"And the police searched his room! Oh, my God! I'm done!" He collapsed in his chair. Jack shook his head. 鈥淲hy truly,鈥?said I, 鈥渋f that be the case, I give up all pretension to skill in the science of sins.鈥? 免费a级毛片 I know the thoughts that were surging, by Kennedy's suggestion, through her mind鈥攖he past of her life, her father, Honore Chappelle; the old love-affair with Shattuck; the attainment of social ambitions with Wilford鈥攁nd back again to the life of her girlhood and the profession of her father. But whom do you expect to convince, upon your simple asseveration, without the slightest shadow of proof, and in the face of every imaginable contradiction, that priests who preach nothing but the grace of Jesus Christ, the purity of the Gospel, and the obligations of baptism, have renounced at once their baptism, the Gospel, and Jesus Christ? Who will believe it, fathers? Wretched as you are, do you believe it yourselves? What a sad predicament is yours, when you must either prove that they do not believe in Jesus Christ, or must pass for the most abandoned calumniators. Prove it, then, fathers. Name that 鈥渨orthy clergyman鈥?who, you say, attended that assembly at Bourg-Fontaine in 1621, and discovered to Brother Filleau the design there concerted of overturning the Christian religion. Name those six persons whom you allege to have formed that conspiracy. Name the individual who is designated by the letters A. A., who you say 鈥渨as not Antony Arnauld鈥?(because he convinced you that he was at that time only nine years of age), 鈥渂ut another person, who you say is still in life, but too good a friend of M. Arnauld not to be known to him.鈥?You know him, then, fathers; and consequently, if you are not destitute of religion yourselves, you are bound to delate that impious wretch to the king and parliament, that he may be punished according to his deserts. You must speak out, fathers; you must name the person, or submit to the disgrace of being henceforth regarded in no other light than as common liars, unworthy of being ever credited again. Good Father Valerien has taught us that this is the way in which such characters should be 鈥減ut to the rack鈥?and brought to their senses. Your silence upon the present challenge will furnish a full and satisfactory confirmation of this diabolical calumny. Your blindest admirers will be constrained to admit that it will be 鈥渢he result, not of your goodness, but your impotency鈥? and to wonder how you could be so wicked as to extend your hatred even to the nuns of Port-Royal, and to say, as you do in page 14, that The Secret Chaplet of the Holy Sacrament, composed by one of their number, was the first fruit of that conspiracy against Jesus Christ; or, as in page 95, that 鈥渢hey have imbibed all the detestable principles of that work鈥? which is, according to your account, a lesson in Deism.鈥?Your falsehoods regarding that book have already been triumphantly refuted, in the defence of the censure of the late Archbishop of Paris against Father Brisacier. That publication you are incapable of answering; and yet you do not scruple to abuse it in a more shameful manner than ever, for the purpose of charging women, whose piety is universally known, with the vilest blasphemy.
