Addleshaw in 1941

"Worship has become divorced from the ordinary life of the world. There appears to be no relation between what is done at the altar and the grim realities of everyday working life. Again this is due to tendencies present both in Catholicism and Protestantism since the Reformation, which the secularist exclusion of dogma from the world of politics and economics has only accentuated."--GWO Addleshaw, The High Church Tradition, Introduction.

Addleshaw wrote this in 1941, the year before William Temple, pictured above, became Archbishop of Canterbury.
