CATHOLIC GTELS AS WIVES. (By Rev. D. A. Hanley in January x Donahoe's.) Nurtured as they have been in the true Church of God, Catholic women know full well "where to seek and re-I re-I ceive solace for their aching hearts in I times of trial and conjugal infelicity. That Church taught them that married mar-ried life waa not an invention of men, but an institution founded by their Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. They are taught not to trifle with a state so holy, but to prepare themselves for the marriage state by deep, careful thought and prayers for guidance. Once entered upon, death alone must and can sever the ties. Our Catholic girls are thought up to this doctrine and from infancy to the altar they have had impressed upon them the serious side of married life. Upon them devolves de-volves the Christian conduct of the home. In. their case the little ones are shaped and molded to future life. They themselves by a steadfast adherrence to the teachings of their faith, possess all the virtues necessary to sustain the buraens of the marriage state; a simple, sim-ple, pure and humble life, associated with the lesser but none the less essential es-sential domestic virtues, manifestly proves their value before God and men. And yet all they can bring to their aid, personal disposition, essential es-sential virtues and noble and high aims are all necessary. (By Rev. Eugene O'Growney in January Jan-uary Donahoe's.) We are familiar with the word Basilica aa a name for a church. In reality it is a Greek adjective, meaning mean-ing kingly and in this way probably for the house of King of Kings. Apparently Ap-parently the Latin adjective of the same meaning was used in a similar manner to some extent: at all events we find in use in Ireland from the ' earliest Christian times the word domhnach, taken from the Latin adjective, ad-jective, meaning (the house) of the Lord. Thus we have Donoughmore, the great church, Donoughpatrick near Navan in Meath, Balinelowney, the town near the church, and the surnames Muldowney Mullowney, Moloney, servant of the church. Mr. MacKenzie mentions Tobar an Domh-naich, Domh-naich, or the church well, the present name of a well in the Isle of Skyo near hand is Tobar na Slainte, the health-giving well. The word domhnach in Irish also means Sunday (the day) of the Lord, and it seems to me that this is the reason why in Ireland today we have several places called Sunday's well. There is one on the outskirts of Cork city, there is another in the suburbs of the ancient town of Mul'igar.
