Month, Iteland, Titos. Nulty,
bishop of Mouth, sent to each
priest In his diocese a pastoral
letter from which wo make tho
following quotations;
"The Issue which you are now
considering, and which you will
finally decide by your votes at
the coming election, Is by no
means wholly arid purely polltl-
eal. If 1'arnelllsm were really
uch, I should address you not as
a t.lulmtt tint: lid ii tmlH.W'tfin.
lint 1'arnelllsm, whose
continued existence or practical
extinction you will decide at those
coming elections, is much more than a
purely political question, I ley end all
doubt it Is an essentially and an In
tensely religious question as well, and
one that will vitally Influence your
faith, your religious feelings, and the
moral obllgntlotis and dutlog hy which,
as Christians and Catholics, you are
conscientiously bound, On farnelllsm,
under that point of view, I, as a bishop,
and as a successor of tho Apostles, havo
a Divine right from God to Instruct
you and to teach you, and you aro bound
hy a Divine precept to listen to mo and
to learn tho doctrines and tho religious
principles I teach you,
"Now rarnelllsm strikes at tho very
root and saps tho very foundations of
Cutholle faith. It is even
dangerous to their faith as Catholics,
and, consequently, they should shun
and avoid it.
"They who refuse to accept that
teaching or that principle on the
unanimous authority of the whole Irish
hierarchy, deprive themselves of every
rational ground or motive for believing
"n tho truth of any of tho other doc
tyne of their religion.
'lloeauso It is solely on tho authority
I which they hero despise and decry that
they know, or possibly can know, that
1 any one of those doctrine was over re
vealed at all by (Jod Almighty,
f "if tho bishops can mislead or de
ceive their llocks on this particular
doctrine what Is to prevent their doing
exactly tho same in the case of any of
tho other doctrines which they are con
tinually teaching? Invincible Ignor
ance may undoubtedly excuse many of
the misguided but well-intentioned
, men who still cling to 1'arnelllsm, but
no intelligent or well-informed man
can continue and remain a Catholic as
.long as ho elects tooling to I'arnellism,
