And she did ; going every day to that poor m, cllmbing up that rough stair-way and gdin horas of her time ia this noble ner, until I was enabled to give him the ants and prepare bim for the hour of eath, whieh followed seen after his reception to theOarehb. I need not tell you bow edified I was by is wealthy and high-born lady's charity as played towards a lowly, aged slave. There is a SRCOND PHASE O OCHRISTIAN CHARITT en more beautiful than the the flrt. Faith bel that every poor, abandoned one, every helpless outcast, every sick and suffer ing oreature is a ohild of God-, child of the Heavenly Father. Ah, if we bad a little one whom we had lost, how thankful we would be f some kind friend abould rescue our poor ling, take him In from the cold night air, othe his trembling limbs and comfort his little sorrowing heart. How eagerly we would seek for an opportunity to return the Indnes done to our beloved child. In the me manner does our Heavenly Father act wards those who befriend his little ones. It Is this which makes the sweet Sisters of barity take up the orphan left to the mercy of heathen world. They supply theplace of the nts who have left it, giving it all of a ther's love for the sake of the Father in ven. I was once asked by a surgeon in e United States army to let him know the t of all the devotion displayed by priests d Sisters in momenta of danger, in times epidemics, etc. We see them at their te, faithful to the lasut, and when one falls. ther takes his place. The secret is that work for a Heavenly Master. In every k person, in every suffering member of e human family, they see a child of God. from seeking the applarse of men, they er shrink from it, for we see the zealous eat concealing his good works from the ervation of the world, while the Sister of rity hides even her name from the know. ge of the curious. I remember a few rs ago that during the prevalence of flow fever in ono of our Southern cities, a ter of Charity was stricken with the gue while discharging her duties of nurse .hbe fever ht spital. She died and was led. No monument was raised above her d, no tablet was erected to her memory. e had given all that can be given to the rvice of the poor-her youth, ber strength, r unselfish ministry, and even life itself, and t her resting-place was only marked by a ain white croee, with the simple words: "A ster of Charity." What was her namo-who was her father, ho was her mother ? The only answer to these questions was: "A Sister of Charity." She had worked for the Father in Heaven, and to Him alone she looked for recompense. And perhaps many of yon may have heard of the poor wounded soldier who had been nursed through months of pain by a Sister of ." Charity, and who, when the death-hour camne, was asked if he wished to see a clergyman. ' Iknow nothing of any religion." he replied, bnut I would like to belong to that Church hlih has those misses in the white bonnet.' d when at last a priest wees brought to the ing man, he oallkd aloud for his nurse, his ntle nnrse in "the white bonnet" in order at she might asecro him of tbo priest's ility to bring him into the same Fold as at to which she belonged. And thus we see oiese angelic women saving souls as well as ling bodies, and doing all their work thont reference to any earthly reward, be uso they know that every Christian is a ild of God, and that they, as well as their wly poor, are all children of a common ther. Thir oharacteristic of true oharity, this rinking back from praise, this avoidance ef an's approbation, lest it should lessen in the the supernatural motive which prompted charitable deed, is well shown in the his of a noble lady who petitioned the Bishop hber diocese to allow her to take from the pital one of the many sick and helpless lents, in order that she might wait upon her th her own hands. he Bishop gave his consent, and the pious y soon had the happiness of giving her own sonal care to an old woman who was bed. en and infirm. Meeting the lady some e after this, the Bishop was surprised to 4 that she wes very much diseatlsfed with patient. The poor old recipient of the y's bounty was such a grateful soul, so gned and humble, that she gave no trouble, constantly oalled down God's blesing upon noble boenefaotress. The good lady, fearing lose the merit of her charity if khe was ed and commended, besought the Bishop t ve her another patient from the bhospital. Bishop gave orders in asooordanoe with her lahes, and had the worst scold in the place t to the lady's houoe. (Here the eloquent turer went into most amusing details oon ing the long leotures the old woman gave benefsectrees, for which she was not obliged ay fifty cents, and which, if they were not harity, were most certainly very trying to ity itself.) But upon her second-meeting h the Bishop, the lady expressed herself as feotly satisfied, and as most happy in her ge. "Indeed I thought you would be,' ed the Bishop, " for I have never known equal i" S t there is still ALnovrT a PAHAe OF CHARITY appeals to the Christian heart more gly even than those which I have mon In the poor, the sick, the lowly one, bide us see onr Lord himself. , we envy the shepherds who bowed before manger, and we long to have sooompanied Magi as they presented their ofafrings of , frankincence and myrrh. We wish we d have gone up with Veronica to that ed countenance, and been privileged to pe away that sweat, and blood, and teaa. envy Joseph of Aramithea when be reelv i. ed into his arms that sacred Body, all dis. fl:nred with blood, and gore, and gaping wounds. We wish we bad been beside Him on the hill of Calvary, that we might have cooled HiS parching lipm and oomforted His sorrowing heart. And yet we can serve our Lord in His poor. We can minister to His needs in the person of the mallioted, and ease His bitter thirst by giving drink to the forlorn and destitute. It is related of St. Catherine of Sienna that one day a beggar asked her for alma when abe had none to give. He wee emaolated with dis ease and feeble with starvation, and plead with her for something with wbiobh to boy a erost of bread. The saint had no money, and although anxious to assist the poor man, abe knew not what to do. The beggar, notioing a costly jewel that hung around her neck, asked her to give him that. There was a moment's heitation-a young giri'e natural love for her precious trinket, struggled with a Christian's love for the representative of a suffering Lord. In an instant Catherine had decided, and taking off her jeweled cross she gave it to the beggar. That night, while kneeling in bar room, wrapped in an ecstasy of prayer, the saint perceived a bright light filling all the place, and in its midst stood Jesus Christ holding her jewel in his hand. "' My child," he said, " yon thought you gave this jewel to a beggar; but it was to Me yon did this deed, and I will keep this crces until the day of judgment, so as to show to all the world how much my Catherine loved Mel" Our good deeds towards the poor, our alms which we have perhaps forgotten, all our gentle charities will be one day jewels in nor Lord's dear hands to show how mush we loved Him. The sentence reserved for every Chris tian on the ioal day is made to depend upon the charity shown towards the poor. Our Lord assured as of this with His own divine lips, "I was hungry and ye gave me to eat. I was naked and ye clothed me. I was a stranger and ye took me in." And when we shall say, "Lord, when did we assee thee hungry and fed thee, naked and clothed thee t" then we shall learn that every poor oresatre to whom we gave an alms, every afflited person whom we relieved, every suffering one whom we assisted, represented Jeans Christ himself, and all that we did to the least of these was done unto Himself. But the ,TRONGEST ARGUMENT I can use in behalf of the exeroise of charity an argumeut immeasurably beyond all others is the example of our Lord himself! Soe His kindness to the little ones, permit. ting them to be brought to Him in the midst of His discourees. An arrogant and pompous man would have been annoyed by such intrusion. But as all the women flocked to Him with their lildren, le reproved those who would have driven them away, saying: "Safer them to come unto me." Who so tender, so merci!fl, so forgiving Wherever lie went He healed the sick, restored the blind, strengthened the weak and comforted the afflicted. Did Ho meet a funeral procession on Hiseway, it was only necessary to tell Him that the dead child was the only son of a widowed mother. when He raised him from the bier and gyve him brck to his mother. Ah, Son say, it was easy fur our Lard to do all this, for He was God, and He had but to speak and all was done. But it is more difli. colt to forgive injuries ; it is harder to be kind to those who acek to do us harm. Th: is something we cannot understand. Ah, my friends, although our Lord was God, He was also truly mroan. He had a heart like ours, and was in all things, sin excepted, subjected to the same feellage as we are. And yet what injories lie pardoned! What insults He for gavel No wonder it is related of St. John Gualber toe, that having one day met his brother's murderer, unarmed and unattended, he deter mined to revenge his death. The young noble. man's heart was full of vengeaucoe-revenge was sweet, and the hour he had longed for was his own at last. The murderer knew that there was little hope for him, he read it in Goalbertos' cruel eye, he saw it in the drawn and flashing blade, he felt it in the help ems condition in which he was placed. Just then the bells of the distant city rang out the call to prayer. It was Good Friday, and the mur. derer begged for life in His name who died that day. GUalbertas heard the prayer and recognized its mighty power. Could he not forgive his brother's murderer, when his Master had for given those who spilt His own most precious blood t Gaalbertus listened to the pies, finng hbis sword far from his revengeful hand and rushed away up the mountain side, where, before a crucifix, he bent his knee and bowed his head in such humility and contrition that the fieres soldier was changed into the saint. Do you, too, fly to the orucifix for strength in the hour of temptatioo, for an example in the moment of your humiliation f Oar divine Lord suffered in His most tender sympathlefs, in His most earnest feelings. On the night of His betrayal, He was wounded in His heart by the traitorous hims of Judas. A kiss, that mark of affection in every land, that symbol of friendship among every nation, was used to betray Him I What is there more sacred then a kiss, the first cares whioh a mother impriats upon her inofant's brow, the last whioh a son presses upon a mother's cheek as she lies within her cofno. That kiss which the Church has conse orated with her sanction, and with which the Bishop welcomes the newiy-crdained priest to the honors of the sanctuary-this was the means used by a false friend to insult our patient Lord, and yet we bear Him saying these most touching, most beauniful worEds: "Friend, why hast thou come " There are few who will insult a dying man the poor wretch who hangs upon a gallows hears words of sympathy and tones of pity, but our divine Lord was not even spared the bitter taunt, the insulting epithet, the cruel sneer. As He hung upon the crose, He was deonied even a cooling drink, and was mocked and derided by his persecutors; and yet He could force His dry and bleeding lips to say : "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do!' Dearly beloved, the example of Jesus Christ in the exerole of all the sweet charitie of life, in His mercy to the poor, in Hie s kind nee to the sick, in Hie geltleesm to the wioked, nl His forgiveness to the evil-doer, is that wblobh we should follow; and if Charity, whioh ptes on so many varied phasse only to win our hearts, hal eallet as in her glorious servioe, we mare assured that she will lead us safely through this earthly pilgrimage until abe steeds beside us at the foot of that throne wheane shall come the ooneoling greeting: " Well done, thou good and faithful servant, enter thou into the Joy of thy Lord." icommemcated.l It. Agnes' east in St. Stephen's Church. The ,s eal ceremony of the blessing of the infants and little hobildren will take.place in St. Stephen's oabroh, Napoleon Avenue, at 10 o'olook to-morrow, (Monday) St. Agnes' day. We have the pleasure cf annocnclog that Bishop Grosh has kindly Jnnsented to preach on the occaisou and give dolemn Benedietion to the little ones after Maes. The Bishop ex pressed great delight at the opportunity of be ing preseo at this ceremony, which be con siders a most beautiful act of religion. He knows that he will be reminded in a moeet striking manner of the words cf the Gspel : "Then were little children presented to him, that he should lay his hands upon them." Math. xix. 13. What is more touehing or consoling for priest or blebhop, what can re mind him more of the grandeur of his heavenly mission on earth, than to see the smallest of his floek repeatedly gathering round him to seek the choicest blessings of God through his fatherly hands. For his blessing is given in the name of the Churob, through the merite of Jeans Christ, and comes from God himmelL Come one, come all then; bring your little ones from every parish if you will, that they may receive a blessing so preoione, and let us pray that it may abide with them and us forever. As usual each obhild will be expected to make a little offering for St. Stephen's new churob. "Sr. 8Taram's.n Catholic Total Abstinnce Society Items Rev. M. Kelly, S.
