"\\;t the late mass hc l)reachcd in adtlition a serm(m based on the p;Osl)el of the day. Front the ready response of the rttler.of Cal)h:trn;tnm. whose son. our I/lessed Lord had healed, he drew the need for super- natnral faith, and, in l)art, said as f(tl- lows: "It has been well said that the great diflicnlty for Christians of this centnry will I)e not so nutch keel)- ing the conlnlau(hllents its lccl)ing the faith at all." The world is so full of dist,'actions that there is no roont for the thought of God. and where the thonght of God is crowded out belief in God must onc day disappear, and this is especiltlly true of onr own land, which is prc-etninently the htnd of distractions. We are so absorbetl in business attd so bent on amuse- tnent that we are to() excited even to pray, and wheu we cease to pray we abandon the most elementary ex- ercise of faith, i"aith is essentially supernatttrat, and as Catholics are sttrrounded by those who seem to have abandoned the supernatural iu religion and to have snhstituted for it benevolence, philanthropy or some other natural virtne, it will readily be seen what precatttions tlley will have to take if real religion is not to dis- :tppear. They must be ever alive to rite need of this supernatural religion, for without it no man may hope to see God. Why everybody has not the gift of faith is not for us to say, but it is more intportant for us to realize that we possess it and that we ought to practice it than to indulge in spec- ulation abont its absence in others. For this reason I gladly avail myself of the opportunity afforded by the ready respottse of the Rttler of Caphar- nauru to renaind you of the spirtt of faith, attd I rejoice to be able to talk to you for a few Sunday evenings in succession on what is the greatest attraction in our faith. Catholics will find these exercises profitable for themselves and for their non-Catholic friends. For lhenlselves, to stir up the grace of God in their souls, and for others for whilst the power to believe is a good thing, it is connected with certain predispositions of heart and mind which Catholics ought to realize. Catholics often wonder at few converts that come from mis- sions, but this wonder eontesfront not understanding that it is not proof, but preparation, which souls outside the Church needs, attd until the prep- aration of mind and heart is had sotnc will be sin(ply indifferent; others will be too proud and independent to sub- mit to the yoke of the gospel; a third class will maintain they cannot be- lieve, no matter how much they may try, and finally some may helieve, but their faith is in danger from weak moral and intellectual foundations attd front the sceptical environments by which they are surrounded. As the Blessed Sacrament is the great magnate to attract souls, be- cause, like the spire on this splendid Cathedral, it appeals to the imagina- tion. The rector appealed to the peo- ple to make the most of Sunday be- cause it is the special (lay to honor and glorify our Lord in the Blessed Sacraments."in the evening Fatlter Tobin pref- aced his talks on the Blessed Euchar- ist with a reference to the great in- terest that has been aroused in re- cent years; he spoke of Eucharistic congresses, laying special stress on the one in Montreal, which he himself had the privilege of attending, and concluded by saying that these im- ntense gatherings known as Ettchar- istie congresses were brought to- gether for a hlgh and holy purpose which ntay be set forth in three short sentences : "t. To give the world an object lesson in true Catholic unity. ]t was easy enough to be one in the days of the first Christians, when the Catholic people of each country or city was homogenous in character, but not so easy in these tla3;s of divcrs nationali- ties living in the same community, and yet as the presence of a great Catholic truth like the real presence all differences are forgotten. "2. To remiud the world of rite teaching of the Church on the Blessed Eucltarist and in these days of in- difference to creeds and in this la,td reed is too strange no religion too unorthodox to bc with- out followers the lesson is a sahttary one. Catllolics sltould be able to t)oi,lt out to a worhl eager and anx- ions to hear tltat the l'lessed Sacra- nteut is co-extensive with the Chris- tiatt Church: that it has been front the beginning the bond of unity and the supreme act of Catholic worship, and that therefore the revolt of the Sixteenth C'entury was noe merely the defection of the people, but, as has beet( well said, "the overtllrow of Christ, the Eucharistic King, in mfi- tatiml of that other defiance of old. "We have no King but Caesar." "'.3. To strengthen practical religion an(1 piety in the hearts of all. both clergy and laity. If this third end be not secured Eucharistic congresses are failures m spite of all their gran- tleur and external display. The Bless- ed Eneharist is the expression of the lve of our divine lord, antl wc must show our love and appreciation in a practical way. ()ur forefathers died for the Mass, and they did not dic in vain, for whilst lmse martyrs of Ettcharistic faith sowed ill tears we, their spirit- ual chihh'en, are now free attd untno- lested to reap the harvest in joy. \\;.Vednesday, Nove,nber , is a holy day of obligation The honrs for Mass at the Cathedral will be 6. 7:3o and 9. On All Souls' day Mass will be at 7:3o and o. Begit]ning Friday night, and continuing during the Fri- day evenings of November. the way of the cross for the poor souls will be held at 7:3o. MARY P. HEDGES-- AN APPRECIATION. ] tirst knew Mrs. Mary Pattie Wright Hedges when she was mis- tress of a 1)latmttion houle in South- eastern Arkansas. autl while ] occu- pied the same position in my planta- tion honse in the Louisiatta lowl;ttads. In her I found a congenial, a kindred spMt; our "souls seemed kuit to- gether," and thus wits fortned a friend- ship which continued unbroken for years; indeed, so long 'ls she lived. Thongh meeting only at interwtls. tl]ough often widely separated, my husband's bnsiness carrying hint, to- getlter with myself beyond the seas and into different parts of Europe, never was the tie of affection that linked ns twain broken, never were our syntpathies, llopes attd amhitions tlisassociatcd. Ln many respects we were dissimilar, she having been brought up in the austere school of Prcsl)yterianism, I in the equally rigid creed of Catholocisnt, which faith she later, after ntature reflection and pa- tient investigation and fixed convic- tion, embraced; but while we differed in minor things, in all thosc matters wlfich make tip a real and not an arti- ficial life, we were in perfect accord. I learned to love her with a love which I never before had for one of nly own sox, nly mother ltaving died when I was an infant. As a noble woman, as an ideal and devoted wife, she stood forth oue anmngten thousand. 1;irmin her de- votion to right and justice, she in- spired the shrinking heart, the falter- ing step, to renewed effort and final success. She was truth personified. I never knew her to either tell o," act a falsehood in any relation of life.
