MARRIAGE WITH A DECEASED WIFE'S SISTER. The following letter has been written by Cardinal Manning to the Very Rev. Canon Gilbert D.D., Vicar-General of the (R.C.) Archdiocese of Westmin- Rev. and Dear Vicar-General,-Some years ago the bishops laid before Lord Chelmsford's Commission on the Marriage Laws certain points on which modula- tion would he desirable. One was for some provision by which the marriage with a deceased wife's sister, after a dispensation from the Holy See had been ob- tained might be legalized. These words of ours have been quoted by the promoters of such marriages as favourable to their views. Nothing was further from the intention of the bishops. 1.—The law of the Catholic Church forbids and annuls the marriage with a deceased wife's sister. 2.—The law of England on this point is to this moment Catholic, and supports the discipline of the Church. 3.—The Holy See can alone dispense in such cases, and it never dispenses, except (1) rarely, (2) with reluctance, and (3) for grave reasons and to avoid greater evils. 4. -To abolish the law which prohibits such marriages would have the effect of throwing open as lawful to everybody that which in few, rare, and exceptional cases is reluctantly given to avoid greater evils. 5.—And this throwing open of the civil law would encourage and multiply such marriages, in direct opposition to the discipline of the Catholic Church, and to the grave and dangerous disturbance of domestic life. Better far is it that a few cases should still suffer a legal hardship than that the home life of our whole commonwealth should be seriously endangered. I trust that all Catholics in either House of Parliament will vote firmly and always against such a change in the statute law. You may use this to satisfy any doubts as to the subject of it.
