PROSPECTUS. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 5 September 1829

PROSPECTUS. The rapid increase and respectability of the Roman Catholics in Boston and throughout the New-England States, loudly cal for the publication of a Newspaper, in wide i the Doctrine of the Holy Catholic Church, ever the same, from the Apostolic Age down to our time, may be truly explained, and moderately, but firmly defended. We are fully aware of the crying catunnies, and gross misrepresentations which in this section of our country have been so bng, so unsparingly, so cruelly heaped upon that Church, which alone influenced and directed the world for Sixteen Centuries ; which still, with the exception of a few, sectarian Ciuntries, governs it, and which, unclouded is it ever has been by human passion, unmovei by individual caprice, will continue to shei its pure and hallowed light around the naions of the earth, until Time grows dim, ant nature sinks into universal night. A certain body of men, styling themselves Teachers in Israel, have shamefully abised the credulity an...

TITLE “JESUIT.” [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 5 September 1829

TITLE “JESUIT.” As soon as our Prospectus was published, and it had appeared that we were seriously disposed to issue a Catholic Paper, which was to assume the title of “ Jesuit,” a number of individuals successively called upon us wishing to know why we had taken so odious a title ?—A friend also having been written to and solicited, while it was yet in embryo to procure subscribers to it in his section of the country —the following week, wrote us thus ;—“ I regret the title you have chosen for your Paper: You will pardon me for saying that I regard it as the most injudicious that you could have selected in the wide range of Nomenclature. Custom—penes quern jus normaque loquendi—has, no matter whether right or wrong, affixed a stigma on that name, which cannot easily be washed away.” The same stigma, “whether right or wrong,” has been long, thanks to the misrepresentations and slanders of lying Historians and others, whose particular interest it was to deceive, affixed to the name ...

ON TRUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 5 September 1829

ON TRUTH. If for a moment we reflect upon ourselves, and analyse the various tastes and subtile inclinations of our nature, we will readily discover that we are framed for truth, and* irresistibly led to conclude that universal Pvrronism, which knows neither truth nor falsehood, and affects to see nothing but uncertainty, is extravagant nonsense. Yes, we feel by our very nature, that we are attracted towards truth, as the centre of our desires and affections ; that she is the very life of the mind, and that falsehood can never please or move us, only when it assumes her facinating character and charms. It is as natural for the mind to thirst after Truth, as for the heart to relish happiness. It is as'impossible lor us to wean ourselves from the love of Truth as from the love of self. Intellect, which belongs to our nature, is given us that we may see, know and distinguish objects; that we may discriminate between what is and what is not, between truth and error. It is this, and this...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 5 September 1829

On presenting the first number of “ the j Jesuit,” it may be proper to apprize our readers, generally, that this religions publication will differ materially, as well in the selection, as in the arrangement of its matter, from those religious Papers now in circulation. In none of them are the columns exclusively devoted to religious information. Ihere is, besides, little or no connection in the pieces, however excellent, which are inserted in them—every Paper seems a distinct thing, which has no dependence, except in a few instances, on the one that preceded it. Whereas in the “ Jesuit,” all the Numbers will be found strongly linked—there will exist a close intimacy throughout—a chain of reasoning, in its prominent parts, which will extend from the first to the last of them. Therefore, if the reader will but take the pains to preserve, and to keep a regular file of these Numbers, he will be rewarded by having the satisfaction to find in them, at the end of the year, a complete demon...

THE TRUE CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 5 September 1829

THE TRUE CHURCH. The questions, which beyond all others, awake the attention, and excite the feelings of society, are those which relate to the interests, and institutions of religion. Religion is, every where, considered, as alike imporI taut to the Christian, to the citizen, and to the man. It is, in reality, not only the great principle of virtue, and the preventive of vice; not only the source of grace, and the foundation of our future expectations; but it is, moreover, the strongest bond of social harmony; the surest support of national prosperity; and the best basis of personal and domestic happiness. It is upon these accounts, that, looking into the annals of the Christian Church, we remark, how great has been, in every age, the multitude of individuals, who, animated by the spirit of charity, have devoted all the energies of their industry, and all the exertions of their talents, to propagate the knowledge, in order to diffuse the benefits, of this sacred institution ; —gene...

OF COMMON CONTROVERSIES. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 5 September 1829

OF COMMON CONTROVERSIES. Among the common controversies of the day, there is a principal, —a leading one, upon which all others depend,—it is that of the Church. For, if it he true, and that it is true, Ave shall, Avith God’s help, clearly sheAv, —if it be true, that our Church, Avhich is called the Catholic, Roman and Pontifical Church, is indeed the true Church of Christ, which cannot err, in matters of faith, our adversaries are at once completely overcome.— Which Ave proA r e thus : —Whoever in matters of faith and religion, follows the true Church of Christ, cannot err in faith and religion : Noav, Catholics Avho maintain Purgatory, the Invocation of Saints, the sacrifice of the Mass, and such like tenets, folloAV the true Church of Christ: Therefore, they cannot err in faith and religion. They are consequently secure. On the other hand, our adversaries, aa t lio have left the true Church of Christ, are doubtless in error, and cannot be secure. This mode of reasoning Avas often...

SINGULAR PREDICTION. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 5 September 1829

SINGULAR PREDICTION. A singular prediction of one of the most celebrated Preachers of modern times. Father Beauregard, an ancient Jesuit, ami one of the last orators who adorned the pulpit, in the 18th century, was celebrated in France for the success of his preaching, and the sanctity of his life. An impetuous eloquence, a toiie truly apostolic, an original mode of delivery, but entirely conformable to the nature ot his sermons; every thing in him attracted attention, while the conviction of his virtues commanded respect, He thought not of seeking public applause, and was only ambitious of that solid recompense, the consciousness of the good that he did, and he did much ; he never preached against bad books, without having the satisfaction of soon seeing some of his auditors bring to him all such as they possessed, desiring him to burn them. He preached at Court during a whole Lent, and made a great sensation, by the bold and evangelical freedom with which he announced, like anothe...

TRULY CURIOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 5 September 1829

TRULY CURIOUS. The following very curious note (prophetical of the revolution in France, its progress and resu fs) was found among the papers of La Harpe, a French writer of much celebrity, who died in the year 1803, after having, in the most solemn manner, renounced the errors of a false philosophy, and no! ly a'owed his entire acquies- ance in the sublime truths of Christianity, of which he became one of the most enlightened defenders: It appears to me as if it were but yesterday, and it was nevertheless in the beginning of the year 1788: we were at the table of a brother academician, who was of the highest rank, and a man of talents. The company was numerous, and of all kinds; courtiers, advocates, literary men, academicians, &c. We had been, as usual, luxuriously entertained: and at the desert, the wines of Maivoisie and the Cape added to the natural I gaiety of good company that kind of social freedom which sometimes stretches beyond the rigid decorum of it.

PIOUS REFLECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 5 September 1829

PIOUS REFLECTIONS. FIRST DAY. Of the Scarceness of True Faith “When the Son of Man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?” Luke xviii, 8. If he should now come, would he find it in us? What fruits of faith have we to shew? Do we look upon tliis life only as a short passage to to a better? Do we believe that we must suffer with Jesus Christ, before we can reign with him? Do we consider this world as a deceitful appearance, and death as the entrance to true happiness? Do we live by faith? Does it animate us? Do we relish the eternal truths it presents us with? Are we as careful to nourish our souls with those truths as to maintain our bodies with proper diet? Do we accustom ourselves to see all things in the light of faith? Do we correct all our judgments by it? Alas! the greater part of Christians think and act like mere heathensIf we judge (as we justly may) of their faith by their practice, we must conclude they have no faith at all. 11. Let us fear, lest the kingdom of God shou...

DIALOGUE BETWEEN MATILDA AND MAURA. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 5 September 1829

DIALOGUE BETWEEN MATILDA AND MAURA. On the latter's intention of embracing a Religious State. MATILDA. STAY, my friend, yonr rash endeavour; Think, ere yet it is too late : Ere religion shall for ever. Shut on you her dismal gate. Wealth and honour still attend you. Plenty, gaiety, and ease : See the smiling world befriend you. See how all conspire to please. Framed to live, and relish pleasures, Just now open’d to your bloom: Can you hide your various treasures In a mournful cloister’s gloom! MAURA. Cease my friend, the tempting strain. Might the proffer’d world be mine; Proffer’d world might bribe in vain To remove my fix’d design. What is all the bliss you shew? Wretchedness in fair disguise ; Ah ! my friend, too well I know, Pain beneath the allurement lies. Cloy’d with worldly happiness. Tasting each with boundless range. Let me seek for other bliss. More solid and less apt to change. MATILDA. Can you, then, dull silence keep. With long office waste the day? Can you break your ...

ON TRUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 12 September 1829

ON TRUTH. [SCt”CONTINUED FROM NO. I.—PAGE 4..g2§ Aristotle, Bacon, Descartes, Paschal, Mallebranche, Locke, and Leibnitz, could well define the rules of reasoning, refer mankind j to experience, and excite a methodical doubt j to induce them to account for every thing to themselves; to travel up to the fountain-head of their ideas, and dispute about the manner i in which we see things. They could, by their methods, classifications, and figurative systems of human knowledge, aid and guide us ; in our inquiries after truth; but its principles existed without them, and before them. By reason we endeavour to find out whether j there are any fixed principles, and what they are ; but in order to reason, the means are requisite, and to seek for them supposes their existence. We must remark that in all systems we are obliged to set out from a fixed | principle, from an indisputable fact; from i ideas and reasonings we must arrive at a fundamental truth, which we feel and perceive, rather th...

MISSIONS OR PARAGUAY. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 12 September 1829

MISSIONS OR PARAGUAY. CONVERSION OF THE SAVAGES.* While Christianity prospered among the worshippers of Fo-hi, while other missionaries proclaimed it to the noble Japanese, or carried it to the courts of sultans, it was seen gliding, as it were, into the nests of the forests of Paraguay, to tame those Indian nations, who lived like birds on the branches of trees. What an extraordinary religion must that be which unites, when it pleases, all the political to all the moral energies, and by a superabundance of means creates governments as excellent as those of Minos and Lycurgus ! Europe had still none but barbarous constitutions, formed by time and chance, and the Christian religion revived in the New World all the wonders of the ancient systems of legislation. The wandering tribes of the savages of Paraguay became lixed, and at the word of God an evangelical republic sprung up in the wildest of deserts. * For this and the following chapter, see Lettres edifiantes, vols. 8 and 9 ; the...

ORDINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 12 September 1829

ORDINATION. On Sunday last, in the Cathedral Church »f the Holy Cross of this City, the Holy Order of Priesthood was conferred on Rev. Thomas I. O’Flaherty, by the Right Rev. Benedict I. Fenwick. The Ceremony was truly impressive. Every eye in the Church was directed towards the Candidate, in whose countenance were seated the expressions of pious gratitude and love, >vhile his eyes were suffused with tears excited by the dread of the awful responsibility which he was about to take upon himself; the prostrate position of the Candidate, at the foot of the Altar, as prescribed by the Catholic Church, and the peculiar impressiveness of the Ceremonies, were well calculated to awaken Religion, and excite the most profound devotion in the heart of every beholder. The newly ordained Gentleman was by Profession a Physician and Surgeon. He is the Author of the much admired Essay on Intemperance, which lie composed in Latin, and which obtained the highest Premium in the Philadelphia...

THE TRUE CHURCH, or THE HOLY SCRIPTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 12 September 1829

THE TRUE CHURCH, or THE HOLY SCRIPTURE. CONTINUED FROM NO. I.—PAGE 2d Question. —Which is the approved version of the Scripture ? 1. We Catholics use the Ancient and J ulgate Version, which for many ages has been used in the Church, and preferred by the common consent of Christians. Phis same Version our adversaries reject, and in its place substitute not one, or two, but a multitude of Versions. For, there is Luther’s Version, Oecolampadius’ Version, Theodore Bibliander’s Version, Castalio’s Version, Junius and Tremelius’ Version, Munster’s Version, Beza’s Version, and numerous other Versions ; all which differ materially in their several readings, and are deservedly censured by our adversaries themselves. 2. For, thus Luther writes in his Commentary on the last words of David, in the Preface : “ It were far better ”, says he, “ to retain that common, and hitherto received Version of the Bible," (alluding to the Vulgate,) “ than to produce such a mxdtiplicity of new Versions, which...

DEATH OF VOLTAIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 12 September 1829

DEATH OF VOLTAIRE. Voltaire arrives in Paris, he receives the homage of the sect, and his arrival constitutes their triumphal day. This man, bending under the weight of years, spent in an unrelenting warfare, whether public or private, against Christianity, is received in the capital of his most Christian Majesty, midst those acclamations which were wont to announce the arrival of the favourite child of victory returning from the arduous toils of war. Whithersoever Voltaire bent his steps, a crowd of adepts, and the gazing multitude, flocked to meet him. Ail the Academies cel- ebrate his arrival; the theatres decreed their crowns to the impious chief; entertainments in his honour, rapidly succeed each other.— Intoxicated with the incense of the adepts, through pride he fears to sink under it. In the midst of these coronations and acclamations, he exclaimed, you then wish to make me expire with glory /....Religion alone mourned at this sight, and vengeance hung over his head. The imp...

PIOUS REFLECTION’S. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 12 September 1829

PIOUS REFLECTION’S. SECOND DAY. Of the only Way to Heaven. I. “ Strive to enter in at the strait gate.” Matt. vii. 13. The kingdom of heaven is not to be entered but by violence : it must be taken, as it were, by assault, like a besieged place. The gate is strait and narrow ; we must bow', avc must bend, we must make ourselves little, to gain admittance. The great gate, which opens Avide, and is passed by multitudes, leads to perdition. All broad and smooth Avays are dangerous. Wo to us, when the Avorld favours us, and our life seems void of trouble. Crosses and difficulties are the surest marks of the Avay to heaven. Let us be aAvare, therefore, of going on Avith the multitude, and let us seek the traces of the feAv; let us folloAV the footsteps of the saints along the craggy paths of repentance; climbing over the rocks, seeking secure places in the sweat of our face, and expecting that the last step of our lives should still be a violent struggle to enter the narrow gate of eterni...

POETRY. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 12 September 1829

POETRY. On the Consolations of a Religious Life. Blest is the life that sacred virgins lead, Bliss flows on bliss, and joy to joy succeed. Within their breast intrudes no earth-born care. For Heav’n defends its habitation there. Kach thought obedient, and each wish resign’d, No tie too dear enchains the heaven-born mind. To penitence tho’ tears and sighs are giv’n, “ Tears that delight, and sighs that waft to Heav’n,” The calm of virtue fears no ruffling blast. Her ceaseless day of joy no clouds o’ercast. What tho’ no flatt’ring crowds delight impart Love in each look, but envy in each heart 1 What tho’ for them no palaces arise. Nor breathing brass arrest the wond’ring eyes ? No soften’d colours mingle into life, Nor landscapes rise in soft harmonious strife 1 No Persian worms their silken treasures weave, Nor blazing gems their darksome caverns leave ? No rifled sweets in rich perfume combine. Nor swells the blushing grape with floods of wine % Yet joy is theirs; content and calm ...
