Jonas shows that the Paulists had to engage in two precarious enterprises. First, they had to commend "America", not Catholic America but general unconverted America, to Catholics as a good place to live and be and work. Naturally, they liked America. "Supernaturally", spiritually, they still had to learn to affirm more of its potential than they had. At the same time, they had to commend Catholicism to America. Ths meant that they had to make it look other than menacing, nonthreatening. It had to be alluring, attractive. Otherwise, why listen to the Paulist appeals and come to Christ through the Church of His Vicar on Earth?" - Foreword by Martin E Marty. ; The Heritage of American Catholicism; Ex-Library; Vol. 17; xiv, 337 pages.
