It also was disclosed that 2,559 pieces of property have been dam- aged including 1,605 Churches. On the basis of last year's rices, which meanwhile have in- creased steadily, it has been esti- mated conservatively that the de- struction and damage wrought will approximate 2,500,000,000 lire. An investigation by the Pontifi- cal Commission on Sacred Arch- eology has disclosed that no ser- ious damage has befallen the Catacombs in Rome, it is an- nounced here. Hundreds of homeless refugees found sanctuary in the Catacombs during hostilities, without harming or removing the many precious works of art, the Commission ;tates. It is noted that one entrance of a minor catacomb has been ob- literated in an effort to secret Italian patriots from German SS troops, but an offer has been made to repair the damage. services as a priest wherever needed. One of his greatest prides is "Doughboy Chapel," a rough hewn building patterned after the one on Guadalcanal. It was started by soldiers, completed by Seabees, and has been furnished largely by the Marines.

APRIL 13. 1945 Morris Schooi, Searcy, Arkansas .:: ., . Morris School, Searcy, Arkansas, is under the di rection of the Franciscan Brothers, with Brother John Meier, O.F.M., in charge. Accepting boys to the tenth grade, the school in its twenty-fourth year has a record enrollment. Two of the up-to-date buildings of the group are shown above. St. Therese of Lisieux Named Patron of Pueblo Diocese, Bishop States Pueblo. (}--St. Therese of the Child Jesus has been designated principal patron of the Diocese of Pueblo, the Most Rev. Joseph C. Willging, Bishop of Pueblo, an- nounced at a Pontifical Mass in Sacred Heart Cathedral here. The decree was read in Latin and Eng- lish by the Very Rev. Msgr. Aloy- sius J. Miller, Vicar General of the diocese. During this month special no- venas will be held in every par- ish and institution throughout the diocese to honor St. Therese as patron. The Diocese of Pueblo thus becomes the only diocese in the United States whose patroness is St. Therese of the Child of Jesus, who was recently desig- nated, together with St. Joan of Arc, as co-patron of France, and who was named, with St. Francis Xavier, co-patron of all mission activities by the late Pope Plus XI. Following the promulgation of the decree, Bishop Willging, in his sermon, explained that choice of a principal patron of a place, whether a country, a diocese or a city, must be confirmed by the Holy Father himself in a speqial indult. The liturgy of the Church makes a strict distinction between the patron of a place and the titular of a church, he said. The titular may be a Divine Person, a mystery, a sacred object or a saint in whose name the church is solemnly blessed and after whom it is called. The selection of the titular is not subject to the ap- probation of the Holy See, nor is it subject to the same formalities as the choice of a patron, ,Krli ...... Columbus State(ouncil By J, P. Reynolds So you are the one who has been reading this column? Thanks, Fort Smith, for your commendations. Now that we are convinced that a Knight reads it, we are somewhat encouraged to believe that per- haps some one who isn't a Knight might. It's a farfetched hypothesis, but just suppose that you who are now reading these words are a practical Catholic and otherwise eligible for membership, but for some reason or other have never given much thought to joining the Knights of Columbus. May I ask, did it ever occur to you that there may be many good reasons why you should be a Knight? Don't start with a negative determination, based perhaps on a superficial analysis of some in- dividual Knight, or some isolated incident, and condemn the whole order. This process of reasoning would have caused you to reject the twelve apostles, and that in itself stamps it as wrong. Take the Order as a whole, or even your own home town coun- cil, and I am sure you will find its personnel somewhat above the average, and on an "average, no i better and perhaps no worse than yourself. If you can arrive at t'hat conclusion, you are beginning to understand the first principle of the Knights of Columbus, namely "Charity". Charity is not puffed-up, it promotes a consid- eration of your brother's short- comings, and a realization of your own faults, and creates a common basis upon which men may agree, an all important factor for "Unity" the second principle of our Order. Having progressed that far in your deliberations, you have created in yourself a mental at- titude favorable to further con- siderations of membership in the Robbins Sanford Mercantile Company Furniture, Hardware, Lumber, Farm Tools t Boys' Clothes and Shoes Searc; Arkansas Knights of Columbus. Start from that point and investigate the achievements, the purpose and the possibilities of a body of practical Catholic men organized along fraternal lines, with unity of purpose and of action, and then ask yourself "Do I want to be a part of this movement, or will I stand on the side line. and let the others do the work?" THIRD DEGREE COUNCILS @ NEWS @ Council 812 Regular meeting of the Council Tuesday night, April 17th, at 8:15. Lecturer, Robert S.
