One of the exciting things about living in the times we do, is to see all the renewal that is surging through the Church. Sure a lot of people give in to the sensation that our culture and Church is going to 'hell in a handbasket', but if you have eyes to see, there are marvelous things happening all about us. One, I feel, is the emergent tribe, and all the excitement that comes with it. If you have the time, take a look at one article "De-Pimp and Re-Monk the Church" by Kyle Potter.
Of course, this isn't the first time something of this sort has happened, and today the Church remembers the early Abbots of Cluny, a Benedictine house in France. If you have time today, read this compilation of their work, especially, St. Odo, and how they brought revival to a Church sorely needing it.
O God, by Whose grace Your servants the Holy Abbots of Cluny, kindled with the flame of Your love, became burning and shining lights in Your Church: Grant that we also may be aflame with the spirit of love and discipline, and walk before You as children of light; through Jesus Christ our Lord, Who lives and reigns with You, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.
