SERMON
DeliviMTil nt St. Anthony's
Church. Ut. St. .Man’s, by Rev. M. F.
Foley, Pastor St. Paul's Church, Balti
more, tin the occasion of Father Trnges
ser's Silver Jubilee of Ordination
to the Priesthood
“Honor God with all thy soul and give
honor to the priests.” ~F.cclesiasticus
7. 33.
We are here today to honor God in one
whom He has signally honored, in one
whom his Lord called, I will not simply
say to His service, but to His intimate
friendship, twenty-five years ago. In
doing as we do, we are acting in the true
spirit of religion, in the same spirit in
which St. Paul wrote to his disciple Tim
othy, the bishop of Ephesus: “Let the
priests that rule well, be esteemed worthy
of double honor, especially those who la
bor in work and doctrine. ” (1 Tim. 5. 1 •. >
Speaking to His priests, Christ hlinsell
says: “He that heareth you, heaceth Me,
and that despiseth you, despiseth Me.”
(Luke 10. 16.) A weakening of respect
for priests or growing indifference to
their work, is a sure sign of lessening
faith and piety, whether it be in 1111 indi
vidual or in a people, a sure forerunner
of spiritual decay and death.
It is right, then, that following the in
stincts of faith and piety we should doze
such an occasion as this to manifest out
wardly the reverence and love which we
have in our hearts for one who has labor
ed so long and well in Christ’s vinyard.
1 see here our Right Reverend Auxiliary
Bishop, the representative of the vener
ated and venerable Cardinal Archbishop.
1 see here brother priests coming from
far-olf fields of labor; 1 see here in good
ly number members of the laity who knew
and appreciated Father Tcagesserin oth
er fields of duty. It is fitting indeed that
Father Tragesser’s ecclesiastical superi
ors and his priestly brethren; and his old
lime faithful friends among the laity,
should join you, parishioners of St. An
thony’s, in honoring one whom you and
they have found worthy of honor.
May 1 be permitted to intrude my own
personality just a little at this moment?
There is not one here who knows your
friend and pastor as well as I know him.
1 knew him as a little child in St, John's
school in Baltimore, as an acolyte in St.
John’s Sanctuary, as a student in St.
Charles’ College and St. Mary's Semin
ary. During his absence in France and
Canada I lost sight of him for a while.
Later, from the beginning of his priestly
labors in this archdiocese to the present
hour, none knew him so well as 1. Some
fruitful years of Father Tragesser’s
priestly life he spent with meat St. Raul’s
in Baltimore, and 1 cun truly say that
never did priest labor more zealously,
more faithfully, more devotedly. He
truly made himself all things to all, that
he might gain all to Christ. The people
of St. Paul’s who are here today will
hear me out when 1 say these things; and
1 can say, moreover, that no associate
has ever shown a pastor more unselfish
devotion, more unswerving loyalty and
1 have learned to know and appreciate
devotion and loyally.
1 have said these things at the risk of
shocking the modesty of my good friend,
but he knows well that I would not speak
one word here with the intent to flatter
him. Were Ito do so, I should be pay
ing my friend’s honesty but a poor com
pliment, and at the same time be giving
but a poor sample of my own. J have
spoken these words of praise for a pur
pose. There is a Latin saying which runs
thus; ‘ Nil de moriuis nisi bonum.” It
means “Speak only good of the dead.”
Some seem to think it means “Speak
good of the dead only.” These people
have few good words of any living mor
tal, and, strange to say, the few they
have are generally for the stranger out
side the gates; of the neighbor at their
side they rarely have u good word, to him
a word of praise is never spoken. I knew
a teacher who used to say, “I will tell
the boys their faults, the devil will tell
them their virtues.” There are but 100
many like this narrow-minded teacher
who forgot that while honest, adverse
criticism may be an occasional duty,
chronic fault-finding is a constant annoy
ance, and that honest praise for honest
deeds from honest men is “twice blessed.
It blesseth him that gives and him that
takes.” God himself has deigned many,
many times to praise His creatures for
their good deeds. How many of God’s
servants can think, or act as if they thot
it a prerogative of the devil to say good
things to their fellow-servants, or of
them, passes my comprehension.
A well-known orator once told some
admirers who had presented him an ad
dress: “A little taffy while one is living
is preferable to a whole lot of epitaphy
when dead.” What the orator calls
“taffy” is often but fulsome flattery, and
very sickening; but underlying his home
ly expression, there is the same thought
that is worded moat beautifully in an ad
dress delivered on an occasion like this
and from which 1 quote: “Such joyous
celebrations as this give strength and
coinage and buoyancy to the priest him
self. It is men and not angels to whom
God has entrusted His ministry, and the
priest is intensely human. How many a
ptiest has gone down discouraged hy
want of appreciation, disheartened hy
harsh words of nagging criticism, who
might have been lifted up and spurred
on to greater zeal hy an occasional word
of recognition, of encouragement, even
of praise, judiciously bestowed. For one,
1 do not believe that all the kind words
to be said about a faithful priest must
he unspoken until his funeral. Weave
some of the fine thoughts and generous
feelings of your hearts into a bouquet
for him while he is living—do not save
them all for a crown of immortelles to
lay on his coffin.”
But I know full well that Father Tra
gesser keeps for himself not one jot or
title of the honor which we pay him. He
recalls, as he listens to my words, that
day twenty-five years ago, when he was
raised to the sacred priesthood by a ven
erable missionary who had consecrated
his own life to God’s service in far-off
India. When he rose up, a priest forever
according to the order of Melchisedech,
no thought of self was in Father Tra
gesser’s priestly heart. It was in Die
chapel of the Seminary of Foreign Mis
sions in Paris, in that holy spot where
the sacred unction of the priesthood had
been given to many an illustrious con
fessor, to many a glorious martyr. To
the glorious traditions that clustered
around that hallowed sanctuary the young
priest promised to he true, and he has
kept his promise. From that day to this
he has never failed to thank God lor the
great, the surpassing grace of the priest
hood, and today, after twenty five years,
as we recall his burning zeal and his
fruitful labors, he looks up into the luce
of his model, the Great High Priest, the
Lord Jesus, and says, “Not to me, 0
Lord, not to me, but to Thy Name be
given the glory.” And so do we, on this
day, give the glory where it is due; in
honoring the Juhilinarian we honor his
sacred ollice, his priesthood, and we hon
or the Model and Exemplar of every true
Driest. Jesus, the Great High Priest ol
the New Law.
The priesthood what a mystery to the
unbelieving world? Bui why in <dl s; \
this? Is it given to any man on earth to
understand the wonderful dignity of tin
priesthood, the sacred responsibility ol
he priest?
Christ at the Last Supper had changed
bread and wine into His Body and Blood.
What He had done He would give His
Apostles the power to do. So to the
twelve Ho raid. “Do this in commemora
tion of Me.” It is of divine faith, that
by these words Christ made His Apostles
priests and gave them power over His
Sacramental Body.
A few days later the Risen Christ
breathed upon the Apostles and said,
“Receive ye tin- Holy Ghost, whose sins
ypu shall forgive, they are forgiven them,
and whose sins you shall retain, they are
retained.” (John 3u, It is of
divine faith that when Christ uttered
these words He gave to His priests juris
diction over His mystic Body, the Church,
over the souls that had been made His by
water and the Holy Ghost. In the gilt
of these two powers power over the
sacramental and power ( ver the mystic
body of Christ was the power of the
priesthood made complete.
Power over Christ’s sacramental body
the greatest glory, the greatest re
sponsibility of the priest. The wonder
ful power which no man can take from
even the most unworthy; that wonderful
power to whose efficacy no man can put
a limit. The Creator said, “Let there he
light, and theie was light”; Mary, to
the angel of God, said, “He it done unto
me according to Thy word,” and the Son
of God became Incarnate; Christ dying
on the Cross said, “It is consummated”,
and His sacrifice had redeemed the world.
A man raised to the priesthood stands
afraid at the foot of the altar, and there
before heaven and earth acknowledge his
unworthiness, but He who called him out
from his fellows to be His own friend,
aye, even to be His other self, encour
ages him to go up unto the mount of
sacrifice. The priest takes into his
trembling hands a little bread and wine,
and bowing low, utters mystic words not
given even to angel to utter, and, lu, the
Lord bows the heavens and comes down
and rests in His creature’s hands. A
miracle greater than that of light’s cre
ation is wrought; the miracle of Nazareth
and Bethlehem and Calvary is renewed.
Nor is this all; He who became incarnate
at Nazareth, was born in Bethlehem, and
died on Calvary’s Cross, would remain
on earth, our Emmanual, our God with
us, and He who by the hands of his dis
ciples fed of old the multitudes, would
by the hands of His priests feed His peo
ple, not once or twice, but many times,
and even until the world’s ending. And
as Joseph guarded the child Jesus and
bore Him into distant Egypt, so the
priest today and every day while the
world endures, shall be the guardian of
His Sacramental Lord, and with Jesus
resting upon his bosom as He rested on
the bosom of dear Joseph or of beloved
John, shall the priest bear his Lord over
plain and mountain, through forest and
wilderness, along quiet country roads,
through noisy, crowded city streets, to
the sick and the dying, to the sinful and
the sorrowing, to feed famishing souls
with the Bread of Eternal Life.
And the wonderful power of the priest
over the mystic body of Christ, His
Church, Mis faithful people, given when
Christ said, “Whose sins you shall for
give, they are forgiven them!” “Who
can forgive sins but God?” the unbe
lievers said of old to Christ when he par
doned a sinner. True, only God can, on
ly God does forgive sin, but God can and
does, in pardoning sin, make use of in
struments as He does in so many others
of His operations, and the great instru
ment of God’s mercy and pardon in the
world at this hour is the priest in the
Sacrament of Penance. Only on the last
great accounting day will we know all
the wonderful miracles of grace wrought
in the tribunal of penance, where the
priest sits as a patient father, a skilled
physician, a wise judge; where there come
the-old and the young, the rich and the
poor, the learned and the ignorant, for
comfort, for counsel, for healing. Those
who are striving for perfection, those
who are cold and indifferent, those who
are struggling against sin, those who long
since ceased to struggle and went down '
with the stream, the prodigal and the
Magdalen, the saint and the sinner, all j
come to Jesus, the merciful, in the per- j
son of His priests. They come, too, the
sorrowing and broken hearted, the scorn
ed and the outcast, and to the priest
hearts are opened that are closed to all
else, to him woundsof the soul are shown
that are known only to God beside. 'I o
him the tales of struggles and of falls
are told, of falls ofttimes from loftiest
heights to deepest depths; to him, Luo,
are told, and often, stories of poor weak
humanity’s desperate struggles against
the mightiest powers of evil and of most
glorious victories of the I’recious Blood
once shed on the Cross, anil now saving ;
souls day by day in the Sacrament of
Penance.
O. My Brethren! could the angels envy
a mortal, they would envy the priest
whose consecrated hands bring down up
on the altar the Lord before Whom they
veil their faces with their wings; they
would envy the priest whose absolving
words cleanse from sin souls long the
bond-slaves of the evil one, and lit these
souls to be their own associates in heaven.
Angels have from time to time been
God’s messengers to men. From the day
on which Christ said to His Apostles, >
“Going, therefore, leach ye all nations”,
priests have been His messengers, tell
ing men in His name and by His author
ity, what they must believe, wdial they
must do, what they must avoid, if they
i would have Eternal Life.
I All that the priest of God is by virtue
1 of his power of consecration, by virtue
1 of his power of absolution, all that the
priest of God is as the angel of the Gos
pel’s good tidings, your pastor is. All
that the man, so highly favored by God,
shouW he in his relations with God and
his fellow-men, your pastor has earnest
ly stiven to he during these twenty live
years. And now you will join with him
j today as he humbly asks God’s pardon j
i for aught that may have been amiss in
| these long years of service. You will
I join with him as he humbly prays lor
i race to be faithful in the years to come.
! You will with all your hearts join with
1 me as 1 pray:
() Jesus, Eternal Priest, keep this Thy
holy one within the shelter of Thy Sacred
; Heart, where none may touch him!
Keep unstained his anointed hands,
j which daily touch 1 hy Sacred Body!
Keep unsullied the lips purpled with
i Thy Precious Blood!
i Keep mire and unearthly a heart seal
| ed with the sublime marks of I hy Glori
t ous Priesthood!
Let Thy holy love surround him, and
shield him from the world’s contagion!
Bless his labors with abundant fruit,
and may they to whom he has ministered,
he here below bis joy and consolation,
! and in heaven his everlasting crow n.
| Amen.
Heavy Thunder Storm.
llamas Hone Hy Wind. Haiti
And Hail in County.
On Wednesday evening of last week a '
heavy thunder storm passed over Thur.
moot. The lightning was very vivid and ,
a boll struck the chimney on Mr. Robert 1
Eigenbrode’s house near town. The ]
family was in the building but were not 1
injured, although frightened very badly. '
The wind and rain was very heavy, and ,
considerable hail fell, some of the stones
| being more than half an inch in diame
i ter. This storm seemed to be centra' j
j over Thurmont and was comparatively
I local.
On Wednesday evening of this we-a
| thunderstorm passed this way. A b-dt
;of lightning struck J. Irvin Mack ley's ,
j residence, cutting the lighting wires into,
knocked some ceiling from the bathroom
and blew a quantity of dirt from a chim
ney about a bedroom. Noonewasin the
house at the time except Mrs. Mary S.
Firor, Mrs. Mackley’s mother. She was
not injured. A number of phones were ;
burned out arid light cut off from a num
ber of homes.
On Saturday evening a series of thun
der storms passed over the county, the 1
rain to the north and south being heavier
than at this place.
In the vicinity of Walkersville one of -
these storms did considerable damage. A
cow belonging to Charles Schell, near :
Dublin, was struck and killed, and light
ning struck the barn on the Harlan Sum
mers farm, Mr. Benj. Keilholtz now re
siding on this farm.
The Glade Reformed church, Walkers
ville, was struck by a lightning boll Sat
urday evening, but only slight damage
was done and this is covered by insur
ance. The tower was struck and some
of the slate torn off. It is considered
most fortunate that the church was not
destroyed. Persons nearby felt the effect
of the bolt. Rev. Guy P. Bready, at the
parsonage next door, stated that the
shock was quite noticeable. Fire (lew
in all directions when the bolt hit the
church.
