ADVICE TO BOYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 2 March 1889
ADVICE TO BOYS. Let boys assist in the housekeeping, says an exchange. How often do we see a poor tired mother exhausting her strength and vitality in efforts to accomplish her daily task about the house, while at the same time a big, strong youngster is lolling in an easy chair or lying upon the sofa. Why should he not lend a helping hand to his overworked mother? and why should he not be encouraged and induced to lighten the mother's burden, say by going an errand, performing numberless little actions required during the day, taking labor off her hands that he is perfectly able to dispose of, anticipating wants that would be suggested by a loving and affectionate heart ? Had the mother, in his earlier days, taught her boy to lend his aid in trifling household m atters, when he grew apace in years his reason and duty and love would naturally suggest to him in what manner and on what occasions his services would be welcome and opportune ; nor would he consider that such actions detr...
The Gospel. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 2 March 1889
The Gospel. St. Luke xviii. 31-43. The choice, for the Gospel of Quinquagesima Sunday, of the prophecy concerning the Saviour's future Passion, is evidently a very happy one. We are about to begin the penitential season of Lent, during which, by fast, prayer and redoubled Christian energy, we are going to make amends for any lukewarmness or sinfulness of which we may have been guilty during the year. Our thoughts are going to be centred on the allimportant affair—the salvation of our immortal souls—and what motive can be more potent to bring about suitable action on our part than meditation on the Passion of Christ. In fact there exists a necessity of meditating on the Redeemer's sufferings, not only during Lent, when the Church repeatedly calls them to our minds, but at other seasons of the year. The Fathers of the Church tell us that meditation on the Passion and death of our Lord is the most efficacious means of drawing the soul from sin, of causing man to do penance, and of stim...

BOYS, LOOK UPWARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 2 March 1889
BOYS, LOOK UPWARD. \\ c wisli to see more of our Catholic young men get into the spheres of useful life. There has always been a kind of timidity about our young men, and a kind of modest humility, or rather humbleness, about their parents that have kept them in prosaic drudgery and made them the "hewers of wood and drawers of water " for those more •• cheeky" and less deserving. Nearly all our Catholic young men have tact, and many of them have natural ability, so the only element in which they are deficient is ambition. Let more of them look to the law. to journalism, to medicine, and to the many special spheres connected with the rapidly-increasing commerce of our great country. We want more learned laymen in this country. If you will, we want more prominent Catholics. Not prominent because of their success in politics, but men of genuine respectability. The "political Catholic" has never been a credit to the Church, but has usually been an injury. He is seldom intelligent, is of...
ALCHOHOL BURNS THE STOMACH AND BRAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 2 March 1889
ALCHOHOL BURNS THE STOMACH AND BRAIN. A patient said once to a physician :—" Doctor, I must have some kind of stimulant. I am cold and alcohol warms me." " Precisely," answered the doctor. "See here. This stick is cold" (taking up a stick of wood from the wood-box and tossing it into the fire). "Now it is warm. But is the stick benefited ?" The sick man watched the wood first send out little puffs of smoke and then burst into a flame, and then replied :—"Of course not. It is burning itself." "And so are you when you warm yourself with alcohol. You are literally burning up the delicate tissues of your stomach and brain. He who takes alcohol to warm himself is like the man who sets his house on fire and warms his fingers by it as it burns." Some think there is nourishment in alcohol, but there is just as much nourishment in it as there is in the lash of a whip with which a horse is urged to its highest speed.
HOLY ASHES. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 2 March 1889
HOLY ASHES. The present rite of the Church of signing the foreheads of her children with blessed ashes, in the beginning of the Lenten fast, is a remnant of the ancient penitential discipline. In the good old times, when the faithful were more fervent, when they understood better the malice of sin, and had a deeper horror of it, public penance for certain crimes was ordained by the Church, and, for the most part, willingly accepted and faithfully performed. The sorrowing sinner looked upon admission to the penitential course as a precious boon, as a hope held out for his reinstatement in the enjoyment of those spiritual goods which he had forfeited by his transgression. The course of penance for those who were to be reconciled on Holy Thursday began on Ash Wednesday. The penitents, having confessed their sins, came to the Church on that day with bare feet and in the habits of mourning, and humbly begged from the bishop canonical punishment. The Pontiff"clothed them in sackcloth, sca...
AN AUDIENCE WITH THE POPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 2 March 1889
AN AUDIENCE WITH THE POPE. The following extradl from a letter written by Mrs. Chauncy Simmons of Boston in the holy city of Rome on January 6th, 1887, will, doubtless, interest the readers of The Sacred Heart Review, as it vividly describes an interview with our Holy Father, Leo XIII., and personally bears testimony to the high esteem in wdiich he holds our beloved Archbishop Williams : "You will be charmed, I know, to hear that my husband and I assisted at hoi}- Mass this feast of the Epiphany, in the Pope's private chapel, received Holy Communion from his own dear hands and afterwards had a little, but most memorable, audience. About thirty persons were admitted. We were conducted to the chapel by ushers or attendants attired in crimson satin or plush, who presented our card of invitation to some gentleman in a dress suit, who in turn showed us to our chairs. There we waited until his Holiness appeared at the foot of the altar and turned towards us and blessed us with holy water ...
