The efforts now making by archbishops
in some American cities to bring the
Catholic Church's Influence to bear upon
the stage, the writers of Its plays and
the managers of their presentations,
that the$ general moral and literary tone
may be raised, is a part of a general
Catholic movement that has been going
on in Europe for some sears. It be
gan in France, extended next to Ger
many, and Is now being pushed not only
In America but also In Italy and in
The purpose of the movement Is far
wider than that nothing presented on
any stage shall reflect upon Catholic
teachings or Institutions. It Involves
that. It Is true, but the Catholic Church
has alwass recognized the power of the
stage While long removed from the
Influence of the church. It Is neverthe
less great Paris, Berlin, London, Milan,
Ls-ons, and Frankfort have led In organ
ized efforts of Catholics In the directions
now taken by archbishops and other pre
lates In America. "
