! /. &,*V / LETTER TO NON-CATHOLICS — PAGE 5 THE JEFFERSONIAN VOLUME 3 NUMBER 6 FEBRUARY, 1951 JEFFERSON, TEXAS Why Is The Church Called Catholic? Promises Bind In U. S. Court New York — The pre-nuptial agreement concerning the Cath- olic upbringing of children which the Catholic Church requires in mixed marriages is binding in the law of the land. This infor- mation is revealed in the decision here in 1935 of the New_ York Supreme Court, ruling that a Jewish father was bound by the promise he imad^ his Catholic wife to rear their children In the Catholic faith. In 1949 in Cleveland another court granted a non-Catholic father custody of his children on condition that they be reared in the Catholic faith. The decision was based oa an 1899 ruling up- holding the validity of the sol- emn agreement entered into be- fore marriage by Protestants who marry Catholics. Decreed the judge: "These contracts (made in writing) are valid. They must be lived up to. It is the duty of the cdurts ...

FEBRUARY, 1951 THE JEFFERSONIAN Page 3 Ireland Is Land Of Tremendous Faith! Ark. Senators Warned Against Vatican, Spain Little Hock, Ark.—Arkansas's delegation in the U. S. Congress has recently been given a solemn warning that the "Catholic hier- archy under the direction of the l'ope of Home, a foreigner and head of a religious state, is be- coming bolder and 'bolder every day." A plea to the stated legisla- tors to "halt the inroads of this foreign power which is "trying to capture the wealth and pres- tige of the United States" has been made in an open letter by B. H. Duncan, editor of the Of- ficial organ of the Baptist Church in Arkansas. The hierarchy's current efforts to capture the United States, as seen by Duncan, are aimed at (1) sending money to Spain and (2) sending a U. S. envoy to the Vatican. The lean to Spain, Duncan told ids state's representatives, pass- ed Congress as the "result of Catholic pressure" and "high- jacking methods." Spain, even though recognized by ...

In the his- tory books all of our non-Catholic churches have dates when they first made their visible appeur ance among men, started to build churches, etc. In every case that date is separated by at least 1485 years from the death of Jesus Christ.

When I began to get serious about Mike, I decided that 1 should learn and understand the ways of his church. On my own 1 went to see Father Daly, pastor then of St. Edward's Church in Dallas. I remember when I first met him I was so surprised. He Soon I was attending Father's weekly instruction class not with any intention of becoming a Catholic but strictly to under- stand Mike's religion. It was a surprise to Mike when he found out I was going to instructions. This I did entirely on my own. In fact if he had suggested it, I wouldn't have gone. DECIDED NEAR THE END I attended the classes some time before the idea really enter- ed my mind that I too would be a Catholic: I didn't really decide until near the end of the instruc- tions. As I learned more and more about the Catholic Church, my attitude toward it changed. I be- gan to see it as a beautiful thing and ...

This priest got 7,000,000 people in the world to sign a pledge to give up whiskey for life—among these'many who never abused it. What wonderful example chose who practice total abstinence give to the sinners who abuse drink! It is more powerful than a thousand prohibition laws. EVIL IS IN THE MAN The Irish people in their atti- tude toward drink feel that since Our Blessed Lord drank wine, in moderation, a beverage with alcohol, that the evil in drinking cannot be i.n the drink but in the man who does not know how to use it. Toward whiskey then they have the sane attitude that what God has made has its pro- per usei Consequently they be- lieve very strongly in having a wee drop about their homes. What impressed me most about Ireland was the faith of its peo- ple. In all the countries I visited in none did I see the C...

WAS CATHOLIC PRIEST Saint Valentine Day Customs Had Catholic Origin One of tne most, popular of the Church's saints has ever been St. Valentine. This year on his feast — Feb. 14th — millions of Protestant and Jewish as well as Catholic children in the schools throughout the nation had St. Valentine Day parties and sweethearts mailed each other their Valentines. The chil- dren were not the only ones to take part, however, for many an adult got his Valentine into the mall. This observance of t^e feast day of a Roman Catholic saint on the day kept each year by the Catholic Church for perhaps 1500 years indeed had an Inter- esting "origin. One might won- der how a holy priest who shed his blood for Christ back in the yeiar 270 happened to get con- nected with the amorous acti- vities of young sweethearts.

Page 10 THE JEFFERSONIAN MARCH, 1951 Why Is The Church Called Catholic? BISHOP WHO SUCCEEDED APOSTLE PETER AT ANTIOCH WROTE: "WHERE JESUS CHRIST IS, THERE IS THE CATHOLIC CHURCH"! (Editor's note: 1841 years ago the man who succeeded St. Pet- er as Bishop of Antioch coined the word "Catholic" as a name for the Church. The saintly Ig- natius, direct successor df an •Apostle, wrote: "WHERE JES- US CHRIST IS, THERE IS THE CATHOLIC CHURCH." Three hcndred years later the great Stl Augustine, the greatest leader in the early Church, wrote that the Church of Christ was known to all, friend and foe, as the Catho- lic Church. Said the brilliant Au- gustine: "The Church is called Catholic by all her enemies, as well as by her own children. Heretics and schismatics can call the Church by no other name than Catholic, for they would not be understood, unless they us ed the name by which the Church is known to the whole world." The word "Catholic" means uni- versal. Its application to the Church o...
