Defined by love

What I mean to say is this: that tradition is the way to love (the Who) and purity or integrity is the how (the degree: absolute). The concept of purity and tradition cannot be divorced from love, because they are types of love: and if we begin to speak of them without being completely conscious that they are simply ways to "love the Lord your God with all your heart" and "love your neighbor as yourself," then we are no longer really speaking of tradition or purity at all.

Drew at the Shrine hits the nail on the head. The point he makes about the Roman communion needs to be heard by us Anglicans as well. Read the whole post here.
