“It must be remembered, in dealing with this subject, that the Roman Catholic Church is the
mystery of iniquity, and that it perverts the gospel of Christ while at the same time claiming to be the
one efficient conserver of the gospel. Roman Catholic teaching professes to give to Christ his place as
the one mediator, but it gives to the church such exclusive power in the ministry of this mediation as in
reality makes the Roman Catholic priesthood the practical mediatorial agency. The following extract
makes this clear:

“Catholics believe that our Lord Jesus Christ is alone the great center of the, Christian religion,
the fountain of all grace, virtue, and merit, as in the natural world (if the comparison may be allowed)
the sun is the center and enlivening source of light, heat, and growth.
“This grand truth they believe to be the vital, essential part of Christianity, ‘for other foundation
no man can lay but that which is laid; which is Christ Jesus.’ 1 Corinthians 3:11.”
“They believe that union with Jesus Christ is the highest and noblest aim of man, and that only
the Holy Catholic Church supplies the means for this union with Jesus Christ [italics ours].” – “Catholic
Belief,” Reverend Joseph Fad di Bruno, D. D. (R. C.), Page 33.
