JOHN HENRY NEWMAN, M.A.
VICAR OF ST. MARY THE VIRGIN's, OXFORD,
AND FELLOW OF ORIEL COLLEGE.
FOR THE FESTIVALS OF THE CHURCH.
“ Well to celebrate these Religious and Sacred Days, is to spend the flower of our time
happily. They are the splendour and outward dignity of our religion, forcible witnesses
of ancient Truth, provocations to the exercises of all piety, shadows of our endless felicity
in heaven, on earth everlasting records and memorials; wherein they which cannot be
drawn to hearken unto that we teach, may, only by looking upon that we do, in a manner
read whatsoever we believe.”-HOOKER, ECCLES. POL. v. 71.
