Initial Easter Message of Pope Plea for Re-establishinent of Peaee t'unnr 6f worse ills eems t0 reign ih many regions: spirits are gripped with tniety and dismay almost as though all were an the eve of worse dayS. Trauquility. All this is veiny far from that serene and sure "tranqUility with order" which constituteg trlie peace. And how may full and true peace be had while even sons of the same land, frequently forget- ful of their common origin and common fatherland, are so pro- foundly divided by a burning and implacable struggle between par- ties and interests? How may peace be had while so many thousands of men lack work --hOnest x'vOrk which not only maintains life for intllvidual and their families but represents, fur- therth0re, a fiecessary and decor- ous eRplanati0n 6f the cotlex eh- ergies nature has exercised, study of which has endowed and hn0red the digiity of the human person? Misery, ;ho does not see that in such manner eaorm0us masses are be- ing formed which impoverishment and misery--so much more exas- perating because in strident con, trust with the luxury and excessive comforts of those privileged ones who do not feel the duty Of help- ing Suffering--render easy prey to i deeeptive mirages insiduously pro- i posed by shrews and promuiga- tors of destruCtiVe theories? How may peace be had if, un- fortunately, even among flattens there frequently is lacking the mutual comprehesi0n which alone i may encourage and impel pe0pies along luminous ways of civil prOgress, While pacts solemnly sanctioned and the plighted Word have lost that security and value which are indispensable bases of reciprocal confidence and qthout which ardently-desired disarma- ment, material and moral, becomes with each passing day less possi- ble of realization? be born that saiutory institution which gives back to the s)trit the grace of ttlunph Of life over the blow Which is death. TO this inexhaustible fount of [ardon and Of peace, the church in the holy days of laster calls its sons With paternal insistence. If all would accept the loving invite, tion there would thus come about an extremely long and flourishing blossoming of new life in Christ with ineffable enjoyment of that extremely-sweet peace which gives the soul dominion over passion in loving and perfect obedience to the Lord. "Orderly, 't ""DO you Wish your Soul," asks Saint Augustine, "to conquer over your passions? Submit to Hini who is On high and you will conquer all that here belOW. And peac Will be in you: True, sure, extremely Orderly. What is the order of this peace? God commands the spirit: The Spirit the body. NOthing is more Orderly. Here then, venerable brothers and beloved sons, is a basis unique and Unshakable upon .which true peace rests: God; God, known, re- spected, obeyed. "Rest and Surety" ' To diminish or destroy this obedience to the Divine Creator is the same as disturbing or complete- ly destroying pece in the individU- al as in the family; in various na- tions of the entire world only God, in fact, "speaks of peace for His people, for His faithful and for who shall turn his heart to Him." Only the gaze of the Omnipotent --Supreme Teacher of Justice and Supreme Giver of Peace--"justice and peace embrace" becauSb as the prophet Isaiah sings: "The work Of justice shall be peace and the ef- fect of JUstice Shall be rest and surety for ever." Just as, in fact, there can he no peace without oi'der so there can be no order without justice. QUALITY at LOW PRICE Phone Main 3011 ROCKFORD  "His Peace," "SeePed Rights." Fr.

On Feb. 3, 1936 nearly a century after his birth, a United States transport was sent, at the request of the Beigian government to that tiny spot in mid-Pacific; to bring, with "all the pomp and circumstance," the body of this same humble Flemish missionary, Who, willingly, "shut With his own hand the door but where to find one!"

On March 19, 1863, the Young sem- Inarian arrlved at Honolulu and in a few months was ordained by Bishop Maigret. Then he began his work of evangelization. F0r nine years this apostolate continued while each year found Father Damien more cognizant of the stealthy and deadly disease which stalked through this flower- strewn island--lelroSy. In 1865 the government awoke to the danger and issued the coldly official de- cree which read: " . . . All lepers are required to report themselves to the GOvernment health office within 14 days from this date for inspection and final banishment to Molokai." Needless to say' mey unfcrtunate victims of the disease, dreadIlg their life of isolation, htcl in the forests Or caves of the is- lands, but in 1873 a leper hunt as instigated and hundreds were se't to the laaretto.
