PAGE EIGHT THE GUARDIAN, FEBRUARY 19, 1938 A T o] Christ In Picture And Story .... By Father Francis THE GREAT GIFT OF again. Her Medal is Miraculous. " OUR LADY As a little child Zoe had always prayed to our Lady. She loved our Lady very much. She had asked her guardian angel to please ask our Lady to come down on earth to see her. Then she became a Sister of Charity, as her sister Mary Louise had done before her. he was Sister Catherine. As she knelt in the seminary she prayed again that our Lady might come. That night, in the chapel, Sister Catherine actually saw and talked to our Lady. Then our Lady came again and Sister Catherine saw a vision of a beautiful medal. *** Sister Catherine knev that she had a big secret. It was a secret that belonged to God and our Lady. There was only one person to whom she could tell it. And that was Father Aladel. Sister Catherine knew that Father Aladel would have to have the beautiful Medal of our Lady made. ] So she went to him. She told him all about what she had seen. She told him that our Lady want- ed him to have the Medal made. Father was much surprised. But he did not have our Lady's Medal made right away. One day Sister Catherine was praying to our Lady. She said: "It isn't my fault, Blessed Mother, that your beautiful medal isn't made yet! I told Father, but he has not done anything about it." Our Blessed Lady said: "He will have my Medal made. He loves me very dearly. He would not do anything that I do not like." And so at last the beautiful Medal was made. Two thousand of them! We shall call it the Miraculous Medal." And all this was true. Our Lady was working many miracles through her beautiful Medal. She was making the sick well again, and the bad people good. A miracle is something very great that God does, or that He lets His Mother or the Saints do. A miracle is something very won- derful. Our Lord worked many miracles when He was on earth. He raised the dead to life. Only God can do that. He fed thou- sands of people with five little loaves of bread and two little l fishes. Only God could do that. God let our Lady work many, many miracles for the people who loved her Medal. The sick get well, the bad get good, Just as our Lady said they would.

Nuns Aid Firemen As Blaze Levels Home for Aged West Conshohocken, Pa., Feb 14 (E). -- The century-old structure known as St. Joseph's Home for the Polish Aged, near here, is to- day a charred hulk as the result of a five-hour blaze which des- troyed the upper three floors and caused injury to 11 firemen and a priest. The rescue of the dozen aged inmates of the home and a large part of the efforts to subdue the blaze were contributed by the 10 Sisters of the Holy Family of On the front side was our Lady Nazareth, who, after bringing standing on the world. She was their aged charges to safety bat- holding out her hands. Rays of tled side by side with firemen to light were falling from them. :urb the engulfing fire. It was Around her were the words: "O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee!" On the back was the letter M, the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary and the Cross. Around all these were twelve stars. These Medals were given to all the Sis- ters. They were told to give them to the poor and sick and little children. Sister Catherine kissed hers again and again. "Yes, we must give everybody a Medal," she said. "Everybody must love our Lady more and more. And our Lady will give to those who wear her beautiful Medal, very many graces." A medal like this you shall make. And all should wear it for my sake. Just at this time, very many people in Paris were quite sick. Many were dying. The doctors were not able to save all the peo- ple. The Sisters of Charity went to see the poor, sick people. They put the beautiful Medal of our Lady around their necks. They said to the people: "Our Blessed Mother brought this Medal from Heaven. She gave it to one of our Sisters. Our Lady says that you should wear it around your neck. You should say the little prayer on it. If you wear this Medal for love of our Lady, she will give you great graces. "Say the little prayer on it with me." Then the poor, sick person woulcl say the little prayer. "0 Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee." Our Lady heard their prayers. The sick people who wore her Medal got well. Those who had been very bad became good. They were sorry for the4r sins. They went to Confession. Their black Souls were made white again. They received Holy Communion. Our Lord came into their hearts. They were very good from that time on. Everybody said: "What a beautiful Medal! Our Lady gives great graces to those who wear it. "We will wear it all the time;" They said, too: "Our Lady is working many miracles through her beautiful Medal. She makes sick people well. She makes bad people good uch heroic work which averted the destruction of the first floor chapel and thus enabled the Rev. Boleslaw Zywicki, chaplain, to save sacred vessels and vestments. Father Zywicki was later injured fighting the blaze. He had braved the smoke and heat to save the Blessed Sacrament and furnishings of the chapel. Calmly, however, he set up a makeshift altar in the garage building and celebrated the usual Sunday Mass there later in the morning. The Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth took over the build- ing 25 years ago and until July, 1936, operated it as an orphanage for Polish boys. It then became a home for the aged.

Thus would our Lord excuse those who so bitterly pursued Him for His new ways and doctrines, and with the same spirit of gentleness must all those be animated who would lead souls from the paths of sin and error to the ways of truth and virtue. 5.

D. Other priests continued the work, but the real apostle of the Ger- man people is St. Boniface, who was martyred in the year 755. Today there are upwards of 63,- 000,000 people in Germany. Of these there are approximately 22,- 000,000 Catholics (about the same number as there are in the United States). At present the Catho- lics are being persecuted by the government. The Pope has urged the Catholics of Germany to be faithful to their religion even if it means suffering and death. Model airplane building is sport that all boys like. I am sure the boys of Germany spend many a happy hour at this hobby. Wouldn't the Boy Jesus enjoy a visit with His German friends? See how well you can color the :picture.

Canapes and French or Italian appetizers are very much alike. A canape is a small open toasted sandwich, that is, a slice of bread toasted on one side, filling placed on the untoasted side, then gar- nished. Left-over vegetables, meat or fish can be utilized in preparing the filling. Canapes are very eco- nomical, easy to prepare, and start a dinner off well. They give an individual touch to a luncheon or dinner that can not be achieved in any other way. A cocktail as served at the first course at dinner is not really con- sidered a beverage. It is in the same category as soup, and acts on the stomach as an appetizing stim- ulant. Cocktails are made usually of mixed fruits, fruit juices or fish, with a cocktail sauce served over them. The most popular cock- tails served today are oyster and tomato juice cocktails. Canapes, appetizers or cocktails should be on the service plates when the family sits down to.din- ner or luncheon, and when served at a formal meal a small paper doily is placed under the canape or the glass containing the cock- tail. The following recipes con- cern pretty canapes, appetizers or cocktails. Cheese and Olive Canapes Cut white or whole wheat bread in % inch slices and cut in cir- cles with a cookie cutter. Toast on one side. Cover with cream cheese moistened with mayon- naise dressing. Put a slice of a stuffed olive in the center and a border of finely chopped stuffed olives around the edge. Oyster Cocktail 6 small raw oysters 1 tbp. tomato catsup 1-4 tsp. lemon juice 1 drop tabasco sauce Salt 1-2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce Mix the catsup, lemon juice (or vinegar), tabasco sauce, salt and Worcestershire sauce together. Place oysters in a cocktail glass or sherbert glass and pour the sauce on them. Green peppers from peppers from which the insides have been cut are attractive to serve oyster cocktails in, especi- ally for a St. Patrick's day party. A cocktail glass full of cocktail sauce can be placed in the center of a bed of ice and oysters served on the halves of the oyster shells the same as serving oysters on the half shell. Clams are prepared and served the same as oysters. There are several good cocktail sauces sold on the market that can be used if preferred. Fruit Cocktails Equal quantities of canned peaches, pineapples, pears, ba- nanas, oranges cut up and mixed together and served in cocktail or sherbert glasses. The mixed fruit must be thoroughly chilled before serving. The fruit can be varied according to what is in season. Berries when in season can be added. Canned fruit cock- tail is very good with sliced ba- nanas added. Peach Tapioca 1 can sliced peaches 1-3 cup quick-cooking tapioca 1 qt. milk scalded 1 tbp. butter 1-2 cup sugar 14 tsp. salt 1 egg yolk 1 tsp. vanilla 1 egg Add the tapioca, sugar and salt to the milk and cook in a double boiler 5 to 10 minutes, or until tapioca is clear, stirring frequent- ly. Pour a small amount of tapi- oca mixture over the slightly beaten egg yolk, stirring vigorous- ly; then turn this back into the double boiler and cook until thick- ened. Add the butter and vanilla fold in the stiffly beaten egg white, pour over the drained peaches and chill. Serve garnished with whipped cream or marshallow, or a maraschino cherry. The juice from the peaches can be used in a fruit cocktail or gelatine des- :sert. Baked Firman Haddle Wash the smoked firman haddie, put flesh side down in dripping pan, cover with cold water, let stand on back of the stove 10 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water.
