Pàgina 90 - Have we any right to take it strange if, in this English land, the spring-time of the Church should turn out to be an English spring : an uncertain, anxious time of hope and fear, of joy and suffering, of bright promise and budding hopes, yet withal of keen blasts, and cold showers, and sudden storms?
Pàgina 166 - York, on the 16th of March, 1588-9. Dr. Champney, in his manuscript history, " ad annum Elizab., 31," gives the following account of them. 'This year, on the 1 6th of March, John Amias and Robert Dalby, priests of the college of Douay, suffered at York, as in cases of high treason, for no other cause but that they were priests, ordained by the authority of the see of Rome, and had returned into England, and exercised there their priestly functions for the benefit of the souls of their neighbours....

It was as though so great a woman, feared as she was by the unclean spirit, could not be dispatched unless she herself were willing.
Pàgina 61 - have pity on my grey head - have pity on me your father, if I deserve to be called your father, if I have favoured you above all your brothers, if I have raised you to reach this prime of your life. Do not abandon me to be the reproach of men. Think of your brothers, think of your mother and your aunt, think of your child, who will not be able to live once you are gone. Give up your pride! You will destroy all of us! None of us will ever be able to speak freely again if anything happens to you.
Pàgina 64 - When are we going to be thrown to that heifer or whatever it is?" When told that this had already happened, she refused to believe it until she noticed the marks of her rough experience on her person and her dress. Then she called for her brother and spoke to him together with the catechumens and said: "You must all stand fast in the faith and love one another, and do not be weakened...
