SEPTUAGESIMA, SEXAGESIMA, ETC. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 16 February 1889
SEPTUAGESIMA, SEXAGESIMA, ETC. To the editor of The Sacred Heart Review: What is meant by Septuagesima, Sexagesima and Quinquagesima Sunday? I have learned at school that septuagesima, means "seventieth," sexagesima, " sixtieth" and quinquagesima, "fiftieth " ; but why arc the three Sundays before Eent called by these names? J. F. B. The question of our correspondent is timely and may be answered as follows : Everywhere, and at all times, the Eent consisted of forty days, in honor of our Saviour's fast of forty days in the desert; but these forty days had different times for commencing, and were made up in different ways, according to local custom, at various epochs of the Church's history. In some places the forty clays' fast commenced seventy days, or thereabouts, before Easter, and on that account the first Sunday of that period was called Septuagesima Sunday, the word "Septuagesima" signifying the seventieth. But then, there were three days taken from each week, namely, Sunday, ...
KINDNESS, FORGIVENESS AND LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 16 February 1889
KINDNESS, FORGIVENESS AND LOVE. Thy brother is in the ditch. Do not pass him by. Give him thy hand and raise him up. Temptation was too powerful for him—he yielded, and has fallen. Pity him ; say not a reproachful word ; use kind words, and thou wilt again restore him to virtue. Scores of the tempted and fallen have thus been saved. The path to heaven is thronged with holy spirits, who were in the mire and dirt. Kindness and love were the means of saving them.

Among the prized relics which arc shown in the National Museum at Mexico, is the banner under which Cortez conquered the Empire of the Montezumas. It is of red damask, with a beautiful picture of the Blessed Virgin painted upon it. Her hands are united, as if to implore her Son to aid in overthrowing the idolatrous dynasty. On the reverse arc the arms of Castile and Leon. The banner is about three feet square, and was pre- served in the University in a frame under glass to prevent decay. A few years ago it was removed to the National Museum for better preservation. Its authenticity is sustained by a series of accounts, beginning with that of Bernal Diaz, who describes how it was borne in procession when Cortez returned thanks to God at Cuyoacan for the capture of the city of Mexico in i^ic).
Church Notices. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 16 February 1889
Church Notices. Announcements for Septuagesima Sunday : Monthly Mass for the Men's Sodality, Tuesday. The Altar Society meets after vespers. Special meeting of the Temperance Society after vespers today. The final reports of the canvassers will be made to-day, and it will then be seen, we are assured, that the membership will run above the required 400. The people of the parish are to be congratulated on the large number of our young men who come forward to join the society. It is a healthy sign, full of bright promise. With our young men pledged to total abstinence we feel justified in making any expense to encourage and support them in such a wise and manly course. May we not, even with reason, expect the support, moral and financial, of every one in the community, Protestant and Catholic? Surely all those who have at heart the cause of total abstinence, who so cheerfully sacrifice time and money to advance its interests, cannot be indifferent to a work of this magnitude. Here it ...

The Gospel. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 16 February 1889
The Gospel. ST. MATTHEW, XX. I-16. In the Gospel of Septuagesima Sunday we are given the parable of the master of the family who went out early in the morning and at different hours during the day to hire laborers to work in his vineyard, making an agreement with them all for "a penny" a day. At the end of the day some who had been working since early morning murmured because the master gave equal wages to those who had done but a few hours' work ; whereupon the master reproved them, saying: " Friend, I do thee no wrong ; didst thou not agree with me for a penny ? " St. John Chrysostom says that this parable is meant for two classes of individuals : those who have served God from their earliest years and those who only begin to serve Him when old age or sickness warns them of approaching death. From this parable of the master of the vineyard the former class must learn to be humble, because the leward of their good life—eternal happiness —is the same that is given to those who begin...
Untitled [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 16 February 1889
There is an opportunity in our big cities for children to get hold of bad books and papers, if they are not watched carefully ; and that many parents do not watch their children and see what they read, is proved by the immense sale of such books and papers. The best way for parents to guard their children against this evil is for them to supply their children with good reading matter, and to teach them to have an abhorrence for anything vile or unholy.

THE SACRED HEART CADETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 16 February 1889
THE SACRED HEART CADETS. [The following history of the Cadets, written by Edward Graham, a pupil of the Advanced Class, is a sample of the kind of work we desire to receive from the members of the Class. It is original, timely and instructive. Our motive in publishing it is to give our young people a taste for literary labor, and to show them that, perhaps, if they tried, they might produce something creditable to themselves and interesting to others. Our columns are at their disposal.] Although the Cadets are not a very old organization, they have quite a history. In the latter part of July, ISBB, our reverend pastor, thinking of forming a Cadet battalion, called for four or five hundred recruits, from 12 to 18 years of age, to enlist in the cause of temperance. About 400 responded. Then a colonel and four staff officers were appointed, and a captain and two lieutenants to each of the companies. Councilman Counihan was called upon to drill the boys, and in a very short time he put ...
