I’m a day late, but grateful to Deb for the reminder that yesterday was the anniversary of the repose of Fr Alexander Schmemann. As I’m sure is true for many, Fr. Alexander was my first exposure to Orthodoxy. His elucidation of the sacramental life changed my whole view of everything. I hardly live out my changed view, but then I hardly lived out my previous views, or anything else I should. At least I know the things I should be doing that I’m not.
May Fr Alexander’s memory be eternal!
