12A OUR SUNDAY VISITOR The Observer Edition January ~, 1952 Of Chair For Indo-China St. Vincent's Jottings All at St. Vincent's have had many reasons to rejoice in the Happy and Holy Season of Christ- mas. Among the blessings re- ceived is counted a letter. Per- haps you, too, would like to read it. The children of whom the moth- er speaks were placed in our care when the father entered service. He is now stationed in England. The mother and the children have gone to join him. She writes: "Imagine by now you're wonder- ing whether you'll ever hear from me. Really I meant to write be- fore I left home and also as soon as we landed but I'm sure you will understand that I've been terribly busy. We do remember the Priests, the Sisters and all the ~eople at St. Vincent's and St. oseph's in our prayers each night. "We left Woodstock on Novem- ber 4th and went to Fort Hamilton, Brooklyn, by way of Cincinnati and Philadelphia where we stopped off to see some of my friends. We reported at Fort Hamilton on No- vember 12th where we were pro- cessed through and left from Sta- ten Island on November 15th by ship, the U.S.N.S. Darby. I've an: closed a picture of the ship. It was a beautiful ship---theY had a playground on the sun deck for the children, including merry-go-round, swings and a slide, so the children played while their mothers sat in deck chairs. We had a grand cross- tng with only two days of rough weather--for the most part the sun was shining and we were able to be out on deck with just a light sweater. In the morning there were movies for the children and again at 2:00 in the afternoon. "Tell Sister Ositha and Sister Inez they would be very proud of ingwhenwe arrived which is quite natural for this section. It rains about four days out of a week. "Dorothy Ann was quite sick the morning after we got home here. It was just a cold but she ran a high fever. You see, the house we rent was very damp and for several days with just two fireplaces we could not get warm. At any rate, both the children's colds have cleared up and they are getting used to the weather, in fact, they never complain about being cold. We live about a mile and a half from the Burtonwood base but it only takes about ten or fifteen minutes by bus. What's much harder is getting around on the base. It is really massive. I have no idea how much ground it covers but for example it takes me twenty minutes to get from the gate, where I enter the base, to the commissary by bus. We have two years and two months to stay here so we have intentions of buying a car as soon as we can afford it. "Where we live is a very small town and the people are very friendly. I never go out but what someone talks to me. Tom and I have gone out several times in the past two weeks and have had someone stay with the children. We have no trouble with the children being afraid to stay. They also get along beautifully with the children in the neighborhood, three of whom have come in to play ev- cry day for the past four days. "I think coming over here was the wisest decision I have ever made. Tom has been very good to us and seems to be very happy. I know the children are very happy to be with both Mommie and Dad- dy and I can ask for no more. Ev- ery night Tom and I both tuck: the children in bed. "Right now we are concentrating on a lovely Christmas for the chil- dren, with a tree, and they are .hrilled with being able to hang their stockings by a real fireplace. We will send you some pictures as we go along these next two years. So far I've been going to Mass on the base but there is also a church here in town that we can go to. They are having Midnight Mass here at St. Joseph's, which is the church in town, so we'll go there. "Remember me to all the Sisters and all the other people I know at St. Vincent's and St. Joseph's. I am very happy but I do miss you all. I have a list of, I believe i sixteen Sisters to whom I intend writing individual letters. In the meantime I'll ask you to relate the news to them and wish everyone there a Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from our fam- ily and may God bless you all." Sunday, Jan. 6, in the Parochial Basketball league at St. Vincent's gym, St. Thomas Aquinas plays Immanuel Lutheran at 2 p.m.; St. Mary's plays St. Vincent's at 3 p.m. .Y Detailed Continued from page 1A Catholic Church. This unique type of reception was made possible through the gracious concession of Blessed Pope Plus X, who had him- self followed the development of the community with great interest and prayed for its conversion. The same Pope. also gave his approval and blessing on the work of pro- moting the Chair of Unity Octave. This has been repeated by all the Popes who have succeeded him. The accommodation of the scrip- tural event which Father Paul made concerning Anglicanism has a far wider application than he gave it at the time. The whole world outside the Catholic Church is involved in a functional paralysis; it lies helpless at the gate of the Temple of God. Most Rev.

The only hope there is for the cure of the ills of the lame world is for it to turn its gaze on Peter in the person of his successor. If it would permit Peter to grasp it by the right hand, its feet and ankles will become strong, its limbs will flex with a newly found Represented At Vatican Continued from page 1A legation to the status of an em- bassy and the first ambassador of that country will soon present his credentials.) The 24 legations are listed as follows: Austria, Czechoslovakia, Costa Rica, Britain, Egypt, El Salvador, Finland, Guatemala, Holland, Honduras, India, Indo- nesia, Lebanon, Liberia, Lithuania, Order of Malta, Monaco, Nicar- agua, Pakistan, Panama, Rumania, San Marine, Uruguay and Yugos- lavia. Of the legations, three are at the present time without a titular head: Guatemala, Honduras and Yugoslavia, while two are in a suspended status: those of Czecho- slovakia and Rumania.

In order to have the health-giving touch of Peter, it must renounce the foul broth of lust and the rubber crutch of pride; it cannot have these and the friendship of God as well. Only the friends of Christ can walk and i leap into the temple of God, be- cause it is in His name alone that a cure is given. This is the aim of the Chair of Unity Octave; to get the world t fix its gaze on the Vicar of Christ. The means it employs is primarily prayer. In his most re- cent encyclical, Sempiternus Rex, the Supreme Pontiff gives much encouragement in the following words: "We also know that if those who pray, united as in battle array, are filled with the fervor of a con- fident faith and a clear conscience, the power of prayer is great enough to pick up a mountain and cast it into the sea. We greatly desire, then, that all who have at heart this earnest call to embrace Christian unity--let no one who is of Christ esteem this lightly--may pour out prayers and entreaties to God, the Author of order, unity, and beauty, that the laudable wish- es of all good men may be fulfilled as soon as possible."

This was a bad thing to do because then they wanted to go down off the ship right away and they couldn't understand whf they wouldn't let us off right then. Dickie cried and cried, in fact all the children were the same way---they wanted to go to Daddy. We were some of the first ones to debark though, so it wasn't too bad. By the way, I thought I was taking on a great responsibility traveling with two children. I really had nothing compared with some who had four and even a few mothers with five children. "We stayed in a hotel at South- ampton the first night because coming way up here would have meant traveling on the train all night. We left by train on Satur- day morning and arrived here in Penketh, near Warrington about 6:00 v.m. that night. It was rain stadium. Women's College To Open February I! San Diego, Calif. --(NC)-- The San Diego College for Women, first unit of the University of San Diego, will open February 11, it has been announced here by Bishop Charles F. Buddy of San Diego, founder of the university. Registration of students will take place February 9. The college will be conducted by the Religious of the Sacred Heart, with Mother Rosalie Hill as president. Classes~ will be opened formally with a Solemn Pontifical Mass of the Holy Ghost offered by Bishop Buddy, who also will deliver the opemng address. Milwaukee---(NC)--It is impos- sible to work out any sort of pro- gram for genuine social progress without satisfying man's religious needs, writes His Eminence Samu- el Cardinal Stritch, Archbishop of Chicago, in the foreword of a new book The Sociology of the Parish, just published by the Bruce Pub- lishing Company here. The book is a sociological sur- vey to which outstanding authori- ties in this field of learning have contributed twelve chapters. It. was edited by C. J. Nuesse and the Rev. Thomas Harte, C.Ss. R., of the Sociology Department of Catholic University. The articles show how the Church's unchanging mission of sanctifying and saving souls oper- ates through the social concerns of everyday life, and contain an an- alysis of the social structure of parishes, social research in par- ishes, the parish census and sur- vey. "Most of the sociological studies of our time," Cardinal Stritch points out, "fail to grasp the im- portance of religion in society. When we take merely a humanistic or a naturalistic concept of man or try to work out social pro- gralns on this concept we always end in failure." IN SEARCH OF FINE RESTAURANTS?
