1 and 1 and 1 are One – A Mediation on the Feast of the Holy Trinity
Last edited 27th May 2013

On the Feast of the Most Holy Trinity (Sunday 26 May 2013), we do well to remember that we are pondering a mystery that cannot fit in our minds. A mystery though, is not something wholly unknown. In the Christian tradition the word “mystery,” among other things, refers to something partially revealed, much more of which lies hid.

The first denomination to depart from this received teaching was the Anglicans, who at the 1930 Lambeth conference set aside more than 5000 years of Jewish and Christian wisdom and embraced the modern contraceptive notion that there is no necessary connection between procreation and sex. One by one the other Protestant denominations fell, such that today, only Catholic and Orthodox Christians, as well as some Orthodox Jews, are left holding the light of ancient antiquity.


Is it "Illogical" to Believe in the Resurrection?
Last edited 4th April 2013

Many people will tell you that “based on human logic” the Resurrection makes no sense. The first thing we need to remember is that “human logic” is not omnipotence. God makes it very clear that “(His) ways are not our ways, nor are His thoughts our thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:8-9)

Last edited 27th February 2013

Others may recognize his special authority, but deny Apostolic Succession, the passing on of this office by the Church.
