Lamp[ Lighted By CONCHESSA i I My Dear Boy nd GMs: On August 30, the church celebrate the feast of Amric's own saint, Rose of IAma, whom it is said was marked from infancy with miraculou,, gifts and favors 'Tis said the flowers recognize(1 her as their queen, and to honor her, blossonlM out of season; that thd trees bent their brancbes to her; that the insects formed choirs while the birds vied with her in singing the praises of their common Ma,ter; that on day when Rose was very ill the infant Jesus appeared and played with her. This good saint died in 1617, when only 31 years of age. When saying your prayers tonight do not forget to add I conic to thee, O sweet Saint Rose, To claim thy care and love, To beg thy guidance thro' this life, To endless bliss above. As ever. your CONCHESSA. BIBLE HISTORY The Ten] Conlmandments Three months after leaving EgYt)L the Im'aelitcs came to Mount Sinai home and riches on earth that I may have a home in heaven. I fear not to lose my life, since it will procure me a better one. 1 am ready to dis, for Jesus Christ." The judges, to frighten him, lea him t)efore a great fire, and threaten- 1 cd to throw him into it. A .oldie I banished his sword over the child's] head, but the little hero was not[ [daunted. t He was led before the judge, to I whom he spoke these beautiful words: "Oh, you are very cruel to lead me so near the crown and not give it to me Do not keep me from going to the Savior whom I love." Without more deny, and with the consent of the cruel father, the judge ordered his head to be cut off, which suffering the young mlartyr under- went with joy. So Cyril, having been expelled from his earthly hence, is now enjoymg the happiness of a heavenly home. and will enjoy it for endless aes. Tlms God rewards him for his fidelity to his faith ;rod perseverance in virtue. "MO'IHEI{. I I,OVE YOU"' Here God called Moses up to the A pleasnnt-facvd wom'm l)oardcd a mountain anti bid him tell the peoplc trolly car with her two small sons that, ir they remained faithful to the Lord, He would continue to protect them and wouhl make thenl a chosen people. God also commanded the peo.. ple to prepare themselves for two whole (lays, so as to be ready on the third day. On the ramming of the third day it began to thunder and lighten; a }hick cloud covered the mountain, and the top of Mount Sinai seemed to be on fii,e. Then'came the sound of a trumpet that grew louder and louder until the people trembled with fear. When Moses had led the people to the foot of the mountain God spoke thus : I. I am the Lord thy God. Thou shall not have strange Gods before Me. II Thou shall not take the nares of the Lord thy God in vain IlI. Remember thou keep the Holy Sabbath clay. \\; IV. torror thy father and thy mother. V. Thou shall not kill. VI Thou shall not commit adultry. VII. Thou shalt not steal. VIII. Thou shall not bear false witness against thy neighbor. IX. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife. X. Thou shall not covet thy neigh- bor's goods. The Israelites, who were trembling with fear, promised to do all tha God commanded. Afterward Moses went up to the nountain again, and stayed there forty days and forty nights, conversing with God, who gave him two stone tablets upon which were written the ten commandnlents. The Golden Calf While Moses was living on the during the busy noon hour of the holiday season. The smaller boy sat with his me(hey upon one side of the car, while the ohter, who was about four years old, took a seat opposite. It inVeresto llim to look out of the window, but frequently he glanccd across at his mother. At length he called softly: ":Mother!" No answer. r 'q Again he spoke: "Mother!" lhL time it was said a bit louder and the mother looked over and smiled. The boy's eyes lighted and lie whispercdi ":Mother, I love you." The mother turned a glorified face upon her small son and men and women in the ear looked tenderly from one to another. The trolly ear bad suddenly become t place of Messing because a little boy had voiced this ever heautiful senti- sent: "Mother. I love you!" .ESSIE'S SOCIOLOGICAL EX- PERIMENT "Where are you going, Evelyn?" "To the Holy Hour. Don't you wang you want to colne along?" No, I cant. I haxe to go on an errand for mother." "Where to? Can't we go on the way back?" "Oh, no, I have to take this jelly to old Mrs. Hennessy and sit and read to her for awhile." It was 7.o'clock on a soft Septem- ber evening\\;and the two young girls had met within two squares of St. Monicas. Both attended St. Moni- ca's high school, having just entered on their junior year. Evelyn Morris was a gentle devout gM with a sweet amiable nature, nluch beloved by he] companions, while Jessie Ward was one of those lovely irrepressibles who mountain the people began to coin- are the bane, and sometime, the de- plain, and, g6ing to Aaron, asked him light of their harrassed teachers.

Thinking to quiet them, she was yet loving, good hearted and he told them to bring him the golden affectionate, and while not as popu- ear-rings of their wives and daugh- lar as the more gentle Evelyn, 'he tars. To his great surprise they did; so, being afraid to put them off any longer, Aaron made a golden calf of the ear-rings and gave it to the peo- ple to worship. When :Moses came down from the mountain and found the people ador- ing this idol--dancing about it and eating and drinking like pagans--he was so angry that he threw down the stone tables which the Command- ments were written on, and they were broken in their fall. Taking the gold- en calf tie cast it into the fire, and ordered all who continued in idolatry to be put to death. :Moses then re turned once more to the mountain and begged God to pardon his people. The Lord heard this prayer, and :Mo- ses having made two stone tables llke the first God wrote the ten command- ments on them. When :Moses came down from the mountain this time his face shown so brightly that he wag obliged to wear a veil, for the people dared not look at him. THE CHILD-MARTYR St. Cyrial was only nine years old when he sufferedleath for the faith of Christ.

Just now she was passing through one of these periods; and Evelyn, who loved her, noted how little the usual de- votions attracted her. This evening was to be a"silent" Holy Hour, aa tomorrow was the first Friday when all the girls of the Junior class wre to receive Holy Communion for a de- ceased classmate. Wasn't Jessie go- ing to ConfesAon, then, Evelyn in- quired. "Not tonight," Jessie responded air- ily. "I've joined Mildred Evans* Young Helpers' Club and reading to Mrs. Hennessy is my assignment. Mother gave me the jelly for her," she added. "A you sure MJs. ttennessy wants you to read to her?" asked Evelyn. "I've heard mother say she hates to have anyone ofer to do anything like that for her." "Of course, she will be delighted. It all depends on the way you go about things," in a lofty tone. "The Young Helpers follow a special seab- ed, you know along 'sociological lines," added superiority followed th use of the big word. "Phi" said Evelyn, "I didn't know' there was any better method of bein kind than my nlotherand yours- had." Jessie blushed ad looked uncom- fortable. "It's not the same thing at all," rather crossly. "Of course, your mother is kind to Mrs. Hennes- soy. So is my mother and lots of the parish folks; ut she doesn't think much of it because they're her owt kind of people. Now, when we go to see her--the Young Helpers I mean-- we know just how to approach her and she will appreciate the difference," she ended up vaguely. 'Tm sorry it will keep you away from Confession," said Evelyn gent- y, seeing the futility of further dis- cussion. "Sister will be di.appointed if all the girls are not there." "Oh," lmrriedly--"it's one of th rules of the IIelpers never to break an assignment. Good-bye. I'll see you in the morning." And the two girls seRarated. "Poor Jessie," thought Evelyn aa she llul'rit}d on to church. "Just an- other one of her passing fads, I sup- pose. I must pi'ay for her real hard tonight. She has such a good heart, but she is always flying fronl one thing to another." A sudden thought made her chuclde inwardly. "Wait until she strikes Mrs. Hennessey and see where her sociology is." Jessie knocked softly at Mrs. Hen- nessey's side door. Within the nlem- ory of a man the front door had never b.cen opened, and no one who kne the occupant ever made so bold as to desecrate its panels with a knock. There was no answer to Jessie's "rat: tat-tat." anti she knocked again. This time a harsh voice bade her enter, and as she opened the door Jessie unex- pectedly found her sociology courage a'one down into her knees. "How do you tie, Mrs ttmnessey?' she said sweetly. The ohl lqdy bent upon her a fore.. boding glance. "Who is it?" she ask- ed inhospitably When displeased about anything she always affected not to recogniz'$ her visitors. Jessie had what she considered a real inspitatiou. Mrs. 'Hennessey hadn't seen her for the' years, maybe, and it was possible that she didn't recognize her. "Imn from the Young Helpers' Club, Mrs. tten nessey," she said in her best raanner. "I thought perhaps you would like to have me read to you for a while. You know." graciously, "that is our work. We go" "Work, is it," snorted Mrs. Hen- nessey. 'I' say young helpers to youl Young meddlers, that's what you are} Who told you I wanted anyone to read to me? I could ]'cad, me young lassie, before you were born!" anti Mrs. Itennessey glanced at the hap, less girl, who tried in vain go mar, shall hvr thoughts to give a suitable unswer. "I thou dt--we -- - thou,ht " s- g g ,lm murnmred hopelessly. "You thought! You thought!" was I the oht lady's scornful interjection. /"The Lord save us!" she went on. 'Tlle, way people do go around now la (lays bothering the life out of decent people. It's a caution, that's what i is." And she regarded the shriveled girl with nlanevolent eye. "Only a while ago," she went on, still angrily, as Jessie was still dumb, "some scrawny bit of a girl crone knocking at my front door, with a glass of jelly from these same helpers--if it's helpers you call them. A glass of jelly and me with a cupboard full of the finest jelly and preserves in the tow." Her eagle eye, fastened on the witil them, though I thought I knew you when you came in today." She bent a quizzical glance on the now miserable girl. "Six of them cam(, last Saturday night and pieced me a quilt. Why didn't you conic?" with unhappy directness. "I didn't know anything about it," faltered Jessie, Too well she knew why: She had not been to a meeting of (lie Chihh'en of Mary for a long time--she had been so taken up '.ith the Young Helpers. She had beard tlm girls talking about the good time they lind last Saturday, bt had heen so engrossed with other things sh had not paid much attention. "You didn't know it?" asked Mrs. bat]. They're a beautiful lot of young" gMs, and they got their reward righ away for being good to an old woman. Mrs. Morris sent in a f'ine dinner fo thenl, anti Mrs. Murphy sent them all down to the hotel for supper. They all said they had a lovely time, and I hclieve they did. Gd bless them: I'm sorry," she added, seeing Jessie's downca look. "that you didn't come in for the good tinlcs too." Jessie straightened up. "I will abe next time, Mrs. Itennessey. I love the Chihh'en of Mary, and I'ln going 'to help in all their good work after this." "That's right, my dear," with pleased nod. "Keep to your own kind. There's plenty of good" work for ev- ery one." An Jessie rose to go she tool( hm courage in her hands and laid the glass of jelly on the table. "Mamma sent this." she said tim, i(lly. "May I leave it?" Mrs. Hennessey unbent enough to chuckle dryly. "Of course you may," she smiled, "'Twas the scrawny one and her jelly that 1 sent packing." Once ouLside, Jessie flew on wing- cd feet towards St. Monica's, hoping to be in time for benediction. She met Evelsm's pleased glance with one equally as pleased, as they stood in line afterward for Confession, and somehow felt unusually happy as she approached the railing with her class- mates he next mornmg. "When is the next mev, ting of the ckildren of :Mary, Evelyn?" Jessie asked casually the next day. --In "Eternal Light."

COMMUNICATIONS (Continued From Pae 51 the words which are spoken ad the books which are distributed at the various meetings. The results are in the hands of God. The Home Mis: zion have always been a pressing con- sideration of the Church and no that the field is white to the harvest. it is the devout wish and prayer of both Mrs. Martila :Moore Avery th president of tLe Guild and Mr. David Goldstein its secretary, that this new movement which they have inaugu rated and which is meeting with such success, will soon be extended to na- tion-wide proportions "rod that in God's own time there will be an auto- van in ev'ry state in our beloved Union, having for its mission "To :Make the Catholic Church Bette Known and Loved." The writer himself, tIaving heard and read so much about the work, came to Boston from Baltimore, especially to study at first hand. the policy nd practical working of the Guild. As chairman of the various meetings held this season the writez has been able to 'see and thus under- stand the reason why the work has met with such :success. It is indeed a wonderful ight'to watch the deep, almost breathless interest of the hun- drcds, who night after nigl)t gather about the car, standing for over two hours listening to Catholic doctrin and Catholic practices explained. The work is certainly a noble one and the writer has found the officers of the Guild mo.t hospitahlc in aiding and encouraging others to take up the work. All praise m due His Eminence Cardinal O'Connell, whose farsight- edness, and loyal uport of the move- mcnt has made possible the Guild's success. And if the slogan, "Ameri- ca Catholic" is ever to be realized it will be largely due to the pa-riotic efforts and self-sacrifice of the pat- ron and founders of the Catholi- Truth Guild. GEORGE R.

She shuddered to think what a reception the "scrawny one" must ha\\;e received. Mrs. Hennessey always regained her good humor when she had re- duced her antagonist to silence and subjection.
