Sheen i The Gospel story of the life of Christ is the pro-history of the ;.iurch. What happened tO the Piwsical Christ, happens also to Mystical Christ, the Chm'ch. As Iie sufftred under Pontius ate, so must the Church suffer under the power of the state; as He was accused of perverting the nation, so must the Church feel the sting of the same false charge. During this Lent partic- ularly, one can see Christ once again going out to Ills death, not in Jerusalem, but in the Mission World. Our Lord said: "Suffer the little chil- dren to come unto Me." But in Ceylon, there is a movement to hand over all Catho- lic schools to the state, thus permitting Buddhist, Hindu and Moslem teachers "to suffer the little children to come unto con- fusion worse confounded." The same anti- Christian forces would ban all sisters from hospitals after October 1, 1956. One won- ders who will take over without salary, and with such dedicated service, the two leper clonles now served by pious hands and hrist-likc. hearts. In Canton, Holy Week is re-lived by His Excel- ncy Bishop,, Dominic Tang. Exactly like" his Master, he is ac- Cused of perverting the nation, refusing to give tribute to Mao-Tse ung', and saying that Christ is King." 1: There is one difference between the Passion of Christ, in Jeru- |alem and His Gethsemane today. Then, ' they all forsook Iim, and fld." Thank God, today our faithful feel the suffering of Christ in China as the brain feels a burned hand. Their interest is not eamtional, but sacrificial.

First of all, we must make it definitely clear that such a mar- riage is NOT WRONG IN ITSELF. There is no lw of God--no law of the Church--which forbids such a marriage: The laws of some of our states do forbid such marriages, but these laws are not valid for baptized people. If is interesting to note that the courts have held such a law unconstitu- tional In California. Only the Church can make a valid law for- bidding baptized people to mar- ry. But circumstances frequently change the morality of an act. And we must always be alert to the consequences of our acts. An act good in itself may be made bad by its circumstances or con- sequences: From an act like marriage there are many conse- quences lasting throughout the years and affecting the lives of many people. Many of these con- sequences we can not foresee. These have no effect on the mor- ality of our act. But others we can and SHOULD forsee. These we must weigh seriously and carefully. Do the good conse- quences outweigh the bad. , ,: ,:Pt'Jmtle Is a FaeL .... ..  Young people of different races contemplating marriage must seriously consider the so- cial problems they themselves will encounter and those they impose ripen their children. We may rightly condemn our racial prejudices. But they are facts, hard, painful and persistent facts. Before a man is justified in sub- Jecting his wife and children to the rigorous reality of those facts, he must think repeatedly and weigh well. But there are good results to be weighed--mutual love and happiness and helpfulness and the blessings consequent thereto. In any given case the parties must carefully consider all the consequences. If they judge that the good effects outweigh the bad, they do no wrong at all in marrying. It is the good they intend. They accept the bad with it, as something inescapable in human life. But they should seek com- petent advice, too. Because they are apt to be deluded by emo- tion, and to weigh the scales wfth their own desires. The problem is serious and the consequences will last for generations. It should be mentioned that rcial prejudice and the Pesult- ing social problems are largely local. In many parts of the world there is no aocial handicap resulting from such marriages. Ungrateful Children. They wouldn't have personality or immortality. Their mixed race is nothing more than a social handicap re- sulting from prejudice. Such a handicap may well serve to de- velop character, to inspire to greatness, anal to lead to the full happiness of self-conqtlest and victory over circumstances• It really handicaps only those who use it as an excuse for failure or a refuge from fear. , Are there any Catholic institu. tions wMch offer a course in phy- s'.col education or women? There are many Catholic wo- men's collegeg and co-educational colleges in; the Mid,West, some in the Suth, .nd a few. ln,the.,West • which list major courses in Phy- sical Education.
