Lenten-Pastoral, The regular J-rf-nlcn pastoral which Bishop Matz issuedlast -week and had read throughout the diocese on Sunday morning, is accounted one of the most interesting and scholarly writings which the ordinary of the Denver diocese dio-cese has ever given to tlie publie. From the pastors throughout, the state have come encomiums on the work, and it will be widely reprinted within the next few weeks. The daily papers here have given space to the pastoral, and it is pro- , claimed by those who have read it the very best paper of its kind that hau come from the pen of P.ishop M.atz. "Authority" is the subject of the pastoral pas-toral letter, and it covers a book of fourteen pages. The pastoral was not, read in full last Sunday, but will be continued at a future datev A small idea of the. merit of the communication may be derived from the . loliowmg, which is quoted from its text: Keliglon says to -every man, prince or plebian, rich or poor, capitalist or laborer: respect the law and how to the a.uthority which in every state and condition of life is the sanction of the law. Yea, worship authority with a deep veneration as an emanation from God, since the aspostle says that all authority is from God. Worship it within with-in yourself by a faithful - compliance with all that the will, directed by reason rea-son and enlightened by -faith, commands. com-mands. Worship it in the family by venerating father and mother as God's representatives; the niore'so'as this veneration is made the subject of an especial commandment. Worship it in the civil power, since St. Paul tells us: 't every soul be subject to higher powers; for thei-c is no power but from I God; and those that are, are ordained of God" Rom. xiii, 1. And to impress upon our minds how great a crime It is to rebel against authority, he adds: "Therefore he that resisteth the-power, resisteth the ordinance of God; and they that resist, purchase to tiiemselves damnation." Rm. xiii, 2. Worship it above all in the' church of God. for she is the highest representative of the divine di-vine power on earth whose consecration consecra-tion is from God direct. For Christ has said to his apostles: "He that heareth you heareth me, and he that riispiseth you dispiseth me; and he that dispiseth me. dispiseth him that sent me," Luke x. 16. GEORGETOWN, COLO.
