"Who else would send you Hooker on a Wednesday morning"


A wonderful colleague of mine sent me an email with the title above and quoted the collect for the feast day of Richard Hooker ... probably a very helpful prayer to pray today. More on Hooker in a later post, he is wonderful (difficult to read, at times), but very wonderful!

The Collect for Richard Hooker's Day (Nov. 3):
O God of truth and peace, you 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.
