Certitude is the thing luck. ing outside the Church and it gives non Catholics greatest concern, for with no fixed doctrines and perfect ] freedom of interpretation of the Script- ures they are rapidly falling into sects and factions too numerous to longer maintain any weight as religious bod- ies. Impecoanility is not one of the at- tributes of the Pope for he is as eapa. ble of sin as any other mortal, but from iris situation is less liable to commit sin. The Pope is not impeccable. Protestants sometimes imply that Catholics believe tbe Pope impeeca'ble. Not behig able to shake she fidelity of Catholics upon the intallibility they seek so ridicule the doctrine by trying to represent it as a doctrine of impec- cability. AN EMERGENOY HOSPITAL. The move to establish an emergency hospital in the city will mcct with general approval.

Now there remain faith, hope and charity: aud the great- est of these is charity. May 8 Apparition of St. Michael. ANGELS from the name very expressive of their dties not their nur.ure, are messengms or minis. terim pirits ready to journey at the Lordss bidding to ditsant missions. Scripture bears record of many such messages, making explicit metion of the particular angels employed m par tioular cases. Thus Raphael accom- i)anied the boy Tobias on his memora- ble journey; Michael, IIeaven's chum. pion in its .war with she fallen legions, assists Gabriel in Ins work of consol- ing tim captive Daniel with prophetic news of the Messiah's speedy coming, and Gabriel is the herald of the Incar- nation, tile sweetest message evel borne from Iteaven to earth. This day, however, has been set apart to do honor to an appearance vo2ohsafod by St. Michael to a town of devout shepherds, living near the foot of amount Gargano, ia italy.

If all this be true, titan tlmro are certain evident conclusions which even the most uneducated may deduce from Mr. M'Conuetl's "train of thought."

Tender, soothing and inspiring are the thoughts that come lie tim gentle zephyrs to awaken Ms interest and in. rite his communion with perfumed solitudes where reigns perpetual truce with strifes and cares and unsatisfied ambitions. Thus surrounded man's / spiritual nature rices to appreciate the sublime and mingles with the super- natural. What, then, could have been more fitting than to dedicate this month of natural charm to the Mothe of Jesus whose virtues and pcrsonahty have been the model of all who strive to lead perfect lives? She loved all things tlmt charm thescnses and the refined sensibilities of a highly spirit- ual nature.

We associate all things beautifol and tender with tim thoughts of mother, and Mary being the spirit- ual mother of God's children, we go to her not only With our spiritual diffl. eulties, but wxtl our lmpes an] troub- les.

This being the jubilee ,year of the Declaration of the dogma of the Im- maculate Conception, and Shore being a largo majority of Catholics who seem to be unable to state what is meant by tim terms, we again give an explana*ion of it. The Immaculate Cotpception as taught by he Church means that the Blessed Virgin was conceived and born without original sin. It does not mean nor refer to the birth of Gl.rist. It would seem from observation timt catechism ought to be made more of a study by grown men and women, and that books treating in a popular THE GENERAL INTENTION. St Antoninus. FYER a boyhood remarkable for holiness, this saint entered the Order of St. Dominie at the age of six- teen. He was born at Florence in 1389 and died archbishop of his native city in 1459. Among his companions he was always noted for his modessy,can- dor and love of study. Games wce a small attraction in his eyes. He pre- ferred exercises of piety like prayer, conversation with the virtuous and pe- rusal of the lives of the saints. When sought l)e could always he found in the church ou his knees Rapid pros- ross marked his college career, and The Encyclical of our Holy Father coming to the Council of Florence, announcing the jubilee tells us what 1439, in the capacity of theologian, he spirit must animate us during tiffs was nmed archbishop ot the city by holy time: it is the spirit of gratitude to God for "th secret gifts of grace whluh God ires bestowed upon His Church through the intercession of Mary thr mghout this period." These wonderful gifts will be more fully set forth in the Messenger of the Sacred Heart for May. Our frith, too, our hope and charity should likewise in- crease during the time of jubilee; for the mystery of the Immaculate Con- ception contains, as it were, in germ, all the mysteries of our holy religion. Man's fall and original sin are there, and the sublime mystery of the Incar- nasmn: but the Irearnation meant the reopening of heaven to forgiven man, Pope Eugenius IV in spite of his re- moustrauees.
