Earth to Heaven
Msgr John Vaughan.
First printed with Imprimatur in 1902. 184 page book.
Beginning with the merely natural gift of the right use of our reason, the author has shown that by simple force of looking on the world into which we are born, we must preceive that all which we see, either by our bodily or by our mental powers, invariably has a cause; so that when we see effects of whose cause we are ignorant, the conclusion which ensues is not that such effects have no cause, but the cause, if unknown, is so to us by reason of our ignorance. The conclusion is the necessary foundation for the initial belief in the existence of God, and in the attribute of His supreme justice: “he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is the rewarder of them that seek Him.”
