It is not possible to engage in the direct apostolate without being a soul of prayer. We must be aware of oneness with Christ, as he was aware of oneness with his Father. Our activity is truly apostolic only insofar as we permit him to work in us and through us with his power, with his desire, with his love.

We profess to be strangers and pilgrims, seeking after a country of our own, yet we settle down in the most un-stranger-like fashion, exactly as if we were quite at home and meant to stay as long as we could. I don't wonder apostolic miracles have died. Apostolic living certainly has.

Whoever removes the Cross and its interpretation by the New Testament from the center, in order to replace it, for example, with the social commitment of Jesus to the oppressed as a new center, no longer stands in continuity with the apostolic faith.

A policy is a temporary creed liable to be changed, but while it holds good it has got to be pursued with apostolic zeal.

Feast of the Conversion of Paul


In his opinion the leaders of the Church had grown so used to the spectacle of the world neglecting the wisdom of Christ that they had ceased to be shocked by it and what was wanted was a renewal of the apostolic spirit among cardinals and archbishops and papal nuncios. It was no use preaching the gospel only to those who came to church to hear it. The gospel ought to be preached to those who didn't want to hear it as well: to industrialists in their offices, to clubmen in their windows, to workers in their yards and factories, to bibbers in their taverns, to harlots in their doorways, to all those should the sweet tidings of Christ be taught. It was a sorry matter for reflection that it was only heretics who dared to brave the sneers of the mob by crying aloud the Name of Jesus at street corners and in the market place.

Maundy Thursday



Commemoration of Frederick Denison Maurice,
Priest, teacher, 1872

In the whole range
of history there is no more striking contrast than that of the Apostolic
churches with the heathenism around them. They had shortcomings enough,
it is true, and divisions and scandals not a few, for even apostolic times
were no golden age of purity and primitive simplicity. Yet we can see that
their fullness of life, and hope, and promise for the future, were a new
sort of power in the world. Within their own limits they had solved almost
by the way the social problem which baffled Rome, and baffles Europe still.
They had lifted woman to her rightful place, restored the dignity of labour,
abolished beggary, and drawn the sting of slavery. The secret of the revolution
is that the selfishness of race and class were forgotten in the Supper
of the Lord, and a new basis for society found in love of the visible image
of God in men for whom Christ died.

Feast of Lancelot Andrewes, Bishop
of Winchester, Spiritual Writer, 1626
Commemoration of Sergius of Radonezh, Russian Monastic Reformer, Teacher,
1392

The characteristic
of our modern Christianity, which correlates it with all apostolic times,
is the substitution of loyalty to a person in place of belief in doctrines,
as the essence and test of Christian life. This is the simplicity and unity
by which the Gospel can become effective.

One attempt to reconcile the Gnostic doctrine [of the unreality of evilness] of matter with the apostolic teaching about Christ was the theory that the body which our Lord took at His coming into the world was not a real body but a phantom one. He only seemed to inhabit a material body, and from the Greek word dokein [to seem], people who held this theory were known as Docetists. But if Christ's incarnation was unreal, His death and resurrection were also unreal; and the whole gospel message was thus evacuated of its truth and power: one unhappy legacy of this short-lived phase of Christian heresy remains to bedevil Christian witness to Muslims up to the present day. For when the Koran says of Jesus that they did not kill Him, nor did they crucify Him, but they thought they did, we may infer that Muhammad was indebted for this idea to a Christian source tainted with Docetism.

Commemoration of Peter Chanel, Religious,
Missionary in the South Pacific, Martyr, 1841

The missionary
goes out to men of other faiths and of no faith, not to argue, not to make
comparisons, never to claim a superior knowledge or revelation, but to
tell of a glorious deed, of the New Creation that has occurred and of the
New Being that has appeared and into which men may enter. This is testimony,
the apostolic testimony, and this, with the energy of love, is the missionary
motive. The insistent task of missionary education and responsibility is
to engender this motive throughout the Church, a task that can only be
accomplished as men are confronted anew with the message of the Bible and
with its supreme and central story, the story of the cross.

Christ is the Master; the Scriptures are only the servant. The true way to test all the Books is to see whether they work the will of Christ or not. No Book which does not preach Christ can be apostolic, though Peter or Paul were its author. And no Book which does preach Christ can fail to be apostolic, although Judas, Ananias, Pilate, or Herod were its author.
