Of the Central figure in these volumes which Are concerned chiefly with even is that occurred from 18.16 to 1921, father Jeremiah o Flynn our historian has written something new and disturbing. The father o Flynn of p Pular Catholic belief he who is commonly held to have left behind the blessed sacrament in the House of a devout Layman in Sydney be cause of h s summary arrest and for Cible imprisonment before his deportation from the infant settlement at. Botany Bay that father o Flynn. Is almost a legendary figure although Only the Span of a Little More than a Century separates his Day from our own brawling one. There is an Aura of Romance about his head an air. Almost of splendor arid Triumph sur rounds him. But the s attractive character is taken from his height by. Father o Brien who in terms at once blatant and almost brutal declares in the preface to his Book that the traditional father. Jeremiah o Flynn was almost a mighty figure standing out time As an unrivalled missionary and a Martyr in All but death. But contemporary documents told another Story. Never was Hie As great As his few great deeds but occasionally he was greater than is Nany smaller we Are told further that the revelation which if to he made of the True father o Olynnis no. Mere.

A Century has Vyr be jigs personality not in the cob webs of of Livori but in the Gaudy raiment " which the real Man could never have i do not like father o Brien s trope. Father o Flynn was no Flimsy figure what Ever else he May have been and i am Philistine enough to relieve that stucco has its value and Utility in my belief. Father o Brien in his com Mendible desire to limn an indubitable portrait of father o Flynn has largely painted out his winning Fea Tures while emphasising in. Verbal graphics his unpleasant ones. In correcting what is undeniably a false notion concerning Pioneer missionary. Who is despite father o Brien s assertion to the contrary a personality of first rate historical importance he has removed not Only the Gilt but a Good Deal of the Ginger bread too. To jute Harbinger of the Dawn. Readers will note that i refer to this priest As o Flynn he is commonly spoken and written of As Flynn a but. Father o Brien establishes . Enough that his name lire be prefix o. The bearer of this name is shown in several phases of his life As being insubordinate rebel Lious and even schismatic and there can be Little question that his record was marred by deeds that Are wholly inexcusable.

Disprove his a Bholai by to the shepherdess Catholic flock in Sydney after Rome had appointed him prefect apostolic of new hol land the Man who defied the master Ful but sadly bigoted Lachlan Ynar e for Many months the priest who was always beloved of his people was no negligible figure. He had a High conceit of himself it is True but Many i eater Man than he have had no Small self appreciation. And it is to be believed without any darkening doubt that lie was an instrument whom god used to found the. Faith in this land in the marches of the Sun for he was in a very real sense the Harbinger of the. Dawn of catholicism m _ a gallery and a Vista. We meet in father o Brien s his tory with Many notable figures and glimpse revealing lights that make Plain much of the hidden things of the immediate pre emancipation Era. We see How Earnest Noble and saintly men were at Cross purposes in dark and trouble marked Days. We see How Rome itself was divided on the veto question and How in a Curi Ous fashion division on that very Issue worked to the end that father of Flynn should come to Australia. We meet the Strong prefect of propaganda Cardinal Litta. The representative in Rome of the Catholic association father Hayes the worthy franciscan As Cardinal Moran called him whose brother Michael Hayes pathetic letters of whom from Syd Nev dictated th4 sending of father o Flynn there. We meet that great priest father John England pastor of Bandon who was to become the first Bishop of Charleston in America and who was to. Champion father o Flynn sturdily Only later when that priest fell. In with schismatics to hold him up to excusable ridicule John England to whom perhaps More than to. Any other Australia owes most for the coming of approved and govern i in tally acknowledged chaplains. We make acquaintance with archbishop Troy of Dublin who did something to give pastors to. The priestess people of the Nursling settlement and we become intimate with the vicar apostolic of London Bishop Poynter who did nothing in that direction and to whose faults Foll is and weaknesses father o Brien is much More than a Little kind and who shows up so poorly in history against the massive character and spiritual stature of or. Milner whom we also meet whose ardor for emancipation together with that of the Irish Bishops was so inexplicable to the weakling vicar Apos Tolic of London on the " we come into Contact also with Macquarie who was responsible for the deportation of father o Flynn whose ministrations. He harassed and opposed at All times because of which hostility the priest was forced to write thus to father England i celebrated mass in a private room and never permitted above or ten persons to attend at one time until i would hear further from the governor that governor who speaking of the roman catholics in the Colony said we want to Snake them All protestants and who. When informed toy father o Flynn Chaphe hoped there would be one or two More clergymen coming out in a Short time said i will Send you and them poor gubernatorial Ca Nute who has Long to the Cloisters of the Clay taken eternal vow How the might not to be commanded tide of catholicism has confounded his re solve and that of Many like him leaving the blessed sacrament behind. The persistent belief that father o Flynn was prevented by his sudden seizure by the soldiery from return ing to the House of William Davis to consume the blessed sacrament there reserved for administer ing the holy Viat icum to the sick and to the dying is shown by father o Brien to be he claims that the deported missionary left it behind deliberately. In this he is supported by the Testi Mony of or. Polding As against that of or. Ullathorne. Father o Brien says it would be difficult in any circumstances to justify such a Delibe rate Bishop polding says father o Brien calmly enunciated what seems to us a startling reas on for the leaving of the sacred Host. In the Catholic almanac for 1854, there appears a Short Well written historical sketch of the australian Church. The author. Relying on Bishop polding s assertion writes the Archpriest having in vain sup placated the authorities to permit him to remain could Only As a last Consolation to the unhappy people from whom he was torn leave the blessed " eucharist in the House of a devout Catholic in order that the continual presence of the infinite might exer Cise a salutary influence upon the lives of the people " whatever the circumstances of the leaving behind of the sacred Host it is certain that influence was exercised. Cardinal Moran write for More than two years 111 after the arrival of fathers therry and Connolly the taper of the lamp was kept continually burning before it. A few catholics by turns came to offer the homage of their adoration and love and fervent were the prayers quickened by Faith offered at the Sanctuary of piety and poured Forth from sorrowing hearts that god would hasten the Day of mercy and not allow them to be for Ever shut out from the blessings o 1 h s holy but the blessed wafer had been consumed before fathers therry and Connolly arrived in Sydney. As father o Brien writes if any priest had come to Sydney subsequent to father o Flynn s de parture it would have been his duty. To remove the blessed sacrament. We know that a priest did come and that he in compliance with the Law of the Church As archbishop Carr wrote did consume the sacred that priest was the Chapla n on the French expeditionary ship l Uranie a contribution to Catholic history. Father o Brien s two volumes Are a distinct contribution to the limited Library of australian Catholic his tory. They Are Well documented acid written in admirable temper though some of the author s judgments need qualification and should be read with abatement. Some of the More purple passages might with advantage have been More quietly toned and one or two illustrative me abhors Are not Over felicitous. One or two passages of foreign quotation Are translated others Are not. This should Haye been remedied. The work is of importance and is the product of much labor re search and inquiry. It is finely conceived and built up nothing that is irrelevant or unnecessary is introduced. It is architecturally a whole and.
