A Few Statements on English Christianity’s Benedictine Influence

(Thanks to Father Matthew Cuthbert Dallman, Obl.S.B., for the following quotes.)

Time for a regular Public Service Announcement:

“Benedictine life and spirituality is central to the identity of English Christianity.”
The Most Rev. Steven J. Lopes, Letter to St Benet Biscop Chapter of Saint John’s Abbey, Sept. 2017

“The Anglican tradition is profoundly Benedictine.”
The Most Rev. Michael B. Curry, clergy study day in the Diocese of Atlanta, Oct. 2017

“So it is that the Benedictine Way really underlies the Book of Common Prayer, where the same trinity of liturgy, office and personal prayer is found for the joy of us all.”
The Most Rev. and Right Honourable Michael Ramsey, talk at Nashdom Abbey, July 1965.
