Project Canterbury Six Sermons to Men Preached in St. Ignatius' Church
New York City
During Lent, 1888. By the Rev. Arthur Ritchie New York: American Bank Note Co., 1888.
Sermon I. Facts and Fancies; Or, What to believe
Sermon II. Christians and Other People
Sermon III. Why I Am a Catholic
Sermon IV. The Real Presence
Sermon V. Practical Religion
Sermon VI. After Death What?
The following Sermons were preached on the Thursday evenings of Lent, 1888, in St. Ignatius' Church, New York City, at the request of the members of the Men's Guild of the parish. The Guild also asked that a copy of the Sermons might be furnished them for publication. While I am well aware that they are neither profound nor unusually scholarly, I hope they may not prove wholly valueless. The truths of the Catholic religion must always be attractive to earnest and unprejudiced minds. My only aim has been to set forth as simply, and yet as attractively as I knew how, some of those great truths, which are to me dearer than life itself; and if I have succeeded in helping anyone to know them better and to love them more than he had hitherto done, I am devoutly grateful to Almighty God.
