I Teltow Citizens
The following is. in part, (he ser?
mon delivered by Cardinal Oibbnos.
of Baltimore, before the recent Euch?
aristie Congress in a sslon at Lon?
don:
Cardinal Gibbons' sermon was In
part as follows: ?
"I say unto you thai many shall
come from the Bast and tie West, and
shall sit down with Abraham and
Isaaac and Jacob in the kingdom of
wosven- Natt. VIII., IL
"I ?Stenn It a great honor and
prlvlllege that members of the hlcr
srchy of the United States should
?alte with their brethren of the liitt
Ish Isles, and of the Continent of
Kuri-pe in celebrating among you this
Love-Feast of the Burcharist.
"I sni Indebted for the favor con?
ferred on DM to the kind partiality
of your beloved Archbishop, whose
pressing invitation I accepted as u
command. And in appearing before
wot I am endeavoring to pay a debt of
' gratitude to the ArchJiocese of West
miniht'-r?for, when we eel brateJ,
some years ago, the centenary of the
establishment of the American Cath?
olic hierarchy. Cardinal Manning "ax
worthily represened in Iialltnure i?v
one of his venerable colleagues. We
earnestly hop? that the occasion, so
vuggestive of your good will to your
brethren beyond the sens, may con?
tribute to strengthen the bond of fe -
lowshlp between the clergy and people
of England and of the Cnitcd States.
"But there are otlier and higher
reasons than personal friendship to
Justify the partlcipatlou by American
prelates In the ceremruies of today.
Though we are separated from you
by an ininruise ocean, we are united1
with you, thnnk God, in the heritage
of a common faith. We, across the
Atlantic, claim, as well as you, to be
the spiritual children cf Gregory,
Augustine and Patrleh. of Albar and
Venerable Bode, of Anselm and TUom
as of Canterbury, of Peter and Plus:
we have with you. "one Lord, one
faith, one baplhim, one God and Fath?
er of all." Yes, our kinship I? strong?
er and more endearing than thut which
Is created !?>? flesh ami blood. When
I entered your cathedral this morning.
I could ray to you all. In the name of
my countrymen, and In the language
of the Apostle cf the Gentiles: "We
are no more strangers and foreigners,
but we are fellow-citizen* with the
saints, and of the household of God,
built upon the foundation of the
apostles snd prophets Jes-us Christ
himself being the chief corner-atonV
This sentiment Inspires me witii con?
fidence, and makes me feel at home;
for, I am addressing you as brothers
in the faith, and 1 can speak to you
with all the warmth and affection or
the same apostles; "My mouth is op n
to yon." fellow-Catholics of England,
"my heart is enlarged."
The Same Paith.
"Yes, my brethren, the same faith
that Peter preached iy Rome, and
Paul in Athens, the faith that Augus?
tine brought to England, and Patrick
to England, the faith that Remigius
preached in France, and that your own
Boniface taught in German-/, the
same faith thst Columbus carried to
America, this is the fsith that is an?
nounced to yon and to us from Jan?
uary to December: "Jesus Christ yes?
terday and today, and ihe same for?
ever."
"But. we inherit, net only th? tradi?
tions of your Christian faith; we in?
herit, not also the traditions of your
civil ' political freedom. The Great
* Charter of Liberty. which Card?
inal I.angton of Canterbury and the
English Karons secured from King
John, on the plains of Runnymede, Is
the basis cf our constitutional Thir?
ties. We share with you In the fruit
of vour victories.
"We have not only a common her?
itage of civil and political freedom, but
we also speak the same language?
the language of Chaucer and Shake?
speare, of Pope and Dryd"n, of Ten?
nyson and Newman. The steady
growth of the English sneaking
Church, during the last three een
tnrl -s. is truly crstlfylng. and may he
considered j'"nctnenal. "At the
Council of Trent, held in the sixteenth
century, ther-? were present only four
bishops who spoke our ion sue; one
came from England, and three from
Ireland. Scotland was not r present
ed. The American continent had but
recently been discovered, and Aus?
tralasia was a terra Incognita. There
are now upwards of two hundred

lish is the prevailing language. An

America's Mother Church.
I "But there are still stronger and
more enduring ties binding th" Cath?
olic Church of America to the Church
In England.
"Maryland, the mother church c;J
the United States, was founded by
English Catholic.-. Leonard Calvert.
the brother of Lord Baltimore, and
the leader of the English Catholic
colony, desirous of securing liberty or
worship for his co-rehgioutsts, sullexl
with ihem from ("owes. Isle of Wight,
in the *rk and the Uove?fitting mes?
sengers to carry the fcriune.s cf the
pioneer pilgrims. They reached their
destination on the banks of th- i'oto
m.ac. In 1034.
"This colony of British Catholics
was the first to establish on American
soil the blessings of civil and religious
liberty. While the Puritans of New
Engluud persecuted otaer Christians,!
and while the {episcopalians of Vir-|
,uinia persecuted Puritans, Catholic
Maryland gave freedom and hospi?
tality to . iritan.s and Episcopalians
alike. In the wcrds of Bancroft, the
fcuiidatlon of the colony of .Mary.an i .
was peacefully and happily laid. Wit t.
In six months it hud advanced more
than Virginia had done in as many
years* Dut far more memorable was
the character of the Maryland Insti?
tutions. Every other country in th"
world had persecuting laws, but
through the benign adininistr .tlon ol
the government of that province, no
poison professing to believe in Jesu
Christ was permitted to be molested
on account of religion. I nder the
munificence and superintending inliu
ness of IiOrsI Baltimore, a dreary wild?
erness was soon quicken *d with
swarming life and activity cf prosper-!
cou settlements; the Reman Catho-I
iles, who were oppressed by th;? laws!
of England, were sure to find a peace-1
fill asylum In the quiet harbors ol tbe|
Chesapeake; and there, too. Protes?
tants were sheltered fri.m Prote-tant
intolerance. Such were the beautiful '
suipleas*ander which Maryland start-j
ed into being. Its history is the his?
tory if benevolence, gratitude, andI
toleration.
One More Link.
"I will add one mor> link to the
chain cf nalloked associations be-:
tween the Catholic Church In England
Bad America. The first itishep of the!
United States was consecrat d in Eng
land by an English prelate, John Car
roil, the first Archbishop of Haltinu.re,
and the Patriarch of t,.e American]
Church, was consecrated in 17'.?", in i
thj Chapel at Lulworth Castle. IXir-j
art-hire, the elegant seat of Thomas
We'd. When the proprietor of Lul?
worth heard cf the appointment of
l>r. Carroll, be invited him to be his,
guest. May the Ijord shew ni>rry to
thee. Thomas We d, for the hospitality 1
thou didst >xtend to the infant Church!
of America in the person of her first
Bishop. . . .'.
"Clcrious is this day for the Church
of God. which sees new nations crowd?
ing into her bo <>m; glorious for the
Prelote elect, who goes forth to Conquer
these nation*, for Jesus Christ; not by
the effort of human i?->wcr. but in the
