23 JUNE 1894, Page 25

A very modest little quarterly is the Foreign Church Chronicle

and Renew; but it occasionally contains some readable and informing papers, dealing mainly with Old Catholicism in its various Con- tinental forms. Among the contents of the June number are "The Question of the Sabbath : Continental Yearnings after an English Sunday," by Canon Meyrick ; "The Modern French Church," "The Ancient Church of France in Extremis," and "Italian Church Reform," by Rev. lJgo Janni. The tone of the two last is anything but hopeful ; thus the writer on the Ancient French Church anticipates that its members will respond to the invitation which Pope Leo XIII. has addressed to it by his Brief to the Bishop of Poitiers, July 19th, 1893, and return to the Church of Rome.
