We who possess this true faith, de- livered to the saints, realize now as we have always realized that God must come first in the affairs of man- kind; that there can be no harmony on earth and peace, unless it be tuned by the notes from heaven, given to the world on the first Christmas morn.

In the past 150 years, who has (lone more for humanity politically and otherwme than thse United States ? At what sacrifice 'has libetry found a more noble refuge ?

But to return to what ] said before; the great glory of our country has been, that it is a religious country, that God is the Abbiter of its destines, and that His Providence over it, is revered For this do we praise and thank Him this Holy Night. Secure in Christ. Although the danger of the times are serious let us, Catholics especial- ly, with those principles of the divine :faith which we possess, feel sure that if we prove loyal to these principles, which are coming to us from Christ to Pete)', the issue will bc favorable. Let us feel sure that in spite of the storms of discontent that will roar about us. we shall merge, safe and secure, if Cilrist be our leader, His Spirit, our guide. "De() Dulce, Nil Desperan- dum." Officers of the Mass After the chanting of the Credo, the Bishop proceeded from the throne to altar and began the Canon of the Mass, assisted by the following of- cers:.Arch-priest, Rt. Rev. Monsignor Tobin; deacons of honor, Fathers Paul and Leo, Benedictine Fathers from Subiaco College; deacon and sub- deacon of the Mass, Fathers Kellm and Fisher of Little Rock College; croyier and mitre bearers, Seminar- ians Fletcher, Gaffney, McBarren and Tolti. Present in the sanctuary were Fathers McDermott and Manley, the latter chaplain of the Third Division at Camp Pike. The ceremonies were in charge of Very Rev.

Even a small donation from every one of the 20,000,000 Catholics of the United States would provide generously for fhe glorious edifice. Our Holy Father has donated a splen- did full-size mosaic of Murlio's Im- maculate Conception as his gift to tile High Altar of the Church, and the Catholic clergy of the United States are associating themselves with him in erecting the hig'h altar. Over one thousand priests haw. • already made generous donations to the 'high altar fund, and doubtless the entire priest- hood will soon be represented in this great common work of Catholic faith. Plus X was deeply interested in the project when it was laid before bim in 1914 by Cardinal Gibbons and in a special audience granted to Bishop Shahan, he made a very gracious do- nation saying that he owed so much to Mary Immaculate that he had both the right and the duty to further her tonor and glory before the,- whole world. In his Letter to Cardinal Gib- bons, he expressed the wish that the Catholics of the United States would soou contribute the means through which should arise this masterpiece of religious architecture. And ]3ene- diet XV, with equal devotion to Mary Immaculate, writes to Cardinal Gib- bons and all the American bishops: "Let the good work be pushed rapidly to completion, and for that purpose let every one who glories in the name of Catholic contribute more abund- antly than usual to the collections for this Church." He urges the Children of Mary in every parish and the Rosary societies to aid in the great work, and ask all our Catholic wom- en to take a special interest in pro- moting the building of lhe National Shrine "since they are committed to the promotion of the glory of Mary Immaculate in proportion as it re- bounds to t'he glory of their own sex."
