Anglican Tradition
For the last two weeks we have looked at the first two-thirds of our parish tagline: “Catholic Faith • Orthodox Worship • Anglican Tradition.” This week we’ll consider “Anglican Tradition.”
The word tradition simply means that we faithfully hand on what we have received (“For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received,” 1 Cor 15.3a), not making up whatever we like. The word Anglican simply means “English.” In other words, the traditions passed on from the time Christianity first came to the very edge of the Roman Empire, the British Isles, in the apostolic times.In more depth, the Anglican Tradition means that we are members of the Church instituted by Jesus Christ and founded on the Apostles two thousand years ago and their ancient faith in the creator of the world, the one God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; and in Jesus’ life, death, resurrection and ascension.

The Anglican Church is one of the three branches of Christianity:, which includes the Eastern Orthodox, the Roman Catholic, and the Anglican Catholic. The Anglican tradition is Reformed, Orthodox, and Catholic.

We witness to the authority of Holy Scripture, we affirm our Catholic heritage, remaining faithful to the whole Faith as revealed by Jesus Christ, without additions or subtractions, and like the Eastern Orthodox, we look to scripture, tradition, and reason, but continually defer to the faith and practice of the undivided Christian Church of the first thousand years.

When was the last time you invited someone to come with you to Mass?

Tip of the Biretta

Many thanks to the Snow family for all their work on the building and grounds, and to Ken Rice for repainting the doors a nice bright red to remind us that our entry to the church was purchased by the blood of the martyrs.
