In 1408, St. Vincent Ferrer once suddenly terrapted his sermon to declare that aere was among his hearers a young raaelsean who would be one day a greater =ebher than himself, and would be set o-re him in honor by the Church. This un sown friar was Bernardine. Of noble birth, alid spent his youth in works.of mercy, ad had then entered religion. Owing to defective utterance, his success as a iareher at first seemed doubtful, but by Sprayers of oour Lady this obstacle was ulously removed, and Bernardine -an apostolate which lasted thirty aerse. He raised his voice in turn the civil strife, licentionusness, and tions of his time, and by his burn g words and by the power of the Holy sae of Jesus, which he displayed on a blat at the end of his sermons, obtained iraealous conversions, and reformed the water part of Italy. But this success had be exalted by the Croes. The Saint was nuounced as a heretic and his devotion as lolatrous. After many trials he lived to ae his innocence proved, and a lasting emorial of his work established in the bareh. The Feast of the Holy Name immemorates at once his sufferings and is triumph. He died on Ascension eve 144, while his brethren were chanting the tphon "Father, I have manifested Thy smeio men."2_ St. Bernardine, when a youth, undertook charge of a holy old woman, a relation his, who had been left destitute. She a blind and bed-ridden, and during her g illlness could only utter the Holy Name. be Saint watched over her till she died, id thus learned the devotion of his life. o understand tie mysteries of Jesus, we o must become familiar with His friends .the poor, the senffring, and the sick. May 21. ST. FELIX OF CANTALICE. St. Felix was born in 1513. His boyhood nd youth were spent in keepitng cattle id in the labors of the fields. In these icupatione he was able to :cad a nearly iitary life, and by continual prayer and uonh penance reached a high degree of intemplation. His greats at jy was to [ait the Blessed Sucranment; and often hen be left his flocks to g- to Maps, angels atohed them till Is returr. At the act rthirty years, heating of the hives of the esert Fathers, he longed to imitate them, id asked admit'ar.cc as a lay brother into ie Capuchin Order. lie redoubled his rayers and thanksgivings, and added any austerities beyond the rule, walking trefoot and wearing a shirt of iron links added with spikes. He spent most of the Ight in prayer, but took a little rest while ae fathers recited Matins, saying Jeasus as not then alone. For forty years he lily collected alms in Rome, but his collection was so unbroken that he often ew.not who had been his companion on rounds. St. Philip greatly loved Felix, when the two Saints met they would each other great sufferings for God. remain speechless with interior joy, and again without a word. It was by the ice of St. Philip that St. Charles Bor eo induced Felix to revise the rules he drawn up for his Oblate Fathers. Fe expired, full of joy, in 1587. Felix always greeted others with the ,"Deo gratias ;" he taught the chil he met to repeat them, and when they him they would joyously cry "Deo ias." He was more generally known rother Deo Gratias than by his own e. He once perceived two gentlemen aing a duel; he called to them from "Deo gratias, my brotlers; say, both you, Deo gratias !" In the heat of their el they stopped short, and, making holy brother arbitrate between them, thed their Swords and became excel tfriends. His last wish on his deathbed that others should say "Deo gratias" him when he could no longer speak. May 22. VEN. JOHN BAPTIST DE LA SALLE. rem his earliest childhood John Baptist ed to be a priest, but the loss of his nts and family cares interrupted his se at St. Sulpice, and he was twenty a years of age before his ordination place. He was appointed to a canonry elms, his native town, and there God Ired a pious layman to seek his aid in ding a free school for boys. The Saint ted himself eagerly to the work, and the teachers under his own charge. ools multiplied and demanded a constant ply of teachers, whom John Baptist had an; and for them he drew up a rule life. Thus commenced the institute of iMan Brothers for teaching the Faith the ignorant. The schools multiplied idly, and teacher and scholars led holy Among the latter were young hard criminals whom no earthly punish ts nor fear of hell could move, but who softened and won by the patience sweetness of John Baptist. Yet the t had powerful enemies. The Jansen hated him for his devotion to the Holy uad msed all means to ruin "the Roman t." Through their influence he was osed from his superiorship, deprived of revenues, and a rebellion stirred up ng his subjects. He left his cause in andm of God, and after ten years' t waiting found himself unanimously general, and his institute firmly lished. He died A. D. 1719. -the beginning of the Brotherhood of the pupil teachers were much dis d by the uncertainty of their future, g to the absence of endowments. John tist exhorted them most eloquently to t in God. But his words produced * effect, for he still had his canonry patrimony, and his pupils told him at that when he was as poor as themselves y would be more easily pernsuaded. The ut, seeing that his preaching was indeed ess without example, resigned his ben gave his patrimony to the poor, and _ to his last hour in absolute poverty h his brethren. - May S3. B. CRISPItN OF VITERBIO. Born in 1668 of humble but pious parents rispin was nurtured in sentiments of ten r devotion to the Mother of God, who ve him many visible proofs of her pro tion. during his childhood. Although e bad reeived a liberal edueatlon, his li mde m eart to beo a admission as a lay brother amongst the CapuchinP. He was at first repulsed on account of his weak and sickly appearance; but once received, he soon proved that a hearty good will can more than compensate for want of bodily strength. Frequently employed to gather alms for his convent, he would teach the Christian doctrine to children in the streets, together with little canticles he himself composed in Mary's honor. For this reason he was commonly called the "Apostle of Mary." Oil from the lamp which he kept burning before his simple image of Mary, or flowers from her altar were so efficacious in sicknesses that it was commonly said, "the oil and flowers of Brother Crispin do more good than all doctors' stuff" Consumed at length by labors and suffering, he died in Rome at the age of eighty-two. He rejected all marks of respect on his death bed, but repeated constantly, "In a few days my lady mother will make me rich, and how truly rich I" Our Saint made in the convent garden a little shrine of boughs in which he placed his image of Mary. Some of the religious said that the first rain or wind would destroy it, but he replied, "What rain what wind I The very mountains will be thrown down rather than this little cover ing of my Madonna, who commands the winds and the storms and the whole heav en." And so it was, for the storms came and the trees of the forest were blown down, but his little chapel stood as firm as a rock in the midst of a raging se;t. Before this shrine Criepin would say his prayers, and round about it he strewed grainl to en tice the birds to come and sing with him in honor, as he said, of his beloved- Qeen. - May C4. ST. MARY OF EGYPT. At the tender age of twelve Mary left her father's house that she might sin with out restraint, and for seventeen years she lived in shame at Alexandria. Then she accompanied a pilgrirusge to Jerusa:em, and entangled mnnay in grievous sin. She was in that city on the Feast of the Exalta tion of the Holy Cross, and went with the crowd to the church that contained the precious wood. The res: enttred and adored ; but Mary was invisibly he!d back. In that ins'ant her misery and pollution burst upon her. Turning to the Immacu late Mother, whose picture faced her in the porch, she vowed thenceforth to do pen ance if she might enter and stand like Magdnalen beside the Cross. Then site entre( d in. As she brelt before our Lady tn leaving the church a voice came to her which si.id, "Pass over Jordon and thou sizaltilud ieC." Sihe went into the wilder ness, and te2tre, in 420, forty-seven years alter, the Abbot Zsimus met her. She told hien that for seventeen years the old songs and scenes haunted her; ever since, she had had perfect peace. At her request he brought her on Holy Thursday the sacred Body of Christ. Slhe bade him return agais sfier a year, and this time he found her corpse upon the sand with an inscription saying. "Bury here the body of Mary the sinner." Sie had passed over the Jordon of death into the rest which is promised alike to the penitent and the pure of the people of God. He that loves danger, says the Holy Spirit, shall perish in it. Oar Saint, after her generous surrender of herself to God, after forty-seven years' fasting and silence in the wilderness, fled at the sight of Zosiunes, though she knew he was a priest. He could scarcely come to speak with her. After he had heard her story, she only spoke with him once again when he gave her the last Communion. And we, who like her have left our Father's house, with our half-conversion and scanty penance, go on risking that Father's favor because we will not avoid some plain occasion of sin. May 25. sr. GREGOtRY VII. Gregory VII, by name Hildebrand, was born in Tuscany about the year 1013. He was educated in Rome. From thence he went to France ani became a monk at Clany. Afterwards he returned to Rome, and for many years filled high trusts of the Holy See. Three great evils then afflicted the Church; simony, concubinage, and the custom of receiving investiture from lay hands. Against these three corruptions Gregory never ceased to contend. As Legate of Victor II he held a council at Lyons, where simony was condemned. He was elected Pope in 107:3, and at once call ed upon the pastors of the Catholic world to lay down their lives rather than betray thie laws of God to the will of princes Rome was in rebellion through the ambi tion of the Cecci. Gregory excommunicated them. They laid hands on him at Christ mas during the midnight Mass, wounded him, and cast him into prison. The fol lowing day he was rescued by the people. Next arose his conflict with Henry IV, Emperor of Germany. This monarch, after openly relapsing into simony, pretended to depose the Pope. Gregory excommunicated the emperor. His subjects turned against him, and at last he sought absolution of Gregory at Canossa. But he did not per severe. HQ set up an antipope, and be seiged Gregory in the Castle of St. Angelo. The aged Pontiff was obliged to flee, and died in exile A. D. 11185. On May 25th 1(!85, about the seventy second year of his life and the twe.th year of his pontificate, Gregory eltered into his reet. His last words were full of a divine wisdon andl patience. As hlie was dying he said, "I have loved justice and hated iniquity, therefore I die in exile." IIis faithful attendant answered, "Vicar of Christ, an exile thou canet never be, for to thee God has given the Gentiles for an inheritance and the uttermost ends of the earth for thy possession." May 256. ST. PIIILIP NERI. Philip was one of the nobleline of Saints raised up by God in the sixteenth century to console and bless His Church. After a childhood of angelic beauty, the Holy Spirit drew him away from Florence, the place of his birth, showed him the world that he might freely renounce it, led him to Rome, modelled him in mind and heart aad will, and then, as by a second Pente cost, came down in visible form and filled his soul with light and peace and joy. He would have gone to India, but God reserv ed him for Rome. There he went on sim ply from day to day, drawing souls to Je seeus, exercising them in mortification and charity, and binding them together by cheerful devotions; thus, unconsciously to himself, under the hands of Mary as be said, the Oratory grew up, and all Rome was pervaded and transformed by its spirit. J-is £ was e atl nsn mlracle, Ms habitual state an esetacy. He read toe hearts if men, foretold their future, knew their eternal destiny. His touch gave health of body; his very look calmed souls in trouble and drove away temptations. He was gay, genial, and irresistably win ning; neither insult nor wrong could dim the brightness of his joy. A gentle jest would convey his rebukes and veil his miracles. The highest honors sought him out, but he put them from him. He died in his eightieth year, A D. 1595, and bears the grand title of Apostle of Rome. Philip lived in an atmosphere of sun shine and gladness which brightened all who came near him. "When 1 met him in the street," says one, "he would pat my cheek and say, 'Well, how is Dan Pole grinol' and leave me so full of joy that I could not tell which way I was going." Others said that when he playfully pulled their hair or their ears, their hearts would bound with joy. Marsio Altieri f, It such overflowing gladness in his presence that he said Philip's room was a paradise on earth. Fabrizio de Massimmi would go in sadness or perplexity and stand at Plh;lip's door; he said it was enough to see him, to be near him. And lonig after his de-t'i it was enough for many, when troubled, to go into his room, to find their he-arts ishtened and gladdened. He inspired a boundless confidence aid love, and was rie common refuge aid consoler of all. WIFHAT SHALL 71rE DO if WIT1 TILE OFS ? -THEIRi PELSELA AA D LCUL URE In most households tt'e boys form, proba bly, one of the most discordant elements. It is not given to every one, women especi ally, to know how to ulmal:goe them just so that they shall be happy themselves and dislagre-:ihro to no one eia. A healthy, active boy has an a: tonishing faculty for minchie;'; is noisy end obstreperous, with a talb-t for kicking out shoes and wearing out the kt:ees of his trousers which is sim ply appatling to a mother, especially if she is by ino meaus sure where the money for the next supply is to come from. Yet these boye are the men of the future, and on their training depends the v eal or woe of the nation. The coinug vter and law maker is in the nuresry and school room of to-day, and tl.e kssoni taught him there will butely bear their firuit in years to come. When the boys rush in like a whirlwind, bringing in mud and noise, clamoring for dinner and dashing down hats and books anywhere, tired and head achy mothers are too apt to hurry the meal that the youngsterse maiy be off again to play. In the country and in good weather this niay be well eniough, though it does not add much polsh to the manners of the boys ; but in the city a boy on the pave ment is not always sure to be in good conm pany, and somebody ought at least to keep a look out of the window for him. But in too many homes the boys are regarded as necessary nuisances, whom every one is glad to have out of the house and so out of the way. "Boys always have dirty fingers ;" so sisters are in terror if the email brother's hands come near her work or books; mother is too busey patching knee less trousers to have time to talk to him ; beside 1.e is sure to wake the baby. Cook will none of them in the kitchen, and boe tween him and the nursery-maid there is a deadly feud-she considering Master Tom as her greatest trial and he insisting that she pulls his hair and rubs his rose the wrong way when his toilet is made. His father, probably, sees very little of him if he is a city boy, and if of the country very likely he has his hands too full to give much time to Tom. Perhaps he hlias a propensity for asking questions (most bright boys have), and his ceaseless "Why 7" is a torment to his elders, who snub him perpetually with, "Do stop ask ing questions !" It may be that the boy is fond of books, and will sit reading all day long to the delight of his parents and the quiet of the household. In that case who directs his reading ? Do his father and mother choose his books and talk with him about what he reads I or do they take it for granted that the merir act of reading anything is imeritririous I We have already pointed out the dangers of the dime novel and other weekly story papers, and every day souni journal hlfes up its voice against them. Tom had better never known his letters than use the knowledge to read such stuff STUDY TIIEIR CHARACTERS. All this time the boy is growing nearer manhood-nearer the time when he must be the joy and stay of those belonging to him or their grief and curse There can be no middle coarse; if the twig is not pa tiently and prayerfully kept straight Satan will bend it to his own will, and the gnarled and crooked tree will bring forth bitter fruit. '-Even a child is known by his do logs," and the reason why so many parents are disappointed in their children is that they take so little pains to discover their natural bent, to become acquainted with them, so to speak. Nature never repeats itself. No two leaves are exactly alike, and no two children are ever cast in the same mould. Every mother knows that her children are unlike; that different motives prompt them; that punishment atffects them differently. It is a common esying tlht all children love play, but what pla.s a Watch your own little ones with their toys. One is haplpy with a box of blocks, from wh:ichi he evolves castles and bridges, tunnels arid towers, while another with the same materil never gets beyond a tall tower or a train of care. Another takes a picture, and, sitting down, weaves a wooderful romance about it, while his brothers and sisters, very likely, cast the same picture aside after a bhasty glance. A wise mother will keep all these things in her heart, and in the training of the child the parents will have an eye to his partic ular talents. Still it must be remembered that few, very few, people are posseeed of genius, and it is scarcely worth while to spoil a good mechanic to make a poor preacher or still poorer artist. Because Captain Cook, when apprenticed to a dry giida merchant, ran away to sea and be came famous, is no reason that every dis satisfied salesman should do the same and meet with like good fortune. If Andre= Johnson rose from a tailor's bench to be President he studled hard for an education first, and did not quit his goose until he knew himself qualified for better things as well as desirousne thereof. Turner, the great painter, was meant for a barber, and tier schel was educated as a musician. Sir Joshua Reynolds used to declars that pa tience and perseverance would make any one a painter, and Butffon declared genius to be patience intensi8fied. Others differ with them and know that for as much a tIrainlfg contls, It Is not all. No smoua of labor wi.l ever taihion a Sevres vase from common clay. But even common clay Is susceptible of much diversity in hantdling, aid crocks and jars are not ou frequently spoiled in the making. DON T NEOLKCT TlHE BOTS When a child is burn that child is given into the hands of the parents to be trained for life and eternity. It can not be made over and the material altered-the thing is to do the best with that which is already there. Many boys are eroiled by over strictness--a bent bow relaxes readily; but many more are ruined by too little care. The father is striving to lay up riches for his children ; the mother is a Martha cum beretd with many household cares- "Fo many little children maill. To leera them all, to colthe them all " To keep hands and faces clean and but tons upon shoes, strains her energies to the utmost. She does not often get time to talk with them, and to play yith them-that were an anomaly in the hounehlold. So the children grow up on the outside of their parents' lives, never dreaming of the father love under tile stern exterior, or hew mother lives for and in them. Looking at them all at oi.ce and c..lnltilng them up, the duties of a faithflul hItie mother seen too mucb forany one woman to bear, and only by takin~g them up otli; at i time can they be accomupliehd.
