Excerpt from The Unity of the Church Explained: The English Schism and Several Heresies Examined O ye sons of man, how long will you be dull of heart? Why do you love vanity and seek after lying? - Psalm iv. 3. Protestants! you have separated yourselves, by your nefarious Schism, from the unity of Christendom; but why do you persist in the separation, regardless of the admonition of God to live in the Catholic peace? It being written, Ps. xxi. 18, They have parted my garment amongst them, and upon my vesture they cast lots; why should you become dividers of the Lord's tunic, woven with charity from above, which even the crucifiers of Christ did t divide? Why would you divide the great linen sheet (Acts, x. 11) let down by the four corners, perhaps the four gospels, from heaven? You are deaf to the divine saying, Ps. ii. 7, The Lord hath said to me: Thou art my son; this day have I begotten thee. Ask of me, and I will give thee the Gentiles for thy inheritance and the utmost parts of the earth for thy possession. Ps. xxi. 28. All the ends of the earth shall remember, and shall be converted to the Lord, and all the kindreds of the Gentiles shall adore in his sight: the kingdom is the Lord's; and he shall have dominion over the nations: Ps. xlix. The God of gods, the Lord hath spoken: and he hath called the earth from the rising of the sun to the going down thereof, out of Sion the loveliness of his beauty. If you choose t to understand the Psalmist, hear the Lord himself speaking by his own mouth in the gospel, Luke, xxiv. 46, It behoved that all things that were written of Christ in the law, and prophets, and psalms, be fulfilled; and that penance and remission of sins should be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
