Who We Are

Vestiges of Christianity is a news blog maintained under the direction of Bishop Bryan D. Ouellette, Ph.D., SOSM. Our goal is to reconcile ancient Christian theology with contemporary orthodox Christian practices and understandings. Our praxis carries with it a strong eastern liturgical focus while maintaining a freedom of spirituality that is true to ancient Christian ideology. We welcome anyone who desires to discover gnosis through the expression of early Christianity. We use the word "gnosis" with the intention to reflect its original meaning of soteriological knowledge, mystical wisdom and spiritual realization. While we encourage a working philosophical comprehension of Classical Gnosticism from antiquity, we are not a Gnostic or reconstructionist church. Our theology is orthodox, our approach, furthermore, is mystically liberating.

A Very Busy Week

Greetings All!

My apologies for not contributing much activity to the blog this week. My ordination to priesthood and my formal elevation to abbot will take place on Lazarus Saturday (March 27, 2010), but we will be celebrating the vigil of Palm Sunday at the liturgy. Needless to say, the preparations for this event are huge and have been taking up all of my time. The complete event, however, will be filmed and posted to the blog probably sometime after Easter. Then things should start returning to normal.

Blessings to you all!
