ἀναστόμωσις

Another sympathetic blog is linking to mine – ἀναστόμωσις.This is a Greek word from the verb ἀναστομόω (1st person singular), meaning to furnish with a mouth or outlet. In medicine it means a connection between two blood vessels (other channels in the body too) or a surgical procedure intended to create one. The author of this blog is obviously meaning an analogy of this notion applied to two channels of grace, the western Catholic and Anglican traditions. In his words:

Anglican liturgical patrimony is that which has nourished the Catholic Faith, within the Anglican tradition during the time of ecclesiastical separation, and has given rise to this new desire for full communion.

This blog appears to be new, but has got off to a good start with some thoughtful articles.
