holy mysteries

By Diogenes ( articles ) | Nov 12, 2005

The Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams describes the spiritual transformation he underwent at age 14 after having attended a Russian Orthodox Mass:

Dr Williams said: "When I came away, I felt I had seen glory and praise for the first time. I felt I had seen and heard people who were behaving as if God were real."

"I came away with the sense of absolute objectivity and majesty and beauty of God which I have never forgotten. If people worshipped like this, I felt God must be a great deal more real (than) even I have learnt him so far."

"Even I," sayest thou?

Modulo the obligatory head-pat, your Grace, that is a beautiful testimony to the power of God-centered liturgy. You're in a better position than any man in the Anglican communion to make your liturgical aspirations a reality.

So ... why?
