THE CHURCH OF ALL AGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 1 December 1888
THE CHURCH OF ALL AGES. Faith of the world-wide Church! where'er I roam, In sea-girt isle or continental plain, I find in thee a guide, in thee a home: To thee upreared some consecrated fane. And yet, O holy Faith! what other creed Provokes such hatred, such contempt as thine? What other so maligned in word or deed, So little thought of as thy truth divine? His Cross, who did Himself thy way prepare, Through many ages thou hast nobly borne, And still in present times thou hast to bear The unbeliever's taunt, the wordling's scorn! And worse than the sharpest stroke of direst foe, ..-: Thy inmost heart they pierce and deeply wound. Who —once thy children —seek thy overthrow," And foremost in the opposition ranks are found. Yet still, against thy mission from above, ; In vain the slaves fit Pride and Error rage; The Saviour's promise shall thy safety prove, Though earth and hell their fiercest contest wage. And still, O holy Church! Thou shah pursue, Fearless of ill thy works of love a...
TO OUR FRIENDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 1 December 1888
TO OUR FRIENDS. In asking the support of our parents and friends for The Sacred Heart Review, we feel that neither plea nor apology is necessary. Our object being to obtain a thorough knowledge of the doctrines and practices of our holy religion must not only disarm all adverse criticism, but it should, on the contrary, command the warm encouragement of all who approve of our efforts to employ profitably our leisure moments. In the Advanced Class of Christian Doctrine we study the sublime truths of faith, the history of Holy Church, her labors to improve man's condition and her beneficent influence on society, and these different topics are illustrated and explained by our reverend instructor, who expects us to read whatever may have any bearing on the work of the Class. Now we intend to give every week in this little paper the result of our studies, instructions and readings. - WE DO NOT AIM AT AUTHORSHIP, nor at original composition. We merely copy for our own instruction —for you...
WHAT A PROTESTANT WRITER SAYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 1 December 1888
WHAT A PROTESTANT WRITER SAYS. LYING CHURCH HISTORIANS. Sir Francis Palgrave, a Protestant writer of some note, was born of Jewish parents in London ill 1788, and was a distinguished antiquary and historian. He died in 1S61. "Abstractedly from all the influence which we have sustained in common with the' rest of the civilized commonwealth, our British disparagement of the Middle Ages has been exceedingly enhanced by our grizzled ecclesiastical or church historians of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. These "standard works,'' accepted and received as Canonical books, have tainted the nobility of our national mind. An adequate parallel to their bitterness, their shabbiness, their shirking, their habitual disregard of honor and veracity, is hardly afforded bv the socalled " Anti-Jacobin" during the Revolutionary and Imperial wars. The history of Napoleon, his Generals, and the French nation, collected from these exaggerations of selfish loyalty, rabid aversion, and panic terror,...
TRUE MEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 1 December 1888
TRUE MEN. Some men above and before all else are true Christians, sincere believers in Christ, and his earnest and devoted followers; men having at heart to practice the divine precepts for the love of their Divine Author, and for the sake of the excellence such practice begets, much more even than for the honor such fidelity may win them : men true to God, to His truth, to their consciences and to themselves, in every age of life, in every walk and rank of society, in every calling and trust, under every difficulty and t.ial and temptation. We should heartily endeavor to be true to ourselves as He who is the Way, the Truth and the Life wills us to be, and we shall not fail to be true men, whose deeds and achievements shall surely glorify our Father in heaven as well as our earthly country. "This above all: to thine own self be true. And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man." Our true self is what we are in God's mind, what He wishes us to be...
Poetry. FAIR IS MY NATIVE LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 1 December 1888
Poetry. FAIR IS MY NATIVE LAND. Fair is my native isle, Proud is she, too; Sweet is her kindly smile, Loving and true. Exiled ones sigh for her, Hiave men would die for her, Such love have I for her So would I do. Dark has her story been Down through long years; Oft her sweet face was seen Wet with sad tears; Now all looks bright for her, Now comes delight for her, Freedom and right for her, Placed midst her peers. Far in the olden time High was her fame; Nations in every clime Blest her dear name. Peace comes once more to her. Fame as of yore to her, Each breeze wafts o'er to her. Praise and acclaim. —fT.D. Sullivan in the Nation.
HONOR BEFORE HONORS. PROM THE SPANISH. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 1 December 1888
HONOR BEFORE HONORS. PROM THE SPANISH. CHAPTER I. The natural aspect of the Sierra is irregular and striking, its vegetation rich and varied. There, monotony and sameness are unknown. The country everywhere asserts its characteristic grandeur, notwithstanding the progressive culture that invades it with plough and oxen, training the growth of its pines, placing bounds to its wild woods and flowing streams, and robbing the corktrees—those vegetable St. Bartholomews, martyrs to civilization—of their bark. Thus, in the most sudden and picturesque manner, is blended cultivated and rustic scenery ; plains and rocky hills alternate; here a noble oak, entangled in brambles, is surrounded by its plebeian relations, the delicate leafy dwarf oaks, not far from a clear and limpid stream, that gallantly bathes the feet of a melancholy willow, whose slender drooping branches hang over its waters, and inhale the slight perfume of the bay laurels, worn by the gay sons of the mountains on gala days...
THE FAITHFUL FRIEND [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 1 December 1888
THE FAITHFUL FRIEND When Adam was driven out of Paradise, all the animals that had formerly delighted to follow him fled at his approach. In deep sorrow he sat down upon a stone, and covered his face with his hands. Soon he heard a rustling in the bushes, and felt a soft tongue gently trying to lick his face. He looked up and met the liquid eyes of a dog, brimming over with affection and compassion for his fallen master. And Adam was comforted; for he found there was still one creature that forsook him not, but preferred his company to a life of wild liberty. And ever since the dog has been of all animals "the friend of man."

THE SIGN OF THE CROSS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 1 December 1888
THE SIGN OF THE CROSS. From want of reflection, we fail to attach to the sign of the Cross the importance that it merits It was first instituted by the Apostles themselves who, invested with the authority of Jesus Christ, taught this religious practice to the first disciples of the Gospel. The sign of the Cross is the sign of the Christian ; that is to say, it is the outward sign which distinguishes the Christians from all other men. And why is this? ist. Because it recalls to him who makes it, and to those who see it made, that Jesus Christ is the God of Christians and the Lord of their holy lives. Because it reminds us that God has loved us so much as to give Himself up for our sakes to suffer on the Cross, and that we must love Him in return with our whole hearts. It places incessantly before our eyes Jesus Christ crucified, and Jesus crucified is the Divine and living rule of life to each one of His disciples, and I lis sacred Cross their mortal law. The sign of the Cross recall...
REFLECTIONS ON FAITH. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 1 December 1888
REFLECTIONS ON FAITH. "When the Son of Mao cometh, will He find Faith on the Earth?" —Luke xviii.. 8. If lie were to come at this moment would He find it in us? Where is our faith? What are the proofs of it? Do we believe that this life is only a short passage to a better ? Do we believe that we must sutler with Jesus before we can reign with Dim ? Do we look upon the world as a vain show, and deatli as the entrance into true happiness? Do we live by faith? Does it animate us? Do we enjoy the eternal truths that it presents to us? Do we feed our souls witli them, as we nourish our bodies with healthful aliment? Do we accustom ourselves to view everything with the eve of faith? Alas! instead of living by faith, we extinguish it in our souls. How can we truly believe what we profess to believe and act as we do? May we not fear lest the kingdom of Heaven be taken from us and given to others who will bring forth more fruit? This kingdom of Heaven is faith when it dwells and reigns in th...
