ITEODUCTOET. 1. In a hymn of Dr. eale's for All Saints,' writ- ten shortly before his death, he turns to the differ- ent choirs of the Saints — the Martyrs, Confessors, Virgins, Doctors — asking of each the means by which they attained their sanctity and fulfilled their several Yocations. The reply of each group is of course, in effect, Through Christ that strengthened us ; He was in us the hope of glory, the power of victory. The Doctors, the great champions of the Faith, are begged to tell us how the lore to gain, by which they established the Truth, and crushed down heresy amain. This is their answer : " In the Cross we found our pulpit, In the Seven Great Words our lore ; Dying gift of dying Master, Which once uttered all was o'er ; Pillars seven of sevenfold wisdom, Sion's safeguard evermore." '"Christ's own martyrs, valiant cohort," in Original Hymns and Sequences, by Kev. J. M, eale, D.D, (Hayes.) 8 ITRODUCTORY. It is somewhat in this light that I would ask you this Good Friday to listeu to the Words of our Lord from the Cross, as declaring the true regard —
God's and man's — of the chief objects that we have to meet in the world, the things and persons with which we have to do : Sinners, Penitents, Friends, Sin, Pain, Work. The true regard of each of these we will try to learn, viewed from the stand-2)oint of the Cross. 2. God's view and man's, I say. Jesus is God and man. Ever from the moment of the Incarna- tion, as He lay cradled all lowly in Bethlehem, or in Mary's arms, or stretched on the hard bed of the Cross, we worship Him as true God and true Man. He is the W^ord made flesh, God of the essence of the Father, revealed in human flesh, showing forth the Divine perfections, translating them into language — the language of action — intelligible to us, declaring and making known the invisible God.* And Man He is of the substance of His mother, the ideal, pat- tern man, the true Representative of Humanity. Our Lord as the Incarnate Word, the Son of God and the Son of Man, is the revelation at once of what God is, and of what man, made in God's image, should be. The centurion's exclamation declared the S. John i. 14; 2 Cor. iv. 4. ITEODUCTORY. 9 truth, a fuller truth than he recognized, Truly this T\'as God's Son, a Kighteous Man.' From Him we would learn, and from His utterances on the Cross unspeakably solemn. All bare witness to His gra- cious words. one ever spake like this Man.
