An Episcopal Dictionary of the Church

Catholic Champion

A monthly journal published by the Guild of St. Ignatius, New York, and edited by Arthur Ritchie. Its slogan was 1 Sm 17:50, “So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone.” It was “to speak out fearlessly on behalf of every good cause no matter which Bishop, Standing Committee or Board of Missions shall assume the role of Goliath.” It was nicknamed the “Catholic Scorpion.” It merged with The Living Church. It began publication in Dec. 1888, and its last issue was published in Nov. 1901.
