ON THE SPIRITUALITY OF THE SOUL. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 9 January 1830
ON THE SPIRITUALITY OF THE SOUL. [continued from no. 18. PAGE 138.] Whatever internal, or secret principle Matter contains, does not prevent it from being matter still, so far as extensibility, form and divisibility are concerned, which are qualities incompatible with Intelligence. Say not, that the Omnipotence of God might, for what we know, impart the faculty of thought to Material Substance. To assert that Omnipotence could act in such a manner as to be guilty of Contradiction, is not to fix limits to His power. It would be an insult to infinite Wisdom to suppose it capable of forming the design of attempting such an absurdity. Thus, the Almighty could not make a circular square, nor a square circle. Thought and extension are as opposite in their kind, as are sound and colour. It is impossible to colour the sound of an organ, or trumpet; it is equally impossible to make sonorous the perfume of a rose. In like manner, material and immaterial, extensible and inextensible properties...
ON THE RULE OF FAITH. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 9 January 1830
ON THE RULE OF FAITH. JL Winter Evening Dialogue between John Hardman and John Cardwell, or Thoughts ox the Rule of Faith, in a Series of Letters, Bic. &amp;c. Sic.— Continued from No. 18. —Page 142. LETTER VI. Mr. Hardman’s subsequent Reflections and Researches, which lead to a happy Result. Kirkham, May 24, 1817 Gentlemen, Discussion is a useful practice, where the discovery of truth is important; and it is a most salutary expedient, where ignorance or prejudice intercepts the knowledge of religious truth. For this reason, I thank you, Gentlemen, for your pamphlet. I am grateful to you, not for what your book has done, but for what it has caused to be done. I no longer, indeed, consider it as that sound and unanswerable refutation of Popery, which my ignorance first took it to be. I am now sensible that it has neither reformed my prejudices, nor increased the sphere of my knowledge. But though it has not been the efficient cause of either, I am happy to assure you that it ...
Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 9 January 1830
A Pamphlet has just been thrown in our way, by some unknown hand, containing a Discourse, which, we are informed in the title page, was delivered in the Meeting House of the first Baptist Church and Society, in Union street, in this city, on the day of public thanksgiving, (November 26, 1829) by Cyrus Pitt Grosvenor, Pastor, and which, it is there said, was published by request. In noticing this discourse of the Rev. Pastor of the Union Street Church and Society, we wish not to have it understood by our readers, that our intention is to refute any of the gross calumnies rehearsed by him against Catholics; —our time would be only lost. These have been sufficiently refuted. Two hundred years ago, they would have been beI lieved, and might have served his purpose; j but now they can do us no harm, as they are believed by few or none; —and we should not risk much in asserting, not even by the Rev. Preacher himself. Neither is it our intention j to commend the beauty of its style, the ha...
THE TRUE CHURCH. THE JUDGE OF CONTROVERSIES. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 9 January 1830
THE TRUE CHURCH. THE JUDGE OF CONTROVERSIES. [continued from no. 18 PAGE 143.] Fourth Popular Objection. 72. There are many of the family of simpletons, who make the following objection. The Judge of Controversies, in matters ol faith, should be infallible; because were he to err, they would also err, who should abide by his sentence. Now it is evident, on the one side, that the Scripture is infallible, since it is the word of God, who cannot err. and on the other side, that men are not infallible, but are liars, and liable to error, according to that of Rom. 3. 4. God is true, but every man is a liar. Therefore the Scripture can be an infallible Judge; but men cannot, since they are liars. But the Pope is a man, and the Church is nothing more than a collection ot men: Therefore the Pope and the Church are liars, and can err!! Consequently no man is secure in matters of faith who follows their opinion!!! 73. This objection, if it had any weight, would have no less force against our ...
Extract of a letter, received from a Reverend and Worthy Correspondent. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 9 January 1830
Extract of a letter, received from a Reverend and Worthy Correspondent. Cincinnati, Ohio, Dec. 20, 1829. We learn from Mr. Reze, who arrived from France two days ago, that the Right Rev. Dr. Necker is appointed Bishop of New Orleans. He will be well received by all the ! Clergy. Such piety, talent and modesty as i he possesses, are seldom found united in one ! individual. Right Rev. Dr. Fortier, Bishop of Mobile, has arrived at New Orleans in the ship Antioch, with nine Ecclesiastics , the tenth gentleman who accompanied him, is destined for the Diocess of St. Louis. The ! sisters of Charity, who have been here only two months, have already sixty-five children under their charge. You have probably received a letter from the Right Rev. Bishop Rosati, who wrote to you from Kingston, Upper Canada, in order to introduce to your notice the Rev. ]\lr. McDonald who is curate of that city and V icar General of the Diocess. I hope that the publication of the W T orks of this most worthy prie...
A CARD. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 9 January 1830
A CARD. The Editors of the Jesuit and Catholic Sentinel return thanks to the Roman Catholics of New York, for the characteristic liberality which they have displayed in coni tributing so promptly and extensively to the ! circulation of their Paper. While such patronage proves that the Inhabitants of that 'j thriving and enterprising City and State are alive to the importance of preserving the Faith which was once delivered to them by their Fathers, by the Saints and the Apostles of the True Church, it affords pleasing encouragement to the Editors, to think that, so far, their labours have not been in vain. They avail themselves of the present opportunity of expressing their thanks to all their subscribers from Quebec to New Orleans, and venj ture to assure them, that their usual efforts I will be continued in illustrating, diffusing and defending the Principles of the One, Holy, ! Catholic and Apostolic Church.

ON THE SPIRITUALITY OF THE SOUL. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 16 January 1830
ON THE SPIRITUALITY OF THE SOUL. [continued from no. 19. PAGE 147.] The Doctors of the Christian Church, undoubtedly, must have been Christians. Such an inference is irresistible. They well knew, and openly professed the vital principles of Christianity; they all believed in the existence of a future state. Now, what difference does it make, whether the soul be corporeal, or not, if it be immortal, and destined to punishment in another life for the commission of crime, or to rewards for its virtuous conduct? It was reserved for the Materialists of the present century to press the venerable St. Augustine into their degrading service!! We have among his Works, one, in particular, which has been got up in the form of a Dialogue; its object is to shew that the soul, although its actions and power bespeak its extent, is not as large as the body which it animates; and has not the divisible quantity of material substances. Hence he gave to that book the title De Quantitate Animce. The Grea...
PROPHECIES. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 16 January 1830
PROPHECIES. Twelve Lectures on the Subject of the Prophecies relating to the Christian Church; being a Portion of the Lectures founded at Lincoln’’s Inn Chapel, of the late Bishop Warburton , by Edward Pearson, D. D. Master of Sidney College, Cambridge, and Christian Advocate to that University. 1811. During the last three centuries, the investigation of certain mysterious prophecies of Daniel, St. Paul, and the Evangelist St. John, has been a favourite and fashionable pursuit among the enemies of the Catholic Church. Neither ought this to be a matter of surprise, if we consider that their imaginary discoveries in this Terra incognita of Theology, while they gratified the curiosity and excited the enthusiasm of their disciples, at the same time supplied their malignity with an abundant source of popular declamation against the Parent Church. In the whole circle of literature, there is not, perhaps, one subject, on which the perverted industry and ingenuity of Protestant divines have...

As we have just concluded the year 1829, it may afford some gratification to our readers, especially those at a distance, to learn the state of the Catholic Religion, as it exists now, in the city of Boston, and its immediate vicinity, as to the number of its Professors. The following table will exhibit a comparative view of the number of persons baptized, married and interred every tenth year, during the last thirty-nine years; from which a ■ fair estimate may be made of the whole numi her of Catholics residing in Boston in each of those years. The following is taken from the Records which are regularly kept in the Cathedral of the Holy Cross; and the amount ot the Catholic population is given agreeably to the usual mode of calculation adopted in such cases.

CHARLESTOWN CATHOLIC SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 16 January 1830
CHARLESTOWN CATHOLIC SCHOOL. An Examination of the Pupils of the Roman Catholic School, of St. Mary’s Church, in Charlestown, was held on last Tuesday week. The order and proficiency of the Scholars, and the zeal, industry, and ability of the Teacher, afforded the Roman Catholic Clergyman, who were present on the occasion, the greatest satisfaction. The discipline of this young but highly promising School, is of the most salutary character. It was most gratifying to witness the peculiar promptness with which three or four children, the eldest being not more than five years, recited their Prayers, answered Questions in the Catechism, and spelled and read off the various lessons pointed out to them. The following are the names of the Pupils, who particularly distinguished themselves. In the first class, which consists of Ten Scholars — Joseph Short, who received the first premium, for good conduct, Geography, English Grammar, Arithmetic, Reading, Writing and Catechism. Francis Tucker,...

THE TRUE CHURCH. CHAPTER VI. OF ANTICHRIST. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 16 January 1830
THE TRUE CHURCH. CHAPTER VI. OF ANTICHRIST. [continued from no. 19 PAGE 152.] 1. Our Adversaries endeavour to persuade the illiterate, that the Pope is Antichrist. It is easy to conjecture, what object they have in view in so doing. Doubtless to justify and excuse their desertion from the Catholic Faith under the pretext of a defection from Antichrist. In this chapter, therefore, we shall first give the sentiments of Catholics in relation to Antichrist. Next, we shall answer the quibbles, to which our Adversaries resort, that they might impose upon the credulity of the people, and affix upon the venerable Father of the Faithful, whom the whole Catholic world, for 1800 years, has acknowledged and respected as the successor of St. Peter, the visible Head of the Church, and Christ’s viceregent on earth, the vile appellation of the man of sin. Then we shall leave our readers to judge how successful they have been in their attempt. 2. The name Antichrist, signifies an enemy, or an advers...
IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 16 January 1830
IRELAND. The following paragraph is a good comment upon the extraordinary charge made in this country by our religious Editors, upon the Roman Catholics for a disposition to continue and to extend ignorance, and barbarize the poor:— PUBLIC EXAMINATION—EDUCATION OF THE POOR. We beg leave to refer our readers to resolutions passed at an examination of the boys of the Mill street school, held on Wednesday last, at which several respectable gentlemen of the parish, in which the school is situated, were present, some of whom acted as examiners on the occasion. It was peculiarly gratifying to behold in that quarter of our city, where the children of the poor are so numerous, and where they stand so much in need of a gratuitous and careful education; it was, we say, peculiarly gratifying to behold so large an assemblage of boys receiving in that establishment an education suited to their wants, and well calculated to serve the interests of society. This school is situated in the poorest pa...
