THE FAITH OF OUR FATHERS
By James Cardinal Gibbons
Explains the basic tenets of the Catholic Faith and why we hold them. Delves into the historical background of virtually everything people find hard to understand about our Religion, such as priestly celibacy, sacred images, the Church and the Bible, the primacy of Peter, Communion under one kind, invocation of the Saints, etc. First published in 1876, when there was much anti- Catholic sentiment in the U.S., it sold 1.4 million copies in 40 years and has been reprinted many times since.
Cardinal James 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. Gibbons was elevated to the status of Cardinal in 1886, the second American to receive such a distinction, after John McCloskey. Some of his books include The Faith of Our Fathers, Our Christian Heritage, The Ambassador of Christ, and A Retrospect of Fifty Years. Cardinal Gibbons died in 1921.

Jesus - Mathew: 24 - Mount of Olives Prophecy
left the temple area and was going away, when his disciples approached him to
point out the temple buildings.
He said to them in reply, "You see all these things, do you not? Amen, I say to you, there will not be left here a stone upon another stone that will not be thrown down."
he was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples approached him privately
and said, "Tell us, when will this happen, and what sign will there be
of your coming, and of the end of the age?"
Jesus said to them in reply, "See that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, saying, 'I am the Messiah,' and they will deceive many. You will hear of wars and reports of wars; see that you are not alarmed, for these things must happen, but it will not yet be the end.
"Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there will be famines and earthquakes from place to place. All these are the beginning of the labor pains.
they will hand you over to persecution, and they will kill you. You will be
hated by all nations because of my name.
"And then many will be led into sin; they will betray and hate one another. Many false prophets will arise and deceive many; and because of the increase of evildoing, the love of many will grow cold. But the one who perseveres to the end will be saved.
"And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the world as a witness to all nations, and then the end will come. When you see the desolating abomination spoken of through Daniel the prophet standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), then those in Judea must flee to the mountains, a person on the housetop must not go down to get things out of his house, a person in the field must not return to get his cloak.
"Woe to pregnant women and nursing mothers in those days. Pray that your flight not be in winter or on the sabbath, for at that time there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will be.
"And if those days had not been shortened, no one would be saved; but for the sake of the elect they will be shortened.
"If anyone says to you then, 'Look, here is the Messiah!' or, 'There he is!' do not believe it. False messiahs and false prophets will arise, and they will perform signs and wonders so great as to deceive, if that were possible, even the elect.
"Behold, I have told it to you beforehand. So if they say to you, 'He is in the desert,' do not go out there; if they say, 'He is in the inner rooms,' do not believe it.
"For just as lightning comes from the east and is seen as far as the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man be. Wherever the corpse is, there the vultures will gather.
"Immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
"And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming upon the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
"And he will send out his angels with a trumpet blast, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.
a lesson from the fig tree. When its branch becomes tender and sprouts leaves,
you know that summer is near. In the same way, when you see all these things,
know that he is near, at the gates.
"Amen, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things have taken place.
"Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. But of that day and hour no one knows, neither the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone.
"For as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. In (those) days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day that Noah entered the ark. They did not know until the flood came and carried them all away. So will it be (also) at the coming of the Son of Man.
"Two men will be out in the field; one will be taken, and one will be left. Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken, and one will be left. Therefore, stay awake! For you do not know on which day your Lord will come.
"Be sure of this: if the master of the house had known the hour of night when the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and not let his house be broken into.
too, you also must be prepared, for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of
Man will come.
"Who, then, is the faithful and prudent servant, whom the master has put in charge of his household to distribute to them their food at the proper time?
"Blessed is that servant whom his master on his arrival finds doing so. Amen, I say to you, he will put him in charge of all his property. But if that wicked servant says to himself, 'My master is long delayed,' and begins to beat his fellow servants, and eat and drink with drunkards, the servant's master will come on an unexpected day and at an unknown hour and will punish him severely and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth."
