This à Brakel passage does remind of Gillespie. I think the only reason the AngloCatholics had to go beyond, "remember the King," in pressing votes for the King's Perth articles pressing such things as holy days and in resting in his authority for such things, is because of the strong polemics condemning their ceremonies by Calderwood, etc. Or maybe not; it is not as though the modern AngloCatholics don't use these defenses; or don't they?I have been reading George Gillespie's English Popish Ceremonies on this point, and I doubt that any defender of holy days will ever attempt to answer him. Not only are holy days not commanded in scripture and constitute monuments of idolatry, but they also foster gross superstitions. Gillespie points out that Richard Hooker is driven to defend the holiness of special days and places in order to defend the evangelical feasts days. How anyone can read Colossians and Galatians - not to mention much else in the New Testament - and defend such foolishness is beyond me.
