GREAT BASILICA MAY COMMEMORATE PEACE IN IRELAND (sY N. c. w. c. Nws sRc Dublin, June 27.The project that the Irish race at home and abroad should build a Basilica in gratitude to the Sacred Heart, if*a favorable an- swer to the prayers for Ireland, in her present distress, be granted, ha been cordially received. The writer who originally made the suggestion pointed out that Ireland, the most Catholic nation in the world, is at the present time passing through a Gethemane of tribulation, unequal- led in the course of her tragic his-[ tory. One of the Catholic journals[ strongly commends the proposal. It I recalls that at Montmartre, in Paris, ] there stands, as an everlasting me-[ morial of the gratitude of France for I being saved from destruc*on in 1870.' a great Basilica in hono,- ,,z the Sa- cred Heart. So, too, it submits, a sim- ilar Basilica in Ireland would be a standing memorial for all time of the gratitude of Ireland for the attain- ment of the long-cherished wishes and hopes of the Irish nation. Such a Basilica is also needed in or- der to enable Irish Catholics to carry out the design of holding a great Eu- charist!c Congress in Ireland. Public opinion has been greatly imItressed by the suggestion. Hopes are entertained that the project may soon become pos- sible of realization. The more the peo- ple have been subjected to suffering and privation the more fervently have they prayed. than ten cents per month.

On his wedding night by special inspiration he was moved to leave Rome and go to Edessa, where he gave away all his possessions and lived on alms. When he had lived in this manner for seventeen years he again sought obscurity by flight and on a voyage to Tarsus his ship was driven by contrary winds and he was forced to land at Rome. For another seven- teen years he lived as a mendicant in his father's house where no one recognized in the poor and tattered beggar the heir to one of the great fortunes of Rome. Only after his death did his identity become known through a writing in his own hand. He died early in the fifth century. Monday, July 18.--St. Camillus of Lellis in his early years manifested no marks of saintliness. After several years spent in campaigns against the Turks, he found himself in straightened circumstances and forced to work as a laborer in the construction of a Capuchin convent. The light of Truth flooded his soul and he decided to become a Capuchin friar, but an obstinate wound prevented him from continuing his novitiate. Later, with the approval of the Pope, he founded the community of the Servants of Sick and devo(ed his life to the care of these afflicted ones. He died in the year 1614. tuesday, July 19.St. Vincent de Paul was born A. D. 1576. After a youth passed in humble surroundings he entered the religious state and soon after his ordination he was captured by corsairs and carried into Bar- bary. He converted his renegade master and escaped with him to France where the saint was made chaplain-general of the galleys of France. He devoted his life to the care of the poor and the instruct'ion of the rich in works of charity. The Society of St. Vincent, the Priests of the Mission, and the Sisters of Charity still comfort the afflicted with the charity of St. Vincent of Paul. Wednesday, July 20.--St. MargareL virgin and nmrtyr, according to the an- cient martyrologies, suffered at Antioch in Pisidia in the last general persecution. She is said to have been instructed in the Faith by a Chris- tian nurse, to have been persecuted by her own father, a pagan priest, and, after many torments, to have gloriously finished her martyrdom by tim sword. From the East her veneration was propagated in England, France and Germany in the eleventh century. Her body is now kept at Monte-Fiascone in Tuscany. Thursday, July 21.--St. Victor, martyr, was an officer in the army of the Em- peror Maximian. Because of his exhortations to the Christians at Mar- seilles to renmin faithful to their God after the slaughter of the Thebaen legion, he was put to death after fearful tortures had been inflicted upon him. Friday, July 22.--St. Mary Magdalen in her early life was known as "a wonmn who was a sinner." From the depths of her degradation she raised her eyes to Jesus with sorrow, hope and love, and was forgiven. She stood with Our Lady and St. John at the foot of th6 Cross, the representative of the many who have had much forgiven. When the faithful were scat- tered by persecution, she found refuge in a cave in Provence where she lived for thirty years. Saturday, July 23.--St. Almllinaris, bishop and nmrtyr, was the first bishop of Ravenna; he sat twenty years and was crowned with martyrdom in the reign of Vespasion. He was a disciple of St. Peter, and made by him Bishop of Ravenna. Pope Honorius built a church under the name of Apollinaris in Rome about tim year 630. The high veneration which the ChurcI paid early t 9 his memory is a testimony of his eminent sanctity and apostolic spirit. OBITUA R Y ASA C.
