On the other hand they must exercise the balance of wisdom which accords respect and filial devotion but dis- cards idolatry and superstition. Through their Christian training they recognize that the Sacrifice offered daily on the altars of the mission chapel has the quality of divinity which differentiates It from the sacrificial ceremonies of the chiefs and witch doctors. The Society For The Propagation Of The Faith PENALTIES FOR SACRILEGE The name of Bishop Francis T. Roche is familiar to many of our readers for he has been in charge of the see of Tuicorin for the past twenty years and has written on mission matters prolifically dur- ing those two decades. Being a native of India he knows the men- tality of his people and appreciates the difficulties facing them both from the nationalistic yiewpoint and the threat of invasion. We may be certain therefore that the following facts are authentic rec- ordings of a recent outbreak of violence. "At Mokameh, Patna diocese," he writes, "the priest's bungalow was looted by a mob. Having been !forewarned the Father had hidden the Blessed Sacrament, but the looters forced open the Tabernacle, thinking that money was kept there. They stole the only cibor- ium they could find and took away tableware, typewriter, bicy- cles, books, breviaries, etc., after clubbing the priest. "The following day," continues Bishop Roche, "one of those who broke open the tabernacle was shot in the looting mob at Mo- kameh station, and the one who assisted him found his arm para- lyzed. At Marpa rioters put up the Congress flag on the cross of the church. The man who hoisted it and tied it to the cross died the next day of cholera." THE CIRCLET OF CHARITY In Morocco the cities of Casa- blanca, Rabat and Fez have hos- pitals staffed by Franciscan Mis- sionaries of Mary and this same community#has other missions in Midelt, Marakesh, Oudja, Tara- dount, Meknes and Taza. Certain- ly the members of this zealous sisterhood have encircled the globe with their charitable undertak- ings, which in North Africa in- clude educational and welfare work for women and children as well as dispensaries.

That St. Mary's Mission on the Lower Brule Reservation, S. Dak., has been destroyed by fire? That the recently deceased' and internationally renowned scien- tist, Dr. George Washington Car- ver, was born in slavery and was traded for a horse when a boy? That, according to Nicholson, one of the best known authorities on Indian snakes, there are in that country 7,000 snakes to the square mile, 1,000 of which are venomous? WHAT IT MEANS For the man entering the arm- ed forces of our nation there is a long and trying period of prepara- tion before engaging in active duty, when, physically and mentally he must be at the peak of perfec- tion. Such is also true of our soldiers of Christ, the missionaries of the Catholic Church. They, too, must put in their training period, where spiritual develop- ment is carefully nurtured. The young fire of zeal for the salva- tion of souls must be tended to grow into an all-consuming blaze, which will make the charity of Christ the motivation of every act. There must be developed an un- derstanding of distant and strange peoples, their customs and lmbits. There must be an adaptation to the ways of life different from any- thing known previously. But be- hind all this, according to Mon- signor John J. Broadman, Brook- lyn Diocesan Director of The Soc- iety for the Propagation of the Faith, remains the story of the romance of the missions, the story of adventure, on the part of Christ's intrepid Commandos. Be- hind it all lies the story of love, love of God, love for souls--that love wtfich makes the missioner, :he soldier, the saint. DEATH OF ESKIMO SISTER News has just been received [rom Rev. John P. Fox, S.J., of the death of one of the native Eskimo Sisters who worked with him at Hooper Bay. She was Sister Mary John, of the native community known as the Sisters of Our Lady of the Snows/ and was boz at Tununak, Alaska, on January 6, 1919. After attending the government grade school on Nelson Island, she entered the mission school at Akulurak, under the Ursuline Sisters. In 1939 she received the habit of the native While these are the traditional 'eportings of the usual death no- tice, one striking statement is made by Father Fox concerning Sister Mary John. He writes that when told of her approaching end, "she replied that she was ready to go to heaven and that from there she would send us many postu- lants to take her place." Already she seems to be making good her promise "for," concludes Father Fox, "two new ones were received yesterday." Burma For Christ "Climbing the mountains of Upper Burma," reports "The Far Cut Stone Rosary No. 7&.-Sterling Sliver, Loc-Link rosary with finn cut quality stones in Amethyst orEmerald bemds. Crucifix with Droop- ins Head Cerpue .... $7.B0 The Guardian East", a young priest founded the first Catholic mission among the Kachin people. He dedicated it to Our Lady of Lourdes. That was forty years ago. The pioneer priest is today a white-bearded veteran, but he has the joy of see- ing blessed fruits issuing from his labors. Mary Immaculate has not failed her Kachin missions. Since 1936 St. Columban's priests have had the privilege of working in that mountain harvest field. The veteran, Father Gilhodes of the Paris Foreign Missions, has been with them to guide and en- courage. Now, despite the proxi- mity of war, the soldiers of Christ are continuing at the Burmese sta- tions, allowing no danger to deter them from their first and greatest task, the salvation, of souls. Eighty-One Yeaxs Of Service Isabelle Wathen was but seven- teen years of age when she be- came a member of the community known as the Sisters of Loretto at the Foot of Cross but during the intervening eighty-one years, as Sister Mary Athanasius, she wit- nessed the development of Ken- tucky from a frontier territory and the expansion of her beloved Sis- terhood into a world embracing apostolate. ' Within two months of her nine= ty-ninth birthday Sister Mary Athanasius was called to her re- ward, so richly deserved after more than eight decades of ser- vice. What a different land she left! Yet in some respects, not so different! War ravaged the land in 1861 when she entered the Lorettines just as it does today. But there were no machine guns in those days; no tanks, no air- planes, no wireless. Living was simpler and harder. Milk was not delivered to the door, already sterilized and bottled; Sister Mary Athanasius had to help in milk- ing the cows in Nerinckx. There were no electric water heating de- vices; "she hauled buckets of wa- ter up the steep, frozen hill to wash clothes. Sometimes she would slip, spill the water and roll down hill for a fresh start. She took care of turkeys and chickens, cooked, chopped wood. She had charge of the historic log cabin that was once the home of the great Father Charles Ner- inckx and Father Stephen Badin the first priest ordained in the United States." Thus Sister Mary Athanasius may be considered a proof that hard work is no enemy of long- evity. However over and above all she occupied a unique place as one of the most striking exam- plars of the historical and tradi- tional background of a truly great, pmneering American sisterhood. No prayer is unheard, none is wasted, there is none that we shall not meet again in the world to come. Oh! when we come to die how bitterly shall we mourn that we have prayed so little, prayed so negligently; 'we shall see then timt life was hardly life when it was not also prayer,Faber.

(E)The Lacordaire and Jeanne D'Arc temperance soc- ieties, which are under Catholic duspices, have made substantial progress during the past year. The membership in Quebec Prov- ince now is 17,600, as compared with 10,100 a year ago. The num- ber of circles has grown from 120 to 168. What pleasure shall be ours in beholding our Lady of the Im- maculate Conception, the glorious Mother of God. The saints to whom our Lady appeared speak enthusiastically of Mary's celestial beauty, of her queenly gracious ways. When you bestow immense sums of money in charity, you do not do anytlfing near as noble as when you save a single soul. Nothing is so dear to God, He has nothing more at heart than the salvation of souls.St. John Chrysostom.
