The love Of the present-day Italian for frequent religious observa- ~,~..~__ _ .=. .=. .~. .=.. .;. tlons, saints' days and festivals may be a heritage from those distant an- cestors who worshiped the innumer- able deities of their polytheistic faith. These rites and feasts were, says Gib- ben, the Detroit News recalls, "closely interwoven with every circumstance of buelnes~ and pleasure, of public or of private life, and it seemed impossible to escape the observance of them with- out at the same time renouncing the commerce of mankind and all the of- rices of amusement and society." To avoid participation in these vari- ous festivities, without thereby Incur- ring popular or official displeasure and its accompanying punishment, was one of the chief concerns of the early Christians of Rome. There came s time, however~ when the shoe was on the other foot, and the triumphant Christians attached severe penalties to the observance of the old feasts. The ~estlval of purification became the Christian Lenten season, the spring celebration of the pagans became the Easter of the Christians, and the De- cember Saturnalia was superseded by Christmas. *I wish for you an Easter day, Just filled to overflowing With JOy of spring and sunny" sklss And God's fair green things growlag.

Welcome Easter Meuage More people go to church on Easter Sunday than upon any other day In the year, because the message is a funda- mental one, and whatever else Chris- tians may be charged with, the truth Is the mass of the Christian people really believe in the fundamentals of their religion. Perhaps. if they heard more sermons on the resurrected Christ, more pews would be filled than are. Jesus said, "I~ I be lifted up,"l will draw all~nen to Me," and those churches in which a real living Christ iS preached do 'not lack attondanis. ALTUS, ARKANSAS
