THE INDIAN ADVOCATE 157 The belief of our nation on this point is emblazoned on the Dome of the National Library at Washington in these words of the Holy Ghost: "The heavens show forth the glory of God, and the firmament declareth the work of His hands." Ps. 18,2. St. Paul says: "The invisible things of Him" His existence, etc. "are clearly seen from the creation of the world, being understood by the things that are made. His eternal power also and divinity, so that they unbelievers are inexcusable" Rom. 1. 20. "Jesus Christ is a universal, continuous, actual fact, act ting these nineteen centuries; written upon the human generations, upon all conntries, in living characters. It is an exceptional life which penetrates the whole world. All pass away; all die around Him. He alone lives and en dures." Summing up the author says: "In the presence of the su perhuman character of Jesus Christ; in the presence of His words, His affirmations, His actions and of His work, which is Christianity, there is for a reasonable and sincere man but one course to adopt: it is to fall at His feet and adore, and exclaim with St. Thomas: 'My Lord and my God.' " Did Christ definitely determine by whom and how the fruits of His passion should be distributed? Did He give authority to everybody in general? or to somebody in particular? Has any man living to-day as much right as any other to say what is or what is not Christ's doctrine? The absurdity of the claim that one creed is as good as an other is plainly shown in this little book. A thousand difficulties should not make one doubt, but they do, and there is the rub. Hence we must meet diffi culties. "Short Answers" is typographically a piece of finish ed workmanship. It is published with the hope and for the purpose of spreading the light, and not as a grewsorae mer cantile venture. Grewsome, indeed, and worse is that busi ness which puts prohibitive prices on Catholic books. The retail price is fifteen cents a copy; wholesale price, $7.50 a hundred. It is published by the International Catholic Truth
