1 V y" V* v v I W 1 CCTRINAl. Appended will be found the eighth sermon of the series on "Catholic Worship." This sermon was pre |»ared by Rev. William P. Joyce, pastor of the Sacred Heart church, Butte: The Liturgical Language. The last sermon of the series was on the priestly vestments the sub ject of today's instruction is the Liturgical language of the church. 1 The services of the church may tie classed under two heads—Litur gical and extra-Liturgical. Litur gical services include the Holy Sac rifice of the Mass, the Divine Office, and all services prescribed in the Roman Missal, Breviary, Pontifical and Ritual. Such services are of ficial acts of the church itself. By extra-Liturgical are meant services which are not official, as the hymils and prayers found in the popular, ap proved manuals of devotion. The Liturgical services of the Catholic church are the same al ways and everywhere, and, at least In the western church, are conducted in the Latin language. The extra Liturgical services are usually in the vernacular. We say that in the western rite the language is Latin, for there are at present 11 other Liturgical languages in use in the church, prominent among which are the Greek, Syriac, Coptic and Sla vonic. It should be noted here, however, that these Liturgical lan guages are only local, whereas the Latin is used in the divine service everywhere throughout the Catholic world. Historical Reasons. We yfihall consider on this occasion the historical reasons that led to the adoption of the Latin as the great Liturgical language, and also the dogmatical and practical reasons for its fitness. When the church be gan to fulfil her divine commission, Latin was the official language of the civilized world. The Roman em pire held undisputed sway not only over civilized Europe, but over large portions of Asia and Africa. The Latin tongue followed the Roman standards and became the language of the empire. Naturally, then, the church adopted the language she found prevailing among the people. Furthermore, Rome was the eity selected in the designs of provi dence to be the center of Christiani ty. St. Peter, divinely appointed head of the Apostolic college, es tablished his See in the Eternal City, and the successors to the chair of Peter have always been the bishops of Rome. From Rome went forth the standard-bearers of Chris tianity to carry the gospel of Christ to nations far and near. They used the Latin tongue in the celebration of the divine mysteries. Withstands Changes of Times. Upon the disappearance of the Roman empire in the fifth century, Latin gradually ceased to be a liv ing tongue among the people, and the new nations began to use their own distinctive tongues. The church, however, retained the Latin as her Liturgical language. It had become consecrated and sanctified by use. Her envoys and messengers, like those of the ancient empire, contin ued to employ it. St Patrick, when he preached Christianity to the Gael, and St. Boniface, when he carried the glad tidings of the redemption to the Teuton, brought with them the official language of the people, but in the divine services they used the lan guage of the Roman church. Thus did Latin become the common language of worship of all the Christian nations of the west. Viewed merely as a language, the Latin possesses great perfection. It is distinguished from other tongues by its dignity, gravity, clearness and precision. Apart, therefore, from the manner of its introduction, it is by its very nature the language best suited to express ''the dignity of Christian worship. Advantages of "Dead" Language. Its value as a Liturgical language was increased when Latin ceased to be a living tongue. Being a so-called •dead* language, it is not subject to change, but retains all the force and significance it had in the days of Cicero. Living languages, like the English, are constantly undergoing changes, new words are being added and old words are discarded or change their meaning. The English of Chaucer, though the purest of its age, would be understood with the greatest difficulty today by any Engli3h-speak ing person. Faith finds its expression In worship, and as our faith is God given and not man-made, so the essen tial features of true Christian wor ship are fixed and determined. The more unchangeable the language of worship, the better it is adapted to preserve intact and to transmit unim paired the original deposit of faith. Happily, therefore, was Latin chosen as the Liturgical language of Holy Mother Church. V Typifies Unity. The aimost universal use of the Idfctin language in Liturgy is also an evidence of the unity of Catholic wor ship. How beautiful, and how consol ing, Is that uniform celebration of Holy Mass throughout the world! Could you, dear brethern, visit today the Catholic" churches of Europe, or Africa, or Australia, or China, or Japan you would hear the priest use the same language, the same words as the celebrant of the Mass is using here this morning. You would feel as much at home as you do here in your own church. What an inspiring thing to be able to pray in the very language and in the very words that the early •, •,* 4~« ... 4- ',: ^f ITUBG Sermons on Catholic Worship. Christians used In the dark depths of the catacombs to recite the same prayers and to chant the same hymns that resounded in the simple churches or in the great cathedrals of our fore fathers But, it might be urged, why does not the church use a language which the people can understand? Mass i« a Sacrifice. The reasoning of those who In sist that the Mass should be offered in the vernacular is based on a false notion of the nature and object of the Holy Mass. The Mass is not a sermon but a sacrifice, which the priest ofTers to God for himself and the people. When the priest says Mass, he is speaking not to the people^ but to God, to whom all languages are equally intelligible. The congregation could not be ex pected to hear all that the priest says even if he spoke in the vernac ular, for his face is turned from them, and the greater part of the Mass is said in an undertone. We read in the old Testament and in the first chapter of St. L'uke that this was the manner ordained by God in the ancient dis pensation—the priest offered sacrifice and prayer for the people in the sanctuary, while they prayed at a dis tance in the court. Printed in the Vernacular. Moreover, at the time of Christ, the language which the Jewish priest used was the ancient Hebrew of the Patriarchs, and not the Syro-Chaldaic which alone the people understood. It should be noted, too, that even in the Oriental rites mentioned above, the language of the Liturgy is not the vernacular but the ancient language which is not understood by the people buf only by the learned. Finally, it cannot be said that the Catholic is held in ignorance of the prayers offered by the priest, for all the prayers at Mass are translated into the vernacular, and every Cath 61ic can and should follow the priest by reading these prayers in his Missal or his prayer-book. Of All Climes and\Peoples. The Catholic church embraces in its fold the children of all climes and nations and people and tongues. What a wonderful advantage it is to her to have a common medium of com munication with the Latin as her of ficial language. Scientists feel keenly the need of a common language^ Forced to adopt the vernacular, so limited and so variable, they are handicapped in securing the wide dif fusion of technical knowledge essen tial to scientific progress. More for tunate were their predecessors of the Middle Ages, for then Latin was the language of the arts and sciences. Dip lomats, too, have often failed to reach a basis of common understanding, be cause diplomacy has no universal lan guage. No such handicap is felt when Mother Church calls her bishops to gether in council. Though they come from every part of the globe and represent so many different nation alities, they are enabled through the mediuin of the common language of the church to communicate their thoughts, to disOuss questions, and to hold debates. Language of dkHstian Culture1. Latin is finally the language of Christian culture. The fathers of the early church generally wrote in Latin, which thus became the depository of the treasures of sacred literature Latin is also the language of the great theologians of the church. A national church can adopt the national language in its Liturgy, be cause it is confined to people who speak the same tongue. But a Cath olic, or universal church, must have a universal language. THE BUSINESS WOMAN'S SAINT. Business women should love St. Lydia. She was the first Gentile con cert baptized in Europe and is one of the few business women mentioned in the Bible. She was a saleswoman hence she can sympathize with the troubles met by female clerks. We are told of her in Acts XVI, where it is said that she was "a seller of purple." She was from the city of Thyatira, but was living in Philippi, a Macedonian town, probably as an agent for great dyeing works located at Thyatira. The,text indicates that she was a Gentile proselyte to Judaism, and "the Lord opened her heart to at tend to those things," that St. Paul preached. She was baptized, together with her household, and St. Paul, St. Titus, St. Timothy and St. Silas made her home their headquarters during their stay in Philippi, at her humble invitation. Perhaps she was not very well off financially for II Corinthians II seems to indicate that there was a good deal of poverty among the Macedonian converts. But she cer tainly showed herself willing to do her share, and the Scriptures use the word "constrained" in telling of her invita tion to the saints to make her home their missionary headquarters. This meant far more in those days of per secution than it would now, and even today4 it would be no little thing for a working woman to turn her house over to a group of missionaries to stay as long as they wished. SETTING THE MONSIGNOR RIGHT. Monsignor Croke Robinson, a well known English preacher, who died some time ago, was once giving a Re treat to some Sisters of Mercy. This day he had just finished giving the Meditation of Death, and felt,, as usual, overstrained and Overwrought. 1 1 *. *•'. He went into the convent garden for a little relief. There he saw«an\ old Irish Lay Sister at work and going up to her, he spol^e out his heart. "O Sister," he said, "I am so terri fied at the thought of death!" She looked up at him, and with the holy freedom of her race, replied: "Then, Father, you ought to be ashamed of yourself!" The aged Monsignor wag startled for a moment, and said "Sister, what do you mean?" "I mean,'" she answered, "that God has taken care of you all through your life. Ought you not then to be ashamed of yourself if you distrust His loving kindness Just for the mo ment when you will need it most?" "Thank you, Sister," wa3 all the Monsignor replied at the time. But he later, in telling Father Vassel Phillips about the matter, assured him that this simple reply changed the whole tenor of his thoughts. As a fact, Monsignor Robinson died a most peaceful and happy death. BUT GOD IS SWEET. My mother told aie so, When I knelt at her feet Long—so long—ago She clasped my hands in hers. Ah! me, that memory stiff My soul's profoundest deep—* Wo wonder that I weep. She clasped my hands and smiled. Ah then I was a child— I knew not harm— My mother's arm Was flung around me and I felt That, when I knelt To listen to my mother's prayer, God was with mother there. Yea! "God is sweet!" She told me so She never told me wrong And through my years of woe, Her whispers soft, and sad, and low, And sweet as Angel's song. Have floated like a dream. —Father Abram«/.' EDUCATIONAL FINANCIAL Upon. SPIRITUAL COURTESY. It sometimes happens that those who may be the most exact in the courtesies of social life unconsciously treat Our Divine Lord in a manner that they would by no means use to their" most casual acquaintances. Perhaps you have noticed it, perhaps not yet I am sure you will agree with me when I point out a few of these lapses from good manners, says Hallam in The Grail. Some years ago I entered -a church during the noon hour with a non Catholic friend. There were a goodly number of people there who had stepped in during their dinner hour to pay a visit to Our Lord. On leaving the churph I asked my friend if it were not edifying to see so many giv ing a few minutes to prayer out of their short leisure. I was disa greeably surprised at her reply. "Well," she said, "to be perfectly frank, I was far from edified. True, I saw beads passing through theftr fingers, and their lips moving but neither kept pace with their eyes. Every person that entered the church seemed to be scrutinized by those already there." I had not noticod it, and told her so. "Then spare a minute from your own prayers next time, and notice," she said. For herself she had frankly entered the church to see its beauties, not being a Catholic—yet she had bowed her head in prayer for a few moments. She frequently visited our churches "for the artistic delight," she said, and had always noticed the same thing. "Do you mean to tell me?" she asked earnestly, and I thought a little wist fully, "that all those people really be lieve that Christ is Himself in His own flesh and blood there on that altar?" Of course I assured her that not the slightest doubt existed in their minds. "May God pardon them," she re plied. "They seem to treat His pres ence with as much indilference as if He were the janitor." I winced at her statement. Her expression seemed almost a blasphe my! An angry retort rose to my lips but, on catching the expression on her face, I restrained it. To her, that faith was denied. So stupendous a fact as that of the real presence was beyond her comprehen sion but that anyone could believe it and not be prostrate in adoration was also beyond her comprehension! (She has since been received Into the" Church.) But indeed is there not some degree of truth in her accusation? If the figure of the Sacred Heart were to as sume flesh and blood and descend from its pedestal to the altar steps what would be our demeanor? Should we not indeed prostrate ourselves at those Divine Feet? If we knew that Our Lord would assume for but one hour the appearance of the form of the human body that is there present, would we not make any sacrifice, endure any hardship that would en able' us to be present? Would we have one glance for anything or any body but our Divine Saviour?.., Oh, that I could only find words to tell of the reward that they will re ceive from this Adorable Heart, who employ themselves in making it known and loved. —Blessed Margaret The Apostle of His Family. Percy Brown, without doubt, is In Heaven with the angels and saints. Indeed, his short career was so un usual that he deserved a place among God's apostles. When a little fellow of five years he was a frequent visitor at a neigh bor's house next door to his own Protestant home. And for this rea son,—in one of the rooms of the good Catholic family, there hung a large and beautiful picture of the crucifixion of Our Lord.

He was awed and impress ed and constantly spoke about it at home. He was not understood, of course, and no attention was paid to his prattling. His visits to the pic ture continued, however, and the good mother of the Catholic home instinctively felt that there was something unusual about Percy. His two brothers took him to the public school when he was a little ovey six years old. But he was not satis fied there, and left after a few days, and, without the knowledge of his parents, went to the parochial school with a little Catholic friend of his own age. His brothers men tioned the matter at home, but when Percy seemed so happy his parents said it "made no difference," and permitted his continuance. The next year, during the Ember Days of September, the younger children of St. Mary's school w6re prepared for 7 ^T1v1*^* 'sH wjj,*""!* M. CORNWKliL, Cashier THE their first. confession. £ercy, who had learned his Cate chism and the method of confession, marched to the church with the rest and took his place near the box. A lady who was making a visit to the Blessed Sacrament in the church had her attention attracted to the children and was surprised to see the little "Protestant boy," who had nev er been baptized, seated with the Catholic children before the "box." She knew Percy fairly well, and was quite a friend of the little boy in fact, the picture of the Crucifixion to which we have referred was in her house. She immediately spoke to the Sister in charge of the class. "Sister, isn't that Percy Brown?" "Yes! Percy is going to make his first confession. He is well prepared." "But, Sister, don't you know every one belonging to him is a Protestant? Why,» the child has never been bap tized in any church." "What!" exclaimed the Sister, turn ing pale. "Percy not a Catholic— not baptized, you say?" "He is not a Catholic and has nev er been baptized," repeated the lady. "I live next door." The Sister lost no time in going over to Percy and. telling him that he could not go to confession—that she did not know that ha was not a Catholic. The effect upon Percy was startling. "Oh! Sister," lie sobbed, 'T am a Catholic. I do want to go and tell my sins. I ain't a Protestant." His grief was heart-breaking. The children all stood by and looked at the little fellow,, thinking he was re proved for some misdemeanor and the priest, hearing the noise, came out of the confessional and asked what was the matter. The Sister told him. Looking at the tear-stained little face and the swimming blue eytes, the priest smiled and "said: "Why, my boy, what is the reason you want to go to confession?'* "To tell my sins," said tile little Six-year old between sobs.

The priest hesitated. The little face was thoughtful, even though drenched with tears. "Well, you may come intoHhe con fessional. But you must stop crying and not distract your companions." And the priest returned to the box. Percy was' quiet at once, and when his turn came he went into th^ con fessional. When he came out he went straight to the altar railing, and knelt there in prayer. As he left the church he said to the Sis ter: "I'm going to bring my mother to Father tomorrow. I'm going to be baptized a Catholic." The Sister was rather surprised at the emphasis ofJ the little fellow, and said warningly: "Don't make your mother ai^ry, Percy. You ought to wait until you are older." "But suppose I should die!" said the little philosopher. "You told us your self, Sister, we would neVer see God without being baptized." The Sister acknowledged the fact, but, not wishing to cause trouble in a Protestant household, told Percy to say a fervent prayer before^ he asked his mother. What Percy told his mother we do not know, but the very next after noon she came to the rectory with Percy. She explained that the boy gave her no peace, insisted on being bap tized, and was so serious and earnest that she and his father saw no great narm in gratifying him and she asked the priest to baptize him. Per cy was radiant with joy. The good pastor baptized him, and the moth er, with a few others who were pres ent, watched the ceremony. Percy received the name of Joseph and was so delighted that he would answer to nothing else, except from his father, who always called him Percy.! He bought a small crucifix and wore it around his. neclC and con tinued his attendance at St. Mary's school. He was obedient and atten tive and possessed the usual amount of boyish liveliness. After a year or two he began to tease his mother about his two brothers. He told her that they never would go to Heaven if they were not baptized, and he \30ntinually spoke of the beautiful instructions and the many interest ing things that happened in the par ish school. In the end he persuaded her to send the other two boys to St. Mary's with him. The Sisters were surprised and, de lighted one morning to see his two elder brothers (not much older, to be sure) and have them placed on the school roll. The young apostle never ceased until he obtained their con "sent and that of their parents to their baptism and both boys re: ceived the sacred waters of regener ation.

In due time all three were confirmed and made their First Holy Com munion. 1 Percy now became an" altar boy, and his piety and diligence were re markable. He had an altar erected in his little bedroom at home, where he hung his crucifix and all the med als and sacred pictures he received at school. One day his father, an noyed at some childish misdemeanor, commanded him to tike "that Pop ish trumpery down." "If you don't," said the angry man, "I will throw the whole business into the fire and take you from the Papist school." Percy stood still, as if he were rioted to the spot. Then the large tears gathered in his eyes and rolled down his Cheeks and his frame shook with emotion. He fell on his knees. "Papa, papa," he cried, "you will break your little boy's heart. Oh! papa, you don't know how good they make me." The father's heart was tftuched to see his darling boy, his favorite son, in anguish. He lifted him up and told him that he mights keep his pic tures and stuff. But? Percy nestled to his father's breast, his heaving bosom and convulsive sobs showed how the little heart was wounded. After that his father never per mitted him to be crossed in his piety or his "religious notions," 'as he called them. Percy was frail, and to his parents he seemed like an angel, too sweet and rare to belong to this earth—his face was so pure and spiritual, his sayingfe so unusual, so "old fashioned," a£ they phrased it. After Percy left school he went to learn a trade, and sometimes had to make great efforts and even sacri fices to hear Mass on Sundays and receive the sacraments. On one oc casion he was detained late on Sat urday night and he cautioned his mother not to let him oversleep him self. "You know, mother," he said, "Catholics commit a mortal sin if they stay away from Mass on Sun day." His mother promised, but when she weht to call him he looked so weary and slept so soundly she "had not the heart" to rouse the poor boy. When he awoke and found the late ness of the hour he rushed out of the house without his breakfast and ran from church to church, only to find even the last Mass almost over. He returned home disconsolate. All week he was depressed and sad over this accident, and his mother assured him she would never disappoint him again. It was then that Percy asked her to go with him on Sundays, and to please him, she consented, and later accompanied him to Mass. One grace led to another, and before the end of the year she was baptized and made her profession of faith. Percy's whole heart was now set on the conversion of his father. But this seemed an impossibility. Mr. Brown had not interfered nor made objections when the rest of his fam ily followed Percy, but no example nor precept seemed to affect him.

We know not the thoughts that filled his innocent heart, but we know that his health began to decline. He was not nineteen, yet it' was evident he had not long to live. Work was perforce given up and the lad remained ftt home* Patient, gentle and uncom plaining, he prayed and read and 6e came the object of the tenderest love and care. One day he came on his father sit ting on the back porch with his own little Catechism in his hands. The boy said nothing, but his heart gafb a great bound of joy. "Bring him to the faith, Lord, awl take my poor life," he murmured. It was not long before the pro pitious moment came. The father knew what was passing in the boy's mind and had set to work to learn something of the religion which sur rounded him with such peace content. He felt that his cherished son was praying for him—nay, might be offering up his pure life for him. He resisted grace no longer. He spoke to the priest, was instructed and baptized and became a member of the Holy Catholic Church. Percy's soul was filled to the brflBi with holy joy. He lay on his couch, white and wan, but overflowing with happiness. He felt he was dying, but oh! it was easy now to die, when those he loved—mother, father, two brothers—were bound close to him by a common faith and would be with him in the spirit world by the controlling doctrine of the Commun ion of Saints. And one day when they gathered round his bed and watched the death damp gather on his fore head he smiled an angel's smile on their bleeding hearts and fled away to receive the crown of an apostle. Oh! can we doubt that hii spirit still .hovers over them and helps them to bear life's trials and its pains! "Blessed are the dead who die in tilt Lord, for their works live after them." —Reo.
