To endeavour to instruct the ignorant, to promote piety, and to remove unhappy prejudice, are aims laudable in every christian, but are particularly objects of pastoral zeal. The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass has ever been held, by Catholics, the principal homage of the Christian religion, and assiduous assistance thereat as one of the most useful, solid, and sanctifying exercises of devotion. It also is, and for some time has been, one of the chief butts of raillery, sarcasm, and scorn, to those who are apt to blaspleme whatsoever things they know not. The view of the Author, or rather Compiler of the following short Treatise, is to afford an easy means of familiar acquaintance with all the parts of this sacred Liturgy; to show the meaning, propriety, antiquity, and authority of its Vestments and Ceremonies, as also the orthodoxy of the Doctrines on which it is founded. or are connected with it. So that Catholics may be able to demonstrate that the Worship therein paid to Almighty God, is a reasonable service; and that they who have) unfortunately and almost unwittingly, imbibed prejudice against it, may have an opportunity of examining fairly rather than condemn rashly."
Since you are pleased to inquire what are my thoughts about the mutual toleration of Christians in their different professions of religion, I must needs answer you freely that I esteem that toleration to be the chief characteristic mark of the true Church. For whatsoever some people boast of the antiquity of places and names, or of the pomp of their outward worship; others, of the reformation of their discipline; all, of the orthodoxy of their faith - for everyone is orthodox to himself - these things, and all others of this nature, are much rather marks of men striving for power and empire over one another than of the Church of Christ. Let anyone have never so true a claim to all these things, yet if he be destitute of charity, meekness, and good-will in general towards all mankind, even to those that are not Christians, he is certainly yet short of being a true Christian himself. "The kings of the Gentiles exercise leadership over them," said our Saviour to his disciples, "but ye shall not be so."The business of true religion is quite another thing. It is not instituted in order to the erecting of an external pomp, nor to the obtaining of ecclesiastical dominion, nor to the exercising of compulsive force, but to the regulating of men's lives, according to the rules of virtue and piety. Whosoever will list himself under the banner of Christ, must, in the first place and above all things, make war upon his own lusts and vices.
I've been banned more than 5 times, nearly always in less than 2 weeks, and for one reason only - I was picking all the women I wanted from many online platforms. Most of these websites were not for dating, and many of the women I met had boyfriends or husbands, but this didn't stop them from contacting me and go out on a date. In this book, I reveal the secret that allowed me to pick-up dozens of beautiful women from many websites, and that allowed acquaintances to do it faster than me from Facebook and other more popular platforms. The secrets here revealed are so effective that quickly draw the attention of everyone, both jealous men and competitive women. In the end, it's a race against time, while the men try to put you out of the competition in every way they can, and women make you so popular that you start reciving invitations to talk privately online and go on dates with those you haven't had to say whatsoever. This is about a female magnet that works every single time, even though it will eventually make you get banned as well. But, who cares about being banned, once your mobile is full of numbers of hot women and most of them expect to become your girlfriend or at least sleep with you? Don't be fooled about how simple these strategies may seem! Every single pick-up artist that teaches you online dating is either using part of them or all at the same time. Game on!
