Weighed and Wanting (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Excerpt from Weighed and Wanting It was a gray, windy noon in the beginning of autumn. The sky and the sea were almost of the same colour, and that not a beautiful one. The edge of the horizon where they met was an edge no more, but a bar thick and blurred, across which from the unseen came troops of waves that broke into white crests, the flying manes of speed, as they rushed at, rather than ran towards the shore: in their eagerness came out once more the old enmity between moist and dry. The trees and the smoke were greatly troubled, the former because they would fain stand still, the latter because it would fain ascend, while the wind kept tossing the former and beating down the latter. Not one of the hundreds of fishing boats belonging to the coast was to be seen; not a sail even was visible, not the smoke of a solitary steamer ploughing its own miserable path through the rain-fog to London or Aberdeen. It was sad weather and depressing to not a few of the thousands come to Burcliff to enjoy a holiday which, whether of days or of weeks, had looked short to the labour-weary when first they came, and was growing shorter and shorter, while the days that composed it grew longer and longer by the frightful vitality of dreariness. Especially to those of them who hated work, a day like this, wrapping them in a blanket of fog, whence the water was every now and then squeezed down upon them in the wettest of all rains, seemed a huge bite snatched by that vague enemy against whom the grumbling of the world is continually directed out of the cake that by every right and reason belonged to them.

The Jesuits in History (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The Jesuits in History When Ignatius Loyola appeared on the scene at the time of the great world crisis known as the Reformation, the fervent Romanist might well exclaim - the hour has come and the man! For Rome the hour had certainly come in a different sense than her devotees believed - the hour when she was being weighed in the balance and found wanting. The dissoluteness of her various orders, her shameless traffic in holy things, the political as well as spiritual despotism which she wielded over individuals - these proved so much combustible material which only needed the match of Luther to set ablaze. In its desperation, in its hour of direst need, the Papacy looked around for help to stop the world-wide conflagration. The hour of humiliation had come. Where was the man.
