions are a work in progress, just like Cranmer's Eucharistic opinions, which is the subject of the meditation found above.

I think one great Anglican Divine (whose name I can't recall at the moment) said words to the effect that he might err, but he would never be a heretic as he aspired to the apostolic faith of the Fathers and would always submit to the judgment of the Church Catholic if so requested.

This frame of mind and orthodox-catholic spirit, I think, is all that any of us can hope to obtain.
