But his humil. ity was more impressive than his eloquence, and on August 4. 1903, he was elected Pope, taking the name of Pius X. This weekend it becomes an indisputable fact that the humble Pontiff had been given an even greater dignity. He had been raised to the elect in Heaven. The solemn proclamation assur ing th* faithful throughout the world that Cardinal Sarto, later Pope Pius X, is a Saint is being pronounced by Pope Piu* XII in a colorful ceremony in St. Peter'* square. Pope Pius becomes the first oc cupant of the chair of Peter to be proclaimed a Saint in 242 years. He is the first Pope in more than six centuries to be canonized by a successor who knew him personal ly. The last Pope previously can onized was St. Pius V who reigned The Catholic Times Columbus 16, Ohio, Friday, May 2t, 1954 To the Reverend Clergy, Religious, and Faithful of the Dioct^e of Columbus. My beloved Brethren: Church and State (POAU), now pending in Franklin County cir cuit Court. Th* suit seeks to bar Catholic nun* from teaching in Kentucky public school*. The editorial, entitled “Protest ants Protest Too Much,” related that Covington’s Bishop W’llliam T. Mulloy laid the cornerstone for a new $800,000 Catholic high school in Newport, Ky., and mentioned that another new Catholic high school to serve Covington is under construction in Park Hills, Ky. The editorial continued: “These institutions are financed by members of the Roman Catholic Church, over and above the taxes they pay, like everyone else, to the public school systems. “There is pending at the present time a suit to enjoin state school authorities from permitting Catho lic nuns to teach in public schools, based on the constitutional concept of separation of church and state. Yet there exists a serious shortage of teachers, and the teaching nuns are unquestionably fulfilling a need. “Because Catholics believe so de Pius X, ‘The Children’s Pope’ Gained High Place In Heaven Almost 51 years ago a short, stocky man begged his fellow Cardinals not to elect him to the chair of Peter because, as he put it: “I am not worthy.’ Giuseppe Cardinal Sarto had come from Venice to take part in the election of a suc cessor to Leo XIII, but with a return ticket in his pocket. As the balloting for him became stronger, his face became troubled. There were tears in his^yes and his voice trembled as he pleaded writh fellow Cardinals not to elect him Pope. from 1566 to 1572 and was pro claimed a Saint in 1712. The last Pope to be canonized as soon after death as St. Pius was St. Celes tine V, who died in 1296 and was raised to the altar in 1313. Genuine Wealth St. Pius died on August 20. 1914 His last will and testament had stated: “I was born poor, I have lived poor, and I wish to die poor.” But his solemn canonization this weekend gives proof to the Catholic world of the genuine wealth that awaited him at death. The humble Pontiff had not only amassed spiritual w'ealth in Heaven. He had left the riches of an in spiring example on earth. It led to an official inquiry into his life with a view to beatification only nine years after his death. In 1951 he was declared a Blessed by the Church. This declaration was ex ceptional since the Pontiff had been dead only 37 years. Normally no one may be proclaimed blessed (Continued on Page 2) Official Sunday, June 6, is the Feast of Pentecost. The entire Liturgy of the Church for that celebrated day bespeaks the loving providence with which the Eternal Father in heaven fulfilled the promise of Hi* Divine Son, Jesus Christ, to send forth the Holy Spirit upon the Church and dwell there forever. “The Paraclete, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name. He will teach you all things, and bring all things to your mind, whatsoexer I shall have said to you (Gospel) and there apneared to them parted tongues as it were of fire, and it sat upon ©very one of them and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit” (Epistle). What the soul is in our body such is the Holy Spirit to the Body of Christ, the Church. Traditionally, in the Diocese of Columbus, the clergy and people, like their predecessors in the Upper Room at Jerusalem prepare for the Feast of Pentecost in a novena of prayer to the Holy Spirit. The great feastday itself is devoted to fervent prayer for the young men of this Church of Columbus who are now in our seminaries disciplining their minds and wills for the glorious day of their ordination to the Sacred Priesthood. 1 urge you, beloved breth ren, to life up your hearts to God petitioning Him to bless this Diocese with increased vocations to that holy state and to bestow upon our priests the grace of an arduous love for the works of His Sacred Ministry. I assure you, my dear people, that the clergy of this Diocese remember with profound gratitude in their daily Masses the bene factors of our Seminary. W’e are especially thankful for the help given us through the wills, bequests and donations of many kind and beneficent lay people. Without these gifts we would be unable to keep up the high standards of training exacted in these days of specialized apostolic work. I encourage you to continue your generosity. With my blessing and prayers during these days that the Holy Spirit fill your hearts with a burning love for the things of God, Protest Too Much? May 19, 1954 Devotedly in Christ, MICHAEL J. READY Bishop of Columbus Protestant Editor Hits Kentucky School Suit COVINGTON, Ky. (NC) Using the cornerstone lay ing ceremonies for a Catholic high school as a springboard, a non-Catholic editorial writer for The Kentucky Times-Star counselled his fellow Protesters that there is such a thing as protesting too much. Th© writer paid tribute to th* devotion of Catholic* to their school system and to the nun* who teach in them. The writer alto criticized a suit inspired by Protestant* and Other Ameri can* United for Separation of voutly in their Church that they are willing to build new schools and become teachers to propagate their faith, Protestants and others are frequently fearful of them, and because they are fearful, critical. "Th* writer of this editorial happen* to be a Presbyterian, but our advice to anyone fearing ultimate Catholic domination of th* educational process**, and thus of the nation, is to stop cavilling at them and try to match their devotion, dedication, and zeal.” June Schedule Of Bishop Hettinger June 1, Tuesday, 7:30 P.M.— Confirmation, St. Patrick, Lon don.

Costantini Named Chancellor VATICAN CITY (Radio, NC)— His Eminence Celso Cardinal Cos tantini was named today to be the Chancellor of he Holy Roman Church. The office has been va cant since the death of Cardinal Tommaso Pio Boggiani in 1942. Appointment was made by His Holiness Pope Pius XII. Cardinal Costantini becomes the forty-first occupant of the post since a Cardi nal was named to it by Pope John XXII in 1319. The function of the chancery is the preparation and transmission of Pontifical Bulls for ecclesiastical benefices, the erection of new di oceses and chapters, and other se rious matters. It does work for and under the direction of the Consis torial, Propaganda and Oriental Congregations and for the Pope himself. Cardinal Costantini, who is 78 years old, was elevated to the Sa cred College in January, 1953. ‘’Voice’ Lauds Catholic Labor, Social Outlook WASHINGTON—(NC) Catholic social principles were contrasted to Red slave labor policies in a Voice of America Broadcast beamed to hundreds of Iron Curtain captives. The broadcast used Papal En cyclicals on labor and social problems as examples of a just and balanced method for solving the world’s problems of poverty and inhumanity. Opposed to such justice, broadcaster Liston M. Oak said, is communism which violates the worker s right “to worship in freedom, his right to free choice of a job, his right to a decent live lihood sufficient to fill the mater ial, cultural and spiritual needs of his family.” Th* Voice of America pointed out that in addition to condemn ing th* immortality of commun ism, the Pop* also rejected "lai* *ez fair* capitalist individual ism which result* in the exces sive accumulation of vast wealth in the hands of a few capitalist* who abuse th* power it give* them." The broadcast said that Catholic labor leaders, working with mem bers of other faiths in the Free World have succeeded in remov ing “most of the excesses, evils and abuses of laissez faire capitalism/ “Such evils as child labor, the sweatshop, the speed-up, peonage, the brutal suppression of the rights of labor, are bad memories in a dark past,” Mr. Oaks said. “It is in the Soviet world, not in Ameri ca, that ruthless exploitation of la bor prevails—even to the extreme of millions condemned to a living death in slase labor camps.” -------------o——------------- Priest-Workers To Continue Working In Modified Form PARIS (Radio, NC) The Church wants to continue the priest-worker movement, but under a modified form. His Eminence Maurice Cardinal Feltin. Arch bishop of Paris, has stated here. Asked to discuss the priest-work er problem while attending a din ner of the Economic Geography So ciety of France, the Cardinal said that Marxist influences had led certain priest-workers astray. They had made some priest-workers adopt improper attitudes and ac cept labor union responsibilities that were none of their affair. The Church, however, wants to continue the movement in a modified form, he stated. Certain priest-workers, he added, have not yet understood the ne cessity of this, but on the whole the priest-workers have submitted and are currently seeking along with the Hierarchy for new means of carrying on their apostolate. o------------------- Pius Postage Stamps VATICAN CITY (Radio, NC) —Commemorative stamps in three denominations are being prepared to mark the canonization of Pope Pius X. Construction Projects Mark Record Growth Of Church In Diocese The phenomenal growth is re flected, too. in the annual school report submtited to Bishop Ready this week by Father C.

Made Easter Price Ton Cents $3.00 A Year New Churchs, Schools Included In Program The Columbus Diocese is undergoing the most expansive building program in its 86-year history in order to keep pace with the spectacular growth of the Church. The extent of the building program was brought to light this week by a survey which indicated that 21 projects total ing approximately §3,205.000 either have reached the archi tect’s drawing board or are in actual construction. When completed, the diocese will have five new churches, three remodeled churches, two new parish halls, five new schools, four enlarged schools, three new rectories and an expanded rectory.

The necessity for such an intensi fied building program is found in statistics contained in the 1954 Of ficial Catholic Directory which notes that Catholic population in the Diocese has climbed to 121.360. a new all-time record. This repre sents a gain of 7.393 Catholics in I comparison with the previous year. later for classroom space, and will be constructed in such a manner as to be easily expanded. The church will ha\e a 400-seat capa city. Although the contract has not yet been awarded, it is estimated that the cost of the building will be in the neighborhood of $125,000.

The three unit-, which will cost $115,505. will be located on Rt. 33. north of the city. The new church, which will seat 210, will replace the present structure which was built in 1869.
