Reservations Home Sweet Home Who Can Concentrate? By Nellie Hughes l I hadn't realized it before, butl the devil must be a pretty faith— ful attendant at Mass. When I am sitting in a darken- ed movie theater, do I notice my neighbor’s hat? Nope —— only when it's blocking my View of the screen. In a movie, the peo- ple in front of me could have two heads and I would not notice this abnormality unless said heads were blocking my View. Can I concentrate so single- mindedly in church during Mass? Not on your life. Within those hallowed walls, thanks to the; devil’s distractions, my thought processes run something like this: Try To Pray “I will go to the altar of God . . . good Lord, does Peg always have to pick such zany hats? Can’t her husband stop her? And with her nose, too! To God, the joy of my youth. Honestly. now you would think even a father would have sense enough to sep- arate those two imps. How can anybody concentrate with two kindergarten escapees pummel- ling each other? Trust in God, for I shall yet praise Him. Some distractions are unavoid— able, even for the most saintly, and these I will not blame the devil for. Stray Dog l A stray dog comes wandering in to pay his Sunday respects, which always causes a little stir of excitement, especially among the children who own the beast. Strings of beads, if they are .subject to breakage, usually do may still be made by calling Mrs. Lawrence Basista. Plan Retreat GALENA—St. Michael church will be the site for the annual retreat for members Of Court Isabell, No. 572 of the Catholic Daughters of America. on Sun- day, June 11 from 1 to 4 p.m. The Rev. Paul Barrett, 0.13., St. Rose Priory, Dubuque, will be retreat master. All mem- bers and ladies from the neigh- borhood parishes are invited to attend. A * ‘A’ nual May breakfast May 21 fol- lowing the 8 a.m. Mass; The Rev. Paul Tuchlinsky, pastor of St. Mary parish, Galena, was guest of honor and spoke at the breakfast which was prepared by the Altar and Rosary society. Junior Catholic daughters serv» ed. Mrs. Orville Kopp, lecturer, was mistress of ceremonies. Vocal selections were sung by Cynthia Keller, Susan Spronle and Mary Lou Kopp, Jr. CDA Court Isabella held their an~. 1so during Mass. (Do you pick up the beads rolling your way, or don’t you?) Toddlers fall out of pews on their heads, and howl like ban- charm bracelet who does her mea culpa musically; '. Children’s Shenanigans The small boy holding his prayer book upside down while he frowns at the pages and moves his lip; The unbu'ttoned button on that blouse: and The fly walking sticky-legged all over that bald spot two rows ahead. Perhaps some bright manufac— turer will produce the modern version of the blinders horses used to wear. \ Trouble is, even with my eyes closed, my wandering mind can furnish its own distractions: Maybe the devil is in me, not beside me . . On Dean’s List WASHINGTON, D. C.—Kath- leen Thomas, daughter of Mr and Mrs. Matthew J. Thoma. Rockford, has been named to the Dean's list at the Catholic University of America h e r 6.

Devil’s Distractions These are not the devils dis— tractions. The D.D.’s are the things I would not notice were I able to concentrate in true medi- tative fashion. Under the devil’s handiwork come items like the following: . The little boy in the pew ahea ,who has his shoes on the wrong feet: The anxious little girl who ‘drops her pennies before the col. llection basket reaches her; The moppet who drops her well—sucked mint into the collec- tion basket—and then tries fran- tically to retrieve it: The girl with the jingly-jangl CUSTOM-TAILORED SUITS.
