SERMON AT CATHEDRAL.
Delivered by Rev. r. Boland, of
Rov. 1'. Holantl, of Towanda, n most
forceful nnd rloquent Bpcaltor, tlellv
cred a Rcrinou htHt night at St. Peter's
cathedral, the occasion beliiR the third
of a serleH of icclal Sunday nlKht
Lenten services for men. Father Ro
land ppoke particularly upon tlio Ro
man Catholic church as the only true
teacher of Mvlne. truth and the neces
sity1 of all her disciples obeying her
ptveepts during the scanon of Lent,
lie spoke earnestly upon the bless
lugs und grace which follow a parti
cipation Mlth the proper spirit In tho
service of the Stations of the Ctos,
"If a inan'H faith Is ho dead," said he,
"that he can look upon a representa
tion of the crucified Savior without
feeling a deep sense of sorrow for hH
moral transBrcsslons, can that man
expect Mlthout a moral rejuvenation
to ever sec tho glorified countenance
of Ood In heaven?
"Let us be nil wise In our time,"
said he. "Let us ever cling tenaciously
and firmly to the Cnthotlo church, the
pillar of truth: let tm remember every
day of our lives that wo ate the heirs
of the glory of those early Christians
Mho wen torn to pieces In the Roman
arena nnd let our lives hi an evidence
thereof, so thut when Me are called on
the Inst day we can say with St. Paul:
'I have fought n good fight. I have
ilnlsht'd my course, I have kept the
faith: henceforth there Is laid up for me
n crown of ilghteousness which the
Lord, the righteous Judge, shall give
mo at that day.' "

MORNING SERMON OF REV. DR.
Another In the Serle-j in Which He
Has Been Discussing Christian
Science His Topic Was "What the
Text Book of Christian Science
Says About the Coming Kingdom."
Before Wc Get Into the Kingdom
of God, His Kingdom Must Bo
in Us Lessons That He Drew.
In the Flist Presbyterian church
yesterday morning Rev. James Mc
Li'od, D. V., dellveied another of his
series of Christian Science sermons.
Ills topic was "What tho Text IJooks
of Christian Science Say About the
Coming Kingdom," and he took his
text from Mntthow C- 10: "Thy king
dom coinc." Ills discourse follows:
l-roin the beginning ot Chrisl's ministry until
lis clewe tlio things pertaining to the kingdom
ot (ltd lay very iloso to Mis heart. All IIU
thoughts and words nnd deeds had refrrenre
cither directly or Indirectly to the nfTalrs ol
this kingdom, lip unfolded Us meaning in prra
bleu, ami lie pictured not only Its nature and Its
extent and its duration, hut also Its mighty con
quests, nnd its unparalleled glory.
Jesus loied Hod's kingdom, and He still loiet
It. l-'or its sake He, tlio eternal fiod, became
Inearnifp and Ibed among men in this wmlil
of sin; for Its akp Up tolled, and suffered, and
agonlrod and died; tor Its sake He triumphed
our death and tho graic, and ascended to glory:
and for its il;o Ho Is now our Vdsocatc with
Ine Father, nor will lie pp nil of the tr.uall ot
Ills soul and bo fully Mtlsiled, until thp gnat
lolcrs In hcatni wilt be hcatil ciylng: "'I he
kingdoms of this world arc become the kingdoms
nf our bord nnd of His flirist; and He Mull
reign forcier nnd eer." Thai diy will suiely
i oino, and hence we ought to give most earnest
heed b the words ot JfMis when he tells lis
tint unless we luvp thp humble and conlldlng
spirit of a little child wc cannot enter into the
kingdom of fiod.
Tin: kixhpou' Di:mr.r.
Tie kingdom of God''' and "dip kingdom of
lipaien" aie familiar words, and they are used
er.v oflrn by the Inspired writers. They fell
cry ftequently from Christ's own lips. They
me nornlw.ijs wed In the rntne inse, but the
ronlcvt khow-s their meaning: (a) Ily "the king
dom of heaicn" Is sometimes meant the Christian
dlpenFatlon. Thus, when John tin- !laj,lit be
gan his mlnlstr, he (ilil: "hVpent, for the
kingdom of lieawu is at hand." In the samo
srn.p our fiord at tho beginning ot Ills ministry
used the nine words, (b) Sometimes "the king
dom of fiod" means the ilsible church, as for
example, in the parables of the net, and of the
fares. As Judas crept in anions Christ's true
disciples, so hjpoerites, now and then, lnve
managed lo get inlo tho bible church, and
tares are found anions tlio wheat, (c) Again,
"lli kingdom of Hod" sometimes means the em
pire of grace In Hip heart pi a Christian. When
the I'hari.ees asked Christ to tell them when the
kingdom of God should come he slid: "The
kingdom cf Ood cometli not with observation,
for behold the kingdom of fiod Ls within you,"
St. Paul uses the words in flip same sense when
lip ajs: "The kingdom of fiod Is. not meal and
drink, but lighteoiiines', and peace, and Joy In
thp Hoi f.liost." fel) Again, "Hip kingdom of
Cod" ! u-pil is a sinonjm for the kingdom of
glory that place and state which fhrl.t hn
gone to pi i parr for Ills redeemed followers. To
all uih, he will say by and by: "Come e
blev-ed of my rather, inherit the kingdom pre
plied for you, from the foundation of the world "
fe) It is only fair to say that some elevout
Christiana think and teuh that "the kingdom
of f,od" sometimes means an earth! and xlsihle
kingdom, like unto thai over which llaiid and
Solomon reigned; but which, when It shall be
established, will hue Christ for Its King, and
our which he will lelgn for a tlinunml sears,
i hoe Christian tiiends hap this idea of ( hrist's
kingdom cliletlv in Uew when thty praj : 'Thy
Hut as some of us re id the nible, this 'nr of
God's kingdom seems, at best, to be onlj a pious
sppiulallon. It Ins for Us foundation the poetry
of piophcij, and some line figiues of speech
which Ihe-p good friends intcrpict altogether too
lllerallj. This is tlio view of Messhh's kingdom
10 wlili h titc Jews clung o lenaeiouslv, and to
which the Apostbsnnd some prlniilbe ( hrisliins
also iliing. unlit the wete more fully cullght
Minl by the Holy Sphlt. Hence the Apo.lles
asked tliP risen t lirist this question: "lord, wilt
thou nl thij HniP lejtore again Hie kingdom to
liuel?" In their case the nl.li was father to
the thought, and whether tills xlcw- of God's
kingdom be Hue or false. It is one which the
gieat bodv nf I lirl'll.lli teiehers and pupils have
nol been willing lo adopt:
Oim OIIIKF WMI.
When we praj "Thv kingdom come." what Is
11 preriseb that wp wish God to do' It ii our
wish tint the temple and city of Jerusilnn mav
soon be re-built, and that Jesus CluUt may come
luek to this earth and literally occupy the
tlirun of Hat. Ill, so that from that central point
He ma.v rula in a trmporal way our the whole
world? There nip not many of it, I imagine,
who lime that idea and wish in mind when we
pray: 'Thy kingdom come." RjHier hase we in
mind the laiger Increase and wider Influence of
Christ's church; the spiead of Christ' gospel;
the spiritual and righteous authority which lie
hhould cxeri'Ise over all mankind; we are think
ing not so much of any tlslble or tempered
lelgn of Jesus Christ as we ate of that "king
dom" which "Is not meal and drink-, but right
roiitncsa, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost",
wp arp thinking of that glorious time when, be
fore an assembled unberse, He will be crowned
"King of Kings and Lord of I,oids."
Hut frc.in wlnteur point of view- we look at
this phra.p, "tlio kingdom of God" -whether
we think of it as goi-pcl dispensation, or as the
enipiie of grace in a Christian's heart, or as the
vislblp Church nf Clubt, or as the Imlsible
church, or as the licat.ru of the hoi It ttu
"the kingdom ot fiod," Hie same kingdom onlv
uniltr illticrrtit a.peots. And when we piaj
"lliy kingdom tome," It is our wish tint
s-alan's kingdom may be de.trojed, and that
the kingdom of grace may lie advanced, mid Hut
Into this kingdom of grace otireelrrs and others
may be biought and kept, and that the kingdom
of gloiy miy lio hastened.
