We well know that the Jesuits are
immutable In their doctrine aa In all
their modes of being tint aid sunt out
tio mnl. Hut to give some weight to
tho negation, it will bo found necessary
to show that the conduct of the Jesuits,
nothing is had in common with tho pre
cepts contained in the book of the
Monlta Secreta (Secret Monitor); well,
then, it Is most evident that the con
trary exists in truth, and that their
works are in perfect conformity with
It is a great thing to be noted, that
the Influence of this Boolety has boon
extended over the secular clergy; wo
have seen its methods developed among
them at the same time as its spirit.
The proofs a?e so very numerous and
public that we have 'he right to insist
upon this point, and the reader who de
sires to be convinced can reeur to the
collection of the periodicals of these
last time'. It la sufficient to read the
''Secret Instructions" to understand the
Jesuit spirit that dictated thero. Let
us give a glance among the chapters:
"System that must be employ d with
widows and the maimer to dispose of
their properties " "Methods by which
the soi;s of rich widows are to be made
to embrace the religious state or that
of devotion." "The method by which
we must cl arge the confessors and
preachers to the great of the earth."
"Mode of making profession or despis
ing of riches." Head them all. omitt
ing nothing, and say afterward if these
precepts are a dead letter. Having
ceased to care fur the widow, to capture
the inheritances, to rob the children
from their families, of lutriguing near
the grtat, of Influencing in the polities
of the natk-ns, of working to the last
with but one object, that is not the
triumph of religion, but the engraodise
ment of the "Company of Jesus,' and
the establishment of its domain in the
Well, then, if the conduct of the
Jesuits is the faithful execution of the
"Secret Instructions" it is the whole
Indispensable point of admitting the
reality of this book. For why, or are,
the Jesuits those which are modeled
upon it, or has the book been copied on
them? Ia both cases, we cannot say
that it is an invention or a calumny.
That which is incontestable Is, that the
'"Secret Instructions" have been printed
for the first time in Paris in IGiil; and
that of those there are existing manu
script copies of anterior date.
We read in the edition of 1821, which
we have before our sight, "In the re
ligious wars of which Germany was the
theatre, many Jesuit colleges were as
saulted and robbed by the reformers.
We encounter in their archives exem
plary manuscript3 of the "Secret
Monitor," and we also find at one time
in Paris two editions, one under the
rubric of Praga and the other under
that of Padua. This last is printed on
parchment and in accordance with the
'Constitutions of the Company of Jesus.'
The tree editions, although made from
different manuscripts, are perfect in
conforming with each other."
Id all the epochs in which the Jesuits
have, menaced tho state, a zealous band
has always thrust anew this book which
hai always been preserved from those
that would destroy it, safely passed th
trial, though the "Company" have ev
sought to purchase it In secret, ai
cause all evidences of It to disapiiear
entirely from view. The present edition
ol the "Secret Monitor" has been col
kcted from the manuscript of Pathe
Urothlerand from the French edition
of 1718, 119, 1M2I and l4.1-thla last
made in Blols by Mr. Ducoux, after
wards memlter of the Constituent As
sembly and Perfect of Police in 1818,
which has served us in tho edition of
last June. In this U Included an ex
col lent notice, but it has been made to
disappear as has the most of all othe
books against the Jesuits.
We have given in the following
brief sketch of the order. Hero wo see
that the Jesuits have leon successively
expelled from all parts, but that also
they havo returned to all parts, and
entered furtively without being dli
turbed; in Frauce, solemnly condemned
for their acts and doctrines. Not for
this has it been loft open with less
audacity in tho lap of tho country from
which they havo been thrice expelled
i no ministers oi state pass away, gov.
ernments tall, revolutions tear up the
countries, tho laws are renewed, the
Jesuits are always permanent and
weigh down tho whole. They, only
never change. This immutability.
which is tho sign of its strength, is also
that of its condemnation. Fur that the
movement is the law of Its existence
all who live are subject to change
this same is the essence of progress.
The formidable "Company of Jesus" is
asocloty of dead men! perimU ac cadnrrr
Is also a work of death that Is realized
Founded in an jioch In which Europ
ean Boclety was lifted up at last from
the long and bloody night of the Middle
Ages, it Imposed the mission of re poll
lng the current which bore humanity
along to the light and to science. To
tho torch of reason, It opposed the
dogma of passive obedience and to be as
a corpse; to the pure brilliant light of
the conscience, the corruption of doubt
and of casuistry.
The worship of the saints replaces
that of Ged; puerile practices are sub
stituted for those that are moral; re.
llgton has given away to the grossest
superstitions; and, as the human spirit
cannot bo detained in its nad, the
separation ha to be jnade between
faith and the reason; atheism is dis.
geminated everywhere; Jesuitism aims
to kill all religious sentiment; truth,
which should be in its place, is given
Established and directed with the
proposition of universal domination,
this society presents in the means of its
organization such power of invasion
that we cannot think of it without be
ing oppressed by a species of fear,
Wi ll, can it be that tho aim of its first
founders was only to assist in the unity
of its beliefs? Perhaps today many of
its members aro of good faith, and
mounting artifice upon artifice, hypoc
risy upon hypocrisy, with the best of
inteniions imaginable. It is not the
first example presented of hallucina
tion. But not for this is to bo left to be
less prcnicious its action In the world;
it Is all contrary.
It is true the statu'.es of the "Com
pany of Jesus" forbid to its members all
personal ambition; but in this nothing
is lost to the devil. The good fathers
do not labor with less earnestness for
the exaltation and enrichment of the
company, whose power and splendor is
reflected upon each member. The
pride of the body with all the passions
of the spirit of sect replaces the interest
of person. In one word, each one is
left to be one particular entity that is
For them the disinterested individual
absolves the most reprehensible actions
at the time they are inspired with the
pride of perfection, "It is always,"
says the profound wisdom of Pascal,
"that if an angel desired to be con
verted, he would return an Imbecile."
The excessive humility is that which
is more assimilated to arrogance. It
is, then, by this mode that the Jesuits
have come to be believed to be superior
to the most of the members of the
clergy, whatever may be their dignity
or how high they may be found. It is
also by this method that they have im
posed upon themselves the task of
dominating the whole Catholic world.
For themselves, they are nothing,
not having pompous titles, no sumptu
ous ornaments, no croziers, no mitres,
no capes of the prebendiaries, but per
tain to that one order everywhere gov
erning and directing. Of command,
other have the appearaneu; but these
posset the rvallty. la whatever place
of the Catholic world a Jesuit ia Insulted
or reslsud, do matter how Insignificant
he may bi, he is sure to be avenged

I'KKr'ACK OF THK KOI KTII FRENCH
The three editions of this book were
exhausted in so short a tln:n that we
could not carry out 0'ir Intention of ini
(Mirlaut changes; but we now present
nt?w proofs and augment our citations,
answering with them our adversaries.
The events of Switzerland stamping
out the Jesuits as agitators of civil war;
their black robes d puttered with blood
but, as on other occasions, the blood
was but, oisiinguip-neii, nccause it was
confounded with that of tho Protest
ants ami inhabitants of the New World.
And wa dller tho testimony of the
riches of tho Jesuit, of their duplicity
and of their Imd faith. This complete
biMik is today tho condemnation of tho
Jesuits by themselves, being tho tine
answer conceded by us to tho Jesuit
journals which so cowardly attacked us.
A thousand laurels to the Jesuits
Awakening Europe out of its lethargy
and running unitedly to the conquest
of democratic Ideas, for tho reaction of
tyranny always produces liberty.
In 1833, the Jesuits made exclama
tion to tho pope. "It would be an ab
surdity to concede to the people the
liberty of conscience."
The Cardinal Albani having framed
his plan of action that decimated Italy
and dictated this impius oath: "I
sweiir to erect the throne and the altar
upon the bones of the in 'anions liberals,
and to exterminate them one by one,
withtiut being moved by the clamors of
children, old men and women!"
Ia 181.1, we take the events of Helvetia
and note that the Jesuits were the
prime movers of the civil war; the holy
father having counseled them to aban
don Switzerland, but did not satisfy the
exit of tho reverend fathers, and they
persisted In another struggle. Shall it
bo that tho blood shall be jmured upon
their heads, drop by drop! Shall they
not receive tho maledictions of men
and fall beneath the anathema of God!
TUB JESUITS FUOM 1541 UNTIL OUR
In vain we rjuestlon tho step; in vain
we ask ourselves if the odium against
the Jesuits has not been unjust, to see
them constantly hated for three cen
turies, with tho curses of iieoples and
thesontenccs even of popes and of kings.
Who can answer to human Infallibility?
Infamous persecutions cannot pursue
entire peoples. Have not the Hebrews
been a thousand times condemned?
And at the end of eighteen centuries
man has avoided the injury and male
dictions. Where was the season of
justice9 Where that of equality? Who
can assure me that the Jetuits, as Jn
other times the Templars, have not
been victims? The truth is, popes and
sovereigns excluded their doctrines;
but was it not a pope who condemned
Galileo? Was it not another who sen
tenced Bossuet and Fcnelon? Certainly
peisterity annulled! many unjust sent
onces, but In turn maintained and
auctioned all the decisions which
struck down the Jesuits, petitioning
yet against tio Order of the Jesuits the
sentence pronounced against them by
Pope Clement XIV., who was poisoned
We hurriedly trace tho history of
tho Jesuits, descending be ond all com
prehension of our tasks, to the sepul-
hre in which Loyola interred the
deietrines, "i,he bounden duty of mak
ing of man and of intelligence a corpse."
A Spanish ch'eflain, called Ignatius
Loyola, was the founder and lawgiver
of the Jesuits. This man was a fanatic,
insensible, and given an iron and omnip
otent will, created a sect ia the midst
of Catholicism, frightened them with
tho clamorous apostacy of Luther; cov-
ring his haughty ideas with the habit
of the monk and the cape of the mendi
cant, ridiculous in the extreme but ter
rible in his results. Spain having in-
ugurated a tribunal (the inquisition)
with the intent of killing the body,
under the pretext of saving the soul.
Ignatius Loyola assassinated the eoul,
espising the body in this manner, in
the two extremities of the world, in
Spain and the Indies, and accouted the
two societies which destroy the body,
'the inquisitors and stranglers, by
other name thugs, and the Company
of Jesus placed its ter.ts between them
Jesus created the life and the thought;
Ignatius Loyola created death the
dea.h of tho soul and of intelligence, of
love and charity, of all that is grand,
noble and generous. Loyola was the
creator and the one light-giver of the
Society of the Jesuits, an ardent and
passionate man, rancorous and per
severing, oppressive toward his dis
ciples, in his Institutions, poesy and
enthusiasm, in genius and human pas
sions. In the Order of tho Jesuits there
must be only one man tho general
his inferiors being nothing more than
passive Instruments; then Loyola in
the bed of death prescribed blind obed
ience obtdientia sicca. His institutions
which we present from thence, form a
monument, are few and minute; the
attention given by readers that they
must spring from casuists, deceivers
and perverse, and also that they must
betray the timorous and honorable.
This code has only one base mutual
vigilauce and despising of the human
"The Superior," says Michelet, "is
always surrounded by counsellors, pro
fessors, novices and graduates, and his
brethren who can and must bodenounc
er; taking shameful precautions, al
though against other members who
have given tho greatest proof of their
adhesion; prescribing friendship in the
seminaries ana being prohibited to
walk two by two, and it is necessary to
bo alono or three together, but not less
for It U well known that the Jesuits
never establish any intimacy before
third, for the third is a spy; for when
there are throe, which Is indispensable
there cannot be found a traitor."
In the celebrated constitutions it is
prescribed "to have the sight much
lower than that of those to whom they
speak and dissimulate the wrinkles
which form in the nose and the fore
head." Tho Constitutions instruct the
confessors in sophistries, and these
serve them to direct them before the
eyes of the penitent. In the power of
Loyola in converting into a corpse, the
faculty of free will pi rinde eic duhtrer.
"His successors (1) organized the grand
scholastic moral or casuistry, tbat for
mi wuum wo may meet euner a uis-
tingcished individual or a nobody (nm.)
Tiiis art of deceiving with the moral
was the principal consistency of his
institution; the omnipotent attraction
of a confessionary seduced tho multi
tude; tho sermon was severe and in
dulgent in direction, concluding at last
with such foreign merchandise intro
duced among the feeble consciences of
the great of the world aud the political
direction of society.
Tho birth of the "Company of Jesus'
was at an appropriate time, of the
great revolution of Luther, valiantly
fighting the reform of the Sixteenth
century, serving the popo with these
auxiliaries who did not see whom they
were that were as succor sent from
The Jeuits augmented their numbers
very soon at ine side ot the tiaia to
whom they gave power in his day, and
In 1547, BobadilU of Germany was ex
pelled for his seditious doctrines.
Meanwhile the accomplices of Charles
IX. and Catherine de Medicis took
counsel of tho Jesuits and were as
sembled in their den on the bloody
night of St. Bartholomew, August 24th,
1572, when Gaspard de Coltgny was
assassinated with 30,000 other Hugue
nots, and over 70,000 in the provinces
were butchered, being at the time when
Francis Bjrgia was the general of the
order In 150.8 they intended to estab
lish a seminary in Paris, but the uni
versity, great and powerful then, was
opposed to the progress of the Sons of
Loyola, whose chief in Frarce was
Odon Pieenat, a furious ce-lleatrue. to
whom Arnaud gave the aupellation of
' the fanatic prie-it of Cybelo," and the
historian gave the title of "The Tiger."
In 1570 Elizabeth expelled the Jesuits
from England, being at the same time
that they were banished from Portugal
and Amberes in 1578. During the
reign of Henry III., they stirred up a
ebelllon and fain is tied the country by
becoming monopolists, the infallible
method of sharpening the poniards of
Jacob Clement and Chatel. In 1593, the
Jesuit Varade armed the hand of the
assassin Barriere against Henry IV.;
in 1594 Jean Chatel, with the intent of
assassinating Henry IV., had for his
accomplice the Father Guinaud, wno
was hung for tho crime on the 7th of
June, 15!)5. Popo Clement VII. charged
the Jesuits with tne dissentions of the
church; in 1508 they were expelled from
Holland for attempting to assassinate
Maurice of Nassau, as they had by
order of Pope Gregory XIII. assassi
nated William the Silent, Prince of
Orange, on the 10th of July, 1584. An
edict of Henry IV. expelled them from
France, but, dragging along until the
planting of the French monarchy they
were tacitly permitted to enter. The
conqueror of the league, the king who
dreamed of a universal monarchy, the

with the Almighty, the matter, In
my humble opinion, can be easily
solved. Why should I, who attends not
your church, ares nothing for your

whose sole ambition is to revel in
drunkenness, debauchery and vice at
night, and in the morning go to the
foot of the altar, still under the influ
ence of xpirittotfunutnti, and begin the
psalm, "Judica Md Ikim." Is it not
