proceeded to the delivery of his we regret that we cannot this week find space for the entire document but in the meantime we give a careful abridgement of his lordships views on the doctrine of the eucharist and convocation As therein sex the holy in allusion to this matter his lordship said he would beg leave to Call the attention of his clergy to a not immediately connected with their own interesting to the Church at Large in reference to the teaching of the Church itself on the holy eucharist and then our duties in regard to the circumstances which had Given so great a prominence to this on the particulars of the pending controversy he would not enter the clergy would Well understand his silence but he could not pass without some remark on the manner in which they should treat it in their Public and Pri vate he in the first remark that the teaching of the Church of eng land on this subject was in strict agreement with holy scripture and with the Church held that there was a Peculiar and supernatural presence of Christ with his people in that holy sacrament that in it he in and by the fit reception of the consecrated convey to the faithful worshipper the real partaking of his body and his whereby the souls of faithful people were refreshed but the Church taught also that he had not revealed to his people the Mode and condition of that being divine and was not to be made the subject of As though it was governed by the Laws or entailed the consequences of a material As to the manner of christs presence in the holy eucharist the Church gave no but on the contrary protested against the discussion of such questions As being curious and full of danger As being to Lead men fear Ful errors Ami to make them Wise above what is against the errors into which men had been led in this the Church loudly pro she on the one the Zwingli an which would resolve the reality of christs presence into a quickened apprehension on the part of the devout worshipper on the other she condemned the papal solution of the which taught those of the grosser sort with the bread and the body and blood of Christ were while it instructed those who were More educated that in the process of consecration the bread and wine while the body and blood of Christ took their this doctrine of whether in its grosser or More fanciful had led to Many dangerous superstitions and was con sequently reprobate by our from these they might easily gather what was their duty with regard to this they should first of All insist upon the reality and truth of that supernatural presence which our lord had graciously pleased to vouchsafe in that sacrament to the worthy they should discourage to the utmost of Power All speculations in reference to and they should condemn that specific form of erroneous teaching which out Church Hai actually at the same they should guard against a dog Matisin spirit towards those who differed from them and they should labour to Lead the people from curious questions As to that which was eminently a mystery to be received humbly and with and not to be argued out by the subtleties of the and if at any from Circum stances which might they were compelled to enter into further explanations with regard to that great he would wave them to keep closely to the letter of the and to the scriptural View of the doctrine and for instead of speculating As to what was received by the unfaithful in the lords or Dogma Tising As to unfavourable influences upon matters on which holy scripture was they should teach that our lords Promise was sure and that where the appointed rite was performed in All its there was con and reception of the elements there would be a proper partaking but they had no right to Stop at any particular after any particular prayer for and to argue that at that time the divine presence was which was promised to the due and not to any particular revival of the right reverend prelate next proceeded to say that there was a Point which had peculiarly marked the history of the Church for the list few years which he considered to be of the greatest the revival of the Active duties of the convocation of the province of the clergy would doubtless think it desirable that he should of Binally express his opinions of that subject on such an occasion As the per haps the easiest Way in which he could treat of this great subject would be to Survey what were the chief obstacles assigned by the opponents of the first objection he Wuu notice that All Church councils were and that All ecclesiastical history proved that there had been strife upon strife when ecclesiastical councils had whereas there Woald have been none without As to that general this general answer ought to that they could gather from gods word and primitive Antiquity that these councils were part of the Constitution of the Church of it was Given first to the then to their that they should meet in Council this was tha Constitution of the Church As they found it inthe inspired records of the first Council a that councils were held in earlier times might als be proved from the fact that when Anjer difficulties arose the and Brethren care Toge ther to consult upon the not doubling but that the holy would Aid and direct their such instances were surely sufficient for Jiny one who believed in the acts of the Apo Atlea As re corded in the nor was Thieve anything in the argument that the time of the Council was always a time of they were times Elf strife in which councils were and which indeed led to their As Well might it be said that the presence of a judge in a court of a led to or encouraged it was argued that the convocation was not a Council of the but was merely a civil originally called in order that the clergy might take measures for providing for their Sucre of and that it now had no real business As the clergy no longer taxed but such was not the Case for they had records of convocation in Saxon and Norman and indeed from the earliest periods of the history of the he was purely an ecclesiastical body it was the archbishops provincial called in virtue of his spiritual Power according to ancient custom and thus it de dared itself to be in one of the solemn prayers appointed to be used at the opening of every the next objection urged was that there were no suf Wicent grounds for its assembling he sup meant that there was nothing in the Church system which required and if there the changes should be brought about by other persons rather than the clergy but surely neither of these positions could be most men would admit in order to secure the peace and efficiency of the it was most desirable to reconsider the existing body of As they at present nobody could it would be admitted also that it was necessary to reconsider and perfect the rubrics which were originally framed for the purpose of producing uniformity but a consequence of the circumstances of the had unsettled a multitude of whilst they had become the occasions of strife and the badges of party these differences might be settled at once by a judicious reconsideration of the there a multitude of questions to be settled which endangered the position of the Church in the and which would make the if she submitted to them without Remon guilty of the loss of souls through her negligence would have been it was in order that such works As these might be for warded that he rejoiced to see the Progress that had been made towards the revival of the Active duties of there was much Good to be and he believed it could Only be effected through that if it were to been trusted to any other it must be to the houses of or to a commission scially issued for the to the first of these lie because every Day proved that parliament was unfit to take the work in the subject required close for which parliament had not parliament had nor did not pretend to a sufficient acquaintance with the details to Render it fit for legislation

without the adoption of that course there could be no Hope of a peaceful he believed that the Only Means of placing upon a firm basis the internal policy of the Church was to be found in her own there were matters requiring immediate action on the part of those that to no other body could the discussion of the matter be so Well unless this Power were he believed the Church would sink into a torpor and a fatal but sometimes the objection took a More definite that convocation was a party question and ought not to be to some extent it was a party for it be longed to that party which was the Church and without the exertions of which it must inevitably it had been urged that these councils would do Little More than encourage polemic strife but Why should this be the Case it was not to to supposed that the clergy were the Only men who could not discuss their affairs with quietness and the present convocation certainly afforded no ground for such an the Church had no new Faith to new Church to
