PAGE EIGHT THE GUARDIAN, JANUARY 8, 1938 & A & MEDAL STORY .... F .Tim Dng4/ten d ClmdtT. _ ' ...... Emmhsburg, Md_. THE LITTLE DOVE OF LADY Mary Louise was very glad to OUR have little Zoe go with her. Around her head in the morn- ing light, The little doves wreathed a halo bright. The morning was cool and quiet. Soft gray clouds filled the sky. Little pink flowers covered the bushes by the big farm house. On the kitchen steps sat a little girl. She had a big apron tied around her neck. On her lap there was a big pan. In the pan was a cabbage. The little girl had a knife in her hand. She was cutting the cabbage in little pieces. he heard a voice calling: "Zoe, Zoe, have you fed the doves?" The little girl called back: "No, Mary Louise, not yet." A minute later a tall girl came out the doorway. She had dark hair and eyes. She looked very much like Zoe. But Zoe's eyes were gray and her'brown hair held many golden lights, like lit- tle sunbeams. Mary Louise was holding a pan of corn. She put the pan of corn on the steps. Then she took Zoe's apron off and put the pan of cabbage in the kitchen. "Come, little sister," she said. "We are going to feed the doves." Zoe loved to go with Mary Lou- ise to feed the doves. The doves were quite gentle and not at all afraid. Mary Louise would let Zoe fill her hands with the grain and throw it to the birds. She would call to the birds, and soon they would be flying all around her. They would eat right out of her hands. "There," said Zoe. She threw down the last handful. "O Mary Louisel Watch them fly. This is the way they dol" Zoe stood On her toes and moved her arms up and down She was laughing. "Oh, you can fly," she said. Zoe's eyes got big. "How?" she asked. "Every little prayer that you say is just one of those little doves. It flies on shining white l wings right up to' Heaven. If you say many little prayers, then there are as many flying up to Heaven as there are does in front of yOU now." "Oh," said Zoe. Her eyes were even bigger than before. Mary Louise put her arm around her little sister, and they went back to the kitchen. Not long after this Zoe's dear mother became very ill. Soon she died. Poor little Zoe cried and cried. Mary Louise tried to make her feel better, but she had a hard time doing so. Once she found Zoe crying on the steps all by herself. She was saying over and over: "I haven't any mother. I haven't any mother." Mary Louise took her in the house. She led her to a very large and very beatiful picture of our Lady. She wiped Zoe's eyes. She said: "Zoe, dear, it is true that God has taken our dear mother. But God has not left us without some one to take her place. Seel There is a picture of God's own Moth- er. She is ours, too. She is ours, too. She loves you very, very dearly. Talk to her, and ask her to take dear Mother's place." Mary Louise then went softly out of the room. Zoe looked into the beautiful eyes of our Lady. They seemed to smile at her, She stopped cry- ing, She felt that our Lady was waiting for her to speak. She said: "Blessed Mother, please take Mother's place." And this wee prayer, like a lit- tle white dove with shining wings, flew straight up to our Lady's heart. Mother of God, please be mine, too. For oh! how much I do need you. $ * $ After this Zoe's father and Mary Louise saw a change in little Zoe. She was more gentle. She was kinder to her little brothers. She! asked Mary Louise if she could go to Mass every morning with her. They used to get up early and walk down the beautiful country road to the little church. The birds were just waking. The sky ! was getting pinker .and brighter. Zoe used to love this quiet morn- ing walk. She and Mary Louise would say their Rosary as they walk along. In the little church, she would kneel, oh, so quietly, at Mary Louise's side. She loved to watch i Mary Louise pray. It had been Mary Louise who first taught her what Holy Mass meant. "Our Lord died on the Cross to save our souls. The Holy Mass is just the same. Our Lord on the Altar offers Himself to His Eter- nal Father for us. You see, all of us could not be with the Blessed Mother and St. John when they stood a the foot of our Lord's Cross on the First Good Friday. And so He has given us the Holy Mass. It is the same." Mary Louise taught Zoe to take care of the house. Of course, Zoe had to learn her lessons and go to school with her little brothers, too. She was never ,selfish or lazy. She could cook and bake bread. She could sew. She knew just what to do in the house. Mary Louise was proud of her. When evening came the child- ren would watch for their father. They used to run to meet him. Once Zoe's father said to her: "You are not so noisy as you used to be. You are as gentle and lovely as one of your little white doves." In Holy Mass God's grace is given; It helps us on our way to Heaven. Mary Louise had a secret, a big secret. She had had this secret a long time. Soon she would have to tell Zoe. At last a good chance came. The two girls were on their way borne from Mass. Zoe was a big girl now. Mary Louise said: "Zoe, do you love me very much?" Zoe said: "Mary Louise! you know there is nothing that I would not do for you." "Yes," said Mary Louise. "I know that you love me. But real love often means doing something very hard. Zoe, I am going away." Zoe was so surprised that she could not speak. "Yes," Mary Louise went on "I am going to be a Sister of Charity. You will have to take my place in the house. You will have to take care of father and our brothers." Big tears came in Zoe's eyes but still she did not say anything. Mary Louise went on talking. "You see, the Sisters of Charity give themselves to God. They do not spend all their lives praying m their homes. They go every- where to help the poor and sick (Questions on Page 4) 1. The Octave had its origin in 1908 under the Rev. Paul J. Francis, when he was a "Pro- Roman" Anglican of the Pro- testant Episcopal Church in the United States. Its first prac- tical result wasl the submission and receptiori of 17 members of the Society of the Atone- ment, of which Father Paul was the founder and superior, into the Catholic Church.

Pope St. Gregory saw some youngsters in the slave market in Rome. They were such attractive children that he asked where they came from. Some one said they were Angles and came from England. The.Pope remarked that they looked like Angels. To make the country whence thee children came Christian, the Pope sent St. Augustine as a mis- sionary in the same year. Au- gvstine preached the Gospel to the English people and they accepted it with joy. Soon all England was Catholic. In the 16th century the rulers of England decided that they and their countrymen would be Cath- olics no longer and so they es- tablished the Church of England sometimes called the Anglican or the Episcopal church. If the Boy Jesus were to visit England today He would enjoy: talking to the youngsters there. Especially would He be interested in the efforts made to bring the English people back to His Church. In England, there are now 37,- 354,917 people. Catholics num- ber 2,353,589. There are 5,017 priesls to minister to the Catholic people. See how well you can color the picture.

Mary Louise saw Zoo's tears. "Just think," she said. "It is a ovely thing to always wear blue and white--our Lady's colors. And I shall wear on my head a corn- ette, a white bonnet with big white wings. I shall be like one of your doves, Zoe. I shall fly to any one who needs my help."

Msgr, Hugh L. McMenamin, rector of the Cathedral, here. According to the plan, 80 mem- bers of the parish will take out 20-year $1,000 endowment policies with the Cathedral as beneficiary. Thus in two score years the Cathe- dral will be cleared of its $80,000 indebtedness. A change in the complexion of the neighborhood about the Cathe- dral from residential to commer- cial has made it impossible for the parish to clear the debt from ordi- nary revenues.

If there is no part-time maid to help at such a time, and you have no relatives to serve with you, it is better to ask a friend or two to help than to work so hard serving the refreshments, as they should be served, that you do not enjoy the party. Unless you have such con- veniences as an electric urn, it is very difficult to serve hot choco- late or coffee to a great number of people without having some of it become cold before the entire group is served. Even in the winter, cold beverages are popular and much more easily served. Hot chocolate and sandwiches are appetizing, but they have been very much overworked. A dainty salad, or attractive canapes, would hardly be more expensive or more trouble, but they would be much more enjoyable. Dainty chilled desserts in pret- ty cardboard containers, served with homemade cookies, are ex- ceptionally popular this year. Plain soda crackers with a piece of cheese on top and toasted in the oven are also tasty to serve with either a hot or a cold drink. Marshmallows placed on top of graham crackers, with a sprink- ling of 'cocoanu or chopped nuts, and melted in the oven, are a proven delicacy. Orange Tapioca 1 cups water 1-3 cup quick tapioca 1-2 cup sugar 1 cup orange juice 1 tbp. grated rind I-4 tap. salt 1-2 cup whipped cream Place water in top of double boiler and bring to boil; combine dry ingredients; add gradually to water and bring to a brisk boil stirring constantly. Place im- mediately over rapidly boiling water and cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from boil- ing water--mixture clears and thickens as it cools. When slight- ly cool, add orange juice and grated orange rind. Chill; fold in cup cream, whipped stiff, i Pile lightly in sherbert glasses. Just before serving, garnish with very thin /4-inch shreds of orange rind. Any brond of quick cooking tapioca can be used. It can be bought in packages or by bulk. Holiday Cookies 1 cups sugar 2 eggs 4 tsps. baking powder 1-2 cup shortening 4 tbps. milk 4 cups flour Flavoring Cream sugar and shortening to- gether until light, add the yolk of 1 egg and the whites of 2 eggs beaten until light, and 3 tbps. milk; mix well. Sift flour and baking powder and add 1 cup at a time. Idore flour may be needed as the dough must not stick to the board. Place half on a floured bakeboard and roll out 4 inch thick.' Cut- ter of choice may be used. Mix the yolk of the other egg with 1 tbp. cold milk and brush over top of cookies. Bake in a moderate oven 15 minutes. Flavoring of choice may be used; also chopped nuts, raisins, figs, cocoanut, cin- namon, etc. A variety of shapes may be used, such as the star, cres- cent, diamond, animal, etc. Turkey Sandwich Chop cooked turkey, or put through the meat grinder, with several stalks of celery with' a few sweet pickles; moisten with Mayonnaise dressing and mix well. Season with salt and pepper to taste and spread between thin ,slices of buttered bread; a slice of lettuce can be placed on top of the turkey spread if desired. Cut in triangles or squares and serve with cranberry jelly. Pot Roast A pot roast costs much less than a sirloin roast, but when cooked right is delicious. It requires long, slow cooking. Buy about 4 or 5 pounds of beef suitable for a pot roast--usually it is rolled already for cooking. Ask the butcher for a piece of suet. Wipe the roast with a cloth wrung out of cold water. Sear the roast on both sides on a real hot frying pan this retains the juice in the meat. When well seared, rub well with flour. Place a piece of the suet in the bottom of a Dutch oven, enamel baking dish or casserole beffore it is done, salt and pepper.
