EINIATURE LIVES OF THE SAINTS.
July 22.
ST. MARY MAGDALEN.
Of the earlier life of Mary Magdalen we
know only that she was 'a woman that was
a sinner.' From the depth of her degrada
tion she raised her eyes to Jesus with sor
row, hope, and love. All covered with
shame she came in where Jesus was at
meat, and kneltbehind Him. She said not
a word, but bathed His feet with her teats,
wiped them with the hair of her head,
kissed them in humility, and at their touch
her sins and her stain were gone. Then
hbe poured on them the costly unguent
mp-red foforfor other use ; and His own
divine lips rolled away her reproach, spoke
berabsolation, and bade her go in peace.
Theacelbrward she ministered to Jesus,
sat at His feet, and beard His words. She
was one of the family 'whom Jesus so
loved,' that He raised her brother Lazarus
from the dead. Once again, on the eve of
HisPassion; she brought the precious oint
ment, and, now purified and beloved,
poured it on His head, and the whole house
of God is still filled with the fragrance of
her anointing. She stood with our Lady
and St. John at the foot of the Cross, the
representative of the many who have had
moeh forgiven. To her first, after His
Blessed Mother, and through her to His
Apostles, our Lord gave the certainty of
Himself known, calling her by her name
beeause she was His.
When the faithful were scattered by per
seeotion, the family of Bethany found
refuge in Provence. The cave in which St.
Mary lived for thirty years is still seen;
and the chapel on the mountain-top, in
which she was caught up daily, like St.
Paul, 'to visions and revelations of the
Lord.' When her end drew near she was
borne to a spot still marked by a 'sacred
pillar,' where the holy Bishop Maximin I
awaited her; and when she had received I
her Lord, she peacefully fell asleep in
death. After the holy Sepulchre and the
Confession of St. Peter her tomb became
the pilgrimage of predilection. Bsfore the
relics of the holy penitent, kings, going to
the crusades, appointed to meet, and eight
Popes in one century knelt in veneration.
No woman, after our Blessed Lady, has
been so glorified and blessed through all
generations as 'the woman who had been a
inner.'

ST. AUSENIUS, IIERMIT.
Arsenius. as tutor to the sons of the
smperor Theodosius, filled the first place
-t the court of Constantinople, and lived I
n luxury, surrounded by one thousand
omestics richly clad. Possessed of all
he world esteems, he felt the vanity of
arthly goods, and feared to lose his soul.
king with prayers and tears to know
od's will, he heard a voice say, "Arseni- i
, fly the company of man, and thou t
nalt be saved." At once he abandoned h
I, and secretly taking ship for Alexan
nar, he entered the desert and became a
litary. He soon surpassed the most fer
eant hermits in penance, patience and ii
urage. Again he heard the mysterious '
nice say to him: "Arsenius, fly, be silent, o
e still; these are the beginnings of salva- i'
ion." Once more obeying, he made him- h
elf a cell thirteen leagues distant from 5
ny other, where he led a life of angelic h,
ontemplation. He hardly either ate or t!
lept, and his tears flowed incessantly. C
ever would he see any one nor speak

When the holy Abbot Ammon visited m

ST. FRANCIS SOLANO.
Francis was born at Mansilia in Spain, di
D. 1549. As a boy be hated quarrels, is
d was always putting an end to disputes. hi
once threw himself between two fight- ti
g plafellows, and bore their blows till th
forced them to desist. Oa another at
-aion his earnest entreaties sheathed n.
e swords of older combattants. At the pc
- of twenty he entered the Ftanciscan th
rder in his native city. When the plague tic
oke out his devotion to the sufferers to
arly cost him his life: on recovering he as
caped the gratitude of the people by wi
iting for the American mission. His ship pi
wrecked at sea. During the disaster wi
nciets found time to instruct and baptise to
ny of the negroes on board. Some fi
ments after, their half of the ship sank ah
the waves, the rest were saved. in of
ru he was again an apostle of charity be
d peace; he stopped the duels and heal- TI
the feuds of the Spanish settlers, and Cr
ught them forbearance to the conquered he
re. With the gift of tongues he was in
derstood at once by different Indian of
bes, of whom thousands were baptized. lo
sermon of his so stirred the hearte of de
Sdlssolute inhabitants of Lima, that dii
y clad themselves in mourning and did pa
blie penance. His zeal renewed the face
the land, and warmed it with the charity th
Christ. But his own strength was worn i
-t. With his favorite ejaculation, "Blessed fl
God " he expired on the feast of his an
tron, St. Bonaventure, 1810. st
Some Indian tribes, yet unconverted, cr
aned a massacre of the Christians of ax
±oton while engaged in the ceremonies si
Holy Week. Hearing of their coming, he
raneia went forth filled with the Holy mt
host, and falling in with them preached
them with such moving words of
rist's Passion, and exhorted them so
-eatly to embrace His holy faith, that
that very day more than nine thousand
are baptized, and many the same night

I from his father's ship, and when engaged
in mending his netes that he and his
younger brother St. John were called to
be fisers of men. Among the twelve
three were again chosen as the familiar com
panions of our Blessed Lord, and of these
James was one. He alone with Peter and
John was admitted to the house of Jairus
when the dead maiden was raised to life.
They alone were taken up to the high
monntain apart, and saw the face of Jesus
shining as the sun, and His garments
white as snow ; and these three alone wit
nessed the fearful agony in Gethsemane,
when his face was bowed down to earth
and His garments were dyed with blood.
What was it that won James a place among
the favorite three Faith, burning, im
petuous and outspoken, but which needed
purifying before the "Son of Thunder"
could proclaim the Gospel of peace. It was
James who demanded fire from Heaven to
consume the inhospitable Samaritans, and
who sought the place of honor by Christ
in His kingdom. Yet our Lord, in rebuk -
ing his presumption, prophesied his faith
fnlness to death. "My chalice," he said,
"indeed you shall drink, but to sit on My
right hand is not Mine but My Father's
to give." Both the one and the other were
his. First among the Apostles he drank
the chalice of his passion, and first again
entered into the kingdom, and took his
place on the Apostles' throne.
When 8t. James was brought before
King Herod Agrippa, his fearless confes
sion of Jesuans crucified so moved the public
rosecutor, that he declared himself a
Sm- spot . Aucued anuacnu
ser were hurried off together to execution,
and on the road the latter begged pardon
of the Saint. The Apoetle had long since
forgiven him, but hesitated for a moment
whether publicly to accept as a brother
one still unbaptized. God quickly re
called to him the Church's faith, that the
blood of martyrdom supplies for every
sacrament; and falling on his companion's
neck he embraced him, with the words,
"Peace be with thee." Together then they
knelt for the sword, and together received I
the crown.
July 26.
ST. ANNE.
St. Anne was the spouse of St. Joachim,
and was chosen by God to be the mother
of Mary, his own Ble'sed Mother on earth.
They were both of the royal house of
David, and their lives were wholly occu
pied in prayer and good works. One thing
only was wanting to their union-they
were childless, and this was held as a bitter
misfortune among the Jews. For long
years Anne ceased not imploring the Di
vine mercy to grant her the joys of mater
nity : and at length when she was an aged
woman Mary was born, the fruit rather of
grace than of nature, and the child more of
God than of man. With the birth of Mary
the aged Anne began a new life; she
watched her every movement with rever
ent tenderness, and felt herself hourly
sanctified by the presence of her immacu
late child. But she had vowed her daugh
ter to God, to God Mary had consecrated
herself again, and to Him Anne gave her
back. Mary was but three years old when
Anne and Joachim led her up the Temple
steps, saw her pass by herself into the
inner sanctuary and then saw her no more.
Thus was Anne left childless in her lone
old age, and deprived of her purest earthly
joy just when she needed it most. She
humbly adored the Divine Will, and began
again to watch and pray, till God called
her to unending rest with the Father and
the Spouse of Mary in the home of Mary's
Child.
In the ages of faith the devotion to St.
Anne was nowhere greater than in England.
ness was crossing from France to England,
"he invoked," says his tiographer, "the
mother of the great Mother of God, St,
Anne, and the breeze which had died away
suddenly filled the sails. For all who cross
the sea look to Mary as the Star of the Sea,
to direct their course, and pray to Mary's
mother to obtain a favorable breeze. To
St. Anne next after her daughter, St. Hugh
was most devout, and she in turn repaid
him by speedy help." So does she still
assist her faithful clients to follow the calls
of God.
July 27.
ST. VERONICA GIULIANI.
From her birth in 1660, Veronica was
wonderfully devout to the Passion of our
Lord. In the cradle she refused food thrice
a week, on Wednesday, Friday and Satur
day; and when only three years old, in
imitation of the martyrs, she thrust her
hands into the fire, and kept them there
till the smell of the burning flesh brought
the inmates of the house to her side. After
she had taken the habit of St. Clare. she
underwent a mysterious ceremony of es
pousals with our Lord, and ever afterwards
there floated continually before her a mys
tical overflowing chalice, ef which she had
to drink, and which filled her with anguish
as she drank it. Our Lord crowned her
with a crown of thorns, which seemed to
pierce into her brain, but of which nought
was visible but the scars. Lastly, in His
love He stamned her with the marks of His
five blessed wounds. Often in an ecstacy
she went through and suffered the Agony
of the Cross, her body writhing and her
bones cracking with the fearful torments.
Through all the pain her only love was the
Cross. "Satiate me with the Cross," was
her cry ; and she embraced the very trees
in the garden because they reminded her
of it. An agony of three hours closed her
long but beloved martyrdom, her very
death being like our Lord's an act of obe
dience, for she could not die until her su
periors had given her leave.
Once, after the Saint bad carried more
than thirty pitchers full of water up two
flights of steep stairs, her feet were dread
fully galled, and she was quite exhausted
and ready to faint. Whilst she was in this
state our Lord appeared to her, bearing His
cross, and said, "Look at the cross which I
am bearing, see how heavy it is." At this
sight she felt her strength restored, and her
heart burned with eagerness to suffer yet
more for the love of Jesus.
July 2s.
ST. GUTfLAKE, HERMIT.
Of royal birth but of a wild and adven
turous disposition, Guthlake at the age of
fifteen joined a robber band, and became
famous through the kingdom of Mercia for
his daring deeds. One night after nine
years of this life, as he lay awake in the
forest, new thoughts of death, the vanity
of earth, and the joys of heaven stirred his
heart; whereupon, waking his companions,
he bade them ebhoose another eabef, a he
v wA bhimsel fa th eatre of C hrist
Tearing himself from their entreaties and
embraces, he exchanged his arms for the
dress of a rude peasant, and humbly beg
ged admittance into the abbey of Repton.
There be did penance two years ; when,
moved by the example of the desert 8aints,
he withdrew to the marshes of Lincolnsbire
to lead a hermit's life. In this solitude he
suffered the most terrible assa'ta from the
evil spirits. They east him into foul
swamps, reproached him incessantly with
the auns of his youth, and once seemed to
have brought him to the month of hell
itself. But Guthlake was stronger in his
weakness than in the most brilliant days of
his youth. He prayed constantly, and
when quite worn out drove the devils of
by the name of Jesus, and made frequent
acts of hope. He died, in 714, in the odor
of sanctity, at the age of forty-seven, and
the famous abbey of Croyland rose over
his grave.
It was a dreary and fearful waste to
which God called Guthlake, but it became
a holy and refreshing sanctuary before be
died. Morning and night an angel visited
him, and whispered the secrete of heaven
to him as be knelt in prayer. The lower
creatures obeyed him. The birds and the
fishee came at his call and ate out of his
hand, while the swallows would peron on
his head and knees, and let him help them
to build their rsets. To one who expressed
serpi-e he said, 'Know ye not that all
created beings unite themselves with him
who unites himself with God T"
Never despair. It is a brave 'potto and
a brave man's armor. Bright, beautiful
t Hope; the antidote of all the et s which
r sprang from the fatal box of Pandora.
What a dreary, dark world this would be
without its smile. It springs eternal in the
heart, for it is the immortal longing of the
a soul which earth can never fill.
Man never is, but always to be blessed.
v Strike out of the hearts and lives of men
I this hope of future good and happiness,
and it would be the death of human efforts
and life. Hope! it is the mainspring of
every deed and effort of the world since
man came into it, and will be so until the
"crack of doom." Is there a life so hope
less and miserable as not to be warmed by
its smile? Is there a calamity so great
i hope will not rise from its ashes? Is there
a crime so dark and heinous that L ode wi 1
not lighten or color ? Is there poverty so
bleak that hope will not transform into
affluence and ease T Is there a misfortune,
sickness, poverty or death that the light of
hope does not illumine? As the rainbow,
it spans the heaven of man with its eternal
faith, and gilds the world with its heaven
born joy. Hope gilds all of earth, and
brightens even the portals of the tomb.
Hope on, hope ever, and if the reality
never comes, the joy of hoping will have
cheered and lightened our lives, and will
find its fruition in the heaven from which
it sprang.
This ever longing, hoping for the future
is the imprint of immortality, and the
impulse of man. All nature teaches the
same lesson of hopefulness. Winter thaws
into spring, and spring glides into smiling,
fruitful summer, and the land is teeming
with the fatness of man's toil and nature's
bounty. Let us, therefore, be hopeful
and act, as well as feel so, and the cloud
now hanging as a pall about us will be
rent asunder, and the bright sky of pros
perity will shine again upon our path.
With this hopeful spirit, and the energy I
inspired by it, every rivulet and spring of a
industry will open, and the land be filled I
with prosperity and wealth. We have been I
acting the part of the man in the fable, cry- I
ingly by. We must put our shoulders to a
the wheel, and if we do it manfully and
hopefully at will surely turn. Heaven helps
those who help themselves; and while
heaven has been smiling and opening op
portunities for us, we seem to have lost all e
energy and manhood, and simply called
upon Hercules to do the work our own a
hands should have accomplished. -Is it a a
wonder that the wheel does not turn, and
that business is stagnant, money scarce and
industry idle.
To the determined will there is no fail
ure; it overleaps every obstac'e and
turns defeat into victory. Before the
determined will even Nature's obstacles
melt away; the sea is bridled, and the
lightning of heaven speaks its thoughts.
Look at the dykes of Holland; the Alps
girdled, and oceans united; and then say
what is possible for the energy and will of
man. It has made the cold and sterile soil
of New England the laboratory of wealth,
and its capital city the rival df ancient
Athens in its best and palmiest day. Is
the energy of the past palzied and the
blood that once danced so bravely to gallant
deeds curdled in peace by the frostof adver
sity ? Impossible. If misfortune is upon us, a
let as meet it bravely, and like all dangers
it will seem less by looking it squarely in the
face. Is confidence wanting between man
and man ? Let us set the example and trust
one another. Is money scarce and indus- c
try standing idle in the market placeT ?
Let us unlock the spring, circulate the
money now idle in bonds and securities, and
labo: will smile in plenty, and a rich bar
vest will be gathered by the brave will
which has brought it into'life. If we suf
fer let us examine into the cause, and with
intelligence, hope and energy we shall find
the remedy and be brave enough to apply
it.
So far we have taken counsel of our fears.
let us henceforth take counsel of our hopes,
our manbood, and the indomitable will
which in the past has conquered the forest,
man and nature, will conquer all our il!s,
and peace and prosperity will blees our
children and ourselves. It is a shame to
our manhood to despond. With such a
nation, its industry scarce touched; its
resources of wealth illimitable ; its terri
tory rolling from sea to sea; with any
shade of climate and every production of
nature; with room and opportunity for
a hundred millions of people; with nlosti
totions of learning and liberty; with free
dom in speech and action, and a broad and
fair field for each and all, there is no room
or place for despondency or despair. We
should blush for our intelligence and man
hood in allowing the present condition of
affairs to exist. It is flying in the face of
heaven, and making little of its glorious
gifts, to thus hide them in our coward
life. Never despair, but let us each and
all gather the lesson before us; and with
hope animating us with a new and higher
trust in man and heaven, bend our shoul
ders to the wheel, and it will turn the
stream ofprosperity upon us, and we shall
go on to fill the deetiny whieb Ood and
