They werelindul- I gent to Christians, and our Saint's father, , a man of great wealth, was even the trust ed VdIser of the Caliph. John was born A. D. 690, and educated with great care by a learned Greek monk, who had been breought as a slave to Damascus, and who, when his work was done, retired to the monastery of St. Babas. On his father'adeath John sueno seeded to his offise. He had now all that the world could give him-wealth, honor, d power, learning. It was probably at this .jimoe that he wrote his three orations, of a jugular strength and beauty, in defence of a images, assailed by the Empefor Leo. iloon felt the peril of his position, divi. his vast riches amongst the poor, came down from his high place, and went alone and on foot to the Holy Places, and thence to St. Sabas. His life thereafter is a record - of humility, prayer, labor, and obedience; ; and the cell is still sabown in which he lived I and wrote. His great work On the Ortho- . da Faith is the first attempt at dogmatic t or scientific theology, and was a text-book t and model to succeeding ages. His homi- . lies show great fervor and tenderness, es Pseoally when he speaks of the Blessed Mother of God. His contemporaries named f him "Chrysorroes," the Golden Stream, and he is the last of the Greek Fatherspe fore the fatal schism. He died A. D. 780. The emperor revenged himself on St. John by accusing him to the caliph of trea son; and the enraged caliph ordered the saint's right bhand to be struck off. In the evening St. John knelt before a statue of our Lady, and prayed thus : "O stainless Mother of God, in defence of holy images I have lost my hand; help me, heal me, that I may still write of thy praises and those of thy Divine Sen." Sleep came over him, and he heard in vision our Lady sea: "Thy hanul is wl.ol"; be it as thou hast sald,as tle pen tfote who writethewiftly.' He awoke; nia m and wrs rrescred ; only a thin red line showed that it had been S -v ered. The caliph recognized his innocence, and restored him to his office. May T. ST. STANISLA8, BISHOP, MARTYR. Stanislas was born in answer to prayer when his parents were advanced in age. Out of gratitude they educated him for the Church, and from a holy priest ho became in time Bishop of Cracow. Boleslas II. 1 was then King of Poland,-a prince of good disposition, but spoilt by a long course of victory and success. After many acts of lust and cruelty he outraged the whole I kingdom by carrying off the wife of one of his nobles. Against this public scandal the chaste and gentle bishop alone raised I his voice. Having commended the matter to God, he went down to the palace and openly rebuked the king for his crime I against God and his subjects, and threat ened to excommunicate him if he persisted in his sin. Boleslas in revenge made a false charge against the bishop, but on its being miraculously refuted he made a show for a while of a better life. Soon, however, he relapsed into the most scandalous ex ceases, and the bishop, finding all remon strance useless, pronounced the sentence of excommunication. In defiance of the I censure, on May 8, 1079, the king went down to a chapel where the bishop himself was saying Mass, and sent in three compa nies of soldiers to despatch him at the altar. Each in turn came out saying they bad been scared by a light from heaven. SThen the king rushed in and slew the Saint at the altar with his own hand. - To slander the Saint's character, Boleslas suborned the nephews of one Paul, lately dead, to swear that their uncle had never been paid for land bought by the bishop for the Church. The Saint stood fearlessly before the king's tribunal, though all his witnesses forsook him, and guaran teed to bring the dead man to witness for him within three days. On the third day, after many prayers and tears, be raised Paul to life, and led him in his grave clothes before the king. Boleslas was only hardened by the miracle; but Stanislas' voice never faltered in its warnings till his courage won for him his palm. May a. ST. BERNARD, FRIAR, PREACHER This holy priest held in the thirteenth century the office of sacristan in the Do minican house at Santarem in Portugal, and bhad under his charge two boys, sons of poor parents, who daily served the Masses of the fathers and received in re turn from them such learning as they could afford, by which they so profited that they held it their greatest privilege to assist at the altar, and stand in the immediate pres ence of the Lamb of God. It was their custom when Mass was over to take their morning meal in a chapel near the church, in which was an image of the Infant Jesus, to whom they would offer a portion of their food; and the Holy Child would come and eat with them, teaching them the while the hidden things of Divine Love. Which when Bernard beard, he bade them pray to Jesus thus : "Thou comest, O Lord, day by day, to us; grant that we too, and our Father Bernard, may sit as guests at Thy table." Tbhen Jesus granted their prayer, promising that they should keep the festi val of Bis Ascension with Him. The day came, asd tie boyJ as usuoal served Ber nard's MIss. When it was ended the three Sknelt for a moment before the altar; and as they knelt a seeep came over them and they passed from the house of God on earth to His house in heaven. The monks buried Bernard and the two servers in one and the same grave; but so sweet was the perfume that came from their bodies that it rose through the earth, proclaiming the holiness of these servants of God. Such rewards are only for Saints; but all who assist worthily at the sacred mysteries obtain in this life purity of soul, hidden intercourse with God, and in the next a speedy entrance into the joys of the blest. May 9. ST. GREGORY NAZIANZEN. Gregory was born of saintly parents, and was the chosen friend of St. Basil. They studied together at Athens, turned at the same time from the fairest worldly prospects, and for some years lived together in seclusion, self discipline, and toil. Greg ory was raised, almost by force, to the priesthood; and was in time made Bishop of Nssiansum by St. Basil, who bad become s auseiibl uy Can a Vwu. Wu-e no was W fifty years old he was chosen for his rare ( gifts and his conciliatory disposition, to be d Patriarch of Constantinople, then distract. e ed and laid waste by Arian and other her- P stics. In that city he labored with won- I derfol success. St. Jerome boasts that he h had there sat at his feet, and calls him his a master and his catechist in Holy Scripture A But his lowliness, his austerities, the insig- J nificanee of his person, and, above all, his C very success, drew down on aim the hatred d of the enemies of the Faith. He was per- e secuted by the magistrates, stoned by the rabble, and thwarted and deserted even by J his brother- bishops. During the second I General Council he resigned his see, hoping E thus to restore peace to the tormented city, I and retired to his native town where he t died A. D. 390. He was a graceful poet, a E preacher at once eloquent and solid, and as G a champion of the Faith so well equipped, b so strenuous, and so exact, that be is call- a ed St. Gregory the Theologian. b The Arians were so irritated at the decay a of their heresy that they pursued the Saint a with outrage, calumny and violence, and t at length resolved to take away his life. t For this purpose they chose a resolute t young man, who readily undertook the a sacrilegious commission. But God did r not allow him to carry it out. He was touched with remorse, and cast himself at 5 the Saint's feet, avowing his sinful intent. St. Gregory at or ce forgave him, treated him with all kindness, and received him I amongst his friends, to the wonder and edi fication of the whole city, and to the con fusion of the heretics, whose crime- had served only as a foil to the virtue of the Saint. May 10. ST. ANTONINUS, BISHOP. Antoninus, or little Antony, as he was called from his small stature, was born at Florence in 1389. After a childhood of singular holiness, he begged to be admit ted into the Dominican house at Fiesole; t bat the Superior, to test his sincerity and perseverence, told him he must first learn by heart the book of the Decretals, con taining several hundred pages. This ap parently impossible task was accomplished witt.in twelve months; and Antoninus re ceived the coveted habit in his sixteenth year. While still very young he filled 1 several important posts of his Order, and was consulted on questions of difficulty by f the most learned men of his day; being known for his wonderful prudence as "the Counsellor." He wrote several works on theology and history, and sat as Papal Theologian at the Council of Florence. In 1446 he was compelled to accept the arch bishopric of that city; and in this dignity earned for himself the title of "the Father of the Poor," for all he had was at their disposal. His household consisted of only six persons; his palace contained no plate or costly furniture, and was often nearly destitute of the necessaries of life. His one mule was frequently sold for the relief of the poor, when it would be bought back for him by some wealthy citizen. He died embracing the crucifix, May 2nd, 1459, often repeating the words, "To serve God is to reign." St. Antoninus never refused an alms I which was asked in the name of Ged. When he had no money he gave his clothes, shoes, or furniture. One day, being sent by the Florentines to the Pope, as he ap proached Rome a beggar came up to him almost naked, and asked him for an alms for Christ's sake. Outdoing St. Martin, Antoninn gave him his whole cloak. When he entered the city another was given him; by whom he knew not. May ii. ST. FRANCIS JEROME. Francis Jerome was born in 1642 of re spectable and pious parents in the king dom of Naples, of the capital of which kingdom he afterwards became the apostle. His childhood and youth were remarkable for innocence and virtues which presaged his future sanctity. At the age of twelve years be was admitted into a community of missioners, and employed by them in catechising. After having made his theo logical studies in Naples and been ordained priest, his whole life was so completely moulded in conformity with the evangeli cal counsels that he went by the name of "the holy priest." At the age of twenty eight he entered the Society of Jesus, and after a most fervent novitiate became a professed father and a pattern of religious observance. From a desire of martyrdom, he offered himself for the missions ib Japan, but God had destined him for apostolic labor in his native country. He was ap pointed Prefect of the Missions in Naples, where his zeal for God's glory and the souls of men made him a model for mis sioners. Weak in body, the labors and sufferings he underwent in evangelizing the prisoners, soldiers, galley-slaves, and abandoned women in Naples, and in every description of missionary work, can only be attributed to a supernatural strength. God repeatedly confirmed the preaching of His servant by astounding miracles. He died in the professed houso of the So ciety in Naples in bis seventy-fourth year. While St. Francis was preaching to aban doned women in the streets of Naples, one of their number insulted him from her window and ridiculed his discourse. The Saint warned her that within eight days God would punish her, and on the eighth Sday he invited his audience, who had as sembled at the same place, to visit the woman that had interrupted him. She was found by them lying dead npon the floor of her room. "Catharine," said the Saint, addressing the dead body, "for the greater glory of God and the edifcation of those standing by, answer me, Where are you 7" The departed soul returned for an instant, and gave an answer distinctly heard by all present-"In bell for eternity." May I. ST. CYRIL OF JERUSALEM. We know nothing of Cyril's life until he ;was ordained priest by St. Maximus, who I gave him the important charge of instruct log and preparing the candidates for bap a tism. This charge he held for several a yeare, and we still have one series of his instructions, given in the year 347 or 348. They are of singular interest as being the earliest record of the systematic teaching of the Church on the Creed and Sacraments, , and as having been given in the Church . built by Constantine on Mount Calvary. t They are solid, simple, profound; sato y rated with Holy Scripture; exact, preeiee, r and terse; and, as a witness and exposition - of the Catholic Faith, invaluable. On the e death of St. Maximus be was chosen p Bishop of Jerusalem. At the beginning of his episcopate a cross was seen in the air, seauiu u areau sauuiu. n easry so sauuu. .j Olivet, and so bright that it shone at noon day. St. Cyril gave an account of it to the emperor; and the faithful regarded it as a presage of victory over the Arian heretics. Like the other great bishops of his time he was persecuted, and driven once and again from his see ; but on the death of the Arian Emperor Valens he returned to Jerusalem. He was present at the second General Council at Constantinople, and died in peace A. D 386, after a troubled 1 episcopate of thirty five years. While Cyril was bishop, the apostate Julian resolved to falsify the words of our Lord by rebuilding the temple at Jerusalem. He employed the power and resources of a Roman emperor; the Jews thronged en thusiastically to him and gave munificently. 1 But Cyril was unmoved. The word of God abides, he said : one stone shall not be laid on another. When the attempt was made, a heathen writer tells us that horrible flames came forth from the earth, rendering the place inaccessible to the scorched and scared workmen. The at tempt was made again and again, and then abandoned in despair. Soon after, the emperor perished miserably in a war against the Persians and the Church had rest. SECRET NEGOTIATIONS PRECEDING THE FRANCO-PRUSSIAN WAR. PRUSSIA'S NARROW ESCAPE FROM" THE DAN GER OF A TRIPLE ALLIANCE. Prince Napoleon has written a book in which he gives what be says is the true history of the secret negotiations that im mediately preceded the Franco Prussian war. He says that as early as the summer of 1869 intrigues were on foot at Paris for the conclusion of an offensive and defensive alliance between the Emperors of France and Austria and the King of Italy. Its object was to check the growing power of Prussia and the North German Confedera tion. Italy was willing to enter the com pact, provided Rome was given up to her, and Austria, strange to say, eagerly sec onded her proposal. Napoleon, however, feared the effect of such a surrender upon his Ultramontane supporters, and refused to withdraw the French troops. When the nomination of Prince Charles of Hobhenzol lern precipitated a crisis, the French saw at once the necessity of coming to an un derstanding with their halting friends, and a treaty in three articles stipulating the armed action of the three powers was sent to Florence and Vienna. The government of Victor Emmanuel professed their readi ness to sign, provided a fourth proviso were added granting their demands re specting Rome. To this Napoleon puffed up by the worthless assurances of Letcuf and his carpet warriors, interposed his veto. As late as the 20th of July, five days after the declaration of war, the Austrian Ambassador at Paris urged the same course upon the Emperor, adding "that they could never have Italy heartily with them until they extracted the Roman thorn." Although a Catholic power, Austria, it seems, was willing to sacrifice the Pope to berevenged on her recent conqueror. Na poleon remained undecided. His old pro crastination which threatened his success during the coup d'etat, had got the better of him, and he could not make up his mind to the alternative of alienating the Ultra montanes. Prince Napoleon pointed out that in any event the treaty would be favorable to France, and urged him to sign before the fortunes of war declared either for or against them. Still the Em peror refused. It was only after the craush ing defeat of Hagenau and Woerth that his eyes were opened and be was brought to signify his assent. Then, of course, it was too late. Italy had no need to pur chase what she could have for nothing, and the French alliance was discarded as use less. One of the most singular revelations connected with the history of those tron blous times is the fact that the Pope's appeal to King William was at one period thought to have been successful. Prince Napoleon says that when the Italians occu pied the city, the King and his advisers were decidedly uneasy as to the attitude of Prussia, who, it was thought, might not wish to offend her South German and Catholic allies by consenting to the seizure. A COURAGEOUS ENGINEER. SAVING THE LIFE OF A LITTLE GIRL WHILE GOING FORTY MILES AN HOUR. While the Erie lightning express train was sweeping down the valley of the Del aware a mile below Cochecton on Wednes day afternoon the engineer saw a little girl walking the track. He was just rounding a curve. The locomotive shrieked, but within two seconds the child was overtaken and the train passed the spot where she had stood. The engineerlooked behind the rear car, expecting tosee her mangled body. But the track was clear. He stepped upon the guards of the locomotive, and saw the child plastered against the cowcatcher. She was senseless. He approached her with great care, and succeeded in rescuing her as she was about to roll to the ground. The train was stopped and backed up to I the residence of the girl's parents. They were poor people living in a shanty on the liloe of the road. The girl was about Seleven years old. She was slightly cut I about the face, buteecaped without further - injury. The passengers were delayed ten minutes. When they left the child was Ssmiling in the lap of her mother.
