Overview

Excerpt from Christianity and Infallibility: Both or Neither

The zealous and learned author of this work was delayed in its first publication on my account; a pile of manuscript was too much for me. However, I forced myself to get through with it when I considered how very much more he had to do who had written these papers; and he, too, was sick.

Father Lyons was a ceaseless worker. In the great University of Maynooth his industry and ability made him a class leader - a much-coveted honor. When, after some years on the mission, his health rendered him unfit for the active duties of a priest, he still yearned to co-operate, in some way, with the Divine Master in the salvation of souls. Here came to him a thought which he made known to me: "The American people are intellectually the most just people on earth, no people are more open to conviction. If I can prove to them that Christ Our Lord instituted an infallible authority, that this authority was to last for ever, and that the Catholic Church is this authority, the whole case is won." Thus he thought, and for this purpose, and this alone, did he work.

This new impression is brought out to make reparation for the original delay.

If any financial advantage should come from the sale it will be turned over to St. Thomas Aquinas Sanitarium, Mentone, Cal., for the benefit of the poor sick sufferers cared for by the Sisters of Mercy. This, too, will be the wish of the author; for he loved the sick and poor of Jesus Christ.
