A Word from the Vicar...

To the brothers and sisters of Mary and Martha…

My heart is full tonight.  For several years it seemed like the ministry and mission of Saints Mary and Martha Church was simply stagnating.  It often felt as though we were searching for the will of the Lord, but not finding it.  In the fullness of time, though, as we returned to our core mission of prayer (contemplative and intercessory), the Lord began something new in our midst.

Today, as I offered my sermon, I was struck by the fact that the "new people" equaled the number of "usual people" - even though several of our "new people" couldn't be with us today!  Then, after Mass, I was struck by the way in which the new and the usual folks are blending into a growing family.

Both before Mass (as I was highlighting the upcoming feast of Saint Athanasius and the profound significance of his Christian witness) and during "Anglican 101" (as I shared about the difference between rationalism and mysticism, how our western minds have been trained to remove sacred mystery from our faith), I was struck by the joy of standing within the tradition of the one holy catholic and apostolic Church.

What's happening at Saints Mary and Martha is not insignificant.  What's more, it's no accident that Saints Mary and Martha is growing - both spiritually and numerically.  We are disciples who are being formed in the ancient and holy faith of the Church.  Being planted in that incomparably rich soil is going to naturally lead to growth in Christ.  It is the seedbed of truth and holiness.

Laudetur Jesus Christus, in saecula saeculorum!  Amen.  (Praised be Jesus Christ, now and for ever!  Amen.)
