Lachrymae Ecclesiae: The Anglican Reformed Church and Her Clergy in the Days of Their Destitution and Suffering during the Great Rebellion in the Seventeenth Century, by George Wyatt (1844). This chronicle of a sad period in the history of English religion shows ample reason for 'the tears of the church' in its title.

Odds and Ends
A New New Testament: Giles Fraser writes in the Church Times on a Covenant for the Church of England. 'The temptations to produce a new new testament are familiar. [...] Well, I don’t want a new new testament. I’m a baptised believer who wants to gather round the table with others. Open table fellowship was a hallmark of Jesus’s ministry. Anything more restrictive is an insult to orthodoxy.'
The Poorest Deserve the Best: The Archbishop of Canterbury's Christmas Sermon.
The Man Who Went into the West: The Life of R.S. Thomas, by Byron Rogers, is reviewed by David Scott. 'Poets and 20th-century priests live on the edge. Sometimes that is felt as being on the edge of society; at other times on the edge between the spiritual and the natural worlds; and at times as living on the edge of despair. All these three aspects of liminality went some way to shaping R. S. Thomas, and Rogers' book helps us understand that.'
Be Near Me, by Andrew O'Hagan, is reviewed by Mark Oakley. 'Like many clerics, I usually read novels about priests with disappointment. This novel, though, I found haunting, nuanced, and poignantly memorable. It is, believe it or not, very funny, as well as tender, and never judgemental, but it's also relentless in exposing the scream that can be faultlessly cloaked by a confident and cultured clergyman.'

Father Matthew Presents:
YouTube.com is not often where we look for fun in our spiritual life, but the Revd Matthew J. Moretz, new curate at St Paul's Church
in Yonkers, New York, is changing that. His weekly three-minute video blog — brimming with youth, creativity, and humour — is
addictive, like good candy. Do have a taste and see what you think.
