Says Advanced Religion Study
Will Help Youth Avoid Pitfalls
CASTELGANDOLFO, Italy (Radio, NC) Eight hun
dred youthful winners in a national catechetical contest were
admonished bv His Holiness Pope Pius XII that it is absolutely
necessary to continue the advanced study of religion as well as
of other subjects.
Accompanied by 120 prie.d-cate
chisls, the students w’ere received
by the Holy Father at an audience
in his summer place here. He told
them that no one would expect of
them the depth of understanding
enjoyed by a student of theology,
“However, you must flee from
Hny manuals, which are insuffic
ient for men of culture, and guard
yourselves against a superficiality
which creates easy illusions, and
then unfailingly brings delusions to
him who is satisfied with memor
Pope Pius agreed that Catholic
students must excel in all branches
of culture, because duty demands
it, and the Church wants it.
“But it is likewise certain.” he
stated, “that the ever-growing de
velopment of your historical, lit
erary and scientific knowledge,
without the necessary adequate
deepening of religion, could be
most dangerous to your souls.”

Pontiff assured the students, would
help them to avoid the pitfalls of
doubt, “which is so dangerous to
souls.’’ He distinguished between
“static” and “dynamic” doubt, the
former being based, he said, on ig
norance, or meager or imperfect
understanding. He said he had no
fear of dynamic doubt, because
“that is what brings the mind to
the feet of truth by stimulating to
new further study and new con
The Pope told the students mot
to be afraid lest the further study
of religion would cast them on the
reefs of “any contrary scientific
truth whatever.” “True science,”
he said, “can never be contrary to
the Faith, because one truth can
never be in contrast with another,
the author of all truth being the
one. same, true God.”
In a special woM to the priest
catechists, the Holy Father cau
tioned them that the effort to in
struct and inform students should
never neglect the development and
perfection of their act of Faith.
“It would do no good.” he said.'
“for them to understand well if
they not also believe well all that
God has revealed and the Church
proposes for belief.”
A soldier wrote the other day
that he is delighted with his new’
camp. He says that the fellows are
educated, they read newspapers.
The camp he left had a gang of
comic book children, and it both
ered him no end. It is a good idea
to put away the things of a child
when you have passed the age of
childhood. Begin to develop tastes
for worth-while, intelligent read
ing or you will always be childish
in the things that amuse you. All
newspapers aren’t worthwhile.

Pope Urges Students To Continue Study of Religion
“I can certainly understand now
why there is need of a good Lay
Apostolate in our Diocese.” This
remark was made by one of the
Youth Council officers at a special
Diocesan officers’ meeting held
Sunday at the Youth Bureau.
The group had met to assemble
the data they have been collecting
recently in their “Historical and
Geographical Study of the Diocese
The study which has been con
ducted by members of the Five
Deanery Catholic x'uth Councils
will be presented orally by the
officers at the first session of
the “Institute for Youth Officers”
at St. Joseph Academy, sponsored
by the Diocesan Catholic Youth
Council on Sunday, Oct. 18. The
institute will mark the opening
of the local observance of National
Catholic Youth Week which is ob
served from Oct. 18-25.
This study project, which has
been under way for the past few
weeks, is designed to acquaint the
young people with the Church in
the Diocese. Maps Lave been drawn
showing the counties and their
populations which comprise lhe
five deaneries of the Diocese. Sta
tistics have been gathered showing
the number of parishes, the approx
imate number of Catholics in the
territory, the number of Catholic
Schools, and the approximate num
ber of Catholic young people at
tending the public schools.
The study will also contain a
brief sketch of the history of the
Deanery along with a summary of
the Natural and Industrial resour
ces that are found therein. The or
ganization of the Catholic Youth
program plus a sketch of the w’ork
of the non-Catholic and interde
nominational groups of the area,
will also be contained in the re
The day-long Institute which is
open to interested Catholic young
people and adult leaders will be
educational and informative. It will
close with a Holy Hour at Holy
Cross church at 4:45 m.
Members of the Catholic Youth
Council have been hard as work
during the past two w’eeks visiting
the pastors of the Diocese to ask
their help in recruiting young
people to attend this Institute. The
program is designed especially for
High School graduates and Sen
ior High school students.

Song of the Honda, Rector Law
rence Lee, Little Brown and Co.,
Boston, 1953, $2.50.
Song of the Honda, is a most ap
propriate title for this story of a
Peruvian boy who loved music. He
also wanted to become expert in
whirling the honda (a long sling
used by the Incas). Tomo, in prov
ing himself a man after his twelfth
birthday, tangles with a timber cat,
survives a swirling river into which
he falls, drives a llama train, and
has several encounters with rob
bers. The young boy comes through
these exciting episodes with rather
sudden and unexpected success,
but the variety of his experiences
will be thrilling to adventure-lov
Besides a plot that is packed
with excitement, young readers
will get a good picture of some
of the customs and conditions pre
vailing in Latin America. The sim
ilarities and differences shown be
tween the children of their nation
and the children of ours will take a
firm step in developing our Good
Neighbor policy. S.M.F.

tale will prove agreeable to all
horse fans. Even more agreeable is
the acquaintance made with Mar

standing which exists between
Martin and his mother, and the
man-to-man companionship which
he has with his father, make him
a boy to be admired. Martin is a
normal American boy with troub
les, and a younger brother gets
him down at times but his knack
of facing each difficulty is inspira

unfavorable criticism of this book
