Truth and Consequence

Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary

“Religion, with us, is not simply a matter of sentiment, to be carried out by each individual according to his own private taste or preference. It is in our view and belief, a system of truths and consequent practical duties coming to us as a revelation from God, through Christ and His Apostles, and committed to an organization founded by Divine authority, and known to us as the Church. We do not regard the Church as simply a society like others in general, based on mutual consent and for mutual convenience.

“No; we look upon it as a Divine association, unto which Almighty God requires that all should enter…”

- By George M. Searle, C.S.P., in the July edition of The Catholic World
