ln April there took place a ceremony that is centuries old, the consecration of our Cathedral. This ceremony
sealed the building as ever given over to God for His worship. It had a further significance. The service through-
out was intended to figure the several steps in building up the Spiritual temple of God in the hearts of His people.
Saint Bernard said, in giving a sermon on the Consecration of a Church, VVhat, then, has been done visibly on
these walls, the same must we spiritually procure in our souls: and if you yvill know, this is the meaning of the sprink-
ling, of the writing. of the lighting up, and of the blessing. These acts has the Bishop performed in this visible house.
This, too, Christ, the High Priest of the good things to come, daily works invisibly in us.
Prayers said in a consecrated Church have a very special efficacy. ln the years to come we shall often echo the
prayer voiced by the Bishop in the liturgy of the consecration, . . . of the greatness of Thy mercy may those who visit
this house find peace with plenty, sobriety and moderation, an overhoyving store and compassion . . . may the blessing
of Thy presence in this place spread to its uttermost boundaries and pervade its porches on every side, . . . may a
gladsome peace, gracious hospitality, a plenteous store, religious reverence, and the abundance of the means of salvation
never fail in this place.
