DIOCESE OF NATCHEZ.
William Henry Elder, by the grace of God and the favor
of the Apostolic See, Bishop of Natches.
To the Very Rev. and Rev. Clergy, and to the faithful
Laity of the Diocese:
Dearly Belored-The regulations for Lent in
the Diocese of Natohez will be the same as
those of the Archdiocese of New Orleans. Meat
is forbidden on all Wednesdays and Fridays,
and on Saturday of Ember Week, which fills
We exhort you to a more generous devotion
his Lent than usual, because of the more
reseing dillcoulties of the whole Church, and
f our own necessities, spiritual and material.
We desire particularly very fervent and fre
aent prayers for our Holy Father the Pope,
ause he is the head against whom " the
ntiles are raging and the people devising
in things." And just at this time our
othren throughout the world are preparing a
anifeetation of love and service to him, for
e Jubilee of his episcopal consecration. The
let day of next May will be the fiftieth anni
ersaryof his election, and the 3rd day of June I
e fiftieth anniversary of his coneecration as
In the ease of any Bishop, and still more of 1
ny Sovereign Pontiff, the completion of a half t
ntury in the sac-ed office of Bishop is well I
orthy of celebration, but in this case there
very particular motives why every one of t
e should take his part in the celebration.
The wonderful duration of his reign as Pope,
Iready thirty-one years-six years longer than F
as fallen to any Pope in the eighteen centuries J
seed since the death of St. Peter-eonsiderrd F
n connection with the extraordinary events
hat have occurred in his pontificate, and the t
resent strange and unsettled condition of iise
litical and social world, these indicate very d
trongly an especial intervention of GJd in c
uman affairs, and forcibly admonish us to t
eep ourselves in His favor, and to array our- t,
elves manfully on His side in this great con- "
lot between good and evil. a
All the enemies of justice and truth, all the
euret organizationtagainst order and au- or
hority, all the advocates of man's independ. tl
ace of God, all the flatterers of man's intel- a
eotaal pride,-ln a word, all the hosts of
evolutionism, communism, materialism and or
alse ecience,-are assailing the Church, as the at
okuowledged bulwark of God's teaching and al
utbority among men. With a diabolical in- in
tinot they direct their most furious and perti- th
scions attacks against the Head, through se

hurch, His Vicar on earth, the Sovereign m;
But in assailing him, it is his children, the at
ithfal, whom they are seeking to destroy. It
as for the souls of men that the Son of God fo
me man and died on the cross, and in His of
Ith established His Holy Church. an
That men may come to possess and enjoy nil
in heaven, is the very end for which our
was created, and for which it is still pre. of
ed. "God will have all men to be saved, at
d to come to the knowledge of the truth." er
For this porpose He made His Cathol;c
hurch, tha a:ll who wish may find in her a the
ear light t., know His truths, and abundant the
ace tbotriagthen them in keeping His laws. the
The object of the devil, then, when he in- of
iree bad men to assault the Church, is the the
truction of souls. He wishes to hinder men to
m believing and obeying her, so that they I
ay have no light to expose his lies, and no yor
ace to subdue their evil passions; and thus life
unbelief and c rruptiog they may fellow his goc
lig in this world and share his punishment eta
the next. Y
These attacks upon the Church, then, are you
tacks on our souls, to destroy our means of oth
rnal happiness; and consequently every he
otive of self-preservation urges as to throw infi
reelves with all our energies into her defence, F
d, above all, the defence of its Sacred Head, the
rough which they hope to give it the most eve
eatual blows. the
The highest obligations of gratitude and and
nor likewise call upon us to exert all our "
anhood in behalf of the great and generousne now

ttling in our defence and suffering every mu:
trage in deeds and words, yet holding firmly in l
the helm of St. Petec's Ship, to save us from faig
lug swallowed up in the waves of falsehood M
d iniquity that are dashing all around us. thrt
Let no one of is, then, fail to unite with our and
ethren throughout the Church in a generous be b
Owal before the world of our devotion to the p
ioar of Christ and in active asaistance to him G
-iost his enemies. the
The chief assistance-that which be most dc
ree-every one of us can give. Whether ric't
poor, old or young, learned or irumple, overy
eof us can pray, and every suncocessive day we A
a repeat at least a short prayer for our Holy ei

On Saturday, the 3rd inst., at the St. Al
phonsus' Convent of Mercy in this city, the
d all ceremonies of Profession and Reception were
fence witnessed by a crowded assemblage. The
white veil of Reception was conferred upon
leted Mise Mary Reel and Miss Lzzie English, the
the former of whom took the name of Sister Mary
try Francis and the latter that of Sister Mary
day, Genevieve. Toe ceremony of Profession, during
ding which the black veil is given, was performed
late, in favor of Miss Mary Kearney (Sister Mary
fore- Evangelist) and Mdlle. Amelie Generalle (Sts
ter Mary Dolores).
the To Right Rev. Bishop Gibbons, of Rich
mond, uflioiated in the Maas and ceremonial,
e of after having addressed the candidates in words
of of wibd.dm which we regret that it is not in our
power to re-produce.
tion The Right Rev. orator told themi that b -
s a lily was the foundation of all virtue, and
tlUt t at any superstructure of perfection not based
fhan ou that would be like a house built on saud; t
would certainly fall some day. Ite then dwelt
re- ot that divine promise in which it is said:
and 'Every ono that bath left house, or brethren, or
the sister,, or father, or mother, or wife, or children,
or lands fir my name's sake, shall receive an
hundred fold and shall possess lifeeverlasting."
:rt Phis he illustrated by thespecial promise made
or at the same time to St.. Peter and the other
ink Apostles: "You also shall sit upon twelve seats
the judging the twelve tribes of Israel."
Itefore concluding, the Bishop took occasion
get to refer to the erroneous impressions enter
Utg tained by some worldly persons concerning the
are Religious state. Such persons picture it as a
of life of cold, austere severity in which all
the natur.,l feelings and affections are repressed
'll and inltordioted. This, lie said, was as false in
cc, a:t as it would be aroing in theory. God is
" the author of both grace and nature, and there
ca:n be no clashing bet xe- tr!,h laws of these
;l two orders. On the rn,'rary, natural virtnes

ita i Rev. Fathers Gles-en and Faivre, C.SS It , as
1 ' sisted in the ceremonial, while Fathers Kenny
and Allen, of this city, and Rev. Father Stmirh,
of Arkansas, were present. The vocal mass
one of Mercadante's-was sweetly sung by
ladies of the community, and the altar was
resplendent with the lights and flowers which
ie the Sisters know how to dispose so effectively.
It would be superfluous in us to wish a
b" life of happiness to the new Religions; we
ce could see its promise assured in the light which
is beamed from their joyful faces and which
k. seemed to rest as a radiance around all the
k, inmates of the House.
Religious Reception at the Convent of the Holy
te Family (Colored).
ad On the Feast of the Puritication of the
at Blessed Virgin Mary, a very interesting and r
k, impressive ceremony took place at the convent -
, of the Holy Family (~olored). Three young
ladies received the holy habit and veil and
entered lupon their duties as novices. The t
u modest but neat little chapel of the convent Ag
was beautifully decorated with flowers on the or
o occbaion, and was crowded by relatives and
I friends of the young lady Postulants. At 3:30 to
+ o'clock the Postulants entered the chapel in H
procession, dressed as brides with bridal
f veils and wreaths. The little girls who at
y tended them as angel guardians were also
dressed in white with pink and blue ribbons.
As the procession entered the otmoir sang the
a Veni Creator Spiritus, and at its conclusion 55
the Very Rev. Father Superior asked each
Postulant, "My daugbter, what do you ask ?' F
I and each one replied that she solicited the holy
habit and the favor of being tried in the
lpractice of Christian virtues and in the ob.
servance of the rules and constitution.
After pra er, thanking God for thus inspiring
them ii their happy choice, the Very lRev. At
Father Superior asked if they persevered in fe.
this demand, and being answered that they
renewed it and hoped by the grace of God to
persevere iii this state of life, they retired from
the chapel to lay as:de the white dresses and JC
