IS THERE A PURGATORY? Continued from page I There are two class of souls who go to Pttrgatory, jnst as there are two classes of persons sent to the penitentiary. The first class are those who depart froln this world and appear hefore the Eternal Judge guilty of venial or minor sins. Such souls cannot iu justice be con- sigltetl to hell, because they have not comnaitted a single capital or mortal sin against the law of God.

"Jn many things we all of- fend." James, ll/-t6. 'Men shall render an accottnt for every idle word that they shall speak." Mat- thew XI1.-36. When we reflect that the messenger of death conies like a thief in the night, that inuunaerable deaths are too sudden to allow any preparation and that a great number of people die in file same state in which they have been living, we umst allow that nlany die in venial sins. Since "God will render to every man according to his works." Route II-6, a tenq)orary place of punishnlent  and purgation between heaveu and hell is necessary that the justice of God ntay be ftfllilled. A second class of souls that go to Pttrgatory are those wlto depart from this world after the eternal guilt of their sins has been forgiven and before they have ntade saris- faction for the temporal gtfilt and temporal lmnishment belonging to it that frequently remai,ts due to sin after tile rentission of the eternal guilt and accompanying eternal pttnishnaent. The Catholic church nlakes a distinction between the eternal punishment due to sin and the tenlporal l)unishntent which frequently, though not always, may l/econte due. The same distinction is made in out" civil courts of justice. A man may be brought before a circuit court charged with a capital cl'ime as tnurder, to which the death penalty is attached. He is fonnd guilty and the jndge passes sentence of death upon him. But before the execntion of the sentence, the critni- nal seeks and ol)tains a pardon front the Governol( While the Governor ntay grant a full and conaplete lmr(lon, tile usual course is to l)ardon the death penalty only, and appoint a telllpora] l)ttnishnleut el" so lllany years in tile penitentiary. This method of pnnishnlent may also be followed I]y the Governor in cases of minor crimes or tnisdenteanors. It is a well known Catltolic doctrine that the power of.the priest acting as an agent of God ill the forgzvness of sin is a condition not an allsolute power, the chief condi- tion being sorrow in the heart of the penitem. It is equally well known that forgiveness is graded ac- cording to the degree of sorrow, there Ileing two degrees. One sor- row is called perfect when it is ex- cited in the heart ant of pure love of God and the othe," is called imper- fect sorrow because evinced through a mixed love. It is the contention of rite Catholic church that many sinners seeking pardon of God in tile sacranlent of penance, through the imperfection of the sorrow in their hearts fail to receive that com- plete pardon which would entitle them to heavenly citizenship, bnt that they still receive a pardon suf- licient to save them from eternal Imnishment in hell were they to die in that state. Owing'to the sudden- hess of death, it happens that many such souls may be supposed to de- part from this world sifter they have received l/arden of the eternal guilt of their sills attd before they have made satisfaction for the temporal guilt. Such souls go to Purgatory, a vestibule of heaven, where they Conduoledby SISTERSOF CHARITY. OF NAZARETH settle . to tile last iota their in- A Day and Boarding School debtedness to God.

I f Adam, David land the Corinthian, all of whom had been forgiven as to the eternal guilt of their sins, died before s'atisfaction was ntade for the tetnporal punislunent due to these sills, they went to Purgatory. ]n eonclugion it may be said that there are qnite a nttmber of people, like editors of newspapers and .sotne lawyers, who will one day be very glad there is a Purgatory, as they nlight go farther and fare worsel REV J. M. LUCEY. , CONSOLING THOUGHTS EAREST LORD! make us remember when tile world is cold and dreary and we know not where to turn for conlfort, that there is always one spot bright and cheerful--the Sanctuary. When we are in desolation of spirit, when all who are dear to us are passed away like sumlner flowers, and none are left to love us and care for us, whisper to our troubled souls that there is one friend who dies notone whose love never changesJesus on the altar. When sorrows thicken and-crush us with their burden we look in vain for colnfort, let Thy dear words conic forth with ftfll force from Thy tabernacle: "Come to Me all you who lahor and are heavily hurdened, and ] will refresh you." Thy friendship, dearest Ldrd, thenceforth shall be the dearest treasure we possess. It shall compensate for the treach- ery and ingratitnde of creatures. It shall be our consolation when the wild flowers are growing over the best loved ones, and when all who hold a dear place in our hearts are withered and gone! With Thy friend- ship tile world shall never be dreary, and life never without a charm. Would that we coukl realize tile pure happiness of possess- ing Thy sympathy! Would that we could feelwhen we are crushed and hulnhled-- when the hope we have lived for has with- et'edwhel sorrows and t,-ials that we dare uot reveal to any, make our soul sink well nigh unto death--when w4 look in vain for some one to understand ns. one who will enter into our miseries, make its rentember that there is One on the Altar who knows every fibre of our hearts, every sorrow, every pain special to our peculiar natures, and who deeply sytnpathizes with us. Contpassionate Jesus! our hearth crave for sytnpathy, and to suffer seems nothing to the bitterness of suffering alone. FR AUGUSTINE.
