329 SUBSCRIBERS STILL NEEDED FOR SURVIVAL THE JEFFERSONIAN VOLUME 3 NUMBER 4 DECEMBER, 1950 JEFFERSON, TEXAS St Peter9s Dedicated 1624 Years Ago CONVERT WHO GAVE POPE HOME IN WHICH MARIA MONK GIVEN HIM BY HIS DAD, A BAPTIST PREACHER, LED PRIEST TO FAITH (Editor's note: The author of this, our 24th consecutive con- vert story, is a very unusual con- vert. A son, grandson and broth- er of Baptist preachers and him- self once a Protestant minister, Rev. Father L. Douglas Brown of the St Mary's Catholic Church, Norfolk, Va., was raised on Maria Monk's now discredited books. The effect of such outlandiSi charges" apainst the Catholic Church, however, was to incite in the future Father Brown a very curious interest i n Catholicism. Later entering the ministry of another Protestant Church, he began to make a real investiga- tion of the Catholic religion. This led him to become a Catholic. "X decided to make my submission In order to save my soul," Father Brown says. As his story indi- cate...

DECEMBER, 1950 THE JEFFERSONIAN Page * oi York Shows Link to Rome! TELLS WHY HE LIKES THE CATHOLIC FAITH Chicago — "I like the Roman Catholic Church because It stands so immovably in its allegiance to Jesus Christ as very God." This statement was made here by Itev. Charles B. Mitchell, Chica- go Methodist clergyman. Telling why he likes the Catho- lic Church, the Methodist leader struck a high note of praise for Catholic institutions of charity the Catholic Church's defense of the Bible, its battle against div- orce, etc. The text of Rev. Mitchell's statement follows: "I like the Roman Catholic Church because it stands so im- movably in its allegiance to Jesus Christ as very God. None of its leaders ever question the deity of Jesus. "I also like it because it believes In the religious training of its children, and, at great sacrifice of time and money, does it. "I like it because it stand3 for the purity of the home life and the sanctity of the marriage vows. Thank God for that Chur...

Page 4 THE JEFFERSONIAN DECEMBER, I960 Link to Rome— (Continued from page 3) England before Henry's 6 marri- ages was completely Roman Catbolic. Just how or exactly when the Catholic faith was brought to the city of York is not now known. But in the year 314-one year af- ter the Roman Emperor Constan- tino had joined the Catholic Church, (he became a Homan Catholic, building the first St. Peter's Basilica and giving the l'ope a palace in which he lived for 1,000 years) _ in the year 314 a bishop of York attended the Council of Aries. Because this bishop just didn't get consecrat- ed without some physical contai t with a successor of the Apostles, it Is probable that in the Roman armies which occupied England in the early Christian era there came missionaries with apostolic powers. BISHOPS AT EARLY MEETS Bishops of Ihe city of York were also present with their fellow bishops at the Councils of Nicaea, Sardlca and Ariminum. The de- cisions of these councils at which bishops attended f...

DECEMBER, 1950 THE JEFFERSONIAN P«W S The Catholic Church "Has Something" G. B. SHAW SAID Excess of Faith In Materialistic Doctors Not Good Credulity of moderns In blind- ly following whatever advice is given by those doctors who are the products of a "dogmatically materialist education" far ex- ceeds any credulity of people in the Middle Ages toward priests. This common sense statement found in the writings of the late George Bernard Shaw, British playwright who died recently, in- dicates that the noted author, though an athiest and no believer in the divine origin of the Priest- hood, still said some things worth thinking about. Writing about the fact that for many moderns the power of the doctor has succeeded that of the priest, iMr. Shaw, certainly no friend of the priestly power, ob- served that people were much better off having what he would call an "excess of faith" in priests during the Middle Ages than are moderns who have transferred this "credulity" from priests, who tbe...

f ■ DECEMBER, 1950 THE JEFFER80NIAN Not For Cash— (Continued from page 5) Church must toe! for that nun's attitude is typical of all Catho- lics who stumble up the hill of Calvary after Jesus. Less than fifty years ago an Italian peasant child, Maria Gor- etti, was brutally assaulted and died shortly after she defended her virtue. Surrender would have been so easy, but our holy Church had taught her to fear nothing but sin. Following Our Lord's example, before she died she for- gave the attacker. At her canon- ization recently, Pope Pius XII said: "Why has Maria Gorettl so quickly captured your hearts even to becoming your darling and your favorite? "There Is then in this world, not just a thin rank of settled elect of Heaven and pure air, but a throng, immense multitudes on whom the supernatural perfume of Christian purity exerts an irre- sistible and promising fascina- tion. "Thus this sacred ceremony deve- lops spontaneously into a popular assembly for purity. In the light of eve...
