Excerpt from The Life and Letters of Thomas Pelham Dale, Sometime Rector of St. Vedast's Foster Lane, City, London, Vol. 1 of 2 And yet in our hearts we know that they suffered and died with the same elation, the same support, as those we reverence. And herein lies the strength of the English Church, that she can acknowledge her errors of government and the weakness of her humanity even while she claims that her mission is divine and her gifts those of the Holy Spirit. Cruel and shortsighted as the interpretations of her rulers have Often been, they are not final, they are confessed as errors, not admired as virtues: they are the earthly stains on her heavenly robe, that may be washed by repentance and atonement. They are, in short, interpretations, more or less faulty, that may conceal but cannot destroy the divinity of her life. It is in this breadth and tolerance that her strength lies - in that power of accepting the good and refusing the evil, of atoning in her hours of calmness for the errors of her moments of agitation. But the constant confession that her dogmas are divine and her actions human, while it gives her the power of clinging to the one and reforming the other, does not ensure future perfection of action, and what has happened may happen again with the same consolation, that no wrong is irretrievable.
