Venerable Brethren of the Clergy-Beloved Children
of the I.ailij:
After the lapso <,f> ?..oro th!,n fourteen yenni it
ha? again Inen permitted us to assemble iuPlonory
Council, for Hie piirpooa of moro eflcctuully uniting
our effort- lor Hie promotion of xlio great object of
our ministry-Iho advancement of the interests of
the Church of God. God, Indeed, uccila not human
agency, although Ho vouchsafes to employ it. ha
j- BB?Utnlng our nature our Divino Redeemer sub
jected h.m-'clf to its conditions, and was niado Uko
unto us, sin only exceptcd; so He baa willed that
in Un) establishment and maintenance of His
Church, human agency should bo employed, oud
the means bent adapted for tho attainment of ita
great cud should be solcctctl.
Arnon" the means tho assembling in council of
the Bi ?hops placed over tho different portions of
Christ's Hock, in union with, and in obedionco to
the Chief Bishop, to whom He has committed tho
caro ol'tlio whole- lamba and sheep, pooplo and
pastor-- has always been reckoned aa among the
most ofliencious. 'Heneo tho rovoronco with which
tho Christian world baa ever rogarded tho Councils
of tho Church.

niu_vrioNS OF THE cnuncn TO TOE STATE.
Tho encmios of the church fail not to represent
her claims as incompatible with tho independence
of tho civil power, and her action OB impeding
the exertions of the State to promote tho well-be
ing of society. So far from these chargeB boing
founded in fact, tho authority and induonco of tho
Church will bo found to bo the moat ofiicacious sup
port of the temporal authority by which society is
f'ovonicd. Tho Church, indeed, does not proclaim
ho absoluto and entire indopondonco of the civil
Rowor, becauso it teaches with tho Apostle, that
all power is of God;" that the temporal magistrate
ia His minister, and that tho power of the sword
he wields is a dologatod oxcrciso of authority com
mitted to him from on high. For tho children of
tho Church obedionco to tho civil power is not a
submission to forco which may not bo resisted, nor
merely the complianco with a condition for poaco
and security; but a roligious duty founded on obe
dience to Cod, by whoso authority the civil magis
trate excrcisos bia power. *****
Wliilc cheerfully recognizing tho fact that hith
erto tho General and Stato Governments of our
country, except in somo brief intorvalB of oxoite
mont and delusion, bavo not interfered with our
ecclesiastical organization or civil rights, wo Bull
have to lament that in many of tho Statos wo aro
not aa yet permitted legally to moko thoso arrange
ments for tho security of church property which
arc in accordance with the canons and disciplino of
tho Catholic Church. In aomo of tho States wo
gratefully acknowledge that all ia granted in this
regard that wo could reaaonably ask for. Tho
right of the Church to possoss property, whothcr
churches, roeidencos for the clergy, cometories, or
school houecB, asylums, Sec, cannot do denied
without depriving her of a nocessary means of pro
moting the ond for which she haB been established.
We arc awaro of tho alleged grounds for this re
fusal to rccognizo tho Church in her corporate
capacity, unless on tho condition that in the matter
of tho tonuro of ecclesiastical property abo con
form to tho general laws providing for this object.
These laws, nowover, aro for tho most part based
on principles which she cannot accept, without
departing from hor practice from the beginning, as
soon as Bho waa permitted to enjoy liberty of
worship. They aro tho expression of a distrust of
ecclesiastical power, as such; and aro tho fruit of
the misrepresentations which bavo been mado of
the action of tho Church in past ages. As well
might the civil power proscribo to her the doc
trines she is to teach and tho worship with which
ehe is to honor God, as to impose on her a system
of holding hor temporalities, which is alien to her
prinoiplcs, and which is borrowed from those who
bavo rejected her anthority. Instead of seeking to
disprove tho various reasons alleged for this denial
of tho Church's right*) in some or the States, wo
con ton t ourselves with the formal protost wo here
by onter against it; and briofly remark, that oven
in the supposition, which wo by no means admit,
that such denial was the result of legitimate mo
tives, the denial itself is incompatible with tho full
measure of ecclesiastical or religious liborty,
which wo oro supposod to onjoy.
Nor is this au unimportant matter, or one which
has not practical results of tho most embarrassmg
character. Not only aro we obliged to place church
property in conditions of extremo hazard, becaueo
not permitted to manage our church temporalities
OH Catholic principles, out in at least ono of thoso
United Stat?B-Missouri-laws bavo beon passed
by which all church property, not held hy corpora
tions, is subjected to taxation, and tho avowed ob
iect of this discriminating legislation is hostility
o tho Catholic Church. In concluding theso ro
marks, we merely refer to the attempt modo in that
Stato to make the exercise of tho ecclesiastical
ministry depend on a condition laid down by the
TnE aUCBAKDEHT OF M.tTnritoNY.
To that sacrament of tho Church which is high
est in [fal typical siguillcation-the sacrament of
matrimony-we feel it our duty to direct in a par
ticular manner your uttcntion. From tho begin
ning, as wc leam from St. Paul, tho union of man
and woman was a groat mystery or sacrament; be
cause, from the boginning, it prefigured tho union
of Christ with his Church. In nothing perhaps is
the influenco of the Spirit of Truth moro ovident in
the leaching of the Chnrcb than in tho caro with
which she has protected this "great sacrament,"
which, hy so many, agrcoably to what St. Paul had
foretold, was stigmatized as unlawful, while by
others it waB unduly exalted above sacred virgin
ity, contrary to tho oxpress teaching of Christ and
his inspired Apostle. Tho holiness of Christian
matrimony is connected with our most sacred as
sociations and dutiea; and it cannot bo loBt
sight of in however small dogioo, without
entailing the moat serious couaoquoucca.
rho Church has shown in reference to
this subject a spirit of watchfulness and
solicitude, which alono wonld cntitlo her to tho
gratitude of man, and causo her to bo regarded as
the most faithful guardian of public and privato
morality. Many or tho innumorablo contostB in
which she waa compollod to ongago with tho de
positaries of the Civil Power, during tho middle
?han yiold complianco with tho will of a monarch.
wnoisacrificed Ii.a country's faith to his unbridled
passions. In this matter sho knew no distinction
between the privato man and tho monarch; contra
ry to wuat an apologist for tho worst passions ai d
-?nobt cruel doods of this unhappy rulor insists
should havo been her line of conduct. Even in our
own days, hor conservativo authority has boon ex
erted m the same causo; and tho anger of tho first
Napoloon was incurred by the rofusal of Pius VII.,
or Holy memory, to declaro invalid a marriago con
tracted between that rulor's brothor and a Protes
tant lady of the city in which wo are now assom
i . ? ?r . V tll? Bamo monarch sought to brook
his nrst fa.th ho was obliged to havo recourse to
aJJ cxt'".(t tribunal of tho dioccso of Paris-resus
citated lor that special purposo-which presumed
to docido a question which tho wisdom of tho Holy
?oo lias reserved for its own exclusivo j urisdic
Wo recall theso facts, bccauBO thoy most strong! v
oipress tho principio of tho Church in rogard to
matrimony, and must bo rogardod by every woll
rogulated mind as among tho brightest Jowols of
her crown. w0 recall thom, also, in ordor to en
rorco our solemn admonition t > oui* llookB, to givo
no car to tho false and degradiYg thoorioB on tho
subject of matrimony, which ar. boldlr put foward
by the onomloa of tho Church. According.?? thoso
tnoorica, mai riago is a moro Oivil contract, which
tho civil pu.y.r ?H |f, regulate, and from which an
injured or dinaUafiod party may reloaso himself or
norsor by tim remedy of divorce, so as to bo ablo
lawiuiiy t<, contract now engagements. This is in
*T ltr.C(?,.ra'lict?01' with tho wordBof ChriBt:
-T i .. ?,,as Jo'?cd together lot no man put
asunder. As the guardian of Ood's holy hw, tho
Church condemns tina falso theory, from which

with palo to the i-M/.idalous multiplication of tbcBO
unlawful separations, which, muro than any other
causo, are sapping the foundations of morality and
preparing sooioty for an ontiro dissolution ol' tho
nasiB on which it rests.
AID FOB THE POPE.
When lost assombled in Plenary Council, wo
callod on you to aid tho Holy Father, by your con
tributions, and vou gonorously responded to our
appeal. Sinco then tho richest and moat fortilo
portion? of tho States of tho Church havo boon
wrcBtcd from bim by tho hands of violonco, and
his position has becomo still moro critical nud cin
barraased. In order to onablo him to atesist those
who aro dc])cndcnt on him, and to carry on the af
fairs of tho Universal Church, it is absolutely neces
sary that tho children of tho church in tdl parts of
tho world should como to his holp. \Yo have
therefore felt it to bo our duty to direct that an
annual collection bo licncoforth tnkon up in all tho
dioceses In tho country on the Sunday within the
Octave of tho Foast of SH. Toter and Paul, or such
other Bunda? nB the ordinary may direct, to be de
voted to this purpose.
ON BOOKS AND NEWSPAPEBS-THE PBESS.
Tho Council of Trout requires that all books
which treat of religion should bo submitted before
publication to tho Ordinary of the dior.fjo iu which
they aro to bo published, for tho purposo of obtain
ing his sanction, so as to assuro tho faithful that
they contain nothing contrary to faith or morals.
This law ?B still of forco; and in tho former Plenary
Council its observance was urged, and the Bishops
woro exhorted to approve of no book which had
not boon proviouBly examined by thomsclves, or by
clergymen uppointcd by thom for that purposo,
and io confino such approbation to works publish
ed in their rcspoctivo dioceses. Tho faithful should
bo awaro that such approbation is rather of a neg
ativo than of a positivo character; that it by no
moana imparts to tho statements or sentiments
such works may contain any episcopal sanction;
but merely gu?ranteos thom as freo from errora in
faith or morals.
In many, also, of our dioceses, there aro pub
lished Catholic papers, mostly of a religious char
actor ; and many of mich papers bear upon thom
the statement that thoy aro tho "organs" of tho
Bishop of tho dioccso in which thoy aro published,
and sometimes of othor Bishops in whoso dioceses
they circulate. We ohoorfulfy acknowledge tho
BcrviccB tho Catholic Press has rendered to reli
gion, as also tho disinterestedness with which,
in most instances, it has been counductcd, al
though yielding to publishers and editors a very in
sufficient return for thoir labors. We oxhort tho
Cn t liol te community to cxtond to thoso publications
a moro liberal support, iu ordor that thoy may bo
enabled to become moro worthy the great causo
EDUCATION OF YOUTH.
Wo recur to tho subjoct of tho education of
youth, to which, in tho former Plenary Council, we
already directed your attention, for the purposo of
reiterating tho admonition wo then gave in regard
to tho establishment and support of Parochial
Schools, and of renewing the expression of our
conviction that religious teaching and religious
training Bhould form part of every system of school
education. Every day's cxporionco ronders it evi
dent that to dovclopo tho intellect and store it with
knowledge, while Clio heart and its affections are
left without the control of religious principle, sus
tained by religious practices, is to mistake tho
nature and object of education, as well as to pre
paro for parent and child tho most bittor disap
pointment in the future, and for society the
most disastrous results. We wish also to call
attention to a prevalent error on the subject
of tho education of youth, from which parents
of the best principios aro not always exempt.
Naturally dosiring tho advancement of their
children", in determining the education thoy will
give thom, thoy not unfroquently consult their
wishes rather than thoir moama, and the probablo
position of our children in maturo ago. Educa
tion, to bo good, need not necessarily bo either
high or ornamental, in tho studies or accomplish
ments it embraces. These things aro in thom
solvcs unobjectionable; and thoy may bo suitable
and advantageous or otherwise according to cir
cumstances. Proparo your children for the duties
of the state or condition of life they oro likely to bo
engaged in; do not exhaust your means in bestow
ing on them an education that may unfit them for
these duties. This would bo a sure eourco of dis
appointment and dissatisfaction, both for yourself
and for them. Accustom them from thoir earliest
years to habita of obedience, industry and thrift,
and deeply impress on thoir minds the groat prin
cipio that happiness and success in life, as weil as
acceptance with dod, do not BO much depend on
the station we nil as on tho lidolity with which we
discharge its dutios. Teach thom that the ground
work of true happiness must be placed in habitual
and cheerful submission of our wills to the dis
pensations of Providence, who has wisely consulted
for tho happiness of all, without, howevor, bostow
ing on all an equal sharo of tho goods of fortune.
CATHOLIC PROTECTORIES AND D?DUSTBIAL SCHOOLS.
Connected with this subject of education, is
the establishment of Protectories and Industrial
Schools for tho correction or proper training of
youth, which has of lato years attracted universal
attention. It is a melancholy fact, and a vory hu
miliating avowal for us to make, that a very large
proportion of tho idlo and vicious youth of our
principal cities aro the children of Cathou? pa
roo ta. Whether from povorty or neglect, tho igno
rance in which so many parents are involved as to
the truo naturo of education, and of thoir dutios as
Christian parents, or the associations which our
youth so easily form with thoso who encourage
thom to disregard parental admonition, certain it
ia, that a largo number of Catholic parents oither
appear to havo no idea of the sanctity of tho Chris
tian family, and of tho responsibility imposed on
them of providing for tho moral training of their
offdpring, or perform it in a very imporfoct manner.
* * * * * * * *
VOCATIONS TO THE PRIESTHOOD.
Wo continue to feel the want of zealous priests,
ia sufficient number to supply the daily increasing
necessities of our diocosos. While we aro gratified
to know that in some parts of our country tho
number of youths who offer thcmselvca for the
EclcBiBasticul state is rapidly increasing, wo are
obliged to remark, that in tho other parts, notwith
standing all tho efforts and sacrifices which havo
been made for this object, and the extraordinary
oncourageineuts which havo boen hold out to
vouthful aspirants to the ministry in our prepara
tory and theological seminaries, the number of
such as havo presented thomsolvcs and porscvored
iu thoir vocations has hitherto been lamentably
Wo continuo to have great consolation in wit
nessing the ndvauco of roligion throughout the
various Diocosos, shown in tho multiplication and
improved architectural oharactor of our Churches,
the increaso of piety in the various congregations,
and tho numerous conversions of BO many who
havo sacrificed early prejudices and overy conside
ration ot their temporal intercala aud human feel
ings at the Bhrino of Catholic Truth. Wo must,
however, in all candor, say that wo cannot include
all, or indeed the greater part of thoso who com
poso our flocks in this testimony to lidolity and
zeal. Too many of thom, including not unfro
quiiiifly mon otherwise of blamolosa livos, remain
for years estranged from tho sacraments of '?ho
Church, although thoy attend tho celebration of
tho divino mysteries, and liston to the proaohing
of God's Word with an earnestness and attention
in themselves deaorving of all praise. * * *
DANCES, PICNICS, AC.
In this connection, wo consider it to bo our duty
to warn our peoplo against those amusements
which may caaily bocomo to thom an occasion of
sin, and especially against thoso fashionable
dances, which, as at proaont carried on, aro re
volting to ovory fooling of delicacy and proprioty,
and aro fraught with the greatest danger to morals.
Wo would also warn them most solemnly against
tho groat abuses which havo sprung np in tho mat
ter of fairs, excursions and picnics, in which, as
too often conducted, tho namo of charity ia mado
to cover up a multitude of eins. Wo forbid all
Catholics having anything to do with thom, except
when managed in accordance with tho regulations
of tho Ordinary, and undor tho immediate supor
visi?n-of thoir rospectivo pastora.
Wo oxhortour vcnorablo brethren of tho clorgy,
who sharo our caros and responsibilities, to uurc
mittiug zeal in tho great work to which thoy havo
THE EMANCIPATED SLAVES.
Wo must nil fcol, beloved brethren, that in some
manum- a now and most oxtensivo field of charity
and dovotodnosa has boon opened to us, by the
emancipation of tho immense slavo population of
tho South. Wo could hove wishod that, in accord
ance with tho action of tho Catii olio Church in past
agos, in regard to tho serfa of Europe, a moro
, gradual system of emancipation could have been
adopted, BO that thoy might have been in somo
mensuro bettor prepared to mako a bettor oso of
thoir freedom than thoy aro llkoly to do now. Still
tho otila which must neoossarily attend upon Uio
iU-.i-en libbratlon of BO largo a multitude, with
tho> poculiar dispositions and .'noun, only make
the appoal to our Christian chaxity and zeal, pre
sen ted by their forlorn condition, tho moro forciblo
Wo urgo upon thq clorgy and pcoplo of our chargo
tho most genoroiiB co-operation with tho plaiiB
which may bo adopted by tho Bishqpa of tho Dio
COBO in which they are, to cxtontl to thom that
Christian oducation and moralrostraint which thoy
so much stand in need of. Our only rogrot in re
gard to this matter is, that our moans and oppor
tunity of spreading over thom tho protecting and
halutary iuiluencca of our Holy Iloligiou uro so
* * * * * * *
THE SISTERS OF CnAIUTV.
Wo discharge a gratoful duty, in rendering a
public testimony lo tlio virtue and heroism of theso
Christian Virgins; whose lives shed tho good odor
of Christ in ovcry place, and whono duvotcducHs
and Bpirit of self-sacrifice have, more perhaps titan
any other cause, contributed to effect a favorable
change iu tho minds ol' thousands estranged from
our faith. To each of thom, however, wo feel im
pelled to address the words Bpokcn to tho angel of
tho Church of Philadelphia: "Hold fa?t that which
thou hast, that no one lake thy crown."
* * * * * * * * * *
Wo havo taken advantage of tho opportunity of
tho assembling of BO largo a number ol' Bishops
from overy part of our vast country, to enact such
decrees as will tend to promoto uniformity of dis
ciplino and practico among us. aud to do away with
such imperfect observance of tlio rites and approved
ceremonies of tho Church, as may havo boen made
necossary by tho circumstances of past times, but
which no length of prescription can over cons?
crate, and thus to give tho services of our. religion
that beauty and dignity which belongs to them, nud
for which wo should all be so zealous.
