1sW erRLANS, SUNDAY. M]LCH st. 18e2. .JComnsloatdl THE AUn icrh&TION OF TE1 BLESSED VIROI . The Churchb, in perfect consistency, cele brates, under this title, the utterance of God's eternal eounesl, which coheres, in the message of the angel to the Virgin, with the Incarn tion of His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. The festival which commends this nparall eled event to the loving memory of eve77 1 - tholio, indeed, of every one.who claims to be a Christian, is recorded in the earliest li.tr gles of the Church, while the Fathets of the like early periods-those espeeially of the Eastern horebh-from 8.Gregory the miracle worker of the middle of the third century, to St. Basil of Silencia, of the middle of the fifth, have, in most touching and convincing homi lies, paid eloquent reverence, to this great mystery, the first and greatest of the Christian faith, and to its solemn, binding consesration, in the primitive devotions and forms of publio worship. Of this there pannot be an historical doubt. The Sacrmentary of Pope Gelassus abundantly prov.es 4btt i- wae establlshed in Rome b0g efore the middle of the fifth- eptury, and hence that it mnst have come down to the Universal Church on the tide of the traditions of her darlier days. Indeed, Pope Benediet XIV,.the most erudite among the many erudite bagiologists of the Catholio Church, asserts this antiquity. We have his "Enohiridium" of Festivals under our eye as we write these lines, and in the third chapter of the second part, in which he treats of the feasts of Blessed Virgin, he broadly assunmes that, so great must have been its antiquity, '-we may piously and not unreasonably imagine that the pious worshiper is indebted for its origin to the living gratitude of the Blissed Mother borself, who, with the return of each of her earthly years, could not fail, with marked and lngular devotion to honor the mystery which, in r pure bosonm, had worked the salvation of ma d." Equally probable is it that the Apostles selves, and the disciples who soon swarmed und them, observant of this pious practice of t oly Virgin, readily con formed to the comme ration of so precious an anniversary of the rede ion of mankind. However this question of Ch ian archeol ogy or of religious tradition may rd, it is beyond doubt and cavil that, on this t of the Catholic Church, rests the very sum o deservings of the Blessed Virgin, wrapped in the mysterious honors of her motherhood. Neither the jeer of the scorner can blemish, nor can the cuonning of the serpent defeat, pre rogatives which God himself, with an unerring baud, has stamped for time and for eternity. Ece 'esim boatam me dicent omnes generationes! As all the accompaniments of her whole pre ,vious life had miraculously tended to the ends -- -ismysterious motherhood; so all its sanba quencios nmust necessarily have moved in har mony with the fninese of God's interests. Question this form of His merciful wisdom for the redemption of ore and death, and, by the act itself, you at once reject and defeat, so far as your vain question ings may reach, His merciful scheme, through the Blessed Virgin, for the salvation of man. There is no one-we do not say a Catholio, who is a higher witness of faith in Christ-who claimsato be a Christian, who, not yielding to this truth and this fact, can stand under their crushing weight, without danger of self-delu sion or rebellion against God. -These feeble remarks attempt neither the dignity nor yet the nature of adoginatio essay. They are intended to pour a loving, however inadequate tribute to the Mater rirentium--the mother of the living hopes of earth for the ever-living hopes of heaven, one of which, with as, is that it has so far-stated enough to suggest that the Annunciation is, and that it cannot be but, the - concentration of God's counsels tosoching the unapproachable destiny and pre-eminence of the Virgin Mary, selected by that annunciation as the agent of his mer cies to the children of earth through her super natural maternity. The measure of greatness of the divine in tent-if it may be measured-lies in the fact that this very mystery of the Virgin's mother hood is inseparable from the eternal, sovereign mystery of the redemption df mankind, devised through the union of God, the Uncreated, with the created and elect-work of His hand-the work of works of Almighty mercy, moved by Almighty love-the very centre around which then moved, and from that time, in the human sense, have down to us continued and, for gen erations unborn, shall continue to move all the spiritual hopes and destinies of earth, made secure by the eternal earnests of the annuncia tion made to the Virgin Mary. The Annunciation and the Incarnation are, therefore, but one and the same mystery which the Church logically blends in one commemo ration of grateful prayers and reverential love. For these there are reasons, which not only the voice of the Church displays,-but which the admissions of even Calvin himself, one of her most relentless enemies, freely proclaims. "We cannot admit," he says, " the blessings which Christ Jesus has brought to us, without admit ting, at the same time, the extent to which God has honored and enriched Mary when He elect ed that sheshould be the mother of His only be gotten Son." But theessential condition is that, not only had He willed that she should be the Mother of His only begotten, but, what is im measurably to her glory, that He also willed that she should freely coasent to the honor and sanctity destined for her name : that she should even discuss the means by which this high prerogative was to be ensured; is one word, that this great and merciful scheme, in contra diction, it would almost seem, of her own pre conceived ideas of duty, should depend on the fiat of her trusty humility and unbonnded faith: "Behold the servant of the Ld ! Be it done to me, according to thy words;" This is the great characteristic of the Annun ciation, the incipient mystery of all the mys teries, through which God works His ways with Ills creatures. Another scarcely less striking characteristic is that, through the sacred traditions of the past, Mary, by the graces which had been originally lavished upon her, and by the merits which they had secured, stood in every way worthy of the on earthly dignity, the glorions elevation for which she had been selected and to which she was raised. Wonderful ways of God's Provi dence! The promise of the Garden of Eden, after thousands of years, finding its fulfilment in a village, which had no existence when the promise was made! So great and worshipful a mystery could not have been announced; the record of its an nouncement could not have been handed down to revering posterities, save in that form which is essentially great in itself, the form of ineffa ble simplicity. With the very first accounts of that divine simplicity, which brings convic tion and pours faith into the human soul, we acknowledge, revere and adore God's mercy, in its best revelation, which was the dawning splendor of Christian hope and Christian truth. We need but revert to the Scriptures for the record of the grandest declaration of divine power, which it has been given to man to con ceive. '"In the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent, from God, into a city of Galilee, called Nazareth, to a virgin whose name was Mary. And the angel, being come in. said unto her,' Hail, full of Grace, the Lord is with thee : blessed art thou among women.' This, we repeat. is the preface to one of the grandest exertion.ed i.omnipotence. Grander than the act of God, thinkiag earth and seas, suns and stars, beasts and man, into existence, out of a clhaotio ian. Grandler. infinitely rander. becalsne he willed Himself, through His own suspension of His own laws and through the appointed agency of the virgin, free fromn sin. und, therefore, " full of grace," to be bemmed in, to be "involved," as bt. Anugustin baa it, in the clay with which He had originally wrapped the.frail creature of His hand. Read that opening and its sequel,-la tht luminous records. o( the inspired pemnanw What a see I What a dialogue and what a conclusion "I '- ole side the angel of God announcing the intentions of supernal ameroy; on the otb erMary, i' her Virgin shrinking ness, resolving the tremendous mystery of the inoeanation and coasnermnating, by one act of obedient hmiflity ,the eternal destinies of the world. She yp.lds to the message with a lowliness ofbearing, with a sobriety of speech, which leaves room for no other, feeling than an overpowering sense of the immensity of the mystery, all in all suffiioent for itself and for the end for whieh it was merelfully devised. Look at the pioture from the mejd limner's hand. "In the sixth month"l This is the sixth month of Elisabeth, her. precursor's pregnancy. This sixth month, the divinely determined period for the Incarnation of the Word, In Mary's womb, falling on the 25th of March, marks "the fulness orf days," so often alluded to in the older Scriptures, as the ma turity of God's promises-of the hopes of the Patriarebs-of the predictions of the Prophets and-of th every starting points of the Supreme law of redeeming Grace. We have tust alluded to the fore-speech of the Prophets and we now ask the reader to look to the utterances of one of God's eeers. The prophecies of His word through the lips of Daniel bear a character of historic precision and ehronologieal certainty. They utter the succession of' Kingdoms-the revolution of Empires-the coming, the death and the reign of Christ. The prophet's vision of the " Son of Mau," whom Incarnation, through the sequel of eventS, made the Son of Mary, is strikingly peculiar. That foreshadowed mys tery was revealed to him through God's mes senger, the angel Gabriel. And now, who is the messenger to the hum ble Virgin of Nazareth? The same Gabriel, the messenger of prophesy to Daniel, who is -commissioned as the messenger of fulfilment to Mary. He came to announce the coming and the manner of the coming of that " Son of Man," whose glorious visionhe had explained, fully five hiaired years before, to the prophet Daniel ; while, by the continuance of his office, be reveals to us the continuatie6 of the promise and work of God, through the succession of human centuries. His mission, however, goes far beyond the duty, which might, naturally, be supposed to be assigned to 'him. He proves, even against the reluctance of unbelief, out of what pre vious and inscrutable counsels was directed t essage which be bore in accomplishment 'of th omise made to Daniel in his vision. Follow t norel of the latter day and see whither the a 1-flight is winged. Is it to Rome, the all-con ring and all-victorious? Is it to Athens, the a arned and all-wise ? Is it to Babylon, the all-ha ty and all-proudt Is it even to Jerusalem, the a oly and tem ple-crowned T Otherwise i that fli directed -directed to an obscure corner of 'e directed to an humble village, called Naza -Nazareth, whose name was at once a proverb and a scoff. But, in yon humble Nazareth, there is a lowly roof, which shelters the hoarded treas ures of heaven, the joyful promise to earth, the secret prediction of the "Ancient of Days"; and under that lowly roof, you find a Virgin with more grandeur, wisdom and power than were in Athens and Rome and Babylon. A Virgin, whether among the races of men, or the choirs of angels, from whom the eternal light was to radiate over the world, and that "Virgin's name was Mary "I To her was the angel Gabriel sent from God, and there, in that lowly hovel, unknown to the pretended wise, the mystery was announced, the Annun ciation of which was, in a perishing world, the mastery which was to renew the faceof the earth. Six months before, the same messenger, sent to Zacharish, the High Priest of God, in the very act of offering incense and prayer, ad dresses him in words of authority and com mand, which draw a line of distinction be tween the cir.umstances and the individuals. To Zachariah he says: " I am Gabriel, who stand before God, and am sent to speak to thee and to bring thee these tidings; and, behold, thou shalt be dumb, because thou Last not believed my words, which shall be fulfilled in their time." This, certainly, is an authoritative language, if any such ever was used-the language of a superior to an inferior-the language of an ambassador of God to man. even a man invest ed with the dignity of the priesthood. The same snperiority-the dame authority-is con veyed in the statement of the same angel's in terview with the prophet Daniel: "Gabriel came," says the prophet,-" and stood where I stood and when he was come, Ifell on my face tremblisg." Now we have the identical messenger of heaven, not to a prophet-not to a High Priest in the holy livery of the Lord; but to a lowly maiden, commended by no known attribute to the regard of men-addressing her in the words of that salutation, the imperishable formunla which pays to her merits the homage of two worlds: "Hail Mary, full of grace; the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women." Now mark the contrast. Though humble in spirit, there is no prostration of the Virgin, before the angel such as marked his meeting with the prophet of God. The hom age and inclination ame, on the contrary. from the angel himself and his words are not of copimand, but of honor and all but adora tion. It is not easy to decide which is the supernal essence-whether Mary or Gabriel ? And this, indeed, because if the angel's is a virgin nature, the Virgin Mary also is an angel. But Mary is not only an angel in the body; she is also the Queen of angels, as the mother-elect of the ion of God. Hence Gabriel's language is not that addressed to a subject and, not even to an equal ; but the lan guage really due to one, made a Queen by the crowning of God's hand. He, therefore, meets her as an ambassador to a Power, in which he sees the reflex of the Power, which- has sent him. So long as human language earries a positive meaning and conveys an obvious sense; none other can ever attach, or be made to attach, to the words of homage which accompany the angelic salu tation and constitute, as it were, the very rea son thatjustifies their utterance. Enlarge the words and see how they will read: "I, Gabriel, speak to thee, from God. I am bound, Mary, to speak in this wise to thee-because thou art full of grace-because thou art blessed a.ong women. Such is my mission from everlasting Wisdom and everlasting Power and my lips may not speak otherwise. This is the mystery of the Annn ciation, absorbed in the mystery of the Incar nation. This is the fiat of the Salutation, which exalts the Virgin above every creature of God's hand; the Salutation, which, a mo ment before, on the lips of the messenger, as sured her: "the Lord is with thee;" the Balu tattoo, which brought forth Immannel and en titled us to say, through her, " the Lord is with us;" the Balutation, which is daily re newed by the faithful over the world. With the dawn of the morning, which wakes us to the weary toil; with the noon, which has al ready brought the burthen of the toil; with the setting of the sun, which warns us to cease the labors of the day; in cheering, comforting sounds, from steeple and spire, come, over the worshiped memories of the soul, the million voices of the angelus-bell, ringing in the ear of every Catholic, the blessed words of the An nunciation: " Hall, Mary, full of Grace! The' Lord is with thee I Blessed art thou, amongst women and Blessedi is the fruit of thy woub, J.sns!" We Catholics, and only we Catholics keep up, as we have kept up for centuries, the nmeuento of God's mercy and testify our grate ful worship of the Boo, through our tender de votion to the Mother. A contented mind is a continual feast. DOk5IIO CyATOLIC IA LLeSoZ, C. " Conferefoise to the Chitiesht to RocA C0r& Tina --In th6 'Baltimore xFrrdr of theb ItU inst., we find a very interesting and edify log letter from a correspondent-in the old North State. In connection with the fol lowing extracts, which we make from this letter, we would call the attention of our readers to the wonderful dispensations of Providence which, in response to the deep and sincere yearnings of a soul desirous of finding the true road of salvation, even from such a source as the impious and of ten blasphemous columns of the New York Herald, causes the light of the true faith, to be shed: It was last spring that the priest of Wil mington received a letter addressed "To any Catholic priest of Wilmington, North Carolina." The writer was a physician, living about eighty miles from the city-a man of great respectability-who bad for years been chasing "the Will o' the Wisp" of Protestantism and at last had given the race up. He had inquired of the Truth at the door of almost every meeting-house, but in vain. He stated in his letter that looking over.a number of the New York Herald, he had just read a discourse of Archbishop McClosky on the Catholic Church. He had never read a Catholic book or talked to a Catholic priest. He had given up the search after Truth and the Church of Christ, but this discourse was a torch and an authoritative guide that aroused him and boldly bade him : "Come after me," "Con-e and see." He asked for books and information. Rev. Father N. kindly corresponded with him, and the result was that in a few months the gentleman came to the city with his family and entered the Church along ttl lis wife and ehildren. His eldest daught er is now a boarder at the Convent of the Sisters of Mercy. Returning to his home, he did not hide the light of Faith in his own bosom. An extensive practice gave his zeal the opportunity of displaying it self.. Books of instruction were generous ly purchased and freely distributed to every one that could be persuaded to only learn something of the doctrines of those "of whom all manner of evil things were said, and who were hated by all men." Far and near was spread the news of the conversion of Dr. - , one of the most respected and one of the best educated gentlemen of the county. Good people a-gre led to think and to read. And among ma were the four brothers of the Doctor, with th 'rfamilies. One has already en tered the ch, whilst the others will make their prolion this week. The Bishop of North Car a, on returning to Wilmington, sent one o priests to visit this county. After riding fi iles in the cars and over twenty in a car e, the Reverend gentleman reached the do r's residence, where were gathered his imm diate relatives and some intimate acquaint ances. The.priest to most of them was a seven days' wonder. That evening Bev. Father N. baptized the children and gave an instruction to the company. Present was one of the pillars of the Methodist Church. Next morning Mass was said, at which several made their first communion. At twelve o'clock, although the weather was extremely cold, the neighbors gather ed to about the numberof fifty, in order to hear something of the Catholic Charch. The instruction lasted over an hour, and gave great satisfaction. Father N. started towards home that evening, but remained at one of the houses of the converts to in struct his neighbors. Next morning the colored people of his plantation, number ing about fifty, came also to hear the word of God. Poor negroes I They are dreaded on account of their numbers, and are re foused membership in tihe white peoples' meeting-houses, for feat lest their numbers might obtain for them a title to the.Church property. Six months ago, in the visited neighborhood, there was not one Catholic, now there are at least a dozen, and as many more, it is expected, will next week be received into the Church by the Bishop, who has already started to visit this mis sion. Since Father N's. return, he has had the satisfaction of hearing of the still fur ther fruit of his mission ; one of the most influential members of-the- -Methodist Church has become a Catholic. Conversions in Long island City.-A very interesting ceremony took place in St. Patrick's Church, Long. Island City, on Sunday, the 3d inst. On that occasion a family consisting of Mrs. Gertrude Reid line, her son John, and two daughters, Mary Ann and Mary Josephine, were re ceived into the bosom of the Church. This family were members of the Lutheran per suasion, and their conversion is hailed with pious joy by the good pastor, Father Marco. and the Catholics under his charge. -N. Y. Tablet. CathoWe Lyceum in Rochester.-The Rt. Rev. Bishop McQuade has purchased the valuable property on which the old Ex change Hotel stands, on Main street, Rochester, upon which he will have erect ed a fine building, which will contain a hall and rooms for the Catholic Associa tion,library rooms, gymnasium, etc. This will be a splendid addition to thie many fine Catholic institutions of that city. Death of27 Tromas Ferguison.-We regret exceedingly to be called upon this week to record the death of this gentleman, which occurred at his residence in this city on Saturday, March 9th, in the 45th year of his age. Mr. Ferguson was one of our most useful citizens, and one whose place among the Catholic laity it will be diffcult to fill. No man in this community was more iden tified with Catholic interests and Catholic charities than he, and his gentle connsel will be missed in the many Catholic asso ciations of which he was a member. He was President of the Upper Council of St. Vincent de Paul's Society for about eight years, and so mild and yet so firm was his administration, that, notwithstanding in the Society composed as it is of all nation alities, and having a branch in each parish in the city, nothiag occurred during that time to mar the unity so characteristic of the St. Vincent de Paul's Society, or even cause a debate of any consequence. So well did he understand the rules and spirit of the Society and so highly was hoe es teemed by all, that his opinion on any subjeet connected with the society was teaken as final. He was also member of the Catholc Orphan Board for a number of yeare.--8t. Louis Watchiman. Mission to the Colored People.-On Friday eveming, Marcdh lt, St. Joseph's Missioners of the Macred Heart opened and blessed a little church in Leadenhall street, South B lg~e. The little hbreh was used b ho tistas the presideas Uuada, who h their t service in'itaa.ahatd. It. is. now de4ieated to the Sacred Hert, after which it is called. Very lev, Dr. Vaughan blessed it, and preachedob o devotion to the Sacred Heart. Be compared the humble beginning of theoiissioners to other bum. ble beginnings that in the eourse of time became great works; he also drew a com parison between the stable at Bethlehem and the unadorned little church in which he was speaking. The ceremony closed with devotions to the Sacred Heart, which were composed of alternate prayers and hymns. The whole congregation joined in singing the hymns, and, although there was'no organ, the congregation made up for this want by the fervor with which they sang the praises of the Sacred Heart. At the cooolnsion, a hymn was also sung to St. Joseph, after which the people went away quite pleased with the first service in their new church of the Sacred Heart. Ordiwraions .at tS.
