THE INDIAN ADVOCATE.
B m i8o m. A) The Maxim of the Sacred Heart 3 Not my will, but Thine be donci Luke xxii, 42 X M WTTnTJTTTM ATT7T V fViJe nnWo rlmiico nf tha Viorn- I ic heart of Jesus finds no echo in the overwhelm ing majority of human hearts. For, if it did, the Sacred Heart on its heavenly throne would hear no more the endless murmurings and lamentations of discontent re-echoing all over. This earth of ours would witness no longer such dreadful scenes of sin, sadness and despair. It is an undeniable fact that, in this valley of tears, there exists an endless variety of evils, as sailing poor humanity on all sides and endeavoring to embit ter our very existence. At one time it is a devastating war that destroys broadcast the fruits of generations of ingenuity and toil. Another time some domestic enemy poisons the source of blessings, the peace of our home. Now it is, as if the heavens were transformed into a huge mass of steel, whilst the crops, upon which we rely for progress and support, wither miserably away. Again the maddened elements over throw in the twinkling of an eye all bounds and laws, to rage equally against the works of nature and of man. Then there are times, when the human frame is racked with illness and pain. When we least expect, the every-busy hand of unre lenting death separates us suddenly from those we most need and love. At times, around, us there is serenity and peace, whilst wifhin us a host of passions war both against our conscience and sense of slf-preservation, bidding fair of underming our energy and strength. In addition thereto, how often is our heart nearly torn asunder by the perfidiousness of supposed friends or the intrigues and assaults of undeserved enemies?
