Historians tell us she was born mear

453. Hot father was a Prlnoe of

established the famous convent of
Klldare. St. nrijddl traveled all over
Ireland, les tabling in a; nomvemte and
caring for the ipoor, the homeless
and the afflicted. After life of
piety and charity St. B rigid died on
February 1, 623, and was buried at

Irish women have ever Imitated
the virtues f St. Brigld, though
their efforts may have been along
different lines. In more recent
times one reads of Nano Nagle, the
foundress of the Presentation order.
She was born In County Cork, the
daughter of Garrett Nagle, a man of
property. Nano was' educated in
Tarls. Uppm her return her thoughts
were turned to the lamentable condi
tion of tli poor Irish Catholic chil
dren, deprived under the penal laws
of all chances of education. In 1763
she established schools la Dublin
and Cork at her own erpense. In
1771, at her Instance a house for the
reception of the nuns of the
Ursuline order was erected tn Cork.
Bo strong was the prejudice against
them among the dominant class that
for many years except In he privacy
if their convent these nuns had to
wear secular dress. Miss . Nagle
then organized a band of Irlstt women
Who agreed to give themselves solely
to the poor peiple of Ireland. They
were known as Slstera of the Pre
sentation. Mother Nagle died In
1784. andi her community was not
given recognition and sanction until
1791, when Pipe Plus VI. co mm emded
The then reigning Pope gave the
Sisters of the Presentation authority
to establish houses in Cork and else
where in Ireland "loir the T"eiption
of virgins whose duty it would be to
Instruct, children in the rudiments
of faith and morals; to teach them
different works -peculiar to their sex,
and to vlnlt sick women in pubtlc
Infirmaries and help them in their
necessities." At this time the Pre
sentation order has representative
houses iu Ireland, England, Aus
ralia and Amerlra.
Mary Catherine McAuley, fouiad-
rtss of the Ordvr of Mercy, was
born 1n the County Dublin in 1779.
Her parents dial while she was
n!ung, and the future nun was
brought up by .Protestants. Sh
never wavered in htr faith and de
votion. Hefore many years she had
the satisfaction of neeing her foster
parents devout member of the Cath
olic church. Her foster father. John
0'CaHa.ghan. left her quite a for
tune, and she determined to devote
It to worffn of mercy. In 1827 she
established in Dublin a home for tUe
education and care of young women
and for the visitation of the sick and
digressed. In 1831, after Mother
McAuley ajid two of her companions
had complctciJi a novitiate of fifteen
months, they made vows of poverty,
chastity and obedience. Archbishop
Murray canonlcally appointed Cath
erine McAuley -Mother Superior. In
1863 therwere 154 convents under
the rule of the mother bouse.
One of her Mographers, Dr. It. B.
CTIlrien, of Dublin, has written of
her: "The character of Catherine
McAuley Is the most precious legacy
that her children can inherit from
her. Its chief strength Seems to lie
in Its simplicity. What is btlll uione

Many Catholics practice the devo
tion of the Way of the Cross during
lpnt, yet comparatively few know
th origin nd hltttCTy of this pious
custom. The Stations, as they are
cjommonly called, are a series of
images or paintings representing dif
ferent events in the passion and
death of our IxrJ. and Saviour Jesus
Christ. These, Stations are ranged
around on both sides of the main
altar. In CathoHc countries they are
often ' found in th open lr and
akung roads leading to shrines or
tome church standing on a hill.
' There are fourteen of these -stations.
The first shows Ptliite in the
sot of d.'llverylng Christ to the Jews."
Pilate ts represented as washing his
hands of the matter. Next we see
our Saviour, reeclvtng his cross In
the third Bcene Jemis falls the first
time. Tho meeting between Jesus
and his blessed mother. Is shown In
the fourth station. In thoext. we
se Simon, of Cyrene, forced to help
Christ carry hi cross. In the sixth
scene Veronica Is shown wiping the
face of the brulsol and bleeding
Ravlur. In the eevemth of th serle
the- Rodeomer falls the second time
under his burden. Next He Is seen
admonishing the women of Jeru
salem "Weep not for me. hut for
your children and your children's
The third fall under the weight of
the 'crass is depicted in the 'ninth
station.' In the- next picture we see
Him stripped of his garments while
his persecutors are casting lots for
them. The eleventh picture shows
his crucifixion. His death is shown
In the twelfth. In the thirteenth we
see hta body removed from the cross,
and in the fourteenth and last sta
tion his entombment is depleted.
In the diocese of Vienna, Austria,
the number of etatlkns was reduced
to eleven at the close of the eigh
teenth century. In other places a
fifteenth station has been added, the
finding of the cross of Helena. These
changes have never been authorized.
The devotUm, of the Way ef the
Cross began in the Franciscan or
der. The Franciscans are the
guardians of the holy places in
Jerusalem, and these stations are in
tended as a help to making in spirit
a pilgrimage to the scene of Christ's
sufferings aind death. Pope Inno
cent XII. in 1C94, authentically in
terpreting a brief mf his predecessor,
Inuocent XI. In 1686, declared that
the indulgences granted for devoutly
visiting certain holy places in Pales
tine could be gained by all Fran
ciscans and by all affiliated to the
order if they made the- Way of the
Cross devoutly. ,
In 1 726 Pope Benedict XIII. ex
tended tbt'F Indulgences to all the
faithful, and Clement XII. in 1731
permitted persons to gain the in
dulgences at stations which were not
in Franciscan churches, provided
they were erectel by a Franciscan
with the sanction of the Ordinary.
At present, and particularly In Eng
land, the connection between the
stations and Franciscans is almost
entirely lost night of. Here in
America our churches all have the
stationie, and when they are erected
it is customary to call upon a Fran
cUcan to conduct the enercises.
It is a beautiful devotion and one
that teaches humility and charity.
Every Friday evening in Lent the
priest and his acolytes lead the falth
f m! in the footsteps of our B leased
Saviour from the tribunal of Pilate
to the tomb. At every stop there is
food for meditation. Some Catholics
nmke the stations every morning be
fore or after mass' and continue the
practice the whole , year. These
Catholics are trying in deel as in
word to follow the Divine Master.

Wendell Phillips has been written
about and featured In many ways,
but Dr. Rears has lately published
a very fine blograph of the' great
orator and original abolitionist,
which makes exceedingly interesting
reading on account of the many
anecdotes scattered here and there
through the book. The great orator
was on one occasion lecturing in
Ohio, and while on a railroad jour
ney, going to keep one of his ap
pointments, be met in the car a
crowd of clergy returning from some
sort of a convention. One of the
mlnltaers felt called upon to ap
proach Mr. Phillips and asked hlui:
"Are you Mr. I'hillipsT" "I am,
sir." "Are you trying to free the
niggers!" '"Yes, sir: I am an
abolitionist." "Well, why do you
preach your doctrines up here? Why
don't you go over Into Kentucky?"
"Kxcuse nie, are you a preacher?"
"I am, sir." "Are you trying to save
souls from bell?" -"Yes, sir; that's
my business." "Well, why don't
you go there?"The assailant hurried
