Pagina 103 - ... victory in the event. I saw that Reformation principles were powerless to rescue her. As to leaving her, the thought never crossed my imagination; still I ever kept before me that there was something greater than the Established Church, and that that was the Church Catholic and Apostolic, set up from the beginning, of which she was but the local presence and organ. She was nothing, unless she was this. She must be dealt with strongly, or she would be lost. There was need of a second Reformation.
Pagina 115 - RECEIVE the holy Ghost for the Office and Work of a Priest in the Church of God, now committed unto thee by the imposition of our hands. Whose sins thou dost forgive, they are forgiven; and whose sins thou dost retain, they are retained. And be thou a faithful Dispenser of the Word of God, and of his holy Sacraments; In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
Pagina 114 - ... and indolent, and to bribe the humbler classes by excitements and strong intoxicating doctrine? Surely it must not be so; - and the question recurs, on what are we to rest our authority when the State deserts us? Christ has not left His Church without claim of its own upon the attention of men.

There are some who rest their divine mission on their own unsupported assertion; others, who rest...
Pagina 191 - THOU to wax fierce In the cause of the Lord, To threat and to pierce With the heavenly sword! Anger and Zeal, And the Joy of the brave, Who bade thee to feel, Sin's slave. The Altar's pure flame Consumes as it soars: Faith meetly may blame, For it serves and adores. Thou warnest and smitest! Yet Christ must atone For a soul that thou slightest — Thine own.
Pagina 124 - Christ was intended to cope with human nature in all its forms, and surely the gifts vouchsafed it are adequate for that gracious purpose. There are zealous sons and servants of her English branch, who see with sorrow that she is defrauded of her full usefulness by particular theories and principles of the present age, which interfere with the execution of one portion of her commission; and while they consider that the revival of this portion of truth is especially adapted to break up existing parties...
Pagina 226 - He who has seen a ghost, cannot be as if he had never seen it. The heavens had opened and closed again. The thought for the moment had been, ' The Church of Rome will be found right after all;
Pagina 31 - Hurrell Froude was a pupil of Keble's, formed by him, and in turn reacting upon him. I knew him first in 1826, and was in the closest and most affectionate friendship with him from about 1829 till his death in 1836. He was a man of the highest gifts, — so truly many-sided, that it would be presumptuous in me to attempt to describe him, except under those aspects in which he came before me.
Pagina 134 - Pusey?" when I said that I did not see symptoms of his doing as I had done, I was sometimes thought uncharitable. If confidence in his position is, (as it is,) a first essential in the leader of a party, Dr. Pusey had it.
Pagina 143 - After hearing these sermons you might come away still not believing the tenets peculiar to the High Church system; but you would be harder than most men, if you did not feel more than ever ashamed of coarseness, selfishness, worldliness, if you did not feel the things of faith brought closer to the soul.
Pagina 372 - We find, oh most joyful, most wonderful, most unexpected sight! we find the whole cycle of Roman doctrine gradually possessing numbers of English Churchmen.
