“What earlier generations held as sacred, remains sacred for us too, and it cannot be all of a sudden forbidden or even considered harmful.” – Pope Benedict XVI, Summorum Pontificum

In Protestantism, we are inclined to leave the past in the past and to create all things new. New theologies. New symbols. New hermeneutics. New architecture. Let us cease, though, in just creating new. Let’s also marvel in the sacred of old. The beautiful sacred of those closer in time to Christ. Let us not forget our forefathers. Whether we like it or not, we stand on their shoulders.
