November 16 To 23 Is... O ir This week, Nov. 16 to 23, is Book Week throughout the United States and especially at St. Gregory's, Aurora. (For those who haven't made its acquaintance, St. Gregory's is a non-profit Catholic book shop and library at 75 S. Broadway in downtown Aurora; St. Gregory's is also a center for literature, greeting cards and reli- gious articles.) On the table a .dozen books are attractively dis- played. Their titles range from "The Silver Chalice" to "Your Teen Agers: How to Survive Them." The first is a "best seller," "The Silver Chalice," by Thomas Costain. This is a fictional narra- tive about the cup Christ used at the Last Supper and Basil the Silversmith's role in fashioning it, told with richly descriptive details. "Edith Stein," by Sister Teresia de Spiritu Sancta, is a modern martyr's life as Jewish scholar and teacher, convert and Carmelite nun. Edith Stein is seen through the eyes of childhood classmates, university students and friends, and nuns with whom she lived; in the last days she is described by fellow prisoners in the concentra- tion camp--her punishment by the Nazis for being a Jew, a Catholic and a Carmelite confessing Christ. The third book is entitled "One Sky To Share," by a Dominican, R. L. Bruckberger, who, with spec- ial permission as a chaplain in France, took up arms. In "Saints By ROSEMARY RAUSCH Luce, Whittaker Chambers sketches St. Benedict; Thomas Merton acquaints us with St. John of the Cross; St. Augustine, St. Thomas and the rest in this collection by numerous admirers can be seen as "Saints For Now." Also on display during Book Week is "The Book of The Saviour" assembled by Sheed and Ward. As Father Robert Hovda writes in a "Today" review: "This new collec- tion of (mostly) modern essays and poems about Jesus, 'The Book of The Saviour,' should be welcomed by every Christian who is con- cern~d about getting to the essen- tials of his faith." There are others you'll like to discover for yourself -- "Don Camilla and His Flock" by Guareschi; "The Christmas Book," (with stories from many countries) by Francis Weiser; the new and i illustrated "Letters to An Altar i Boy," by Rev. David E. Rosage; a novel story of Joan of Arc titled "The Halo On The Sword" by Mary l Purchell; "Listen, Sister," by] Father Moffatt; "Maria van Trapp (and her family's) new book Yesterday, Today and Forever"; and Alvena Burnite's "Your Teen Agers: How to Survive Them." New High School Named In Honor Of Heroic Priest Indianapolis --(NC)-- The new co-educational Catholic high school now under construction on the east side of this city will be known as Scecina High, in honor of Fath- er Thomas Scecina, a priest of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis who was killed in World War II. Father Scecina, a native of Lin- ton, Ind., died in October, 1944, aboard a Japanese prisoner-of-war transport which was sunk by Al- lied guns in the South China Sea. He was officially declared dead by the War Department in June O HUTTENS CLOTHING 115 E.
