CHAPTER III
PUBLIC LATTERS 1848-1849

seeds or maturing the fruits of Christianity; and whether it is heretical and combustionable to believe the contrary. There are many still existing who are firmly of opinion that religion is, or ought to be, somewhat different from a mere state-engine. These, it must be confest, are a minority in all nations : but perhaps it may be argued, and almost conceded, that in every nation, excepting the gentle, the generous, the veracious French, virtuous and prudent men are also in the minority.
The most intelligent, not only in the Roman States, but in every State throughout the whole of Europe, entertain and always have entertained the opinion, that the secular power of the Pope should be disunited from the ecclesiastical. But whether they thought it or not, if the Roman people thought it, that was sufficient. The Pope had broken his word with them ; he had deceived and cajoled them; he had rendered nugatory the reforms he himself had introduced. Conscious that actions so flagitious must deprive him not only of all authority but of all respect, he fled in the attire of a servant from the city; the triple crown was surmounted by the cockt hat. He became in verity, "the servant of servants," the servant of a Frenchman, who himself proved he could do what Christ said nobody could do, in serving two masters. Pio Nono carried his cross with him to Gaeta, not supported on shoulder, right or left, but on a ribbon, and out of sight. No nails for Pio ! At Gaeta there fell before his knees, the murderer of Messina, the allie of Austria and of France. Rome has not fallen at his feet again. Her walls are levelled to the earth by French cannon ; but subjugated France will never triumph over subjugated Rome.
The Pope in temporal concerns is an extremely weak, improvident man, and vainly attempts to supply by cunning his deficiency of strength. In spiritual concerns it may be impious to doubt his infallibility, not merely in the dogmas but also in the ordinances and duties of Christianity. Inspired by the Holy Ghost, as every good Catholick must acknowledge him to be, surely it is wonderful that he should think himself inspired to extend, not his doctrines only, but likewise his dominions, by fire and sword. It would have puzzled Pascal, and peradventure may puzzle M. de Montalembert and other devout Catholicks, to account for this discrepancy. Had only the Gospel condemned it, had only Jesus
