The lit. Rev. Dr. Ferguson Tells of
Mission Work Done in
"Christ church presented a most in-
teresting sight yesterday afternoon
when at *". o'clock a grand rally of
the Episcopal Sunday schools was
held within its walls. Eighteen Sun-
day schools were represented by
nearly 1,200 children. The schools
were assigned to certain sections
marked not only by the banner of the
school, but by a large card bearing
the name of the school.
The service was the form of even-
ing prayer, and the singing of the
children, immense In volume and
sweet in tone, was lead by the regu
lar vested choir of the church. The
first address of the afternoon was a
short welcome by Bishop Gilbert,
who said that it was not his after-
noon to talk as he could be heard at
any time, but there were men here
who could not be heard at any time.
Bishop Gilbert then introduced Rt.
Rev. Bishop Rulison, of Central
Pennsylvania, who spoke of the won-
derful interest Christ showed for lit-
tle folks, for lie had said more beau-
tiful things to children than He ever
said to the older people. Bishop
- Rulison had long known Bishop Gil-
bert, and spoke to the children of i
- the enthusiasm which the latter had j
shown in the way of Sunday school j
work. Bishop Rulison advised the
children to make a crusade, as did
the crusaders of old, not to rescue a
tomb in the Holy Land, but carry
the .work .cf the Sunday school into
every part of their land. "Be en-
thusiastic in your work," said he.
"Go at it as though you intended to
. make a success of it. Help your bish- |
op and your rector in their work. !
The J* bo need your help, and you j
can do a work which they cannot ]
Bishop Gilbert then introduced Rt. j
Rev. Dr. Furguson, of Cape Palmas, j
Africa. Bislfop Ferguson spoke of j
the natural beauties of Africa, its i
bright trees, beautiful birds, men
-7 keys and pretty animals. Bishop '
Ferguson spoke of the darkness of
" heathendom: '
- , "Man, alone/ said the bishop, "is I
■the only animal, is the only creature, j
which does not praise God, for the ;
birds and the beauties of the coun-
try do." He spoke at some length
upon the work in his far-off diocese,
how the children acted and looked,
and described a grand rally of the
7 Sunday school 'in distant Cape Pal-
mas. Bishop Furguson then pre-
sented a little native boy, Tabo
(Tanbo), who sang a number of |
songs and recited a number of ver- !
ses in his native language. This very j
interesting incident delighted the I
children very much. Tabo is very j
little and very black, but a very j
sharp boy, and is a valuable aid to
the good bishop of Palmas in telling \
in a most effective manner the story. j

DEATH OP A. D. TIMER MAX.
Popular Youi?ii .Man Cut Dawn in
Albert D. Timerman, cashier of the
St. Paul Fire and Marine In-
surance company, a successful and
esteemed young business man, died
yesterday morning at the residence
of his father-in-law, L. J. Gates,
573 Marshall avenue. Mr. Timerman
was born thirty years ago in Wa-
basha county, of this state, and he
had resided in St. Paul since child-
hood. His father, William S. Tim-
erman, is well known as the man-
ager of the St. Paul Warehouse and
Elevator company. A brother of the
deceased is a partner in the firm of
Nye, Jenks & Co., of Minneapolis,
and one of his sisters is the wife of
John Riheldaffer, formerly superin
tendent of local grain elevators for
the Great Northern railroad.
Albert Timerman was five years in
the service of the Merchants' Na
tional bank. For the past three
years he has been cashier of the St.
Paul Fire and Marine Insurance
company. He was a member of the
Society of the Sons «f the Revolu
tion. His character was without re-
proach, his friends numerous among
the city's best citizens.
In 1892 Mr. Timerman married Miss
Florence, daughter of Lewis J. Gates.
The widow is left with a child two
years of age.
Mr. Timerman had been ill with a
malady of the liver- since last. June.
About two days ago he left his former,
residence, 463 Selby avenue, and re-
moved temporarily to his father-in-
law's house, intending to start to Mon-

advertisement in a newspaper for a
boy of his description, and he was

CHURCH OF THE MESSIAH.
Rector of Grace Church, Hen
York, Delivers a Sermon.
Rev. William H. Huntington, rector
of Grace church, New York, preached
at the Church of the Messiah yester
day morning-. Special music had been
prepared for the occasion by the vest-
ed girls' choir, including several solo
numbers. Preceding the sermon the
rite of baptism was administered by
Rev. C. E. Haupt Rev. Huntington
chose- for his text Psalms xxiii., 3: "Ho
restoreth my soul and leadeth me in
the paths of righteousness for His
name's sake." He said, in part:
"These are familial* words; in fact,
so familiar that we often lose sight of
their significance. The soul, embody
ing all these, is within us, often needs
and desires restoration. In this con
nection, it is proper for us to inquire:
'What is restoration?' It is the re-
placing or putting back that which has
been displaced. When sin entered the
world, this restoration became a
means of escaping its penalties.
Christ's parables of 'The Lost Sheep,'
•The Prodigal Son' and 'The Lost
Piece of Money' are all typical of this
process. They show its necessity and
bring out boldly the contrasts in' con-
I ditions existing before and after it has
| been invoked. Often those professing
| Christianity become discouraged; they
i go through their devotions in a me
chanical manner, and, seemingly, de-
rive no comfort from their faith. It is
at such times that the song of David
gives us the blessed assurance, 'He
restoreth my soul.' * When we-" are
physically ill we seek out a physician
and put our case before him In* all its
details and we are again restored to
health. It is the same way in cases
of spiritual Illness. We must seek
counsel of the Great Physician, and
there will be no- doubt about a restora
tion. When we refuse this means we
forget about God's loss. We are ac
i customed to only consider our own
feelings in the matter. I bear in mind
the metaphysical definition of God, a
! being incapable of suffering loss or
sorrow; but when the Bible represents
God as grieving over the loss of a
soul, it is not an idle statement. It is
the expression of the attributes of a
personal God, according to human con- !
ception. 'He leadeth me in the paths
of righteousness for His name's sake.*
"To those who desire restoration
comes this sweet declaration. By it
we are assured of a leader along the
highways of life ; and net only a lead-
er, but one who will cheer us when we
faint, and bind our wounds when we
fall." In conclusion, the speaker said:
"If God could restore the soul of the
shepherd boy of Bethlehem He can
and will perform the same blessed
service for you."
HEARD BISHOP PARET.
Morning; Sermon at Christ ChnrcU
Delivered by Him.
At Christ church, yesterday morn-
ing, a large congregation assembled
to hear Bishop Paret, of Maryland,
one of the most noted men of the
house of bishops. The chancel was
well filled with visiting clergymen, who
assisted Dr. Andrews, the rector of
Christ church, in the service. The
musical part of the service was as it
has long been at that place of wor
ship, excellent, and was rendered by
a large vested choir of men and boys.
Bishop Paret said in part: "At a
time like this when the church is con
sidering great questions, I njight take
up one of them, and discuss it this
morning, but I prefer to leave such.
j questions to our week day life, so
j this morning I will speak to you of !
Christ. In talking of this great char- I
acter as He went up ' and down the
Holy land, so called because He lived
and worked there, the work which He
did is divided into two classes, bodily
mercy and spiritual instruction. Every
act of bodily mercy which He did was
closely allied to spiritual instruction,
and almost invariably led to this.
"I am to speak this morning of an
act of bodily mercy, the feeding of
the multitude, and, while it is of this
class, yet it is rich in spiritual instruc
tion. In this we are told that Christ
fed 5,000, yet I think that there were
twice that many, for the New Testa
ment writers tell us that there were
;">.OCO men. besides women and children.
Tou will remember that in this East
ern country families were large, and
It is not Improbable that there were
more than double the 5,000 mentioned.
This vast congregation had been wait-
ing on the Master and the disciples fer
three days, and they were badly in
need of bodily nourishment, and it Is
not strange the disciples called the at
tention of the Master to the people.
This j was not necessary, for Christ
bad known their condition, and was
more ready to aid them than they were
to receive his aid. Then notice this
crowd. It was a promiscuous follow
ing gathered there because of the
fame of a man who had made the
blind to see, the lame to walk and
had raised the dead. They did not fol
low Him because they believed in His
work. So they did not deserve Christ's
aid, but do we ever deserve the bless-
ings which God gives us day by day.'
"But return to the feeding of the
multitude. First, we are told that the
vast company was seated in ranks
on the green grass in companies, and
they were fed. In this seating of
this company we have, I think, a fine
illustration of the church organiza
tion. Note t_,at Christ 'asked a bless
ing on the f cod, and, friends, note that
this custom was universal, but in this as*
of hurry, of railroads, telegraphs, tela- '
phones and rush of business cares, how
many of us forget to do this. Don't
forget it; It Is a beautiful custom.*'- '■
7 .These people were fed by- the dis
ciples, | those disciples, with all their
varied chaia'cteristlcs, and. yet every
man In the vast assembly was eyital-'
: ly ' well served, for the twelve wore
only carriers, and it was Christ '-who
• was feeding them. So. dear ' friends,
in this spiritual life, remember, tjfjqt.iho
'.matter who the bearer of the gospel
Is, to you he is of Christ, and that
your "rector or your bishop is Un".' serv-
ant of Christ, bearing to you his/dft

After the regular service of evening-
prayer had been said and sung. Bishop
Sessums took his place In the pulpit'
and delivered one of the most eloquent
and able sermons which has been heard
in St. Paul this season. The lamented
Bishop Phillips Brooks was considered
one of the most rapid talkers who was
ever heard in the American pulpit, of
any denomination, but he has a notable
successor In the young and brilliant
talker from Louisiana, who is' almost
the despair of the most accomplished
stenographer, for he is never at a loss
for a second for an idea nor for a
varied and beautiful vocabulary in
which to express his ideas. Bishop
Sessums' theme last night was "The
Goodness of the Gospel; Its Power to
Meet the Needs of Plan's Life." and
his text was "All things are possible
to him that believeth. Lord, I believe,
help thou mine unbelief." _t
Bishop Sessums said in part: "These
words are those of a sorrow-stricken
father, who came to our Lord as he
came from the Mount of Transfigura
tion. The man, as he came to Christ,
brought a child from whom the dis
ciples had not been able to cast out
the demon which had torn and lashed
him to fury. When he came to Christ
and asked that his child be cured,
Christ said: 'All things are possible .
to him that believeth,' and the agoniz- :
ed father replied: 'Lord, I believe, help
thou my unbelief.' This man was not
bothered by those discussions of doc-
trine and creeds, but he knew and be-
lieved in the divinity of Christ. This is
the wail and woe that the world sends
up to the grand, beautiful, compas
sionate Christ Who stands ever ready
to help them. It is all well enough for
the world to be satisfied regarding the
philosophy cf Christ's coming, and to ;
speculate on points of doctrine,, but
they little avail when we arc in trouble
and are calling for .help which must
come from on high.

"There are stages of faith in the
church. The Intellectual stage, which
found expression in the inquiry 'Whom
say ye that I am'— then the age of
settling these great questions by re-
lieving the suffering of the world.
These «ages are represented in this
man who had tried in his efforts to
relieve his child. This man longed for
some power he could not find, and he
came doubtfully to Christ. He sought
this power which' must bring life and
happiness of the world, and today
men are seeking for this, for they do
net find in place. - It. is the goodness
of the gospel is what we doubt. It is
not the deductions of science that
trouble the world today. Men in their
scientific research find facts which we
deny in this conclusion. They come
to because they see c* cry where around
them those things which they believe
the goodness of the gospel should over-
come.- The religion of the Nazarene is
not the religion of an unseen God. It
is seen most of all in the undeniable
Gsd of man, who wrought in the af-
fairs of the world's history. We need
to surrender the Idea of a ghostly God,
for we are to worship a visible God,
who is manifested in the Divine God,
and in the members of Christ's mem-
bers. Christianity is not a* question
of the divinity of Christ, but that of
a Chrlstly God. Our religion is em-
bodied, rising from what it does not
know to what it does. It is the. ever
flowing of the supply of our human
experiences. These longings of our
spirits after God are the deathless as-
sertion of our immortality.

grand demonstration of God of the
triumph of mind over matter. That
sort of criticism which requires physi
cal proof deadens progress. Our Lord

Sermon hy Hi.shop Arthur Hall, of
,r '. ...
Rt. Rev. Arthur Hall, D. D., bishop
of Vermont, occupied the pulpit of St.
Paul's church last evening. After the
beautiful choral service he spoke to a
crowded church from Nehemiah vlll.,8:
"So they read in the book of the law of
God distinctly and gave the sense and
caused them to understand the rea-
son." ' 7. . 7*77* '•■77 .- '■■* -.
Bishop Hall is a man of good pres
ence and a distinct and logical speak-
I er. Although he used manuscript, he
j did not read his sermon, but orated it.
His gestures are impressive acid well
He spoke of the authority of the
church to teach and said that the Bllile,''
apart from the divinity which pervad-
ed it, was but valuable as the work 'of
a number of holy and earnest men.
He said: "Let us beware of bibleola- -
try, let us not exalt the Bible above its"
divine irispirer; before the Old Testa-
ment were Moses and the prophets, '
and before the New Testament were "
Christ and His apostles. The Roman
church goes to one extreme In ignor-
Ing the Bible and the Protestant to the
other in deifying it. The church get's
Its authority to teach from Christ and
His apostles. He did not give to each :
individual the right to teach, He gave
it to His church. .A."
"When will the world learn that tHe
Bible Is not the world's book but trie :
church's. _ Private interpretation tends ;
to chaos. Anyone with a message
which purports to come from God, Will
surely have an audience, no matter
how new the theme may be; the Mor
mons, Moody and Father Ignatius each
have their following." '-.'■'' '" '
Then -the bishop spoke of the neces
sity of the preacher bringing home a
truth to the individual hearer, and •of
the charity which should pervade, the
Christian body. No one, he said, has
a right to be a Christian minister just
to save his own soul.
ELOQUENT SERMON*. ' •- ;
Rl. Rev. J. I". Gtttlor at SI. Paul's
Owing to a slight illness Rt. Rev.
William B. McLaren, D. D., D. C. L.,
bishop of Chicago, was unable to •
fulfill his engagement to preach at
St. Paul's church yesterday morn-
ing. but an able substitute . waa
; found in the person of Rt. Rev. T. F. j
Gailor, D. D., assistant bishop of
Tennessee. v*-' .*' .';:!t i
Rev. Gailor delivered an eloquent
as well as an extremely practical
sermon from the text contained in
the epistle of Paul to the Hebrews,
• 11., 1:' "There-fore we ought to give
the most earnest heed to the things
which we have heard, lest ait. any
time we should let them slip." He ex-
plained how St. Paul when he spoke
these words bad .been V speaking of
the fullness of the gospel in com-
parison to the insufficiency of the
law. "The keynote to 'the whole
epistle," said he. "Is that active de-
preciation of. the words' of Christ is
not the only way of losing. hold on
the gospel of- Jesus -Christ.
"In the apostle's mind the life of
man is an ocean on which we have
embarked for a perilous and temp-
estous tide. But there ls no chart to
steer by, a light to guide us from
rocks and quicksands, as well as a
never-failing pilot provided for those
• who wish to journey in safety. But
people will not use the means pro-
vided. They prefer to go on resting
on their oars, idly drifting with the
current. There appears," to be sort
of a delirious exultation. in this drift-
ing along, enjoying the ever-chang-
ing scenes, but there is sure to come
a time, when the darkening clouds,
the red anger of the sky and the
hoarse cry of the tempest warn the
drifting mariner when it is too late
that the time of reckoning is at hand.
"There is only, one. alternative-
Christ or darkness. This is an inevi-
table, indisputable fact, witnessed by
thousands of men, that the blood of
Christ alone cleanse th from all sin."
He likened a person without Christ
to a tree stripped of its bark, which
for a brief season is still able to put
forth) green boughs and appear to
flourish, but which gradually loses its
strength and action, and ultimately
dies, withered and neglected. "It is
so easy to drift," he continued; "so
easy for doubt to creep Into a man's
life and his actions assume simply a
moral instead of' a religious basis.
Doubt begins with tbe neglect of ordi-
nary devotions; tho neglect of ordinary
reverences the allowing business and

"One of the greatest drifts of today
Is the fascination with the power and
glory of the .present era. There is a
sunny optimism in the air. All the
dark, unpleasant or unwelcome truths
of the gospel are spirited and hidden
away in the background by some new
hypothesis of civilization. A man will
go drifting and dreaming on In this
new belief until he suddenly awakes
to find a.il the principles of Christian-
ity far behind him. His former spirit-
ual fervor has become a mere intel-
lectual fantasy. He is a changed man,
but he does not know it. The word
drifting docs not express everything
that is based on evil desire. It refers
more particularly to 'those who are
listless, have no ambition, and who, as
they drift along over the ocean of life
and religion, allow themselves, by
their listlessnes3, to become first in-
different, then rebellious, then defiant,
followed closely by scepticism, reck-
lessness and hatred. ■'-- '•
"Every one is either drifting or
struggling, and each individual to re-
alize which of the two he is doing.
All learn evil day by day, and should
strive all the more to learn some good
to offset the evil. What a failure it is,
this struggling along relying only on
one's own strength; all in the ('ark,
nothing 'to guide by, no gleam of light
in the distance. Drifting away from
all nobility andi purpose of life": drift-
ing away from "the only anchor that
can ever give peace, out into the broad
sea with its dangers, its storms and
, awful cataract of death. Better" the

Able Sermon Delivered "by Rev.
| An unusually large congregation at-
tended the afternoon services at St.
John's church, corner of Ashland and
.Maekubin streets. Bishop. Vincent,
bishop of the Southern diocese of Ohio,
conducted the services. The choir ren
dered some ; beautiful selections and
showed exceptional training in particu
lar in the rendition of the offertory,
"Thy Will Keep Him." Bishop Yin-
cent took as his text a portion of the
sixteenth verse, fifth chapter of St.
James, which was also part of the
lesson read during the services. "The
effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous
man availeth much." He said in part:
, "The man who prays wields ons of
the greatest and mightiest forces in !
the whole universe; in fact, he sets in !
motion all the forces of the universe.
The question now arises, do you be-
lieve this? You all pray, I trust, but
do you pray fervently and with your
whole heart and soul? Is there not a
time In your life when you have met
with discouragements, and at such a
time has not the thought come to you
and you would say, 'What' is. th© use-
Will God answer me?' Spiritual truth
cannot be solved by man alone. When
the province of reason ends the prov
ince of faith begins. We have a right
to assume the existence of God the
same as we have a right to assume the
existence of the human soul.. He is
'the Supreme Being— the creator of all |
in this universe, the Father .Who has
(placed us upon this earth the same as
any father places his children on the
] earth. Does It not stand to reason that |
God, placing us here, will look after
us and answer our prayer when and
how He sees fit?
I "Doey a mother grant the every wish
of her child? Would it be policy, and
would she be discreet in doing so? A
great many people give up and say that
God cannot answer because He does
not apparently answer their every
prayer. Is it not true that most of our
prayers are for our own physical ben-
jefit and welfare? He may hot, to your
•mind, answer every prayer, but later
you will find It has been a spiritual
discipline for you that He did not.
God has given you in prayer a power
that will reach to His very throne.
'More things are wrought by prayer
mi this world than men ever dream of.
The best purpose of God Is not to
pray", God to our side, but to pray our-
selves to His side. ;■-;.-:,
* "God Is a universal spirit, and never
so far off but what He Is very near.
We live and move and have our very
being In Him. How la it when we come
to pray for physical blessing In sick-
ness, adversity, etc? How does He
answer? It Is a thing which cannot
be well defined. He works when and
where He will, and It Is through the
churches that God answers our pray-
ers. God always answers ln some way.
Believe in the Instincts of your own
heart and in the power of God ito touch
a responsive chord In It. The whole
world 'is bound with golden chains
"which are about tho feet of God."

Yesterday the morning services at
St. Peter's Episcopal church, corner of
j Maple and Fourth streets, were con
ducted by Bishop Leonard/of the dio
-1 cese 'of Utah and Nevada. - Baptismal
ceremonies were performed, the little
daughter of ReV. A. T. Gesner, pastor
of the church, and the two daughters
of Mr. and Mrs. Hugh- Jones, being
baptized. Rev. Gesner's daughter was
christened Helen Sarjent, and the two
daughters of Mr. Jones, Frances Ruth
-and Alice Estele respectively. The
music furnished by the vested choir
was a prominent and pleasing part of
the services. A large congregation

"The lesson, my friends, to lie learned
. "The lesson, my friends, to be learned
from this text Is of the greatest Im
portance. To love one's neighbor as
thyself Is far more than all the burnt
offerings. The Lord said, 'Thou shalt
love the Lord, thy God, with all thy
heart, soul and mind.' But there was
also a second command given us:"Thou
shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.'
The man who has learned to love and
consider his neighbor in the same light
as himself has also teamed to love
God. I find there are far too many
people in the world today who are ap
parently contented with a negative
kind of Christian existence. When
some of you who are in this church
today have turned your thoughts with-
in and studied your own hearts, have
you not found that this is very true?
Have you not found that you are not
what you should be to be the Chris-
tians you hope you are? It is no doubt
true that God's kingdom is in the
world, but not of the world as a great
many people think. God's church is
here to make Itself felt in molding the
whole of society, and to bid and [earn
all lives to learn and worship God.
God says, 'Love one another.' You
should take that text home with you,
mould It Into your lives, and see that
you love your neighbor as thyself. To
love our neighbors as ourselves wo
must recognize and show them the'
same consideration that we do our-
"People ask 'Is the world growing

HOUSE OF GOOD SHEPHERD.
Bishop Cnparns Conducts ; the
Evening; Services •
The evening services at the House
of the Good Shepherd, corner of Cc-
dar and Twelfth streets, were con-
ducted by Bishop Caparas, of South
Carolina. It was. announced previous-
ly that Bishop McClaren, of Chicago,
would preach upon this occasion, but
owing to later arrangements he was
prevented from doing so. Bishop Ca-
paras' text was the fifteenth verse of
the thirteenth chapter of St. John:
"For I have given you an example
that you should do as I have done to
you." He said in part:
"At the feast of the PassOver God,
as an example, washed the feet of the
disciples to teach a lessen in truth
and His religion. There was nothing
whatever of a. dramatic nature in his
washing the feet of the disciples. It
was to show and teach them a lesson,
and to each of His followers He ex-
tended the command: "Follow me,'
and to each He said, 'I have' set an
example.' The example of Jesus is a
lesson that we should all remember
and follow in our home and business
life. To aim at the perfections of His
pure and moral nature. Many people
are afraid to follow alter Jesus in the
example He has given us. They are
afralu of the criticism of their neigh-
bors, and I believe that this popular
error it* the greatest barrier to our re-
ligion. So sacred is the Christian char-
acter ot the Lord, so exalted is His
aim, that whosoever endeavors and
coes live up t<;« His lalth Is set upon a
great eminence. '
' "A great mind and a great soul al-
ways manifests itself by its. interest
in others. It is not in human nature
to be indifferent to fie perfect char-
acter in human lite. There is noth-
ing in the sp.rit or character of Jesus
| that ever repelled men. A great, char-
acter is what" God. designed ail His j
children to be. It is a germ we all !
possess in common. The mind of
Christ and our mmdi, all belong to one I
family— the mind of God. He never |
held Himself as an inapproachable ex- j
ample. He Invited all men to love and
trust Him that tfley might take Him
into their souls and lixe Him. He
compared Himself to a vine and Its
, branches— same sap of life for
both as was the same sap of life for
: Him and all men. His love Is as free
as the sun that shines and the air we
breathe. No man receives his per-
sonal character at birth. So with tne
Christian character. It must be de-
rived from growth."

Rt. Rev. G. F. Seymour, bishop of
Springfield, preached at the morning
service yesterday at St. James' church,
Lawton and De Soto streets. The
beautiful little church still wore the
decorations that embellished it at the
time of the harvest festival, and it
looked very handsome. There was' a
great crowd present, the capacity "of |
the edifice being taxed. :."'■
The procession, consisting of the !
bishop, Rev. R. H. Cotton, the rector, j
and a surpllced choir, formed In the I
guild home, and proceeded to the i
church, the choir chanting the proces- I
sional. The morning prayer service
and the litany, conducted by Mr. Cot- i
ton, preceded the sermon by the bish- \
op, and there was .some, very fine sing-
ing by a choir of eighteen young la-
Bishop Seymour took his text from
Mathew xxii., 37-38: "Love the Lord,
thy God, with thy whole heart and
foul and mind and thy neighbor as
thyself." "In those words, my breth
ren," said the bishop, "are contained
the central principles of the science
of religion, thei queen of sciences.
They reduce the whole Bible to a
sentence, and that sentence is sim-
plicity itself— That is the whole
of the science of religion. It is the
! heart, and soul of religion, ».ind con-
tains all that is taught In the many-
books of the Bible. 'Thou shalt love
the Lord, thy God, with thy whole \
soul.' How are wo to obey this law, j
which was enunciated by the second '
person of the Trinity? The story of j
His life appeals to our love. It was i
one great sacrifice. He sacrificed !
Himself for us because He loved us.
Look at* that face in the stable at
Bethlehem, look at It again on the
cross of Calvary, and you will under-
stand what His love was. 'Love - thy
neighbor as thyself.' You will say,
'How can we do that? The best of our
friends have their faults; 4 ley annoy
I us and make us angry.' Follow His
example and you will know who your
neighbor is and how you may love
him. For He, with His infinite love,
is with you always, from the cradle 1
to the grave, and will be with you
1 when you are taken Into the bosom of
Abraham. In the lessen of His life
there is all the teaching that you need
to find who your neighbor is. Give up
your apathy, your selfishness, and fol-
low His sacred footsteps to eternal sal-
vation by the practice of the active
principle of religion—

Mgr. Nugent, of Liverpool, occupied
Mgr. Nugent, of Liverpool, occupied
the- pulpit of St. Luke's yesterday
morning, and pleaded In behalf of the
seminary of St. Paul. He took for his
text from the gospel of St. John, chap.
x., 11: "I am the Good Shepherd. The
good, shepherd glveth his life for his
Hock." He said:
"How deeply are these words of
Jesus Christ engraven in the mind of
the church. All love, care, providence,
devotion, watchfulness that is in earth
or in heaven, in the ministry of men
or of angels, is but a reflection or par-
ticipation of that which is in Him.
Surely nothing but the vision of His
presence in glory can exceed this
revelation of Himself. These words
have taken so strong a hold upon
Christians that, from the beginning,
they passed a3 a common title for
their exalted Head. It was the sym
bol under which In times of persecu
tion His presence was shadowed forth.
To this hour, it is seen in the silent
catacombs of Rome, and in the Vati-
can and Lateran museums. For the
early Christians sculptured the 'Good
Shepherd' on the sepulchres and cata-
combs; painted it in upper chambers
and oratories; it was traced on the
early manuscripts, and even the
sacred chalices used in the divine
sacrifice of the altar. Art has made
us familiar with it in so many elo
quent and touching forms. The chisel
of the sculptor and the pencil of the
painter have been exercised on it and
given the world imperishable memo-
rials. The image of the Good Shep-
herd expressed the Christians' deepest
affections, fondest thoughts, most do-
cile obedience and most implicit trust.
For it was a title in which all others
combine. Priest, prophet, king. Savior,
guide are all summed up in this one
I more than royal, paternal, saving
name. It recalls ,in one word
all the. mercies and loving kindness of
God to His people of old, when the
Shepherd made His own people to go
forth like sheep and guided them in
the wilderness like a flock."
Having explained the character and
office of the Good Shepherd towards
the church and His relation to them,
though now ascended into heaven'
and His everlasting love to the sheep
of His fold, redeemed by His blood,
and His unfathomable. love shown in
the provision made for man's salva
tion, the preacher said: "Xo soul can
fall attaining eternal salvation, of
reaching the true fold in heaven, ex-
cept by his own free will. The blood-
shedding of the Good Shepherd on the
cross is a full and perfect ransom for
all His flock, to pay He pledged the
perpetual exorcise of His unseen pas-
toral care to give to us all that is
necessary for our salvation.
"And for this He has provided, first of
all, in the external foundation and vis-
ible perpetuity of His church. He has
secured it by the commission to baptize
all nations, by the universal proceed-
ing of His apostles, by shedding abroad
the Holy Ghost, by .the revelation of
all truth, by the universal tradition of
the faith in all the world. For the per-
petuity of the church He has pledged
| His divine word, that 'the gates of
hell shall not prevail against it,' and
in this He has provided for the per-
petuity both of truth and grace. For
what is the perpetuity of the church,
but the perpetuity of the society of
them that are sanctified through the
truth? And how shall this be. unless
j the means of sanctlficatlon, the faith
and sacraments, are likewise perpet
ual? The universal promulgation of
the truth and the universal adminis
tration of the holy sacraments to the
church planted in all lands throughout
the world, is a supernatural fact— a
perpetual miracle sustained by Divine
power, wrought once for all and con-
taining the' surest provisions of per-
petuity through the presence of Christ
by the Holy Spirit. Therefore, as the
church is indefectible, though particu
lar members may fall of life eternal,
so it can never lose /the truth, though
here and there individuals or certain
localities may err. In like manner of
| the Holy Sacraments and mysteries of
I grace, Our Lord said to His apostles,
and through them to us: 'Lo. I am with
you always, even unto the end of the
. world.' The communion, authority,
succession and power of the apostles,
is included in that promise and upheld
by it. However, It may be forfeited by
Individuals or parties of the visible
church, yet it will always be perpetu
ated with . tho gift. of. Increase and
multiplication, until the day of Christ's
coming. In that apostolic communion
are containea all the acts and sacra-
ments by*' which the .grace of Jesus
Christ is bestowed upon mankind, from
the first engrafting of nails into His
body, to the last viaticum given to the
dying soul.. It is in the tenderness of
His pastoral care that He has estab
lished and ordained" the priesthood of
His church.' He who shed His blood and
gave His life for all, "would have all
men to be saved and to come to the
knowledge of the truth? Whosoever
shall call on the name of the Lord shall
be saved. How, then, shall they call
on . Him In whom they have not be-
lieved? and how shall they believe in
Him of whom they have not heard? and
how shall they hear without a preach-
er?' How. shall they? It is the voice
not more of the Gospel than of pure
reason, that the perpetuity of faith
on earth is bound up with the per-
petuity of the . apostolic commission;
nay, further, that the priesthood Is the
means to the perfection of the saints.
"If, then, there be one Institution of
Jesus Christ in which the love, tender-
ness and care |*»nd providence of the
Good Shepherd be revealed, it Is in the
communion and perpetual reunion of
His pastors: for In one word It is this—
that from the day of His ascension to
the time of His coming, there shall
never bo wanting in the darkest day—
a chosen body bound by all the vows
which constrain the hearts of men to
live a life of pity, compassion, humility,
gentleness, self-sacrifice and love; and
that not for themselves, nor for their
own kith and kin, nor for their own
blood; but 'for the poor of the flock'—
for the lowly, ignorant, wandering,
weary, soiled, outcast perishing sheep
of Christ. If the goodness and spirit
of the Heavenly Pastor be not here,
tell me where It may be found. If
there be any sympathy, any' faith,
which Is full of life, energy, consolation,
love to all the faithful, but above all-
to the ignorant, helpless, afflicted and
poor, it Is that of the One Holy Catho
lic Church, as we confess It In the
creed— the one true fold of the One
• Good Shepherd." . '; ~- .->
