He was buried at Holy Cross College which he instituted. Another distinguished member of the Fenwick family and an uncle to Mrs. Bartley's grand- mother was Bishop Edward D. Fenwick, cousin to Archbishop Fenwick of Boston. Bishop Ed- ward Fenwick was first Bishop of Cincinnati and founded there Anthenauem, now St. Xavier's College. He was ordained to the Holy Priesthood January 13, 1822 at St. Rose, Kentucky, by Bishop Flaget, and was in charge of the State of Ohio, Michigan territory that included Wisconsin, Illinois, In- diana and Kentucky. He built a cathedral and established the "Catholic Telegraph" in 1831, the oldest Catholic newspaper. While attending the unfortunate victims of an epidemic of cholera, Bishop Edward Fenwick was stricken with the disease in a stage coach while travelling to Wor- chester, and died September 26, 1832. It has been said of the Fen- wick family that "they gave many sons to the Church, and many sol- diers to the revolution and their names are honored in Church and State."

On the fiftieth anniversary of his or- dination to the Holy Priesthood, Interior Scene, Blessed Sacrament Church, Jonesboro Christmas Message of Pope Sounds Note o Hope; Gives Fioe Requirements.for Peace (By N. C. W. C. News Service) Vatican City.---Sounding a note of hope and faith in "the star" that has never faded, His Holiness Pope Plus XII Decem- ber 24 outlined the five points that must obtain as the basis of future world peace. Delivering his annual Christmas message, which was broadcast to the world by the Vatican Radio Station, the Sovereign Pontiff made it plain that he has been tortured and made sorrowful by the sufferings to which peoples have been subjected. Nevertheless he bids the world to hope. "We who live with you under the awful incubus of a scourge which is tearing at humanity for still a third year," said the Holy Father, "wish to speak to you from Our paternal hear on this vigil of the solemn hindrance or restriction of their economic resources, for the limi- tation or abolition of their natural fertility." "There is no place for that cold and calculating egoism which tends to hoard the economic re- sources and materials destined for the use of all to such an extent that the nations less favored by nature are not permitted access to them." "There is no place for a total warfare or for a mad rush to armaments." "There is no place for the per- secution of religion and of the Church." Warns of Deluded Peace The Sovereign Pontiff said "the destruction brought about by the present war is on so vast a scale that it is imperative that there be not added to it also the further ruin of a frustrated and deluded peace." Therefore, His Holiness added, "recapitulating and inte- grating what We have expounded on other occasions, We insist once again on certain fundamental con- ditions essential, for an interrm- Feast of Christmas, to exhort you to remain always strong m your faith and to share with you the comfort of that very real, superabundant and elevating hope and certainty which radiates from the Crib of the new-born Sav- iour." Responsibilities for Future Pope Pins said "great responsi- bilities for the future" weigh upon the shoulders of statesmen of the world, and that "we need men of courage, vision and conscience to reconstruct the world." Saying then that he spoke "with all the authority of Our Apos- tolic ministry," Pope Pins XII di- rected "the attention and the con- sideration of the entire world to the dangers which lie in wait to threaten a peace which is to be the well-prepared basis for a truly new order and which is to fulfill the expectations and desires of all peoples for a more tranquil fu- ture." Such'a new order, His Holi- ness declared, "must be founded on that immovable and unshak- September 25, 1872, a barbecue was given in his honor in Union County, Kentucky, which was his home county. It was attended by over 2,100 people, which was a able rock, the moral order," and remarkable crowd for that day.

"There is no place for open occult oppression of the cul- tional order which will guarantee for all pepoles a just and lasting peace and which will be a bounti- ful source of well-being and pros- perity." At present, the Holy Fabler sald, there is "an unrestrained impulse toward expansion and mere politi- cal advantage," with the idea that l "external compulsion overrules l the norms of right." Pope Pins, iui his program, looks forward to the Beautiful Crib for Holy Rosary Church Stuttgart.The great feast of Christmas was again fittingly and joyl'ully observed at Holy Rosary Church beginning with midnight Mass, Christmas Eve. The choir began rendering carols at 11:45 o'clock and continued until mid- night. The altar boys and girls robed in angelic costumes march- ed' in procession from the school to the church. A High Mass was sung by the Kev. James G. Evans, pastor, as- sisted by members of the Holy Rosary choir, with Mrs. E. J. Holl- ihan, organist. The choir very beautifully sang Leonard's Mass m B flat. The altars were beautifully decorated with poinsettas by the Sisters of Holy Rosary School. The outdoor crib which occupies an attractive locatcrn at the south. of the church was made possible by the donations of the congrega- tion. The figures which adorn the stable were painted by Sister M. Bernardine, a Benedictine Sister, who is a member of the teaching staff of Holy Angels' Academy, Jonesboro. The figures are really an expression of masterful art and portray in vivid colors the characters who responded to the message of the angel and were among the first to adore the Christ Child born in a stable at Bethle- hem. The mountain and sky scene in the crib was painted by Vie- inn Wallworth and is deserving of much praise. Father Evans wishes to extend his feeling of appreciation to all who have responded so gelerously in preparing for this great feast. He extends his sincere wishes to all citizens of Stuttgart for a Itappy New Year. The Holy Rosary Altar Society distributed baskets of food to needy families and sent messages of cheer to shut-ins. of all," so that "no nation shall suffer unfairly," and there would be "no place for oppression," His Holiness declared that "a godless and anti-Christian con- ception of the state" is spreading "its vast tentacles" in some coun- tries, and, far from mitigating these evils, the war only accele- rates them. Saying that "the whole earth is awaiting the triumph of Christ," the Holy Father said the light of the Star of Bethlehem "is the light of comfort, of hope, of immovable faith, of life and of certainty in the ultimate triumph of the Re. deemer which will overflow as a torrent of salvation for the inter- mr peace and glory of all those: who, raised to the supernatural order of grace, will have receiv- ed the power of becoming children Characters in Christmas Play --Courtesy Holy Aegels' Echoes Appearing in the Christmas playlet "Unto the Least," were students of Holy Angels' Academy snapped in the above scene; left to right: Mildred Stwart, Dolores Gobel, Norma Massery, Gertrude' Martin, Marion Stemac, Jeanne Massery, Barbara Haleft, and Carol]n Frego. Classified 'Ad' Invites Persons To Parish Mission Greensburg, Pa. (EL--An un- usual means was employed by a parishioner of the Church of the Most Holy Sacrament here to invite attendance at a mission in his parish. He in- serted the following classified advertisement in the "Person. als" column of the Greensburg Morning Review, secular news- paper: "Would you like to have au intelligent insight into Chris- tianity? Attend the Mission at the Most Holy Sacrament Cath- olic Church. It is conducted by priests of the Society of the Precious Blood. Nightly this week,. 8 o'clock. Filfred S. Me- Keon." Peace Prayers 10ffered On New Year's Little Rock.--Catholics of the Diocese of Little Rock, joined citi- zens throughout the nation in fer- vent prayer on New Year's Day "asking forgiveness of our short- comings of the past, of consecra- tion to the tasks of the present, of asking God's help in the days to come." The call for prayer came from His Excellency, the Most Reverend Bishop, in answer to a similar ap- peal made by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in his Christmas Eve radio address to the nation. Following his above words of appeal, the President said, "We need His guidance that this peo- ple may be humble in spirit but strong in the conviction of the right; steadfast to endure sacri- fices and brave to achieve a vic- tory of liberty and peace." Catholics throughout the Dio- cese joined in extra public devo- tions, added to the prayers recited after each Mass for the intentions of victory for our armed forces and a just and lasting peace, which prayers were requested by Bishop Morris at the outbreak of hostili- ties in the Pacific. A TRIBUTE Not long ago we ran across a noteworthy passage in a book of short essays by a Protestant. He was wandering along one of our city streets and noticed a Catholic church. "Up the steps and through plain brown doors we went into the church, which was cool, quiet and in which were a few devout wor- shippers.Under the altar canopy wavered a small candle spark, and high overhead in the dimness,: were orange and scarlet beams from a stained window.A crystal chandlier hanging in the aisle ..w . f ,, . .... caught pale yellow tinctures of light. No Catholic church, where- ever you find it, the world over, is long empty; a man and a girl en- tered just as we went out." We like this tribute to our Cath- olic peoples' love for the Blessed Sacrament that brings so many daily to visit our Lord in the Tabernacle. What an edifying sight it is in the busy streets of our: great cities to behold men and women mounting the steps of our churches, stealing a few minutes from a short luncheon period to make an act of adoration, to thank our Lord for His many favors, to make 'The Way of the Cross,' to beg for help in time of trial or of sorrow! Let us strive to in- crease the numbers of such ador- ers and train our youth to let no day pass, if possible, without a short visit to our Eucharistic King. In studying the virtues of Christ there is no better Master than Christ Himself; no better place than at the foot of the tabernacle. Christ in the tabernacle is the living God, capable of hearing our prayers and answering them on the spot.
