Τίς οὖν ἄρα ἡ χάρις, ἢ πάντως ἡ τοῦ ἁγίου Πνεύματος χύσις ἡ ἐν ταῖς
καρδίαις ἡμῶν γινομένη, κατὰ τὴν τοῦ Παύλου φωνήν . . . αὐτουργὸν ἄρα
τὸ Πνεῦμα ἐν ἡμῖν, ἀληθῶς ἁγιάζον καὶ ἑνοῦν ἡμᾶς ἑαυτῷ διὰ τῆς πρὸς
αὐτὸ συναφείας, θείας τε φύσεως ἀποτελοῦν κοινωνούς.

S. CYRIL. ALEX. Thesaur. de Trin. Assert. xxxiv.

Si dicatur: In sanctam Ecclesiam Catholicam, hoc est intelligendum secun-
dum quod fides nostra refertur ad Spiritum Sanctum, qui sanctificat Ecclesiam, ut
sit sensus: Credo in Spiritum Sanctum sanctificantem Ecclesiam.

TO THE CONGREGATION

OF THE

OBLATES OF S. CHARLES,

IN THE

DIOCESE OF WESTMINSTER.

REVEREND AND DEAR FATHERS,

To whom can I more fittingly dedicate the following pages than to you, with whom I have spent eight of the happiest years of my life? If the book has no worth in itself, at least it will express my affection. It was written last year under the quiet roof of S. Mary of the Angels, at a time when I had no thought of being parted from you; if, indeed, I may call that a parting which, though it suspends our daily and hourly meeting in community, unites us doubly in the bonds of mutual confidence and service. Nevertheless, though written in other days, I see no reason why it should not be published now.
