While contain- ing all the acts necessary to sal-i vation, even to implicit Baptism of desire, the prayer avoids any extrenal appearance of Catholic- ity that might arouse old preju-I dices and thus interfere with its1 use.

These flags will remain in the church for-the duration of the war, he said, so that when entering the church we will be reminded of the share we are playing in this war, and that we shall remember to pray for the boys' safe return and also for speedy victory and lasting peace in keeping with the wish of our beloved Bishop as ex- pressed in his Pastoral. During Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament special prayers for the boys in the service, for all the armed forces, and for victory and peace were offered up. The following beautiful hymn was sung during the ceremony: Hymn for the Soldiers. Mary help our valiant solliers. Guide them all on land and sea Keep them ever near to Jesus, And sweet Mother close to thee. Chorus Mary help them, help we pray, Help our soldiers, night and day. Bring us peace and dearest Mother Bring our boys safe home, we pray. Mother help our wounded Help those sailing o'er the Pray that be won for Jesus. Born through grief to live again.

Windsor, Ont. (E)."There is a law in this city which prohibits the use of profane language on the streets," Magistrate J. A. Han- rahan told a 24-year-old man who appeared before him. The court imposed a fine of $10 and costs, wih an option of seven days in !jail. The accused paid the fine. for months with various na- tional authorities for the pur- chase and delivery to Greece of food and medicines. The suc- cess of these efforts is disclos- ed now with the receipt of word that the food and medi- cines have arrived in Greece, have been distributed', and have been received there with the utmost gratitude. Before effecting their parti- cular kind of relief, Pope Plus XII has caused kitchens to be established in various parts of Greece to feed the hungry. Passion l'lay Now In 40th Season Boston. (El.  "Pilate's Daugh- ter," a passion play presented by the Redemptorist Fathers of Bos- ton, embarked upon its fortieth consecutive year, in St. Alphon- sus' Hall here in the presence of two Governors, 14 Mayors and civic and military leaders of three States. His Eminence William Cardinal O'Connell, Archbishop of Boston, is Honorary Chairman of the Ju- bilee Committee. Twenty-six performances are to be given this year, and that on March 5 will be the 1,000th pre- sentation of the play since its in- auguration in 1902: This perform- ance will be dedicated to the au- thor, the Rev. Francis L. Kenzel, C. SS. R., now 82 and seridusly ill at Saratoga Springs, N. Y. Of several benefit performances the most noteworthy was one for 1,000 deaf persons, with the entire dialogue given in the sign lan- guage. Besides 700 deaf from Greater Boston there were groups from Providence and Pawtucket R. I., Portland, Me., and Manches- ter, N. H. "Pilate's Daughter" when hastily written by Father Kenzel in 1902 was intended for two or three performances merely as a Lenten play for the Redernptorist Fathers' parish of Our Lad'y of Perpetual Help.

H2, timeliness of the twenty-first na- tional convention of the National Council of Catholic Women, to be held in Hollywood and this city, April 18-23, was stressed by the Most Rev. Joseph P. Hurley, Bishop of St. Augustine and host to the sessions, in an address be- fore the Board of the St. Augus- tine Diocesan Council of Catholic Women. The Board held its first meeting to prepare for the forthcoming convention and adopted as its slo- gan for the period of preparation, "Every Catholic Woman in Flor- ida a Hostess." "The keynote of the whole con- vention will be a deeply superna-! rural one, because it will bring Catholic women of America to-! gether at a time when the fate of their country and religion hangs upon the issue of war," the Bishop said. "Furthermore, this meeting will afford the opportunity to meet at a great National Shrine of Moth- erhood- the Shrine of Nuestra Senora de la Leche y Buen Parts-- at a time when mothers are pray- ing for the boys in service. It will also be a pilgrimage of mothers to the Blessed Mother herself at a period in our history when those seeking to degrade motherhood are putting forth their best efforts. "The history of the Shrine links the Catholic home with the Sacri- .rice of the Mass, because on that site Mass was first celebrated in any American settlement some 55 years before the Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock." Sessions of the convention de- voted to the family and to shrines will be a feature of the program ion April 23, the day of the pil- grimage to the Shrine here. In preparation for the convention the women of the Diocese of St. Augustine are gathering a spir- itual bouquet for presentation to His Holiness Pope Plus XIL Anxiety Ended as Hawaii Priest's Safety Is Disclosed Halifax, N. S. (E).He received so many inquiries as to his safety from old friends here, the Rev.

Recalls Ancient Glory Of Famed English Holy Place Williamsburg, Va. (E).  In this town, a facsimile of a vanished American era, the recent dedi- cation of a Shrine of Our .Lady of Walsingham brings to the at-, tention of Americans the glory of England% most famous holy place --the Walsingham Shrine near tie northern coast of Norfolk. Thus, in an atmosphere of early American life recreated by the re- production of a colonial commun- ity, a replica of one of the world's most renowned centers of relig- ious devotion, which antedates the discovery of the New World, has been established. The shrine, duplicating that of the Walsingham Priory, is located in St. Bede's Church here, and in- cludes a copy of the Statue of Our Lady, which was the focal point of the original shrine in the days before it was despoiled by the hands of persecutors. Favors Are Reported Although the Walsinglaam Shrine in England today consists of abbey ruins and the noted "Slipper Chapel," it is to that country still what Lourdes is to France. Pilgrims of this century throng to it as did those of pre- vious centuries, and, as in the past, reports are frequent of ex- traordinary spiritual and temporal favors bestowed upon the devout who visit and pray there. Pil- grimages, until the outbreak of the second World War, were made regularly to the shrine, but there was not yet established a system of checking claims of cures. Just prior to the entrance of England into the world conflict, interest was high in the revival of Wal- singham as a national shrine. A new church was planned and ground bought for the edifice, which was to be larger than the original church destroyed in the "Reformation." According to the plans, the stone was to have been brought from Nazareth to build the Chapel of the Annunciation in the new church. Such proposals were suspended by the war, as were the pilgrimagos to the shrine, since the district in which it is located was declared a defense zone. Walsingham was founded in the time of Edward the Confessor, the chapel of Our Lady of Walsing- ham being confirmed' to the Au- gustinian Canons a century, later and enclosed within the pmory. From tbe very beginning the place was a pilgrimage center, the faithful visiting including all classes from not only England but even the continent. Kings as well as peasants walked frequently barefooted to the holy place and to this day the main road of the p i 1 g r i m s through Newmarket, Brandon, and Fakenham is called the Palmers' Way: Many miracles were reported to have been wrought at the shrine. Prior Despoiled In 1538 the priory fell a vic- tim to the persecution and cupid- ity, of Henry VIII. The King's commission removed the statue of Our Lady and divested the shrine of its treasures and orna- ments. The prior was destroyed and its site sold by Henry VIII to an individual for $450, and on the spot a mansion was erected. The present owner of the site is Lady Gurney, a non-Catholic, whose family has been in posses- sion of the property or the past four centuries. The ]pilgrim cen- ter isthe Slipper haiel, which stands about a mile fPom the origi- nal shrine. In the days of Wal- singham's glory, the pilgrims re- moved their shoes at the Slipper Chapel and walked barefoot to the shrine itself. Usually the ab- bey ruins are closed to pilgrims, but on occasion, such as that of the first national youthful pil- grimage in 1938, Lady Gurney in- vites visitors to view the ruins. The first triduum to Our Lady of Walsingham to be held at the Shrine was conducted by the Rev. Dr. Gerald Groveland Walsh, S. J., of the Graduate School of Ford- ham University, Editor of Thought, quarterly magazine of the univer- sity. The Rev. Thomas J. Walsh, Pas- tor of St. Bede's Church, plans to inaugurate weekly pilgrimages to the Shrine and to hold' serv- tees every Sunday afternoon; Bishop Of Sol00mon isle Reported Safe Melbourne, Australia. (E).--Con- cern that has been felt for the safety of the Most Rev. Thomas Wade, S. M., Vicar Apostolic of the North Solomon Islands, due to prolonged silence, has been dis- sipated by receipt of word that he refused to leave Kieta when a Japanese warship appeared out- side the harbor. Bishop Wade, it was stated, an- nounced his intention of donning his clerical robes, meeting the in- vaders and requesting that they respect his religion and work on the islands. It was announced that the is- lands are not under permanent oc- cupation and that missionaries are continuing their labors. American Medical Sisters who recently ar- rived in the North Solomon Is- lands are reported to be safe. Archbishop Rummel Address In 'Congressional Record' Washington.
