Pastoral letter f-r the Lenten Season of 1877, Addres.ed to the Clargy and Laity of Perugia by His Eminence Cardlual Gioachto Peec, now Pope Leo XtLL. [Translated from the Paris Unlveres or the Freeman's Joui al.i The permanent duty that our ministry imposes on us, dearly beloved brethren, of announcing to you the truth, has become more imperative in our day by reason of your needs, wuich have become more ur gent in these evil times in which we live. We must speak to you that we may en lighten your minds, which it is sought to obacure by false and seductive doctrines, and to put you on your guard against max ims that are openly propagated, and which are eminently dangerous. In the first place our words mast allay the confusion that men are endeavoring to establish among ideas, to such an extent, that one no longer knows exactly what should be rejected and what should be accepted as good and just. For, dearly beloved, the warfare that is waged against God and IIis Church is especially to be feared, because it is not always conducted fairly, but rat!'i with unto and hypocrisy. If the impious by whom we are surrounded always openly decla-ecd the object they desired to attain, our task wou'd be a much easier on,; atd, on the ctiler :hand, tile faithfol, by the very enormity of their in tur~tionsa wenll be deterreuld from any heed to their seduceri.. But tin';i s are not doa , is tbhi wA:y; men make use of deceitful wordam of lan guage that i ;..it uniq-oe a;nd precise in its sense, anil ta n', witlout di fining tel is, they are given :cs foil to the curiosity of the ptulic, and they boud upon them so many c:tadl ,s, a it cair', flctu which they pour their furi~ts voLiey u-.o, the Chcech, her ministei s and her doctrines. Numerouos adi striking exarip.. if tihie artifice may be addnced, but to menticr, only one word that on'eilihverv make such frequent us, of, who does not know, dearly beloved, that otbo word CIVILIZATION is everywhere repeated, atd the claim set up that between :1" and the Church there exists a bitter hatred and an irieconcilable enmity. This word, which, by itself, is very vague, and which those wvLo use it are very care ful never to define clearly, has become the scourge that belabors our shoulders, the icstrunment used for beatirg down the most holy institutions, the wedge that opens the way for the mout deilorable excesses. If the Word of God and of His repre. sentatise here on earth are spoken of in derision, it is civilization, we are told, that requires it. It is civilization !hlt wants to restrict the number of cho=i-hes and of eacred ministers, and which, at the same time,'asks that places fur tie 3ommlssion of sin be multiplied. It tl civiLzation that clamors for theatres bereft of all sense and modesty. In the name of civilization all restraint is removed fron the most exorbitant usury and from dishonest gains, and it is in the name civilization, too, that a vile press corrupts the mind and that art, prostitrt ting itself, offends the ye n itlh infamous statues and ope.s the way to the corrup tion of hearts. Under the cover of a de ceitful word, that ritee cnp like a venerated banner, tile poeis)ned flood ti ),w freely along, and saInd the loost distracting ru morn and the overtutrow of idto., it e.er:1s to be accepted thlt it is our farlt that civ ilization ha:s tot made 'rei.attr iproegres ai'd that it has cot Iseelied tthe .ightl;. of d- J tni.e: 1 .: !- e a rTg~r: L. wihat teen want to c !: tlo 'trugtle of civilizatuoi:, but chich .,hi uld ,e mur; pino'ie ly cl.ed the vio,lcnt p' rCteo. in. of tl:e C(!hrm h. You wit! :' t be r ,'privd tles, d, irly beloved, :i, ia adre si: g yvi,: our ll'astoal Letter, ne is tiet.i'mr'-• ,n 'ho aplr,'ah of Lent, we e..ter into a I;:'gtLEy die nlem. Ln of this question oi civil:zatin s:o as to :;rove to you, by plai. facts, that eve.y blessing this civiliz:,ton expreasts has come to us in the past through tie r-tdiumn of the Church, and that it is solely through tae maternal solicitude of the Church, that I they will be preserved to us in the future. II. We will not, however, in undertaking to discuss this important question, lay our selves open to the reproach we made our adversaries, only a few moments ago, that of using words which, not being sufficient ly defined, are liable to create confusion. Truth gains nothing by thiir system; and you, beloved brethren, who have often heard the vo:ce of your Pastor, know that there is nothing dearer to our heart, than the TI:ILM1I' OF TRIUTI OVER EI:t:GIR. We are going, then, from the very start, to t endeavso to explain the meaning of this word, so often ntte°ed. nid we shall not think we h1aveo wasted our inte, it in givi:) a clear dcetinition of this tern, our riee conure ,i.cotces lore lun:inous and betstr" arrange:d. t111. f It. is cvidcnr, and the leant relect:ou will r suffico to convince ,an -one of the fact, that t man was created by Gui for duocity, and t so constituncd tiat, imhout society he i could not possibly txist. The child, if 9 left entirely to itself, would perish much i quicker thain thu flower whose life is only C of a few hlIurs. Arriving at the period of d adoleacence, lacking judgment and expe- P rience, he would ofteu err to his own de. r triment, if no one were at hand to guide him, to teach him how to regulate his life properly, and to dispose him to de good to others as others do good to him. What would become of him on reaching " manhood without the tutelary cares of that society of which he forms a part 7 A cele- c brated French economiot (Frederlk has-r tiat) has collected together in a picture, as it were, the many blesesinse that man fi.s e' in society, anr.d it is a prodigy worthy of admiration. Look at the least of men, the most obecure of artizaus; ihe has always wherewithal, good or bad. to clothe himself, to cover his feet. Consider how many a persons, how manv peoples must have been employed to furnish eaca one with clothes, shoes, etc. Every ,man can daily raise a piece of Si bread to his moiunthi; look again at how l much labor, how many hands it has taken fe to accomplialsh this resulnit, from the laborer c who with didticulty plows the ground to ii plant the ceed, down to the baker who has II converted the flour into bread! Every a man has certain rights; he finds in society a lav3oes to, defend thmni, ngisatra'ea uen f.,rcu thIuta by their eittence., soali., i ti S.iialke tlh a resptected. Is i iin irantt 11ie .aids eciicol0, u., a who % rite bo ks, 'r hi! :, ,hbera that print them, and otheis that publish theim. T, satisfy his religonus tendencies, his aspirations towards Goid, lie tids seoma of his brethren a ho, forsakiug all ot.ier occu pations, devote themseltv, s to the study of sacred rciences, renouncing the world, its pleasures and their faniltus to be better able to respond to these sueperior demands. But this is enough to show you that it is indispensable for us to live in society so that our wants, which are as exacting as they are varied, may be gratified. Iv. Society, then, being composed of men essentially capable of improvement, cannot stand still, it advances and perfects itself. One age inherits the inventions, discoveries and improvements achieved by the prece ding one, and thus the sum of physical, moral and political blessings can loncrease most marvellousnely. Who would compare the miserable hats of the primitive nations, their clumsy tools, and their imperfect in struments, with what we have in our nine teenth century ? There is no comparison between the work done by oar machiues so ingeniously contrived, and that which came laboriously from the hrands of man. There is no doubt whatever, that the old, and badly laid out reads, the insecure bridges, the long and disagreeabie juur neya of olden times are far inferior to oar railroads which, In a certain way, give wings to o'r feet, and which have dinin i-tthep Uopertionbq tF e,'pnet be-es ,"t ti., proximity into which they have btoughit its inhabitants. Is not the age iu whicih we live, because of the gentlenues of public mannors, and the propirity of euatomes, far superior to the gross and bru tal manhers of the barbasanot I And are n't reiprocal relations vastly improved I Ias not the political system, in ce-rtain re spectse, improved under theo inflnence of timt, anrd experience I We no longer be hold examples of private vengeance toler ated, puniisthmeut by fire, the law of retal iatiuo, etc. Have rot petty feudal tyrants, quarrelous com ,tunities, and wandering band, of undisciplined soldiery Lntirely disappeared I It is, then. indeed, a fact that man in society goes on improving to the three-fold degree of physical well-being, moral rela tions with his fellows and in political con dition. Now the different degrees of tbo successive development to which men, united together in society, attain IS CALLED CIVILIZATION. This civilivation is nascent aid rudi mentary when t` o conditions in which man perfects himself under this three-fold point of v:ew, are slight!y developed ; it is e-eat when th:.so conditions are more full ; it ae:nld be complete ii all those condi ti.ues wers- perfectly perfurmed. V. Hiving thus given a true idea of civili r.ati,,n. so as not to be open to the charge of striking in the dark and of fighting the air, we will procCed to take up the great question which in ocr day holds the world in suspense. Is i true that civilization cannot bring forth fruit in a soeicty that liven in the Spirit of Jesus Christ, and in the midst of w' ih the Catholic Chureh speaks with the voice of a Mother and a reacher ? Will man be doomed not to mingle with the society of those who enj.)y civilization in the physical, moral and religions order, if he does not t,-hei against the Churnc, and if he rrea Pot repudiate her ?-We would have to admit thii. if we hold to ideas that prevail, clnd to ev:r,t that ale trars pi'ino bc'uore our (yt s. it3 exists in Clii stianrity and in thei CLurch, rorn t he il:cvrc.t t iis tiought neit, s't ryv to wsge a bitter iarfare again it tl:e C:rirch in the uIe of (civviZtli tio, anid that men are persna:ded iat t theuy must :enoance all ;ope of aimeli.iration, until Ihey get rid of the Cihrcrh. fiis, deafly beloved, is the question we consid, grteat a;l. all ilputzrt ant. Now, if it sr.ero reas,lverd to the detri ment ,,f ti.e Churith, there would no longe: exist any means of alrestiag the apostacy of her childien, who could not help enter taining a feeling of contempt for an insti tction that wouuld force them to remain barbarians and savages. vi. But if thbo question is a very grave one in itself, and becaause t the consequences growing out of it, it is one of those which leqitire nothing more than calm reflection and an impartial scrutiny Into facts, to beget a brilliant triumph for the Church. Acd it is precsely by the help of calm •reflcuion atit by the nriflickering light of facts that we are going to discuss it, so that N) 311iCONiSTRUCTION OF LAFOUCAGE nay load any one into error or to suspect the Church. Such a subitect cannret, however, ibecause of its great range, be con fined within the necessarily narrow limits of a Pastoral Letter. It aill he well, therefore, to divide it, and con'ent orselv, 4, on thin occasion, with dealing it. civilsz.ti, u in so far as it fu!tilie the cend-tioan by ahlich man per fe:ta hinst it ii a phi c:ral and material respect. I i-: nuot wit.:oit doe coosidera tion that we conlmuncX with this view of the siabjct; for, islbout considering that it is tIhe ifirt to dlevelap itself, and conec luelitly, tho flrst to attr:tc', attention, it is, imoreorver, thie nost importanlt, not becanee :f its intrinsic value, tnt because of the disordered tendency if our age, which is pre-eminently occupied with things that relate to temporal ideas and destinies. Tvii. Is it true, then, dearly beloved, that in the Church, and in following its teachings, oan is prevented from arriving, in regard to physical well-being, at that degree of civilization it woald be poasible for him to reach if he were free from all tramels and from all dependence on the Church 7 How easy it is for us to answer in the words of a well-known writer (Niontesquien) not sus pected of any tenderness for the Clhunrch : What an admirable thing ' The Chrisa tian religion, that appears to have no other aim than our happiness in another life, and tot secures our happiness on this earth." TiE DIGNITY OF LAtIOIt. Now, dearly beloved, men regard as a ource of prosperity the labor from which lows all ipubtlic and private wealth, all per fctions of matter aed all ingecious dis coveries. Noe, labor, whhether we take it in its humblest form, which is manual labor, or in its noblect form, which is the ttudy of nature to learn its powers and apply them to the uses of lifo, who has evlI piv, t , it grv, ter ,i. :,cI ng, rni.er r th'iit the religion of J-tus ('1. rit, which p t .ce it: f pure a,:d uLtltL:ab:e in the I Chnrch ? I. -hr has been dtspi~rd and it is [till duspised wher'ever Christianity do's not extend its hbenticent empire ,Arintotle called it iliiberal, Plat, cln lerred the same epitl. t upon it The laboring classes, that have at ways been an object of the Church's most affectionate solicitude, were not even re garded by the Greeks as worthy of the name of citizens; they were reduced almcst to the rank of slaves. The free man in fall possession of all his rights, does not labor, he is even disgusted with the fine arts; he must show himself blase in the theatres, in his correspondence and make alihke his idleness and his eloquence manifest in the assemblages he frequents. In this respect the manners of the Romans were not unlike those of the Greeks. That grave philosopher and that orator who was known as Cicero, had such a con tempt for labor that he looked upon labor ing men and handicraft men as barbarians and nobodies. Terence, who is a good I witness of the ideas that were received and that were in vogue in Rome in his day, gives us to understand that to be honosed and respected, a man had to lead an idle life, and not be obliged to work for a liv ing. Juvenal tells us what was the meet popular occupation of the Romans : "'To cringe or be iesolent with the rich so as to obtain from them food and eangul nary aisluenents." unch, dearly beloved, was the condition of thuI two most cu!tivatcd nations of trathe~isn- d- o irftst maf-tbsre--p-efls labor has never been tonored to a greater extent, and is not any more so at present. Like the old Germons dcsciibud by Tac itus, who held labor in abhorrence, so also in our day do we see the same antipatlhy perpetuating itself among the nations de. piived of the lightof the Gospel. In the Indies, a Brabm:n, that is a man belong ing to the higher classes, would coiibider himuelf tarnished if he so much as tbuched a pariah. The SAVAGFS OF NORTII AaMERII.. abstain from labor and impose it upon the women wlo are treated as ainves, and if we must mention a famous Review, (Revue des Deuc Mondes) even here among ourselves, we, who have never theless attained such high culture, labor is respected only in words, and while men bow before the rich, they do not smile upon those whose hands are hardened from contact with implements of toll (8 (To be continuod. CATHOLICS AND THiE PUBLIC SCHOOLS. St. Louis Times. The long contest growing out of the ob jections of Catholics to the public school system, and their consequent refusal to send their children to the schools-with of course the complaint against paying taxes for something they did not get the benefit of-is about to be settled, and it is hoped forever. It is stated that hereafter the children of Catholic parents will attend the public schools, and with the eousent and approval of the religious teachers of the Church. Many of those who control the parochial schools have, we are informed, determined to notify the Board that on the next school opening the children hereto fore attending the parochial schools will be sent to the public schools, the parochial houses to be closed if :not secured by the Board. This will at cnce precipitate about 15000 cbildren into thi already erowded school houst a, increasi:g the cost of teaching about :100(,000 per annum. This mu.it Lecebsarily add largely to the embar rasr.i',nt of t:e fOn inager of the public c!'oos if prmpt tin rt not tena .4. cure more oom and provido teachers for the new-comers. In th,e satle of tho case, it is not improper to sog*est that the Board sihouldl at cnue iak.e overtures for the pur chase or lreso of thlt parochial school honses. as no doubt tavori-ble terms could he rande both as ro price and time of pay ruent. The reason f-r this now "new departure" on the part of the Cutholic community origitates in a spirit of reciprocal conces sion. It is known to a large number of readers that the long continned controversy about "the Bible in the public schools" was one of the objections brought against them by Catholics, who could not subscribe to the reading of the Protetant Bible and the snbject'on of their children to the Protest ant form of worship, as was virtually done while the Bible was read and the schools opened with proeyer. Added to this, many of the school books contained matter ob noxious to the sensitive feelings of Catho lics, especially the readers, in which ex tracts from controversial Protestant works rrfl:'cttd strongly on the Catholic form of worship and exaggerated alleged perseco tios of Protestants by i.hat Church. Now all this hashas been bgated. The reading of the Bibl: and mo;ririg service-s have been disensced with, while oljectional s"º lertions h:tve been climinated licnm tio readers. Tihus, tlo cusRe of quarrel ha:v ing no longer n exi-tence, there is n,,lhuii' o pr':venrt oinmmunite of intereit and 1:ar rnihny, atleects relegating re-ligious teaching ant train:ng to the home circle, th:e Sunday School and the curch. The parish irtriat dXtigu retaining tihe service- of a inurib r i" the brother ai'd sRitors now in charg, of the parchial echou!os, to giv,: daib, inetruction in Chris tian doctrinou to children of tLheir hiocks. We are glad to hear that due notice of this movement is to be given to the School Bsaard, as the p!an first proposed of march ing all the children of the parochial schools in a body and taking possession of tlhe neighboring public school buildings early on the opening day, on the principle of "firat comne first served" would necessarily cause much confusion and bad feeling. THE CONCLA IE. The Gcrmania, the great Catholic paper of Germany, publishes the following de tails of the proceedings at the Conclave. It declares that it has received them from a friendly quarter, and that they are in all respects correct. The form in which they are published resemSles that of a proccs "erbal compiled on the spot.

CLOSE OF A (:RE.T .MISSION.V iN IN. SALE, II:ELA.\D. The Dublin correspondent of the London Register writes under date of March 7th. The Redempt-orist Fathers, who have been in Kinsale for the past month, en gaged in giving a mission to the parish ioners, brought their most aseiduous labors to a singularly successful close. The first fortnight was devoted to the women of the parish, and during the last fortnight the Mission was exclusively devoted to the men of the parish. It has produced, I am re joiced to add, the most wonderful results. During the last fortnight c:f the Mission the chapel was thronged to excess by men, ail of them most eager to approach the Sacramenti and to amend their lives. Some of these camne three or four miles, and were often in the chapcl at two o'clock in the morning, somo of them stopping all the night there, eo as to le sore of going to confession in the morning. During the past week th!r mars' branch of the Contra uuL - of tutuLt"eJJt.anýnily istatt-, i il and now recknile over S(W) menlim,erC.

On the last Slundhay morning of 1ho Mirnion a General Communion took )l)ice, and the mel, to the ;numb'.r o(f 1,500, ipproached the a;tir rails and received Hlo' Communiou. It was a magnificent bight. O)n that Sunday evening an ii iense concourse of men from the town and different parts of the locality assembled in the parish chapel to witness the closing ceremony. After the Rosary was over, Father McLonghlin delivered an eloquent discourse, impressing upon the congrega tion the necessity of shunning the occasion of sin and of persevering in the state of grace. He thanked them for their regular at tondanto at the chapel, and concluded by saying that he and his brother missionaries felt greatly delighted at the enormous good' accomplished. iHe then gave the congregation his own and the nw Popo's blensiig. After that the men, with lighted -audles, renewved their baptisnal vows. I'hs was indeed a magnificent ;,i:ct tclo to si tnePa, over :3,0(J1 men hol';ing Jighted andles in their hands.
