OF THE TRADITIONS OF THE NEW TESTAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 26 September 1829
OF THE TRADITIONS OF THE NEW TESTAMENT. 7. In relation to these we shall oiler three I remarks, First , In a general manner, that I there are extant some Divine and Apostolical S Traditions, which possess equal authority with that ot the Scripture. Secondly, In a particular manner, that some of these Traditions appertain to Faith, others to Morals and external rites. Thirdly, That besides these, there tire others not indeed Apostolical, hut Ecclesiastical, which, although they have not an equal authority, nevertheless are deservedly to be esteemed and observed by ’ Christians. Each of these we shall explain by as many separate conclusions. 8. First Conclusion —Generally speaking, there are extant certain Apostolical Traditions which are not expressly had in the Scripture ; but, nevertheless have equal authority with the Scripture. Thus the Council of Trent. Sess. 4. And it is also inferred from 2d. Thess. 2. 14. “ Therefore brethren stand fast, and hold the Traditions which you have...
POETRY. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 26 September 1829
POETRY. The Christian'’s Contempt of the World. Farewell world, with all thy pleasures. Why thy toys should I pursue? Yonder —heaven all its treasures Opens to my ravish’d view. See, Ambitions! yonder bubble, In Honour’s guise that seems so fair: See, and loathe thy “toil and trouble,” — Lo! ’ti» vanish’d into air. Miser! let the golden tide, As you unmeasur’d waste expan Behold again—the stream has dried, And sullen scowls the desert sand. And ye, too, unthinking mortals! Pleasure fondly lures your eyes: Lo! she opens wide her portals— Tell me, have you seiz’d the prize ? Then—farewell world, with all thy pleasures, WTjy thy toys should I pursue? Yonder—heaven all ist treasures Opens to my ravish’d view. F. M. D.

THE CAUSES OF OUR ERRORS. *,* CONTINUED FROM NO 4 —PAGE 26. * # * j : i Is not the mind limited in what it does \ know 1 Is it not but too apt to form inaccurate and erroneous, nay, utterly false conceptions about what it pretends to be well informed ?

FENELON’S LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 3 October 1829
FENELON’S LETTER. ss*continued from no. 4 —page SO While so great a number of the faithful read the Scriptures in this manner, many circumstances interfered that prevented them from giving false interpretations. Ist, The Pastors always explained the Sacred Text, in order to inculcate the true meaning of Tradition, and to prevent any person from explaining it according to his private opinion, or differently from that grave and moderate interpretation given to it by the Church. 2d, It was the custom to consult the Pastors even in the smallest difficulties arising from any obscure passage in the text. 3d, M hen there was any suspicion of novelty in the interpretation of the text, the Bishops fre- quently assembled and removed this difficulty. Even the faithful of the West to preserve unanimity, often consulted the Apostolic See, to interpose its authority and prevent dissension. Thus the simplicity of the faith, the docility of the people to the continual instructions of their Pastors ...
LETTER OF MR. LAVAL, FORMER PASTOR OF CONDE-SUR-NOIREAU. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 3 October 1829
LETTER OF MR. LAVAL, FORMER PASTOR OF CONDE-SUR-NOIREAU. CONTINUED FROM NO. 4 —PAGE 29. Alas ! I have but too well experienced it. A consciousness of my own inability to form a belief which could wear any appearance of security, has been the only reward of many long examinations and tiresome researches. When, in order to fulfil the first duty of a Christian, I asked reason to recite an act of faith? it dared not answer me. Every new enquiry met with new uncertainties. What I firmly believed, one day, as the result of scripture authority, I began the next day to doubt of it, because it did not then appear so clear. Sometimes even I thought that I found in it a contrary dogma. Often feeling the want of an immoveable faith, I planned a new form of creed, and declared it irrevocable : this creed hardly lasted a few days, and reason commenced anew to wander from one opinion to another, finding nothing permanent in itself but its own instability. How could I continue in’this state? How co...
Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 3 October 1829
We feel much pleasure in laying before our Readers the following Anecdote relative to the celebrated Friend, the useful, the Patriotic Franklin. The style of the narrative, will be more than counter-balanced by the interesting incidents, and the gratifying reflection that the American Philosopher died, favourably, it not fully convinced of the truth, and converted by the power of Christianity, under the form of Catholicity.
INTERESTING. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 3 October 1829
INTERESTING. I rom the writings of a Gentleman who took great pains to collect Anecdotes relative to Dr. Franklin. “Hearing that the Rev. Dr. Helmuth, a very learned and pious divine, of the Gerinan Church, Philadelphia, possessed a valuable Anecdote of Dr. Franklin , I immediately waited on him. ‘ Yes sir,’ said he, ‘ I havo indeed a valuable anecdote of Dr. Franklin which I would tell you with great pleasure’ hut as I do not speak English very well, 1 wish you would call on David Ritter , at the sign of the Golden Lamb, in Front-street ; he will tell it to you better.’ I hastened to Mr. Ritter, and told him my errand. He seemed mightily pleased at it, and said, ‘ Yes, I will tell you all I know of it. You must understand then, first of all, that I always had a prodigious opinion of Dr. Franklin as the usefulest man we ever had among us, by a long way ; and so hearing that he was sick, 1 thought I would go and see him. As I rapped at the door, who should come and open it, but Old S...
ANECDOTE. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 3 October 1829
ANECDOTE. MONSTROUS AS TRUE. A poor Catholic Girl, named McGeoghegan, residing in Derry, Ireland, frequented the Protestant Bishop’s Free School. It was soon remarked that she possessed a most melodious voice, and she was therefore removed to another school, which was under the immediate eye of the Protestant Bishop’s family. She was invited to Church, but refused. A pair of new shoes was held out as a bait—the poor girl hesitated, and—yielded. She put on the shoes and walked to Church. Like other renegadoes, however, she afterwards, to use the heretical slang of the day, “ relapsed into the errors of Popery,” and tripped merrily to meet her old friends at the Catholic Chapel—when, lo ! a Messenger came from the Protestant Church, siezed her, pulled the Protestant shoes off' her Popish feet, and carried them off, as the forfeit. The fair, but fickle lass now carols to Mass, singing her Catholic Hymns along the path—blythe and bonny, but harefooted. o'Jr’ It is truly painful to every...
COMMUNICATED. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 3 October 1829
COMMUNICATED. An additional proof of the above remarks, the particulars of which we can furnish if requisite. “ The following facts recently occurred at Portland, Maine. Mrs. has been many weeks confined on the bed of sickness; she suffered many privations; because her husband not having constant employment, could scarcely provide the common necessaries of life for a numerous family. Her case being considered very dangerous, she expressed a most anxious wish to see a Catholic Clergyman. He was accordingly sent for, and undertook a long and labourious journey to comply with her wishes. She was always a practical Catholic, and she received in the most edifying manner the Sacraments, which are administered to dying persons. She bore her illness with Christian fortitude, and with most becoming resignation to the divine appointments, placing her hopes in the allsufficient and atoning blood of her beloved and crucified Redeemer; thus prepared, her thoughts constantly fixed on God, and wis...
THE TRUE CHURCH. OF TRADITION. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 3 October 1829
THE TRUE CHURCH. OF TRADITION. THE SENTIMENTS OF OUR ADVERSARIES. gCt-CONTIIfUED FROM NO. 4. —PAGE 32.-£$ 15. The Adversaries of Catholicity invariable reject Tradition, and will admit nothing except what is contained in the Scriptures of the Old and new Testament. In this, however, they err in four ways. Ist, Because they imitate ancient Heretics. 2d, They disagree among themselves. 3d, They falsely and lyingly impute to Catholics, what Catholics disavow and despise. 4th, They foolishly and absurdly argue from certain passages of the Scripture against Tradition. Each of these we shall separately demonstrate. 16. First —Accordingly, as Catholics in admitting Tradition, follow the common and unanimous consent of the ancient Fathers, so their opponents in rejecting this Tradition follow the common opinion of ancient Heretics. For Heretics always appealed to Scripture, rejected and despised Tradition. And particularly these ; —lstly, The Arians, who, when disputing concerning the Divin...
SUNDAY SCHOOLS, COLLEGES, UNIVERSITIES, &c. &c. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 3 October 1829
SUNDAY SCHOOLS, COLLEGES, UNIVERSITIES, &amp;c. &amp;c. "Who was the Founder of Sunday Schools ? A Catholic Nobleman, who was a Bishop and a Saint. Yes, gentle reader, and if ever a human being deserved honour from his fel-low-creatures, it was St. Charles Boromeo. Princely birth and fortune, the highest dignities, learning, talents, and accomplishments, qualities so apt to intoxicate the strongest mind even in the soberness of mature, I might say, in the sullenness of declining age, shone in him even when a youth,* without impairing that humility, simplicity of heart, disinterestedness and holiness, which constituted his real merit and formed his most honourable and permanent distinction. It was his destiny to render to his people those great and splendid services which excite public applause and gratitude, and to perform at the same time those humbler duties which, though perhaps more meritorious, are more obscure, and sometimes produce more obloquy than acknowledg...
RELIGIOUS ANECDOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 3 October 1829
RELIGIOUS ANECDOTES. Though Frederick the Second, King of Prussia, protected the Philosophers, and seemed to take pride in being one himself, he was sensibly affected with the Majesty of our Religious Ceremonies ; and after having assisted one day at High Mass, which was sung in the Cathedral of Breslaw, by the Cardinal of Zinzendorff, he said to a certain Prelate, The Calvinists treat God as a servant, the Lutherans as an equal, but Catholics woship him as God.
