Excerpt from The Catholic Church and Modern Christianity
In the following pages an attempt is made to place in its true light the present position Of the Catholic Church in reference to the various other religious denominations. This attempt was suggested by the striking fact, that, even in this age of universal toleration, the Christian world is still divided into two hostile camps, between which there seems to be an irreconcilable opposition. On the one side stands arrayed in solitary grandeur the Old historic Church, that has come down to us across the ages unchanged, even as the name which she bears; whilst on the other are gathered the various Churches which have Sprung up in more recent times, and are classed under the generic term Of Protestant ism Churches that are indeed at variance among themselves as regards important points of do'ctrine, yet rally around a common stand ard in their Opposition to Catholic views and practices. This Opposition needs explanation.
