‘Queen Of Peace, Pray For Us’.*
Holy Father s Marian Year Prayer
Enraptured by the splendor of your heaven)} beauty, and impelled by the anxieties
of the world, we cast ourselves into your arms. O Immaculate Mother of Jesus and our
Mother, Mary, confident of finding in your most loving heart appeasement of our ardent de
sires, and a safe harbor from the tempests which beset us on every side.
Though degraded by our faults and overwhelmed by infinite misery, we admire and
praise the peerless richness of sublime gifts with w hich God has filled vou. abo\e even other
mere creature, from the first moment of your Conception until the da\ on which, after your
Assumption into heaven, He crowned you Queen of the Universe.
O crystal Fountain of faith, bathe our minds with the eternal truths! O fragrant Lily
of all holiness, captivate our hearts with \our heavenly perfume! O Conqueress of evil and
death, inspire in us a deep horror of sin which makes the
detestable to God and a slave
of hell!
O well-beloved of God. hear the ardent cry which rises up from every heart in this
year dedicated to you. ’fcend tenderly over our aching wounds. Convert the wicked, dry the
tears of the afflicted and oppressed, comfort the poor and humble, quench hatreds, sweeten
harshness, safeguard the flower of purity in youth, protect the holy Church, make all men
feel the attraction of Christian goodness. In your name, resounding harmoniously in heaven,
may they recognize that they are brothers, and that the nations are members of one family,
upon which may there shine forth the sun of a universal and sincere peace.
Receive. O Most Sweet Mother, our humble supplications, and above all obtain for
us that, one day, happy with you, we may repeat before your throne that hymn which today
is sung on earth around your altars: You are all beautiful. O Man! You aie the glory, you
are the joy, you are the honor of our people! Amen.

Mass In Honor Of Good Thief
To Be Said In Prisons Sunday
Special Masses in honor of St. Dismas will be offered Sun
day in more than 250 reformatories and prisons, including the
13 institutions served by priests in the Diocese of Columbus.
This will be the second annual Mass in honor of the Good
Thief, since it was approved
in 1953 bv the Holv See.
Prison chaplains of 85 penal in
stitutions in the United States last
year petitioned the Holy See
through the American Hierarchy
for the use of the special Mass of
the Good Thief on the second Sun
day of October. Bishop Martin D.
McNamara of Joliet was appointed
Episcopal sponsor for the United
States. Through the initiative of
His Eminence James Cardinal Mc
Guigan, Archbishop of Toronto, the
privilege was extended to Canada
St. Dismas—as the Good Thief
has been named by tradition—
has attracted the devotion and
aroused the hopes of men behind
prison bars. That Jesus Christ,
Himself, used one of the last
breaths that He drew on earth
to promise paradise to the thief
who was being put to death with
Him, has proven a consolation
and hope to those condemned by
society for their crimes, prison
chaplains say. They point out
that Jesus Christ is willing to do
the same thing for them some
Prison chaplains have another
purpose in fostering honor to St.
Dismas. In prisons, as elsewhere
in American life, they say, there
is danger that the concerns of this
world may be emphasized to such
an extent that the transitory na
ture of man’s life on earth is for
gotten. The dramatic story of St.
Dismas. they add, puts the empha
sis back where it should be—on
the dominant importance of spir
itual matters.
Institutions in the Columbus Di
ocese where these Masses
celebrated are the Ohio Penitenti

He said th«f "the question of
the legitimacy of atomic, oac

could not be posed as a matter
of principles, "except when it
must be judged indispensable to
defend oneself n the circum

“Even then, however,” he cau

through international understand

and stringent limits upon its use
so that its effects may not exceed
the strict exigencies of defense.”
“When this kind of warfare
escapes completely from human
