They derive unquestionably straight from the Revelation of Christ whence they have been stolen. Thus Lilly is historically incontestable, when he affirms, "Lberty and Equality are strictly Christian ideas. Men who, in fact, are l not free, nor equal in rights, by birth, are, ac-i cording to the Catholic conception, invested with the attributes of freedom and equality by the faith of Christ. 'Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is Liberty.' 'There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female, for ye are all one in Christ'. 'Ye are all the childre nor God.' [St. Paul[. Hence results a theory of the sovereignty of the individual Christian and s6mething more indeed for priesthood is attributed to him as well as empire. He is held to be both a priest and a king [Alocalypse I, 5 and 6]." THE MOTHER OF MAJESTIC WORKS The Church is 'the great mother of majestic works.' "It was her task," observes that ripe scholar, William Samuel Lilly," to train the nas- cent nationalities of Europe, .and to inform them with a new spirit. To quote Taine's words, 'In a world founded on conquest, hard and cold as a machine of brass,' she taught the higher vir- tues whereby man erects himself above himself: patience, kindness, humility, self-sacrificing charity. She saved what could be saved of antique civilization, and she transformed it. Of course, the chief agents in this beneficent work were the monks. I need not dwell upon what is unfolded at length in Montalembert's brilliant pages, which merely invest hard facts with poe- tic glamour. It was around the monasteries that villages, towns, and cities grew up new cen- tres of agriculture and industry and population. To the monks we owe most of the institutions whereby we now live as civilized men. That is the debt of the modern world to them. The debt of the men of that far-off age was greater still. In a time when-brute force prevailed, it was their office and ministry 'to furnish man with in- ducements to live, or, at the very least, with the resignation which makes life endurable' ; to point to an existence beyond the present, where jus- refusal of the Ministry of Gobernacion to allow :,:: :i the Archbishop's body to be removed to the Cathedral Mexican officials, the paper stated * - were not oposed to the exhibition of bodies in the public streets--only recently the body of a Communist who had been killed in a brawl had been exhibited as though it were the "body of a hero"and yet it would prohibit the body of the Archbishop being given "posthumous trib- ute in the naves of the Metropolitan Cathedral which is legally open for public worship." Two days later the paper praised President I,azaro Cardenas for giving permission but neg- lected to state that the Diplomatic Corps had urged him to do so. Nevertheless this third editorial did state that "the most exalted Left- ists, who are atheists . . . have seen with their own eyes . . . an objective and indisputable evi- ':- deuce that the masses in Mexico are Catholic; <:" that all the anti-religious propaganda and |cone- :: " elastic furor have not served to extinguish the ancient beliefs beloved by the people, which con- ::i! stitute one of its most intimate forces and the ;:'- one most efficient for giving cohesion and physi- -ognomy to the country." It further stated that the attitude of perfect order and exemplary si- /::_ lence of the people during the funeral proces- sion "justified the sanctity of their request and ':: thesincerity of their faith." An article in Excelsior, written by Dr. Ramon k2:::.  Puente, a member of its staff, and titled "The ..Catholicism of Our Masses," declares that the ,:: death of Archbishop Diaz has convinced the :: : Country of one thing and that is that "the great L  mass of the Mexican people is Catholic, Catholic through tradition, through habit, through ignor- ii ! ance if you wish, but undeniably Catholic." " " La Prensa, nother newspaper, considers that ! - :: _ Archbishop Diaz died prematurely and attributes I !i=!i::: this fact to the anguish he suffered as head of .the Mexican Church, especially the molestations : and outrages inflicted by "the incompetent Senor Bojorquez when, through one of those aberra- tions of despotism, he functioned as Minister of Gobernacion." %;. , The Church is in the world as its befriending corrective opposite.--William Samuel Lilly. "Sixty years for an Indian," La Prensa em- phasizes, "Don Pascual was of pure blood, in the seminary they called him 'El Chamula' does not constitute 01d age." The Archbishop should have lived 20 years longer, the paper believes "had not the griefs, the persecutions, the peculi- arly futile pains and molestations to which he was subjected, destroyed his vitality and his rice should be rendered, where justice should be health." . requited, where Lazarus, after his evil things, i.

Syracuse Catholic  Sun. THE SCOTCH PARADOX The Scotch marriage rate was the highes within ten years in 1933, and its birth rate was the lowest that year. If we may take for grant- ed that the increase in the marriage rate was steady during th few ears previous to 193 and that the birth rate decline wa Likewise gradual, we must conclude that there is something wrong with the canny Scot. The people of Scotland are re- puted to be fundamentally religious though quite everely so. Are they letting, go of the Scriptures and be- coming affected with the virus of birth control poison from their selves with the thought that even large countries could be repeopled by the smaller nations which kept faith with Cd; so it is an occasion for added alarm when these smaller nations begi to decimate them- selves. Must Scotland turn to her Irish cousins to maintaiu the popu- lation of her banks and braes and highland? Apparently this is the case, for the immigration from Ire- land to Scotland has increased so much as to cause resentment on the part of the Scotch.--Catholic Herald- Cltlsen, Milwaukee, Wis.

Anent the growing custom among movie theater managers to give peo- ple all sorts of presents to induce their patronage, George Jessel re- cently appeared upo, u a stage in Is Angeles and, at the opening of his act, addressed the audience some- thing like this: "I really don't know just what to do to please you peo- ple. The management has you spoil- ed--it gives you candy while you're waiting in line to buy your tickets then it gives you groceries, china- ware, a big double show, bank night --I'll bet some of you are mad that you don't strike oil under your ; seats." : Girls, I'd Resent This Ad from an Iowa newspaper: "Wanted: Middle aged woman for Satesments of Recent to express the giving of the Holy (N.
