TIME FOR PRAYER.
Even in the midst of war It is pos sible for a people to observe a sen sil.ile.oalm. There is no need or sense ii getting'excited. There is a phase iri human'expression that is character ised-in Anier'u a by the term "slop ]Jng over." 'It describes the condition? of riiirid rtf those who are honestly overwrought by excess of their own feelings or are trying to work on the feelings ofv others. Some people can Ifull a "crisis" out of their pockets like the conjurer extracts the rabbit. In'times like the present there is virtue in keeping cool. The singu lar men who seek the bubble reputa tion at the cannon's breech and not, like Shakespeare's man, ai the mouth, must needs both saw and split the air with gestures that conform or may not conform with their vociferous ex clamations. Hotspur was an excellent soldier but rash and fell victim to the cooler sword of that warrior whose memorable words are: "In peace there's nothing so becomes a man as modest worth and sweet hu mility." This suggests a solemn duty on. those who form the public opinion of America. Factors which cannot be explained or traced create men and women who influence the opinions of their fellow men. The remaining jioast. of democracy is that if it can hot give equality of power it does guarantee equality of liberty. Public opinion is formed by those who think most forcefully, sometimes by those who express their views most as sertively and most frequently. A very few do the world's thinking. The great numerical rest is guided by any one who has the dominating power to drive his opinion home. It is given to only a select few to recognize their own limitations. Never before in our history was there more solemn obli gation laid on the molders of public opinion. This is no time for piaving on the .feeling or prejudices of a people. We have a tremendous responsibility and God will demand a reckoning from us as a nation. It is no time for brag or bluster but an hour when the mind, and heart of every true patriot will turn to God for light to see the way and for strength to follow the light. "We may well recall the answer of Abraham Lincoln to the visitor who suggested during the civil war that we pray God be on our side: Rath er let us pray that we be on God's side." THE CHILD. What is necessary to a child's prop er training? Archbishop Glennon of St. Louis, .Mo., answers this question as follows: "Responsible parents, a home, and an attitude on the part of the parents, of interest, affection and intelligence. And there must be, furthermore, and back of all, the high standard of liv ing, which will be a beacon light to lead the child upwards and onwards." To these elements of training still another must be added—the school. The Archbishop is very definite about the character of this school, which, he insists, must be a school that will am plify and strengthen' the teaching of the home. In such a school the mean ing of sacrifice, the value of obedi ence, the laws of God will be further inculcated. •in other words," said the Arch bishop, "the Catholic school is the necessary complement of the Catholic home, maintaining at once and ampli fying the child's responsibilities to •God—to his parents—to his home—to his country." CATHOLIC HOME MUST READ. The newspaper has become a veri table necessity, an indisputable por tion of our daily bread. It is with the intellectual food as it is with the ma terial food. Our bodily health is de pendent upon the. quality of our nour ishment, which must therefore be se lected in conformity with the laws of hygiene. In like manner the more precious health of our soul is deeply affected by the salutary or deleterious influence of whatever constitutes our habitual reading, that "pabulum" of llie soul. GOD'S LOVE THE ANSWER. In his "Meditation for Layfolk," the Rev. Bede Jarrett, O. P., says that "it has been made a taunt against the Catholic' rMVurch that she has made •Christianity nothing else than the re ligion of the Crucifix," and in a sense, continues Father Jarrett, this is per feetly true. Our thoughts move more 'swiftly to the Passion, because, a 'quite definite sense, the Passion is of more value in itself to us than the .rest Of the crowded moments of Our jSaviouf't* life on earth. Why is this jtrue? The learned Dominican answers •in tWfollowing passages, the truths of which we should all bring home to ourselves. "Because it is.through the Passion that we have been redeemed. But, surely, we make answer, He could have redeemed us without any of that agony He had no need to die, since every sintle action of His life could have made atonement for the sins of all the world. Yes, truly, He had no need to suffer: we could, «f course, have been saved by the simple decree of His divine will. There is but one answer to all this questioning as to .'•why He died. There is but one word that can explain the tenderness of I thQ ..Gruc ified:, 'God so Jcjv^d the., world,' 'Christ." also hatti" loved us" 'haV-Hi'g who were in ihe-wwnld,. thenMtt ttow. 'greater love than this 110 man hath £han that he lay down his own life ^v —C! J&. \et TW*-i]«i£S1 W** tifURQICALi •&£y> for his friend.' Blessed Juliana of Nor wich says in a. passage of beautiful phrasing, 'Love is His token. Who told it to you?—Love. Wherefore told 'He it to yon?—For love.' Yes, love is His token, Love alone supplies the reason for His death/ willingly suf fered, since this is the'highest expr*e^ /siqn of love. ,Truly, when 'lie Jitu^ upon the. Cross^ He cri^d out. that ujl was consummated, fojr even love,Al mighty could no further go. Like the penitent whose sins He forgave so freely, He broke the fair white alabas ter. box of His own dear body, and the whole world has been ,f}lleiHwith the fragrance of Jt. "Thus it is, then, that quite rightly the Passion and death of Our 1',lessee! Lord do come most, powerfully into our lives since it was by His death that we "were redeemed, and because His death represents to us the highest achievement that love can offer. Love expresses itself in the broken phrase of sacrifice. "It behooves me, therefore, to keep ever fresh in mind the Passion of Our Lord. How is this best to be done? By a tender devotion to the Five Wounds of Christ. The devo tion to the Five Wounds was so pop ular allover Christendom (witness its carved shield on the bosses of the roofs of our Cathedrals, its appear ance on the bench-head of our old par ish churches, its colored glory in the ancient windows), is so full of love, yet not of sentiment or gush, is so bracing with its refining fierceness of suffering, that it must find many who would welcome its reappearence in this modern world. It is an old de votion, but it is coming back, just because it does keep alive the memory of Christ's death. No one can be un manned, made effeminate by the sight of a wound. The sight must steady me, give* me the necessary sternness to meet, life sturdily, yet it adds to all this strength the tenderness of love. At Communion, or when I make my visit, and words and thoughts seem to fail, let me turn to these 'dumb mouths that open their ruby lips to beg the voice and utterance of my love." BCARINq ONE'S CROSS. Everybody in this-world has a cross of some kind to bear. It may bfj one lying unseen in the silence of the heart's profoundest depths or. it may be one that is painfully visible to all. To some God givest but one great cross to bear on others He showers what seems like a multitude of smaller ones. But, great'or sniail, or one or many, the cross is "there, and must be carried. Some bearers wreathe their crosses with the sharp thorns of repining and discontent others with the soft blos soms of patience and hope. It is large ly a matter of choice, resting with the bearer but it is the revelation of our experience that he finds his cross lightest who has learned bitter though the lesson is—to smile with others at his own miseries. ANGELS. God hath sent His angels To the earth again, Bringing joyful tidings To the sons of men. They who first at Christmas Thronged the heavenly way, Now beside the tomb door Sit on Easter day. Angels, sing His triumph As you sang His birth. "Christ the Lord is risen, Peace, good will oil earth." In the dreadful desert Where the Lord was tried, There the faithful angels Gathered ait: His side. And when in the garden, Grief and pain and care Bowed Him down with anguish, They were with Him thl Yet the Christ they honor Is the same Christ still, Who,* in light and darkness, Did His- father's wilL.

In browsing through Ruskin, I recent ly came across a passage which seem ed to me to be very simple and very rational explanation for the indifferr ence of the average Catholic to the social values of his religion. "As far as can judge of the way? of men," he says, "it seems to me that the simplest and most necessary truths are always the last believed and I suppose that well-meaning* people in general would rather regulate their conduct and creed by almost any other portion of Scriptiure whatsoever, than by that Sermon on the Mount, which contains the things that Christ thought it first necessary for all men to understand." How many of us have ever thought of the tremendous social forces that have been and are daily active in the sacraments and sacramentals and in the ceremonies of our Catholic ritual? And still there lies right at our very command a force which in itself would almost suffice to restore all things in Christ. The great heart of our religion, the keystone of its unity and strength, the immortal principle of its divine vital ity, has been from its very origin the Sacrament of the Altar, the Eucharist in the Mass, in Holy Communion, in the abiding Presence. Can we not recall the awe and the thrill of envy with which as children we heard of the Agape or love-feasts of the early Christians? How they gathered, pa trician and plebeian, master and slave, around the unbloody altar-stone to witness with far-kenning eyes of faith the renewal of Calvary. Surely here, if ever, was a leveler of class barriers, an inspiration irresistible of charity and brotherhood, a call to the practice of the social virtues so supremely and divinely practiced by the divine Vic tim of the Sacrifice self-sacrifice, for giveness, compassion, love supreme. Here was the brimming fountain where the martyrs drank their sub lime fearlessness in the face of the rack, the wheel, the lion and leopard, and the worst brutes of seduction. What stronger charter of equality and liberty and fraternity could be given to our race than that sealed by the blood of Christ, the price universal of our childship of God and our common human brotherhood? And so throughout the ages, in the splendor of gilded basilica and amid the majestic twilight of Gothic min ster, in the palm-thatched lean-to of the tropics and in the wind-swept sHaW' of the silent north, to prince and to pauper, scholar and churl, sin ner and saint, to Celt atid Teuton, Goth and Magyar an&.iAjalay and Negro and Indian the safoe eternal Beauty, ever old and ever new, has been appealing. He the fairest of children of men, whose delight it is to be in their midst, to be to them Saviour and Father and Brother and Food and Drink. What a social marvel is the daily consummated worldwide multiplica tion of the sacred loaves of Christ's eucharistic body in Holy Communion. What a factor making for personal purity, charity, honesty, and sobriety in every community is the daily ban quet spread at God's board. Like a magnet drawing even infinitesimal particles of iron dust, we gather from even casual contact with our fellows some of the diamond dust of their goodness and excellence, or coarser dust of their vices and faults. Surely the spiritual magnet of our souls will gather something, of,.the infinite ex cellence of Christ when we commune with Him in the closest and most k 1 :'vK despair .and ravishes right. It offends against fact atid is a stranger to logio. Its sooth ing is in sophistry, It divines the un real and walks iri tlie way of phan joms.

'I sat in the school of sorrow The Master, was teaching there But my eyes were dim with weeping And my heart was full of care. Instead of looking upward And seeing His face Divine, So full of the tenderest pity For weary hearts like mine, I only thought of the burdens, The cross that before me lay, So hard and heavy to carry, That it darkened the light of day So, I could not learn my lesson,. And say, "Thy will be done And the Master came not near me As .the weary hours went on. At last, in my weary sorrow, I looked upon the cross above And saw the Master watching With a glance of tender love. He turned to the cross before me 5 And I thought I heard Him say: j'My child thou must bear thy burden And learn thy task today. *'I may not tell the reason, 'Tis enough for thee to know That I, the Master, am teaching, And give this cup of woe." So I stooped to that weary sorrow One look at that face Divine Had given me power to trust him, And say, "Thy will, not mine." And thus I learnt my lesson Taught by the Master alone He only knows the tears I shed, But He has wept His own. And from them comes a brightness Straight from the Home above, Where the school of life will be ended, And-the cross will show His love. —Alice Pierce Murphy. RABBI LECTURES ON OUR LORD. Dr. H. G. Enetew, Rabbi of the Temple Emmanuel, New York City, delivered during the winter a courts* of lectures on "The Relation of Jesus to the Jews." Jewish interest in Jesus should be aronsed," Dr. 'Enelow argued, "by the fact that Jesus was a Jew. "It must mean something to the Jews," he said, "that a Jew should have had such incalculable influence in the religious life of the human race. Whether Jesus was original or not, whether He was right ov wrong, the fact of His influence and the fact that He was Jew cannot be ignored Modern Jews cannot, shut themselves in the silence of th£'centuries. What do we think of Jesus? Be our answer to the question what it may, we ought to formulate an answer. The object of this lecture course is to make some contribution to those who want to make an intelligent answer to the question." The fact that such a series of lec tures should have been delivered in New York by a Jewish Rabbi and that the lecture-hall was filled with He brew listeners, is one of the straws upon the surface of current Jewish thought to indicate that the old-time hatred and detestation of the Naza rene, as the Jews of old called Our Blessed Lord, is giving place to ad miration and pride in One Whom they are now boasting was a Jew. May it not be the entering wedge of Divine Providence bursting through the wall of Jewish prejudice and preparing the way for the entrance into the Jewish mind of the happy discovery that after all Jesus was the Messias and the Divine Saviour not only of the Gentile, bat of the Jew? —The Lamp. A GREAT ANGLICAN CHANGE. The London,.Catholic Times prints on its editorial page the following: We fear that it' the Church of Eng land Protestants of a hundred years ago or less could bear the Anglican cf today taking on religion or could .read their writings .in regard to it they would turn in their graves Doctrines which filled them witlv. alarm are now accented by Anglicans without demur. In last week's issue of the Church Times appears a letter in1 defence of the doctrine of Purga tory which shows that the writer, Mr, A. II. Baverstock, has been carefully studying, our theological authors who treat of the subject. Though appar ently an Anglican, he maintains that the Tridentine definition, "that there is a Purgatory and that the souls de tained there are aided by prayer and especially by the ^offering of the Holy Sacrifice" summarises the common be lief of Christians from considerably before the days of St. Augustine. At a meeting of Anglicans in All Saints Church Hall, Margaret street, on Sun day last the Rev. L. W. Greenstreet said a chaplain was. necessary in every school daily Mass should be voluntary, and there fehotild be oppor tunities for a boy to go tp confession And Mr. Ian Malcolm, St. P., said what was wanted was a CatKolic revival in the public schools. He would like to see Mr. G. K. Chesterton infusing into the masters the almost reckless gaiety of the Catholic, religion. It not so many years since such a speech might have cost Mi'- Malcolm his seat in Parliament. .If .the Anglicans have not reached the Catholic Church they are trying to api-' it. ji/IAGDALE-N."

John D. Tabb. IQNS..OF A VANISHING PROTES TANTISM. Revelations of the Census Bureau present 'a danger for Protestantism that needs1 attention, says The Chris tian-Evangelist (Disciples, St. IjOtiis) The danger can be met, it thinks, only by an evangelism that''more nearly resembles that of the Catholic Church than the revivalism of the "Protestant. In'the first Federal birth statistics ever published the States of New York, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Minnesota, the New England States, and the District of Columbia are dealt with. The highest death-rate in this area was found in" New Hamp shire and the lowest in Minnesota. The highest birth-rate was in Massa chusetts and Connecticut, and the lowest in Maine. The greatest ex cess of births over deaths was in Minnesota and the least in Maine. This journal finds here disclosed some interesting facts with regard to the marked difference of family in crease between those of foreign and native extraction. The excesses of the birth-rates of the foreign-born over the native-born population varied from 40 per cent, in Minnesota to 300 per cent in Connecticut. "Apparently these figures indicate two tendencies in bur American social life. First, they indicate that the white race is slowly supplanting the colored in population and, secondly, that the l'oreigii-born whites are sup planting the native horn. In this lat ter fact lies a great danger for Ameri can Protestantism. The majority of our foreign-born population are Jews, Catholics, or Freethinkers. The rowth of the Roman Catholic Church is largely due to the greater propor tion of births among immigrants The same church which prescribes celibacy for its clergy, encourages large families among the laity. It is noticeable that Catholicism grows up almost entirely by absorbing it§ own children rather than by proselvtism Protestants frequently let their chil dren get away from them and then hold big revivals to bring them back We need an evangelism which will hold the children quite as much as one which will bring them agaijt into the fold." tin The Literati) Diaast. THE SPIRITS AND THfelR WORLD. When treating of the distinction among God's creatures, St. Thorn !.: says that after the distinction of,go.i! and evil in creatures, the next djstiiu tion to be considered is that betwe- n corporeal and spiritual creatures, i e then proceeds to treat (1) of the pure ly spiritual creature which in Holy Writ is called angel, (2) of the crea ture wholly corporeal, and (3) of the composite creature, corporeal and spiritual, which is man. In the .flr-f article of the treatise on the angeis. St. Thomas asks the question whetls there is any entirely spiritual cr a ture, altogether incorporeal. Ar* there creatures of stjqh a nature thai they do not depend at all, in any way whatsoever, upon corporeal matt r, either as regards their substance, or their activities? In offder to understand this question iwell it is necessary to know the differ ence between what is simple and what is spiritual. Every spiritual being is a simple being, but the converse is not trtie. There are many things that are simple "which are not "altogether incorporeal The principle of activ ity must necessarily be simple, with out parts, thSt is unextended. *The living principle of a plant qf of an animal must be simple, otherffise it is quite impossible to explain the unity of any one action. Now, al thdu£h these principles are simple or incorporeal no one of them is spiritual or entirely incorporeal. The living principle of a plant, e. g., depends upon corporeal matter'iPHorder't^imt forth any activity at all, and it ca^ he -shown" that if this very activity ^e pe'mJs upon^eeXxBorcal matter so (Joes the very substancfV-^-hich is the prin1 ciple of that activity depend upon mat ter. Is there, "then, a .creature which depends in no way, as regards ei|her substance or activity, upon corpoteftl matter? IP- there is, it is- callq^jL.^ spiritual substance and is sometftipfe higher in perfection of being than 41 mere simple substance. That there exists such an order of beings is of faith there are innumer able passages in Holy Scripture which speak of the angels. Viewing ^the question on the side of reason, it must be admitted that no demonstrative proof can be brought forward to prove the existence of purely spiritual be ings only probable reasons can be ad duced. St. Thomas's argument, here in the "Sumina," comes to this, that if there- are no angels there is a great g&pin ^a_uiiiverse. r* s —Rev. A. Whltaere, oJp. NOT IN NON-CATHOLIC HOMES. The .York Commissioner of Charities. Mr. Kingsbury,_ has written and assured Cardinal Parley, lb" Archbishop, 4hat- dependent jC&Um'U' children have not been placed in nor.- A SAINT FOR THE WEEK. ST. GREGORY NAZIAN2EN. 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 fair est worldly prospects, and for some years lived together in seclusion, self discipline, and toil. Gregory was raised, alrhost. by force, to the priest hood and was in time made Bishop of Nazianzum by St. Basil, who had become Archbishop of Caesarea. When he was fifty years old he was chosen, for his rate gifts and his con ciliatory disposition, to *e Patriarch of'Constantinople, then distracted and iaitf waste by Afian and other here tics. In that c^y he labored with wonderful success. St. Jerome boasts that he had there sat at his feet, and calls him his master and bis cate chiSt in Holy Scripture. But his low liness, his austerities, the insignifi cance of his person, and, above all, his very success, drew down on him the hatred of the enemies of his Faith. He was persecuted by the magistrates, stoned by the rabble, and thwarted and deserted even by his brother bishops. During the second General Council he resigned his See, hoping thus to restore peace to the tormented city, and retired to his na tive town, where he died A. D. 390. He was a graceful poet, a preacher at once eloquent and solid and as a champion of the Faith so well equipped, so strenuous, and so exact, that he is called St. Gregory the Theologian. The Arians were so irritate^ at the decay of their heresy that, they pur sued the Saint with outrage, calumny, and violence, and at length resolved to take away his life. For this pur pose they chose a resolute young man, who readily undertook the sacrilegious commission. But God did not allow him to carry it out. He was touched with remorse, and cast himself at the Saint's feet, avowing his sinful intent. St. Gregory at once forgave him. treated him with all kindness, and re ceived him amongst his friends, to the wonder and edification of the whole city, and to the confusion of the heretics, whose crime had served only as a foil to the virtue of the Saint, LIQUOR RESPONSIBLE FOR CRIME WAVE.

"Near ly every one of tlie men and women arrested," said Mr. Windsor, "was either drunk or to some degree under the influence of liquor.
