13 September 2007

For the next few days, I will be on retreat at St. Gregory’s Abbey in Three Rivers, Michigan.

Please pray for my safe travels and a fruitful time away from home.

    Amazing! If things go as planned, I’ll be there NEXT weekend. Sorry to have missed you.


  3. Just an observation: hard to believe based on what I know of the abbey now, but when St Gregory’s began it wasn’t just Anglo-Catholic; it was Anglo-Papalist, a type almost entirely English (it was a daughter house of now-gone Nashdom Abbey in England) and one of the only places in the Episcopal Church that, until 1967, did not use the Book of Common Prayer in any form but instead exclusively used the Roman Mass… the Tridentine Mass in Latin. (The Monastic Breviary in Latin too.) In short it was just like a Roman abbey of the period.

    A friend in England was at Nashdom for a year. The Anglican Benedictines there are now at Elmore Abbey, which I hear is on life support.
