01Jul1867, Refreshing Service at Fulham

LONDON, July 1st, 1867.
—There was a beautiful, refreshing service at Fulham, for the members of the Ladies' Association ; a short earnest sermon from the Bishop (who had to deliver it sitting), and the Blessed Communion. The happy feeling came strongly over me that, under all the miserable disagreements, there is in the Church a deep foundation of mysterious, holy union ; the belief, whether defined in this way or that, of the near and consoling Presence of our Lord when we receive His Sacrament. Thank God for that Blessed Faith, uniting His whole visible Church each member to each, and all to Him.
