A Manual of Theology for the Laity : Being a Brief, Clear, and Systematic Exposition of the Reason and Authority of Religion and a Practical Guide Book for All of Good Will (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from A Manual of Theology for the Laity: Being a Brief, Clear, and Systematic Exposition of the Reason and Authority of Religion and a Practical Guide Book for All of Good Will The progress oi the Catholic Church in any country is attributable primarily to the indwelling Spirit which guides the Church, -next to the piety, zeal, and education of its priesthood, and lastly, though in no mean degree, to the devotion, activity, and education of the laity. When these three features combine, then is the Church writing the brightest pages of her history. The first of these conditions is with God. The Spirit breatheth where He will, but the second and third under Godis guidance are of our creation. Generally they go together, so that the saying As are the people so is the priest, is true reversed, As is the priest so are the people.
