A UINK NEWSPAPER OHIO STAl Vol. V, N-. DIVISION W ISE To the Roverend Clergy, Religious and Faithful of the Diocese of Columbys. My beloved Brethren: The Rosary has been described as tho prayer in which the veneration of the Blessed Virgin Mary finds its perfect expres sion. Countless holy people of every age and position have treas ured it and recited it with the greatest devotion, finding in it* simplicity the qualities of every true prayer—perseverance, love, hope and faith. I could urge you, my beloved Brethren, to understand fully the Catholic doctrine on true devotion to Mary the Mother of God. We live in an age when men outside the Church would have us believe that devotion to Our Lady lessens or in some way conflicts with the adoration of her Divine Son. The month of October offers the opportunity to read again the Holy Gos pel of Saint Luke and some of the many inspiring treatises about Christ's Mother. On the basis of that understanding, your daily Rosary will become a practical review of the mysteries of your faith and a meaningful part of your spiritual life. On October 13, 1942, Our Holy Father solemnly consecrated the entire world to Our Lady's immaculate Heart. Just ten years ago this month, in filial obedience to the wishes of the Sovereign Pontiff, we pledged the faithful of the Diocese of Columbus to Mary's Immaculate Heart. During this coming month of October, we have the ooportunity of lenewing this consecration with the resolution of the daily recitation of the Rosary in Mary's honor. Few of us, if any, can honestly say that we cannot spare the few minutes it requires to recite this prayer. I ask parents particularly, to say the Holy Rosary as a family prayer, as an instrumert of peace in their family, as a means of bringing father, mother, and children closer together under the patronage of Mary, beseeching her intercession that their family be another Holy Family. In these days of Inter national unrest, I recall for you the words of Mary at Fatima in which she pleaded for more and more prayer, especially the Rosary. It was then she pledged her word as the Mother of God that "if men pray there will be peace." These are powerful motivations which should prompt each of us to a firm intention of increasing love for the Blessed Virgin Mary. During this month of October, nothing would be more pleasing to Almighty God, nothing more salutary for our own salvation, nothing more conducive to international peace than a united crusade of prayer in honor of Mary, the Queen of tho Holy Rosary. Please take your part in the parish October de votions arranged by your devoted Pastor. Assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, daily if possible or at least frequently, during this blessed season. Be strengthened with the Holy Eucharist, the Bread of Angels, and increase, by the exact observance of the duties of your state of life, your love of Jesus Christ and your loyalty to His Holy Catholic Church. May Mary, Our Queen and Our Mother, hear the loving de vout prayers of the Rosary as they are offered in our homes and parishes for the glory of God, for the conversion of sinners, for peace in the world and for the favors we need in saving ur souls, especially for numerous worthy vocations to the Sacred Priesthood and Religious Life. With my blessing, My The United Appeal meant all of us. Every citizen has a duty to take an active part in what is everybody's responsibil ity. We should think of this Camoaign in terms of our mem bership in the Communion of Saints. We refer to that Com munion daily in our prayers. It recalls the mercy of Our Lord Jesus Christ in numbering us in fellowship with Himself and all for whom He offered Himself on the Cross. We should do our full share in supporting the United Ap peal. Many distressed and suffering neighbors—men, women and little children—speak to you through my voice. They urge you to relieve their anxieties and to bind up their wounds through the ministry of the United Appeal. With my blessing and affection, Devotedly in Christ, MICHAEL J. READY Protestants, Catholics Join In Drive Against Filth ST. ALBANS, Vt. (NC) Catholic priests have been joined by Protestant clergymen in de nouncing some of the magazines being sold on local newsstands. The publications were describ ed in such terms as “sewer liter ature,” “rotten” and filthy,” while milder mannered critics re ferred to them as "indecent liter ature" and “obscene magazines.” At present, there is no ordi nance against the sale of such literature here.

Even before the opening of the congress this subject has been discussed in private sessions, but full details of the discusion were carefully guarded. In the congress opening ad djess, His Eminence Gaetano Cardinal Cicognani. prefect of the Sacred Congregation of Rites and president of the Congress, hinted briefly but openly at the possibility of a breviary reform. As the days of the congress passed, what was at first whis pered began to be spoken open ly. The thunderous applause of the delegates to Cardinal Ler caro’s remarks on the breviary re form indicated their emphatic ap proval. They were not irresponsible men who spoke but some of th* best minds of the Church—ex perts and prominent scholars. Then Cardinal Lercaro stated the problem precisely when he asked: “Must the office of the dioce san clergy continue to be model eled on the lines of the monastic office?” He presented the two schools of thought on the matter. There are those, he said, who say that contractors were Christian Wag enschwanz. Hartman Dabus and Philip Nies. in the first year of his Pontificate, Rt. Rev. Silvester H.

Cardinal Says Breviary Might Be Reformed ASSISI, Italy (NC) His Eminence Giacomo Card inal Lercaro, Archbishop of Bologna, suggested that, sub ject to proper ecclesiastical authority, there might be a breviary for private recitation different from the present one, which was developed for monastic use. The breviary is the book containing those prayers of the Divine Office which priests are required to recite daily. private recitation of the office must be adapted to reduce to a monologue the constant dialogue. On th.e other hand, it remains true, he added that even when privately recited the office is al ways a public prayer and the choral form “seems to. reflect more clearly this character of public prayer.” “There is a second difficulty,” he said, “presented by conflict between the prescribed spiritual exercises of the priest $nd the full day’s work of his pastoral ministry. Often in praceice one must be sacrificed for the other.” In view of these considera tions that the breviary might be a source of spiritual strength instead of a burden, which though willingly accept ed might sometimes be given perfunctory performance. Car dinal Lercaro said the spiritual exercises of the priest might be combined logically with parts of the breviary. Instead of the priest covering the entire psalter in orte week, as now, he suggested might be spread over a Matins and lauds, two “hours” of the Divine might be combined with the priest's meditation, he said. Compline could be combined with the evening examination of con science. Other parts of the office could serve as spiritual reading. that it month, of the Likes Balance Of Old- New Ceremonies Office, VATICAN CITY (NC)— Leaders of the worldwide Li turgical Movement received the stirring encouragement of His Holiness Pope Pius XII to push on with the work of revitalizing the public worship of the Church. In a special audience here for which the 1,300 delegates to the International Congress on Pastoral Liturgy came by special train following their four days of work at Assisi, the Holy Father in effect gave the leaders and workers of the liturgical revival the accolade. “Well done.” Pop* Pius cam* from his summer home at Castelgandolfo especially to receive th* litur gists and to deliver a major ad dress to them. In it he noted that th* work of th* liturgy is th* work of the entire Church, hierarchy and laity alike. He declared that the “extent and depth” of the progress made by the Liturgical Movement dur ing the past 30 years, the interest aroused the liturgy, the pro posals already put into practice, and the active participation that that Liturgical Movement has brought about, could not even have been anticipated when the movement began. The Pope had a special com mendation for th* "balanced" way in which th* Liturgical Movement leaders have press ed for adaptation of th* Church's worship to the needs of modern times and at th* same time held firm to the vital traditions of the pest. He said: “In liturgical matters, as in many other fields, one must avoid two exaggerated viewpoints con cerning the past blind attach ment and utter contempt Immut able elements are found in the liturgy, a sacred content which transcends time but one also finds changeable, transitory, at times even defective elements. It seems to Us that the present-day attitude of liturgical circles to wards the past is quite balanced.” The Holy Father gave his ad dress in French in the huge Hall of Benedictions. The 1.300 mem bers of the clergy and laity who had come from Assisi were led by five Cardinals and by bishops from every part of the world. In his talk, the Pontiff spoke of the development of the liturgy in the present as well as in th* past. As to the present, he said: "Especially noteworthy is th* active and conscientious par ticipation of th* faithful at liturgical functions (Today, the Liturgy) returns to th* past, while not slavishly imitating it, yet creates new elements in th* ceremonies themselves (Continued on Page 2) Bishop Sheen On TV Sunday NEW YORK—(NC)—Auxil iary Bishop Fulton J.
