All Hattlo Crook who can find ad
mission Into the Catholic church are
.lioro .an hour buforo tlmo. Last
evening standing room watt at n pre
mium and tonight , when the greatest
ecturo of the course will bo given
it Is most likely that more shall fall
to find seats than failed last night.
Flits mission Is for Catholics and
every Instruction Is for their uplift-
ng. Proselytlsm and the belittling
of the s'ects are eschewed and the
ono thing which the missionary alms
at , and says ho alms at , Is the con
version of a bad Catholic Into a good
ono , and of all the good onus into
When Father Walsh Induced Father
Shyno to como to Hattlo Creek and
give up for awhtlo the big cities , ho
perhaps know well that his own people
ple would profit much by the lectures
of this learned man , but ho may not
nave forseen what an Intellectual treat
ho was putting within reach of our
most cultured citizens. Father
Shyno's lecture on the Catholic doc-
trlno concerning the confession of
sins , was listened to last evening by
the largest and most Intelligent con
gregation that has over assembled
liero In any church to hear any ono
man. As the lecture lasted nearly an
liour and a half and was a succlent
scripture argument setting forth the
doctrinal grounds of confession , It
would bo too much to expect that an
adequate report could be given read
ers of this matchless piece of rhetoric
eric , logic and theology. The attempt
shall merely bo to Indicate the trend
of the arguments , omitting the Illus
trations and anecdotes which now
and then helped to slacken the mental
tension of the attentive audience.
The lecturer began by showing that
the savior loft a remedy for original
sin , as all true followers of Christ
acknowledge. Ho then showed from
St. Paul's first epistle and sixth chap
ter to the Corinthians , that the unjust ,
the fornlcators , the adulterers , the
thieves , the extortioners and the
drunkards should never possess the
klngdoiu of heaven If they died In
their sins. Now , he asked , "has
Christ left a remedy for original sin
and no remedy for our own actual
sins ? Has lie given men power to
remit the sin we Inherit and given no
power to remit tno sin we willingly
commit ? We are more sorely1 In
need of the means of freeing our
selves from actual sin than we are
of freeing ourselves from original
sin. Die In original sin only , and ,
according to the common opinion of
the theologians , you will enjoy a na
tural happiness transcending all the
happiness of the world. Die in a
grave actual sin or In original sin plus
the single -grievous sin , and you are
condemned to depart from Christ and
dwell forever where the worm dleth
not and the fire Is never extinguished.
Has Christ bequeathed to us any
remedy for those grievous sins of
ours ? That is the question I shall
answer this evening. I shall first
show that He promised the remedy :
2 , that Ho kept His promise ; 2 , that
he gave Ills apostles the power of
truly remitting sinI ; , that this power
differs from the power of baptising ;
5 , that it differs from the power of
preaching ; G , that this power will al
ways remain in the church ; 7 , that it
extends to all sins committed after
baptism , no matter how grave or
numerous ; 8 , that sins committed af
ter baptism cannot bo remitted with
out having recourse to this power
cither actual or virtually ; 9 , that
from the Institution of Christ this
power is judicial and hence It cannot
bo exercised unless the sinner mani
fests or confesses his sin.
These are the points which Father
Shyno proved last night by logical
deductions from Matt , xvi-xvll ; John
xx ; Acts xlx ; James x-10 ; and I John
1-9 While It Is quite evident that
Father Shyno Is a well trained logi
cian and a subtle theologian , gifted
with more than ordinary fluency of
language , It Is charming to observe
with what consideration ho treats all
who do not belong to his fold. If
there bo ono theme upon which un
cultured lecturers against the Cath
olic church have harped it is the con
fessional , and yet last night's lectur
er bestowed upon such calumniators
the charity of silence. This pleases
It would bo difficult to put the his
torical argument for the practice of
auricular confession as it was put last
night. What strikes the unltlated
most about confession Is that more
seems to depend on the penitent than
upon the priest who absolves.
The confession must bo humble
"God reslstoth the proud , but to the
humble ho glvoth peace. This humil
ity Is shown by the submission of the
penitent by his accepting willingly
to do the penance Imposed or return
111 gotten goods or restore their val
ue , by not blaming others for his
faults. It must have the qualities of
the prodigal son's confession. It
must bo simple and glvo nothing but
ono's own sins and It must follow the
mlor of the coninmnUniontH of Oed
uid Ihoro must bo no mention of the
names of others. Kvory sin has a
scriptural name , that and no more Is
The confession must bo slneero.
'The deceitful man the Lord will
abhor. " Como not to the Lord with
i double heart. The Kins must bo
told as one believes God sees them.
The confession must be entire ; that
H all mortal sins , their exact num
ber If possible and the circumstances
changing their species ; the contrition
without which confession and absolu
tion are worthless must bo Interior ,
supernatural , sovereign and universal.
Such was David's , Mary Magdalen'- ;
and such must bo the qualities of
everyone who wishes God to forgive
The missionary concluded by sayIng -
Ing : To you who are of the house-
told of faith I am talking and 1
would have you bear In mind that no
contrition no mater how perfect you
nay consider It , over Justifies you ,
over restores you your title to heaven ,
ever reconciles you to God except In
so far as It Includes the explicit or
Implicate desire of the sacrament of
penance which you Intend to up-
iroach as soon as you can , When
yon need the sacrament and cannot
actually receive It , If your contrition
ncludcs the desire of going to con
fession and Is perfect contrition your
sin or sins are remitted , but the ob
ligation of confessing these sins re
It will not do to say that the end
Is already obtained for there Is an
adequate and a total end which Is
obtained by contrition but there Is n
liartlal and particular end which Is
not obtained. For while the end of
lienanco Is the remission of sin , It
Is also a means which reduces us to
proper subordination ; It Iu a means
against the license of sinning ; It Is
a moans by which the sinner per
forms a just penance ; and above all
It is a means by which the sinner be
comes more certain of the remission
of his sins and by which too he
makes satisfaction to God. You must
UBO this means If you have lost your
baptismal Innocence. Llko to Augus
tine : "Confess or burn. "
