Big Audience Speaking before an audience which filled the Sacred Heart church, the Rev. John E. Burke, of the Paulist Fathers of New York, last evening, dealt with a numiber of popular mis conceptions of Catholic teaching. 'The Catholic church Is not the enemy of the Bible," Father Burke said. "She does not forbid her chil dren to read It. She has never done so. She knows that It is the inspired vr-rd of God and from the earliest days of Christianity she has done everything humanly possible to pre serve, propogate and popularize it." The speak ear went on to point out that while the Catholic church re garded Che Bible as bavins? been writ ten under the Inspiration of the Most High yet she did not consider it, the only rule of faith. In the face ot the difficulties suggested by his tory, reason and scripture Itself, the church could not nossthky do bo. "The fundamental problem In the field of scripture," Father Burke maintained, "is that of the author ship of the Bible is it inspired? Vital and far-reaching as the ques tion is to any believer. It cannot be settSed by an appeal to Scripture." The Paulist Father went on to. gve the CaiboKc solution to the question, the all-important question, where are the truths proclaimed by Jesus Christ to be found? "If the Master possess ed the mind of modern business man and -He at lesiMt had the mentality of the average man beyond the shadow of a douibt the guardianship of Hie truth would be vested in a Irving or ganization which would teach with authority and would be gnsced with infallibility" the intellect and pas sions of men nfay play fast and loose with principles enunciated between the covers of a book, hut they cannot when the authority promulgating the truth has the power to enforce It truth is not and cannot be a matter of private opinion. The Catholic church m"'n"'" that Christ left this) truth to a Irving society which the last court of appeal In matters! religious." This solution the speaker claimed, will bear scrutiny, will stand investigation and Is proved to tie true by an apnea! to experience, togse. history or scriptures." These lectures are informative ass interesting. The subject of vonigntw sermon Is: "Can i Sine?"
