Boston Jesuit (Newspaper) - May 21, 1831, Boston, MassachusettsOf Catholic Sentinel. I a 0t�� a sols ref a if a a is Neis Pronoitis of is Contra nos a in i on in por i a who is against is a rom. Viii. Xxxi. Vol. Ii. Boston saturday May 21, 1881. No. Xxxviii. The Jesuit published weekly to appear every saturday by w 1lliam Smith for the put Nieton of �3 per annul in Advance. All communications not he if paid and directed 10 the editors of the a a Jesuit a Boston mass. The object is to explain diffuse and defend the principles of the one ii old Catholic and apostolic Curch. Office. Bromfield Street. Stricture on tvs lbs pretended roman catechism. Pointing out its numerous misrepresentation. Falte glosses and Gross falsehoods. Addressed to the methodists of Stourbridge and its Vicinity. By the Rev. J. A. Mason Catholic priest of All saints first. Strictures. The first thing which strikes the mind of a Catholic in examining this production of or. Wesley a profound Lucu rations is the Novelty of the title a a a roman catechism a or in other words a catechism for the romans. Thus leaving us to guess at two alternatives Viz. Whether the romans made it for themselves or whether he has made it for them or secondly whether it be designed for the romans alone or for the Catholic Church in general whose Faith the romans hold. As Lor the first alternative the romans never made this catechism they do not hold Many of its doctrines some of which Are false and Calum Nious and no less disgraceful if not to the heart at least to the head of its author. Or. Wesley has made this catechism Lor the romans. He Good Man in the fecundity of his imagination and profusion of his Zeal was not contented with making a religion for methodists but he must make a religion for the romans too. This is often the Case with others besides or. Wesley. All Are fond of making a religion for the romans and then refuting it. Like children they build Aman of Snow and then exert their skill and prowess to try which of them shall first Knock off its head. Such is the catechism fabricated for the romans by or. Wesley and such the employment of this same divine. But who ate these romans who have had the temerity to provoke or the Grace to Merit a catechism at the hands of sir. Wesley Are they the descendants of the famous Romulus the children of those invincible hands of ancient conquerors who now inhabit the roman territory but Why make a catechism for them and Why above All circulate it in Stourbridge ? of the cause is romans Are catholics and there Are catholics in Stourbridge. But does this make the Stourbridge catholics romans As Well might you say the romans Are human beings the inhabitants of a real Britain Art human beings therefore the inhabitants of great Britain Are romans. If our beg of the same religion As the romans makes us romans by the same Rule our being of the same religion As the spaniards makes us spaniards and so and Infin tum. And on the supposition that this catechism gives the True Catholic Faith it might As Well be called a Spanish catechism or the catechism of any other Catholic country for it would contain the Faith of All these nations and of the far greater part of the Christian world As Well As the Faith of Rome. But or. Wesley perhaps would explain himself were he alive and lie would Tell us that the head of our religion lives at Rome and therefore we Are romans. As Well might he say to the Stourbridge protestants your head Bishop lives at Canterbury and your supreme Lead on Earth lives at Windsor therefore you arc All Canter burials or wins orians. What admirable logic a what a Wise Man to write catechisms but a methodist will Tell me you arc called romans and therefore or. Wesley did right to Call you so. Wonderful the methodists Are called jumpers ranters saddlers deceivers therefore All men would do right to Call them so. It is thus that these men throw dust in the Eves of the people to prevent them from seeing the catholicity of the Christian Faith and Church. What i have said of the roman catechism equally applies to the roman Church or Church of Rome. The Church of Rome properly so called is that part of the Catholic Church residing at Rome. But the Catholic Church throughout the world is in no other sense the Church of Rome than As the principal head Centre of Unity and executive authority of the Catholic Church resides at that place. As Yvell might he Call the protestant Church of Stourbridge the Church of Canterbury or Windsor Castle. As to or. Wesley a reply that a Christ is the head of the Church a we know this As Well As he. But the question is not about the invisible head and authority but the visible Economy established by Christ for the government of his Church in her militant state. We might As Well say Christ is the head of his Church therefore there needs no conference. Christ is the invisible minister of his Church therefore there needs no ministers. But this will not suit the methodist preachers. They would not like to be a ministered and if we could strip st. Peters successor of this office and give it to the conference they would become As great sticklers for a Pope As the Catholic Church is. And historians agree that Henry the eighth was a More absolute Pope among protestants in his Day and John Wesley a More absolute Pope among methodists in his than Ever the Pope of Rome pretended to be or Ever attempted to assume. And the conference inherit All the spirit of their father in this regard. But or. Wesley says a a there is no evidence in scripture or Antiquity for a visible we might have asked him How he Durst pretend to be one. However this assertion is false and ignorant. We learn from scripture that Christ gave to st. Peter Powers which he did not give to any other apostle. In the first instance he changed his name or
