That is the common refrain of those who have passed through this place. That, indeed, is the aim of the Christian life, to be changed from glory to glory, into the likeness of the God who has created us and who calls us to Himself. That is the purpose of the sacramental life which is the foundation, and heart-beat, of the life of Pusey House: baptism, the Eucharist, the other sacraments of the Church, all set in the context of the regular, routine encounter with the converting power of the Word of God in the recitation of the Daily Offices. John Betjeman, in his verse-autobiography Summoned By Bells, famously put it like this:
Those were the days when that divine baroque
Transformed our English altars and our ways.
Fiddle-back chasuble in mid-Lent pink
Scandalized Rome and Protestants alike …
Despite my frequent lapses into lust,
Despite hypocrisy, revenge and hate,
I learned at Pusey House the Catholic faith.
There is no recent news.
