About the Author


James Cardinal Gibbons was a priest and archbishop of Baltimore from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. After hearing a sermon by Clarence Walworth, co-founder of the Paulists, he entered St. Mary's Seminary and was ordained a priest in 1861. He was known for his popular sermons, which he gave on diverse topics and applied to Christianity in general. Later he was ordained as a bishop of Baltimore in 1877, a position he held until his death. Some of his books include The Faith of Our Fathers, Our Christian Heritage, The Ambassador of Christ, and A Retrospect of Fifty Years. Father Gibbons died in 1921.

This book covers all of the beliefs of the Catholic Church, from Mary to the Eucharist, it is all in here. Cardinal Gibbons shows through Scripture and Early Christians, that the 'Faith of Our Fathers' and the Catholic faith, are one in the same. Written in the 19th century, this book again proves that the Catholic Church has the fullness of the Christian faith, and has since 33AD!!!
