ST. JOHN'S CATHOLIC
Rev. C. J. Kaup, pastor
Sunday masses, 8:30 and 10:30
Confessions Saturday 3:30, 5:30,

DO THEY REALLY?
Mr. X., ever since his child
hood, has had drilled into his
head things against the Cath
olic church. Perhaps he perused
magazine articles and books
which gave “facts” about the
church as seen from the inside
by ex-priests and “escaped” nuns.
Or perhaps he listened to orators
who cared not for the truth, if
they could succeed in promoting
religious hatred and earn their
30 pieces of silver.
If we should ask Mr. X to dis
regard such racketeers and to
search the records of priests and
nuns who have been “exed” from
their orders, Mr. X would prob
ably say he had neither time
nor interest. Perhaps we should
not blame him for that.
But to all the Mr. X.’s we make
this appeal: Take 2 minutes’ time
to think the thing out. If all the
accusations against the church,
from the days of the apostles down
to the present time, were true,
how could the church have lasted
1900 years? How could she have
mounted to a membership today
of over 338,000,000? How can
she draw into her fold more

•than 85,000 people yearly in the
U.S.A. alone — in England about
13,000 each year?
Remember, too, that those who
join the Catholic church do not
do it for worldly advancement.
They do not do it because they
have not heard the propaganda
against her. They do not do it
because the Catholic church fits
a certain type of undeveloped
mind, for the converts include
many of the outstanding men and
women of the world—authors,
scientists, teachers, clergymen,
and the like. No, they do it be
cause they have delved into his
tory and theology from all sides,
and their consciences have per
mitted no other course.
The Mr. X.’s of today, with lit
tle time for investigation, are let
ting their common-sense be their
guide. Many now refuse to he
deceived by professional anti
Catholics. Others are asked for
information on the foolish and
malign accusations which their
common-sense will let them be
