    The Church and the Catacombs

    I have always felt that, difficult and fragmentary as are the indications that remain to us in the ruined catacombs which were the burial-places and at times the meeting places of the early Roman Church, those indications ought to throw considerable light, if they could be carefully studied...

    Australia's Forgotten Patroness

    An Embarrassing Request Quite recently an Australian priest received an embarrassing letter from a missionary in India. He had written to the Marianist College, Dayton, U.S.A., the letter stated, requesting information on devotion to Mary, Help of Christians. There the good Marianists had...

    Apparition of the Blessed Virgin on the Mountain of La Salette

    The Appartition Only the witness herself, Melanie, can, along with Maximin, give an account of the apparition. After giving it by word of mouth an incalculable number of times, she decided to write it all down in 1878. It was published at Lecce on the 15th of November 1879 — with the...

    Quizzes to a Street Preacher, Virgin And Statue Worship

  7. Mary, the Ark of the New Covenant

    Mary, the Ark of the New Covenant

    Introduction After only a cursory reading of the Bible, it may appear that Mary, the mother of Our Lord, was nothing more than a humble virgin from Nazareth, who gave birth to Jesus and then faded into the background, practically disappearing from God’s plan of salvation. Why is it then that...
  8. The Communion of Saints

    The Communion of Saints

    Introduction The Catholic belief that the Saints in heaven are aware of what is going on here on earth, that they are eager to assist us with their prayerful intercession, and that we can even ask them for their intercession is a big stumbling block to most Bible-believing Christians. They...
  9. The Church Fathers on Mary, the Mother of God

    The Church Fathers on Mary, the Mother of God

    Fundamentalists are sometimes horrified when the Virgin Mary is referred to as the Mother of God. However, their reaction often rests upon a misapprehension of not only what this particular title of Mary signifies but also who Jesus was, and what their own theological forebears, the Protestant...

  13. The Worship of Saints

    The Worship of Saints

    The first and most important point to be noted in regard to the Catholic dogma of the worship of the Saints is that both dulia, i. e. the worship we render to the Saints in general, and hyper-dulia, i. e. that specific worship which we give to the Blessed Virgin in particular, differ formally...

    The Communion of Saints and Its Consequences

    The term “Communion of Saints” seems to have been first inserted in the baptismal creeds in the South of Gaul; and it is to be understood as the South Gallic writers of the fifth and sixth centuries understood it; giving the word “Saints” the normal meaning which it still holds today: the Elect...
