Dwight Longenecker a graduate of Bob Jones University and a former Anglican priest is going to be ordained as part of the Pastoral Provision. He spent much of his life in England, but is back in South Carolina now. I reviewed his book Adventures in Orthodoxy before and so has Julie at Happy Catholic. I also recently read his St. Benedict and St. Therese: The Little Rule & the Little Way. He has a great Chestertonian way of looking at things and writing in such as way to make you look more closely to.
On another note of former Anglican’s now a priest. Fr. George Rutler celebrated his 25th anniversary as a priest yesterday. I loved his book The Cure D’Ars Today which not only was a great biography of St. John Vianney, but included many great turns of phrases. On a side note whenever I hear Fr. Rutler’s name I am reminded of The Rutles, a parody band from some members of Monty Python. Strange association, but they both have the ability to make me laugh.
