A Letter to the Parishioners of St. Saviour's, Leeds (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from A Letter to the Parishioners of St. Saviour's, Leeds Nor can I refrain from lamenting the failure that has thus far attended an undertaking which, when it was first proposed to me, I could not help regard ing as an unlooked-for opportunity of providing for the spiritual instruction of the inhabitants of one of the most destitute parts of the town of Leeds; and I was then willing to hope that it would promote the great objects which I had in view, when I laid the foundation of your school, four years previous. Happy, indeed, would it have been for the Church, and for yourselves, had you con tinued under the teaching of that diligent and affec tionate pastor, who in those early days, instructed you in the pure verities of the Catholic faith, without tempting you into the perilous paths which lead to Rome, or encumbering the Ritual of our Reformed Church with pompous ceremonies, at first, perhaps, intended to illustrate, yet never failing, ultimately, to obscure the truths which they would symbolize.
