Its theory is the Sacred Writings of the Apostles and Evangelists of Jesus Christ; its practice, the life of the Christian. The Christian profession is not now what it once was. It has become secular and sectarian. The members of the church of Christ were formerly called "saints," "elect of God," "a chosen generation," "a royal priesthood," "a peculiar people." Now they are called "Churchmen," "Dissenters," "Romanists," "Protestants," "Episcopalians," "Presbyterians," "Independents," "Baptists," "Methodists," &c. &c. &c.

It was a "holy nation" whose citizens had their citizenship in heaven...." - Introduction from Christian Baptism: With Its Antecedents And Consequents

When she returned to court he gave her a series of written spiritual instructions, which he had begun to compile as early as 1602, for the guidance of persons seeking to live a devout life in the world. These instructions were shown to Pere Jean Fourier of the Society of Jesus, who considered them 'a treasure of devotion', and so valuable that he strongly urged St. Francis to have them printed, with the result that the first edition, edited by St. Francis, was issued in 1609 under the title Introduction a la Vie Devote...."
