A Pastoral Letter from the Right REV. C. W. Sandford, D.D., Bishop of Gibraltar, to the Clergy of the Diocese (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from A Pastoral Letter From the Right Rev. C. W. Sandford, D.D., Bishop of Gibraltar, to the Clergy of the Diocese The Confirmation was wanted. For a like cause, Dr. Lay, Bishop of Easton in America, was good enough to hold a Confirmation for me in our church at Rome. In the different places which I visited I was glad to see proofs that the revival of Spiritual life, which our Church has exhibited at home during late years, has found its way to our congregations abroad. The Ser vices I found conducted with reverence and decorum, and in most places I was told that they were well at tended. It would, however, be an exaggeration for me to say that in no case were improvements needed. Here and there I believe that both pastor and people would allow that a little more life and fervour might be imparted to the Services, and that the music and other accessories of public worship had hardly reached that degree of excellence which is generally attained in England. But travellers, when they are tempted to find fault, should remember that the difficulties to be overcome in effecting improvements in our Public Services abroad are greater than they are at home, while the appliances, helps, and encouragements are generally far fewer.
