The cross of the Polish child' is double that of the other children, for Soviet Russia has adopted the German method as her treatment of the Polish fam- ily, in separating parents and children, brothers from sisters. "The author of this article liw ed through the Soviet occupation Christian Morality Vatican City. (E) It was be- cause of transgressions of the Sixth Commandment, which in their localities has been declared to be antiquated and outmoded, that His Eminence Joseph Cardi- nal Schulte, Archbishop of Col- ogne, and the Most Roy. Lorenz Jaeger, Archbishop of Paderborn, issued a Joint Lenten Pastoral expounding the immutable prin- ciples of Christian morality. The German Bishops prove in their pastoral that chastity is not only a manly virtue of renuncia- tion, but is also-contrary to what its opponents may say---a positive force in the lives of individuals and nation. Naturalism proclaims the right of so-called free love, and in af- firming that every maternity is holy represents a grave menace especially to young womanhood, the Archbishops point out. The Joint Pastoral affirms that mater- nity in wedlock can not in any- way be put on the same level with natural maternity, stating that "whoever says it can desecrates the ideal of maternity and of hu- man dignity and certainly contri- butes nothing to the welfare of young womanhood." The Joint Pastoral denounces the argument of utility, stating that sin never becomes a good ac- tion, even if some utility, stating that sin never become a good ac- tion, even if some utility is in- volved. The second part of the Pastoral protests against the rising tide of divorce and ,against everything directed against the stability of the family. Finally, the Pastoral defends virginity, which is ridiculed by modern naturalism,, and defined as an excessive form of unnatural deniaI of life. 41 Italian Chaplains Reported Killed In Action London.

Reverend dear Father: I am so sorry you were not in when I came to bid you goodbye as I left to come to work in the city. I wanted to tell you how much I appreciated all you did for me during my high school days. I hope I shall always be a worthy alumna of our beloved Alma Ma- ter and ever faithful to your pa- ternal and priestly teachings. I except, to come home over weekends now and then, but I do hope you will drop me a line. I am a little lonesome. Very respectfully yours, Mary Jo My adddress is: Gem Del. Bright City 1 am the pastor and I saw Mary Jo on the steps of a downtown church some five years later. She was still a good Catholic girl but it was not the same Mary Jo of high school days. Should she look that old at twenty-three? Should she need so much paint and lipstick, she, who needed none at seventeen? Had she saved any money? Oh no, she was making many payments on this and that. As a matter of fact, now she is always in debt. Had she changed her philosophy of life? That was the biggest change. The movies, dates, part- ies, good times. "I hope I don't have too many kids. (She came from a lovely farm family of ten.) I don't want" to get married yet. I want to be free a little longer. I will be back to the old town for Christmas." Fifteen years have passed and she Js now thirty-eight and has two children. They attend the Catholic school in the city where she lives. The husband works but the job is hone too steady. He is a convert; he does quite well at his religion (he is an ex- ception). She looks older than she is and a little disappointed with life. The city is quite at- t:active, but its phantom beauty never quite came within her grasp. Would she have been dis- appointed if it had? No, because she lost the R.F.D., philosophy when her address became: Gem Del., Bright City. Catholic Flier Wins Canadian Hero Award Montreal, Que.

A new rock parish school and rectory have been built, testi- fying to the zeal of Father Fab- ,ian's ministry during the last two years. He personally works on the rebuilding operations with his i volunteer parish crew, and su- pervises all proceedings. Workmen had begun pouring I fourdations for the new church i last week when Father Fabian took sick. Many supplies had I been procured before wartime "freezing" orders went into ef- fect, and the parish plans to build on as far as it can. Father Fa- bian at press time was hopeful of being back with his flock at Easter. Easter Recess original article was written in the Polish language.

Normally war de- prives the child of father, but leaves him a mother and the pro- tection of the community at large.

"The war deprived the Polisl child not only of his father, but also of his mother, family, home and even country,-of everything! Of a piece of bread and a sip of milk!

I Purpose of suspending classes is to permit students to attend the Holy Week services and faculty members to take unrestricted part in the same. Many students avail themselves of the recess, while others, particularly young men studying for the priesthood, join lhe abbey in its solemn observance of the sacred days. The Rt. Rev. Abbot Paul M.

Grant to all unity in the Faith and courage to profess it unwaveringly." This has served to recall here the aspiration in bebalf of Rus- sia to which Pope Plus XI at- tached a 300-day indulgence, namely: "Saviour of the World save Russia."
