DO THE FRENCH GO TO CHURCH?
One hears from returning soldiers various answers to this question. In The Living Church (August 30), an Episcopalian weekly, Rev. Dr. Wil liam 0. Woods, of the Maine Agricul tural Experiment Station, gives us this testimony: Although not one of the "great ones" invited to reply, the writer ven tures to scatter a few crumbs broad east" from his experiences as an en listed man in the American Expedi tionary Forces in France. A Protestant's Testimony. "What is the attractiveness of Rome? It is the wonderful devotion of her adherents. For six months 1 was stationed in Marseilles, with lib eral pass privileges. I do not know how many parish churches there are in the city, but 1 can recall visiting eighteen, and in four I was a frequent worshiper. "Conditions were the same in all: the first Sunday Mass said at 5 o'clock, with Masses following at hour or half-hour intervals until noon, and the Church filled to capacity from beginning to end three or four daily Masses even on ordinary ferias, and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament almost every evening. Last Sunday rrorning, as I wended my way to the early Eucharist at our tiny Anglican chapel, 1 had to pass two Roman MISSIONS IN ALASKA. Sister Teresa of the Child Jesus has been appointed queen of his large Diocese of Alaska by the Right Rev erend Pishop Crimont, S. J. In that vast r^ion of about 600,000 square miles, the largest missionary field in the world, there are only twenty priests. Think of a priest in summer walking 600 miles, covered with mos quitoes, his "chapel" on his back, a little food to sustain him—depending on the streams for drink. What an opportunity for the "Little Flower" to fulfill her promise to "spend her heaven doing good on earth." As the needs are many and the means few, the Bishop has estab lished in Juneau a "Guild for the Lit tle Flower," in order to support the priests, and open schools and hospi tals. Anyone wishing to aid in this work can become a member of the Guild by contributing $1.00 or more a year. All contributions should be sent either to the Bishop or to Miss Rachael Barrington, Connecticut Apartments, Washington, D. C. NEW BISHOP. Mgr. Nicholas, who has been made Titular Bishop of Panopolis, and coad jutor to Mgr. Vidal, Vicar Apostolic of the Fiji Islands, was recently conse crated in Sydney, Australia. The cere mony was performed by Mgr. Catta neo, Apostolic Delegate to and New Zealand. A Impressed by her manner, the mur derers paused. 'You wish to kill me,' said this new Maccabeas, 'an$ you are free to do so. But first I have a favor to ask of you: it is that you make me the last victim. Kill my children first, and then I will die happy in the knowledge that your tortures cannot make the poor little ones deny their faith.' "Exasperated, one of the Boxers plunged his sword through the young est child so fiercely that he himself fell to the ground. Then he withdrew the weapon and seizing the tiny body dashed it against the wall of the church. "He killed the three other children in the same hideous manner, after which he despatched the mother with a single stroke. Her bleeding body fell over the corpses of her dear little martyrs as if it would protect in death as in life." so TRIBUTES*. Latin countries." Australia MOTHER'S LOVE. Rev. Alfred Botty, B. F. M., of East Mongolia, in recalling some of the events connected with the Boxer up rising about twenty years ago, tells one story worth repeating. He says: "Innumerable examples of remark able heroism shown by these unlet tered and humble Mongolians could be cited. Suffice it to give the following: "In the Church of Tsing-yeul an ex amplary Christian mother had taken refuge with her four children, one boy and three girls. The butchers ap proached her, brandishing their great knives and sabers. But the mother held up her hand with a commanding gesture and cried: 'Stop, I have a word to say to you.' them RELIGIOUS ORDERS FOUND THE MISSION FIELD. We are accustomed to hear men tioned a certain few of the congrega lions engaged in apostolic work that! we do not realize how many Orders were not founded for that purpose— but they dedicate certain of their members to such work and help swell the army of cross-bearera in remote quarters of the earth. In all the societies represented in £he official lists of the Society tor TirtM.Ti churches, in each of which I used to pause to say a few prayers. Always, rain or shine, there were crowds of devout worshipers thronging the altar rail regularly each Sunday morning, I feel sure, several hundred com munions were made in those churches before 7 o'clock. "Oftentimes a new Mass would be commenced before all the faithful had been communicated at the one preced ing. This may seem shocking to some, but the crowds that press our Lord necessitate it. even though, of course, the Blessed Sacrament is adminis tered only under one species. "Such times as I was able to attend Benediction, invariably I found, even on ordinary week-day nights, a com pany of forty or fifty gathered to gether to 'receive the blessing from the Lord.' The congregational singing made a deep impression the fervor of the 'Tantum Ergo' and the 'Gloire Immortelle ail Sacre Coeur' is a mem ory that does not fade. "I never passed a parish church without entering for at least a mo ment of prayer, and never was I dis appointed in finding some of the faith ful at their devotion. The French Catholics believe their re ligion, and practice it. Most Episco palians apparently do not believe the religion of the prayer book, certainly they do not practice it. Therein lies the 'attractiveness of Rome" in the MISSION FIELDS. Propagation of the Faith number about forty, and are as follows: Benedictines, Franciscans, Jesuits, Dominicans, Lazarists, Oblates, Sa cred Heart of Issoudum, Sacred Heart (Picpus), Congregation of the Holy Ghost, Lyons African Missionaries, African Missionaries (White Fathers), Paris Foreign Mission Society, Bel gian Foreign Mission Society, Belgian Foreign Mission Society (Scheut Fa thers), Milan Foreign Mission Society English Foreign Mission Society (St Joseph's), American Foreign Mission Society, Salesians, Society of the Di vine Word, Verona African Mission aries, Augustinians of the Assumption Oblates of St. Francis de Sales, So ciety of Mary, Pious Society of Mis sions (Pallotins), Eudists, Redemptor ists, Holy Gross Fathers, Passiopists Carmelites, Trappists, Children of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Norber tines, Trinitarians, Foreign Mission aries of Rome, Foreign Missionaries of Parma, Foreign Missionaries of Turin Society of the Divine Saviour, Sacred Heart Society of Soissons, Fathers of the Holy Cross, Augustinians. WHEN HE WRITES HIS LETTERS In the little mission of Our Lady of Victories, in Sierra Leone, is a poor missionary very deserving of assist ance. For two years and a half he has kept every part of the mission running, without assistance. "I have been sacristan, altar bread maker teacher, catechist, cook, planter, and everything else necessary to keep a mission going," he writes. "It was impossible for me to have an assistant because, on account of the war, the number of missionaries was very lim ited, so I have been very, very busy In fact, the only reason I have a little time on my hands to write you this letter is that I am down sick and can't leave my bed. "There is one way in which you could help me a great deal, and that is by trying to interest your good workers in supporting a few catechists in my mission. I have only one, but there is work enough for a small army of them. You know they have a great hold on the people because they under stand them far better than a foreigner can ever hope to. For example, native catechist can discover where the sick people are concealed and can save many a poor soul at the point of death with the waters of baptism. "The small sum of four dollars is enough to support a catechist for whole month, and I can't begin to tell you the amount of work he is willing to perform for that. Would you be so good as to try to send me enough to hire even two or three for the coming year?" NO FALSE PRIDE ABOUT APOSTLES. IN stead~ and societies are represented in the mission world. Of course not all ofi f0ITthe s^e^kee!) ft'dean and weli them are entirely devoted to seeking the salvation of the pagans—they OUR That when missionaries ask for money, it is not for personal use is surely known to all Catholics now. Hungry and ragged they often are, because when an offering comes there are so many pressing needs for it that they can not bear to use it either for clothes or food. Not long ago a missionary received a little offering with which to purchase a much-needed cassock. His old one was so patched that the Sisters wrote they were really ashamed to patch it any more. Now comes an answer from this zealous apostle saying: 'You'll forgive me, won't you, if in- ofVuy'in6a new cassock I'spend the money for a far more worthy pur pose. I can wear my old one very well patched for me, and there are so many other things for which I need the money." of the number of those- doing God's work whose glory it is to wear out and not to rust out.—Mother the* Murp Aloysim i&vriey. a.v. THE CHINESE ARE DOING AWAY *1WlTH THE USURERS. 'M THOUT Getting ahead of the greedy money lender with his usurious rates is a val uable thing for the poor of any coun try, but to the Chinese it means real emancipation. For this purpose a so ciety has been formed, consisting of numerous circles of thirty members, in which each person contributes to the general sum required by the appli cant. Thus debt is avoided and wed ding and funeral ceremonies need no longer ruin a family for life. Rev. Father Yer Eecke, B. F. M., of North Kansu, gives us some informa tion regarding the new Mutual Benefit Associations: "The society assists only honest per sons and is designed to encourage the industrious class and keep them from inclining heavy debts. Of course, its methods are strictly Chinese. "To illustrate, I will describe the ettlement of a dowry. Formerly, the borrower would have recourse to a usurer, with the customary results. Now the father invites thirty friends to his home, where a simple dinner is served. This affair always takes place on the fifteenth of the month for some reason. The invitation is rarely disregarded, since the Chinese love so cieties. Each man promises to bring the small sum required on the fif teenth of the month to the host, who is thus supplied with the dowry. "The money is not regarded as a gift. It is simply a loan for which credit is given for thirty months, the creditor paying monthly installments. "Every thirty days, therefore, on the date affixed the associates meet at al ternate homes to transact their busi ness. In China, time is not money. "The formalities of the meetings would seem childish and fatiguing to an American, but they are of deepest interest to these men, who have few financial affairs with which to interest themselves." When our Lord hung upon the Cross was cried, in bitter scorn, "He saved others Himself He cannot save." It was true. If He had saved Himself, He never would have saved others. If He had come down from the Cross, He would never have re deemed the world. THE POPE AND THE POILU. (Continued from page 6.) 'We walked to Rome. It is a Ion'? journey. Madame has been to Rome? Ah! It is a large city, and very won derful, like Paris—but not so beaut ful or so—pardon? Madame asked about these, my medals? Oh, they are nothing. They gave them to so many! But, yes, naturally, 1 am proud rf them, but—well, I—I do not like to speak of them. It was nothing, noth ing at all. I—oh, well, if madame in sists, I was given this for—for just knocking down two of my comrades Madame thinks, perhaps, that I am joking? But it is true. I saw a shell coming, so 1 knocked Paul Pillotti and John Baldo flat upon their backs What godcT did'that do? I jumped on top of them, you understand? Ma dame does not yet comprehend? It is so simple! I caught the shell. It is that which has given me this ugly face. But I was telling madame about Rome, and that is more amusing than medals. "I found a little work to do. I lived with my two friends, and was able to pay my share of the lodging and food. But often we went hungry One becomes accustomed to going hungry if one is a soldier. However after I had been in Rome for som time, I began to wish very much see the city, to see all the places I had read of in my school books, i one day I went to the Vatican. "I had always wanted to see t' Vatican, and I had always wanted to see the Pope. When I was a little boy 1 dreamed about going to see the Pope, and now I was in the same cit with him, I commenced wonderin how I might accomplish it. "My friends said, 'You are mad No one can see the Pope!' But in spite of that my desire grew. Tt seemed to me, as I thought more ar. more about it, that I must see 11" Pope. I began to believe that I had walked all the way to Rome just for that and nothing else! I could n» get it out of my mind so, as I sa one fine day I took myself to the Vat can determined to do everything po sible to procure an interview with Hi Holiness. "There was a man standing guard on the steps. He had on the cloth of a king. But he could not frighten me. I went up to him and said: 'I wish to see the Pope.' He looked at me then that man smiled and began walking up and down. So I walked up and down beside him. I said: 'I wish to see the Pope.' He smiled again. 'You cannot see the Pope,' he said. 'No one can see the Pope. It is against the law. The Holy Father does not receive common French sol diers.' 'But,' I replied, 'if the Holy Father knew how much I wished to see him, I am sure he would receive me.' You see, madame, I had the so strong desire to clap my eyes upon His Holiness that I was very insist ent, and I kept marching up and down, up and down beside that man so beau tifully dressed, trying to keep step with him, which was difficult, his legs were so much longer than mine! Finally, 'Monsieur,' I said, 'if the Pope knew that I—' Then, suddenly, the good God sent me an idea! 'Mon sieur,' I repeated, 'if the Pope knew that I had saved the lives of two of his sons, and that I have been given the Croix de Guerre for it, do not you think he would be willing to see me?' Ah! That was a wonderful idea, sa pristi! That man stopped himself, then turned me about by the shoulder. "What is your name?' he demanded. I told him. 'Where do you live?' he asked, and I told him that also. Then he asked me many more questions, and finally I left him and went back to my friends and recounted all that had happened to me. They laughed at me, Madame. They said I was a TOE CATHOLIC BULLETIN, CCT0B1R 4, ltlf dream of such a thing! "That is what they said, madame. But you see 1 had" dreamed of it. I had wanted to see the Pope all my life! It had lived with me, a great desire, and since I had come to Rome it had grown until it seemed that, if my longing were not satisfied, I should lose my mind! "Well, they said I was a fool, so I tried to put the thought of seeing the Pope out of my head altogether. I worked hard, and a month passed. "Then one day a messenger came to our house, came—and asked for me! Imagine my astonishment, I who had never received a letter in all the time I had been in Italy. Who was there to write to me?" He paused a moment, a whimsically wistful smile playing over his poor twisted lips. I glanced at Marie. She was sitting forward, holding tight to the window frame as she bounced gro tesquely whenever we took the bumps a little too fast. There was an eager look in her eyes which she tried to hide as soon as she caught me watch ing her, but her interest was too great. "Go on, monsieur, go on!" she mur mured breathlessly. Then she remem bered her manners and once more sub sided into her corner. "Ah, but yes, madamoiselle, I will continue. Madame is interested now, eh? It is not such a stupid little his tory after all? It has its points, yes? Well, as I was saying, I was aston ished. I opened the letter with trem bling fingers, and I suppose that my face showed my surprise, for my com panions said: Sapristi, but he is clumsy through fright!' And I was frightened, madame understands, more so than ever before in my life! There is nothing in a trench to frighten one like a Pope! ride to heaven, as that His Holiness velope. much v/orn at the corners.* would receive a common poilu who With shaking fingers and the aid Of had given his name to one of the Vat-' his teeth, he managed to extract there! ican guards! I was a donkey to even contents. "There, madame," he said proudly, When at last I was able to look at what I held in my hand, I saw it was a paper with a great seal at the top, and on it were printed words which told me to come to the Vatican two days later to see the Pope pri vately. At first I was so bewildered that I did not believe it was true, and thought that there must be some mis take. But as I gazed upon that big sheet of paper, I began to realize that it was for none other than myself. Then, of a truth, I became frightened indeed. I did not want to see the Pope! I told my friends so. I said that, after all, it must be nothing much, this see a Pope. The Holy Fa ther was not a very handsome man, and I believed I would send a letter to His Holiness explaining that there had been a mistake: that his invita tion had, extraordinarily, got into the wrong hands. No, I did not care to go I would stay quietly at home— and read about the Pope in the news papers 'But my friends tore their hair! They raged! They swore, cursing me for a ninny. Per Bacco! But I must go! It was a command. I could not disobey. It was as if God in His heaven had sent th$ angel Gabriel to summon me before the throne. Was I mad? Had I lost my mind? Not go? 1 was a fool! *1 most certainly would have to go, there were no two ways about it! "You see, madame, I had what they call 'colfeet,' of an appalling coldness, and it was with very slow steps that finally I did drag myself there. "And ah! What I found! If I had been frightened before, now my legs were shaking so I c6uld hardly stand upright. My mouth was so dry that I thought I never would be able to tell them my own name. "There was a tall gentleman who met me at the door. He passed me on to another gentleman, who gave me yet to another. I thought I would never get through with those 'gentle men! But finally I was taken into a little room, very high and with a beau tiful window at the end which looked like the gates of paradise. And as I stood there, trembling, a figure all in white came through a door and I al most wept, madame, because he was so unlike a Pope and so like my own dear father. And he talked to me just as my father would talk. He put his hand on my shoulder. He ^sked me questions about everything: about my father and mother my little sisters, r.y brother who was shot at Ham about my medals my friends whom I had saved when the shell came— everything. And he spoke so gently —just as my father would—that I had no more fright and told him about my parents, who must have been killed when the Germans took our village of how I myself knew through a com rade that my sisters had—how the boches had taken them away of how I had come to Rome because there was no place for me to. go, my vil lage being*dust, my home gone. And the Holy Father put his arm about me and there were tears in.his eyes as he took my hand in his—but yes, ma dame, this one, all twisted, and use less—and said he was proud to feel the flesh that had bled for France close to his own flesh! "Ah! That was my hour madame! I kissed his hand and^ he blessed me, and when I came out "again into the sunshine it seemed brighter than I had ever seen it before. And when I told my companions about it after wards, they were very happy, for me —and perhaps a little jealous, too. They could not do enough for me. We had wine that night and they dfank to my health, 'The Hero of the Vatican!' One would have thought I had done something wonderful, but that kind and gentle man, who lives alone, shut up like a prisoner in his garden! "Then after nearly -three months had passed, one day there came an other letter. It was written on a big sheet of paper, with the great seal at the top, just as before. But this time it was not printed. It was a letter from the Pope, written with a pen, and in his own handwriting! Madame does not believe me, I can see it in her eyes. But it is true. I will show you, madame. She will be convinced." He fumbled in his pocket for a mo ment, his eyes shining, his whole man rer one of excitem|fit. Marie watched fool that one might as well expect the sood God Himself to send down him like a hawk." Finally he brought i flaming chariot in which I might it out, a large, soiled, crumpled en and leaned back with the air of a lawyer having won his suit. It was written in a rather fine, ver^ foreign hand, and in Italian which, unfortunately I am not able to read but at the bottom of the single sheet, before my staring eyes, was the un mistakable signature: Giacomo, Mar chesa della Chiesa, His Holiness Bene dict XV, Pope of Rome! I thought Marie would burst. Her 1 face assumed an alarming purple, and i she sputtered in French, babbling in coherent terms of endearment which she showered upon the Pope and the poilu alike. Then I became conscious that the hero of this astonishing tale was speaking once more. "Madame sees that I have spoken the truth. It is of a verity the sig nature of the Pope. I. always carry it with me wherever I go, it is my one treasure. Madame would like me to translate? Good—but no, I do not have to look at it, I know it by heart. It says that the Holy Father had had inquries made—it took three months, madame understands—and that he is, glad to inform me that both my father and mother are alive and are now in England in a place called Upper Meith that in this letter I will find a draft on the Bank of Rome, money enough to take me to England in the most simple way, which would he by New York because of the war that His Holiness blesses his' son and wishes him Godspeed upon his jour ney, and that the peace of God the Father may now and forever rest in my heart, even if it is not to be found in the world at this time. Then the Pope signs his name. That is all. I am waiting for a ship to take me to England, and then I shall see my mother and my father, and perhaps 1 will be able to get work to do. They say we who are unfit can always find work in England. "And now, if madame will have the goodness to allow me to alight, I will do so after expressing the gratirude I feel toward madame for befriending a lonely French soldier. Madame has been more than kind." \s he stood at the side of the road making funny little bows, his cap in his hand and his scarred boy's face looking up into mine, my heart nearly overflowed. I know trify eyes did. And as for Marie! "Won't you tell me yottr name?" I asked. "Ah, no, madame, if you please! That would spoil it. That would spoil it. That would make you feel, per haps, that you ask me to your house, and I—well, I would rather not. I should like to keep this afternoon— as it is, one of the pleasant memories I shall take with me from New York. Besides, I may at any moment receive word that I must embark for England. Adieu, madame—mademoiselle, and again 1 thank you," and with a gay little wave of the cap he turned and limped away. I watched him disappear. Then I slammed the door to and snapped at Gifford to drive home. "And you needn't blubber, like a great baby, Marie," I said, wiping the tears frojn my eyes while I sniffed In a most unladylike manner myself. "There must be thousands just 'like him, 1.^01* soul!" "Ah, DUt so—so young, madame, so y-young and b-brave! Oh, the poor little boy! The poor little cabbage!" "It has been a wonderful experience. Think of picking up such a story as that, and in Central park." "It is not his story, madame," Ma rie whimpered. "That is nothin But the young gentleman himself! So charming, so -gay in all his medals! Ah, it is to make the heart ache—and madame in her old gray! I told ma dame she should wear her blue fou lard. Then, perhaps, monsieur would have consented to return with us with madame. It is a. thousand pit ies •. "You foolish creature! Do you sup pose the boy noticed what I liad on, an old woman like me?" "One can never say. If madame had worn her blue foulard, he might have!" replied my incorrigible maid as we drew up at the curb once more.
