THE CONTINUITY QUESTION.
THE CONTINUITY QUESTION. THE ANCIENT BRITISH CHURCH. To the Editor of the" BARRY DOCK NEWS." SIB,—As the I; Italian Mission are so busy in England and Wales, trying to make out that the Roman Church has a claim upon the English Church on account of its precedence in Britain, the following will expose the fallacy of such an imposture :-When, in December, 1559, the deprived Popish bishops warned Queen Elizabeth not to listen to those who persuaded her to embrace schisms, heresies in lieu of the ancient Catholic Faith," she replies in these terms Our realm and subjects have long been wanderers, walking astray, whilst they were under the tuition of Romish pastors, who advised them to own a wolf for their head (in lieu of a careful shepherd), whose inventions, heresies, and schisms be so numerous that the flock of Christ have fed on poisonous shrubs for want of wholesome pas- tures. And whereas you hit us and our subjects in the teeth that the Romish Church first planted the Catholic faith within our realms, the records and chronicles of our realm testify to the contrary, and your Romish idolatry maketh you liars. Witness the ancient monument of Gildas, unto which both foreign and domestic have gone in pilgrimage there to offer.Strype's Ann, ch. XI., I., I., 217. Dr Lingard, a Roman Catholic historian, writes that before the close of the second century Christianity had even penetrated amongst the independent tribes of the North of England (" His. of Eng. vol. I., chap. I., p. 36. Lond. 1855) and in page 37 that a regular hierarchy had been instituted before the end of the third century. Theodoret says that St. Paul, after visiting Spain (Rom. XV., 28), brought salvation to the isles which lie in the ocean." Tertullian says that the Kingdom of Christ was advanced in Gaul and Britain, and that Christ was solemnly worshipped by the inhabitants (Tertull., C. Jud., ch. 7). Cardinal Baronius, the Roman annalist, thinks that St. Peter preached the gospel in Great Britain (Annales Ann. 51, 58 n). Eusebius asserts that some of the apostles preached the gospel in the British Isles (Euseb. Dem. Evang. lib. 3, ch. 7). The Greek, Roman, Gallican, and British-and probably the Welsh and Irish-Churches were all planted within the the Apostolic age, so that none of them can boast which of them is the greatest. (Mark IX., 34). The Nineteenth Article of our Reformed Church, in effect, declares the Greek and Roman Churches to be in a state of fatal apostasy, and the homily for Whitsunday (Part II.) calls the papacy the kingdom of Antichrist. We are not so much indebted to Rome for our religious orders as for our disorders. Charles Knight, in his celebrated History of England, vol. I, page 69, quoting from Bede, Book II.. ch. 6, says, "He (i.e., Bede) records that Augustine the monk in 597 (not St. Augustine of 400 A.D., the good Evangelical Bishop of Hippo), performed a miracle (in harmony with the impostures of the Romish Church), which greatly moved the British clergy to listen to him but that one offence against the spirit of the gospel made them reject his authority. The British clergy consulted a certain holy and discreet hermit as to whether they should acknowledge Augustine, whereupon he replied that if he be a man of God follow him. How," said they, are we to know that 1" He replied, Our Lord said, Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me, for I am meek and lowly of heart.' If, therefore, Augustine is meek and lowly, it is to be believed that he has taken the yoke of Christ, and offers it to you to take upon yourselves." Again the British clergy ask the anchorite, "How shall we know this? He replied, "Arrange it so that at the conference he and his company shall arrive first, and if at your approach he shall rise up to meet you, he is a servant of Christ. But if he despise you, who are greater in number, let him be condemned of you." They applied the test, and Augustine did not rise. There was, therefore, no sort of union between them. The monk Augustine, in revenge, stirred up the Saxons against the British, and destroyed their ancient Church. The British bishops would not conform to the Popedom, and told Augustine that they were willing to respect the Bishop of Rome as any other bishop, but at present they were under the Bishop of Chester, to cause them," said they, to keep the way spiritual," which resulted in the massacre of 1,200 (some say 2,000) monks of Bangor, probably British clergy, who, owing to the Saxon invasion which Augustine stirred up, had escaped into Wales. As the saying is, The Britishers turned their episcopal tails and found a retreat in the mountains of Wales." The passage in Bede which says Augustine was dead at the time is supposed to be an interpolation (see Knight's English History, vol. 1). It was soon after this that the English Church fell under the great Romish apostasy and oppression which did wear out the saints of the Most High (Dan. vii., 25), until God delivered her at the Reformation through the blood of the noble army of martyrs," when she obeyed the call in Rev. xviii., 4, to come out of the mystic • Babylon that she be not partaker of her sins, and receive not of her plagues." Therefore, when Papists ask us the question, "Where was your Church before the Reforma- tion ? we reply, Where was your face before it was washed ?"—Yours, etc., "M.A. (CANTAB.) To the Editor of the BARRY DOCK NEWS." DEAR SIR,-I am afraid that A. E. P. Ross has lost his temper. It were better he had not done so, seeing that the cause he has undertaken to uphold requires a cool head and plenty of crafty resource. Your readers cannot have failed to observe one peculiarity of his productions, namely, that he seldom, or never, quotes an authority, but con- stantly makes unsupported statements against the Mother Church of England. If I accuse him of making false assertions he has but himself to blame. How silly and ignorant, too, he shows himself in his remarks on the statement that priests became ministers." My Bible speaks of the priests, the Lord's ministers." The Latin vulgate has sacerdotes, ministri Domini," but, of course, all this is nothing to the blindly zealous A. E. P. Ross in his unrighteous anger No doubt whatever is there that the Church of England has valid orders and a true priesthood, nay, she has more—a faithful Christian ministry. I can quote Dr Lingard (a Romanist historian, and, I believe, priest) in support of this, but" A. E. P. Ross" seems to believe chiefly in his own infallibiilty, so it might be of no avail. Through- out the controversy A. E. P. Ross has evinced a most onesided spirit. He appears, indeed, to have perused the little history he has read with his right eye shut. As a fresh instance of this let me mention his statements about the suppressed monasteries. No doubt these had done good and charitable work amongst the poor of England at one time, and a few of them even were doing it at the period just before the Reformation; but the vast majority of them had become infamously corrupt and were a disgrace to Christendom. In fact, the Reformation itself is a proof of their failure in duty. As I said before, I have no wish to defend Henry VIII. and his supporters I do not believe him to have been infallible or impeccable, ex cathedra or elsewhere. God used him to punish those who had introduced gross corruptions into our National Church from the alien Church of Rome. The histories of Italy and other Romanist countries supply similar evidences of gross corrup- tion, but probably A. E. P. Ross has not been introduced to these fields of study. If your correspondent is so fond of England, why does he sneer at the good old English word parson. Perhaps he supposes it to be a post- reformation term, but I am sure that when he knows a little more about our literature he will change his mind. I confess I know absolutely nothing about him whom A. E. P. Ross calls the "Protestant Cobbett," and that seems to be very little less than your correspondent, who, nevertheless, with his usual brazen hardihood, quotes him against me. But, then, that is always the way with the Romish bchool. Let me, in conclusion, say that I always sta'e good Catholic doctrine," and, therefore, regard it as a heinous error to say of one never more than a woman Mary is our only refuge, help, and asylum." At the command of the Virgin all things obey, even God." Is not this extreme blasphemy ? Does A. E. P. Ross" imagine that his dictum about the law of the Church must be accepted by me ? Pray, sir, let us know who is this very great man !—Yours in the One Faith, A PRIEST OF THE UNDIVIDED CHURCH.
