Towards a New Day – part-memoir, part-journal – is the story of Ralph Martin, a Canadian priest who travelled to England as a young man to become a member of the Society of the Sacred Mission, an Anglican religious community. He has now been a member of SSM for close on sixty years. For nearly a decade, at a crucial time of change, he was Provincial of the English Province and set a course for the future. Subsequently he fulfilled a number of significant roles in different parts of the world. Yet this book is more than the story of one monk. Through Fr Ralph’s journey, his insight, wisdom and responses to the challenges facing the SSM as it sought to fulfil its monastic mission in a rapidly changing world, we discover the story of the reimagination and regeneration of one of Anglicanism’s most significant Orders. Towards a New Day has been introduced, edited and annotated by Canon Vincent Strudwick, an historical theologian, who was Sub-Warden of SSM’s College at Kelham before the crisis years, and has remained a friend and supporter of the Society and its members.
