This is about Richard Hooker, whose feast it is today.

The greatest Anglican theologian, whom I quote and paraphrase  
regularly--read about him at

and still more at


Then join me in the Collect for Richard Hooker, which seems extremely  
relevant to our own day:

O God of truth and peace, who raised up your servant Richard Hooker in  
a day of bitter controversy to defend with sound reasoning and great  
charity the catholic and reformed religion: Grant that we may maintain  
that middle way, not as a compromise for the sake of peace, but as a  
comprehension for the sake of truth; through Jesus Christ our Lord,  
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever  
and ever. Amen.
