EIIIATURE LIVES OF THE SAINTS.
Augeast 19.
BLESUED MARY OF OIONIS.
B. Mary was born near Liege in 1180.
She married at fourteen, after a childhood
of remarkable santity. Her holy example
induced her husband also to devote him
self to good works, to live in chastity, and
distribute his riches to the poor, and
together they served a hospital of lepers.
Neither the mockery of the wprld nor the
artifices of the devil induced them to
abandon their holy purposes; and this con
stancy drew down upon them abundant
celestial benedictions. Mary was con
stastly rapt in ecstacy. Sbe worked many
'ltraeles, read the secrets of hearts, and
_toho saw:our Lord Himself in the Sacred
BH-er spirit was so occupied with
Sthekesence of God that nothing could
-distract her ; and she passed many days
without speaking, except to say, '1 desire
to receive the Body of our Lord Jesus
Christ," and after Communion she relapsed
again into total silence. Her tender love
and compassion for the sufferings of Jeansus
were so great that she conceived as ardent
desire for crosses. She never ate until
evening, and then only black bread.; but
the angels appeared to her at table, and
their heavenly convelsstion overwhelmed
her soul with delights. Being fl led with
humility and compunction, she had an ex
treme horror of the smallest sin, and,
although her life was so innocent, the
rigour of her penance was indescribable.
She died at the age of thirty-turee, in a
hermitage near Omgnies.
B. Mary could not behold a crucifix with
out being dissolved in tears. To stop
them she contemplated the majesty and
impassibility of God, but the remembrance
of what this God of Majesty had suffered
for her made them flow faster than before.
A priest once begged her to moderate her
tears and sighs, and pray in silence. Un
able to do this, she left the church; but
she prayed God to show the priest the
impossibility of a creature resisting the
operation of the Holy G:,ost. The same
day at Mass this priest was so filled with
tenderness that he was utterly unable to
restrain his tears, and he shed them so
copiously that his vestments, and even the
altar-cloths, were batht d with them.

ST. BERNARD.
Bernard was born at the castle of Fon
taines in Burgurdy. The grace of his
person and tl.e vigor of his intellect filled
his parents with the highest hopes, and the
world lay bright and smiling before him,
when he renounced it for ever and joined
the monks of Citeaux. Here his holy ex
ample attracted so many novices that
other monasteries were erected, and Ber
nard was appointed abbot of that of Clair- I
vaux. Unsparing with himself, he at first
expected too much of his brethren, who
were disheartened at his severity ; but
soon perceiving his error, he led them for- I
ward by the sweetness of his correction
and the mildness of his rule to wonderful
perfection. In spite of his desire to lie hid,
the fame of'his sanctity spread far and
wide, and many churches asked for him as
their bishop. Through the help of B.
Eugenius III, his former subject, he es
caped this dignity : yet his retirement was
continually invaded ; the poor and the
weak sought his protection; bishops, I
kings, and Popes applied to him for advice;
and at length Eugenius himself charged I
him to preach the Crusade. By his fervour, I
eloquence, an miracles Bernar kiudlea
the enthusiasm of Christendom, and two *
splendid armies were despatched against 1
the infidel. Their defeat was only due,
said the Saint. to their own sins. Bernard
died A. D. 1153. His most precious writ- a
ings have earned for him the titles of the
last of the Fathers and a Doctor of Holy
Church.
All his'brothers followed Barnard to Ci
teaux except Nevard the youngest, who
was left to be the stay of his father in his
old age. "You will now be heir of every
thing," said they to him, as they departed.
"Yes," said the boy ; "you leave me earth,
and keep heaven for yourselves. Do you
call that fair T.' And he too left the world.
At length their aged lather came to
exchange wealth and honor for the pov
erty of a monk of Clairvaux. One only
sister remained behind : she was married,
and loved the world and its pleasures.
Magnificently dressed she visited Bernard;
he refused to see her, and only at last con
sented to do so, not as her brother, but as
the minister of Christ. The words he then
spoke moved her s: much that two yea:rs
later she retired to a convent with her
husband's consent, ar:d died in the reputa
tion of sanctity.

ST. JANE FRANCES DE CIIANTAL.
At the age of sixteen Jane Francer do
Fremyot, already a motherless child, was
placed nuder the care ofa worldly-minded
governess. In this crisis she offered her
self to the Mother of God, and secired
Mary's protection for life. WLen a Pro
testant sought her hand, s!:e steadily re
fused to marry "an enemy of God and His
Church," and shortly arterwards, as the
loving and beloved wife of the Baron de
Chantal, made her house the pattern of
a Christian home. But God had marked
her for something higher than domestic
sanctity. Twochildren and a dearly loved
sister died; and in the full tide of pros
perity her husband's life was taken by the
Innocent hand of a friend. For seven
years the sorrows of her widowhood wer
increased by ill-usage from servants and
inferiors, and the cruel Importunities of
friends, who urged her to marry again.
Harassed almost to despair by their en
treaties she branded on her heart the name
of Jesus, and in the end left her beloved
home and children to live for God alone.
She was to found with St. Francis de Sales
a great order. Sickness, opposition, want.
boset her, and the death of children,
friends, and of St. Francis himself follow
ed, while eighty seven bouses of the Visi
tation rose under her hand. Nine long
years of interior desolation completed the
work of God's arace ; and in her seven
tieth year, St. Vincent of Paul saw at the
moment of her death her soul ascend, as a
ball of fire, to heaven.
It was on the 192h of March, 1609, that
Madame de Chantal bade farewell to her
family and relations. Pale and with tears
in her eyes she passed round the large
room, sweetly and humbly taking leave of
eash. He sen, a boy of Afteen, used
m, ,to in '
duce his mother not to leave them, and at
iaut passionately Song himself across the
door of the room. In an agony of distrees
bshe passed on over the body of her son to
the embrace of her aged and disconsolate i
fatbher The anguish of that parting
reached its height when, kneeling at the
feet of the venerable old man, she sought
and obtained his last bleasing, promising
to repay in her new home hi sacrifioe by
her prayers. Well might St. Francis call
her "The valiant woman."
August 29
ST. BTYMPHORIAN, MARTYR.
About the year 180 there was a great
procession of the heathen goddess Ceres
at Anton in France. Amongst the crowd
was one who refused to pay the ordinary
marks of worship. He was therefore
dragged before the magistrate and accused
of sacrilege and sedition.
When asked his name and condition he
replied, "My name is Symphorian ; I am
a Christian." He came of a noble and
Christian family. He was still young and
so innocent, that he was said to converse
with the holy angels.
The Christians of Anton were few,
and little known, and the judge could not
believe that the youth was serious in his
purpose. He caused the laws enforcing
heathen worship to be read, and looked
for a speedy compliance. Sympborian
replied that be must obey the laws of the
King of kings. "Give me a hammer," he
said, "and I will break your idol in
pieces." He was scourged and thrown into
a dungeon. Some days later this son of
light came forth from the darkness of his
prison, haggard and worn, but full of joy.
He despised the riches and honors a ffred
to him, as he had despised torments. He
died by the sword, and went to the court
of the heavenly King. Little more than a
century later the Roman empire bowed
before the faith of Christ. Many miracles
spread the slory of St. Symphorian and of
Christ the King of Saints.
The mother of St. Symphorian stood on
the city walls and saw her son led out to
die. She knew the honors he had refused
and the dishonor of his death; but she
esteemed the reproach of Christ better
than all the riches of Egypt, and she cried
out to him, "My son, my son, keep the
living God in your heart; look up to him
who reigns in heaven." Thus she shared
in the'glory of his passion, and her name
lives with his in the records of the Church.
August 23.
ST. PHILIP BENIZI.
St. Philip Benizi was born in Florence
on the Feast of the Assumption, 1233. That
same day the Order of Servites was found
ed by the Mother of God. As an infant
at the breast Philip broke out into speech
at the sight of these new religious, and beg
ged his mother to give them alms. Amidst
all the temptations of his youth he longed
to become himself a servant of Mary; and
it was only the fear of his own unworthi
ness which made him yield to his father's
wish and begin to practise medicine. After
long and weary waiting his doubts were
solved by our Lady herself, who in a vis
ion bade him enter her Order. Still Philip
dared only offer himself as a laybrother,
and in this humble state he strove to do
penance for his sins. In spite of his reluc
tance he was promoted to the post of mas
ter of novices; and as his rare abilities
were daily discovered he was bidden to
prepare for the priesthood. Thenceforth
honors were heaped upon him: he became
general of the Order, and only escaped by
fight elevation to the papal throne. His
preaching restored peace to Italy, which
was- wated by civil wars, ;,anat the
Council of Lyons he spoke to the assem
bled prelates with the gift of tongues.
Amid all these favors Philip lived in ex
treme penitence, constantly examining his
soul before the judgment seat of God, and i
condemning himself as only fit for hell.
He died, a true child of Mary, at the Arde
Maria, on the Octave of the Assumption i
1285.
St. Philip, though he was free from the
stain of mortal sin, was never weary of
beseeching God's mercy. From the time
he was ten years old be said daily the
Penitential Psalms. Oa his deathbed he
kept reciting the verses of the Miscrere
with his cheeks streaming with tears; and
during his agony he went through a terri
ble contest to overcome the fear of damona
tioc. Bit a few minutes before he died
all his doubts disappeared, and were suc
ceeded by a holy trust. He uttered the
responses in a low but audible voice; and
when at last the Mothor of God appeared
before him, he lifted up his arms with joy
and breathed a gentle Eigh, as if placing
hie soul in ,er hand.
August 21.
ST. FiI:EN, ABBOT.
The sanctity of St. Pee Ben was so
eminent that he has been called the fellow
citizen of the angels, the chief of solitaries,
and the prince of the desert. He was an
Egyptian, and about the age of fifteen he
entered the desert, and persuaded his six
young brothers to do the same. They em
braced a life of prayer, labor and extreme
mortification, ofte:, passing many days
without tasting food. Although so severe
towards himself, PI'nlen's spirit was one
of marvelous gentitness towards others.
Ho would say, "If a monk wishes to taste
true peace, hie muost learn never to judge
another, and oe convinced of his own
nothingneee." Aultary once said to him,
"My father, wen I receive a visit from
one of !bet rethren whom I know to be
guilyf a considerable fault, I refuse to
-dmit him; but if I know him to be a good
religious, I receive him with joy." St.
Poemen answered, "If you are kind to him
who is good, yon should be doubly so to
him who is ailing." He also said: 'God
came down to earth to see the guilt of
Sodom before punishing it, to teach us
never to believe the evil we hear of an
other." And again: "A jaust man who
subdues his passions may give lessons to
others; but if he is subject to them he is
like one who pulls down his own house to
build that of another."
Framen died at a great age, about the
year 451.
St. Pcasen greatly disapproved that bit
ter zeal which blames every little fault
without consideration for the weakness of
human nature, and which is ever prone to
judge and condemn our neighbor. Some
solitaries said to him, "My father, when we
see any of the brethren asleep at the hour
of prayer, ought we not to awaken them 7"
But Ptmen answered, "When I see a
brother thus overcome by sleep, I only
wish I could pillow his head upon my
kniLs, that be might rest the better."
ST. LOUIS, EtlO.
The mother of Louis told him she had
rather see him die than commit a mortal
sin, and he never forgot her words. King
of France at the age at the age af twelve,
he made the defence of God's honor the
aim of his life. Before two years be had
erushed the Albigensian heretics, and
forced them by stringent penalties to
respect the Catholic Faith. Amidst the
Bares of Government be daily recited the
Divine Office and beard two Masses, and
the most glorious churches in France are
still monuments of his piety. The fearless
protector of the weak and the oppressed,
he was chosen to arbitrate in all the great
feuds of this age between the Pope and the
Emperor, between Henry III. and the
English barons. In 1248, to rescue the
land which Christ had trod, he gathered
round him the chivalry of France, and
embarked for the East. There, before the
infidel, in victory or defeat, on the bed of
sickness or a captive in chains, Louis
showed himsilf ever the same, the first,
the best, and the bravest of Christian
knights. The death of his mother recall
ed him to France; but when order was
re-established, he again set forth on a
second crusade. In August, 1270, his army
landed at Tunis, and though victorious
over the e: emy, succumbed to a malignant
fever. L uis was one of the victims He
received the viaticum kneeling by his
camp-bed, and gave up his life with the
same joy tlat be had given all else for the
honor of God.
When Louis was a captive at Damiletta,
an Emir rusbed into his tent brandishing a
dagger red with the blood of the Sultan,
and threatened to stab him also unless he
would make him a knight as the Emperor
Frederick had Facardin. L,nis calmly
replied that no unbeliever could perform
the duties of a Christian knight. In the
same captivity he was offered his liberty on
terms lawful in themselves, but enforced
by an oath which implied a blasphemy,
and though the infidels held their sworda'
points at his throat, and threatened a mas
sacre of the Christians, Louis inflexibly
refused. His dying words to his son were,
"'Pnish all who speak evil of God or of
His Saints."
If anybody had told the poor people who
were massacred up in Wyoming-Ger
trnde's family and the rest of them-a
hundred years ago, if anybody had told
them that their most miserable deaths at
any time in the fature would be made the
foundation for a country-side junketing.
they would have died all the harder and
would have felt that posterity was sitting
down upon them, hard. And yet the
fierce and unreasonable longing on the
part of the average American for centen
nial exhibitiocs has ended in bringing
about precisely this disordered condition
of things, in making the massacre thelbasis
of the jolliest frolic that the vale of Wyo
ming has ever known.
Overtasking the Energies.
It is not advisable for any of us to overtaak
our energies, corporeal or mental, but in the eager pur
suit of wealth or fame or knowledge, how many trans
gress this salutary rule. It mustbe a matter of great
importance to all who do so to know how they can
regain the vigor so iecklessly expended. The remedy
is neither costly nor difficult to obtain. Hostetter'a
Stomach Bitters is procurable in every city, town and
settlement in America, and it cmpenssates for a drain
of bodily or mental energy more effectually than any
invigerant ever prescribed or advgrtiaed. Laboring
men, athletes students. journa'is. lawyers, clergy
men, physicians, all bear testimony to its wondrously
renovatin powers. It increases the cspabilities for
undergoing fatigue, and counteracts rte injurious
effects upon the system of exposure, edentary habits,
unhealthy or wearying evocatlons, or an insalubrious
llimate. and is a prime ahlerative, diuretic and blood
depurent.
