St Saviour Church - Bath Somerset

THE ARCHDEACON'S ADDRESS
The Ven. Lancelot Fish in his address spoke first of those whom they honoured and saluted that day. That cross would be a perpetual reminder not only of our Blessed Lord's redeeming love, but of the sacrifcice made by brave soldiers. He had been reminded that the cross was in the form of St Martin's cross. St Martin was himself a soldier, and it was dedicated appropriately enough upon St Martin's Day. He believed that those whom they were commemorating were worthy of having a cross as their memorial; that they died most of them consciously, many no doubt unconsciously, in the spirit of Him of Whom it was said 'He saved others, Himself He could not save'. Those flowers might fade, that granite itself might perish, but those who had lifted our poor human nature to the loftiest possible pedestal of purpose, duty and achievement had taken their place among the immortal. 'Their name liveth for evermore'.
