The Church in Northern Ohio and in the Diocese of Cleveland
Excerpt from The Church in Northern Ohio and in the Diocese of Cleveland: From 1749 to 1890On entering a large city the eye is filled with the evidences of the material struggle for life - some of them grand, some of them dismal. One cannot but reflect on that incessant activity which has upreared the vast mart. And yet, above all the massive or elegant structures that symbolize the various successes, pursuits and ambitions of man, there towers the cross of the Catholic church.Passing out into the country, in the more modest village, and amid surroundings nearer to the God of nature, still we find the upreared shaft, reminder of mankind's redemption.These temples, lowly or superb, are the evidences of the civilization that builds beyond time, and yet preserves all that is worth preserving in time. But the temples are not self-upreared, and back of this the civilization on which depends the security of the temporal, there have been architects and builders at work - their master, the Supreme Architect of the universe, and their prime domain, the spiritual. In this domain there is the perfection of order. From the lowliest church to the great cathedral divine authority overrules. There is unison, guidance, from parish to diocese, until all centre at Rome, where is the Church."Ubi Petrus, ibi ecclesia."Those then who have mastered a diocese, from the building priest to the artchitect bishop, have founded more, and more lasting, than the teeming city, whatsoever the wonders of its construction or the myriads of its population. Self-interest built the city, self-sacrifice the diocese. Empires decay; religion remains, rooted in the hearts of man.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
