Christmas! The day ~r days God mani
fested! God in the flesh I Christ, the reStorer,
the repairer I who is to bvrero le- the enemy,
and bid us live in Him, as He Tod I Christ
mias ! It is a day of joy I Hayew!e thought of
this ? It is Christ born to overeome the world,
the flesh au~l the devil. Shall we celebraof it
with bacchanalian orgies, ostentatious displays,
and profane amusements I That were scaregly
in the spirit of the festival.
' Christmas! It is thddaly of three Maeses, to
lionor the three births of Christ : the first, the
eternal generation of the Son .in the bosom of
His Father the second, the birth of that same
Son on eartih, the veritable and outward mani
festatiou of,God, Emmanuel, God with us, hav
ing taken flesh of avirgin; and the third, to
signify the birth of God in our souls, to render
us dirine, ~ons of God by adoption, co-heirs fith
Christ; our brother of the eternal kingdom of
truth, beauty justice, happiness and love.
We are divorced from this by nature; none
can look round the world without-realizing
that facf even too forcibly. But the Restorer
comes. We will hail with gratitude and joy,
and zealously endeavor to comprehend His.
views in our regard to co-operate with them.
First, then, who is this restorer who comes to
us i Tertullian shall furnish us with the an
swer: " God," said he, "' was alone before the
creation of the world, because there was noth
ing outside of .11m; but in Him was His wis
dom, his re:ison, and Ilis interior word; which
were then produced outside, and became His
exterior word. " * " This exterior utter
ance is termed generation, by which Ged said:
'Let there be lightl' without prejudice to the
eternity of the interior Word which is wisdom.
" It is," says he, " this Word, whi'eh, I say, is
a persop, aunl to which-I attribute the name of
Son; and acknowledging Him for tleSon I
maintain that-He is the second after the'Father.
PHe was always In the Father, and iits be~l ifo
duedl by hlint,. ,ithoflt ever being separated
fron him. lie was pioduced from Him as a
plant from its root, the- river from its source,
the ray frotU the sun. I decl re, tlbn, that I
name the two-God and His Word; the Fathler
and His don ;and tie third, after C'td aid His
Sou, who is the Spirit. *i l, glwdys the
rule which I laid down; Lt e'PlitFier, the
Son and the Spirit' are insepar ble from each
other. When I-say that the Father is 'other
than the Son and the Holy Spirit, I say so from
necessity, not to mark diversity but order; not
to mark division but distinction; die is other
in person, not in substance.
"He who begets is other than theune who is
begotten. He who sends is distinct from Him
wl:o is sent. He who is made is other than lie
who m:akes. The Lord Himself has used this
word other, in the person of -the- Paraclete,
when lie says, 'I will pray muy Father; and He
will send you another comforter.'
"Never will the name of two Gods and of
two Lords proceed from ,mr month: not hut
that the Father is God, and the Son God, and
the loly Ghost God; but because the Son is
called Gtodl only from His union with the Fa
thier, I will, in order not to scandalize the GO
tiles, imitate the example of the Apostle, and
if I have to name the Father aind the Son
together, I will call the Father God, and the
Son our Lgrd Jesus Christ. But when I unmet
Jesus Christ alone, I many call Hlim God.
"\Vhen the Scripture says there is but one
God, it is n i.st the pagans, who admit a maul
titudolof false gods; or against heretics, who
also create idols by their wordls; that is to say,
those who admit several principles, as Marcion
and the like. To show the unity of substance,
not the singleness of person, lie says, I am in
the Father, not, I amn the Father. When he
says, I and the Father are one, lie does not say
(1) nam, but (we) are. lie does not say untus in
the masculine, but saunan in the neuter."
It is then clear that when the \ord of God
took Ileshl, it was (od indwellThrg that came
amulongst us, to dwell with us, and in us, that
" we may be one with Ilitm as Tie is one with
the Father." The Word of God. was begotten
of the Eternal Father, that Hie might be born,
first, visibly in the world; secondly, invisibly
in mur hearts, to render us diriunc-to fepair our
loss, restore us to our lost position; but " the
Kingdom of God," that kingdomn to which all
aspire, "is within youn" saith the Lord, there
fore it is within us that we mnust celebrate
Christmas. "Glory to God on high. Peace on
earth to men of good will," sung the angels.
Let us have the good will, then, which alone
can claim the peace. "Rejoice evermore and
exceedingly' but see you for what you rejoice;
it is the coming of the Lord to restore harmony,
peace and love. To give man grace to regain
that divinity of adoption which he lost by his
fall, his lifein human- form isto be the preach
ing to our souls, as full of wondrous teaching
as-when hereafter the divine love flows from
His lips. Behold Him who is to redeem the sin
of Adam I A child laid in a manger, suffering
cold and hunger, warmed by the beath of the
fox and the ass, His creatures. This is the les
son of God to man, also His-ereature; to man
intent on worldly gain, making a merit of pro
curing worldly comfort, saying to his neighbor,
"We must perforce conform to the advance
ment of the age; we must belong to times in
which we live i" There is your God, vain man,
on earth; and He is, even in human descent,
of royal blood; one heralded by angels, who
were at all times at His bidding. See how He
conformed to the spirit of the age, to the ne
cessities of the times! IHad a man been com
missionled to save mankind, (which were, how=
ever, impossible, but for the sake of hypothe
sis,hJiad oLne of our modern reasoners, with the
menus possessed by our Lord as Ile lay in the
manger at his control, been intment on diffnsing
tfsth, h:e would have deemed it necessary for
the "tiu.tas," that great age of Agnustan learn
inug, of iumperial angnitficence, of splendor and
luxury, to make an imnlcmense display of intel
lect, power and afflttunence, in order, as we so
often hear it-said, to gain a respectable posi
tion, that we may do more gool. Iuman i
tellect, deluded by this idea, might have sought
to traverse the world with the clouds for a
chariot, attended by angels, borne up by the
spirits of the blest, would not all men then
have believed f The question has been asked
more than once by the scoffer; for exterior
means are ever tile first object in hiuiman calcu
lations, when they are intent o pn tgres, oeven
sprutilta progress.
lBut Christmas teaches another lesson. The
Word of God whichl fr:muicd the ulniverse, which

DIocESE. oF NEW YoxK.--Misions by lis
Fraseiensa.--Rov. Fathbi' Francis, O.8.P. as
sisted by Fathers Lee, 1fr, Edwards, and- Eh
ge:ne, have rebyutly been- giving a Mission at
New Brnswick, N. J., where somei four thou

FSrceman's Jqurn,aL
A correspondent of the Freeran's . Joasel,
writing from Iowa, says:
Last year's Catholic Directory shows four
churches built in Iowa, and .twelve in'the
course of erection. Churches alreadjy built, 90;
chapels, 10; stations, 40; convents or commu
nitiesof women, 10; priests 72; Catholic popu
lation, 150,000. The incessant labors of our
worthy Bishtop, his constant solicitude in pro
curing laborers for the destitute of hiefvie
yard, bespeak him the vigilant and faithful
guardian of this great and extensive diocese.
The Rev. P. J. R. Murphy, plistor of Waverly,
Iowa, dedicated two new churches lately; one
on Thanksgiving Day, the other on the follow
ing Sunday, November 29. The church in Wa
verly is a flue, substantial brick edifice, simple
in architecture, but cmnmaodious. The style of
architecture is Roman. It commands one of
the most lovely views of Waverly and vicinity;
seated on an eminence, it can be seen for miles
on every side. This edifice is a telling and will
be a lasting monument to the untiring energy
and zeal of its worthy pastor. Three days pre
vIous this same clergyman dedicated a neat
and beautifully finished church in Waterloo.
The labors of this zealous priest do not end
here, for he has three other churches in a state
of progress, and the foundation of three more
laid on the firm and solid rock, raised byardent
piety and unwavering faith. Three other
churches in the adjoining parishes have been
built recently, and several under Way tell for
themselves the real state of Catholicity. The
ranks of the priesthood have been greatly in
creased, a Catholic population is pouring rap
idly in, and in a few years hence the infidel
spirit of this State will be uprooted and scat
tered before the torrent of that faith which
prejudice cannot check, and which time cihano'
stem, but which rolls on in volunme and strength,
for on its crest it proudly bears the stamp of
the Eternal.
Another correspondent, writing from Titps
ville, says the Jesuit Fathers Smaiins anild
Bondreaux recently gave a Mission there
Seven converts, one of whoin was a deacon in
the Presbyterian church, together with a much
larger number of prodigal children, making al

Roame , Nov. 19.-The'Marquis de Bannevilie
is showing himself pot only a v ry active but a
good diplomatist, lie has just-passed into the
treasury-of the Pope 3,00,000 francs in gold on
aoomunt of th2 pontifical claims on Italy. - At
the samne time the.financial arrangement with
the Italian Government, which has given such
oflence in France and Belgium, proves to bhe
attractive to the Italian bondholders, and the
applications from every part of the peninsula
to exchange the old titres for the new pontifi
cal consolites are numerous. This invest-nent
offers the Italian holder indeed special advan
tages, since the dividends are exempt from the
income tax, while their paymint is secured in
specie under the convention concluded with
France. Another step toward better relations
between the two governments has been taken
by Coiu Menabren, in appointing, like Eng
land, asnunaccredited envoy at Rome, holding
a position which is -acknowledged without
beuing publicly recognized; The post has been
entrustef to Count Fe d'Ostiano, who is now
here, and who will move to and fro, sometimes
residing in Florence and sometimes in the
Eternal City. The Count is received by Car
dinal Antonelli as a private person, but treated
as the representative of Italy. He is regarded
with no friendly eye by the Marquis de Banne
ville, who wishes all concessions to be made
.through himself, and, indeed, considers a direct
understanding between Italy and the Pope qub
versive of French interests. A few diys ago
the Count came to Rome from Freschti, and
had an interview with Cardinal Antonelli, from'
whom he demanded the surrender to Italy of
the little Church of Dcl Indario, which has be
longed to the House of Savoy. Cardinal Au
tonelli engaged tomake inquiry into the claim,
and give it consideration; but his good inten
tions are not likely to have effect, for the inci
dent was instantly reported to thlMarquis of
Banneville,%-nd within a couple of hours this
functionary arrived at the Vatican to exact the
surrender of the church to France. The Mat
qunis declared that the edifice was an annexe of
the Duchy of Savoy, and belonged to the-Em
peror, though neither the Emperor nor himself
was aware of its existence until that morning.
There is everyprobability that the claim will
be allowed; but is it good policy for France to
battle with Italy for such a trifle -Pall Mall
GERuSIAY.-A strong Catholic movement is
setting in in Germany, and Count Blom, chief
of the Middle Verion, is now in Rome. M. Wil.
dir von Zetteles, the brother of the Bishop of
Mayence, has collected 27,000f. for the Gerrman
club and library for the- Pontifical soldiers of
that nation, and the ladies of Padderborn have
added 11,000 f. they have raised by Means of a
lottery. Six poor parishes of Saxony, inhabit
ed by the " Wends," -have subscribed 1000
thalers to the Papal deftence feud, and the
Archbishop of Cimbray sends :1.,000f. from one
of his diocesans. The diocese already main
tainus two entire companies of 100 meni each in
the Zouaves.
The Consistory for the creation of Cardinala
will be held next March. The Pope will then
confer the purple on ten prelates at once, thus
filling all the vcanqcies in the Sacred College,
which he desires to see complete for the Ecn
menical Council. On this occasion the Pope
will restore the Roman Catholic hierarchy of
Scotland. establishing a Primate at Glasgow,
and confer the Cardihal's hat on Archbishop
