PORPHYRY, BISHOP. 8o At the age of twenty-five, Porbphyry, the rich citisen of Thessaloniea, left the world the for one of the great religions hosles in the desert of Scete. Here he remained Ave and es, and then finding himself drawto a tur ore solitary life pased into ~eatUine, dee -here he spent a similar period s the in I 'sveesret penance, till ill beslth obliged him wh imodeate his austerities. He then made see ol e in Jerusalem, and in spite o hi get j t visited the Holy Places every day; mo Ilting, says his biographer, so little of mel hiaeness that he seemed to be afflicted in pre other body d not his own. Abot le oirUhi o put it into his heart to sell be ail and give to the poor, and then reli for the sacrifioe restored him by a i ito perfect health. In 393 he wasGo odlned priest, and intrusted wish the care di of. the relics of the True Cross; three years pre M:Mr, in spite of all the resistance his fami- Fnt .~vould make, be was consecrated Bishop F "6i itssop. That cily was a hot-bed of pa ,'a'r m, and Porphyry found in it an ample of ,epe for his apostolic seal. His labors e .ad the miracles which attended hem of- the beeted the conversion of many ; and an im- art penal edict for the destruction of the tem- o gplee, obtained through the influence of St. lae John Chrysoetom, greatly strengthened his rel bands. He lived to see his diocese for ofi the omost part clear of idolatry, and died fol A a. D. 420. des When St. Porphyry first went to Gazs d, he found there one temple more splendid rel than the rest, in honor of the chief god. on When the edict went forth to destroy all to tiaes of heathen worship, St. Porphyry off determined to put Satan to special shame ity where he bad received specital honor. A Christian church was built upon the site, san its a proach was paved with the mar ble of the heathen temple. Thus every I worshipper of Jesus Christ trod the relics any of idolatry and superstition under foot Aft each time he went to assist at the Holy no February 27. At ST. BRIGID, PATRONESS 01 " )- Pc Brigid was born of noble psi aisat tht Faugher, near Dnodalk, a few y " tbier as the great St. Patrick had arr; ias his e" mission to Ireland. As the eai S* 2 then " was, she took part in all the b esnbali Bi duties, and thus her sanctity was l,ire- th vealed. One day, after milking t0s e, th she gave the contents of her pail s3 some tbe poor persons who were passing, a&L then, b fearing her mother's anger, prayed God to fe make good the loss. On reaching home he Brigid's pail was found to be fuller than those of the other maidens. From her an childhood she gave everything she could lbe lay her hands on to the poor; and her hr father, who found his goods, even to his an sword, thus disposed of, determined to be- m stow her in marriage without delay. Her th beauty found her many suitors, but Christ an was her only love, and she prayed to be al- ca ways His. Her desire was granted. A at rapid disease disfigured her, as it seemed, d for life, and she was free to take the veil. Ah Yet when Brigid, prostrate before the altar, hi consecrated herself to God, her scars and hi wounds vanished, and her face shone anew with a surpassing comeliness, giving her the very lineaments and likeness of the gc Holy Mother of God. She chose for her cell a hollow oak-tree, hence called Kill- as dare or Kildare, and here she founded the di frst Irlsh nunnery. She died in the year 1S. 01 At a Synod held near Kildare, says an old legend, during the lifetime of the Saint, one of the fathers declared that be fa had seen a vision, and that the Blessed Vir- m gin would on the morrow appear among them. On the next day Brigid arrived with her companions, and the father im mediately exclaimed, "there is the Holy Mary whom I saw in my dream." From that she was called "Alters Maria" and P "Mary of the Irish." And so pure was she S in spirit, so holy in every action, so mod- tl set, so gentle, so filled with mercy and com- p passion, that to the last hour of her life a, saintly men did not cease to regard her as o a living image in soul and body of Mary the r Mother of God. t e February 2- . . ST. JOSEPH OF LEONISSA. f Joseph was born in the States of the a Church, A. D. 1556. His parents dying I early, he was placed in the charge of an I unole, who, after a time, preposed to him c most honorable marriage. But Joseph t ad resolved to live always a virgin .and I Being to Assial, became a Capuchin. His 1 bedience was perfect; he received com da bareheaded and on his knees. He I as always recommending himself to the rayers of others, and in spite of perpetual 1 nance was never downcast or sad. His E periors, seeing his great love for souls, eat him to Turkey to preach to the Chris an galley-slaves. Crucifix in hand, be i taught the poor captives to unite their suf erings with those of their Lord, and by I is patience and gentleness gained many a Sardened soul. With the same saving im age he consoled the Turks, struck down by I a devouring plagnue. and converted num- a berstothe Faith. For this he was tried, imprisoned, and at last hung on a gibbet 1 by one hand and one foot, but the sentence I was changed to exile before the crown was won. He spent the rest of his life near his birthplace. preaching, visiting the prisons, and founding hospitals for the sick. A long and secret martyrdom, from a most painful eancer, at length completed, in 1G12, the unflnished sacrifice. After death the wounds and scars disappeared from his body, which assumed an unearthly beauty, rand emitted a most sweet fragrance. 8- t. Joseph had a most teuder devotion to the image of Jesus crucified, Ile never preached without a crucifix in his hand, and often spent entire nights beforeit. To wards the end of his life, when about to sufer the operation for the removal of his canser, the bystanders wished him to be bound. But he fixedhb el i) t ushe eros., ud saidu , "ThinO tI b;so'est-- this will keep me still bat at ,ta au eords could do;" and so, gaslag oc Jscs crusfied, saying over mand eve *galt, "Holy Mary, pray for us, miserabl eclas) d sinners," he bore the pain witohex star mur. ST. OSWALD, BISHOP. Oswald was of a noble Saxon family, and was endowned, says the monkish chronic ler, with a very rare and beautiful form of body and with a singular piety of soul. Hal was brought up by his uncle, St. OJo, J Archbisbop of Canterbury, and was chosen, while still young, dean of the secular can- 4 ons of Winchester, then very relaxed. His I attempt to reform them was a failure; and 4 he saw, with that infallible instinct which so often guides the Saints in eritical times, 1 that the true remedy for the corruptions of 1 the clergy was the restoration of*the mon- ý astic li e. He therefore went to France, I and took the habit of St. Benedict; but re turned only to receive the news of Odo's death. He found, however, a new patron in St. Dunstan,-unow Metropolitan, through whose influence he was nominated to the see of Worcester. To these two Saints, to. - gether with Ethelwold of Winchester, the monastic revival of the tenth century is mainly due. Oswald's first care was to de prive of their benefiees the disorderly clerics, whom he replaced as far as possi ble by regulars, and himself founded seven religious houses. As Archbishop of York a like success attended his efforts; and God manifested His approval of his seal by discovering to him the relics of his great predecessor, St. Wilfrid, which he rever ently translated to Worcester. He died Feb. 29th, 992. St. Oswold, considering that in the hearts of the secular canons there were yet some sparks of vidtue, would not at once expel them, but rather entrapped them by a holy artifice. Adjoining the cathedral he built a church in honor of the Mother of God, causing it to be served by a body of strict religious. He himself assisted at the Divine office in this church, and ibhis example was i followed by the people. The canons, find iog themselves isolated, and their cathedral deserted, chose rather to embrace the religious life than to continue to injure not only their own souls, but to be a mockery to their people by reason of the contrast offered by their worldliness to the regular ity of their religious brethren. March 1. ST. DAVID, BISHOP. St. David,son of Sant, prince of Cardigan and of Non, was born in that country in the t fifth centary, and from his earliest years gave himself wholly to the service of God. He began his religious life under St. Pauli nus, a disciple of St. Germanus. Bishop of Auxerre, who had been sent to Britain by Pope St. Colestine, to stop the ravages of t the heresy of Pelagius, at that time abbot, as it is said, of Bangor. On the reappear ance of that heresy, in the beginning of the sixth century, the bishops assembled at i Brevi, and, unable to address the people that came to bear the word of truth, sent for St. David from his cell to preach to them. The Saint came, and it is related that as he preached the ground beneath his feet rose and became a hill, so that he was Sbheard by an innumerable multitude, The n 'eresy fell under the sword of the Spirit, and the Saint was elected Bishop of Caer d leon on the resignation of St. Dubricins; but he removed the see to Menevia, a lone eand aeeert spot, where he might with his monks serve God away from the noise of ar the world. He founded twelve monasteries, and governed his Church according to the canons sanctioned in Rome. At last, when about eighty years of age, bhe laid himself , down, knowing that his hour was come. As his agony closed, our Lord stood before him in a vision, and the Saint cried out: d"Take me up with Thee," and so gave up higesoul on Tuesday, March 1st, 561. St. David purged the land of heresy, and e governed his people in the ways of God; diligent, laborious, and constant in prayer, as well as in the observance of regular 1e discipline. At matins he received the joy ful news that his death was at hand, and r the whole country round was moved. Then, on the following Sundayhe sang the High Mass, preached, and blessed the people, e saying to them: "Be joyful, and keep the faith; on Tuesday I shall go the way of my fathers." March 2. ST. CHAD, BISHOP. A Chad was abbot of Lastingham, near Whitby. He was well read in the Holy Scriptures, and practised what be learnt therein. Contrary to the canons, he was ( placed in the see of York during the ab sence of St Winfrid, and it became the duty of St. Theodore, as Primate of England, to 1 request him to withdraw. Chad declared r that he willingly resigned an office of which be had always deemed himself d unworthy, and which obedience alone had forced him to accept. St. Theodore soon o after appointed him bishop of the Mercians. I He fixed his see at Lichfield, and for two a years and a half spent himself in the care c of his flock. Like the apostolic bishops of f the North, Chad lived in humble poverty, making his visitations on foot. Amidst . his unceasing labors he continued to yearn for the peace of his cloister, and often refreshed his soul Ly retiring to a monas tery, and meditating on the eternal Sab- i bath, for which he sighed. Here he repair ed when warned that his end was near; and from his beloved cell his soul winged its flight to heaven, A. D. 673. His shrine in Lichfield Cathedral, was the scene of countless miracles till its desecration by the sacriligious reformers. The Saint's body, however, was providentially saved by some devout Catholics, and it now reposes under the high altar of the cathe dral of Birmingham. Seven days botore St. Chad's death, a brother in the monastery heard voices singing most sweetly. He listened, and noticed that the unseen choir seemed to rest over the cell of the holy bishop. St. Chad soon after this occurrence summoned the brethren together, and asked for their prayers, since in seven days he would de part. The mysterious chants were, he said, the voices of angels, who had come to call him to that heavenly reward which he had so long desired. On the seventh day the holy man died, and his soul was seen going up to heaven in the company of St. Cedd, his brother, and that of many angels. fMarch 3. ST. GILBERT, ABBOT. After many years of study in England and France, Gilbert was ordained priest in i1123, and received from his father, who wa ...ord of the manor, a rich benefice in Lincolnshire. Save a small sum for his i own use, Gilbert gave his revenues to the poor, and by unwearying care brought his I flock to a state of almost monastic discip line. After s while lie felt inspired to build a small Louse beside the church for seven maidens who wished to dedicate Shs...-~ea- to Gnd. Others followed their example, and Gilbert soon found himself I at the head of a rising community, which - he thought at first of offering to the great f Cistercian Order, then spreading in Eag land. By the advice of St. Bernard, how ever, he instituted them as a separate body, and :eoerporated therewith a community of canons regular. Such was the origin of the Gilbertines, the only religionusOrder ever founded in England. Silence, medita tion, and manual labor form the chief points of the rule, which was approved by Eugenics III, Gilbert's work now seemed complete, but his trials were yet to come. Some of his relaxed subjects shamefully alandered him to his bishop and to the Pope. Gilbert committed his cause to God and waited patiently the result. At length his innocence was declared, and the privi leges of his Order confirmed. Before his death be saw 700 canons and 1500 nuns following the rule for which he had suffered so muoh. Just when Gilbert's character was defi nitely cleared and his Order established. another charge was brought against him. He was accused of sending alms to St. Thomas of Canterbury, then in exile. The charge, as it happened, was false; and the judge, who greatly reverenced Gilbert, offered to release him at once if he would but plead innocent This, however, he firmly refused to do, preferring to risk both his own hanshment and the destruction of his Order rather than by denying the charge to appear for one moment as the adversary of the Church's champion. At last, by the king's order, without having spoken one word in his own defence, he was set free. During a recent mission given in Chicago by Fathers Coughlan, Bonige and several other Jesuits, 0000 persons approaohbed the Sacra ments, 22 converts were received into the Church, 181 adults were confirmed, and 1000 men joined the Apostleship of Prayer.
