No light I waged ngiiliiNt Individual Catholic; nor I the right of Cnlhollo wot'Nhlp quoMllouod. There oxIhIm a wide dlHereuco between Homanbou and CathollclKiii. Homan bun I political to tho cxcIiihIoii of ro llgioti idea, mid being directly an tug onlNtlo to our law and government, make It an ImpoHNlbllity for Catholic to obey her oanimand and teaching and keep Inviolate their oath of alleg iance to government. Now the Ignorant and Illiterate maH0 which form tho body of tho Homan Oathollo church think, and, In fact, believe thl I all right, but tho intelligent and thoughtful Cathollo know It to bo wrong, and Juxt no long a Catholic aro forbidden the right to rimaon and lubiult to being led and impound on by Homo, harder and fiercer will tho battle be waged again! thl barrier erected between roiornn and blind obed ience.
