A RITUALISTIC CLERGYMAN ON EPISCOPAL ISOLATION. Thd present Bishop of Rochester is by no means in favour with the ritualistic portion of his clergy in that part of his diocese situated in South London, and some time ago he publicly stated that ho should leave certain churches in a state of "isola- tioa." He has so far kept his word, never, on any occasion, having officiated or visited several well- knower ritualist churches in the neighbourhood of Kennington, Walworth, and Camberwell since his appointment as bishop. At a festival held at St. Austin's Priory, New Kent Road, Father Nagee, the provost, commented very freely on the courso which the bishop has thought it right to adopt. The pro- vost said he felt that he was isolated there. The Bishop of Rochester said that isolation was his prin- ciple. Did they ever hear of such a principle P Did they ever hear of a bishop saying," this is my policy. I shall go to America, and take myself from you." [The bishop is at present on a visit to America.] If that was the policy or the principle of the shepherd of the church, then he (Provost Nugee) did not know what a shepherd meant at all. A shepherd was a man who was popularly supposed to know his sheep; he did not insolate them. The Bishop of Rochester knew him and his congregation. He hAd said to the bishop, "Come and judge for yourself* But no, he simply "isolated" himself. p WaS ^le ac^on a true bishop of the church of God, then he (the speaker) did not know what that church was. The church was simply bowing to public opinion, and he hoped the time would come when the bishops—about whom he did not wish to speak in unkind words—would see how fatal was this policy of isolation which the Bishop of Rochester spoke about. When a man spoke in such a wsy, he could not be aware of his responsibility, and the real duties of his office.
