lit. Rev. Bishop Keane. rector ot the
Catholic University, delivered the ad
dress, and Ordinal Gibbons, with seven
archbishops, about twenty bishops and one
hundred priests were present.
The day marked an epoch In the his
tory of St. Patrick's Church. Mass was
celebrated at 9 o'clock, but active prepara
tions for the event began very early in tbe
morning. The setae In tbe church was
beautiful and Impressive
Bars of tbe morning sun stole through
tbe circular windows, and, softened by
their passage through the warm-hued glass,
cast slanting rays into tbe sanctuary. Tbe
gold stars In tbe dome twinkled gladly as
though enraptured with the ceremonies
going on below. The saints and apostles
whose presentments grace the walls. look
ed down with pious and complacent faces.
A portion of the worshipers were women,
and here and there in tbe nodding tumult
of flowered, winged and ribboned hats were
groups of the spotless and demure bonnets
of nuns. Shortly before the Iron tongued
bell began to clang forth tbe signal of the
approaching ceremonies acolytes, robed In
lace aud crimson cloth, began thellghttngot
the altar candles.
SCENES IN THE CHURCH.
The hundreds of Incandescent bulbs were
were turned on, and the whole interior ot
the great church flashed with gold. Then
the organ sounded forth its strains of praise,
softly at first. Increasing till all the echoes
of tbechurUiwereawakeued in sacred peans.
Front seats had been reserved for the
delegates to ibeEucharlstlc Congress, and
as" these moved from the west door to
wards tbe altar in columns of twos the con
gregation stood and tbe organ and choir
pealed forth "Laudale Dominum." As
in their regal purple vestments entered
Cardinal Gibbons came with them, but
walked alone and took a seal on a
crimson-curtained and campled dais at
the right. The "congregation stood as
they moved into their places. Following
them came alcolyles bearing tall candles
and escorting the)fficers of the mass.
These were: Celebrant, Mgr. Satolll;
assistant priest. Very Rev. Magmen; dea

or ceremonies, Rev. J. F. McGee. of St. Pat
rick's Church, and Rev. G. Dougherty, of

Again the choir burst froth in song and
the ierfume of incense mingled with the
fragrance of the sweet flow era with which
the sanctuary was embellished.

When the mass had nearly been con
cluded Bishop Keane, rector ofthe Catholic
University, mounted the pulpit and began
his address, which was listened to with
By way or beginning, he announced that
the first 6eslon of tbe Encharistic Con
gress would convene in the assembly room
of the university at 2 30 and that at 8
p. m., nt St. Patrick's, there would be
an hour of solemn adoration of the most
blessed sacrament, with benediction.
He began with the words which Jesus
used at the most critical period in bis life
"I will not call you my converted, but my
friends." It was, said the bishop, at one
of the saddest moments in His life that
Christ uttered these solemn words. When
He said them. His life was about to draw
to a close on Calvary. Thus was His love
for man known to be great.
BISHOP KEANE ON SUN DAT LIBERTY.
Jesus knew the meaning of the word
friend. He knew that it meant mutual
awe. He knew that If" as that bond which
reached over chasms and equalized in
equalities. Jesus was alwajs true. Bishop
Kearc advised the members or the Encha
ristic League that they were descendants
"You are the friends of Jesus, of onr
Eucbarlsllc Lord. Welcome then, the
frierds of Jesus. Welcome as such to the
Catholic hearts ard homes of Washington,
and thrice welcome to the Catholic Uai
"This Institution puts at your disposal
all of Its conveniences, nnd prays jou God
speed in your labors. The fact of all facts
was God. No Christian could hesitate
that ro mystery could compare with the
"Mm after man arises throughout nil
ages whom the men of his time agree ta be
great, but how small they were in com
parison to the King of Kings? What in
terests nrcNike the interests of the soul,
or eternal happiness and light? What in
terests should we consider as we hoi.ld
the interests of the Lord? What human in
terest or honor is like that of being jinked
with him? The responsibility resting upon
themas friends of Jesus was groat. "Lord,
what wilt thou have me do"" Is what they
should ever be saying. Then they do as
commanded There should he a unity and
blending of arreetion and endeavor, and
nlrltnnd r baracter, and disposition, which
should link amity to amity. Oneness of
heart and of mind was pleasing to God."
BUhop Keane spoke at length on the
dc-ecrntlon of the Bablialli. The cry or
"liberty" really meant often only "li
cense." The musical programme was as follow-:
"Laudate Dominum"; "Kiric Gloria,"
Gounod; "Greda." Gounod: "Ave Mnrln,"
Mrs. Paulina Mainn and violin nbligato by
Mr. Sol Mln'Mcr; "Sanclus Benedictiis."
