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,
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,
Protestants, Catholics Join
In Drive Against Filth
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.

beloved Brethren:
The essential annual Community effort in behalf of our
less fortunate neighbors, and the consequent welfare of Frank
lin County, is scheduled for October 1st to October 18th. Just
to mention the United Appeal Campaign should be sufficient to
arouse your generous interest and to enlist your cooperation
in its important work.

The Cardinal’s recomendations
had a dramatic impact upon the
delegates to the International
Congress of Pastoral Liturgy’.
Even before the opening of the
congress this subject has been

possibility of a breviary reform.

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

“hours” of the Divine

Likes Balance
Of Old- New
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
