Podcast: Hayes Delivers ND Commencement Speech and More


On this week's Busted Halo Cast...

We answer a question about the Eucharist and Episcopalians.

And then I decided that if Mary Ann Glendon wasn't going to speak, perhaps I'd take a crack at it, going one step beyond Fr Jim Martin's article earlier this week.

"Grandeur" is not primarily what anglo-catholicism is about. Admittedly, there are more smells and bells than average, but the understanding is different from more protestant-leaning Anglicans. Since Anglicanism casts a wide net, there are folks that lean protestant and those who lean catholic in their theology, ecclesiology, etc. So you get labels like "low church," meaning more protestant, and "high church" or "anglo-catholic" for more catholic understandings. Anglo-catholicism developed in the Oxford Movement, a product of Tractarians such as John Keeble, Edward Pusey, and John Henry Newman (before he went to Rome), among others. Most of their writings are available at Project Canterbury.

When it comes ecumenical questions, I'm constantly amazed at how much we do not know about each other. Catholic schooled as I was and because of what I do for a living, I possibly have more understanding than some, but still. It's all fine and good for theologians to have the conversations that move us toward "one holy catholic church," but the lay people in the pews need to have more understanding than they do about the similarities and differences -- now.

Eah! No matter. Next time you're in Washington, give me a little bit more notice, and let's see if we can grab a drink (yes, I know you were just here!). Your work with young adults is intriguing, and I'm working out some of your theories in practice. Or basically, herding cats.
