Sunday, October 24, 1943 ir i Pope Plus Urges Study Of Scriptures As Remedy For Evils Of The Times Latest Encyclical Calls On Faithful To Read And Meditate On Bible, Especially The Gospels Vatican City, Oct. 18.--(NC)--In his latest Encyclical Letter, "Divine Afflante Spiritu," issued in recent days, His Holiness Pope Plus XII exhorts all the faithful to more diligent reading and meditation on the Scriptures, especially the Gospels, as a remedy for the evils of the times, it is noted here with special interest. In the conclusion of the Encyc- lical, it is emphasized, the Holy Father points out that in the Gos- pels we find the perfect model of justice, charity and mercy--Jesus Christ, Our Head, Who throws over us a fountain of grace which, if neglected, peoples and their rt, l- ers will be unable to lay the bases either of national tranquility or concord of minds. "What We have been saying, Venerable Brothers and Beloved Sons," the Holy Father writes in his Encyclical, "if it holds true for every age, is yet much more adapt- ed to our sad times. For in them almost all peoples and nations are immersed in a sea of evils; dread- ful wa heaps ruins upon ruins, slaughter on slaughter, and excites bitterest hatreds between peoples. To Our greatest grief, We see ex- tinguished in not a few every sense not only of moderation and Christian charity but even of hu- manity. "For these mortal wounds of hu- man society who can bring the remedy save Him to Whom the Prince of the Apostles addressed the words: 'Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.' To this, Our Most Merciful Redeemer, we ought with our whole energy to lead back all men. He is the Divine Consoler of the Afflicted, Who teaches all rulers and subjects true right- eousness, unimpeachable justice and generous charity, He Who alone can be the stable foundation and support of peace and tran- quility. 'For other foundation no man can lay, but that which is laid; which is Christ Jesus.' "Of this Author of Salvation Who is Christ, men will enjoy full- er knowledge. For Him they'll conceive more ardent love, and they will more faithfully initiate His examples, more devoutly apply themselves to know and meditate on the Sacred Scriptures, and chiefly the New Testament, for, as St. Jerome says: 'To ignore the Scriptures is to ignore Christ.' 'If there is anything,' says the Saint, 'which sustains a wise man in times of strife and amid disaster" and upsets in the world, helps him to persevere in serenity of mind, it is in the first place, I consider, HOUSE o[ LINDBERG Fine Furniture, Rugs and Carpets Rockford-- Freeport00 Broadway & 8th Street Main & S.

"From them, in fact, whoever is beaten and oppressed by adversi- ties and misfortunes will draw comfort and superhuman strength ira suffer and endure patiently. In them, in the Holy Gospels, Christ is upheld before all as the Sup- reme and Perfect Model of Justice, Charity and Mercy; in them, for the whole of our anguished and: fearful human race, there are open- ed fountains of Divine Grace which, if they slight or neglect, peoples and their rulers can neith- er initiate nor consolidate national tranquility or concord of mind. In them, finally, all will learn to know Christ, 'Who is the head of all principality and power,' and 'Who of God is made unto us wisdom and justice and sanctification and re- demption.'" His Holiness then offers congrat- ulations and words of encourage- ment to Biblical students, called to such a sublime office---that of pene- trating the very Word of God and of explaining it to the faithful and defending it against the infidels.
