April 9: Dietrich Bonhoeffer, pastor, scholar, community-builder, martyr

Shame on me. Were it not for Padre Mickey, I would have forgotten that it was the feast of one of my favorite theologians, Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

And although it is now the 10th in the evening, I am posting this with a date of April 9, because I did visit Padre Mickey's Dance Party on day of the feast.

So thanks to Mickey for this.

And here is a link to my Bonhoeffer post from last year. It's long, so maybe it's good for two feasts.

We give thanks, O giver of life,
for Dietrich our brother,
disciple of Jesus,
proclaimer and doer of the Word,
witness to Cross and Resurrection.
In Christ's name,
Amen.

Amen! An inspiration to us all and a true saint.

I am so far behind in blog reading... I read Padre's post and now I will check out yours from the past.

I do love Bonhoeffer.
