It may be quite true, as one for whom we entertain the highest respect has kindly taken the trouble to impress upon us, that “to indulge in any raptures in public, in consequence of the judgment, or in any kind of exulting demonstration, would be bad policy, because inconsistent with our principles as Catholic churchmen; and we do not wish or expect the world even, let alone the church, to learn doctrine, or ritual, or anything else pertaining to the things of God, in such a quarter. We ignored,” our friend continues, “the last judgment, and the Low Church party will ignore this. And so Privy Council judgments on church doctrine will come to be altogether ignored, which will be a good thing. The more exultation, the more it would seem as if we thought that Catholic doctrine was quivering in the balance,—which would certainly not set forth to the world our faith in the Truth, or much confidence in ourselves.” With all this, in the main, we are not indisposed to agree. We have felt from the first how desirable it is to shape our conduct in the matter, as Church journalists, as much as possible by so sound a principle as that which we have here transcribed exhibits. Still it is not unimportant to keep in mind such a result as that of the judgment in question, and to dwell upon it, and point to it, in so far as is consistent with such a principle; for certainly the moral effect of such a judgment by the Judicial Committee is by no means insignificant, even in the interests of Catholic Truth, and of the Church as the “pillar and ground of the Truth.” If only to save the catholic clergy of our church from further persecution for holding and teaching Catholic Truth, the effect of the judgment is not by any means to be despised.
