Life of Raymond Raynes, The

‘Half Jesuit and half Salvation Army,’ someone said of Father Raynes. An Anglican monk, the late Superior of the Community of the Resurrection, Mirfield, England, Father Raynes combined personal holiness with a passionate care for people, and intellectual zeal with a life of intense activity. In Johannesburg, South Africa, he founded churches and schools, a work continued by Father Huddleston. In England he challenged the ‘establishment’ in the Church yet stood for tradition.

Nicolas Mosley, who was asked by the Community of the Resurrection, Mirfield, England to write this biography, was himself an agnostic when he first met Father Raynes. He writes, ‘Father Raynes was a person whom one either had to listen to or to deny; one could not ignore him.’
