The New and Eternal Covenant by Dom Anscar Vonier

The New and Eternal Covenant by Dom Anscar Vonier

Dom Anscar Vonier, Abbot of Buckfast (1906-1938), was among England's greatest homilists and theologians of the early twentieth century.

In "The New and Eternal Covenant," he offers a sustained reflection on the eternal nature of the New Covenant as the "family heritage" of the Church of God and as the root of the sacramental life.

"The Covenant," Vonier writes, "is an alliance between God and man; it is a peace concluded between divine Justice and the sinner; it is a friendship between the Creator and His creature; and if man were not thus united with his Maker there would be no true Covenant. Between God and man there is a bond, and without that bond the Testament would not exist."
