Overview

In the chapter Whither are you going? We read: “IT is certain that, in a very short time, we must go away from this world, and our place will not know us any more. When the hour comes we must leave all that we have, and go forth alone, as far as men are concerned, through the cold river and the Valley of the Shadow of Death. None of those on whom we depend here will be able to help us there; and there no man, but the one Divine Man, can help us; no brother, but the one Divine Brother, can redeem us .” Let us consider the desolation of the sinner: “It is quite true that no words can express the utter desolation of souls that are lost in mortal Sin. For them the sun shines not; and the flowers grow not; and the rain falls not. They listen neither to the voice of creation, nor the whispers of grace: spring and summer, autumn and winter, come and go, but these souls hear not their message. What is far worse, Advent, and Lent, Christmas, Easter, Whitsuntide, pass by unheeded: they are clothed in their darkness, wrapt in their grave-clothes, fettered with chains far stronger than steel. Jerusalem does not know them; the city of the Saints does not acknowledge them; they are outcasts from the great commonwealth of the spiritual Israel; and are without God and without Christ in the world. They can find no rest from the tempest and the troubled sea, no home of refuge, no ark to carry them safely on the stormy waters. They are like birds far away from land, flying, and flying in vain, between the dark stormy sky, and a far darker, far stormier, sea. They are clouds without water, that are carried about by winds, trees of the autumn, unfruitful, twice dead, plucked up by the roots, raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own confusion, wandering stars, to whom is reserved the storm of darkness for ever."” After a consideration of the seven deadly sins we find: “PROTESTANTISM is the dethroning of Jesus, and the denial of the Revelation of God. It is the rising up of the human will against the Divine Will; and it is caused by the pride of man's natural heart rebelling against the humbling doctrines of the Gospel.” He then goes on to demonstrate that the Catholic Church is the Ark of Salvation. Let us sing the praises of Mary with Father Rawes: “WITH great love, great reverence, great devotion, Mary is enshrined in the hearts of the faithful. She has made a home for herself, in the love of her children; and reigns there in her sweet, sinless sovereignty, a Virgin-Mother and Queen. Her Throne is also set up in Heaven, at the right Hand of the King. And whether on earth or in Heaven no throne of any creature is half so glorious as hers. No glory of any creature is like hers, because no love is like hers.” This work is loaded with wonderful information on the Divine and Catholic Faith. Let us conclude with this consideration: “GOD has appointed the Holy See as our safeguard against error. He has set the Vicar of His Son in the Church, to teach us infallibly what to believe and what to do.”
