(EL--Pain must be related with the Cross declared the Rt. Rev. Msgr. Ful- ton J. Sheen in the course of his address last night over the "Cath- olic Hour." The "Catholic Hour" is broad- cast over a network of the Na- tional Broadcasting Company through Station WEAF, here, and is produced by the National Coun- cil of Catholic Men. Speaking on the Second Word uttered by Our Lord on Golgotha, Monsignor Sheen declared that this Word "tells us what should be our attitude toward pain," and, he said, these two attitudes "are manifested in the two thieves on either side of Our Blessed Lord." "The thief on the right," he added "is the model for those for whom pain has a meaning." See No Meaning in Pain The thief on the left, he said, "began and ended his crucifixion with a curse," never correlating "his sufferings with the Man on the central cross." "The world today is full of those who, like the thief on .the left, see no meaning in pain," he went on. "Knowing nothing of Redemption they are unable to fit pain into a pattern; it becomes just an odd patch on the crazy quilt of life .... Never having thought of God as anything more than a name, they are unable to fit the stark realities of life into His Divine Plan ..... "The lesson is clear: Pain of it- self does not make us better; it is very apt to make us worse.. The thief at the left is no better for his crucifixion; it sears him burns him, and tarnishes his soul. Refusing to think of pain as re- lated to anything else, he ends by thinking only of himself and who would take him down from the cross. So it is with those who have lost their faith in God. To them Our Lord on a cross is only an event in the history of the Ro- man empire: He is not a message of hope or a proe of love . . Having no reason for living, suf- faring embitters them, poisons them, and finally, the great door of life's opportunity is closed in their faces, and like the thief, on the left they go out into the night unblessed. Occasion for Penance "Now look at the thief on the right---the symbol of those for whom pain has a meaning. At first he did not understand it, and therefore joined in the curses with the thief on the left. But just as sometimes a flash of lightning will illumine the path I we have missed, so too th Sav- iour's forgiveness of His execu-! tioners illumined for the thief the road of mercy. He began to see that if pain had no reason Jesus would not have embraced it. If the cross had no purpose Jesus would not have climbed it. Sure- ly He Who claimed to be God would never have taken that badge of shame unless it could be transformed and transmitted to some holy purpose. Pain was be- ginning to be reasonable for the thief; for the present at least it meant an occasion to do penance for his life Oi crime .... "Now he saw pain as doing to his soul something like that which fire does to gold: burning away the dross. Or something like that which fever does to disease: kill- ing the germs. Pain was dropping scales away from his eyes; and, turning toward the central cross, he no longer saw a crucified man, but a Heavenly King .... "Pain in itself is not unbear- able; it is the failure to under- stand its meaning that is unbear- able. If that thief did not see pur- pose in pain he would never have saved his soul. Can Be Made Redemption "It is not so much what people Jonesboro, Ark. Four Members Of Subiaco Sodality Go to Convention Subiaco, March 15.  (Special). Subiaco academy members of the international Blessed Virgin Sodality have elected four haem- bers of the local unit to attend the regional convention held at St. Louis, Me., March 19 and 20. Members who will attend are Os- car Stolle, Ferguson, "Me., Leon- ard Fox, Prairie View, Henry An- halt, Shoal Creek, and Mart Ash- our, Subiaco. They will leave for St. Louis late this week and be in attendance at the gathering on Saturday and Sunday. Each delegate from Subiaco will make out a report on returning from data taken down on the convention procedure. These re- ports will be submitted to the lo-! cal director, the Very Rev. Ig-I natius Bodmayr, O. S. B., who will designate the best report, or else a combination of features efi various reports, for presentation! to the home unit in the course of' a convocation this spring. The Roy. Alcuin Kubis, O. S. B., director of the Subiaco de- partment for candidates for the: priesthood, will accompany the  delegates. !suffer that makes the world mys- terious; it is rather how much l they miss when they suffer. They I seem to forget that even as chil- dren they made obstacles in their games in order to have something to overcome. Why, then, when they grow into man's estate, should there not be prizes won by ef- fort and struggle? . . . "Why then cannot pain be made redemption? Why under the al- chemy of Divine Love cannot crosses be furned into crucifixes? Why cannot chastisements be re- garded as penances? Why can- not we use a cross to become God- like? We cannot become like Him in His Power: we cannot become like Him in His Knowledge. There is only one way we can become like Him, and that is in the way He bore His sorrows and His Cros .... "You and I often ask God for many favors which are never granted. I can imagine the thief on the right during his life ask- ing God for many favors, and very especially for wealth. On the other hand, though God does not always grant our material favors, there is one prayer He always grants. There is a favor that you and I can ask of God this very moment, if we had the courage to do it, and that favor would be granted before the day is over. That prayer which God has never refused and will never refuse is t!e prayer for suffering. Ask Him to send you a cross and you will receive it! "But why does He not always answer our prayers for an in- crease in salary, for larger com- missions, for more money? Why did He not answer the prayer of the thief on the left to be taken down from the cross, and why did He answer the prayer of the thief on the right to forgive his sins? Because material favors draw us away from Him, but the cross always draws us to Him. And God does not want the world to have us! He wants us Himself be- cause He died for us!"
