I. TKCE life of great and good women is a most attrac tive study. It is often the case that real life offers more interest than any romance, and while speaking to the imagination, the actions of a woman who has devoted herself to the service of God and the care of the poor, may teach us a lesson of courage, perseverance, and patience, which the greatest preacher could not hope to impress on our minds. There are so many ways of doing good The variety of Gods servants is as great in the spiritual world as the infinite variety of blossoms and flowers that spread out and beautify this mortal world of ours. Among the many noble-hearted servants of God one feels the better for getting to know, I cannot help thinking that Mother Margaret Mary Hallahan, the foundress of the English congregationof St. Catherine of Siena, exercises a wholesome effect in rousing us out of our sluggish ways, by the example of what a poor, ignorant Irish servant maid was able to achieve without human help, and by the mere force of wishing to serve God, to please God, to forget self in the love of God. The Life of Mother Margaret Mary Hallahan by her religious children London Longmans, Green, 1869, is an inspiring one, and adds to the number of great women, whose example is an encouragement in hours of gloom and an incentive to new efforts, i 2 UNSEEN FRIENDS Margaret Hallahan never saw the shores of Ire land. But it may be a matter of pride to us in Ireland that this servant of God was born of Irish parents. We will see in her life many reasons to remember her Irish blood. In her virtues and in her failings, she was very Irish, very impetuous, very strong-willed, very pure minded, and with a cheerful courage that nothing could daunt. Margaret Hallahan was born in London on 23 January, 1803. Her father belonged to a respectable family, but had met with misfortunes, and towards the end of his life worked as a labourer to maintain his wife and little daughter. His wife Catherine OConnor, by birth was a pious woman. Margaret was an only child and greatly petted by her-father. Her mother was sterner, and when her little daughter expressed her religious feeling with childish impetuosity prostrating and putting her forehead to the ground in prayer, she would remind her that little saints make big sinners . Poverty had embittered Margarets father, and there were painful scenes between her parents, which inspired her with a dread of matrimony, which she never afterwards lost. She went to a school atSomerstown kept by a French priest, the Abb6 Caron. She attended as a day scholar, and one of her earliest recollections was the affection with which her father was accustomed to meet her on her return from school, always bringing her a little cake, or some similar present . She was eight years old when the jubilee of King George III was celebrated. St. Jamess Palace was thrown open to the public on that day, and Margarets parents took her to see it. The state apartments did not appeal to the little girls mind... UJNSEEN FRIENDS BY MRS.
