SKETCH OF THE LIFE

Blessed Virgin Mary. Many were the de

oh about her, and to instill into the
of all the same love for, and oonfidence
her that he himself enjoyed. He would
omit reciting the rosary, no matter how
,bow fatigued. how sick or exhansted he
ight be, the mosary never left him either night t
day. May we not say that Mary loved him
y dearly, since she took him, her loving eo,

ather Deffy was a true tRedemptorist. His
.efor hie vocation was truly admirable. No
is, no trial, no temptation, could diminish It
theleast. He gleried in being a Redemp'o
-t, a son of St. Alpbonsus He attributed all
e good eff oted through his instrumentality,
nd the visible blessing of God on his labors, s
the fact that he belonged to the Congrega- a
ion of the Most Iloly Redeemer. The only I
hing that would make him tremble was the a
ear of losing his vocation. Every year during
is ten days' retreat he noted down all the t
lets of the role he had transgressed in the t
past year, and imade strong practical resol tions E
teamend Aid notsatilsed with this, he made
most strenuous efforts to correct his least a
faults. He possessed in a remarkable degree ti
two of the most necessary qualities for a Re
demptorist, vs : the spirit of obedience and a
love for Communniry life. He never liked to be h
an exception even when be was sick. He loved o
to assist at all the exercises in common, for be v
wanted to be with his brethren in religion on t(
11 oecasions when the role prescribed that
hey should perform exercises in Community. a,
hen with the students and novices be was as a
e of them, and delighted to join with them b
n the performance of their spiaitual exeroisee. w
van when he was so aick atnd weak as to be i,
-nale to walk. he would yet manage to drag c,
himself to the place where the Community were ec
aseembled, so anxious wls he to be with them. oi
A Father who had long been his superior testi- io
fleB of him as follows: " We all knew his love tr
for oomwpunity exercises. I often requested td
him, when be was eick, to rema'n in bed and at
take a longer rest, to make the exercises in his H
room. but he always answered: 'Please, i
Father, allow me to come to the oratory as al
long as I can, for I love to be with the Com m
manity.' And come he would, though he could
sometimes scarcely stand on his feet." at
He was not less remarkable for his spirit of at
obedience. He always showed exteriorly the oil
greatest respect to his sunperiors and the most oc
-bmisalve attention to their commands; and tb
Interiorly he venerated them as holding God's at
lace towards him. He on all occasions Ci
wed himself to be sincere and open-hearted at
them. Whenever be found it necessary, he C4
cold humbly state his reasons for differing le
th them. Thi he would do with due respect an
with a holy indifference as to what they th
gbt decide. On this subject, the Father hi
a quoted gioes the following testimony: in
easn arai say that Father Dofly was one of is
Smost obedient religious I ever met. He
variably asked my opinion in matters even C
f the least importance, though he need not to a
have so done. What sbaU I say of his zeal, bin on
harity f We all know what it cost him when us
he had to give up preaobhing, hearing confes- Cs
ons, etc. Nothing but the fear of acting in1
galnst the will of God could restrain him. I
ave never found a more tender conscience, a an
ter simplicity, or a deeper humility, than wa
Father Doffy." Sul
His well known charity towards his brethren Th
religion made him beloved, for he made in
masef all to all. Among the students he was w
erished, especially by sunbch as belonged to ai
is class. He loved his brethren not only in 1
general, but each one in particular. His love lat
did not consist merely in words, bhot proved Fo
Itself by deeds, for be was ever ready to do a the
favor to others. -He sympathized with them, All
attended to their wads, and constantly en- He
deavored to show them that he loved them. ti,
His love was sincere; he abhorred fl ittery, for an
he never omitted to privately admonish them pr
of their faults, but always in the most loving tac
ad tender manner'. If a harsh word escaped des
rom his lips at such times, he would either ask see
ardon for it, or would make amends in some firs
other more proper manner. Re would never an
speak ill of any one, nor would he allow others the
to do so in his presence. None were more for- ma
giving than be, for he would never show the uo
least resentment to those who had Injured kni
him. He dearly loved his native country, Ire- and
land. He gloried in being an Irishman. e wih
was likewise warmly attached to the land bt can
his adoption. But he was not so narrow- bit
minded as to be able to perceive good only in ki
bin own country and countrymen, and find htr
fault with every other nationality. Whenever Isi
called upon to do so, he preached in German. the
and felt proud of being able to do co. Though tho
not a master of that language, he often, of his par
own accord, gave conferences in German to the
members of the Community, in order tha'tlhe
lay brothers, who understood English very C
imperfectly, might not be deprived of the Cat
frnittfof the conference. of
What distinguished Father I)ffy so much, pre
and rendered him snob a universal favorite, fati
was his ardent zeal for souls. All his actions, ate
not having in view his own immediate sanct ti at
cation, were performed for the honor and glory
of God and the salvation of souls. He loved t~ o,
preach and give inetructions. He never refusned rotW
to preach except when physically incapable,
and no matter how fatigued and exhausted he Ili
might be, he always joyfully took the place of ent
others in preaching. If anything could make the
him sad, it was to forbid him to preach. and
During the last years of his life, he often Ham
dragged himself to the pulpit to perform that eta
duty of the ministry. He always felt happy e
when oalled upon to baptize or to administer A
any of the other sacraments. He loved child- int
ten. The school which he established with so the
mooh dilfoulty is a saufficient proof of this. Be of
always returned the salute of even the smalles thre
and poorest child. He was never so happy as getl
when engaged in preparing children for their Elit
First Communion. When they made their re- Wi
treat he remained all day prayiog with them,
instruooting them and exhorting them. During
the last years of his life, when his strength had
begUn to fail, another Father was appointed to ll
perform this duty. Father Doeify earnestly im- t
rtuned s perior to give him the work. Abo
Sperior replied: "Father, I would will. Row
inglydo so, butyou cannot moderate ysurzeal the
hthe children, and I cannot take upon my- boy,
i-the responsibility of hastening your death a
imposing snch a hard task upon you." yard
Ser Deify of course yielded, but it was a play
of great pain to him to let another per- endd

to pour Into their grieving hearts the balm of
w spiritual consolation. His obarity towards the
p ,or knew no other bounds than those imposed
upon him by the vow of poverty. If anything
could ever cause him to regret having made I
this vow, it was that it often prevented him
f om assisting the needy and indigent. As be
could not do all be wished for the distressed I
S.R personally, he promoted all works of oharity
as much as lay in his power. Many yet living
remember the deep and practical interest he
of this took in the formation and progress of theCon- I
ferenoe of St Vincent de Paul in St. Alphonsus'
parish. and in the ereotion and support of St.
Vincent's Home for destitute boys. Had oir

No living mother. In his preaching ano conver- n
sh it sation he would often denounce vice in the s
ip' arstrongest and most powerful terms, but it was v
d all always done without violence, without bitter- fl
slity, ness, without personal allusions. No spoke v
bore, severely, but it was in the language of a good e
raga- and loving father chasrening the children he d
only loved so nearly. Wherever be went he spoke
tthe and acted as a minister of God, and always
ring managed to turn the subject of the converse- e
the Lion to as to enable him to remind people of b
the their duty to God andto their immortal souls. li
Lione Persons he suspected of neglecting their reli L
ade giones duties were always sure to be asekd, on y
least meeting him, after the usual compliments, if c
gree they were faithfol to their duties. If they h
Re- were not, he would earnestly exhort them to
and amend. He acted in the same manner towards a
o be his Protestant friends, reminding them of the a'
wved one true Church, out of which there is no sal- d
r be vation. This he however did in the kindest CI
1 on terms. d
that lie was devoted to the souls in Purgatory, is
lity. and recited as maony prayers for them as he at
is as could. The ' Raculta of Indulgences" was
bhen ihi favorite prayer book. He took it with him
ied. wherever he went, because, as he need to say t
. be in his own way, le could, by saying the prayers f
Irag contain,d in this book in pref-rence to those ne
were contained in others, always kill two birds with pi
tn. one stc.ie, i e, obtain graces for himbelf and th

old Before closing, I must not omit mentioning ri
anotber good work in which Father Duffy took Pt
t of an active part. In public and private he in- pt
the sisted on the necessity of good books and peri- f
lost odicals. He was a strong advocate of the Ca- vi
and tholio Press. He gave the weight of his infln
ad's enoe and energy for the establishment of a
one Catholio newspaper in New Orleans. He was e
ted one of the founders or the MORNING STAR AND tb
he CATaoLIC MseSaNGER, and did as much, at Hi
rng least, as any other clergyman to spread it ao
'eot among the Catholics of New Orleans. He sa
hey therefore well deserved the tribute paid to th
her him by that paper at his death. In the edition i
0o issased after his death the whole paper was put fro
of is mourning with the foll3wing tribute:
He "In memory of the Rev. John B. Duffy, th
Vn C.88 R., for twenty-three yearsin New Orleans Cr

The edition of the MORNING STAR oootainiog
a an account of Father Duffy's death and funeral
fan was much larger than usual, but was quite in- caL
sufficient to supply the demands of the people. ual
ren The account in consequence was republished ani
tde in pamphlet form, and several thousand copies inc

fTHE NEXT ISSUE.
The Chicago Tribune thinks that with

Ce in- cases the next issue between the two great
ople. national parties will be the comprehensive
abed and absorbing question of Taxation, which
opies includes the administration of the General,
