Feasts of the Immaculate Con
ception on December 8 in 1953
and 1954—the opening and clos
ing days of the Marian Year—
and on certain other feast days
of the Year, are "toties quoties."
This means Vatican authori
ties pointed out, that a plenary
indulgence may be gained on
these days as often as a Cath
olic, who has already confessed
and received Holy Communion,
visits a church and prays for
the Pope's intentions.
According to the terms of the
indulgence, the church must be
one built in honor of the Bless
ed Virgin. In mission areas, it
suffices to visit a chapel dedi
cated to the Mother of God.
Besides the Feast of the Im
maculate Conception, the other
days on which the special Marian
Year plenary indulgences may
be gained "toties quoties" are
Mary's Nativity Sipt 8, the Feast
of the Purification of the Bless

are either plenary or partial. Ple

connected with it, for those who

on the opening and closing days of
the Marian Year.
Il stated that during the Marian
Year all altars dedicated to the
Blessed Virgin Mary will be privi
leged in favor of every deceased
Christian for whom Mass is offered
by any priest whatever. (A privi
leged altar is one at which a ple
nary indulgence may be gained for
a soul in Purgatory by the celebra

The decree declared that, in ad

listed, special plenary indulgences
also may be gained during the Mar

in which the Virgin Mary is vener

the faithful customarily go on pil

from a considerable distance.
Under the terms of the decree,
the faithful may gain a plenary in

shrines, not only on Saturdays and

in the decree, but on any other day

he married his hometown sweet

Thanksgiving Spirit Takes Over At St. James
CANDIED APPLES ALL AROUND! That was the order of the day last week in the eighth grade
classroom at St. James the Less school, when three St. Mary of the Springs students celebrated publi
cation of a poem they had written, by treating every one. The poem, "Lauds for Larry" was based on
ideas submitted by the St. James' eighth graders. In the picture above, the college students and three
of the youngsters enjoy their candied apples as they look over copies of the poem. They are, left
to right, Jack Tierney, Pat Fallon, Jim Sheridan, Mary Weber, Charles Pickard and Margaret Zang.
The spirit of Thanksgiving is
particularly gay this week at St.
James the Less School and the Col
lege of St. Mary of the Springs.
The reason? Three Columbus jun
iors at the College. Patricia Fallon,
1459 E. Fulton Mary Weber, 215
E. Tulane Road and Margaret
Zang. 729 Linwood, decided to re
new the fifteenth century practice
of communal or co-operative folk
intelligence by jointly composing
a poem. They chose the idea of an
eighth grader’s litany of thanks to
God for little things that make
In order to get genuine reactions,
they asked Sister Miriam, O.P.,
eighth grade teacher at St. James
the l^ss to have her students list
the little things for which they
thanked God. Top hilling on most
lists went to edibles such as pie.
cake, sodas, sundaes, and pop. Bi
cycles, TV sets, paper routes were
also mentioned. Some diplomatical
ly listed their teacher and class
In the Forms of Writing Class,
the three young poets welded the
ideas into a hymn of thanks entit
led “Lauds for Larry.” Last week
the poem was accepted by The
Young Catholic Messenger for pub
lication in a subsequent issue.
To celebrate their first sale, the
college poets visited St. James the
Less School, read the poem and ex
plained how it came to be written.
Appropriately enough they pre
sented their young “inspirations”
with a treat of candied apples.
Not to be outdone. Ihe eighth grad
ers responded with original poems
of their own and corsages for Ihe
visitors. Everybody was very thank-
