Bishop's Statement In announcing the Eighth An nual Labor Day Mass, Bishop Ready said: “The annual religious observance of the holiday empha sizes for the community the true character w'hich Catholics attach to the day. “We realize,” he continued, “that peace is the work of justice, as Pope Pius XII has eloquently declared on his Papal Coat of Arms.” Emphasizing that “political, in dustrial and economic peace will he the long-desired fruit of the virtues of justice and charity ap plied specifically to labor rela tions,” the Bishop warned, “un bridled power and brutal force are the evidence of a rampant spirit of greed and selfishness. Peace and prosperity cannot result from such a spirit. We are well aware that a secularist philosophy which leaves God out of human relation ships can no more succeed in in dustrial life than it has anywhere else. We condemn that philosophy in education and business life. It cannot be accepted as the way to social peace and justice. Prayer Needed “We should pray this Labor Day,” the Bishop declared, “that God’s blessings descend on all those who work and who hire la bor to the end that they may live as brothers in the love of their Savior Jesus Christ.” He continued, “This much-desir ed spirit of cooperation will bring about a great abundance of ma terial goods for all citizens and re sult in a community relationship which will prevent the ugly growth of class warfare. We may expect such blessings only if God’s law takes precedence over every other consideration.” The Bishop concluded by calling upon all the priests of the diocese to announce the Labor Day Mass on the two Sundays preceding La bor Day. Expressing confidence that "men and women of labor, business and the professions will again give witness to the belief in the basic religious character of this national holiday,” he said: “the occasion deserves an enthusi astic response to our invitation to assist at Holy Mass at St. Joseph Cathedral on Labor Day at 10 a.m.” -------------------0------------------- Announce Courses Aimed To Assist Men In Industry Two Catholic educational in stitutions have announced courses this fall to aid persons in industry.

The Catholic Times Columbus 16, Ohio, Friday, August 29, 1952 Pontiff (^alls For Truth In The University Asks that Age-Old Link Be Renewed with Church In Message to Pax Romana TORONTO (NC) Renewal of “the age-old links between the Church and Universities” was urg ed by His Holiness Pope Pius XII in a special message here to the 22nd Congress of Pax Romana. international federation of Cath olic graduates and students. The lope’s message was address ed to Roger Millot. of France, re tiring president of the graduates’ section of Pax Romana, known as the International Catholic Move ment for Intellectual and Cultural Affairs (ICMICA) and to Rosairo Beaule. of Montreal, president of the undergraduates’ section, called the International Movement of Catholic Students (IMCS). Attended by hundreds of stu dents and graduates from si# con tinents, the Congress marked the first time that international meet ings of Pax Romana were held in Canada. Mankind Eager “If the vicissitudes of the times,” Pope Pius wrote, “have sometimes relaxed the age-old links between the Church and Universities, the present-day disorientation of a mankind eager for unity and con cord, and the spiritual anguish of so many persons of goodwill, all invite you to re-establish those links once again. It is with that thought that you, Catholic students and intellectuals, shall apply your selves to the study of the mission —traditional, yet ever new—of the University. Your duty is to know it well in order to serve it well.” The Pope urged that "in order to maintain themselves free of harmful particularizations," it is necessary "to multiply the contacts between teachers and students of the various countries” and to "de velop, by the study of languages and by useful collaboration, the ap preciation of the intellectual riches proper to each.” Asserting that the university’s task to “form the intellectual pei sonality of the student,” Pope Pius warned it to be on guard "lest it fail in its highest mission, namely, that of giving to young minds a respect for truth, and of guiding them to independent lines of thought, indispensable to their in tellectual maturity.” He added that Catholic universities, guided by the Church, “will be schools of truth” and “mistresses of life, Christian, moral, civic and social.” Liturgical Parley Hails Pius For Bringing Mass to People Delegates Also Pay Tribute To Present Pontiff For Restoration of Easter Vigil CLEVELAND (NC) The outstanding part played by Blessed Pope Pius in fostering greater lay participation in the liturgy of the Church was underscored here by speakers at the 13th annual meeting of the National Liturgical Conference. At a Pontifical Mass during the Conference. Bishop Peter J. Bar tholome. Coadjutor of St. Cloud. Minn., asserted that Pius had done more than anyone else to bring the Mass to the people and to encourage greater understand ing of. and respect for “this great central act of worship.” In a tribute coinciding with the 38th anniversary of the death of Pope Pius X, Bishop Bartholome declared that “Pius has done more for the spiritual life of man kind than any other man in the last 500 or 600 years.” “He took the simple basic things within the Catholic body and formed them and brought them to light, and asked the Cath olic world to accept them,” Bishop Bartholome added. “He has done more than anyone else has done to bring the Mass to the people, so much that Catholics are beginning to appreciate more that great cen tral act of worship. He also began the reform of the liturgy—partic ularly the music.” Bishop Bartholome added: “I would ask you to pray to God that his canonization may soon be an accomplished fact, so that he might be raised to the altar and like St. Bernard whom we honored in today’s Mass, some day we can say a Mass in honor of one who has been so close to our time and who is so intimately connected with the Liturgical Conference.” Speaking at a general session, the Rev. Aloysius F. Wilmes, Ells bery, Mo., recalled that when Pope Pius ascended the throne of .Pe ter of 1903 “the nadir of active lay participation in the liturgy had been reached.” Music Reform Needed “The congregation at that time,” Father Wilmes said, “was com pletely silenced, occupied with pri vate devotions or substitutes, sac red music had run wild to the 4-__________ OFFICIAL In accordance with and sub ject to th* liturgical l|w» of the Church, th* oration De SPIRITU SANCTO is herewith ordered si the Oratio Imperata for priests celebrating th* Holy Sacrifice of th* Mess within the limits of the Diocese of Columbus.

My beloved Brethren. School Enrollment Hits Close To 20,000 Jump Is 7 Increase In Year September school bells do more than announce the opening of a new school year. They proclaim the essential place of Christian Education in rearing generations of morally responsible citizens and the grave obligation of parents in providing a thorough Catho lic education for youth. Indeed, as the years of the present world crisis move on, the system of Catholic education assumes an ever increasing importance in the life of the individual and of society as a whole. It is trite to say that the greatest evil in our day is the absence in many minds of a right sense of moral values. We are constant ly complaining about the serious moral problems in our neighbor hood as well as in society at large. We express our fear at the growing spirit of irresponsibility among youth. We readily con fess that something must be done, and done quickly, to save society from the anarchy of immorality. On all sides we hear that salva tion can come only from a strong adherence to moral values. But moral values come from our religious convictions. One cannot separate religious truth and a right sense of moral values. Edu cational systems which deny God or ignore His law can never beget right moral values. The hope of our society is that men and women generally, parents and youth itself, by the very force of the widespread moral revolt of the times, are fast coming to realize that moral values come from religious truth and conviction. Sincere Catholic parents recognize all this as a minimum of true education. They seek something more for their children. They seek the truth and grace of Christian living for their sons and daughters. They seek the inspiring loyalty to Christ for those whom God in His mercy has entrusted to their responsibility. They will not stop at the indefinite and catch-all phrase of moral values. They want Christ's way and truth and life for their child ren and they will not deprive their eons and daughters of any part of their rich Catholic heritage. Faith in Jesus Christ and loyalty to His Holy Church, the Pitler of Truth, the strong Fortress of Morality, are what worthy Catholic parents seek for their child ren. They know that the Catholic school has proved its ability to direct youth to its noblest purpose on earth and to its true destiny hereafter. The opening of the schools in the Diocese should be an oc casion for solemn thanksgiving to God for the continued sacrifices of saintly parents and for all who have built our schools and pres ently maintain them to a standard of excellence. In a particular way we recognize our debt to the Sisters of the various Religious Communities teaching in our schools. They indeed by their holy lives are a constant inspiration to the youth of our Parishes. Their devoted service makes possible the very existence of ou schools. Certainly the homage of our prayers and love will be daily offered for the Sisters whose heroic sacrifices bring untold blessing to this Diocese. The Faithful of this Diocese have long recognized the zealous leadership of their Priests in behalf of Catholic Education. The chief burden of providing the ways and means of such a glorious apostolate has rested with the Reverend Fathers of our Parishes. Our prayers of gratitude should be offered to God to the end that the fine traditions of the Diocese in reference to Christian educa tion will be a source of constant inspiration in meeting the needs of the future. I am grateful for this occasion to express my commendation to the Dominican Sisters for their inestimable contribution to the religious and intellectual life of this community in administering Saint Mary of the Springs College. For more than twenty-five years the Springs has provided unusual educational opportunities the young ladies of Columbus and other cities in the Diocese, every standard Saint Mary's measures up to the best among colleges in our country. Its high quality of instruction and range of courses should recommend it to students who seek best preparation for a morally motivated, useful, happy life. I speak very frankly to the fine Catholic parents of the Dio cese, as well as to the pastors. Sister Principals of the High Schools, and the beloved youth of our Holy Church. It is very difficult for me to understand why Saint Mary’s is not enthusiastically selected by parents and prospective students for college work. Granted with my blessing that there are many M'ho will seek Catholic Colleges in the east or west to pursue their education, yet it is disturbing that so many young ladies with the approval of their parents enroll at the/state university or non-Catholic colleges. Par ents especially should consider their obligation to their daughters and see to it that they attend a Catholic College, especially one of such high rank as Saint Mary’s here in our own community. The evil counsels about "greater social prestige,” or about “a better chance for advancement in the material things of life." or about a “more broadening experience” rise from a rampant spirit of secu larism which refuses to acknowledge God’s first claim tn loyalty in all human action. I plead with you, my beloved Brethren, to head my words and to be insistent about selecting the best relig ious and educational opportunities for your daughters. Saint Mary’s and the Dominican Sisters at the Springs have merited our full support and encouragement. Through Mary’s Immaculate Heart we plead for blessings on the ’iomes of our devout Catholic families and on the excellent Catholic schools which the parents of those homes make possible.
