Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.
Interesting man, Bowden; one of the early founding fathers of the London Oratory, a companion of Fr Faber.
Thanks for the info Father I'm downloading them now.
Today’s entry is a rather damning of the current trend of ecumenical prayer meetings with anyone and everyone.AVOIDANCE OF SCANDALArchbishop HEATH OF YORK, 1579HE took the oath of supremacy under Henry VIII, and accepted from him in succession the Sees of Rochester and Worcester. Repenting of his cowardice, he opposed the innovations of Edward VI, and was imprisoned in 1551. Under Mary he was set free, absolved from his schism, and made Archbishop of York. On his refusal to crown Elizabeth or to take the oath of supremacy he was deposed, and freedom of residence was offered him if he would assist at the Protestant services ; but he declined the offer, and "why I decline," he said, "theCouncil have often heard me say to Parliament, all of which may be summed up thus : What ever is contrary to the Catholic faith is heresy ; whatever is contrary to unity is schism." And when the visitors said that he would not be required to receive communion, he answered "that it is the same thing in reason to act a part of schism as the whole, nor would I that even my back should be seen where scandal might be given, since the heart cannot be read." He died in the Tower twenty years after his deposition, April 1579. The other Bishops regarded him, it was said, as monks do theirabbot."Whoever shall scandalise one of these little ones that believe in Me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged round his neck and he were cast into the sea." MARK ix. 41.
