TEB BODY OP ST. FRANCIS XAVIR PFOUND
UNCOORUPTED AND UNCRANGED, AT
THE EICUNT ZXAMINATION IN GOA.
SssUmtasy of an Eye Witass, Bishop Leo Meurin,
of the Society of Jesus.
QLAPRIC ACOOUUT OP THZ OPENING OF THE
TOMB AND COFFIN OF THE APOSTLE
OP THE INDIES AT GOA.
N. T. Catholic Review.
Unnoticed by the Protestant press of
Europe sand America, almost unnoticed by
the Catholie Press, the ancient town of
Goa, ones the mistress of the East, was
durang the early part of last month the
ensoe of the revelation once more to public
knowledge, of the astounding miracle of
the preservation incorrupt of the body of
Bt.,Fianies Xavier, who, after death, was
Sthuown into a veasel of unalacked lime;
"then buried in moist earth, but whose
body, nevertheless, "was not allowed to
see urruption." Three times since itAfinal
burial in GBo, the Portaguese capital of the
East, the Saint's tomb had been opened.
The last of these oceeslons was on Decem
ber 38, 1878, the Feast of St. Franois
navier. The redalt of the examination of
the relile is told in the following letter by
Bishop Leo Meaurio, 8 J., Vicar Apostolic
of Bombay, in a letter to a brother Jesuit.
We owe this letter as well as our extract
from the pastoral of the Archbishop of
Goa, to our excellent Oriental friends of
the Catholio Examiner, whose files also
furnishaus with an account of a similar ex
amination In 1859, from the pen of Bishop
Canoe. But for this we cannot find space
to-day. Bishop Meurin, S J., writes:
I hasten to fulfill the most cheerful duty of
givingyou an account of my pilgrimage tothe
shrlie of oar gloriote brother, the Apostle of
the Orient, St. Francis Xavier, whose body,
miraculously preserved up to this day, has just
been exposed to the admiration and veneration
of the faithful. I do not intend to speak of the
past, of the travels, labors, virtues, and mira
ales of our Saint. nor of his death on the 21 of
December, 1552, on the island of Saucian, the
door of China, which death closed to his in
satiable thirst for souls. I only wish to call to
your memory the following historical facts:
that his body was placed in
A COFFIN FILLED WITH UNSLACKED LIME,
for the purpose of accelerating decomposition,
so that the bones might be ready to be removed
at the time of the return of the Portuguese to
Malaccs; that on re-opening the ocffia on the
17th of February, 1553, more than two months
after the burial, the body was found nooor
rapted, and, on an incision being made in the
thigh, fresh blood issued copiously from it, a
fact which repeated itself when, on the 23d of
March of the same vear, the body was hurt
whilst being placed in a narrow vault outside
of the Church of Our Lady of Malaooa; that,
when taken out from that humid resting place.
one day of the following August, it was found
as fresh as before and diffuacig a aweet fra
grance, but the face was irjurei by a falling
sharp stone; that it was taken to Goa. and
placed, on the 15th of March, 1554. in the
Churoh of St. Paul, of which now only the fa
eade remains, whence it wes removed in 1560
to the Chapel of 8S. Thomas, to the College of
St. Paul, and then to the professed-house of
the Bom Jeans; that on the 3d of November,
1614, his right arm was out off by order of Paul
V., who wished to possess the arm that had
built up the Church of the Orient, on which
BLOOD 18SUED AGAIN COPIOUSLY FROM THE
the arm was taken to Portugal; and thence to
Rome. where I had the great consolation to see
it 4l,9189, in the Church del Geen. The body,
whioh from that time began to shrivel. was
translated in 1655 to the Church Bom Jeasus,
where it has been kept up to this time, and
twice exposed to the view and veneration of
the Christian people. first from the Sth till the
12th of February. 1782, and then from the 3d
December, 18:9, tilk the 8th of January, 186t0.
It is not here the place to recount the miracles
whblh happened on all the oecesione mention
ed; they have been duly examined, and, when
found to have evidently been the work of God,
have been declared as such by the competent
eccleseastical authority. At the invitation of
his Grace Dom Ayres d'Oroellas e Vasconcel
los, the present zsalone and virtoous Arohbis
hop of Goe, I repaired to Goa together with
their Lordbships Bishop Borj-an of Jaffna, and
Bishop Barbero of Aydrabad, the Very Rsv.
Fathers Pagani, Pro-Vicar Apostolio of Mange
lore, and Colgan, Vicar General of Madras. and
a number of our clerical companions, leaving
Bombay on the 29th November at ten a. m., in
the steamer Alabarma, chartered and fited up
for the Bombay pilgrims, and reaching Goa on
the following day at ten a. m. Having anchor
ed before Nova Goa or Panjim, the Governor's
barge, manned with fouiteen men in their

an hour's time to Goa Velha, the city of roins,

Archbishop, contiguous to the Cathedral, a
stately building, sufficiently put in repair to be

whom his amiable hospitality calls to that

are st the same time guardians of the still ex

him whose body dwells there preserved from
corruption by God's power, and preaches with
open lips to all who come to receive from the
sight of an evident miracle a confirmation of
their faith, consolation in their hearts, and,
perhaps, relief from bodily ailments ? Being
received by the Arohbishop with truly brother
]7 love, we were lodged, as many as possible,
in his palace, the others finding a resting-plae
in the cells of the old convent of St. Monica,
aprep d for the occasion. On the three first
deys of December we were able to say Mass at
the shrine of St. Franols, In presenoe of the
Wbdy still closed in the beautiful chest, but
elready lowered, so aa to be conveniently taken
to the magnifdoent baldaohin prepared for it in
the transept of the churoh. Permit me to re

experienoee, and the host of thoughts that
crosa the mind on an oonesson like this. To

TO SAT MUCH IS TO SAY TOO LITTLE.

rr was A MOVING AND IMPOSING IGTHT
when we four bishops, In mitre and cope, lifted
nup the cover that hid the Saint'ebody, a stand
ig miracle, fromn the view of the faithful, and
thes embibited it to the eager eyes and hearts
of the thoesands that thronged the ohurch in
the nave below and in the galleries above. I
did not observe the multitude; I stood for a
long time geaing at the head, the hand, the
far., for they alone were unoovered, a riob
hasuble, embroidered with gold and pearls,
covering the rest of the body. I looked at
him, as others did three centries ago, and
CONVINCED THAT THIS WAS THE SAME BODY,
once the tabernacle of that noble and holy
soul, chosen by God for the salvation of mil
lions and millions of soule. I kissed most rev.
erently the feet of him that preached the Goes
poel of peace and was then carried away from
the privileged place I ooeuped, by the order
of the day, whloh was to grant to as many
faithful as possible the consolation of seeing
God's marvel in His Saint. In the evening, on
that and on the four following days, the Arch
bishop took us again to the body of the Salnt,
in a private manner, when we had fall leisure
to pour out our prayers for ourselves and for
those in our charge, and to examine most close
ly the body in its present statse. We clearly
found the statements oorrobosated, which the
historians made about the injuries the body
had received on the aforymentioned occa
sione. I was allowed to lift up the right foot,
DY NO MEANS OF AN ENTEUSIASTIC FRAME OF
to inspect it leisurely from all sides; the same
I did with the hand and the head. The right
foot was quite complete and intact: the heel,
the sle, the toes, the nails, the muscles and
tendons beneath the skin, everything in per
feet order and well preserved, though harden
ed, shriveled, and of a brownish color. The
left foot I found somewhat injored; the second
toe hanging broken, the three smaller ones
were missing, and the skin of the heel was in
some parts detached, . et very strongly coherent
like the strongest leather. The right cheek
and the tip of the nose appeared injured, but
the eyes were fall and notat all sunk in, so, too,
the abdomen, as the physician told me, who
had examined the body. The left hand showed
in like manner the sinews beneath the skin,
and the fiogers with the nails in perfect pre
servation. N'owhere any signs of decaoy! Italies

ground burial-place: that not even the riscera
have been taken out, but are still discernable,
as the offiuial inquiry made by the physicians
assures us, and that aooording to the laws of
nature, and their invariable action, in every
other ies-anoe of a dead body, the body of the

it is, I wish to know who will gainsay that
A MIRACLE OF THE FIRST ORDER
attribored to no other power than the divine,
which alone can inhibit the laws of natnre,and
suspend their action for some higher porpose.
The purpose of God's working this undeniable
miracle is to prove the sanctity of His servant
and the veracity of his teaching. It is impos
sible for GOd to confirm by evident miracles a
false doctrine. Toe religion taught by St.
Francis XSvier is therefore a divine religion.
It is the only one that ever has been confirmed
by the visible finger of God, by miracles which
NEITHER NATURENOR ANGELS, NOR DEVILS
are able to perform by their own innate powers.
The poor Goanese have to thank the Portuguese
nation for very little beside the precious gift
of that holy faith, which, however, sanflfes to
fill their hearts even now with grateful attachb
ment to a Gjvernment from which they receive
and expect nothing, except now and then a
good shepherd and the permission to see the
body of their apostle and patron. Possessing
in their Catholic religion an infallible guide
to heaven, they can afford to ignore the serff
ings of those who, in their ignorance and wilful
prejudice, are unable to discern the supernatu
ral from the natural, and

ST. JARLATH'8, TUAM, JAnuary 4
Sir-It is high time that a termination be
put to the dieheartaningdivisions that prevail
in the ranks of the Irish popular representa
tives in the British Hoose of Parliament. The
evils of discord, existing for some time past,
have been aggravated by recent manifestations
as senseless as the worst enemies of Ireland
could desire. The nation heartily laments the
existence of suoh dissensions, and will suffer
no longer the continuance of a disorder that
paralzzns the best energies of all for the com
mon benefit of their nativeland.
Without attempting to cffer an opinion as to
the correctness of the views of the contending
parties, it may be affirmed that the moment
has arrived for united and energetic action on
the part of all. Li:t the errores of the past be
generousnely forgiven and forgotten, and let the
opening year ushber in the dawn of a brighter
era, dispelling forever the present dark anod
dreary prospects of our down-trodden people.
It is to be hoped and expected that this first
month of the new year shall witness in the
rapital of our ooontry an assembly of the
faithful, devoted and experienced sons of Ire
land, judiciously framing wise and effiient
rules for the fuotore direction of our members
of Parliament, regardless of the interests of
the contending patties of the British nation
Let the existence of Home Rule be vigorously
insisted upon. Let unity of action among the
members, as far as posaible, be ensured by
summoning them in due time for seasonable
deliberation in London, whenever great mes
sares for the benefit of Ireland or of the British
dominions are about being introdooed into
Parliament, as well as during the progrees of
sach measures through both Houses. Let the
deliberations of the consulting assembly in
London be duly submitted from time to time,
by means of the press, to the discriminating
appreolation of the Irish people, who are never
wanting in distinguishing between their real
and fctitious friends, ans who will not fail to
consign t3 suitable retirement those members
who prove themselves more interested for the
well being of G-eat Britain or their own, than

His Greeks and Romans talk about cannoers
and pistols, and his Italian clowns are thor

makes Spartan notables caronse and drink

speaks of the nighit' still Sabbath ; D'Urfey's

Jones, describing a battle in his poem," The
Lost Army," says:
" Delay and doubt did more that hoer
Than bayonet charge or carnage shower;"
and some lines further on pictures his hero
"All worn with wounds, when day wuas low.
With severed sword and sahatterd shield;"
thus making hie battle rather a trial of the
respective powers of ancient and modern
weapons than a conflict between equqlly armed
foes. Mr. Thackeray perpetrates a nice little
anachronism in "The Newcomee" when he
makes Clive, in a letter dated 183-, quoting an
Academy exhibition critique, ask: "Why have
we no picture of the sovereign and her augnet
consort from Smee's brush f"-the author, in
his anxiety to compliment the artist, forget

A bull in a china shop is scarcely more out

and continued to cherish relatioce of amity
with the rest of mankind. Much simpler was
the blaunder of an English oflizer, during the
Indian mutiny, who informed the public,
through the Timnes that, thanks to the prompt
measurs of Col. Edwards, the Sepoys at Fort
Machison "were all unarmed and taken aback
and, being called upor, laid down their arms."
There was nothing very astonishing in an Irish
naperstatiog that Robespiere "left no children
behind him, except a brother, who was killed
at the same time ;" bat it was startling to have
an English journal assure as that her majesty
Queen Victoria was "the last person to wear
another man's crown."
A single illchosen word often snffioes, by
the suggestion of incongruous ideas, to render

When the news of Captain Cook's death at
Owhyhee came to England, the poetasters, of
course, bhastened to improve the occasion, and
one of the results of their enthusiasm was a

an opening sufficient to upset the gravity of
the great navigator's dearest friend.
Addison lays it down as a maxim, that when
a nation abounds in physicians it grows thin
