Reflections on Apostolic Tradition
“You hold fast the traditions just as I handed down to you.” (1 Cor. 11:2)
As the Scripture hints above, I am Orthodox because it the only Church that still maintains the Apostolic Traditions in their fulness, at least in theory if not always in practice.
The views expressed in this blog are about a variety of topics but the main theme is in regard to the Traditions of the Church as they should be lived in practice. What these should be and why. Some ideas may seem outdated in the modern world but this does not mean they are irrelevant rather that the modern world has moved far from the way of Christ. Not all may agree with what is put here but it is done to engender thoughts about the Tradition and how it should be lived today. Contrary interpretations and views are welcome as some views are in more extreme forms to help provide a better gauge on where a balance should be.
In Christ, Priest-monk Patrick.
