The movement for the reverent ob- selwance of Good Frida); is spread- ing rapidly throughout the country. Last year we called attention of our readers to the meaning of this great day. We urged that they use their influence to have the Three Hours obselwed in a befitting manner. It is not too soon to ask them to begin agitation for a spread of the good work. When the human race lost the frieudship of God by sin there cost4 be but one Atonement. It demanded "1 Victim that would measure up to the God whom it wouhl appease. The Eternal Son offered Himself as the Victim. The Sacrifice was completed on the first Good Friday afternoon. When the sun was in the zenith of its glory He laid Himself on the Altar of the Cross. For three hours He hung in agony until the hour appointed by His Heavenly F-(her had struck. Then Chrlst died ant we might live. Good Friday cans everything to us. The infid, may not share our faith and the Jew )nay not sympa- Ithize with our love for this clay. Even those who do not believe that Jesus Christ is the true God recognize that He was the greatest Man that ever blessed the (arth-' by His presence. Both infidel and Jew gladly pay tri- bute to the sweet gospel of the gentle Christ They recognize that tie gave a real "meaning to the Fatherhood of God just as He gave the first im- pulse to the brotherhood of man. ]f we are a Christian nation, if our civilization and institutions are built on Christian lines, our profession. ought to fine concrete expression. On no single clay of the yea)" do we stop in our ordinary pursuits in answer to the call of religion. It is not asking too much that our country give these three precious hours to the comme- moration of Him who gave His life for humanity. Our Catholic merchants ,should be the first to show the way. They should close their places of business during those three precious hours and Catholic people should ab- stain from all unnecessa)w work. If possible spend those hours in church. Many of the churches have the devo- tion of the Tre Ore. If we believe that Christ is our Friend we should not refuse to stay with Him during His death agony.

The great world war has brought out latent American force, skill and energy even beyond the expectations of t(; most optimistic, surprising the home folks and quitestaggering for- eign peoples. Here and there have come to the front, in all lines of in- dustrial and military pursuits, super- men m t were, who gave of their 4tlents anti effms to the successful issue of a moral exploitation of mast- erly human endeavor. Press reports have made us quite well acquainted with some of these genuises along the lines of stupemhlous enterprises, and while as heads they came within the limelig'ht'o]' lmblicity, they (lid not as a rule assume to themselves all the credit, but generally accredited their success to the eq-operation of their officers. This passing on of credit due, and appreciation of endeavors, cially, are studying German In ,their opinion, a language that opens "the mind to a literature of highest value is a thing apart from interna- tional quarrels.
