In proportion as man advances in life, and
withdraws himself from maternal care,
the passions god him-griefdraws tears
from him, and gloomy thoughts possess
his soul. His companions can no lon

words sufficiently enticing to restore him
to virtue. A stronger support becomes
necessary to him; lie seeks a Being who
will defend him from his own passions
-if he find him not, he will perish, for
God alone knows the profound myste
ries of our hearts.
Religious sentiments only prevent our fall.
I say more. they elevate us and make
us men. Very dif'erent from other
aninals,who have received weapons and
instict man can neither live,nor be eleva
ted without morality and religion. His in
tellect and his heart teach him, that
there is a God, and in proportion as he
banishes from his mind, this idea. lie
loses his strength anti his greatness.
Was it not at the moment, in which im
piety reigned among the naiions. that
Athens, Rome, and Babylon beheld the
term of their power? They perished like
bodies destroyed by licentiousness-like
the fallen Angels of whom Scripture
speaks, who no longer sostained by the
All-Powerful, fell at once into the eter
nal abyss. God has willed himself to
be the sole defence of his most perfect
work. He has bound man to himself,
by the necissities of his heart, and the
grandeur of his thoughtQ; he has made
him strong by religion. and he has raised
him from that abasement, in which he
finds himself on earth, in giving him the
power of living in the heavens, by faith
and hope. Aime Martin.
