THE ENGLISH CHURCH UNION. Sir,—There is no one, whether Conservative or Radical, who does not feel how utterly the E.C.U. has failed either to excogitate a policy, to guide the perplexed, or to point out a way of escape from the Erastian burden so efficiently laid upon us all.

I know that the Council has, from time to time, contained men of principle and power ; but these, alas ! have been either discreetly overborne or cleverly out-voted by others; while ordinary members have only bad the privilege of paying their subscriptions and abiding by wbat the Council might think fit to determine.

One great unreality has been the technical meeting of ornamental members. True, members met from time to time to discuss the Council's propositions; true, they talked over resolutions and amendments; true, they sometimes disagreed with the Council, and carried their point. But, after all the ordinary members had left the room, as I know hy experience, the Council took good care to treat such action with quiet contempt, and take no notice of it.

I have some reason for believing that the Rev. T. W. Perry, one of the most resolute Ritualistic Erastians, who, in no very good taste, was the first to rush forward with a Case for Lord Penzance, and to gush over wbat he obsequiously calls - The Arches' Court,"-has been at the bottom of much of the mischief which I deplore.

A MEMBER OF THE E.C.U. [Our correspondent should remember (1) that the only organisation in existence for defence of our rights is that which he criticises; and (2) that Churchmen are so grievously divided that any other combined action seems impossible of accomplishment.-Ed. Pilot.)

THE NEW LAMBETH COURT. SIR,-Allow me, while congratulating you on the excellence of your “ Prospectus," to put this plain and simple question to the clergy in general through The Pilot. I have asked my own Rector and can obtain no frank and satisfactory reply.

Lord Penzance has for many years been engaged, under Parliamentary authority, in openly transgressing the express rules of our Prayer Book, by decreeing and pronouncing divorces,- yet (without protest from Convocation), he is now appointed by the two Archbishops to explain the rubrics of that very book. Surely the question for the laity as well as the clergy is—"Can we as Christians submit to be bound either in conscience or in action by his decrees? ”

That is my question, and it seems to me to concern the laity (that is, the flocks of the clergy) quite as much as the Pastors themselves.

John C. BURGESS, M.A. Upper Baker.street, March, 1876

more numerous, since we know that the resurrection of the natural body in its unaltered condition is impossible. I say impossible, because its particles soon become chemically decomposed, resolve into gases, and enter into the bodily structure of an ever-increasing number of other persons. Its molecules, therefore, can never be re-collected, first, because they have no separate, independent existence, and secondly, because they could not be taken from other bodies, of which they form part, without completely marring their integrity. The very idea of such an event is, in the light of modern science, so monstrous and absurd that to repeat “this very flesh," as the wrist-pinchers used to do, is as senseless as the prayer of the lamas and people in Tibet, “Oh! treasure of the lotus ! oh! yes !” Such a charm has this sentence for the Tibetians that lamas, specially selected, travel through the country with mallet and chisel to inscribe the words on rocks and stones and trees. But are those among ourselves more wise tban lamas who inscribe on tablets and tombstones in every church and burial-ground affirmations about the rising of the natural body, which are flat contradictions of the words of the Apostle, “Thou sowest not that body that shall be,” and “It is raised a spiritual body" ?

But here, perbaps, some one will reply, as indeed I find a writer in the Church Review of March 25th saying, “ Not anyone, I suppose, holds that the risen body will be subject to the same conditions as the body now is; our bodies then, like our Lord's, will bave a subtilty and agility they do not now possess.” But this really concedes everything. The change of conditions implies change of structure, and a total absence of atomic integrity. In like manner Perrone says it is not necessary that the risen body should be composed of all and each of the same particles which compose the present body; and St. Thomas Aquinas—the great authority in the Roman Catholic Church-is decisive in his language on this point. He, in effect, gives up altogether the resurrection of the natural body at the last day though he professes to maintain it, for he allows that it will not rise entire; that it will not have animal life; that all will rise in the same age and in an average stature, dwarfs being elated to a full height, giants proportionately depressed, children promoted to a ripe age, and old people restored to youth,—that is, though St. Thomas did not mean it, not having one single molecule they possessed in their mortal life. But I will quote the passages lest I should be thought to misrepresent:

1. The body will not rise entire.

“Non resurget totum, consideratâ totalitate materiæ.” “Totum quod fuit in corpore de veritate humanæ naturæ resurget in ipso ;-- sed quicquid fuerit materialiter in membris, non resurget totum." Summa Minor. Tract. xlvi. Quæstio 80.

2. It will not have animal life.

“Omnes resurgent in diversis sexibus, sicut in diversis staturis ;non autem in vita animali.” Quæstio 81.

3. All will rise in the same age.

“Reducetur humana natura per resurrectionem ad statum ultimæ perfectionis, qui est in juvenili ætate.” Quæstio 81.

4. Defects will be supplied; overgrowths cut down.

“Si virtus formativa propter aliquem defectum non poterat perducere ad debitam quantitatem quæ competit speciei, divina virtus supplebit in resurrectione defectum; sicut patet in nanis; et eadem ratio est de illis qui immoderatæ magnitudinis fuerunt ultra debitum naturæ.” Quæs. tio 81.

5. Noble humours will be substituted for foul superfluities.

"Intestina resurgent in corpore, sicut et alia membra: et plena erunt non quidem turpibus superfluitatibus sed nobilibus humoribus." Questio 80.

Now, Sir, allow me to ask what becomes of this very flesh ” and the wrist-pinchers of old time in view of these statements of the great mediæval divine? If an aged man were suddenly restored to the bloom of youth, we all know that he would not have one atom of his former body.

But if the resurrection of the natural body, as such, is impossible accurding to Scripture, Science, and the Doctors of the Church, in what sense are we to understand the resurrection of the dead? I answer, without hesitation, in that sense which alone harmonises with the Scriptures and removes all the difficulties of the problem. The second coming of our Lord is still perhaps very remote, though the Apostles and early Christians thought it near at hand. Meanwhile the resurrection comes to each man when he dies. We carry about with us a spiritual body, which will rise from the grave of the natural body at the moment of dissolution to be the envelope and organ of the immortal spirit. By this body our identity will be preserved and we shall pass into that sphere of existence for which our antecedents bave prepared us. In this body mary have re-appeared to their brethren on earth, and in this the saints will come from Paradise with our Lord when He shall return according to His promise. There is, as I have shown elsewhere, nothing in this view that is inconsistent with the creeds and formulas of the Catholic Church. Whatever ideas your readers may entertain respecting the true standard of faith and morals, they need not fear that any ultimate authority will ever affirm that natural bodies will rise again in their natural condition when St. Paul says they will not; or that we have not a spiritual body when St. Paul says we have; or that the dead will be raised corruptible, when St. Paul says “ the dead shall be raised incorruptible." If wrist-pinchers, crying “this very flesh !” should urge forward an ecclesiastical decision in the hope of making their extravagant notions triumph; that decision would after long delay, in my opinion, be disappointing to their expectation. I cannot believe it possible that the Church will set herself in direct opposition to the plain and positive teaching of physical science, particularly when those who adhere to the doctrine of the spiritual body, heartily subscribe, as I do, the Creeds of the Church in regard to the resurrection. Those who are now looked on with suspicion in this controversy as innovators or rebels will perhaps ere long be counted among the most conservative, since the explanations which they offer are reconcileable with Scripture, Science and Common Sense, which those of their oppo. nents are not

SEAL OF THE COLLEGE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, CUMBRAE.—This Seal is for the College in the island of Cumbrae, which is devoted to the training of candidates for Holy Orders in the Episcopal Church of Scotland. It was owing to the munificence of the Earl of Glasgow that the College was first built, and for some years the institution remained the property of the Earl, by whose noble liberality it was mainly supported. Recently, however, it has been handed over to a body of trustees, and hence the necessity of a Common Seal. The Seal is threeand-a-half inches in height and vesica-shaped. The style of the design is thirteenth century Gothic. The work represents two arches, supported by a column, over which is a circular opening, in wbich the Holy Dove appears. Under the respective arches stand the figures of St. Andrew and St. Columba. A rupic cross in low relief is seen behind the figures and architecture, overlaying the diaper pattern which covers the surface of the Seal. Beneath the base of the above work is a shield bearing the Arms of the College, which may be briefly described as divided into four quarters, in the first and fourih of which is a device representing on the sea a boat, in which is seated St. Columba, with arms outstretched towards a comet which is seen in the heavens: on the wrist of the Saint's left hand is a dove. This reference is to the introduction of Christianity into Scotland by St. Columba, who in A.D. 565, whilst on the north coast of Ireland, under the guidance of a dove and a comet, was induced to venture out to sea in an open boat, and was brought to the island of Iona, where he preached the Gospel to the Picks, and founded various religious establishments. In the second and third quarterings of the shield the Arms of the Earl of Glasgow are displayed. Around the Seal there runs in Gothic letters the inscription, “Sigillum Commune Collegii Sancti Spiritus Cumbraensis." This Seal bas been executed by Her Majesty's engravers, the Messrs. Wyon, of Regentstreet; and is, without a doubt, one of the most elaborate and splendidlyengraved seals of modern times. As a work of art it deserves the highest commendation.
