QUESTION BOX IS BIG FEATURE OF PAULIST LECTURES OBITUARY FAXME L. BOERCM, -wife of Wil liam W. Boerum, died yesterday at her home, 245 French street, after a long illness. Besides her husband she is survived by one son and two daughters. A private funeral will be he-ld Monday afternoon at 2:30. Burial will be in Park cemetery. i The Question Box is proving1 a j most interesting and instructive fea ! ture of the lectures given by the i Paulist Fathers in Sacred Heart ' church. Myrtle avenue. Anybody. ' Catholic or non-Catholic, is at Hberty j to make use of it. All that is neces I sary is .to write out a question on : Catholic' faith or practice and place i it in the receptacle marked '"Question j Box" to be found at the door. Last evening someone asked if the doctrine of indulgences as taught by , the Catholic religion was not immoral. Father Burke pointed out that an in ! dulgence is not a permission to com I mit sin nor a remission of the eternal ; punishment due to sin but a remis , sion of the temporal punishment j which follows almost "c ery sin. The preacher claimed that temporal punishment was a doctrine amply I justified by an appeal to Scripture'. Another questioner wanted to know I Why the Blessed Virgin occupied euch a large place in Catholic worship. Fa'Jier Burke explained that the Catholics did not pay the same adora tion to the Blessed A'irgin as -they did to God. He said Cathclics honored the Mother of God because God hon ored her first. Catholics iove the mother of Cod because Christ loved her first. Far from derogating from the worship due to Christ the lecturers contended that the love of Marv actually contributed to an increase of love and devotion and loyally to the principles and person of Jesus Christ. Taking for his text the wofMs found in the 26th Chapter of St. Matthews' gospel "This is My Body: This is My Blood," the Paulist's theme was the Blessed Euchatbrist. He stated clear ly and concisely that Catholic church taught that Jesus Christ left His real body, blood and soul and divinity un der tha appearance of bread and wine. This doctrine is supported by a wealth of Script .ral text which to be understood must be interpreted as tn? Catholic church interprets it. It is supported too by an appeal to Chris tian tradition. The Eucharist is no more memorial it is the living Christ. Father Burke then went on to point out what an asset to the Christian church was this teaching and what a help and consolation and strength to the Christian people. Tonight's lecture will be on "Mar riage and Divorce." Sunday morning at mass -a sermon will be preached on the subject of "The Mass." Sun day evening the topic for the last mis sion lecture will be "Why I Am a Catholic." Advertise in The Times RADFORD B.
