CARDINAL WISEMAN'S PASTORAL. The following is the Pastoral Letter of H. E. the Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster, 1864. Nicholas, by the Divine Mercy, of the Holy Roman Church, of the title of St. Pudentiana Cardinal Priest, and Arch. bishop of Westminster. To our dearly beloved brethren and children in Christ, the clergy secular and regular, and the faithful of the said diocese. Health and benediction in the Lord. Dearly beloved In Christ,—It has pleased Divine Pro- vidence to anticipate our prayers and desires, by the birth, almost unexpected, of a child, granted to the Heir Apparent of the Crown and so destined, in the order of nature, to occupy, we hope at a yet distant period, the throne of this realm. An interval of anxious suspense has been thus cut short; while the assurance, from day to day, that nothing has occurred to lessen the first joy, this event has completed the happy inauguration of the new year. To the continuance of heavenly favour which has hitherto pro- tected them, we fervently commend both mother and child. And we earnestly pray that He who, at this season, would receive his birthday offerings, however regal, only from the hands of the wise, will infuse into the heart of the Royal infant that truest wisdom which Solomon "preferred before kingdoms and thrones," together with which all good things," as well as innumerable riches," came into his possession. (Wisd. vii. 9) But we feel sure that, while praying for the speedy and complete re- storation to health of the Princess mother, that she may be as a fruitful vine on the sides of the Royal hotife" (Ps. exxvii. 3),yoawtll turn your thoughts and sympathies towards one still more august, who, after her, has here a larger claim than any one else to maternal joys, and who, after a long period of faithful mourning, may perhaps ex- clam. as did Lamech on the birth of Noe This child shall comfort ns" (Gen. v. 22). Although so soon as these happy tidings of God's merciful dealings with the nation reached us, we ordered that thanksgivings should be publicly offered up in our pro-cathedral, which was done on Sunday last, we feel this to be an occasion for a more general expression of gratitude, and therefore hereby enjoin that the Tc Deum, with its versicles and prayers, be sung in every public church and chapel under our jurisdiction, after high mass, and at benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament, on Sunday next, the feast of the holy name of Jesus. Given in Westminster, on the octave day of the Epiphany, MDCCCLXIV. and ordered to be read at each mass on the said Sunday.—N. CARD. WISEMAN. F. CANNON SKARLK, Secretary. T
