    Excerpt from St. Louis Catholic Historical Review, Vol. 1

    That a Review should be brought to existence for the avowed purpose of dealing with the Catholic history of the Diocese of St. Louis needs no apology: an apology would be in order to explain rather why the Rome of the West has not as yet found her historian.

    Has she not a Catholic past long, glorious and eventful? She may, indeed, without fear of hearing her claim challenged, look back for the date of her first consecration to her Divine Redeemer to that bright day in May 1541, when Hernando De Soto erected on a high hill, near the Rio del Espiritu Santa, somewhere in southeast Mis souri, a cross made of the highest and largest pine-tree that could be found. And since that inaugural event, now almost totally shrouded in the mists Of prehistoric times, as years and centuries rolled by, the monuments of Catholicity, very slowly at first, more rapidly later on, dotted this land in ever increasing numbers. Scarcely had the last century attained the years Of majority, when a thriving Church, with St. Louis at its center, had sprung up from the seed laboriously cast in the virgin soil during the preceding ages. In a short while it filled the land, the shadow of it covered the hills, it stretched forth its branches unto the sea and its boughs unto the river Neither was this rapid growth one of wild and barren suckers: this luxuriant vitality was the vitality of fruitfulness, and before long almost every year a new Church was carved out of what had first been the vast Diocese of St. Louis.
