“[5.] But here some one perhaps will ask, Since the canon of Scripture is complete, and sufficient of itself for everything, and more than sufficient, what need is there to join with it the authority of the Church’s interpretation? For this reason — because, owing to the depth of Holy Scripture, all do not accept it in one and the same sense, but one understands its words in one way, another in another; so that it seems to be capable of as many interpretations as there are interpreters. For Novatian expounds it one way, Sabellius another, Donatus another, Arius, Eunomius, Macedonius, another, Photinus, Apollinaris, Priscillian, another, Iovinian, Pelagius, Celestius, another, lastly, Nestorius another. Therefore, it is very necessary, on account of so great intricacies of such various error, that the rule for the right understanding of the prophets and apostles should be framed in accordance with the standard of Ecclesiastical and Catholic interpretation.”

“Indifference or rejection of Christian principals comes down to three main institutions by Jesus Christ: 1- the need for a human hierarchy (because there is one in Heaven) 2- the Immaculate Conception (because The Lamb must be an unblemished sacrifice) and 3- the Real Presence in The Eucharist (when God speaks, it immediately and perfectly becomes the Words spoken). All else is trivial by comparison but not unimportant because Truth must be whole and confirmed from every angle. ..”

“I have on my shelf a book edited by Karl Keating, “Controversies: High Level Catholic Apologetics.” I’m reminded of this one passage of the book: It’s from an October 1931 letter from Fr. Ronald Knox (a convert) to non-Catholic Arnold Lunn (who himself would eventually convert):

“It is a matter of temperament, I suppose; but to me there is far more temptation not to believe in God than not to believe in the Church. For, as St. Thomas admitted, you have the whole fact of evil in Creation apparently against you, when you assert that God exists; and it is only because the proofs you have used are ungetawayablefrom (a pity there is no more technical word for this idea) that you resist the contrary suggestion. Whereas the arguments against the Church always seem to me scraped together; they are like the thousand and one holes which a disgruntled man will find to pick in the character of a man or institution he has quarreled with.”

Later on in the same letter, Fr. Knox also writes:

“Oh, we are a convenience to the other Christianities; a lightning conductor to draw the world’s criticism away from them; a repository whose furniture they can reproduce without the wormholes; a standard of theological currency, against which they can balance their rate of exchange. But, in the nature of things, we cannot accept the second-best positions you try to thrust upon us. Our whole witness is stultified if we are not to be the absolute thing we claim to be.”

“I am aware that as a writer and columnist I shall have to monitor the horrific events in Church history unfolding before our eyes, and attempt to make sense of them for my readers and myself. But in, with, and under all the tawdry drivel, I hereby remind myself and you, dear reader, that all the evil clerics in history, from Judas to the present have failed to prevent Our Lord from transubstantiating, Our Lady, the Saints, the Angels, and the Holy Souls from interceding and appearing, the Sacraments from working, and the Liturgical Year from turning – Thank God!”  —Quote from Charles Coulombe
