JAnaury 17 is the day Charles Gore, sometime Bishop of Oxford, died in 1932. Although Anglo-Catholic, he could be quite liberal in theology, as well as anti-Papal. He was, however, a co-founder of the Mirfield Fathers – which has given the Church at least one illustrious convert, the late Msgr. Augustine Hoey, whom I had the honour to meet once, many years ago. But he also wrote a pamphlet attacking the 1930 Lambeth Council’s reversal on birth control. As a defence of the traditional Christian teaching on contraception, it belongs next to “Humanae Vitae” or Halliday Sutherland’s “Birth Control.” For that alone he deserves some gratitude!
