NOTABLE SCRIPTURAL STUDY WRITTEN BY FRANCISCAN PRIEST (By N. C. W. C. News Service) "Wshington, D. C., Jan. 2.The re- turn of Dr. Henry Hyvernat from Rome, following the completion of his work at the Vatican Library in con- nection with the Coptic manuscripts of J, Pierpont Morgan, has served to increase interest in notable scriptural works done recently by students of the Catholic University under the di- rection of Dr. Hyvemat and other dis- :: tinguished scriptural scholars. According to savants, few have been more interesting from the viewpoint of textual criticism, than that of the Roy. Dr. Joseph Francis Rhode, O. F. M., now stationed at the old mission Santa Barbara, whose dissertation on "The Arabic Versions of the Penta- teuch ib the Church of ]gypt," sub- mitred for the degree ok doctor of philosophy at the University, has been accorded a high place. In the course of the work, eighteen manuscripts of the Arabic and Copto-Arabic versions ' of the Pentateuch were examined, rep:- 'resenting the use of the Egyptian ,. ,' Church duringthe centuries which fol- lowed the conquest of the Nile Valley by Arabic-speaking Islam. From the eighth to the tairteenth century the Greek Septuagint version of.the 'Old Testament and the Coptic vernacular'version of the same were forced out of daily use by the Moslem " eonquerorB of the Christian Coptic !(: : Jpopulatfon. Critical students of the " )Id Testament text have made but little use of the Arabic versions, and i the work of Dr. Rhode promises to be of great value to these students, supplementing, as it does, hitherto vague and indirect knowledge of the Arabic versions of the Pentateuchs /" oft he Egyptian Church. Though he does not enter upon a etafled stucly of the age, origin and lations of the versions, Dr. many important collusions in his dissertation. New editions  of the modem Arabic Bible, beth Catholic d'Protestant; are ex- p0cted to profit by the exact and la- borious studies, for which Dr. Rhode utflized the Arabic scripture manu- scripts of the National Library at Paris, the Vatican, the Oxford and the Mueum libraries. In his in- Dr. Rhode acknowledged assisnee given him by two Cath- olic University professors, Dr. Franz Joseph Coin, professor of Sacred and Dr. Romanus Butin, professor of Somatic Lan- has lITTLE ORPHANS AT ST. JOSEPH'S MADE MERRY Sisters Grateful to Many Friends Who Help Them Make Cheerful the Christmastide--Card of Thanks for All. Christmas at the Orphanage Christmas at the St. Joseph's Or- phanage was indeed a merry one, a day of joy and happiness for all the children and dear old people, Sister, in fact for everyone in any way con- nected with the institution. Midnight Mass The day's festivities began with a Midnight Mass, celebrated by the Rev. Thee. Edwards,, all the Catholic mem- bers receiving Holy Communion. The chapel was beautifully decor- ated with fqrns 'and pink carnations, the Crib, the children's greatest de- light, was nestled amid a scene of pine and holly illumined with the many clored electric lights. All day the patter of little feet was heard go- ing to see "Little Jesus." Awaiting Santa Claus * After mass all were offto bed, to sleep and to wait with anxiously open eyes the coming of daylight in an- ticipation of the real pleasures of the day. A large Christmas tree beautully ornamented and heavily laden ith presents for all greeted their vision at the entrance in the morning. Fine Dinner A magnificent dinner,, the gift of the ladies of the Cathedral Aid, was prepared by our good Sister Vincent and four assistant girls, consisting of a bounteous supply of those viands, which though they may not come oft- en, when they do come appeal to the appetite and tickle the palate of the. ordinary boy and girl, was served at noon. Guest of Shriners In the afternoon the children were the guests of the Shriners. Here Santa met the little folks and, according to his custom, liberally gave gopdies and toys to each one. This brought us up to nightfall, when, after supper, all were happy and tired enough to retire for the night. We wish all our friends and benefac- tors a Happy New Year in the full- est sense of the word. We sincerely hope that the year 1923 will be for each and everyone replete with suc- cess, prosperity and happiness. A Word of Thanks To the many kind friends who re- membered the orphanage at Christmas time. manifesting their generosity through the medium of gifts for the children, as well as by contributions towards defraying of expenses of the institution, we wish here to give pub- lic expression of our thanks and deep gratitude. They certainly added to the happi- ness of our Christmas, and it is our fervent prayer that their charitable kindness may merit and receive the reward proniSed to those who per- form a work of charity in His name.
