OUR LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 4 May 1889
OUR LIFE. Life is a wonderful gift from God, one for which we owe Him eternal praise and thanksgiving, yet the grace to use this rightly is a still higher and greater blessing even than life itsell. For we learn from our Divine Lord's words, that it would be better never to have been born, than to misuse this great boon, or to turn it to a wrong account. How, therefore, have we spent the time God has given us, and for what end have we lived? Childhood and youth are the most important periods of our lives ; they are the seed time, the appointed time for planting and pruning.
PATIENCE AND CONTENTMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 4 May 1889
PATIENCE AND CONTENTMENT. Patience and contentment, which, like the treasure laid in the field for which a man sold all he had to purchase, is of that price that it cannot be had at too great a purchase, since without it the best conditions in life cannot make us happy, and with it, it is impossible that we should be miserable even in the worst.— Sterne.

TRAINING CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 4 May 1889
TRAINING CHILDREN. While we are making beautiful ornaments for our rooms, and lovely pictures to hang on our walls, to delight the hearts and eyes of our children and friends, are we trying, also, to adorn the lives of our children by instilling into their hearts and minds right principles and motives for action? Let us remember that memory's hall is a spacious chamber, capable of containing many pictures, and that the scenes being enacted, daily and yearly, before our children's eyes, and in which they are taking part, are forming pictures ; and, unlike those on our walls, they are to remain there through life. If they are not pleasing they can not be exchanged or effaced ; so, don't you see how important it is that we are very careful in their formation?
The Gospel. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 4 May 1889
The Gospel. "I am the good shepherd."—John x. 11-16. By presenting Himself to us under the amiable quality of the shepherd, our Lord wishes to make known the greatness of His love for us. And what quality could He assume better calculated to touch our hearts and excite our confidence? Christ is our shepherd. If so, He must have fulfilled in our regard all the duties of the shepherd towards his flock. Let us, for a moment, examine what are the duties of the pastor towards his fold, that we may thus see clearly if our Lord has really been the good shepherd to us. The good shepherd knows his sheep ; he leads them to good and fertile pastures ; he watches vigilantly over them that they may not be exposed to the attack of the wolf and that they may not stray from the fold. And if perchance any have wandered away, he diligently seeks them and brings them back. Can anyone doubt for a moment that our Lord has fulfilled these duties towards us? From all eternity He knows us. In the first mom...
SUNDAY SCHOOL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 4 May 1889
SUNDAY SCHOOL NOTES. It must be gratifying to the Sunday School teachers to know that their labor in calling, monthly, at the homes of their scholars has been productive of so much good. An average increase of something over 93 in the attendance for each Sunday during the last three months is certainly a wonderful result. Just as the small sums of money from many persons will make in the aggregate a very large sum, so when every teacher performs his little Bi\?.:v of the work with promptness and regularity, tlie whole work of the Sunday School goes smoothly along. All we have to do now is to persevere. The monthly Mass for the Sunday school teachers will be celebrated to-morrow. The monthly meeting of the Sunday School Teachers' Union will be held at half past six, Sunday evening. All the children's monthly reports should be delivered before the meeting. —* ■ »

THE CHILD AND THE DRUNKARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 4 May 1889
THE CHILD AND THE DRUNKARD. The late John B. Gough, in one of his powerfull addresses, tells the following most touching story: "I once was playing with a beautiful boy in the city of Norwich, Connecticut. I was carrying him to and fro on my back, both of us enjoying ourselves exceedingly ; for I loved him, and I think he loved me. During our play I said to him, ' Harry, will you go down with me to the side of that green bank?' — 'Oh, yes !' was his cheerful reply. We went together, and saw a man lying listlessly there, quite drunk, his face upturned to the bright blue sky ; the sunbeams that warmed and cheered and illumined us lay upon his porous, greasy face ; the pure morning wind kissed his parched lips and passed awaypoisoned ; the very swine in the fields looked more noble than he, for they were fulfilling the purposes of their being. As I looked upon the poor degraded being, and then upon that child, with his bright brow, his beautiful blue eyes, his rosy cheeks, his pearly t...
BLASPHEMY. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 4 May 1889
BLASPHEMY. " Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain." The second commandment commands us to reverence the holy name of the Lord, and to speak with profound respect of God and ot holy things at all times. We manifest this reverence and respect by pronouncing and by invoking either the holy name of God or that of His only Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, with sentiments of piety and veneration. Such is the precept indirectly expressed in this commandment; its direct declaration being a prohibition. It prohibits all acts contrary to the respect which we owe to the holy name of God ; such are, chiefly, blasphemy, perjury, and the violation of vows. Blasphemy is speaking injuriously of God, discoursing or circulating writings against God. To constitute blasphemy, it is not necessary that our discourse be directly aimed at God ; it suffices if it be either against the Blessed Virgin or the saints, or holy things—for example, the Church of Jesus Christ, her sacraments, her min...

These envelopes will be opened by the judges after the three best essays have been selected, and the...
OBLIGATION OF ASSISTING AT MASS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 4 May 1889
OBLIGATION OF ASSISTING AT MASS. This act of supreme worship having been instituted by Christ Himself, is not left by the Church to the devotion or discretion of her members. By the first precept of the Church, they are bound under a strict obligation to be present and take part in it on Sunday and great feasts—first, in order that they may remember to fulfil the duty of adoring God, at least in this, the highest act of adoration, and one specially enjoined by our Lord ; and secondly, for their own sakes. For, since our hope of salvation cannot be based on our own innocence, or our own good works, or on our having done penance enough to satisfy God for our sins, but must depend on God's infinite mercy and on His forgiving us for the sake of Christ's love and sufferings for us, it is, above all things, important that we should frequently plead His merits and join in offering the sacrifice, of which the end and object is to obtain pardon for sinners.
