For the alxth time The Lamp la
cues Its call for the observance of
the Church Unity Octave from the
feast of 6t. Peter's Chair at Rome,
January 18, to the feast of the Con
version of St. Paul, January 25.
Every year the importance of ob
serving this octave increases because
every year it becomes more impera
tive that all Christians should clearly,
recognize the Chair of Peter as the
divinely constituted center of unity
and that the Separatists of the East,
as well as the Protestants of the
West, instead of any longer fighting
against God by opposing the Papacy,
should return to communion with
the Apostolic See and thereby give
such a demonstration of Catholic
unity that the whole world would
believe and, prostrate at the feet of
Christ, cry aloud with St. Thomas,
"My Lord and my God!" The Church
Unity Octave has received the
sanction and blessing of the Holy
Father, Cardinals, Archbishops,
Bishops and priests. The way In
which it may be observed la by
prayer and daily or frequent holy
communion on the part of the faith
ful generally, offered to the Sacred
Heart for the fulfillment of his
' prayer, "That all may be one."
The last issue of the Extension
Magazine carries the seventh annual
renoTt of the President of the
Catholic Church Extension Society
An Impressive item in the report i
that which announcea the building of
ninety-three chapels by the society
in Its past fiscal year. Since its or
ganization seven years ago the
society has been instrumental in
erecting 630 chapels, mostly in j the
South and West. The President of
the society In his report makes a re
mark the truth of which must be
felt by ewyone who has noted the
T Skfrtmtonarv BDlrit in
the United States in recent years
The society, he says, has done some
thing which can not he measured
dollars and cents. It has awakened
the missionary spirit on the part of
our veonle and made them see t
necessity of supporting causes other
than those under their eyes. Every
missionary cause in the United States
was benefited by the establishment
of Church Extension. The enthuslas
tlo way we went at it put greater
enthusiasm into them, to the ma
terial benefit of the causes Tepre
sented. So that the last seven
vears in the history of the Catholic
church of the United States have
teen the greatest seven years for
v missions. The Extension Magazine,
which has become one of the great
organs of opinion in this country
end whose assistance has been of
Incalculable value, is deserving of
the encouragement now heing
accorded it.
Publlo sentiment against contract
labor in prisons Is growing. The
Booher hill, which provides for the
abolition of such labor in Feleral
nenitentlarles. is now pending in
rnnrrwu nd will probably be
favorably reported by the Judiciary
ittee of the United States
Senate. It is likely to pass. Wher
ever there has been a radically
honest investigation of contract
labor in prisons this has been con
demned. As the Catholic Columbian
polntii out, it tends not to reform
the convicts, hut to brutalize them.
It saps their strength to make
profits for the contractors. It
places them and their welfare sub
ordinate to the interests of the
outside business that has contracted
for them like so many machines.
Their health, their right to humane
treatment, their self-respect, their
hope of reform arc all subordinated
to the greed of the contractors to
make more money.
A correspondent of the Omaha
World-Herald Bays, anent the vary
ing translations of the Bible about
which the sects are now disputing:
"The Lutheran and other
churches will not accept the 'Im
proved Version.' The Danlbh Bible
has also been reviesd and is ueed by
the Lutheran church. The Danish
n.nii.t fhnrih Daner accuses the
i ) a l' L I D L w .1 ' .
translator, of knowingly translating
tutors oi 'u"'"V.;,":be 'lin
rong and urges their members
it wi
not to ute and distribute it. When j
..hnri-h finds something in the
li!b! that la contrary to it par
ticular doctrine they call it an
'.authorized addition or liiti-rpolu-i
wrong tratiblution, or wroug
punctuation, and s6metlmes make
out a passage to mean the opposite
of what it. reads. An outsider will
ask? 'Which is the true and In
spired word of God?' "
Just so, says Rev. Father Gannon
In the True Voice. And who but an
Infallible church can tell these poor
gropers after divine truth which , is
the true and inspired word of God?
The Catholic church settles this
Uatter in her doctrinal pronounce
ments. But evidently it has not
occurred to the warring sects to
consult the one authority that could
settle this dispute.
Father Phclan. of the Western
Watchman, is an earnest advocate ot
healthful and innocent amusements
There never was a time in this coun
try, he asserts, when people wero so
bent on amusements as now. And
tho character of the amusements
offered is on the whole healthy and
Innocent. Ho also insists it is one
of the first duties of civilization to
minister to the joys of the people.
The Catholic church has c.lways
fostered 'innocent popular amuse
ments. The history of the growth
and prosperity of the church in this
country is intertwined with parish
festivities. In the good old days
pprisb.es had their festivals and.
bazars, and all classes of the people
took part In th5m. Then for a quar
ter of a century there was a lull and
the parishes did not come together
as of yore to have a pleasant
evening. Commending the general
disposition manifest to make parish
entertainments uplifting as well as
popular, the venerable St. Louis
priest editor adds:
"For several years past the people
of the parishes have been singing
and dancing together on-an average
of once a month. We never had,
even in the palmiest days of our
parish festivities, anything like the
number of festivals that are now
being held all over the city. And
we hear on every hand that good
has resulted. Young people meet
each other under conditions favor
able to honest and honorable
courtship, and the number of mixed
marriages is on the decrease in con
seauence. The bond of a common
faith Is strengthened, and the out
look for happy domestic Catholic life
is broadened and brightened. As
the theaters have felt the ruinous
competition of the picture shows, so
now the picture shows find their
recelptr seriously impaired by the
prevalence of the parish festivities.'
At the beginning of the new year
the leader of the once great and
powerful English Tory party, Bonar
Law, is a general without an army
because be still stands upon the
ancient ways of protectionism, and
even proposes to revive under the
name of imperial federation the
mutual Interference of England and
the colonies with each other's busi
nees which nearly a century and a
half ago lost England the United
States, and which, if carried out to
day, would certainly result
in the
loss of England ot her great ove
seas dominions The conservauva-n
party today is like a defeated and
routed army trying to gather its
troops in new positions under the
violent fire of the enemy, for the
radical press ot course is fully aware
of the confusion in the other camp
and makes the most of it. As to what
the Tory platform for 1913 will be
it la verv hard to make a guess at'
the present time. Certain it is only
that Bonar Law's days as leader are
numbered, and that the only thing
which keeps him in the saddle is the
fact that the real leaders realize the
truth of the old saying? "Don't swap
horges while crossing a stream.'
And all this portends to home rule
for Ireland and the rights and
liberties accorded Canada and Aus
tralia. The Christian Year, our Coving
ton contemporary, ably edited and
always lnterecting, has entered upon
its second volume. May every
succeeding year Increase its circuly
tlon and prosperity.

ward wiping out the debt, which has
been standing for many years.
Father McGovern's , report showed
that at the beginning of the year the
total debt amounted to $25,623 and
that 812.025 had been paid on this
amount, leaving a debt of $13,698
at the beginning or the present year.
This amount the reverend pastor
hopes to decrease greatly or wipe
out entirely this year and therefore
urges the congregation to work
faithfully to that end. Father Mc-
Govern has been untiring in his
labors and has the satisfaction of a
record year in the Dominican parish.
Popular and Loved Priest
Transferred to St.
The Rev. Robert Craney. who is
well rememhered as an assistant to
the lamented Father Lawler at St.
Patrick's church, this city, but lor
quite a number of years the beloved
pastor of St. Anne's congregation at
Morganfleld, has been transferred to
St. Cecilia's church to fill the
vacancy caused by the death of Rev.
Andrew J. Brady. Father Craney
was ordained twenty-eight years ago
at the same time that the Very Rev.
James P. Cronln, present pastor of
St Patrick's rhnrch and Vicar Gen
eral of the diocese, was ordained. He
is fifty-three years or age. While
his former parishioners regretted his
departure they are rejoiced that he
comes to a larger and more impor
tant charge. His last mass at St.
Anne's was largely attended and
Father Cranev'a farewell sermon was
very touching, especially when he
referred to his affection for his
people and called attention to the
fact that a large per cent, of them
have received from him all three
sacr; ments of baptism, communion
and marriage. He has recently
caused to be erected there a large,
handsome day school, a dream of
many years, father Rehm, a native
of Stlthton, but for some time past
stationed at T.phannn has been sent

The Vatican printing office, which
has been equipped with the latest
Mergenthaler linotype machines,
from which were printed the first
edition of the "Psalterium Brevlaril
Romanl," is one of the most perfect
to be found. Follow'ng is an inter
esting bit of history of the office and
its institution sent the Mergenthaler
Company by Slgnor J. Nelson Banks,
manager of the Socleta Linotype
ltallana, whose office is at Milan:
"The Tlpografia Pollglotta Vati
cana was founded by Pope Sixtus V.,
who, thus became one of the earliest
Introducers ot the printing art into
Italy. The first printing office,
however, was not in the Vatican,
but was Installed in a convent at
Subiago, near Rome, and it appears
that it was there that two German
brothers, apprentices ot Gutenberg,
first taught the art of printing, under
the protection of Sixtus V. Shortly
afterward the printing office was
removed to the Vatican and installed
over the Pontifical law courts,
where it remained until the acces
sion of the present Pope Plus X. The
latter, recognizing the necessity of
modernizing the institution, had the
present building erected, equipped
it with the latest and best machinery
and appliances, and placed it under
the able management of Comm.
Pasqualj Scotti. The library or the
printing office 1s most interesting,
and its exhibits form a complete
chain In the. progress of printing
from the fifteenth century to tne
present day. Here may be seen, tor
Instance, boohs printed on nana
presses from type held together by
a poker passed through each sep
arate character."

Ira It Catholics Preparing
for Great National
Catholics of Ireland have received
with pleaaure the announcement that
with the approval of the Arch-
blbhops and Bishops a great national
pilgrimage to Lourdea is about to be
organized and will take place next
September. Many Irish Catholics
have of course joined in the annual
pilgrimage to this famous shrine in
the South of France, but this will be
the first national pilgrimage spe
cially organized from Ireland. At
their last general meeting . the
Bishops unanimously approved of
the project and Cardinal Logue has
stated that he hopes to accompany
the pilgrims. Already an Organising
Committee, representative of every
diocese in Ireland, has been formed
and there can be no doubt that the
project will be warmly supported by
Irish Catholics..
