David over at wannabepriest has a very interesting post on the few things that he’d like to be taught at Ridley Vicar Factory apart from Doctrine. Ridley, for those who don’t know it, is in a little inconsequential town somewhere…
Aber mit der Heimat
geht man immer herum,
durch die Welt,
dort und dort
No one could describe
the Word of the Father;
but when He took flesh from you, O Theotokos,
He consented to be described, and restored the fallen image to its former beauty.
We confess and proclaim our salvation in word and image.
