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 our Anglican branch of that tribe at Anglimergent.
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.
