The Practice of Idolatry free pdf Excerpt from The Practice of Idolatry Note - This criticism does not deny the Catholic doctrine of the proper honor and invocation of saints. It condemns the practice which gives them the prayer of God. When I speak of the church in this criticism, I do not mean the divine power in the Sacraments nor the infallible voice of the chair of Peter. I mean the church- my meaning is seen in the context. When I speak of Rome, I do not mean Pius X nor Benedict XII- I mean Rome. We believe that Jesus is God- therefore, centuries and ages ago, before our Lord took human nature, he was still present everywhere, and present by grace in souls. He was still Jesus in person. Grace was an actual fact. He was present bestowing grace, and present by grace as Jesus, but not yet incarnate in his actual local body of the human generation of Eve. Mary did not exist at this time- but Jesus existed and was our Saviour- purifying bodies and souls then as now by grace. (Mich. 5:2. Apoc. 13:8. 2 Tim. 1:9. 1 Cor. 10: 1-4.) So long ago as the time of Solomon, speaking to the Jews of their Holy Place, he said "My Eyes and my Heart are always there." Thus he expressed that fundamental doctrine of religion that God is here, and knows and loves us. But to the Maryites he is not present- and the eyes and heart of Mary, a local and limited human being, created in time, are addressed as the heart and eyes present. Since the incarnation, when the eyes and heart of our Lord are not only his presence as God, but also the presence of his humanity in heaven and in the Sacrament- not only in person and grace, but also in flesh and blood- he is ignored by those who address themselves in word and heart to a woman who is not present and who address her in his place. If you enter a Catholic church at any time you will be almost sure to find Maryites kneeling before the "altar of Mary," adoring her and praying to her. One of the teachings of the false prophet is that we must go to church to "pay a visit to our Lady." She is taught exactly the same as our Lord in practice. How can we expect anything else but idolatry in fact, when it is taught in word and practice? If the Maryites really believed in a difference between the worship of Jesus and that of Mary, they would feel a difference and express a difference. But the evidence goes to show that what they feel is the presence of Mary and not that of Jesus. Even those who have also some love for our Lord worship both in the same way. No wonder there are Modernists. More prayer is given by the Maryites to the "altar of Mary" than to the altar of Jesus- and when kneeling before the altar of Jesus they are busy in praying, not to Jesus, but to Mary. (Zach. 13:6.)
