ON THE DEATH OF POPE LEO XIII, JULY 20, 1903



   The sad, sudden announcement of the decease of Pope
Leo XIII, touches the heart and will move the pen of
millions.  The intellectual, moral, and religious energy
of this illustrious pontiff have animated the Church of
Rome for one quarter of a century.  The august ruler
of two hundred and fifty million human beings has now
passed through the shadow of death into the great forever.
The court of the Vatican mourns him; his relatives
shed "the unavailing tear."  He is the loved and lost

of many millions.  I sympathize with those who mourn,
but rejoice in knowing our dear God comforts such with
the blessed assurance that life is not lost; its influence
remains in the minds of men, and divine Love holds
its substance safe in the certainty of immortality.
"In Him was life; and the life was the light of men."
(John 1 : 4.)
