SHEEN TELLS: WHAT CHRIST DID ON EARTH AS MAN (Continued from page 1) voice, forgave penitent Magdalene, sanctified the woman at the well, and remade Nicodemus as one born anew ..... "In other words, the human nature or the body of our blessed Lord was the conjoined instrument by which He taught, governed and sanctified; by it He communicated His truth as teacher, His law as king, and His life as a priest, for He was in truth the way and the life. Could Take Up His Life Again. "The remarkable thing about His earthly life was the fact that He often spoke of it continuing after His death, for He who laid down His life could take it up again. He reminded His apostles over and over again that after His resurrection He would as- sume another body, not a body like unto the one which He took from the blessed Mother, but rather a kind of secial body which would be made up of all those who would become in- corporated into His kingdom. He said that this union between Himself and this body would be organic, vital and life-like, like a union of the vine and the branches, and just as the branches cQuld not live without the vine, so neither could this new body of His live without Him. He prom- ised them that He would not leave them orphans but that He would re- main with them all days even to the consummation of the world, and that when two or more were gathered to- gether in His name He would be in the midst of them." .... "Am I teaching a strange and novel doctrine?" Dr. Sheen contin- ued, "when I say that the church is the body of Christ? Recall to your mind an in, cident that happened with- in twenty years after the day of Pen- tecost, within which time that new body of Christ had grown and ex- panded to fill much of the then known world. The incident that I refer to is that of Saul of Tarsus, the fiery Hebrew of the Hebrews, who hated Christ and things Christian as much as any man could hate. Armed with letters from the synagogue of Jerusalem, he sets out for the city of Damascus to seize and persecute the Christians there who belonged to the church of the body of Christ. While on the way suddenly a greaz light shone round about him. He falls to the ground and hears a voice say- ing to Him: 'Saul, Saul, why perse- cutest thou me' The heat of the Oriental sun gives him strength to speak and nothingness dares ask the name of Omnipotence: 'Who art thou, Lord?' The answer comes back: 'I am Jesus whom thou per- secutest.' Saul is persecuting th~ church of Damascus and the Chris- tians of Damascus, and Christ says to Saul: 'Why persecutest bhou me?' Christ and the church, are they the same thing? Precisely, the church is Christ and Christ is the church-- such is the divine equation. "Saul learned the unforgettable lessort, that day which he afterwards taught as Paul: the lesson which Christ Himself had taught to His apostles, the lesson which is taught to us now, namely, that the church is the body of Christ. And that Christ Himself sitting at-the right hand of the Father is the head of that body. This new body, sometimes called a mystical body, is to be understood after the analogy of the human body which is ma'~de up of many members performing different functions, and yet all co-operating toward the har- runny of the whole.

Infallibility is an endowment to facilitate application of the law. of the body with which its visible head thinks and speaks the mind of Christ. And to deny that Christ can ,communicate His truth as He com- municated it centuries ago, is to limit the truth of the Son of God to Pales- tine as a space and to 33 years as a time. To the members of that body Christ speaks through the Peter of our own day as He spoke through the Peter the first. Governs Through Body "Secondly, Christ not only teaches through the instrumentality of His body, which is the Church, but He also governs through it. The su- preme, legislative, executive- and judicial decisions of the Vicar and those under his authority are the decisions of Christ and therefore binding with the authority of Christ. My will for example, may direct that my hand be moved. The deci- sion of my will is invisible, but the manifestations of the will are ex- ternal and visible. So, too, the will of Christ and the government of His Church are expressed through the visible head of His body and those joined to him "'as the other Apostles were joined to Peter. This alone gives the key to the child-like obedience so incomprehensible to the outsider which we give to the Church, an obedience whereby we submit to it as the will of Christ ex- pressed in the action of His Vicar. It is for us no slave mentality, no corpse-like servitude, but a pro- foundly religious act, an absolute de- votion to Christ paid by His children who are enjoying the glorious liberty of the children of God. "Finally, Christ does a third thing with His body and that is He sancti- fies with it. The body of Christ is continually receiving through seven mysterious physical signs the Energy of the Divine Life and the liberat- ing handling of His Precious Wounds, for each Sacrament is a kiss of God, a material thing used as a means of spiritual sanctification and the true minister of every Sacrament is none other tl~an the supreme and Eternal High Priest--Christ Himself."

C, News Service) Vatican City, March 31. --- The Etruscan Museum of the Vatican has been enriched by two new and very precious acquisitions. The first consists of an Attfc am- pimra decorated with figures in black depicting the fight between Hercules and Apollo for the brazen-hoofed hind. It was found at Naples and is thought to date from the VI century B.C. The rarity of its decoi~ation caused Signor Nogara, director .of the Pontifical Museums, to desire it for the collection. A number of promi- nent Italians purchased the amphora and presented it to His Itoliness as a jubilee gift. The second acquisition was also a visible head is the successor of His jubilee gift to Pope Plus.

News Service) Jerusalem, March 12.---When, some days ago, the bell of the new Chris- tian church of St. Nicholas in Beit- jala, near Bethlehem, was to be hung, it was found impossible to put it in position.
