Main Main 2100 ROCKFORD, ILL. McAllister- Julian FUNERAL DIRECTORS 304 No. Fifth St. RoekforO this solemn ceremony. St. Clare, daughter of a noble family of Assist, was born July ]6, 1194. From her earliest youth it was her most ardent desire to have no other spouse but Jesus Crucified. Hearing of St. Francis who at that time was an exaraple of perfection to the whole city, she went to him for instruction and advice. He spoke to her so fer- vently of the contempt of the: world, the shortness of life ;nd of loving God above all things, that she conceived the desire of re- nouncing all. St. Francis appoint- ed Palm Sunday, March 19, 1212 as the day she should carry out her desire. On that memorable day, Clare, richly dressed and adorned, accompanied her motl,er and family to the Divine Service. but when all went up to the altar to receive a palm branch, modesty kept her back in her place Seeing this the prelate, urged hy divine inspiration, left his place and ap- proaching placed a palm in her hand, a symbol of the victory she was about to gain over the world. Clare with other noble ladies Look part in the mournful triumph of ti:e day. But there was joy in her sorrow for the hour of her release from all earthly ties and fears wa nearing, and she would soon be the spouse of Jesus Christ.

Here St. Francis and hi brethren met and with lighted ta- pers conducted her to the altar of Mary Immaculate, where after a touching exhortation to the young :bride of Jesus Crucified, she laid aside her sumptuous robes and was clothed with the poor hal)it and cord of his order. Then in the hands of her saintly Father she pronounced the solemn vows of religion. The Poor Clares date the fouuda- tion of their order from this epoch. Soon after St. Francis placed her i in the convent of St. Damian's. Here in this quiet, secluded spot this heroic virgin of 18 yea,, be- gan her life of sacrifice and prayer. - Her admirable love of poverty, which caused her to ask and ob- tain from the Holy See for her order the hitherto unheard of and unasked for privilege of perfect poverty was equalled only by her extraordinary austerities, self-sac- rifice and devotion to the bitter passion and the Blessed Sacra- ] mont. [ Saved From Barbarians A remarkable instance is men- tioned in her life. Barbar 's Sa- racens came to plunder the city o[ Assasi, and first azsaulted St. Da- mien's, which stood outside the alls. The terrified nuns ran. trem- bling to their beloved mother, who had long lain on a bed of painful sickness. Her holy zeal for the di- vine honor, and her maternal hear t aroused her courage. She had her. self carried to the church, and there after a short prayer arose with supernatural strength and proceeded to a window of the con- vent--but not alone. She bore with her her Eucharistic God. Placing the monstrance in the very sight of the enemies she prayed with [many tears for deliverance. At the ]]end of her prayer sh seemed to [[hear a sweet voice saying: "Ego lives semper custodian" (I will al- l[ways protect you). At the same [[time a sudden terror seized the ][assailants, and they fled panic tricken. After many years of patient suf- 'ering the day of her death, or rather triumph, approached. A few hours before this blessed moment Mary, the Queen of Virgins, a peared and tenderly embracing her dying child, threw a royal mantle over her coarse habit. St. Clare's holy death occurred Aug. 11, 1253. Two years later her name was enrolled in the catalogue of the saints. New M.M. Bishop For the second time within ten days the Holy Father has appoint- ed a Ma,knoll missioner Vicar Apostolic in the mission field. The Roy. James F.

(1643-1715) was in many ways the greatest of French kings. But he had a mentality which foreshadowed that of "some modern dictators. Like them he wanted to control the Church as well as the State. Under him devel- oped the movement called Gallicanism, i. e., a Church which was free from Rome, national rather than Catholic, taking its name from "Gallic," the Latin word for France. The Popes fought this heresy, but in the meantime religion suf- fered much from Royal domination. Gal- licianism spread to other countries, nots. bly Austria, where its baneful iufluence was felt for centuries. In Catholic lands, the Church, under saintly leaders, became much stronger after the attacks of the Reformation. St. Charles Borromeo reformed the Church in Northern Italy. In France we have St. Francis de Sales (1567-1622), Bishop of Geneva, model Christian gentleman and patron of the Catholic Press (above). This saint, relying on kindness rather than bitter controversy, converted thousands of Calvinists. He is given credit with reviving devotion among the laity. A little before his time St. Philip Neri, also a. gentle and cheerful saint, revived Christian devotion in Rome. re. Events il Algonquin Aug.

RATIONALISM Men were taught by Protestant.lain to deny the AUTHORITY of the Cimrch. They were encouraged to zork out their own beliefs by studying the Bible and interpreting it according to private judg- ment. As a result many contradictory doctrines were taught under the name of Christianity. A few philosophers in England finally suggested doing away with revelation altogether, discarding the Bible. relying on unaided human rea- son. This was RATIONALISM. It spread rapidly to France, Germany, and other countries, and was always distin- guished by bitter anti-Catholicism.

Pope Again Called Apostle of Peace AL "MOOSE" SCHRAMM; As predicted by this column last xeek, Alphonse "Moose" Schramm former Aqutn high school athelete and recent graduate of Loras cot legs, has been appointed assista.,t coach at Loras. Alphonse who starred at Aquiu iL football and basketball from 1930 to 1934 later showed his athletic ability as a member of the Duhawk squads. In football "Moose", whB played the tackle position, proved many times the main cog in a Loras conquest. His drive and stamina proved invaluable to the Dohawk line-up. Basketball, an- other field in which the Freeporter as outstanding, is another reason why he holds his present positlcn.

Sydney Vooderson. the fleet- footed Englishman who ran a mis- erable fifth in the Princeton Mile, had to withdraw from racing for the rest of the season due to a: torn leg, muscle. The English flash who holds the worlds record for the mile, 4:06.4, deeply regretted the fact because he wanted to preys to America that he was a "racer" as well as a "runner". It looks very likely that World Series headlines ill read "Reds versus Yanks". The Reds, Who are far out in front in the Senior league THE and seem to be climbing the pen- nant ladder, Wtll undoubtedly meet the mighty Yanks in -hat we hope will be a different sort of V, rorld Series.

Mission Work the Goal Always, however, te call to mis- sion work persisted in the ears and heart of the Saint, and as Father Hughes, O.P., wrote some years ago, "Dominic was first and foremost a foreign missionary." To his spiritual sons and daughters he expressed the wish that they should "go to the pagans to en- lighten them with the light of the Gospel and to bring them to the knowledge of the true God." How well his commission was carried ont may be understood from a brief perusal of the history of the Catho- lic church during the past seven centuries. St. Dominic built well the struc- ture of his great missionary order and countless millions have learn- ed to rejoice In the results of his zeah The Orient, the Near East. Africa, and North and South Amer- ica have listened to the doctrines Growth of Rationalism THE FRENCH REVOLUTION Finally Rationalism bore fruit in ths excesses of the French Revolution of 1789. In that year the representatives of the French people gathered to correct some of the undoubted abuses which existed in that country. The parish priests, the so-called "lower clergy," were all in favor of reform. But in time the French Revolution passed under the control of rabid extremists, who insti- tuted reigns of terror. They forgot the liberalism of the Catholic clergy and killed literally thousands for their be- liefs. They also took away the liberty of the Church, a liberty which the Church in France has not fully recovered until this day. there will be an exceptionally large attendance. Students who grad- uated at the end of this year have all found employment in the var- ious professions for which they qualified." (Fides).

The first native Chinese priest, who became the first native Chinese bishop, was a Dominican. Dominican priests, nuns and tertiaries in the thousands have shed their blood for the Faith. Dominicans today are carrying on the same work in far-flung mission fields. Let us have recourse, then, to this great Saint on his feastday, Aug. 4, that the fire of his zeal may continue to burn brightly in the hearts of all those who love the missions.
