Appendix. St. Augustine's Memorial Chapel.
The object of this book is not only to give such information concerning the Order of the Holy Cross as its friends may desire, but also to present, in brief, the immemorial principles of the monastic life as exemplified in a practical manner in a Religious Community operating in the Anglican Church in the twentieth century. In other words, the intention has been to interpret the life of the cloister for our own time.
The Church, as never before perhaps in her history, needs trained men, who are free to go wherever they may be sent for the work of the kingdom of God. If this book succeeds in showing the vision to young men of our time, and bringing even a few of them to renounce the world for the service of Christ, it will not have been written in vain.
