Excerpt from Faith, the Victory: Or a Comprehensive View of the Principal Doctrines of the Christian Religion
The actual condition of the country, because of the deplorable and sanguinary war now waged, and of the blockade which is enforced, prevents us from procuring the many excellent works, which have been written and published elsewhere, for explaining and defending the doctrines of religion. Yet it is not only desirable, but even most necessary, that we should have some books of religious instruction for our people, and especially for the youth of both sexes, who, either in the schools, or under the paternal roof, arc at present receiving their education. Moreover, 'among those not of our church, there appears to be a growing disposition to become acquainted with Catholic doctrines, and to examine for themselves into the nature and grounds of our faith, and it is difficult for them to obtain the necessary books, or for the priests, from whom they arc asked, to furnish them. As in other eases, when men cannot obtain what is deemed necessary or very important, they exert themselves to prepare a suitable substitute which may answer, I have been induced, in view of our manifest need, to write and publish this volume, notwithstanding the difficulties attending such an enterprise in our present circumstances.
