Nathan Söderblom of Uppsala

Almighty God, we bless your Name for the life and work of Nathan Söderblom, Archbishop of Uppsala, who helped to inspire the modern liturgical revival and worked tirelessly for cooperation among Christians. Inspire us by his example, that we may ever strive for the renewal of your Church in life and worship, for the glory of your Name; who with Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

What do you mean-"liturgical revival"? What did he make people do, exactly?

Tobias Stanislas Haller said...

The "liturgical revival" was a movement in many churches from the late ninteenth through the early twentieth century. He was an active participant in this. I don't think he "made people do" anything in particular, as that wasn't the point of the liturgical revival.

ps. Please use a name to identify yourself next time...

Tobias, this icon is a fine one. I dropped in all the way from London to say how much I like it.
