Fr Michael Butler 3Here I begin to build my platform. This site is not yet live, and still very much under construction. If you happen by, I’d appreciate your comments. Thanks in advance.

I plan to use this site as a place to gather thoughts and discuss subjects that interest me, among which will be

  • living the Orthodox Faith;
  • environmentalism;
  • natural law in the early Church;
  • the works of St Maximus the Confessor and other Patristic authors;
  • clergy self-care; and
  • anything else that strikes my fancy.

The title of the blog, Ambiguorum Blogis, is Latin for “Blog of ambiguities,” and is a little word-play on one of the writings of St Maximus the Confessor, his Ambiguorum Liber, a speculative work in which he resolves ambiguous passages from earlier Fathers. Whether or not I resolve anything here remains to be seen.

You are welcome to participate in the discussions if they interest you. Usual rules of civility apply.

Since building a platform is going to take a major restructuring of my work habits, it’s going to take me a while to get up to speed with the technical side of things. Still, I look forward to posting regularly.

May Paradise consume us.



  1. Howdy Mike, you’re off to a good start here, can’t wait to see more!

    • Tanx much. I appreciate your encouragement.
