children and seruants should bee a prey to the Harpies of Rome that vipers should eat out their substance dispoile them of the meanes of the true knowledge of Christ All these things vnlesse they keepe you still muffled you may easily discerne Are they not Lords not onely ouer your faith but also your inheritance 1 Pet. 5. although according to the rule of their Canonist Praelatio ecclesiastica ministerium habet non dominium Linwood The Priests and Iesuites in their bookes pretend that they are seruants to those ouer whom indeed they lord it Their office binds them nay the Iesuites vow ties them to Seruice rather then Dominion How is it possible mee thinks that they should bring you to that seruitude as I find they doe so subiugate your vnderstanding and imprison your wills that if they command any thing quamuis adinteritum animaeet corporis you are readie to obey them and doe they not accordingly make vassals and slaues of you Good-Friday cheere A Procession from Holborne to Tiburne Yesterday being Good-friday this present yeere 1624. they made some of you in the Morning before day goe in Procession to Tiburne in penitentiall manner the forme of which is for a man to walke naked from the girdle vp ward and scourge himself with a whip The same day twelue-month last past at a place of your solemne meeting in London you made one whip himself so long till he swouned and was thought to bee past hope of recouery so that hot water was instantly fetched to reuiue him At Bruxels as a Priest told mee saying hee saw it and boasting of the meritorious work a woman about a yeere since so cruelly scourged her selfe that shee died of it Is this Mortification to murther our selues lest sinne murther vs to abolish our life in the flesh lest wee should liue after the flesh I am no enemy vnto austerity of life and taming or chastening our bodily sinfull members Rom. 5. to bring them in subiection to the spirit to abate the lusts of the eye and pride of life to depose the Tyrant sinne from his dominion whatsoeuer tendeth this way for the better whetting of our members to become weapons of righteousnes I wish were more rather then lesse vsed in our reformed Churches so it bee without the opinion of merit without publike ostentation without excesse and vnnaturall hating and disabling our corporal faculties Such kind of enormous flagellant Tragedies proue sometime as absurd remedies against sinne as a Philosopher did bring against sicknes who visiting his diseased friend that complained of the irksomnesse of his disease and desired his aduice for curing the same or easing his paine departed from him and shortly came againe and told him hee had brought a medicine to cure all his diseases and rid him of paine The Patient hearing that welcome word promised hee would take the medicine To whom presently this Kil-cow Physicion shewed vnder the lap of his coate a short sword which would make short worke To say no more of this outrageous deuotion as it is Baalaiticall Like Baals Priests who did lance their sides c. wee cannot vnlesse wee winke but see it is also Pharisaicall If bitter chastisement in this case be requisite why should it not bee performed as priuately as our Sauiour inioyneth Mat. 6. secret prayer in the Clozet the doore shut c Must this be done before hundreds of spectatours Yes verily else the price of the satisfaction the glory of the merit the ouer-weight of supererogation would be made lighter by many an ounce And indeed as in this so in all the rest of the whole pageant of Popery euery thing must bee theatricall ad pompam else the gazing Vulgar would not be so frequently and easily caught Lastly if such inioyned penances must be performed in an ambling fashion with rouing abroad would no other place serue to gad vnto but Tiburne Is no other place in England left sacred and vnpolluted Oh but there is more vertue in the goale they runne vnto then in the race they vndertake It was antient to visit memorias Martyrum and so the sending of Disciples to visit Tiburne maketh a deep impression in their mindes of the Saint-ship of some that haue there paid their debt to our Lawes Wee know Martyr and Persecutor are Correlatiues and so in this action of pretended humiliation there is intended an increase of the Romanists hatred against the Church and State of England as persecuting and guilty of the bloud of those whom they adore Thus euery step in such pilgrimage makes those Penitents to walke further from vs nay in euery stripe voluntarily receiued in that Iourney the Confessor that inioyned this performance thinkes hee scourgeth the Protestants Deare Country-men let mee in the spirit of meeknesse out of the tendernesse of my heart and affection inlarged toward you a little intreat you to consider how you are hood-winkt and disguised Doe yet at last lay your hands on your hearts and loath these despicable Impostors returning vnto the truth and assuring your selues that neuer any true Religion did assist and credit it selfe by such iuggling shifts tricks and deuices as the Iesuiticall brood are obserued daily to practise and many of which I am sure they shame to heare of The Periury of Tho Cornford Iesuite For example Blush they not at this that one Thomas Cornford a brother of theirs examined before my Lords Grace of Canterbury Iune 25. 1612. did first giue vnto himselfe the name of Iohn Vnderwood and so subscribed it affirming that hee was a married man and that hee had married the daughter of one Robinson in Irkinburge where his wife at the time of his Examination remained Hee added also he had beene married vnto her twelue yeers and that hee had by her six children Hee said hee was by condition a Farmer and that hee came to Towne to mooue the Lord Vaux that himselfe might be Tenant to his Lordship for a certaine house and land lying in Irkinburge where his wife Robinsons daughter remained But this fellow after vpon some remorce of conscience or fearing lest his condition and estate might by some other meanes bee discouered doth of himselfe offer to manifest vnto his Grace his condition and profession vnto which as it were on a second examination he is admitted and then acknowledged That for the space of six yeeres hee was brought vp in the Colledge of Rome and that there hee took the orders of Priest-hood according to the manner of that Church and that from thence some 12 yeeres since hee was sent by mission into England where by F. Garnet hee was admitted into the Society of Iesus hee acknowledgeth also that his name was Tho. Cornford and so subscribed the same the second time after that before hee had subsigned by the name of Iohn Vnderwood Will you vnderstand how this ingenuous Iesuite did conciliate such contrary sayings of his Thus hee performed his part
