Society St Patricks Conference Report Applauded by the Con vention Right Rev Bishop McCloskey and Father Connolly Speak HOW WE SHOULD GIVE IN CHARITY The first quarterly meeting of the St Vincent de Paul conferences of Louisville was called to order Sunday after noon at St Francis Hall by President Campbell and was formally opened with prayer by Right Rev Bishop McCloskey The first business was spiritual reading by Secretary Doyle who selected an ex tract from the quarterly After this they minutes of the previous quarterly meet ing were read and approved About thirty five new applications were received into the membership throughout the worldThe next business was the reading of the reports of the different conferences for the year 1900 All of these reports showed that great work had been accom pUshed some of the smaller conferences making an especially fine showing The one which attracted most attention and received the applause of the convention was that of St Patricks conference which was a grand and gratifying sur prise to all The reports of the Treasurer and Presi dent of the particular council were then made The new conference of St Philip Neri made a report which shows that they are progressing nicely One of the features of the meeting was the short speech by the Rev Father Con nelly of St Brigids who had with him all of the members of his new conference it having been organized on Washingtons birthday February 22 Father Connelly stated that they had twentytwo young men and lesired to be received at once or as soon as possible St1eorges relegy hna r pre sentative and stated they desired to organize a conference President Campbell then called upon the President of the new conference of St Charles Borroraeos who stated that they had been organized some three weeks and had fortytwo members Their work was progressing nicely The President then called upon the Right Rev Bishop who addressed the meeting speaking principally on the reports which he had listened to with much in terestThe Bishop spoke earnestly on the sub ject of charity urging those who heard him to be on the alert to do deeds of kindness for their fellowman in need and so to honor Jesus Christ the Catholic church and to bring those to God who now kcow Him not He counseled strongly against any ostentation in giving declaring that in the sight of God the poor publican was worthier than the Pharisee who boasted of his good deeds and generous gifts His address in full appears elsewhere- Of course the meeting could not ad- journj without hearing from the Spiritual Director Monsignor Bouchet who made some remarks complimenting the brothers on the fine showing they had made and urging all who were present and not members to become members at once The following conferences were rep resented Cathedral St Johns St Michaels Sacred Heart St Louis Ber trands St Patricks St Cecilias- It was indeed a grand sight to see St Francis Hall filled with so many active Vincentians It showed that the interest which had once existed in the work of this society bad been renewed or stimu latedand the very fact that the Right Rev Bishop was to address the meeting filled the hall to overflowing There were present some four or five hundred and the number of applicants which all confer ences reported shows that they are all working like beavers in this great work of charity The Secretary reported that the Committee on Good Works had found that they were unable to attend to the duties and were compelled to secure the help of two more members in the work of teach ing Sundayschool at the ousc of Refuge His remarks were listened to with much interest JOHN BULL i Will Stagger Forever Cost of the Boer War One after another the expectations with which Mr Chamberlains war in South Africa was begun have been disap pointed says tlje New York World It was to be a abort war over in six monthsI at most It has ben going on seventeenl month and Englishmen are still asking when will it end It was not going to require more than 60000 men at most ItIMS already called out 360000 men of whom over 60000 hate beea kilJaor jmV out ot neUoa and aO000 more are e c i n now being collected to fill the gaps Inexpenjhefall finally upon the Rand mineowncrs in whose interests primarily it was CHARLES E TENNY Comedian and Dancer For Emmet Cele bration begun And the defeat of this expecta tion is the keenest disappointment of all It touches John Bull in hismost sensitive spothis pocket Sir Michael HicksBeach Chancellor of the Exchequer will have no easy task to make his forthcoming budget palatable reading to the British taxpayer His estimate of the cost of the war when it commenced was 50000000 It has already cost more than eight times as much 407500000 and Sir Michaels impending budget will it is now semi officially announced estimate the cant of it for the ensuing fiscal year at 350000 000 more The weekly expenses of the war he informed the House on Friday are from J5000000 to 0500000 And the expectation so fondly entertained at the outset that nearly the whole cost of the war could be somehow taken out of the gold mines of the Rand is no longer regarded as feasible The entire bill which can not fall far short of 750000000 will have to be borne by the British taxpayers If added to the permanent debt it will entail an annual interest charge of about 20 000000 forever The income tax is always the war tax in Britain and the bulk of it collected from the middle classes and the professional menthe very classes which forsook the Glad stoniaapeacerprindpleatofKwhichtheywere porters and gave Mr Chamberlains war its popularity A doubling of their in cometax bills with additional direct taxes on their tea coffee sugar and tobaccothere

announcement of Judge W Nick Vaughans candidacy for Pi secuting At torney of the City in these columns two Conrti1deread with interest From tions commending position we select the following written by one of Louisvilles most popular ad uptodate young ladies who has had experience and knows whereof she spells There is no use for a titan to hide his light under a bushel It is afoolish thing tto do The bushel is apt to catch fire and the department be called out I make this remark with reference to my good friend Judge W Nick Vaughan wio is a candi date for Prosecuting Attorney of the City Court The Judge has lade a good official because he knows tseamy side life sinningeoni tirtl1eI i makes us tempe justicewitbmercy- The truly good man who has walked in the narrow path with both feet would have no mercy he would say to the cul prits I am holier thou thou get thee to the workhouse But the Judge has a kind heart and knows the sinner may fall over his feet seven times seven and maybe pull out all right in the eighth inning I can not help mentioning an instance of his kind ness The Humane Society once had a woman presented in court in order that the court would take her children from her alleging that she was not fit to raise them The woman sobbingly admitted the charge but pointed to the fact that the two children were well cared for and well dressed and it was evident they adored her It was decided that the children should be sent to the School of Reform and then a wretched scene en sued They clung to their mother walling and moaning one child fainted when they tried to remove her and old case hardened lawyers who would have had to take a bottle of tobasco sauce to get any water in their eyes were melted to tears and some left the courtroom The chil dren were finally removed however and taken out to the School of Reform The mothers grief was agonizing The Judge was moved He couldnt stand the sight of a womans grief so that evening he went to a woman friend and told her of the case Her sympathy too was in terested and womanlike she condoned the sinner in the mother The following day the Judge secured permission to bring the children back but on condition that they be placed with some good woman who would permit their mother to visit them as often as she pleased He and his friend hunted around and found a nice motherly old soul who agreed to care for them and they were brought back in triumph to town It is needless spotbher children to her The erring can expect no mercy from the saints Now if all the men in town who are doing the serpentine had their children taken from them there would be a necessity to build at least ten more Schools of Reform to accommodate the juveniles Charity knows no law and a kind heart has no politics Women are

RECKONED WITH The new Parliament has quickly fallen under the domination of the United Irish party says the Worlds London special cablegram While the British members have been collecting their wits the Irish men have calmly taken the whole con duct of parliamentary affairs in their own handsSeventyfive of them under John Red mondare in the House all the time los ing no opportunity of making their senti ments heard on any and every question The English members sit and look on in bewilderment and are already learning to be glad if any one of their COO contrives to keep the AngloSaxon end up occa sionallyThe debate on the address is to last nine days Four of the days have been absolutely appropriated to Irish amend ments leaving five to the affairs of the rest of the empire and of these quite a third has been taken up by Irish speeches There is no suggestion of obstruction it is simply active interest in imperial affairsThe Ministers recognize that the Irish party is once again a force to be reckoned with and the Irishmen finding parliamentary work so easy and interesting are arranging to take over its management of affairs generally They have organized themselves into committees not only on Irish but on foreign and British affairs They provide twothirds of the questions on all topics put to the Ministers every day Dillon has dealt a deadly blow to the Government by

ODonnell who attempted to address the House in Irish Tuesday night said in justification Onefourth of the population in Ire land speak the Irish language and trans act the greater part of their business in that tongue My object in speaking Irish on Tuesday night was simply to draw at tention to the fact that the English Government has done its best to kill the Irish language Irish literature and Irish intel lect While I know English I can speak Irish more fluently and with far less trouble I never spoke a word of English until I was twelve years old I learned French and Latin and

United StatesHow She Will Be Canon- Ized Before Mother Elizabeth Seton can be canonizedas the first saint who lived in the United States as a result of the inquiry begun by the Very Rev P S Mc Hale President of Niagara University a long and tedious inquiry must be concluded It must first be proved by competent witnesses that Mother Seton was in her life a person of eminent virtues and that by her direct intercession miracles were performed The process of canonization extends over years and sometimes over centuries The candidate must have possessed the three theological virtues Faith Hope and Charity and the four cardinal sir tues Prudence Justice Courage and Temperance The process is held before the Congregation of Rules in Rome If the first trial issues satisfactorily the candidate is called Venerable by a Papal commission which is issued ten years after the transmission of the facts to the Isrthen called the Pope makes known his judgment and when all is finished the ceremony of beatification takes place iiu St Peters Rome Mrs Seaton was the daughter of a dis tinguished New York doctor After the early death of her husband she devoted her life to teaching and to the building up of the Order of the Sisters of Charity now a vast and powerful sisterhood AQUINAS UNION MEETING The last regular monthly meeting of the Aquinas Union was a very busy one Matters of much importance

Sunday Afternoon Dwells on Spiritual Work of St Vincent do Paul Society Loft Hand Should Not Know What the Right Has Done WHAT THE YOUNG MEN CAN DO The Kentucky Irish American takes pleasure in presenting its readers this week the able and eloquent address of the venerable Bishop McCloskey of this city delivered Sunday afternoo at the quarterly meeting of the Louisville con ferences of the St Vincent de Paul So cietyThedistinguished prelates remarks so impressed the 500 present that tyanV1 young men who heard him have resolved upon joining the greatest Catholic charity i society recognized by the church Bishop McCloskey spoke in a feeling and cheery manner as follows I must thank your President for having invited me to come here today I am always ready to come to any meeting of this kind if I am put in mind of itj but I thank him more than I had expected to because I see such a magnificent body of men here before me There is something noble and something grand in a meeting of a body of men such as this You can get good and pious souls from among the women together without any trouble I hope there are none listening to me out therej but it is not so common to see as sembled such a body of earnest and straightforward Catholic men A society like the St Vincent de Paul Society can do a work which no others can do and one great good is their example When you see a half a dozen men in a congregation straightforward attentive to their religion upright walking as God would have them walk no matter what their vocation in life maybe that is the salt of that congregation and the people look up to them Say what we will virtue draws always it draws 1 wLetherfounrHntheblds m and it draws particularly when it Is manU fested in man I was sitting there listening quietly and I regretted to learn that so few go to the proportionabout onehalf There are sometime only five or six at a meeting Every man should be in his place at the meetings of the St Vincent de Paul Society Not one should be absent and no excuse ex cept sickness or something of that kind should be taken because if one drops off in attendance another will They will say They can get along without me etc but when all of them are present each one is encouraged Every one will go to the meetings feeling sure that he will find the other members there and all + are strengthened and interested And then another thing I am just going to tell you a few things that oc curred to me lest I forget them Another thfng that struck me was the time of holding the meetings If they are held imme diately after mass at 1030 or 11 in the morning on Sunday it is probable the members arc there for church They are on the spot as it were but they donf come particularly to be there for the SocietyItand I believe it is an injury to the so ciety I wouldnt be honest if I didnt say so to you To hold the meetings thingOfvespers or at night the members more likely come for that purpose because vespers is a devotion that is not usually largely attended I thought you all Vincentians until I heard your President say there were same here who were not Such a meeting as this will draw them The blessing of God will draw them all to you The very announcement of this meeting has stirred up all the conferences Father ConnellyF of St Bridglda is in earnest He henchis men together and wanted to affiliate at once and become enrolled in the ranks law or no law laughter That show rr- an earnestness and honest enthusiasm that is bound pqforSt Georges desires to have the rut d regulations so they can institute one Every church In the city should have a jconference of the St Vincent dc Paul Society attached to it There is one thing I want to say and it seems to me you cant help doing it and that is when you make your house to house visitation on your errands of mercy to pick up all the information you can when you are there You can do itiaquiet way and ascertain whether

1901 ROBERT EnriET What sentiments of lofty patriot ism the name of Robert Emnie brings to the minds Not only iiis his name honored by Irishmen the world over but is likewise revered by patriots of all nations and aU climes Robert Emmet for patriot ism stands at the head of all met in history He is in a class to him self No man of his years so loftily disdained to cringe before the oppressor and more eloquently as serteti his rights before a court ben on Convicting him Robert Emmet though guilty of no crime went to the scaffold asserting his right and the right of his country to be free and independent His eloquent ad dress in the face of the court and of death will for centuries be handed down to posterity by all nations as- a model for patriots to attempt tc follow though few can hope tc equal him We of Irish blood should feel proud of Robert Emmet and prouder still that Ireland has furnished the world many men of the same order March 4 next to St Patricks Day ought to be dear to the heart of every Irishman and the anni- verSary might to G jeiieiallyf l cele brated by all classes of our race MOBAND We do not approve of mob vio lence It is wrong morally as well as a violation of law but mob out breaks are caused by counter irri tants of outlawry and finally result in bringing about observance of law forcing tardy officials to do their duty and rid the community of evil characters like storms clear the at mosphere The Mrs Nation crazy crusade against saloons in Kansas demonstrates this It was caused not by the sale of liquor with a due regard for order and decency but by the keepers of joints who dis regarded all law whose places were resorts for criminals and dens of vice a nuisance and menace to the community All efforts to have the officers of the law restrain or sup press such places failed The Nation craze gave the people the opportunity to do what the officers of the law would not do and the crusade has spread resulting in riot and bloodshed until the officials are face to face with the alternative of suppressing the joints or a revo lution throughout the State The officialsseem to have decided on the first and the joints which they should never have permitted to exist are closing up and their pro prietors and habitues are leaving the State to avoid prosecution Mrs r lion and her followers though feted and under charges will not be punished mobs seldom are because it is impossible to get a jury to convict the community regarding their acts as justifiable and placing the blame where it properly belongs on the officials who tolerated and protectedoutlawry instead of prohibiting and suppressing it BRITISH CRISIS IMMINENT The decline of the new British consols war loan for the Boer war to below par in the London Stock Exchange haft disconcerted the Ministry and foulafear of lack of funds the MiffMtioa and cooMdaration of providing 1 U e V meant horn other sources without 9v increasing the tax directly on the English people the enacting of tariff and export taxes etc Nc request will be made of Parliamenl for the issue of more consols and there seems to be uncertainty as to Parliaments action on the other proposition but the war is still on More troops supplies and expense must be provided The expense has been enormous the drains on the military forces of the empire the loss of life and the number oi cripples and invalids larger than isi generally supposed There is growing dissatisfaction among the intelligent classes over the situation and the gloomy pros pect of continued war draft upon the populace interruption of trade and the future taxation to pay for it all and it is becoming manifest in business circles The sentiment in favor of a truce and the settle ment of the South African trouble by compromise and concession is spreading outside of the official classes and the Government is finding it difficult to maidtain its vaunted position of continuing the war on terms of unconditional sur render and complete conquest It is prolonged at too great expense and loss of life and trade with no more signs of success indeed than a year ago- While a rigid censorship of tele graph and press prevents the real condition in South Africa and the discontent in England and the colonies from being known the fact that the exportation troops from British ports continues slid calls for volunteers have been renewed to the colonies is evidence that un conditional surrender and complete conquest are not at hand nor even in view in the near future The withholding of the true condition of affairs can not be maintained longer without exciting or rather aggravating the suspicions of the public that things are not as the Ministry would have the world believe and already annoying ques tions are being propounded to the Government by representatives of ommercial manufacturing and industrial interests The change in sovereign is given is grounds for delay to afford an opportunity to consider conditions tad decide on a future policy In the meantime the Boer war continues with its heavy cost of money tad men trade languishes industries are idle English stocks and loads decline money rates are sigh credit limited with depression mid uncertainty causing stagnation and discouragement throughout all ranches The English and Colonial capitalists finding no safe or profitable investment for their noney at home are investing in foreign stocks and enterprises manufacturers unable to obtain ontracts against foreign competitors are seeking more favorable locations and conditions to move their plants to the United States and elsewhere merchants are establishing foreign branches and igencies with the same object the labor and farmer classes with slack employment and low prices because of no foreign demand for English products are discontented over depressed conditions and gloomier prospectsThe of the British Gov ernment and press is to conceal alll this from the British people andl becomIiugteal Parliamenth rare complaining the English merchants manufac turers laborer and farmers are taking question They can let onger be evaded It must in duetl II time come up in some shape in the British Parliament and an advert e vote in that body on an issue of Government policywhat the Goi ernment dreadsmeans a complete surrender by the Government or a dissolution of Parliament and an election upon those issues throughout the empire The present conditions and feeling of the peopl indicate overwhelming defeat for then it will be the people and not the club snobs who will give expression to the popular will Who is Judge of the PoliceCourt anyhow 2 Well Aaron Kohn seen to be He may not write the decisions as is alleged but they are just as he would decide in certain case in which he is interested When the cases against the poolroom keepers operators and habitue were called in the Police Court Mr Kohu moved for a coutinuanc for six weeks as he wished to take a trip to California There are Judges who would have promptly overruled his motion and fined and sent him to jail for Contempt iin offering such a motion but in the Police Court it was taken under advisement In the meantime Kohn makes an agreement with the Prosecuting Attorney who seems to have caught on to the tail of Aarons kite instead of looking after the interests of bis clientthe Stateand Kohn gains his point the Judge agreeing The law prohibits under penalties the running of a poolroom warrants are piling up in the Clerks office but the law is suspended while Kohn

by having a a a stock IIWrt t fa Tbeee are effectively mode of I It goM of silver ribboa combined I eta hboa I VINCENTIANS CONTINOBD PROM FIRST PAOB is something for you here is some money to help you or some provisions I know you are in need II Thatls not It You ought to go there as a French or a Ger man or an Italian priest would go to his equal taking off his hat and bowing to the person in need You go to them like you are honored to be with them andrespect them because they are the poor of Jesus Christ You must first win their hearts You are business men and you talk with them about different things and get their confidence and in that way you save them from that feeling which the poor have There is a sensitiveness in the poor which shrinks from anything like charity put in that shape We come to help you because you are in need II You come to see them and visit them because you are brethren in faith You happen to hear of their distress and it is not necessary the first time to speak about helping them unless it would come about naturally It is ai important thing in dealing with the poor to have that kindness arid that charity and that respect for them When they see that you are interested in them and in their souls and all that then if I may use the ex pression they thaw out and their hearts open to you you can do as you please with them Then you can find out these things How many a young man has gotten to be a good practical Catholic and become successful in a buslnes line who was won by the gentle words of a member of the society He does not speak to him about religion He does not thrust it upon him at all but in a general way talks about it The man doesnt practice his religion perhaps he hasnt been to confession for yeats Dont you see what that means He wins each a soul Some have not been practicing their religion because they have had a falling ont with the pastor or they have had a qaarrel with some Catholic and it has angered them and so they act as if they would spite Almighty God and refuse to go to church How easy it is for a man who has that tact which you all are supposed to have that tact gentle ness and kindness that will not include religion upon them but wins their henrts through kindness and then they will listen to what you have to say about the otherThen how many have never been confirmed Sometimes they have an idea that it is necessary to be examined in the church about their catechism That used to be atrold idea But what a spir itual work you are doing I The corporal work is grand but the other is better and both are a part of your work And then the children In seeing that they attend Catholic schools you can have a tremendous influence in that way The counsel of a solid intelligent man goes so far There is a respect that goes with it that does not accompany others and so where you find children attending Godless schools you can get the parents to send them to the parochiall schools In those schools here they have no re ligion if a question about religion should come up in the history of the Jews or something else and a child should ask the teacher about it the latter dare not answer His lips are sealed It is against the law to inform a child be cause if he explains how Jesus Christ came and died for man there may be a dozen there who do not believe in Christ at all so for that reason it is that a child who grows up under such an influence and in such an atmosphere stands in such great peril of losing its soul That is an another great spiritual work you can do Day after day week after week all this work is going on in our city per formed by you It certainly must sanctify it See what a mass of visits on charitable missions what kindly words what a quantity of spiritual instruction what acts of kindness and love arc the result of your labors in this noble society I These reports show alt of that It is in deed that charity that St Pauls speaks of charity and love for our neighbor He says that one may have faith sufficient to remove mountains but if he has not charity which is the love of God and our neighbor it will avail him not See what an evangelization is going on through the city from one end to the other I am glad of another thing and that is to see so many young men members of the society There is an impression that all Vincentians are or should be old and venerable looking like their prototype St Vincent himself We know it is not so There is an earnestness and a vigor about a young man that carries a power with it He has an energy to work After a person reaches a certain age he has not that energy and buoyancy of spirit that a young man possesses A young man wins because he is young There is something about a young man in his frank smile nd honest face and hq straightforward way of acting that is magnetic and also invites confidence His heart is as it were open before you as should be the case with all true Vincentians and you feel that nothing is lurking there of a deceitful nature It is not necessary for me to say anything about yourselves individually for you can see how you are sanctifying your own souls What a sanctification it is to a man to be concerned about the poor and to help them kindly and for Gods sake and not to let the left hand know what the right hand is doing Not like so many in the world as we see in the newspapers do who parade their charity aiid cry out with a trumpet voice what they have done It is like the Pharisee as he stood telling Almighty Godas if He did not know it what he had done that he paid tithes etc and he thanked Him he I was not like that poor devil in the corner that publican who was beating his breast because of his sius There is a great deal of that spirit nowadays God will say again as He said then that that poor pubhican as be stood therein sorrow for 1h11iI1IIiWS justified and that ia a strong Old TeetamentRJeUingto- GOdrjtbectba the man who paraded bill good work before the world One of the flret Brings tollern in roar I ii j work asyou all knowthg been Instructed in your faitii k that the left hand should not know Aat the right has done in charity butrdp it for God and leave Him to reward it as He will How much of the rewardjwhich a man would gain how much of the merit which would be his in heaven Is lost for well meaning charity from letting it be known I This work sanctifies yur touls and this can not be repeated top often It is like God it carries a power whenever it is repeated As St Augustine tells us and it is in our office for tthnorrowGod- will say one day You t1td nothing for me you did not help me you lid not care about me in the world When did we ever see you on earth How could we have refused to help you when we never saw you on earth r Because you did not do it to my poor because you did not help them = Go 1 St Au gustine always goes tothe bottom orR thing He turns it around and views it in all lights The moment a priest gets hold of his breviary there is something about St Augustines writings that with out even seeing his name at the top he knows the author One wilt say in trying to get out of the dilemma the propo sition affords Yes there are flames there is fire and one wilt be punished by those flames but it will be only tern porary The answer Iis rhat punish meat shall last forever In serving the poorest and humblest man you are helping Christ When you are doing him a kindness when you are soothing him in his afflictions when you are administering to him spiritually you are doing it for Christ himself and your rewardwill he exceeding great if you do it with a pure and loving heart If you didnot succor the poor you did not care for Christ because the poor are His This thought regarding the compensa tion for your work is one of the consola tions which you have It makes my heart thrill with joy to see this large assembly I did not expect it I thought it would be a dull quarterly meeting with a smallattend ance but It looks as if the true spirit of St Vincent was moving and animating- you if Now let each one do his best to get others to join Be like St Vincent What a unique and beautiful character he was He did not seem to be doing anything and yet was accomplishing much lIe would say about any new scheme of charity presented to him for approval Well yes tbat ls good I think so ahd yet he wits directing it all the time He seemed to be saying merelyI think that isa good thing yes go on The founding off the Sisters of Charity would be called by some people nowadays an accident It was an acci dent in one sense but there are no acci dents with God This was an order established several hundred years ago at a time when you might think they did nothing but fight among the nations but there were ladies then who dressed in silks and satins and who attended never theless the poor and took care of them That is how the Sisters of Charity started Here these women were noble ladles chiefly iooingafteftbe1rest of the poor going to seethem at their homes saying I hope you are better bringing them comfort nursing them in their afflictions even those with sores aud ulcers but they could not lift them they did not have the strength and they neededassistants So they suggested to St Vincent who was atTthe bottom of it all who was the quiet moving power who lid not let his left band know what his right was doing what they needed He said I am a peasant myself and I know many good women a Acqs near my birthplace I will gets me of them to come here He sent for them and a dozen or so of big strong brawny armed women came and they helped these ladies and they caught the spirit of their leader So I am sure if there are any present today who are not members they will catch the spirit of this work Some of the ladies suggested the idea to St Vincent Oh yes St Vincent thought it might be a good thing Out of that beginning grew the Sisters of Charity of St Vincent de Paul Now they are all over the world We talk of the mustard seed There was mustard seed for you and an example of its wonderful growth on good soil If there was anything striking in the character of St Vincent it was his simplicity and while he seemed to be doing very little merely helping others and suggesting things for their betterment he was guiding and controlling them and doing a great and noble work Politicians have that tact in the world That is the way St Vin cent did his work in spiritual affairs So now in conclusion may the Lord bless you and your families and give you that spirit of St Vincent which is necessary to one whd wants to do his work well LENTEN SERVICES V 5i The Lenten exercrsarat St Louis Ber trands church are as follows Sunday night Vespers rosary sermon benedictionWednesday Roavy sermon and benediction it
