SIR,-I was surprised to read Mr. Hickman's letter re "Trivial Thanksgivings " in last week's issue of the Centaur: HERALD.

Mr. Hickman is anxious to hide such information from non-Catholic writers. Why then, did he not send his protest direct, to the editor of the Irish Messenger, instead of inserting a letter in a paper much more widely read than the Irish Messenger, and 1 should imagine by many non-Catholic writers? It would almost seem that he was anxious that some non-Catholic writers should know what these trivial thanksgivings were, for he enumerates them in his letter, but are they trivial? We are told in Scripture that even the very hairs of our head are numbered by Divine Providence. Then why not thank God if we are preserved from going bald? Again, our Lord wrought His first miracle at a wedding, would it be too much to believe that He would grant fine weather (if asked) on a wedding day? I am afraid that neither Mr. Hickman nor non-Catholic writers will be able to stop Irish Catholics from thanking God for everything
