increased missionary effort" Mgr. Moynagh thinks that God's Providence has spared Ireland the war's devastation for this very purpose_ Should we not make a mighty missionary effort as our humble thankoffering, and give to souls what we did not give to battle ?
TWO GREAT NUNS
The Religious of Ireland. surely her glory, have lost two greatly honoured nuns. One was Mother Gonzales, that Dominican whom hundreds of Irishwomen in high places remember with gratitude from their student days, when she watched over them at Eccles Street —that nursery of fine womanhood. The influence of this noble and scholarly nun is felt throughout the land.
The other nun was Sister Columcille, of the St. Louis Order. The present writer may be allowed, perhaps, to recall a summer's day in 1916, when at Monaghan he saw two brilliant young scholars professed as Sisters Columbanus and Columcillc — names of our two chief missionary saints. A few weeks ago, Sister Columbanus became Mother-General of the far-extending Sisterhood of St. Louis but as she laid her masterful hand to the tasks before her, the nun who would have been her best of helpers died : and a thousand pupils of Sister Columcille's teaching mourn a teacher and administrator in the highest traditions of the Brigids of Ireland.
