“I do not think that the controversy of the present day is with Superstition. I do think the controversy of the present day is with growing Infidelity, and I do think that if the Clergy of this our Church are not equal to the emergency, some great catastrophe will befall not only the Church but the Nation.”-ARCHBISHOP Tait's CHARGE IN CANTERBURY CATHEDRAL, September 26, 1876.
