BRICK OF THE DAY

... today is the Orthodox priest in a recent post by Daniel Greeson on his blog PAIDEIA.

Here is a man who knew exactly what Jesus would have done and he did it damning the consequences. You know, I doubt if a single member of that congregation even thought about complaining to the bishop. Unlike the so-called "orthodox" of Anglicanism, who would have been straight on the phone to their local right reverendness venting their pharisaical disgust.

A big thank you to Daniel for bringing this story to us and for doing it in such eloquent prose.

And a thank you to TheraP for forwarding the link to MadTowers.

  1. From the Paideia posting: “I have no idea how many church canons or liturgical rubrics were violated today. But I can tell you that there was not a dry eye in the church.”

    There was not a dry eye in heaven, either.

  2. How fabulous. That little boy now has an indelibly wonderful memory of what churches are all about. So does everyone else who was there.

  3. “Suffer the little children to come unto me and forbid them not…” It was the absolutely right thing to do, wasn’t it? What a brick he is!

  4. My thoughts also BooCat.

    Obviously a much more important rubric has been observed.

    “Suffered the little children, and forbid them not to come unto me, for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven”
    Matt 19:14

    This congregation has experienced a little bit more heaven than usual in this liturgy!

  5. Lovely story, and all, but I’m too deeply cynical about the “goodness” of Orthodoxy overall.

    Still, well-done Easty-priesty.
