The Advanced Class. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 23 March 1889
The Advanced Class. The Advanced Class, composed about 400 pupils from 14 to 18 years | of age, provides religious instruction for many children, who, after Con- j firmaticn, would consider their religious knowledge complete if an addi- [ tional opportunity for study were not furnished. The Class, under the supervision of Rev. Francis Butler, meets Sunday afternoons and Wednesday evenings. The text-books are Schuster's Bible history and Deharbe's large Catechism. Essays are written and read, book premiums and gold crosses are awarded to those who successfully pass the annual examination, and at the end of the Sunday School year the graduation exercises take place, diplomas being given to all who have finished the prescribed four years' course of study. RULES OF THE CLASS. i. All girls and boys from fourteen to eighteen years of age are members of this class and are, in conscience, bound to attend. 2. Children from fourteen to sixteen years of age attend class on Sunday afternoons at...
A PRACTICAL LESSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 23 March 1889
A PRACTICAL LESSON. We recently read in one of our exchanges a short story, recounting how a father took half a dozen sound, rosy-cheeked apples, without a speck or sign of decay about them, and, after showing them to his children, placed them on a plate with another apple which was partially rotten at the core. After leaving them thus for some time, he again exhibited them to his children, when all the apples—those that had been sound as well as the unsound one —were found to be rotten. Here is a practical lesson that comes home to parents who exercise no care or restraint over their children, as regards the friendships they form and the companions with whom they associate. Their children may be dutiful, obedient, innocent, pure and devout ; but if they are allowed to come into contact with the vicious and impure, with those who are disobedient and indevout, they will soon catch the taint of evil from them and become like them. There is another practical lesson in the anecdote abov...
THE CROSS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 23 March 1889
THE CROSS. The Cross of Christ has presided over all the destinies of the modern world ; it is linked with its trials, and with all its glories ; it has served as a basis to its institutions, and a standard to its armies; it has consecrated the most dazzling pageantries of civilization, and the most secret emotions of piety : it has sanctified the palaces of emperors and the huts of peasants. — Moutalambert.

Where Catholic faith is strong and active the father and mother gather their children around them in the Lenten nights and say the Rosary together. The grace and blessing of Almighty God must he in the home where this is done : and the example of prayer set to children, must be productive of the best results in their after life.
The Gospel. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 23 March 1889
The Gospel. THIRD SUNDAY OF LENT. In the gospel of this Sunday (St. Luke xi. 14--2S) the evangelist tells us that, after our Lord had cast out a devil from a dumb man, some Pharisees in the crowd accused the Saviour of casting out devils by the power of the prince of devils. They rashly judged our Lord of collusion with the Evil One. Rash judgment is a very common sin ; sometimes it is committed through thoughtlessness, sometimes through envy, or hatred, or jealousy. Theologians tell us that rash judgment, when seriously entertained in any important matter affecting the neighbor's reputation, is a mortal sin ; and that it consists in condemning the neighbor, without authority or reason, as guilty of some evil word or deed of which he may be innocent. To understand the malice of rash judgment, we must distinguish between detraction or back-biting, calumny, false suspicion and rash judgment itself. Detraction or back-biting is the sin committed by speaking of the neighbor's true, thou...

THE CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 23 March 1889
THE CHURCH. The Catholic Church is not a sect, and cannot be properly described as such. Sects are religious communities which have been cut oft" or sected from some original body, with which they are no longer associated. Thus, the sectarian quality belongs to the Protestants who cut themselves off' from the Catholics at the time of Luther's Reformation. Every Church should be considered upon its own claims, and in its proper character. — Mew York Sun.

The art of printing, it is said, readied the distant island of Iceland as early as 15S4. One Gudbrand Thorlaksod, Bishop of Holum, not only translated the Scriptures into the Norse language, but he caused the printing to be done at his own private press, cutting the blocks lor decorations and capitals himself. The technical excellence of this first edition of the Icelandic Bible (a stout folio of three volumes) is said to rival the contemporary productions of Germany.

THE JESUITS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 23 March 1889
THE JESUITS. While the nations of the Peninsula hastened to spread religion in the newly-explored regions of the East and West, the Jesuits, the missionaries of that age, either repaired or atoned for the evils caused by their countrymen. In India they suffered martyrdom with heroic constancy. They penetrated through the barrier which Chinese policy opposed to the entrance of strangers, cultivating the most difficult of languages with such success as to compose hundreds of volumes in it ; and, by the public utility of their scientific acquirements, obtained toleration, patronage, and personal honors from that jealous government. The natives of America, who generally felt the comparative superiority of the European race, only in a more rapid or a more gradual destruction, and to whom even the Quakers dealt out little more than penurious justice, were, under the paternal rule of the Jesuits, reclaimed from savage manners, and instructed in the arts and duties of civilized life. At the...

THE "CATHOLIC" CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 23 March 1889
THE "CATHOLIC" CHURCH. A new version of an old history, that recalls the advice of St. Augustine to those who tried to rob the Catholic Church of its significant title, is told by a correspondent of the Boston Transcript in a way that can hardly be improved upon: "A friend of the present writer was the rector of an Episcopal congregation in a neighboring State, and one Sunday had been preaching to his people on the use of the word 'Catholic' 'Let not this word be usurped by an alien religious body. You are Catholics, every one. Glory in the name ; be ever ready to answer to it; claim it as your birthright on all occasions.' A few minutes later he was taking off his surplice in the vestry, on the ground-floor of his church. It was summer, and the windows stood open. Of a sudden a big Irishman, who had been regarding the building with a puzzled expression, put his head into the room. 'If you please, sir, is this the Catholic Church?' 'No, my good man; no,' innocently replied my kind-h...
THE TRUCE OF COD. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 23 March 1889
THE TRUCE OF COD. Almost everyone has heard of the admirable institution called the Truce of God, but its historymay not be so familiar. It was a law which forbade the carrying of arms from Wednesday evening till Monday morning throughout the year. Much bloodshed was prevented by it. It was sanctioned by the authority of Popes and of ecclesiastical councils, and enforced by all Christian princes. Anciently, no war was carried on during Lent; the Truce of God was an extension of this discipline during four days of each week of the year. Under the saintly king, Edward the Confessor, a law was passed (which was confirmed by his successor, William the Conqueror) that God's Truce should be observed continuously from Advent to Low Sunday, and from the Ascension till Trinity Sunday.
