The Church Jesus Christ founded can be known by its four marks, unity, holiness, catholicity and apostolicity. The Jesuit Fr. Phelan explains how this marks are to be found and which Church possesses these marks as the one true Church. To possess apostolicity the bishop must be able to trace his spiritual power back to the Apostles and show that he has received authority from Jesus Christ through the Pope. This leads us to the second part where the prerogatives of the Pope are considered. He concludes with a quote from Newman: “From the time I became a Catholic I have had no anxiety of heart.” St. Alphonsus writes: “a single bad book will be sufficient to cause the destruction of a monastery.” Pope Pius XII wrote in 1947 at the beatification of Blessed Maria Goretti: “There rises to Our lips the cry of the Saviour: 'Woe to the world because of scandals!' (Matthew 18:7). Woe to those who consciously and deliberately spread corruption-in novels, newspapers, magazines, theaters, films, in a world of immodesty!” We at St. Pius X Press are calling for a crusade of good books. We want to restore 1,000 old Catholic books to the market. We ask for your assistance and prayers. This book is a photographic reprint of the original The original has been inspected and many imperfections in the existing copy have been corrected. At Saint Pius X Press our goal is to remain faithful to the original in both photographic reproductions and in textual reproductions that are reprinted.
