He deems uuadvlsable tbe promiscuous, assembling of Catholics, with men of all foruiB of religion, Buddhists aud Mohammedans, as well as non-Catholic Christians, upon the same platform for the discussion of religious questions. The pope, no doubt, somewhat fears, as many oth ers did and do, that from such prv miscuouB gatherings the Impression* go out Into tbe public mind that all forms of religions are looked upon as of equal value and equal sufficiency. The Catholics who participated in the Chicago parliament of religions were not without their misgivings as to the peril of impressions of this kind. But circumstances did not suggest or al low other arrangements than promis cuous assemblages—and In view of tbe general good expected from their participation in the congress. Catho lics did not keep themselves aloof, sat isfying their consciences that all tbings would be made right by their emphatic and repented declarations that the principles of the Catholic fnlth remained intact and nothing done or said should be taken as plac ing other religions on the same foot ing as the Catholic. But now, when congresses or parliaments of religions are becoming frequent and seem des tined to be permanent institutions, It Is felt that such care ought to lie takeu by Catholics thnt not even the most delicate and scrupulously con scientious among the children of the church be alarmed or thnt the most unthinking non-Catliolic be led to mls appreheud the Catholic position.
