Sunday, March 80, 1947 THE OBSERVER EDITION OF OUR SUNDAY VISITOR News Section--Page 3 Muldoon Studentst[ Present 'The Seven Mirrors' Rockford.- In the Coronado theatre on Sunday, March 23, stu- dents of Muldoon high school pre- sented the pageant play, "The Seven Mirrors." Advocating toler- ance and faith, it was the story of seven madonnas in the present-day world. Choral numbers with selec- tions by the Muldoon high school band were interwoven with the dramatic performances. To a peasant home in Moscow, to a prom on an American school campus, to any Catholic home, to Lourdes, to Mexico, for a walk on State and Main streets in Rock- ford and to postwar United States the scenes of the play transported the audience. Perhaps most strik- ing was the scene in Moscow where parents attempted to convince a daughter that there is no God but the Madonna of Fatima saved the child's faith. A dance performed by those who had been recalled to the true faith gave evidence of the joy and happiness ill their hearts. Elaborate costumes were enhanced by the brilliant lighting of the stage. The Madonna-of Muldoon devel- oped the idea of woman's voca- tions. Madonna of the Rosary por- trayed the blessings derived from the devotion of the Family Rosary. The Madonna of Lourdes spoke of the meaning of faith, its depth and its strength. Other parts of the performance portrayed the Madon- na of Mexico, the Madonna of the Immaculate Heart and the Madon- na of the United States. The performance came to a close with the singing of the Salve Re- gina by the chorus of madonnas and the Muldoon vested choir.
