They have been given from on high precisely to help the spiritual progress of those who study them in a spirit of piety. For, as the Vatican Council teaches, 'reason illumined by faith, if it seeks earnestly, piously and wisely, does attain, under God, to a certain and most helpful knowledge of mysteries...'"...." - Foreword from Liturgical Piety

In 1940, William Temple, Archbishop of York and afterward Archbishop of Canterbury, published his Readings in St. John's Gospel. In the first paragraph of that work he wrote: This book is not a systematic commentary or exposition; nor is it intended for scholars or theologians-though whatever value it has for souls on pilgrimage may be as real for them as for others. Again, it is not a series of devotional meditations, though it contains some of these. It has no distinctive and consistent character. But it is an attempt to share with any who read it what I find to be my own thoughts as I read the profoundest of all writings...." - Introduction from The Compassionate Christ: Reflections from the Gospel of Luke

It is that, but it is much more than that. The word religious is said to mean "under bond" or "under rule." Religious are men and women who have bound themselves by a vow to God to live their lives in a community under a rule according to three Evangelical Counsels. How can such a life be justly considered strange or eccentric or selfish? It is no more than an attempt to live the Christian life in its fullness and perfection." - Chapter 1.

The previous owners name is written on the inside of the front cover board and his seal is affixed to the front cover page. The pages are yellowed and tanned but clear of any markings. "This volume does not form part of the series entitled 'The form of the Servant', although I hope that it may be regarded as further illustrating the principles of biblical interpretation there adopted. In the course of the past century there has been amongst Anglicans a periodic discussion of matters connected with baptism and confirmation. During the second half of this period, however, a number of new factors have been contributing to the development of a fresh situation. Amongst these are the growing recognition that both Jewish and more ancient backgrounds are all-important and secondly the recovery of early liturgical texts amongst which The Apostolic Tradition of Hippolytus stands out. My own interest was first aroused by F. Gavin's small, but learned, book on The Jewish antecedents of The Christian Sacraments (1928), which showed a close continuity between Jewish and Christian forms of initiation and which, in that respect, is still highly relevant. For example, it makes clear the strongly Jewish background of the Hippolytan rites, and even a substantial identity of rubrics....." - Foreword from Confirmation: It's Place In The Baptismal Mystery

In 1607, a certain Madame de Charmoisy, whose husband was an ambassador of the Duke of Savoy and a relative of St. Francis, visited Annecy to attend a lawsuit, and while there placed herself under his spiritual direction. When she returned to court he gave her a series of written spiritual instructions, which he had begun to compile as early as 1602, for the guidance of persons seeking to live a devout life in the world. These instructions were shown to Pere Jean Fourier of the Society of Jesus, who considered them 'a treasure of devotion', and so valuable that he strongly urged St. Francis to have them printed, with the result that the first edition, edited by St. Francis, was issued in 1609 under the title Introduction a la Vie Devote...."

The Hymnal, 1982, the culmination of more than a decade of work by the Standing Commission on Church Music, incorporates many of the riches of this contemporary renaissance. This hymnal is a response to the challenge of the Church's mission to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ to a changed and changing world...." - Preface from Hymnbook 1982

""When answering my letters, requesting information about their communities, several Superiors have asked why, as a Roman Catholic, I should be sufficiently interested in Anglican religious orders to think it worth while to write a book about them! Very much the same surprise has been expressed by some of my co-religionists when I mentioned the work on which I was engaged. So I explained that the subject is one which has attracted me for nearly half a century, ever since I was a youth of fifteen and chanced to pick up a copy of The Life of Father Ignatius, O.S.B., The Monk of Llanthony by the Baroness de Bertouch (London, 1940) - a strange introduction to the monastic life! Since then this interest has grown, rather than decreased. It was revived definitely about fifteen years ago when I added a long introductory chapter, dealing with religious communities in the Church of England, to The Benedictines of Caldey (London, 1940). Then one day it struck me that it was high time that somebody wrote an up-to-date history of Anglican religious communities...." - Foreword from The Call of the Cloister: Religious Communities And Kindred Bodies In The Anglican Communion

The pages are crisp, white and clear of any markings. "For nearly two millenia, the Bible has been the cardinal text for Judaism and Christianity. Its stories and characters are part of both the repertoire of Western literature and the vocabulary of educated women and men. It is, however, more than a collection of ancient tales. Even before a canonical list of books considered sacred scripture or holy writ was established, the writings we now call the Bible were considered normative: they laid down the essential principles of how human beings should deal with God and with each other. Te practice of quoting from, an alluding to, earlier texts as authoritative is found within the Bible itself and has continued unabated in subsequent Jewish and Christian writings. At the same time, the Bible has also been formative; subsequent generations of believers have seen themselves as descended from, and in continuity with, those to whom God had spoken and for whom he had acted definitively in the past, and the recital of those words and events has been instrumental in shaping the religious communities of succeeding generations. The Bible has thus had an immeasurable influence on Judaism and Christianity, on the cultures of which they have formed a part, and on all those traditions in some ways derived from them, such as Islam...." - Introduction from The Oxford Companion to the Bible

"In their fifteen-hundred-year history, Benedictines have passed on to parishes all over the globe their tradition of praising God in song. In 1959 the Liturgical Press published a prime example of that with the first edition of Our Parish Prays and Sings.Through several editions, including the Book of Sacred Song, the American parish has come to know the best of classical Christian hymnody, in both the vernacular and the Latin chant. Much of the tradition of thirty years in promoting congregational song has been included in The Collegeville Hymnal, with emphasis as well on music and texts of notable merit gleaned from the work of contemporary composers and writers. Indeed, particular attention has been paid to texts from which archaic or non-inclusive language has been eliminated, except where poetic importance precludes change...." - Introduction from The Collegeville Hymnal

An archbishop of Canterbury is better placed than most to appreciate the degree to which this issue is confronting us today. It lies at the heart of so many discussions between churches, as well as of some of the most controversial and sensitive matters which face us all. The nature and exercise odf authority will be a vital issue at the 1988 Lambeth Conference...." - Foreword from Authority in the Anglican Communion: Essays Presented to Bishop John Howe
