AMoreExcerpt from The Ampleforth Journal, Vol. 18There are many reasons why I feel it a consolation, and at the same time somewhat of a trial, to be allowed to address you on this fiftieth anniversary of the main building of this College of Ampleforth.

A jubilee is primarily a festival of thanksgiving- but to those who have lived through the period that it includes, it brings back the memory of many hard lessons learnt, and the admonition of the lapse of years that have gone by for ever. Nevertheless it is good to recall the past. The oldest of all canticles exhorts the chosen people of God: Remember the days of old- bring to mind each generation that is past- question thy father and he shall recount to thee, thy elders and they shall tell thee. (Deut. xxxii, 7.) In all history the Christian heart may trace thew working of the Spirit of God for the instruction and the saving of men - even in the short half century of Christian history that has elapsed since we opened what, in 1861, we lovingly called the New College.As all may see this very day, that building seems fairly as fresh to-day as it was fifty-one years ago, and as fitted for its work.

It is true, there was one disastrous time, fraught with apprehension, when this treacherous hill-side nearly wrecked it. But it has survived that danger, and it seems likely, with fair play, to last, not only fifty years longer, but for a reasonable number of centuries- re-inforced, no doubt, as it has been, and will be, with other scholastic buildings, but always a good and substantial citadel of a scholastic life and activity which we pray may be prolonged far into the days to come.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
