Catholic Bishops Of Great Britain
Foreword by His Eminence Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor This essential reference catalogues the biographical history and significant events of all Roman Catholic diocesan bishops who have been in office since the Restoration of the Catholic Hierarchy in England and Wales in 1850, and in Scotland since the Restoration in 1878. The work has developed over a number of years into a comprehensive reference guide to over 300 men, ordained in the episcopal order, who have given their life in service to the Church.
Drawing on a wide variety of sources, this book will appeal to all those interested in the general history and origins of the post-Restoration Roman Catholic dioceses in Great Britain, and be of particular use to diocesan archivists and yearbook editors. It presents the information as completely, concisely and consistently as possible. As this book records the episcopal milestones of the last two hundred years, it also stands as a respectful testament to those bishops who have gone before us marked with the sign of faith, who continue to inspire and encourage their living successors in the Roman Catholic Church in Great Britain today. The names of our bishops are to be found in so many local places: in parish histories, on foundation stones, in portraits and in so many memories and retold stories. This book gathers much of that information together, bringing into one volume the briefest details of those many shepherds who have worked among the flock in these lands. Their names continue to live on, and we give thanks to God for the foundations they laid and the work they did: we continue to reap a rich harvest today from their sowing.Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'ConnorArchbishop Emeritus of Westminster About the Author Chris Larsen was born in Croydon in 1977 and attended the John Fisher School, Purley before graduating from UWE, Bristol in 1999. For a few years, he tried a vocation to the priesthood at the Royal English College of St Alban at Valladolid in Spain and it was during this time that an interest in the diocesan history of Great Britain and its various bishops began to emerge. Since then, he has maintained a record of episcopal appointments, which has now developed into a valuable reference resource. Following his return to the UK, Chris settled in Bristol. He still enjoys to travel and has now visited every Roman Catholic cathedral around the country.

It Makes A Difference Being A Catholic
IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE BEING A CATHOLIC And The Difference Is Grace. In this writing there lies not only teaching for the Catholic in his Faith but of hopeful ecumenical discourse with others. This book does begin with the Roman Catholic Church's affirmation that salvation is for all, who are disposed to obey God and live virtuously and righteously (Pope Pius IX, 1863). Then Vatican II lauded the spiritual uprightness of other churches: Eastern and Western, Protestant and Anglican, the Jewish people, also, the Muslim, the Buddhist, and non-believer as well. Witness the growing responsiveness and respect between those of different religious beliefs, especially Catholic and other Christians who share Holy Scripture, belief in a (Triune God, Divinity of Christ, the Resurrection, etc.) though differing on interpretation of others (the Sacraments, Infallibility, Purgatory, etc.). Yet, if salvation is for all, virtuously disposed of any belief, does it matter which faith? Does it make a difference? Yes, and it lies in the invaluable divine gift of sanctifying grace, which from birth to death, comes primarily through reception of the seven sacraments of the one holy catholic and apostolic Church (Nicene Creed).
Gerard Manley Hopkins And Victorian Catholicism
Although largely unknown in his lifetime, Gerard Manley Hopkins was, Jill Muller contends, the 'heart in hiding' of Victorian Catholicism. Investigations of Hopkins's spirituality have too often detached his beliefs from their local habitation in a newly industrialized, historically anti-Catholic and increasingly secular England. This book restores the poet to his full intellectual and literary context by exploring his responses to the writings of his Catholic contemporaries, and by situating the preoccupations, dramas and disappointments of his life in the wider setting of Victorian Catholic culture.
Drawing on historical and cultural studies of Victorian Catholicism, along with Hopkins's writings, Muller shows how the melancholy trajectory of the Jesuit poet's career mimics the deflation of Catholic hopes during the second half of Victoria's reign, as well as the turn within the Roman Church of England from a triumphalist rhetoric of conversion to a more introverted and insular spirituality.
