THE ANNUNCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 6 April 1889
THE ANNUNCIATION. WRITTEN FOR THE REVIEW. 'Twas evening and the golden sun Was travelling slowly toward the west; While Nature, weary with her toil, Was fain to take her quiet rest. But as the western sky grew dark And lost its tinge, so bright and fair, Each pious and devoted heart Was breathing forth a vesper prayer. And one, a virgin pure and sweet, Was murmuring words of praise and love, While o'er her head, so humbly bent, Beamed rays celestial from above. And long in silence had she prayed, When looking up, oh wondrous sight! She saw an angel standing there, Arrayed in robes of purest white. Oh, what must heavenly beauty be Whose slightest gleam blinds mortal eyes; The lowly virgin turns away, And fear succeeds her first surprise. " Hail! full of grace," the angel said, ** ' Mong women, sweetest, purest, best, With God great favor hast thou found His Son within thy womb shall rest." And Mary answered: "Be it so; In me be done God's holy will; For great things hath He wrought i...

WHY THE NEW SCHOOL LAW? [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 6 April 1889
WHY THE NEW SCHOOL LAW? By the proposed change in our school laws, now pending before the legislature, it is intended to bring private schools under "the supervision, inspection and approval of the School Committee of each city and town." We ask, why? Are the school committees of the State so conspicuous by their training, knowledge and experience that private schools will gain by the change, and be improved by being placed under the inspection and control of these men? A cool and dispassionate examination of the work already performed by the school committees of the State will help us to answer these questions. The annual reports of the State Board of Education will furnish ample material to prosecute this investigation. Take up any of these reports, and we venture to say you will find it full of criticism of these committees. The reports of the State Board find fault with these committees as being, very often, made up of men unsuited by nature, by education, by training, or by inc...
INSTRUCTING THE CHRONICLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 6 April 1889
INSTRUCTING THE CHRONICLE. In regard to the word " Romish" will The Review inform us why " Rom/.?// " is not quite as good as "English?"— Cambridge Chronicle. Ans. Because "Roman" is the proper adjective to be used, as shown by the fact that it is the word universally used, except when Protestant bigotry or ignorance desires to apply a belittling or insulting epithet to Roman Catholics. "We are not as yet quite ready to accept instruction, even from the 'Advanced Class of Christian Doctrine' who conduct The Review." " 'Twas ever thus"—those who need instruction most are the least willing to receive it.
Poetry. COD SAVE ALL HERE. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 6 April 1889
Poetry. COD SAVE ALL HERE. There is a prayer that's breathed alone In dear old Erin's land; 'Tis uttered on the threshold stone With smile and clasping hand; And oft, perchance, 'tis murmured low, With sigh and falling tear, The grandest greeting man may know — The prayer, "God save all here!" In other lands they know not well How priceless is the lore That hedges with a sacred spell Old Ireland's cabin door; To those it is no empty sound Who think with many a tear Of long loved memories wreathing round The prayer, " God save all here!" Live on, O prayer, in Ireland still To bless each threshold true, The echoes of her homes to fill With sacred fervor too! And guarding by its holy spell The soul and conscience clear, Be graven on each heart as well The prayer, "God save all here!"
THE HOLY ANGELS ASSISTING AT MASS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 6 April 1889
THE HOLY ANGELS ASSISTING AT MASS. It has been a universal belief in the Church that holy angels assist at every Mass that is celebrated. And no wonder, nothing greater or more sacred is ever done in heaven. The oblation of Jesus Christ in the Mass sensibly stirs the whole heavenly court, for, while it gives grace and pardon to us, it is an infinite act of adoration and thanksgiving, sounding like a blessed voice of praise throughout creation. Listen to St. John Chrysostom expressing the belief of the Eastern Church in the presence of the angels : " During that time (of the holy sacrifice) angels stand by the priest, the whole order of heavenly powers fervently pray, the sanctuary is full of choirs of angels come to honor Him Who is offered up in sacrifice. All this may be most easilycredited, even from the very nature of the sacrifice which is celebrated. But I was once told by a certain person, who had it from an aged and wonderfully venerable man, to whom God was wont to reveal H...
ST. JAMES' PAROCHIAL SCHOOL, HAVERHILL, MASS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 6 April 1889
ST. JAMES' PAROCHIAL SCHOOL, HAVERHILL, MASS. W T e hear a great deal said these days regarding the character of the educational work done in our parochial schools ; and, regardless of all evidence, it is assumed that this work is inferior in quality and comprehensiveness to that of the public schools. That parents and others may be able to judge for themselves on this point, we publish the following compositions written by the children of the ninth grade of St. James' School, Haverhill. This is the only fair way to judge of the comparative value of the work done in the public and parochial school. If we will be allowed to judge, we must say that this work is of a very high grade of excellence, reflecting credit on all concerned ; and we may be pardoned if we extend sincere congratulations to the accomplished lady—one of our own parishioners —Sister Agnes, who is at the head of the school. HISTORICAL ENTERTAINMENT. There was an audience of 1500 in the chapel of St. James' Church, re...

THE FEASTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 6 April 1889
THE FEASTS. St. Mary of Egypt, when twelve years of age, left her parents' home, and for seventeen years led a dissolute life in the city of Alexandria, Egypt. Being in Jerusalem on the feast of the Exaltation of the Cross, she desired to enter the church where this precious relic was preserved, but, finding herself held back by some invisible force, she began to consider that her wicked life was the cause from which her inability to enter the church proceeded. She felt a desire to be converted, and implored the Blessed Virgin, in honor of her purity, to be her friend and guardian ; then, crossing the river Jordan, Mary the penitent entered the desert where she lived for forty-seven years, atoning by prayers and tears and penitential works for her past excesses. Towards the end of her life she was seen by the holy man Zosimus, who gave her holy Communion and who, returning the following year for the same purpose, found her corpse upon the river's bank, with an inscription which read...
THE INCARNATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 6 April 1889
THE INCARNATION. By the Incarnation I mean that the Son of God, through the operation of the Holy Ghost, became man, the Blessed Virgin Mary being His mother. Through her He assumed our human nature in order to make atonement for sin. He is, then, the God-man. He is true God, equal to His Father, and He is true man, for He has a body and soul like ours. We believe, then, that He is true God and true man. This is an article of our belief, of our faith. He is true God from eternity, and became man in time. He has two natures, the divine and human He has also two wills, a divine and human, the human being always subject to the divme will. For instance, in the sacred Scriptures He says : " Father, not My will, but Thine be done " —(Luke xxii. 42.) Although having two wills and two natures, there is but one divine Person ; for the two natures are united in the one person of the Son of God. His human nature came from Mary, who is called the Mother of God. As man, our Saviour had no father...
THE SILENT CITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 6 April 1889
THE SILENT CITY. In all ages and among all nations buryinggrounds were considered sacred places. From the very earliest Christian times they were consecrated and blessed. They became the centre of pious pilgrimages, for in them were deposited the bodies of the martyrs, and confessors of the faith. As soon as the Church arose from the Catacombs which served for the Christians in ages of persecution for burial places and places of worship, Mass being said on the tombs ofthe martyrs, magnificent temples of worship were erected, and, at the same time, ground was set apart and consecrated with prayers and solemn ceremonies for the burial of the Christian dead. Hence, the Church made laws regulating cemeteries and burials. It forbade Catholics to bury their dead with pagans or infidels, or with any one separated from the communion ofthe Church, and it prohibited the interment of all public sinners, of all separated from the body of the Church, as also all unbaptized persons, within these ...
THE BOOK OF KELLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 6 April 1889
THE BOOK OF KELLS. The Book of Kells was jealously guarded from its earliest years, and tradition affirms that it was kept in a case of gold and finally stolen from the monastery for the sake of its golden cover. Subsequently it came into the hands of Ussher, Archbishop of Armagh, and was by him presented to Trinity College, together with other valuable works, about 1657. The book is now kept in a glass case in the college library, and shown to visitors upon the production of an order from one of the fellows ; and those privileged to behold it will be struck, not only by the varied, yet even, harmonious tone of its coloring, but by the clear, firm writing of the manuscript, on many pages of which the ink appears as fresh as though it were only a writing of yesterday, making it difficult to realize that this precious volume is the work of hands which were laid to rest above a thousand years ago. • &gt;»
AVOID DEBT. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 6 April 1889
AVOID DEBT. Every man who would get on in the world should, as far as possible, avoid debt. From the very outset of his career he should sternly resolve to live within his income, however paltry it may be. The art of living easily as to money is very simple—pitch your scale of living one degree below your means. Many a man dates his downfall from the day when he began borrowing money. Avoid the first obligation, for, that incurred, others follow, one necessitating another : every day the victim gets more and more entangled; then follow pretexts, excuses, lies, till all sense of shame is lost, the whole life becomes a makeshift, and the debtor in despair finally resolves to live by indirect robbery and falsehood.
DETACHMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 6 April 1889
DETACHMENT. Christians are bound to love their relations, but it must be in God and for God, and when our duty to Him is in question we have no right to condescend to flesh and blood. Our Lord has taught us in the Gospel the perfect detachment he requires from His disciples. When He called, He expected them to follow. He forbade one of them to go and bury his father, another to bid his family farewell. Perfection is impossible without detachment.
