THE

UNIVERSAL CHURCH;

Its Faith, Doctrine, and Constitution.

“ There are times when prudence permits us to hide the love we
have for our brethren; but there are none in which we are permitted
to conceal the truth. In fact the truth is not exclusively ours; we
are but its depositaries, witnesses, and defenders.

“ It is the light of God in man, which should illuminate the
whole world; and when we conceal it, we are unjust towards our
brethren, to whom it belongs as well as to us, and ungrateful towards
the Creator of Light, who has shed it abroad in our hearts."

Massillon, Bishop of Clermont.
