Book/Printed Material Image 101 of America of to-morrow,
With the steady increase of funds, the power for good of the young society is rapidly augmenting, and it will not be long before the Church of Rome will have nothing to envy the Protestant churches, as far as their home missions are concerned; and if already, even without this means of diffusion, it has developed two or three times as fast as the most prosperous of the Protestant sects, what will not now be its progress! It may in a quarter of a century prevail over all the other confessions combined, it may make of the United States, according to a dream that is no longer merely visionary, the first Catholic nation of the world.
Among the motives for hopefulness which I came across in my last trip, none seemed to me more comforting than the foundation of the Extension Society.*
* Another thing that still further increases this happy outlook is the fertile work being done all over the United States by the missions for non-Catholics, since the time when, under the direction of the Paulist Fathers, Elliott and Doyle, the Apostolic Mission House of Washington prepares for this work the young priests who are sent to them by a number of bishops for this special purpose. This excellent work, which is spoken of in “The Land of the Strenuous Life,” Ch. XIII, has an organ, The Missionary, published monthly in Washington. We may note, too, as an event full of promise, the fact that the bishops of Canada founded there also in 1908 a Catholic Extension Society.
