ST. MARGARET'S NEWS
Father J. N. Samuels-Belbod^r, Viear
"Let her alone she has done
what she could." This was the text
from which the morning sermon was
preached, last Sunday. Poor valua
tion condemned, envious criticism re
buked, conscientious, sympathetic and
full effort to do good warmly appre
ciated and commended. (1) There are
so many people to whom stupid critic
ism is meat and drink. They live and
move so far aprt from the law of
thought that sheer presumption and
brazen effontry are the only qualifi
cations they posess. Sometimes they g^er
possess partial knowledge, then im-
moderate enthusiasm and purely sel-
fish personal gam prick them to blab-
ber out their shallow and callow mor-
ahty. This, partly, was the case in ,.
Mission, especially her attention
this incident. The disciples who! .,
out against it without stopping to in
quire why this apparent "waste," and
an economic loss, surely but were
blind to the spiritual gain. Too
sharp an eye for business, too poor
never convulsed by paraxyms of pam.
They were never cured fo,g,ven
stored and saved by Christ. They
were at no time in need of such a
complete therapeutic attention hence
they could not understand that hum-
ble attitude, that grateful shower of
tears, that expenditure of wealth this
woman lavished upon the worthy
Master. Not having been in a like
state, they failed to enter the right
sympathy. This would not have been
blaniuble if they had not reached to
criticise, if they had not spoken unad
visedly with their lips,—and with as
poor an excuse.
