The Divinity of the Christian Religion proved from its wonderful establishment. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 2 October 1830
The Divinity of the Christian Religion proved from its wonderful establishment. To persuade the pagan world to receive a religion which obliges man to adore, as his Saviour and his God, a man executed on the cross! what a proposition to make to a world over-ruled by pride; to a world, in the eyes whereof, punishment has always, and ever will be more disgraceful than crime! in whose eyes the delinquent who escapes the punishment which he merits, almost always preserves the honour, which the innocent, who has suffered unjustly, has irretrievably lost! a world to which a man, executed on the cross, was, at that time, an object of contempt and horror! what must it have thought of a God, who had been condemned to, and had undergone so ignominious a death! It is a just matter of astonishment, how the world could have adored Jupiter, a man stained with the crimes of adultery and incest; but it should be a matter of much greater astonishment, that it should adore Jesus Christ Crucified, ina...
An account of the conversion of tico young ladies in England, from Quakerism to the Catholic Faith. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 2 October 1830
An account of the conversion of tico young ladies in England, from Quakerism to the Catholic Faith. About two years ago, an amiable young person from the Society of Friends, went on a visit to a Catholic lady, who resides in the Midland district. A holyday calling this lady one morning to the holy Sacrifice of the Mass, Miss G asked permission to go with her to the Catholic place of worship. She entered it with a mind in some degree prepared for the devotion of that solemn act of adoration; since the peculiar discipline of that people consists, in striving to imitate the mental prayer and silent contera- Ration of the pious Catholic in his progress towards perfection. Thus disposed, she felt the silence during Mass: and, instead of the barren stillness of her former conventicle, she found a rich refreshment of soul, and a sweet I spirit of piety and of prayer steal into her | mind, and take possession of her heart. She returned with her friend, wondering at what she felt. She begged...
FOREIGN MISSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 2 October 1830
FOREIGN MISSIONS. A Letter from an Officer in the service of the East India Company, to M. V Abbe Dubois, Director of the Seminary of Foreign Missions, at Paris. Calcutta, January 30 th, 1829. Sir: —The English Protestant Missionaries in India, absolutely do nothing. I have seen their principal establishment at Serampore; they have erected a superb palace there, to serve as a college, and two grand and elegant houses to lodge the Professors. They have likewise established an extensive printing house and paper mill; in short, they have commenced as Missionaries, and have finished as printers and paper manufacturers. They have only twenty-five Indian scholars and nine raulattoes. Behold the result of their success as apostles. They have been much more careful of their temporal interests. The first founders of the mission have by no means omitted to appropriate to themselves these fine establishments, and to secure them for their children after them, although they had been erected with...

On Sunday, the 26th inst. the new Catholic Church in Dover, New-Hampshire, was solemnly dedicated by the Rt. Rev. Bishop Fenwick, to Almighty God, under the patronage of St. Aloysios. Notwithstanding the unfavorable state of the weather, (for it rained very hard during the whole morning,) the ceremony of dedication was performed amidst a crowded assembly, many of whom were of the most respectable inhabitants of the town. The Bishop was attended by the Rev. Mr. French during the ceremony, which was followed by a solemn High-Mass. This was celebrated by the same Rev, Gentleman. At the Gospel, the Rt. Rev. Bishop preached to a very attentive and intelligent audience. The Choir was conducted by Mr. Unsworth, who is entitled to much praise for his exertions on this occasion, —and the voices were supported by a number of musical Instruments, such as the Bass-Violin, the Bassoon, the Clarinet and Flute, with considerable effect. In the afternoon, a number of choice hymns and other pieces w...
INTERESTING CORRESPONDENCE, [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 2 October 1830
INTERESTING CORRESPONDENCE, The following correspondence is selected from a collection of a number of pieces on various subjects of religious controversy, which took place between the Rev. John Thayer, Catholic Missionary of Boston, and the Rev. George Leslie, a Protestant Minister, and several other persons in the year 1790. They appeared in the public papers of the day. Many of our readers will recollect that the Rev. Mr. Thayer was formerly a Protestant Minister of Boston, who went on a tour to Europe—being solely influenced, as he himself states, by political motives, and a desire of obtaining information, by becoming acquainted with the different languages, as well as with the manners and customs, the laws and governments of the principal European nations, thereby to render himself more useful to his country. “ But God,” says he, “ in the secret designs of his providence and mercy, had prepared for me advantages infinitely more precious, by thus opening the way to my conversion...

The celebration is expected to occur before long. As you might wish to have a copy of the decree, I transmit it.
DECREE. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 2 October 1830
DECREE. Amongst the Workmen whom the heavenly fether hath uniterruptedly sent to cultivate his vineyard, the blessed Mphonsus Maria de Ligoun labored exceedingly for the instruction of the people by his discourses and his writings. Having in early youth quitted the entanglements of the world, he instituted the congregation, styled “ Of the Holy Redeemer;” subsequently having become a bishop, as an excellent pastor he shone with heroic virtues. Those virtues to which have been superadded miracles after his death; and which appeared to be a divine testimonial in his favor, caused him to be regarded specially at our altars. But subsequently to his beatification, new miracles having occurred through his intercession; the sovereign dispenser of all good hath thus manifested, that the glorions Pontiff ought to be more elevated, and that the name and the honor of Saint should be granted to him. Of those new miracles two have been specially examined with the greatest care, and our holy fath...
INCREASE OF CATHOLICS IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 2 October 1830
INCREASE OF CATHOLICS IN ENGLAND. At the Anniversary of the Baptist Irish Society, Lieut. Gordon stated that the steamboats from Ireland continually bring over crowds of Catholics to England, and wherever a hundred were collected, there a priest was sure to find his way; and the consequence was, that as tie found his own congregation too poor to support him, he set about making - converts as fast as he could; and it j was in this way Catholicism had been gaining J fast on the Protestant church in England. He made a tour through Lancashire last year, and had gained some interesting information on this subject. In Preston, in the year 1821, there were but 3,000 Catholics, but in 1829, they had increased to 11,000; and while he was at Manchester, there were 53 Protestants waiting for the arrival of the Catholic Bishop to confirm them. In the parish of Carrington, in Devonshire, out of a ’ population of 900, there had lately been 200 converts to the Catholic religion; and in Blackburn, ...

FROM THE MONTREAL VINDICATOR. Sir, —By affording the following attack on Catholics, a place in your much esteemed paper, you will highly compliment a number of the Inhabitants of Kingston. Desinant Maledicere , malefacta ne noscant sua. Ter. Prol. ad Andr Let them cease to speak ill of others, lest they hear of their own misdeeds. This unprecedented and unmerited attack against the Civil and Religious Liberty of Catholics, took place at Kingston Mills, on the Rideau Canal, and within six miles of the Town of Kingston, on Tuesday the 31st of August by a Scotch Presbyterian Mechanic, who is superintendent of the Government works of that place, by name R D . This mushroom Gentleman, designated by the appellation of the Scotch Dwarf, on the evening of the above date, collected together the laboring workmen of every donomination in his employment; and from an eminence, addressed them in a long inveterate speech against their adherence to the Spiri- - tual Director of their eternal welfar...

THE TRUE CHURCH. [continued from page 31 NO. 4.] OF THE CONTROVERSIES OF THE ANABAPTISTS. The Anabaptists are divided into various kinds.—l. Some are called Cathari, that is, pure from all sin. These omit the following Words of the Lord’s Prayer.— Forgive us our trespasses. 2. Tacit Anabaptists, becaase, when interrogated concerning their religion, they remain silent, and as it were, struck with astonishment. 3. Enthusiasts , who boast, that they converse with God, and are enlightened with celestial visions. 4. Libertines, who make the liberty of Christian to consist in denying subjection to any political prince, or magistrate. 5. Mennonites, so called, from one Menno a native of Friesland.

The doctrines which are common to all, or peculiar to some of these sects, that come under the general term, Anabaptists, are comprised under the following heads. 1. That there is no such thing as original sin. 2. That infants are incapable of Baptism. ...
POETRY. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 2 October 1830
POETRY. THE INFIDEL. BY J. W, PFEIL, There is no God, the unbeliever cries; By chance alone my spirit here was sent; My powers in present joy I’ll exercise; And scorn the thought of after-punishment. In ev’ry heedless pleasure, every crime, Whate’er he thinks to happiness may tend. He spends, he dissipates his precious time. For death he deems his everlasting end. And is he happy ? Seeks be not in vain For bliss ? Must not his ev’ry appetite Indulg’d, nor aught enjoyment to obtain Too vile be deemed, felicity excite I Behold, beneath that laughing lip so gay, A lurking something far—ah far—from joy! Oh! could’st thou but that bosom open lay. The secret feelings which that heart employ— Then soon would cease the question of surprise! Why flies the youthful cheek the healthful bloom I What dims the sparkle of those fading eyes. And clouds e’en pleasure with a shade of gloom ? When one by one his dearest fiends are gone; When still surviving he remains alone; How sad his state! His pro...

The Divinity of the Christian Religion proved from its wonderful establishment. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 9 October 1830
The Divinity of the Christian Religion proved from its wonderful establishment. [Continued. They were well aware, that in every country where they were to preach the gospel, princes and people would vehemently oppose and rise up against them, from the moment they perceived that the ancient religion was to be attacked. “ I send you (said Jesus Christ) as so many sheep in the midst of wolves; they will drive you out from the synagogues; they will pursue you from town to town. You shall he hated by all men, on account of my name; and whosoever shall put you to death, will believe, that he offers up a sacrifice acceptible to God.” All this was known to the apostles, and even common sense pointed it out.—Hence it would have been prudent,that they should have commenced by announcing the gospel in secret, and that they should not speak of the kingdom of God, but to individuals, and then privately; that they should have postponed their public mission, until after they should have formed a p...

The Committee-Conductors of the New-England Christian Herald, in their paper of the 29th of September, seeem to exult greatly at the blow, which has been given to Popery in France, a blow, they say, from which it will not easily recover, by the declaration made by the Chamber of Deputies, that the Catholic Religion is no longer to be the Religion of the Stale. It is indeed very true that the downfall of the Catholic Religion has often been predicted by its enemies; but, with what truth, time has sufficiently shown. Old John Fox, the lying Martyrologist, published that “after long study and prayer, God had cast suddenly into his mind, by divine inspiration, that the fortytwo months must be referred to the Church’s persecution, from the time of John the Baptist.” This calculation was to bring on the Pope’s destruction about the year sixteen hundred. Brightman was more precise, and foretold the final downfall of the Pope, in the I year fifteen hundred and forty six: others in fifteen h...
The pretended Reformation owes its success to ignorance. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 9 October 1830
The pretended Reformation owes its success to ignorance. A multitude of writers, Protestant as well i as Catholic, have attributed the successes of j the reformers to the ignorance principally, | and to the unsuspecting simplicity of the public. This is the remark of Hume; “ The raj pid progress,” says the historian, “ ofthe Lu- | theran doctrine, and the violence with which j it was embraced, prove sufficiently, that it ! owed not its success to reason and reflection. The books of the reformers, full of veheI mence, declamation, and rude eloquence, were quickly propagated; and the minds of men were prepared for novelty.” Indeed, whoever will give himself the trouble to trace the progress of the Reformation, will, at once, discover, that its successes were every where proportioned to the measure of the public ignorance. This, too, is an observation, which has been made by several learned protestants. “ It is,” says Fuller, “ an observation, founded upon a hundred facts, that the nat...
Eulogiums bestowed by Infidels on the first Reformers. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 9 October 1830
Eulogiums bestowed by Infidels on the first Reformers. Those who are conversant with the works of the modern school of impiety, must have often remarked the eulogiums, which its writers uniformly bestow upon the first reformers,—acknowledging these as their predecessors; and attributing to them the great merit of having, by their principles, laid the foundation of that bright philosophy, and of those splendid theories, which now illumine Europe. They are lavish, too, in their general praises of protestantism,—although they blame, and sometimes laugh at, the timidity of its professors, who have not the consistency and courage, to apply their own leading principles. However, they still own them, as allies, fighting,—but fighting cowardly, under the same banner with themselves— We beheld a striking instance of the kindness and partiality resulting from this alliance, on the occasion of tile French Revolution. For, whilst the dreadful heroes of that storm were busily engaged in destroyi...
THE TRUE CHURCH!. [Newspaper Article] — Jesuit, or, Catholic sentinel (Boston, Mass. : 1829) — 9 October 1830
THE TRUE CHURCH!. [continued from page 40 NO. 5.] ON THE CONTROVERSIES OF THE ANABAPTISTS. CHAPTER 111. OF OATHS. 1. To swear is nothing else than to call ! upon God, who can never sanction a falsehood, as witness to the truth of an assertion, or that we are sincere in what we assert, or promise. Hence oaths are distinguished into two kinds: Jlssertive and promissory. 2. Now the question is, whether it is lawful for a Christian to swear in either case, at all? The Anabaptists answer in the negative, because, say they, Christ prohibited it, when he gave this law, Math. 5. 33. You j have heard that it leas said to them of old, Thou shall not forswear thyself But Isay to you, not to swear at all; neither by Heaven, for it is the throne of God; nor by the earth, for it is his footstool; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city j of the great king; neither shall thou swear by : thy head, because thou canst not make one hair j while or black. But let your speech be yea, yea: no, no: and that ...
