THE INDIAN ADVOCATE. 151
Wiltzius Co., of Milwaukee, Wis., gives (1903) 11,289,710 Catholics and so the proportion would be nearly 5 to 1. tt Onck more the-month of May consecrated to our heav enly Queen is at hand. Let us confidently address Mary, our Mother, with St. Bernard: "O Clement, O pious, O sweet Virgin Maryl Clement to the needy; compassionate to those who invoke her; mild to those who love her; indulgent to wards penitents; benign in favor of the just; generous in her bounties; sweet when she gives herself to those who seek her." Happy the country that is consecrated to Mary; happy the city, the hamlet, the lonely wayside shrine where her im age is honred. Happy the Christian family where during this beautiful month her intercession is invoked. Hail, Mother most pure: Hail, Virgin renowned: Hail, Queen of the stars Asa diadem-crowned. Above all the angels In glory untold Standing next to our King In a vesture of gold. O Mother of Mercy! O star of the wave! O hope of the guilty! O light of the grave! Through Thee may we come To the haven of rest; And see heaven's King In the courts of the blest. These praises are prayers We lay at thy feet, O Virgin of virgins! ' O Mary most sweet' ' "There is sorrow, sorrow for the pulses that are beating, .but unutterably blessed are the dead."
