379 THE INDIAN ADVOCATE that She vanquished the last of her enemies the Jansenists, and arose unthwatte.1 in her heavenward career, leaving behind her forever ihe scattered remnants of the once powerful sects that opposed her. It was in this century that Our Lord taught the devotion of His Sacred Heart to an humble nun, that He might enkindle new ardor in the world, where the hearts of men had grown cold. The history of the ensuing centuries is filled with records of the Church's triumph. These centuries saw the Church freed from the fetters that bound her in England and Germany, in Denmark, Norway and Sweden. These centuries have seen thousands returning from tin-old heresies to the true faith; they have witnessed the solemn promulgation of the dogmas of the Blessed Virgin's Immaculate Conception and of the Pa pal Infallibity. These centuries have seen the peace with which God's Church was blest after the epoch of the revolu tion in France, and, although, it is true, they have seen the Sovereign pontiff despoiled of his patrimony by robbers' hands they have seen the "Prisoner of the Vatican," rise as a po werful factor in the affairs of the world, and in the goodness of God this century will see Rome the city of the Apostles and Martyrs restored to the Papal sovereignty.
