i < / PAGE SIX College, Academy and School VOWS PROFESSED VEILS RECEIVED SOLEMN RELIGIOUS CEREMONY AT MT. ST. MARY'S ACADEMY ON EASTER TUESDAY. Two Postulants Receive White Veil One Sister Makes First Vows Bishop Morris Preaches. A very beautiful and impressive ceremony took place at Mount Saint Mary's on Tuesday morning. Two postulants received the white veil and religious habits and one Sister made her first vows. The altar looked lovely, it was decorated with a rich profusion of white lilies, befitting the occasion. Not only the large altar, but the side- alta were ablaze with lights and they too, had an abundance of plants and flowers. The spacious chapel was crowded with the friends of the favored three, who were to consecrate their lives to the service of the Lord, in the beauti- ful Order of Mercy. Right Reverend Bishop Morris perfolned the cere- mony, he was assisted by Reverend H. Wernke and Reverend E. Garrity. Reverend J Carrol, of Hot Springs was also in the sonctuary. He came t'o specially .honor one of the candidates, whom he baptized years befog. At 7:45 the precession moved sldwly into the choir, to the solemn rrains of that loveliest of hymns, the "O Gloriosa." When those to be received and pro- fessed knelt at the foot of the altar the Right Reverend Bishop blessed the candles and presented them to the postulants. A beautiful discourse was then delivered by the Bishop. Bishop Morris Speaks Words of Congratulation and Encouragement His Lordship in fatherly tone ad- dressed the recipients in these words: "It is commonplace to tell you that the human lot is predestined by God for each individual of His creation. Some are born to one thing and some are born to another but all of us have one common aspiration and that is, to be happy not only hereafter, but here. We all start out with the purpose of being as happy as we can, and after a life of long experience I have come to the conclusion, that the life that Christ chose for Himself and for His immediate family, is the only true one to secure happiness., Worldly wealth and all that it brings does not give leace or happi- ness. On the contrary, an abundance of worldly goods has a tendency to cloy the human heart.. The happiest, man or woman is the one who finds his joy in the least possession. What our Lord said to Mary is as true to- .day is it was true then, "Sloe chose the better part," and you have chosen it by devoting yourselves to a life of contemplation and service of our blessed Lord. The dear Seraph of Assisi gives us the key to the wisdom of those who choose to serve Christ in religion. He says, "If I had all the delights of the world, all its honors, all its riches, all its power, I should still not be perfectly happy. True happiness Fra Leone, is possible only in seeking God, following His will and living a simple humble life in His love." Never was anything truer and no- where my dear Sisters a greater justi- fication of the art you .have chosen than in this exclama{ion of St. Francis "Seek God and seek Him only." If I should recommend anything to you, to make your life more perfect in the state you have chosen, I should say it was found'in the practice of small quiet virtues rather than in aspiring to the large and unusual ones.. I mean, you will find your success and your peace, in submitting to the little humiliations that come in. your association with one another. Your growth in holiness depend rather on the trivial matters that-you do well, than on the big things, that you try to do. The ladder to heaven is steep and high but the steps are Small and low. I congratulate you and do not hesitate to say, that even from a human Standpoint and for the sake of more earthly ]appiness, you have chosen the better part. Sisters.are and ought to be happier than those who dwell in the world, and. if you proceed along the lines I have suggested, then every day there will be, not only a growth in holiness but a growth in happiness. aThe Better Part." After the sermon, the candidates who had chosen the "better part" re- tired to exchange the postulant's dress, for the religious garb. As the "Quae est Ista" was being chanted by the choir, they re-appeared and came mce more to the foot Of the altar. The Bishop, after blessing the white veils, placed them on their heads, he then gave them the cincture, beads cud white cloak worn by the members of the Order. The Mass was then T begun by Right Reverend Bishop Morris, during which Sister Mary John Baptist pronounced her holy Vows, for which solemn act she had been preparing for more than two years. She then received the black veil, which entitles her to take her place among the professed religious. While the "Te Deum" was being sung, the happy three prostrated themselves and arose as the joyful tone of the "Ecce Quam Bonum" was chanted by the choir All Pupils of "The Mount" The young ladies who were receiv- ed and professed are pupils of Mount Saint Mary's The institution is just- ly proud' of them for they are highly educated and accomplished and well- fitted to do great things in the Order of Mercy. Right Reverend Monsignor Tobin and Reverend Father Costello, who is conducting a retreat for, the young ladies at Mount St. Mary's, were resent at the Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament given at the close of the ceremony. The names of the Sisters are Miss Margaret Hampel, of Bigelow, Ark., now known as Sister Mary de Lourd- res. Miss Frances Crimm, of Hot Sorings, who has taken the name of Sister Mary Angelica and Sister Mary John Baptist, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thos. Mattingly, of Little Rock. She is the third daughter given by these generous parent to the se2wice of God. biT. ST. MARY'S ACADEMY Death of Mother Mary Antonia Mother Mary Antonia Grunert, of Mr. St. Mary's, died on Palm Sunday at 7:30 p. m., after a lingering illness. [Her funeral obsequies took place on Tuesday morning of Holy Week at 9:00 o'clock, in the Convent Chapel. The Chaplain, Rear. E. Garrity sang the Solemn Requiem Mass; Rev. T. Keeney was deacon, Very Rev. Dr. Keller sub-deacon and Rev. H. Wern- ke master of ceremonies. The other clergymen present in the sanctuary, were Rev. Fr. Maurus, O. S. B. of St. Edward's, Rev. Fr. Steinhaur, S. V. D., of St. Bartholomew's, Rev. Fr. Placidus, O. S. B., of Altus, Very Rev. Dr.-Aretz and Rev. H. Haegney, of Little Rock College. The Con- vent choir sang the Requiem Mass, with the Veni Jesu for offertory. Sisters of Mercy came from Fort Smith, Hot Springs and Argenta to be present at the funeral ceremonies, of their much beloved and revered Sister in religion. The Sisters of Charity, from St. Vincent's InfirmmT were also, present. The faculty and students of Little Rock College came in a body and their preseuce was greatly appreciated. Every available space in the large Chapel was fillcd, by friends who came to pay their tribute of respect to the highly es- teemed deceased. Mother M. Antonia was a woman of faith and deep, earnest piety and edi- fied all by her strict religious ob- servance. Being possessed of fine mental attainments, she was a teach- er of unusual ability. Though her long illness prevented her from con- tinuing her work in the class-room, for which she was so well fitted, she was, nevertheless very useful. She was an earnest, close student, conse- quently, an authority on the religious! and educational topics of the day. A large number, of friends were enabled to follow the remains to Cal- vary cemetery, owing to the kind thoughtfulness of many who placed their machines at the disposal of those in charge of the funeral. The prayers were read by Rev. E. GaSify and the Benedictus was sung by Rev. H. Wernke, Rev. H. Hackney, Very Rev. Dr. Keller, Rev. T. Keeney and Roy. E. Garrity. The great esteem in which the de- ceased was held, was shown by the many beautiful loral offerings and moreover, by the many offerings for Massds for her eternal repose. The Seniors--Misses DuCharme Schultz, Zeisler, Finn, VanLear, Hur- ley, Beardsley, Mahoney, Eiehkoff Higginbotham Winn, Clarke, Bur- rows and Jones .had a large auto to themselves and took care of the floral offerings.  Mother M. Antonia was born, in Prussia, fifty-two years ago, and at an early age came with the other members of the family to this coun- try. She entered old Mr. St. Mary's as a student, and later, in 1884 be- came a religious. Her ability for governin was soon recognized, for she was superior for six years, after having held other important offices in the Community. She is survived by her brother, Mr. A. Grunert, two sisters, Mrs. J. Schnitzer and Hedwlge Grune of Fort Smith. They came to Little Rock to attend, the funeral services. The pall bearers were Messrs. E. McEvoy, E. Monahan, T. Donohue, A. Gracie, L. Brizzolara and J. Ginnoc- \\; hio. Mount Saint Mary's 'Academy open- ened school, on lVLonday, April 5, after the Easter holidays. TtIE GUARDIAN. SATURDAY, APRIL 10, 1920. "CONDITION OF THE WORKING MAN Leo XIII In His Famous Encyclical Now Wields An Influence Greater Than He Ever Thought. Behind the baptistry of the Church of St. John Lateran, there stands a statute of Leo XIII. At the base of the statute there is recorded that it is erected to the memory of the Work- ing Man's Pope. The statute does t not merit any particular attention as a work of art, and even the unique- ness of the inscription has not chal- lenged special attention. It does not figure in the guide books of Rome. Even to the visitors it did not bring a lesson of any special significance. It was probably set down to the en- thusiasm of some ecclesiastics who would give credit to their Church for what the head of it had once done. After the lapse of a quarter of a cen- tury, the Pope, the statute, and the insc#iption may come to mean vastly more than they did twenty-five years ago. Everyone will admit that the history of the diplomacy of the Nine- teenth. Century cannot be written I without mention of the name of Leo XIII. And everyone is more than prone to admit in the Twentieth Cen- tury that diplomacy, after all, was a very shallow andpassing thing. We know now that it required something more than outstanding diplomacy to gain a place in histmT and infinitely more a place in the hearts of men. But the Pope who ruled in the last quarter of the XIX century wrote an Encylical on the "Condition of the Working Man." It was not discover- ed in his day, and it was not discover- ed for many a day after. Its radical utterances were smothered by a neg- lect. Now in a newer, and, we' trust, a better world, this letter has come into its own, and it is about to wield and influence even greater than the writer even thought. It is be- coming the basis for a new industrial battle that promises well for the lib- eration of the working man. To babies and infants wisdom is often re- vealed. The simple working men who left a token of their apprecia- tion of their champion were merely twenty-five years ahead of their time.--The New World. WORSHIP ABOVE REASON.
