Patristic Roundup-May 25-31st, 2007

The Patristic Garden

Mike Aquilina on The Fathers of the Church blog features comments by R. R. Reno on the Fathers, calls St. Athanasius back to his office to deal with the canonization of Arius in an avowedly Arian church(well, you know, everything old is new again; if we can have a Gnostic Church, why not an Arian?) and gives us his patristic take on Memorial Day

Thanks, mark! Sorry I missed that, but the last month has been crazy so I'm missing things, I know. I'll add an update to this Roundup.

A general appeal to my readers, if you have written something, you can e-mail me (see link on page) before Thursday (when I usually get the Roundup done) or e-mail after the Roundup, if I've missed something. My methods aren't perfect, so things do go missing.
