The Dove

David Russell Mosley reblogged this on Letters from the Edge of Elfland and commented:

Stratford Caldecott, a man I never had the pleasure of meeting in this life, has had a profound effect on my life, devotion, theology, understanding of education, and more.

I can only join the ranks of those who mourn, as Stratford himself understood them, Blessed are they that mourn: "that is, those who remember the dead, and who remain faithful to tradition" (Not as the World Gives, 13). Read this, and be moved, read more Stratford Caldecott, and let him move you to greater devotion for our Holy Lord.
