"The name of Charles Henry Brent flashes instantly upon our attention when we recall the great builders of the reign of God upon earth in modern times. All who new this rare spirit, refined in the furnace of God, recognized one who had offered up his life on the altar of the service of God in this world. " Courage, wisdom, goodness, and all inspired by grace, were his living sacrifice on the altar of his service of the Church, the one body of Jesus Christ," wrote Principal A. E. Garvie on Good Friday, 1929, upon hearing of his death...." - Bishop Brent - A Biographical Sketch from Things That Matter: The Best of the Writings of Bishop Brent
