A Roman Catholic Priest

MARTIN BOOS was a Romanist.   In the discharge
        of his office as a priest he went, in 1789, to visit a
woman distinguished by her humility and piety, who was
dangerously ill.   "I do not doubt," said Boos, endeavour-
ing to prepare her for death, "that you die calmly and
happily."
  "And why?" said the woman.   "Because,"
replied Boos, "your life has been a continued chain of
good actions."

   The woman smiled and said, "If I were to die relying
for my salvation on the works which you mention, I am
certain that I should be condemned; but that which makes
me calm at this awful moment is that I rely on Jesus
Christ my Saviour."

   "Those few words," said Boos afterwards, "in the
mouth of a dying woman who was looked upon as a saint,
opened my eyes for the first time.   I understood the
meaning of 'Christ for us;' like Abraham, I saw His day.
From that time I announced to others the Saviour whom
I had learned to know, and there were many who rejoiced
with me."

   He was used of God as the instrument of a religious
awakening, and his labours were blessed in an extra-
ordinary manner.   After a long life of much usefulness,
when he felt the end drawing hear, he wrote: "Even now
I feel that none shall see the Lord without having washed
his robes in the Blood of the Lamb."
