Excerpt from The Commandments and Sacraments: Explained in Fifty-Two Discourses
They sin likewise against this commandment, who are ignorant of the creed, and do not believe, at least the substance of every article: who are ignorant of the seven sacraments, and what be longs to them, at least those of penance and the eucharist: who are wilfully ignorant of such points of faith as are solemn in the church, and are the continual practice of the faithful: as what Mass is, and the obligation we have to hear it upon Sundays and holydays, if not lawfully hindered; that there is a purgatory, or third place, and that the souls therein detained are assisted by the prayers of the faithful; and, above all, by the adorable se crifice of the Mass; that it is lawful to desire the prayers and intercession of the saints, and that their relics and images are to be reverenced.
