ON WEAK AND IMPERFECT CONVERSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 22 December 1888
ON WEAK AND IMPERFECT CONVERSIONS. People who have lived far from God are apt to think themselves very near Him as soon as they make some steps towards Him Thus, polished and enlightened men make the same mistake as the peasant does, who thinks he has been at court because he has seen the king. They quit their most heinous vices, and adopt a rather less criminal life; but still effeminate, worldly, and vain, they judge of themselves, not by the Gospel, which is the only rule they ought to follow, but by a comparison between their present life and the one they formerly led. This is enough, they think, to canonize them, and they remain in a profound tranquillity as to what is yet to be done for their salvation. Such a state is perhaps more to be apprehended than one of open sin, for this might awaken conscience, and faith might revive, and they might make a great effort; while the other state only serves to stifle salutary remorse and establish a false peace in the heart that renders ...
Correspondence Column. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 22 December 1888
Correspondence Column. Questions on the history, ceremonies, sacraments and doctrines of the Church will be answered in this column. Anonymous communications will not be noticed. Names will not be published. A correspondent asks the meaning of the letters I. N. R. I. This query was probably suggested by the explanation which we gave of the letters I. H. S. The letters I. X. R. I. stand for '• Jesus Xazarenus Rex Jutkuorum. The earliest Latin alphabet did not have the letter J ; hence, in I. X. R. 1., the letters I are equivalent to our J. The meaning of these initials is, "Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews." St. John tells us that Pilate ordered a superscription to be placed over our Lord's head when He was crucified. "And Pilate wrote a title also ; and he put it upon the cross. And the writing was, 'Jesus of Xazareth, King of the Jews.'"—St. John, xix., 19. St. Luke says it was in three languages, Hebrew, Greek and Latin. —Luke, xxiii., 38. When, through the efforts of the Empre...

The Advanced Class. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 22 December 1888
The Advanced Class. The Advanced Class, composed of about 400 pupils from 14 to 18 years of age, provides religious instruction for many children, who, after Confirmation, would consider their religious knowledge complete if an additional 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 yearly 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.

Even some of the officers of the Cadets are not attending the Advanced Class regularly. Are they aware that thev were chosen, on the recommendation of the Director of the Class, as being faithful in their attendance ? If thev desire to hold their present positions, they must come back to their old places in class and set an example of obedience and submission. Xo one will be a good officer among soldiers who cannot himself obey his superiors. Some parents are not aware that children should go to confession as soon as thev are capable of committing mortal sin. Xow, as a rule, children at the age of seven have Mich a knowledge of God and His commandments that it is possible for them to offend God seriously. In any case it will do no harm to allow the child to go to confession, while there is much danger in postponing it from year to year. Thousands of sins are prevented when children confess regularly from their earliest years. * . »■ According to the report of the Recording Secretary...
PROTESTANT TESTIMONY. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 22 December 1888
PROTESTANT TESTIMONY. "After the most careful examination of the influences of Catholicism for good and evil, I am persuaded that the worship of the Madonna has been one of its noblest and most vital graces, and has never been otherwise than productive of true holiness of life and purity of character. There has probably not been ail innocent cottage home throughout the length and breadth of Europe during the whole period of vital Christianity in which the imagined presence of the Madonna has not given sanctity to the humblest duties, and comfort to the sorest trials, of the lives of women ; and every brightest and loftiest achievement of the arts and strength of manhood has been the fulfilment of the assured prophecy of the Israelite Maiden : 'He that is mighty hath magnified me, and holy is His name.'"— "Modem Tainters" Ruskin.
The Gospel. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 22 December 1888
The Gospel. ST. LUKE, Hi., I 6. The Church, in the Gospel of this Sunday, takes up the word of John the Baptist, " Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make His paths straight," and exhorts us to model our preparation on that of the Jews of the Saviour's time—meditation on the greatness of Ilim who comes, sorrow for sins which might prevent Ilim from coming into our hearts. During the past week the desires of the Church have been expressed in burning words, becoming each day more ardent. It is no ordinary event which inspires these incessant appeals. It is Christ, the Son of God, who is to be welcomed. He has been expected for four thousand years — each generation living in the hope of His coming, each generation preparing by prayer and penance —yet the years passed by, until the time announced by the prophets was at hand. The Saviour should not come until the Jews had lost control of their own land and government, until a stranger should rule over God's chosen people. " The sceptre shal...
