Mighty God, we bless thy Name for the example of thy bishop Charles Todd Quintard, who persevered to reconcile the divisions among the people of his time: Grant, we pray, that thy Church may ever be one, that it may be a refuge for all, for the honor of thy Name; through Jesus Christ, who with thee and the Holy Spirit liveth and reigneth, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Today is the feast of Charles Todd Quintard, Bishop of Tennessee. He gave up his medical profession for the priesthood and was an adherent of the Oxford Movement. He was consecrated as the South’s first post-Civil War bishop, which was seen as a sign of healing within the church. pic.twitter.com/TWm2jQbi7F
