Berke-I myer, secretary of the board. I Inspiring addresses were de-[ livered by the Very Rev. Otto i Loeb, pastor, and Mr. Carroll Johnson, County Clerk. Father Loeb used the words contained in the salutatory -- "Faithful, firm and true"--as his topic and Mr. Johnson spoke on the necessity of thinking, making frieTds and continuing to smile.

This is shown by a survey just completed, which also reveals that three Archbishops and 23 Bishops in the United States have their residences in the Capitals of States. Danish King Aids Founding of Shrine Copenhagen, April 18. (E}.Their Royal Hignesses the King and Queen of Denmark recently visited the Priory of the Benedictine Fa- thers and the convent of the French Assumption nuns. His Majesty spoke in high terms of His Holiness Pope Plus XI, and declared it had been a real joy to him to be able to contribute to the foundation of a shrine to be erected in Rome by Danish Cath- olics. i almost every thing under the sun. Conventions are held and lengthy speeches are the order of the day. If so many agree to help a cause, why does it not succeed? If so many are really eager to spread the knowledge of Catholicity and to expose the errors of Commu- nism and Fascism, surely more progress should have been made by this time. The reason for the lack of success is that there are too many "joiners" and not enough workers. It is easy enough for ne to sy he will help, but it is quite another mtter to go to work in an honest to goodness fashion and really to put forth ef- fort for the success of a certain cause. The test of zeal is, when one can really suffer hardship for a movement and can carry on to the end. Perhaps the method used in Ireland might he adopt- ed in this country. The "Emerald Isle" has done yeoman's service before for the faith and tho sons and daughters of Erin lve the reputation for being fighters. Let us see how they fight Communism. They make a pilgrimage to the shrine of a famous saint. Here Is an example of what it means to make a pilgrimage to St. Pat- rick's Purgatory at Lough Derg. There are 3 days of fasting with one meal a day, consisting of dry bread and black tea. These three days are spent on a rocky island, barefooted and in prayer. Next the penitents spend a whole night in a church, praying aloud, until the first Mass, which is at 6 A. M. Even then no sleep is permitted until 10 P. M. Despite the severity of this pilgrimage large numbers have made it and the numbers are increasing. If you think you are for something and want to fight for it; try something like this. It beats conventions.

His piey and zeal made him well known to his fellow-citizens and he soon began to be regarded with the highest veneration. In 1574, he compiled a Catechism to render more easy the teaching of Chris- tian Doctrine. For more than three centuries it was used in the dio- cese of Lucca. The foundation of the Congrega- tion of the Regular Clerics of the Mother of God was made by Gin- vanni Leonardi in an almost im- perceptible manner. Two men be- gan his presence and evidence a desire to consecrate themselves to the Lord: the Ven. John Baptist Cioni and Brother George Arrigh- ini. The latter had obtained the Church of the Blessed Virgin in which to officiate and, on Sep- tember 1, 1574, the Congregation was founded.

Notwithstanding many per- secutions, the Saint succeeded in ouning a monastery for young men desirous of a religious life, and, in 1565, obtained the canoni- cal erection of his Congregation and founded two other Congrega- tions of priests. When he went to Rome in 1585, he met St. Philip Neri, who presented him to many prelate and to Pope Gregory XIII, who exhorted him to con- tinue what he had so well be- gun. In 1587, the Saint returned to Rome further to consolidate his Congregation, but he had to pro- long his stay there for many years owing to opposition raised in Lucca by his enemies, who suc- ceeded in preveating his return home. He therefore made Rome the center of his activity. In .1592, Pope Clement VIII, who held him in the highest esteem, sent him as Pontifical Commis- sary to the Kingdom of Naples to regulate questions regarding a sanctuary dedicated to Our Lady. He remained three years in this office and then returned to Rome. In 1595, the Pope confirmed the Congregation founded by him and placed it under the immediate de- pendence of the Holy See.

I ! to the celebrated Monastery of Monte Virgine, where he presided over the General Chapter. Re- turned to Rome in 1601, he was entrusted with the church and parish of Santa Maria in Portico, one of the most famous sanctuaries in Rome which from that moment became the Motherhouse of his Congregation and it is there his venerated remains repose. Very soon other charges were entrusted to him, such as that of Visitor of the Benedictine Order of Val- lombrosa, of the Monastery of Monte Senario, of the Servants of Mary and of other various re- ligious communities and houses. But the great work which is linked to the name of St. Giovanni Leonardi, was the foundation of the College of Propaganda Fide, in which he was most authorita- tive counsellor of Monsignor Vires who conceived the idea of such a foundation. The college thanks to the encouragement of the Saint, began, in 1603, in the very house of the above mentioned Prelate. Very soon the utility of this in- stitution became much appreciated and Pope Urban VIII placed it under the direct dependence of the Holy See and gave it its name. Today that College is one of the most beneficial institutions of the Roman Church. In the midst of this multiform activity St. Giovanni Leonardi was approaching the end of his life. More than once he celebrated the General Chapter of his commun- ity and the last time was in 1608 on the very eve of his death. He fell ill at the beginning of the summer of 1609, but continued the spiritual direction of his broth- ors. He died October 8, 1609. Pope Paul V, on hearing the news of his death, said that a great Serv- ant of God had died. His' body was buried in the Church of Santa Maria in Portico where, in 1861, after he was beatified by Pope Plus IX, it was placed under a monumental altar erected in his honor by special concession of the Holy See.

(E).The classroom is the place to begin to establish the Catholic Press, to inaugurate tl,e campaign for its promotion, the Roy. JerDme W. DePencier, O. S. M., of Chicago, Editor of The Servite and Vice President of the Catholic Press Association, declared Wednesday in an address to the thirty-fifth annual meeting of the National Catholic Educational Association here. "Because press and school strive for the same objective it is fit- ting that a representative of the Catholic Press Association should be among the first to greet this assembly of the Catholic Educa- tional Association," Father De- Pencier said, "and should .have the opportunity to congratulate you on many noteworthy achieve- ments of the past year and to as- sure you of our best wishes and earnest prayers for continued suc- cos. Lack of Circulation Is Weakness "Because the Catholic Press and the Catholic school advance to their common objective over dif- ferent highways it is but an every- day norm of common prudence that the two columns be joined in such perfect liaison that every undertaking, every tactic, every aim of the one is perfectly under- stood and supported by the other." Asserting that "the weakness of the Catholic Press is lack of cir- culation," and that this deficiency "has long been recognized and subjected to vigorous treatment," Father DePencier added that "cold figures are conclusive evi- dence that whatever we ha'e done is not enough." "Heretofore the Catholic Press has asked support chiefly of an adult audience," Father DePen- cier continued. "If my analysis is correct, if all, or part, of our audi- ence based its judgment and con- duct on a premise of false value, if it is hardened in unsympathe- tic ways, then our appeal strikes deafened ears and the result never can be other than disappointing. 8h0uld $rt i Classroonl "It is the vocatlon o the edu- cator to inspire youth with noble ideals, to teach and train the young in correct habits. In our schools mere babies learn that not on bread alone doth man live, while ardent adolescence is hab- ituated ever to increase in wisdom and grace. Here, then, is the place to establish the Catholic Press. Here we should open our cam- paign. Press and School Cooperate "There always has been cordial cooperation between Catholic Press and Catholic School. The Press unfailingly has defended the right and very existence of the School; it has reported and ap- plauded the efforts and sugges- tions of Catholic educators; it has striven to enlist interest in both the current activities and general welfare of the school. On their part the schools invariably have rallied to the support of the Press; they have joined actively in drives for circulation (as recently in Cleveland, where the schools have secured almost thirty-five thou- sand new and renewed subscrlp, tions for the Universe Bulletin).
