Excerpt from A Short History of the Catholic Church in England
When our Saviour sent forth His Apostles to preach the Gospel_ Britain had already come under the power of the Roman Emperors.

And so it came to pass that this distant island and Jerusalem, where by Christ's death on the cross the redemption of the world was accomplished, then formed parts of a worldwide organised system of government whose centre was at Rome.
