PASTORAL LETTER FROM CARDINAL MANNING. A pastoral letter from Cardinal Manning was read in the churches of the diocese of Westminster on Sunday, when a collection was made in each to defray the expenses of erecting new places of worship. Un the first day of May," his Eminence says, fI the new church of St. Mary's, Chelsea, was opened. The cost of the building, amounting to £9,000, has all been dis- charged, except about JS500. But for the self sacrifice of the rector of the mission this coald not have been done. When this small remaining sum has been de- frayed the church can be consecrated. The church of St. Patrick's in the Eaat will be opened, it is hoped, in the beginning of August. This church, which stands in the midst of some 3,000 of our poor, and in one of the worst parts of London, is the gift of one Catholic. It will be necessary to build a sacristy and a priest's house attached to the church, and for this help is asked. A new mission has been marked out for the district of Iimehouse, but as yet the clergy possess no means, either for the tize or for the building. There are other spots fixed for future missions, but of these we need not speak now. In building our churches the clergy have endeavoured so to construct them as that they shall be solid and spacious. The purpose has been to cover the largest apace with the means at com- mand. For this reason they have been designed with extreme simplicity. The first duty of the Church is to place an altar in the midst of every part of its flock; to make that altar as accessible aB possible, and to diminish the distance of the church from the homes ot the people. The aged, the infirm, and the children are unable to go far. To these distance is priva- tion. We have believed, therefore," the Cardinal adds, that our duty is to multiply the altars among our people. It will be for those who come after us to adorn them. In some cases it has been inevit- able that we should build in part with money borrowed and secured upon the building and the site. We would gladly avoid this course, but we had rather incur this inconvenience than leave thousands of souls without a church. It is, moreover, just that those who come after should bear a part of the burden. If those who now live provide two-thirds of the cost of building a new church, it is most just that the remaining third should be paid off by those who inherit B8 freely the church, with all its blessings, fer which in this day we have denied ourselves. One purpose, therefore, of this annual collection is to pay off gradually the remaining costs of building. Lastly, it must never be forgotten that as our churches multiply and as time goes on, the burden of repairs becomes heavier. In richer missions this can be easily met, but in poorer missions help from this fund is urgently needed."
