Excerpt from A Silver Crown: Twenty-Five Subjects of Interest and Instruction in Defence of the Church; A Plea for Truth, Justice and Fairness; Leading Objections Against Our Faith and the Vagaries of Modern Times Presented and Satisfactorily Answered
Purpose was to make this book profitable to my kind reader, to acquaint him with the sub limity of our holy Church and her many excellent and salutary teachings; likewise with her beautiful and impressive ceremonies. It is a well-known fact that the great majority of the objections against our holy faith and the practice of our holy Church come from a misunderstanding of our holy religion. If our enemies only knew the teachings of our Church, there would be a complete eradica tion of prejudice; we would then have no reason to complain of unkind and bigoted utterances and writings in Opposition of our holy faith. Of late years, however, much opposition has ceased, and the present age is marked by a greater and more extended refinement than' any that has preceded it, since the records of history have been pre served. This is due to the willingness and eagerness of becoming instructed on all the vital points of Catholic dogma and morals; and correspondingly with this refinement, with this softening of manners, has come a softening of prejudices; our principles have become better known. We must, however, not forget that all prejudices have not passedviii Preface.
