Asks Spiritual
Revolution of Youth
The youth of the Diocese were urged to begin a
spiritual revolution a return to God by their
Bishop at the closing plenary session of the DCCY
"WE NEED REASSERTION of the spiritual na
ture of man we need a spir

renewal of the law of God
over all the affairs of men in
individual life, family life,
social life, yes, n the life of
nations," Bishop Clarence G.
Issenmann said.
The spiritual foundation of
words and action, Bishop Is
senmann told the youth, is
prayer. "Unless God is the
groundwork on which we base
our lives, our entire purpose
in life, all achievements, dl
activity, all anything and ev
erything is meaningless."

guidance and His strengthen

does not by any means dis
criminate against our other
duties—to country, fellowmen,
ourselves, but rather guaran

"SO IT IS," he continued,

citizens as we keep God first
in our lives. We are as patri
