    The Historic Case for Paedocommunion (Child Communion)

    The Historic Case for Paedocommunion (Child Communion)

    “Those who say that infancy has nothing in it for Jesus to save, are denying that Christ is Jesus for all believing infants. Those, I repeat, who say that infancy has nothing in it for Jesus to save, are saying nothing else than that for believing infants, infants that is who have been baptized in Christ, Christ the Lord is not Jesus. After all, what is Jesus? Jesus means Savior. Jesus is the Savior. Those whom he doesn’t save, having...

    How is God called Father?

    Our most basic statement of faith, the Apostles’ Creed sets forth the essential truths about how we are to understand the Christian God.

    Prayer of Humble Access

    The historic prayer book of the Anglican Communion, “The Book of Common Prayer,” includes some controversial prayers.

Its emphases on saints and sacraments can seem wetted from the pen tip of Thomas Aquinas rather than Thomas Cranmer.
