I Magnify Mine Office

Excerpt from I Magnify Mine Office: A Sermon, Preached in the Cathedral Church of Ripon, on Sunday, the 19th Day of Sept., 1847, at the General Ordination of the Lord Bishop of Ripon When we converse with musicians, they so magnify their office in their own minds, that they confound with intellect itself, a just appreciation of musical sounds, and suppose that to the art of the performer and the science of music, all other arts and sciences must be rendered subservient. It is indeed a part of man's nature to magnify to himself the importance of any pursuit in which he is engaged, and until he does so, he will neither devote to it the energies of his mind, nor labor with success. When we see ecclesiastics, though pledged to lay aside all other studies except those which bear upon the study of Theology, dedicating all their mental powers to the fascinating pursuits of literature or science; when we see others affecting a secularity of dress and deportment, hurried first into the follies of life, and through them involved in more grave offences of commission as well as omission, we may trace the lamentable fact not only to the existence of an uncon verted heart, but to that other fact, that they have never viewed in a proper light the awful importance of those duties which, through their ordination, have devolved upon them. And therefore I conceive that, when called upon by our Spiritual Father to address those whom he is about to admit into the Sacred Ministry, I cannot select a more appropriate text than those few words which I have read to you, or address you with more probability of profit to your souls, than by entreating you now and at all periods of life, to reflect with seriousness, and deliberation, upon the magni tude, in its functions and in its responsibilities, of that office which is about to be imposed upon you, by the Laying on of Hands.
