(N.CW.C) Priests' Saturc/ay Our Holy Father has given his approval to the plan advanced by the Superior General of the Salvatorian Fathers, asking God for priests. The plan is this: The laity should offer the Saturday after the First Friday of each month to the Savior, through the hands of Mary, for the sanctification of all the priests and students for the priesthood throughout the world. Saturday should be given wholly and entirely to Him; Holy Mass, Holy Communion, all prayers, labors, sacrifices, joys and sorrows. What can't be done on this day, should be done on Sunday. Priest's Saturday should be as widely observed as First Friday. Our Holy Father, Pope Plus XI said, "We heartily praise and bless the work . . . We repeat, the thing pleases us. We praise and bless it heartily." LET US PRAY FOR PRIEST'S SATURDAY Divine Savior Jesus Christ, Who hast entrusted the whole work of Thy redemption, the welfare and salvation of the world, to priests as Thy representatives, through the hands of Thy most holy Moth- er, and for the sanctification of Thy priests and candidates for the priesthood I offer thee this pres- ent day wholly and entirely, with all its prayers, works, joys, sacri- fices, and sorrows. Give us truly holy priests who, inflamed with the fire of Thy di- vine love, seek nothing but Thy greater glory and the salvation of our souls. And thou, Mary, good Mother of priests, protect all priests in the dangers of their holy vocation and, with the loving hand of a Mother, also lead back to the Good Shepherd those poor priests who have become untaithful to their exalted vocation and have gone astray. Amen. PRIESTS AND PEOPLE Priest's Saturday brings about an intimate union between priests end people. Surely the people will welcome with great joy the op- portunity thus given to co-operate, by prayer and sacrifice, with the priest in all the work that he does for the parish. They will thus merit to have, and will efficacious- ly make, zealous and holy priests. Experience shows that also th children easily understand the Priest's Saturday and enter with lay upon this apostolate. New vocations to the priesthood will be aroused and fostered', and surely, in many a woman's soul,as she prays and sacrifices for the sanctification of priests, the hid- den wish will be felt: "Oh, if I myself might become the mother of a priest!'| Remember that concern for the sanctification of priests is most dear to the Sacred Heart of the Divine Savior and to the Sweet Heart of His Blessed Mother. Plumbing And Heating . REPAIR SPECIALIST , PRAYER FOR PASTOR AND PRIESTS Divine Savior Jesus Christ, Who hast entrusted the weal and woe of Thy Holy Church to priests, with all the fervor of my heart I recommend to Thee the wants of my pastor and all priests. En- rich them more and more with true priestly sanctity! Give them generous, all-embracing, apostolic hearts, full of love for Thee and for all Thy souls, so that they, be- ing themselves sanctified in Thee, may sanctify us who are confinedi to their care and may lead us safely to heaven. Bestow upon hem in rich abundance all Thy priestly graces: Let them ever give us a glowing example of love and fidelity towards Holy Mother Church, towards the Pope and bishops, and grant that by word and example they may shine as models of every virtue. Most loving Jesus, bless all their priestly labors and sacrifices!  Bless all their prayers and words at the altar and in the confessional, in the pulpit, and in school, in confraternities and at the bedside of the sick! Protect and preserve them in all dangers from within and' from without! Divine Savior, give to Thy Church priests who abound in true holiness! Call many good boys and young men to the priestly and religious state! Aid and sanctify all those who are to become Thy priestsAnd to the souls of de- parted priests grant everlasting rest! But to me give a true spirit of faith and humble obedience, in order that in my pastor I ever be- hold the representative of God and willingly follow all his teachings! Amen.

()---The deep filial affection for His Holiness Pope Pius XII manifested by the Catholics of Germany in connec- tion with the Sow:reign Pontiff's Episcopal Silver Jubilee is re- flected in an article which has just been published in Osservatore Romano. His Eminence Adolpi Cardinal Bertram, Archbishop of Breslau, is quoted by Osservatore as say- ing the commemoration of the Holy Father's jubilee was a simul- taneous profession of faith in the Supreme Head of the Church. The Most Roy. Konrad Count van reysing, Bishop of Berlin, said: "Let this be onr vow in this solemn hour: We are faithful to the Pope because we wish to re- main faithful to Christ, wishing to leave to coming generations in a world renewed in the spirit of Christ a better and happier society than tha imnded down to us." Simildr tributes were paid by other German Bishops, Osserva- tore says. The Belgian Episcopate, the paper adds, commemorated the Holy Father's jubilee with a col- lective pastoral directing atten- tion to the Pope's motto "Peace is the Work of Justice". Good Counsel NCCW Unit To Study Missal Little Rock.--The study of the Missal was undertaken by Our Lady of Good Counsel Parish Unit of the NCCW at their regular meeting last week, to be the next major project of this organization. The Missal will be thoroughly and extensively studied including the outline and explanation of the various kinds of Masses. Mrs. R. C. Harville, president, presided at the regular business meeting. Chairman of the dif- ferent committees made their re,. port. Mrs. Sarlo, chairman of theommittee promoting "a shrine in every home" made a most favor- able report. Many new homes have now a shrine to their favor- ite Saint through the work of this committee. Rev. Edward R. Ma- lay read the customery 15 minutes from the New Testament and dis- cussion followed. Discussion on the Missal will start with the next meeting and all members are welcome. DR.

Would that we could count more of these good people who would pass on to friend or neighbor copies of our papers and magazines, who would talk of our press where- ever they may be, and carry about them at home and at meetings or business an enthusiasm for the Catholic Press that would enkindle an eager spirit of Catholic Action. Yes, indeed, a few more truly Catholic support- ers of our press, not the complacent or selfish kind like so many of ours are-but the real thing-is what we need. What a pact it would be-writers and readers-if we should keep on trying for such a goal no matter how distant it may seem. For without half trying, Catholic Action and the Catholic Press would march hand in hand, mounting in quality and in- fluence for lasting good.
