Conference “Tradition” V: lex orandi, lex credendi, lex vivendi!

The fifth in this series of Conferences about “Tradition”. In this episode, Metropolitan Jerome reiterates that Old Roman Catholicism i.e. Western Orthodoxy is a part of the living Tradition of the Church. His Grace emphasises again that Old Roman Catholicism is the continuation of the ancient orthodox tradition of the Catholic and Apostolic faith developed in the Latin i.e. Western rite without the 19C introduced dogmas of the Immaculate Conception and Papal Infallibility. His Grace then explains the way in which Sacred Tradition is lived in the orthodox Catholic Church.
Addressing the centrality of worship in the life, identity and mission of the Church, i.e. living Tradition, Metropolitan Jerome introduces the maxim “lex orandi, lex credendi, lex vivendi”. His Grace interprets the phrase to explain “how we worship reflects what we believe and determines how we will live”. Explaining the Sacraments in turn, His Grace demonstrates how they enable the Christian to manifest “knowing, loving, serving and being happy” with God, achieving true fulfillment through fulfilling God’s will.
