Many of our readers may recall that in the past three years the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham in the UK has organised nationwide spiritual projects under the titles “Called to be One” (2014), “Called to be Holy” (2015) and “Called to be Catholic” (2016). The next such project will be in 2018 under the title “Called to be Apostolic”.
It is less well-known that a special website exists which contains all the materials from these three projects as well as a continuing series of monthly meditations on English Spiritual Writers.
Among the materials you will find videos, two novenas and a children’s novena, spiritual readings for twenty-four hours with the Lord, all in all a collection of over forty (and counting) different texts from the English spiritual tradition.
The monthly meditations are to be found under the tab “English Spirituality” and you are warmly encouraged to go to the site and read the various texts, especially those which we did not repost on this website, which were
December 2016 – Advent: The Coming, R. S. Thomas
December 2016 – Christmas: The Second Shepherds’ Play (Wakefield Cycle)
January 2017 – Epiphany: Journey of the Magi, T. S. Eliot
February 2017 – St Brigid of Kildare (1 February): Walter de la Mare
The meditations are selected and compiled by Antonia Lynn, who happens to be a former member of the Board of Directors of the Anglicanorum Coetibus Society.
The English Spirituality is one more important element of the Anglican Patrimony, alongside the liturgy.
