Excerpt from A Memorial of Louis Sandford Schuyler, Priest
Suffer himself to be desired, And not blush so to be admired.
Therefore the serious design of this history is not to celebrate a man, but the power of Divine Grace in him - to show how entirely feasible (though assuredly not easy) it is for one in our day, and in our Church, to live a life very like to that of jesus christ. And if it seem rather a startling thing, and hardly reverent, to say of any man that he was much like Him, we must consider what a strange, pathetic sign of our essential irreverence - and of the need of more such lives - Mat is, after Nineteen Centuries of Christianity!
