B., to Fort Smith. He is ir Emphasizing "our duty to sup- port whole-heartedly" the Cath- olic Press, the Most Rev. Arthur J. Drossaerts, Archbishop of San Antonio, asks: "Where would we find the defense of the Church, where the refutation of errors and falsehoods and slanders, where the propagation of the Truth, with- out the valuable help of our Ca- tholic Press?" Safe and Reliable Guidance Asking "Is it not evident that nearly every one of our daily pa- pers fell for the insidious propa- ganda of Valencia?" Archbishop Drossaerts adds: "And if today they slowly begin to realize how cleverly their reporters and editors have been led by the nose by Stalin's agents, this change of tactics and views is due---no doubt about itto the valiant, persistent exposure by our Catholic Press." "It is quite evident," the Arch- bishop also says, "that in all the great questions agitating the world today, Atheism, Communism or sound Christian philosophy, the moral questions of divorce, birth control, etc., the only safe and re- liable guidance is to be found in our own Catholic Press." Importane of Press Month The Most Roy. Christopher E. Byrne, Bishop of Galveston, says in a letter to his priests and peo- ple that "no one can be Catholic- minded who will not read Catholic papers." "Our Catholic people and priests," Bishop Byrne also says, "pay great heed to the Church when she reminds them of May Mary's Month; of June---the Sac- red Heart Month; of November the Holy Souls' Month. God bless the piety and devotion of Catho- lics in these sacred times! But the Catholic Press Month is equal- ly as important, and as sacred and richly contributive to faith and morals." The Most Roy. Emmanuel B. Ledvina, Bishop of Corpus Christi says in part: Misleading Propaganda "In these times Catholic people, more than ever, need to be infor- ed of events that are transpiring throughout the world, and to un- derstand which, as well as coun- teract which, proper Catholic guidance is necessary; and the Ca- tholic Press is really the only medium that gives Catholic peo- ple' the proper information to guide them safely through the ever-growing confusion created and abetted by the godless agen- cies that are constantly active in their misleading propaganda." The Most Rev. Robert E. Lucey, Bishop of Amarillo, seizes upon Catholic Press Month as an op- portunity "to remind our people of the important part which a virile, accurate Catholic Press can have in the life of their Church and in their own individual lives." "With a sense of satisfaction, too," he adds, "do we remark the develop- ment of such a strong medium in our own country." The Bishop says the diocesan paper is of par- ticular value in his See, "because it serves as a link or bond of unity between the far-flung parishes of this vast mission field." Safeguarding Instruction Declaring that "today when ob- noxious propaganda is so esshnti- ally insidious" the Church must be on guard and the faithful must be ever watchful, the Most Rev. Ger- ald Shaughnessy, S. M., Bishop of Seattle, declares in a special Ca- tholic Press Month letter to his priests and people that "the press is the all-important source of safe- guarding instruction that will pro- Jonesboro, Ark. f GREENHAW ABSTRACT COMPANY Established 1882 510 Main Telephone 307 Jonesboro, Ark.

Saying to his priests, Religious and people that "most seriously and from my innermost heart I commend to you the Catholic Press," Bishop Shaughnessy adds: "Upon all who aid in furthering the ends of the Catholic Press I pray God's choicest blessings and the grace of an ever-increasing strong and sturdy Catholic faith that may ride triumphant over the storm of attack and propaganda that may assail it." Real Obligation to Support In an article specially-written i for Catholic Press Month, the Rt. Rev. Msgr. John A. Duskie, Chan- cellor of the Diocese of Concordia, says "one cannot be satisfied with mere praise and commendation" of the Catholic Press, but that every Catholic "has a real obligation to support this foremost weapon of Catholic Action." "With the prevalence of so many anti-Christian and irreligious practices and theories invading the sacred sanctuary of the home and family," Monsignor Duskie says, "the Catholic Press has unceasing- ly assailed these destructive on- slaughts of paganism." "The Ca- tholic Press is necessary in order to nourish our Catholic life," he adds.
