REV. MSGR. THOMAS S. GREEN Diocesan Director Society For The Propagation Of The Faith Pope John XXIII used this expression when speak- ing of the mission of the Church to the peoples of all nations and places. His Holiness was outlining the tremendous role of the Church in modern society. His Holiness spoke of the ancient origin of the Faith and yet its perennial youth. He stressed the un- diminishing vigor of the Faith in pursuing the pro- gram outlined by the Master Himself for the Re- demption of all men. The Church is alive because it is the Mystical Body of the Lord With Christ as the Head, all mem- bers in communication with the Head of the Body share in the Life of Grace made inevitable through union with the Redeemer. To share the Life of Christ is to be filled with a great zeal for the things of the Lord. To be Christ-like is indeed. TO TEACH THE IGNORANT; TO HEAL THE SICK; TO CLOTHE THE NAKED; TO HELP THE POOR AND THE LEPER; TO PROTECT THE INNOCENT AND THE AGED--IT IS IN A WORD: TO BE A MISSIONARY. As millions and millions of cells make up the human body, and yet are one despite their multiplic- ity, so all who are baptized in Christ are His One Body or His Church. As the body is governed by a visible head and presided over by an invisible mind, so too, the Mystical Body of the Church is presided over by a visible head who is the Vicar of Christ, the Holy :ather; and by an invisible Head Who is Christ in Heaven. As Our Blessed Lord through His physical body taught, governed and sanctified, so too, through His Mystical Body, He teaches, He governs and He sanctifies Because He teaches, the teaching is infallible; because He governs, the au- thority is Divine; because He sanctifies, holiness is truly imparted to our souls.

Brechon, (1) To care for our own physical bodies is a natural responsibility. To care for the Mystical Body of Christ in which we have membership is a superna- tural obligation. Through the SOCIETY FOR THE PROPAGATION OF THE FAITH, by prayer and sacrifice, this responsibility to the Universal Church finds a practical and valid fulfillment. Limited as we might be in, ability to do great things for Christ and the Church, we serve the cause of the Vicar of Christ very effectively through PERPETUAL ENROLLMENT IN THE PROPAGATION OF THE FAITH. |111 iiiii Ull ul i ii Ul ig iii iiii ii u !
