Only the conviction that such is the will of god could induce a Man to submit to it. Biblical basis could you please quote to me the passages in the Bible which sup port the claims of the Pope to supremacy and infallibility the three main passages Are As follows in St. Matthew Xvi 18, 19, we find Christ saying to St. Peter thou Art Peter and upon this Rock i will build my Church and the Gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And i will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven. And whatsoever thou Shalt bind upon Earth it shall be bound also in heaven and whatsoever thou Shalt Loose upon Earth it shall be loosed also in in St. Luke xxii ill 32, we read and the lord said Simon Simon behold satan hath de sired to have you that lie May sift you As wheat.

Straight speech Sydney would you please Tell me something about the cistercian monks the cistercian monks belong to a religious order founded at cite Aux in France by St. Robert de Thierry in the year 1098. The monks take the usual religious vows of poverty chastity and obedience adding a fourth vow of stability or of Perse Verance until death in the life they have chosen. Their Rule is a very strict one obliging them to continual silence and recollection prayer intellectual and manual work and severe self denial As regards food sleep and bodily Comfort. Whether All the de tails of their Rule which you men Tion Are True or not i do not know. That the order is not established in Australia is not due to the fact that they would not be Welcome Here but is due either to insufficiency of num Bers to spare enough for a new foun Dation or to Lack of financial re sources or to a belief that they might not obtain enough vocations in this under populated country to keep going.
