The cateehist move ment in England, which includes a definite training in the teach ings of St. Thomas for proposed street lecturers, has a counter part in Rome, where the Grego rian university has announced a two-year course of lectures, to be given three or four evenings a week, followed by discussions and practical exercises. Four famous Jesuits are iu charge, and the students are to be laics. The Louisville, Ky., Knights of Columbus have issued this state ment: One test, of a practical Catholic is whether or not he has made his Easter duty, but this is not the only test. The precept of Easter Communion is but one pre cept of the Church. The 'precept requiring us to contribute to the support of our pastors is equally binding. In Louisville and vicini ty, the usual method of observing this precept is by renting a seat in Church. In this community, 1hercfoi4e, in order to be fully qualified for admission into our r^nks, one must be paying pew rent. Sixth grade pupils in Dubuque county schools are to be asked to sign a pledge to the cud that the educational advancement df the young of that section of Iowa "shall be assured. This incentive has been planned by Joseph Flynn. ^rade. We further pi*omi*e that we will make every effort to ai lend school regularly and thai we will conscientiously prepare for my tests that may be givpn by the county superintendent." As a recipe for bringing back to religion "Those wlio cannot ac cept the miracles recorded ill Hie TiibhV Kiibbi Nathan K.rass of New York proposes that they be olVered frankly as ancient myths," and that all "scientific" doctrine contained in the Scrip tures be published separately as folklore." Rabhi Ivrass believes iltat in this way the "modern* who have been Alienated from religion because they cannot "shallow the_ miracles and other events eon Iratlieted by scientific invest iga lor.V and teachers" can be won back to belief in jod: The Kabbi made this statement to a gather ing of .lews called together 1o raise funds for additions to the Hebrew Vuion College of Cincin nati. in which students are pre pared to occupy the pulpits of American Reformed Jewish syna gogues. Is this a sample of. mod ern Jewish teaching.' Or is it but e a i 's personal view.' -A 'ArchlVi^hbp Hayes 'in his pastor al' says: '"The Ohrist-Obild did n6t stay His own entrance into this mortal tue because His moth er was poor, rooflcss'and without provision for the morrow. Chil dren troop down from Heaven be cause Qod wills it. He alone has the right to stay their coming, while He blesses at will some homes with many, orhers with but few or with none a' all. They come in the one Way ordained by His Wisdom. Woe to those who degrade, pervert, or do violence to the law of, nature as fixed by the eternal decree of God Him self! Kven though some little angels in the flesh, through the moral, menial or physical deform ity of parents, may appear to human eyes,hideous, misshapen, a. blot on civilized society, we must not lose sight of this Christian thought that under and within such visible malformation there lives an immortal soul to be saved and glorified for all eterni ty* among the blessed in Heaven." A I A O E N O E KNIGHT OF CHRIST. Among the important anniver saries-of the year just closed.-is that of the martyred President of Ecuador. Garcia Moreno. Usher ed into this Avorld on Christmas eve, just one hundred years ago. his life span of some fifty years was replete with valorous deeds for God and country. His death at the hand of an assassin evoked deep sorrow throughout the world Jand county superintendent. The pledge: "Wcy the undersign ed pupils, promise on our honoi as American citizens, that we will do all in our power to remain in school until we finish the eighth it sent the sainted Pope Pius IX into mourning. Moreno was one of those rare types: rare to-day as ever in the history of men. Possessed of ex traordinary talents, of indomi table courage and profound reli gious and patriotic convictions, his whole life was molded upon a plan that'places Wtfn in a niche by himself. Born in Guayaquil, Ecuador, his youth witnessed the turbu lence and revolutionary upheav al that tore his country asunder. Although founded and civilized by Catholic priests and leaders, this southern land was a prey to the bitterest foes of the Church. Rabid and fanatical enemies of Church and State sought the utter extinction of the faith of a people. Moreno was not only highly en dowed by nature in an intellectual sense, he was also deeply imbued with the spirit of Catholicity. Reaching back in his ideals to the noble and elevated standards of old Spain, he held honor of more account than all worldly possessions, while his mental at tainments easily placed liinTln the forefront of his nation's leaders. Entering the political field with the enthusiasm of a Roosevelt, he soon became an acknowledged leader of the Catholic and patriot ic party. Xo problem of human or national interest escaped his attention. His courage in meet ing enemies of his faith or his country, knew no bounds or com promise. When the tyrant, Fran co, sought to overrun his beloved Ecuador, Moreno gathered a strong force and st riking quickly and with powerful stroke, he oust ed the despot and was acclaimed another Washington. Three times did his grateful countrymen choose him for president. His ad ministration was marked by i spirit founded on that of the Gos pel. Fervent and devout in his private life, a daily Communicant, lie knew how to raise the moral VTid political standard of Ecnadoi until it became one of the best kuown iiatij)iisfin the world. MJarcia Moreno'lmd one special devotion, it was love and venera tion for the Papacy. Although in sistent in his demands for adjust recognition of his government and country, he looked to the Holy Father as to the chosen guide and leader of'tlie^ nations. As a writ er adds,..'Ala '(Jarcia Moreno, the heart was equal to t)ie head. He was incorruptible, tialf of his presidential salary he "returned to the treasury. The T\idians were protected, the poor were freed from the burden of excessive tax ation, and in hours of need, shel tered in the hospitals and asy lums which he had built. Tiider Garcia Moreno, Ecuador enjoyed its Golden Age." Moreno's sterling Catholic faith and his thorough love of country gave no peace 1o the sworn ene mies of all religion and loyalty. He soon became a marked man. the target of a murderous band A CATHOLIC MENACE? Jt is amusing at times to read of the danger to the Republic from the ever-plotting and schem ing Catholics. Somehow or other, the very word. Catholic, seems to send cold shivers down the spine of certain people who would think nothing of playing with wild animals, but who, involuntarily, frown at that word. Xo facts ever are: alleged to justify the goose flesh. since no facts exist. It is just a case of popular supersti tion: but it's hard 1o down. Statistics fnrnish interesting mental gymnastics for those who seek facts, and who need intel lectual exercise. Statistics are stubborn things, utterly devoid of sentiment and partiality: they are like the compass. A patient and inquisitive collec tor of such data gives us the num ber of Catholics in our two houses of Congress. These figures arc en lightening. They show that there are but eighteen Catholics in the Lower House and six in the Sen ate—1* out of 4:!f, and 6 out of 96. That means 24 Catholics out of 5'M members in the halls of legislation. In other words, Ave lnu'C oik* member in every 22. Whereas in population Ave have at least one Catholic for every six persons in the country. Is that a menace If so, it would be rather a menace to us: but we are not afraid, Ave trust our fellow citizens. Here are the figures tak en from a recent survey: Out of a total of members, 21 are non-members and Church affiliation of 0* could not be as certained. The following are the Church affiliations: United Brethren. Mormons, In dependent. Mennonite, Dutch Re formed and Evangelical have 1 member each. There are 2 lTni versalists. There arc members of the Quaker Church and 3 of the Jewish Church. FiATe Unita rians, 10 Disciples. 10 Lutherans, 11 Christians, IS ('atholies, 2:5 Con gregationalists, 3f» Episcopalians. 29 Baptists, i(i Presbyterians and 09 Methodists. In the Senate the survey show ed that, out of a total of 96 Sena tors. the Church affiliations of 23 were unknown and only 4 Avere non-mcnibers. There Avas 1 Pro testant Episcopalian. 1 Christian. The Lutherans, Dutch Reformed, Unitarians and Mormons have 2 members each. There are 6 Catho lics and 6 Baptists. 7 Congrega tionalists, 11 Presbyterians, 12 Episcopalians and 17 Methodists. It is avcII to have real facts Avhen discussing possibilities in auAr line. HONORING HIS NAME. TIIE CATHOLIC nUMXflN. JANUARY 7, 1922 ular heroes and benefactors. Age alter age witnesses'the out pom ing of national gratitude and praise for a Washington, a Lin coin, a liien/.i, a Wellington, a Daniel OVonnell. Each country bows in reverence to those who defended it from the invader, who sacrificed in war or in peace for ils welfare. Quickly would be lie cried down who would dare be smirch the fair name of any na tional champion. Tn time of civ ic stress, when men's hearts and feelings beat high, A'iolenoe in who masqueraded under the pro-(stantly would attend him who tection of a certain powcrfiil so ciety. The infamous Kayo was picked lo do the dastard deed. Moreno had attended .Mass on the feast of the Transfiguration, Aug ust b, 1*75. 'Later he made a visit lo ,I ho Blessed Sacrament in the cathedral. As he emerged from the sacred edifice, the murderer. Rayo, crying out, ''Die, destroyer of liberty." plunged a dagger into the President who fell murmur ing, "God does not die." Garcia Moreno wa» a martyr to his failh as well as for his icoun try. He carried his religious principles of .justice and truth into every branch of 1 he government, and his people benefited im measurably by his (idelily to the Highest standards of Christian fairness. His deal It sealed a life given over entirely to the prac tice of stern virtue and patriotic endeavor. The dagger of the as sassin typified the only enemies Garcia. Moreno made—foes of God and man—and a whole nation mourns while it honors him to this dav. scorned a name held in venera tion by a people. Today the world seems to have forgotten Jesus and His benefae lions to the race. His sacred ti tle is bandied about on llie lips of the profane, the vulgar, the rep robate. His Name is a by word to the blasphemer, a pet curse to the thoughtless. And yet that same Jesus is He avIio one day will pass sentence on every idle word, let alone eyery insult to His memory. Is it avcII. from even a selfish policy, llnis to an tagonize and anger the Judge in adATanee of the terrible decision that He surely will render on His enemies .' The man who wuiild strike down Ihe scoffer of his mother will glibly utter the holy Name of a God as a mere filler in his filthy talk. It is consider ed bad form to "swear in the presence of ladies." but perfect ly correct to '-blaspheme in the sight of the omnipresent God. The chief occupation of the damn ed in hell is to curse their God: why do so many men today go into training for thai infernal, eternal avocation .' If the holy Name of .lesns is profaned in conversation, it is no less desecrated in the halls of learning, in the pages of modern books, in the teaching of so-call ed professors. 'His very divinity is not only called into question but blatantly denied and ridi culed. Satan and his cohorts curse and tremble, but they be lieA'e: our latter day men of sci ence curse without trembling or believing. With them it is not- a question of ignorance: it is down right rebellion against reason. Can avc not hear the echo of that frightful threat of the Most High: I shall laugh at. them in their de struction AND LUTHER STARTED ALL. IT One of thV pl^st's of' ''progress'' for-which 1b^'world thanks1 Mar tin Luther is the prevalence of divorce. Vndpr the old (and modern) .-Catholic "tyranny".the Avords, "Until death do us part,"' meant precisely, imtil death do us part. Luther, however, claimed thai they merely signified a ficti tious bond. In other Avoi'ds, lie was strong for trial marriage, in spite of the command of God Al mighty Himself-.- *To-day the Avorld is reaping tlnr fruits of such a mockery, in broken homes, quasi orphans, shattered morals and in dividual shipwrecks by the mil lion. Marriage Avas ahvays a eon- tract, bilateral in its nature and obligations today it is merely uni lateral, a partnership dissoluble at the Avill of either party. Formerly matrimony \v'as concerned chiefly in hearts and love to-day it deals in caprice and bodies. The record of the past year iii Chicago is typical of the country over. In tAvehe months in that city, eight thousand homes Avere broken up by. divorce. The cliil dren of those homes have learned to despise on3 or other of their parents. Love- and affection, ual lira I lo a child, ha.ve been smoth ered in youthful breasts, ami the seeds of future divorce have been soavii therein.1 Xiike father, like soil. Judge McDonald, a Catholic, points out a salutary lesson in these figures. He states that sin is the underlying cause of this devastation, and he indicates the ijiiartet of evils that are respon sible. The A'iolation It is not strange that the Name of Jestis should be held in high esteem. This Name means Sa vior, and the very term itself eon notes the duty of gratitude. For such an one is a hero or a per sonage of worth who has brought safety tt those in distress, •le sns. hoAVCA'er, is a Savior of a far higher type. He saved lis not from mere material death: that surely would call for tributes of gratefulness. ITe is the one avIio effected our salvation after ship wreck. He snatched the souls of fallen men from the abyss Avhitli er they Avere hurrying. He placed in their hands the means of se curing restoration to the coun try Avhicli they had forfeited. He wiped put the decree launched by a new athletic stadium for George, God against a sinful race, and He ioavii University, lo cost about cleanscd the record in His blood. ftOO, and which will have a sealing of the laAvs of God combines Avith llie easy laws of man, and the result is the sev erance of a bond Avhicli God de clared knows not separation. But God is not mocked, and that bond still remains, and the consequences of tampering with it are upon the head of the guilty. "The mills that grind out the grist of divorce decrees have never stopped this year,'' said Judge McDonald. "There has been no lack of business and no unemploy ment in this matter. "Same old reasons: Drunken ness, cruelty, desertion, and infi delity. Always the same. The Avar, moonshine, the depression in business, the desire for easy living and little Avork, all have helped. Everything helps, nothing hin ders."' The average is about 100 divorc es a week in each of the two courts of concurrent jurisdiction.

AY. C. Xews Service.) The spiritual testament of Cardinal Duhourg, Arili bishop of lien nets, who died two months ago, has just been made public. It contains some very interesting passages: "The devotion to the Sacred Heart,' he says, "has been, with the devotion of the Holy Rosary, the double great de\'o1ion of my life, in conformity with my episcopal moito, to'which I believe 1 have always been faithful: Per ma trem ad cor Filii (Through the Mother to the Heart of 1he Son), and one of the graces which most excite my grati tude to Ood is thai since my entrance into the big seminary up to the present day, that is to say for more than sixty years, He has never sent me a sick ness or extreme fatigue which has prevented me for one day —one single day -from saying my rosary, which have always considered an obligation All that 1 have-been, all that I have done in the course of my life, all that I have received from Cod'for my body my soul, for my prieslly and episcopal ministry, I attribute solely to this daily and faithful recitation of my rosary."

DIVORCES GROW WHILE RATE DECLINES.: BIRTH Trustworthy vital statistics for Ger many, just published, show that while the birth-rate is declining and the mor tality is increasing, there is consider abie rise-in the number of divorces This reduction of the birth-rate is problem lhat affects Catholics as well as other'Christians. Even before the World War ther was a steady diminution of natality but this has been accelerated as a con sequence of moral and economic con ditions produced by the great conflict In 1900,-the ratio of births to each 1,000 females between ir» and r»0 years of asp was 146.1. In 1906, the rttfio was 182.6, and in 1912, it was 110.6.* BISHOP RYAN'S Jill EE BISHOP ASKS PRAYERS AS ONLY JUBILEE GIFT. The golden jubilee of the.^rdinatlon cf the Right Rev. James Ryan, Bishop of Alton, 111., was celebrated without ceremony, in keeping with the wishes of thai prelate, who requested of his pricstr, only thai they remember liini in their prayers. Bishop -Ryan was ordained by the Right Rev. William McCloskey, at lie Cathedral in Louisville, 1871. He was consecrated Bishop of Alton in 188S Due to his labors, the diocese is now one Of the best organized in the United States. It has 161 churches and mis sions, 67 of which have parochial schools, with an aitendance of mor than 10,ftf»0 children. Recently, a new $500,000 orphan home was completed The diocese has about 87,000 Catholics In a public address delivered in thc Pcople's Auditorium of the Vienna ownhall, Cardinal Piffl took occasion condemn the shameless work of proselytism being carried on by Amer ican sects in spite of the expost.ula ion.s of ihe Catholic press of the Unit- Stuics and Austria. These seHarics are continuing with unscrupulous boldness to encourage aposlacies among ihe wretched inhab itants of Austrian towns to barter ii-tuals and clothing for the souls of the poverty-stricken masses. It was for this reason that Cardinal Piffl fell obliged to lake a firm, open stand ,ainst their heartless activities. "As your Bishop I should like to turn your minds toward a new immi ment danger which threatens the Catholics of Austria, namely, the propaganda of foreign sects," said the "ardinal Archbishop. "This propagan a is now assuming considerable pro portions. In every district of Vienna, eligious circles have been formed by \dventists, Baptists and Methodists, who, by •love-offerings' and onesided and erroneous interpretations of the Scriptures, are trying to win the Cath olic population to their false doctrine. "I, as your Bishop, can riot warn with sufficient imprcssiveness against these false prophets. Who would have the hardihood to believe that God's mercy would permit, humanity to re main foreighipen hundred year in cr or mil ila man from America or F.jig land iiirned up to bring the truth?" At an Advonlists' Congress held in Vienna recently, this city was called the center for the propagation of the 'faith" in Europe. There was adopted resolution directing llie establish ment of a ministerial office in every district of Vienna. Adventist minis ters go from house to hoilsp and glory in the crowds lhat flock to Ihem. Tracts and gifts of money come to Vienna by way of Hamburg, which seems to be the European harbor for be Adventist sectary aitd until now he clearing house for the Adventist propaganda.

Under these new conditions the Work of the Catliolie Church in Haiti, which conducts for the Haitian Gov ernment practically all the education al institutions of the country, will continue under favorable auspices, provided that American Catholics promptly give their Haitian co-re ligionists that substantial measure of moral and material assistance which the devoted Hierarchy of Haiti has ic qnested from the Church in the United States.
