Excerpt from Validity of Anglican Ordinations Examined: Or, a Review of Certain Facts Regarding the Consecration of Mathew, Parker, First Protestant Archbishop of CanterburyIf, then, it can be shown that these principles are of, at least, very dubious application to the church which these Divines would willingly invest with the privileges contained in the commission given by Christ to his apostles; if it can be shown that it is, to say the very least, an extremely doubtful matter, whether the very root and basis of the principle of church authority, - a validly ordained ministry, - subsists in the Anglican Church; surely those who are sincere in the maintenance of such a principle will turn their eyes towards that Great Church, through which they claim to have derived their orders, but which has constantly refused to acknowledge the validity of their ordinations.Another motive which had its influence with the writer of the following examination, was a sincere desire to promote what can never be a hopeless project to the Christian heart, - the re-union of the Anglican with the Catholic Church. At first, indeed, it might appear, that the present publication is calculated to mar, rather than promote, the accomplishment of so desirable an object, on account of the bitter feelings it may excite, especially among the clergy, whose judgment cannot but be somewhat influenced by their personal interest in the controversy.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
